“A Citizen’s Guide To Artificial Intelligence”: A Nice Focus On The Societal Impact Of AI
The difference between supervised and unsupervised learning is in knowing what you’re looking for: · Supervised: “Hey, here’s attack XYZ!” · Unsupervised learning: “Hey, here’s this weird thing that might be an attack!” So skim chapter one to get to the good stuff.
Ready for a Diet That Doesn’t Feel Like a Diet?
Are you trying to lose weight? It seems like everyone is these days. But the fact is, being overweight isn’t really the problem; it’s the symptom. We all know we should eat less, and exercise more. How? Noom can help you answer these questions. More than a simple weight-loss program, Noom is a complete lifestyle management system, a behavioral health program—both mental and physical—that pinpoints the issues that cause you to put on pounds.

BMW’s Virtual Factory Uses AI to Hone the Assembly Line
BMW’s Virtual Factory Uses AI to Hone the Assembly Line The German automaker uses new software from chipmaker Nvidia to simulate train robots and human workers. Well before any new parts roll off the production line, the entire manufacturing process will run in stunningly realistic detail inside a...
Artificial Intelligence could 'crack the language of cancer and Alzheimer's'
Powerful algorithms used by Netflix, Amazon and Facebook can 'predict' the biological language of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, scientists have found. Big data produced during decades of research was fed into a computer language model to see if artificial intelligence can...
What is ‘Machine Learning’?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is defined as ‘the theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence’. From reinforcement learning, semi-supervised learning, self-learning, feature learning, sparse dictionary learning, anomaly detection and robot...
Applied use cases
Edge Impulse and TinyML on Raspberry Pi
There is also support for object detection, exclusively on the Raspberry Pi; you can train a custom object detection model using camera data taken on your own Raspberry Pi, and then deploy and use this custom model, rather than relying on a pretrained stock image classification model.

This Robot Taught Itself to Walk in a Simulation—Then Went for a Stroll in Berkeley
Recently, in a Berkeley lab, a robot called Cassie taught itself to walk, a little like a toddler might. Through trial and error, it learned to move in a simulated world. It’s the first time a machine learning approach known as reinforcement learning has been so successfully applied in two-legged...
Warm feelings about human-looking robots can turn icy when bots blunder
In a series of studies on robots used in service industry settings, such as restaurants and hotels, the researchers found that people's reactions to robot gaffes may be influenced by whether the robots look like humans, or humanoid; or mostly lack human features, or non-humanoid.
Neuralink's brain-computer interface demo shows a monkey playing Pong
Now Neuralink is demonstrating its progress by showing a Macaque with one of the Link chips playing Pong. We have implanted the Link in the hand and arm areas of the motor cortex, a part of the brain that is involved in planning and executing movements.
As a result, we obtain holes, namely, regions in the latent space where the aggregated posterior assigns low probability while the prior assigns (relatively) high probability (see a dark gray ellipse in Figure 2). Therefore, we can use the Mixture of Gaussians (MoG) prior with components: Similarly...
