Could GPT-3 Change The Way Future AI Models Are Developed and Deployed ?

Much has been said about GPT-3 already.

With its 175 billion parameters and a massive corpus of data on which it is trained – GPT-3 is already enabling some innovative applications

 

But GPT-3 could help pave the way for a new way of developing AI models

 

The GPT-3 paper is called…

A taxonomy of explainable (XAI) AI models

I am reading a very interesting paper called Principles and Practice of Explainable Machine Learning by

Vaishak Belle (University of Edinburgh & Alan Turing Institute) and Ioannis Papantonis (University of Edinburgh) which presents a taxonomy of explainable AI (XAI).

 

XAI is a complex subject…

The implications of Huang’s law for the Artificial Intelligence stack

 Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang proposed an idea which the media has labelled ‘Huang’s law’ along the lines of Moore’s law.

 

Moore’s predicts that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles every two years.

 

As per Huang’s law, GPU performance will double every two years.

 

Whether or not you…

Free book - Cloud Native, Containers and Next-Gen Apps

 

I always seek good resources for my teaching at #universityofoxford and this is a great free book on Cloud native – a topic that is very much in the focus

 

The book needs a free registration and is provided as a full ebook by d2iq.

 

D2iq was formerly mesosphere – the commercial arm of mesos – but…

Free book - Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents

Free book - Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents

There are many excellent free books on Python – but Artificial Intelligence: Foundations of Computational Agents is about  a subject not commonly covered

I found the book useful as a introduction to Reinforcement Learning

As the title…

What is the connection between AI, Cloud-Native and Edge devices?

 

I was asked this question: What is the connection between AI, Cloud-Native and Edge devices?

  

On first impressions, it sounds like an amalgamation of every conceivable buzzword around - but I think there is a coherent answer which points to a business need. 

 

Let us…

Which machine learning / deep learning algorithm to use by problem type

I like to approach algorithms from the perspective of problem solving. I created this list from a Mc Kinsey document (link below). It’s a good indicative approach. In practice,

Predict housing prices

How to design a biased algorithm .. insights from the UK

 

Background

Last week, the UK witnessed chaos over exam results (GCSE and A-levels).

The fiasco also provided a textbook case on how to build a biased algorithm.

Sadly, this will be the shape of things to come.

These decisions were overturned because of the backlash – but many more…

It's tempting to think that GP3 will solve all NLP problems but it does not

In my previous blog what is driving the innovation in nlp and gpt3 , I talked about how GPT3 has evolved from the basic transformer architecture.

Based on that blog, a start-up approached me saying that they had an idea which they felt could only be implemented by GPT3.

They were eagerly waiting to be approved (isn’t everybody - he…

What is s driving the innovation in NLP and GPT-3?

2019 and 2020 have seen rapid strides in NLP

What’s driving the rapid strides in NLP and will this trend continue?

Here is a simple way to explain the rise and rise of NLP

Today, GPT-3 is displaying some amazing results. Some call it more like AGI (Artificial General Intelligence). Created by OpenAI with a large investment from Microsoft, GPT stands for Generative Pretrained Transformer

The three words offer a clue to the success and future…

Feature engine python package for feature engineering

 

In this post, we explore a new python package for feature engineering

 

Feature engineering is the process of using domain knowledge of the data to transform existing features or to create new variables from existing ones, for use in machine learning. Using feature engineering, we can pre-process raw data and make it suitable…

Why do some traditional engineers not trust Data Science?

Introduction

I had this conversation some time ago with an Engineer who came from a traditional background.

By that I mean, he had been in the same industry (heavy engineering) for 30 years.

Of these, he had been in the same company for 25 years (and this was his second job).

 

After understanding from me about data science, he said that as an engineer, he did…

Why we need more Bayesian trained data scientists than frequentist post COVID 19 ..

Earlier this week, I was speaking at an event on AI for Real Estate where I showed an example from a BBC clip which said that “central London is now a ghost town” (due to COVID 19)

A few months ago, this headline would have been laughable

In London, central London and the London underground are a key fabric of daily…

How to approach the study of algorithms?

 

I have been reading a book recently about algorithms in the wider sense

(40 algorithms every programmer should know -book and github link below)

 

I spend a lot of time with algorithms considering my teaching (AI at University of Oxford).

For Machine Learning and Deep Learning, we need to study a…
