Understanding deep learning vs machine learning
It can seem difficult to grasp the latest developments in artificial intelligence (AI), but if you’re keen to learn the fundamentals, you can break many AI technologies down to two concepts: machine learning and deep learning.
Research Released: Households That Have 15% More to Spend in Retirement Do This
According a 2019 study by Harlow, Brown, and Jenks, households who use a financial advisor are able to spend 15% more in retirement on average than non-advised households.

ML and NLP Research Highlights of 2020
Instead, recent approaches jointly trained retrieval models and large language models, which led to strong results on knowledge-intensive NLP tasks such as open-domain question answering (Guu et al., 2020; Lewis et al., 2020) and language modelling (Khandelwal et al., 2020).
