How can we increase the diversity in AI talent?
This is a subject close to my heart
Despite being quite well known in AI (for our pioneering work and teaching at the #universityofoxford for #AI and #edge) and also being the Chief AI Officer of a venture funded company in Germany, I would not pass many of…Continue

Are you a leader or a laggard or an aspirant in AI?
This is a subject close to my heart because I focus my teaching / research and consulting towards the leader end or AI – where the competitive advantages create exponential gains for companies and people
There is a great article from Mc Kinsey called…Continue
Last week, I taught a cybersecurity course at the University of Oxford case. I created a case study for my class based on an excellent recent paper: Deep Learning-Based Autonomous Driving Systems: A Survey of Attacks and Defences (link below)
This paper is unique because it discussed emerging cyber security…Continue

In the last post, I discussed about augmented reality applications and their implications for AI
In this post, I will discuss virtual realty applications
I am very interested in combining AR/ VR with the Digital twin based on my work at the #universityofoxford
Both these ideas (AR+VR and also the Digital Twin) add a…Continue

Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information. AR can be defined as a system that fulfills three basic features: a combination of real and virtual worlds, real-time interaction, and accurate 3D…Continue

Last week, I saw a nice presentation on Probabilistic Programming from a student in Iran (link below).
I am interested in this subject for my teaching at the #universityofoxford. In this post, I provide a brief introduction to Probabilistic programming. Probabilistic programming is a programming paradigm designed to implement and solve…Continue

At my AI course in the University of Oxford, we are exploring the use of PyTorch for the first time.
One of the best libraries to get started with PyTorch is fast.ai.
There are various ways to learn fast.ai.
For most people, the fast.ai course is their first exposure.
There is now a book…Continue

Last week, Nokia announced 10,000 jobs lost worldwide. Telecoms is a cyclical business with the G cycles (roughly spanning seven years) ex 3G, 4G etc – driving the ups and downs in employment. However, there is more at stake here because the Telecoms industry is fundamentally changing.

This blog is the second part in a series. The first part is The Bayesian vs frequentist approaches: implications for machine learning – Part One
In part one, we summarized that:
There are three key points to…Continue

The arguments / discussions between the Bayesian vs frequentist approaches in statistics are long running. I am interested in how these approaches impact machine learning. Often, books on machine learning combine the two approaches, or in some cases, take only one approach. This does not help from a learning…Continue

I was asked this question: “What distributions do we need to use Deep Learning?”
This is a question with a multi-faceted answer.
The direct answer is that algorithms which are traditionally referred to as deep learning (MLP, CNN, LSTM) do not need to know the distribution in advance since they…Continue

5G is critical to many business applications.
Below is a great free opensource book to get started with 5G.
But first, here are five reasons why you should study 5G
If you want to deploy broadband within the Enterprise – there are two main options: rely on WiFi or work with the public telecom…Continue

The title of this blog is accurate
There are indeed some caveats / disadvantages to automated machine learning.
This blog was motivated by a question in my University of Oxford class effectively asking:
Will automated machine learning take over all the data scientists’ tasks?
If you listen to the…Continue

For my own research and teaching, I follow AI papers. Here is a list of papers I find interesting. I analysed 3 lists (links below) as meta-references for lists of good papers
From that list and also my own interests, here is a set of papers I find interesting in 2020

There are six broad questions which can be answered in data analysis according to an article called “What is the question?” By Jeffery T. Leek, Roger D. Peng. These questions help to frame our thinking of data science problems. Here, I propose that these questions also provide a unified framework for relating statistics…Continue
