Things that Aren’t Working in Deep Learning

Summary:  This may be the golden age of deep learning but a lot can be learned by looking at where deep neural nets aren’t working yet.  This can be a guide to calming the hype.  It can also be a roadmap to future opportunities once these barriers are behind us.

 

We are living in the golden age of deep…

What is the Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Science and what is the difference between them?

What is an artificial intelligence (AI)?

Most of us can not imagine a single day without a computer. With the rapid development of technology, various devices that simplify people's lives become more accessible. This is also connected with modern computers, which are capable of providing impressive fast processing of information.

     Modern business uses the full potential of information technology. This allows you to store important data and manage it…

To PhD or not to PhD?

 

...That is the question.

 

Further study often seems the most appealing route to go down, and for many companies out there it’s often heralded as a must have for data science, but it isn’t always so and isn’t always pivotal in advancing your career.

 

To Ph.D.

 

A Ph.D. is your own original, unique research…

Improving Real-Time Object Detection with YOLO

In recent years, the field of object detection has seen tremendous progress, aided by the advent of deep learning. Object detection is the task of identifying objects in an image and drawing bounding boxes around them, i.e. localizing them. It’s a very important problem in computer vision due its numerous applications from self-driving cars to security and tracking.

Prior approaches of object detection…

Operational Data and Social Justice

I spotted an interesting book in my local library recently:  The Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada [1].  I thought to myself, our government spent considerable resources on this commission.  I should at least browse through the final report.  I flipped through the first few pages.  I found a note saying that the contents are public domain.  In this blog, I reproduce some of the contents of the report to create a setting for my discussion on operational data. …

Tricks in Face Recognition

Last year I started developing a Face Recognition model. I started with static pictures and using Wolfram Mathematica. This year I found out we can do the same job using OpenCV in Python, or creating specific filters in R and applying Weierstrass and Gaussian transformation.

There are lots of difficulties in recognizing faces of the same person, like: position, rotation of face, age, feeling, brightness, gamma, contrast, gamma, saturation, obstacles like hands,hair and so…

Development as Art - Hopscotch and Robots

When I read a blog, I often find myself in deep thought as I approach the end, trying to determine if the author has said anything that I might be able to use. A blog doesn't have to say anything. Nor does it have to be useful to me specifically. It might simply offer a personal reflection on life. As a person who also writes blogs, I…

True Freedom - Algorithmic Man Unplugged

Thermometers and scales to measure weight appeared in retail outlets long ago. Blood pressure monitors perhaps came later. Pedometers and heart-rate monitors seem more recent - possibly closer to my time. I saw several devices while doing this blog intended to electronically record among other things hours of sleep; these are designed to be worn on the body all the time. A couple of weeks ago, I bought something to give the heart rate and blood oxygen saturation level. I consider it a real…

Addition of Different Dimensions to Data

I was often the lone wolf among my peers in university because I supported a prominent place in society for corporations and an important social role for capital. I questioned whether the directors and executives of companies entered into boardrooms really intending to “oppress” people such as minorities and people with disabilities. Did they deliberately make bathrooms inaccessible to people in wheelchairs perhaps to advance their preconceptions of who gets to go to the bathroom, I pondered…
