What Kagglers are using for Text Classification

With the problem of Image Classification is more or less solved by Deep learning, Text Classification is the next new developing theme in deep learning. For those who don’t know, Text classification is a common task in natural language processing, which transforms a sequence of text of indefinite length into a category of text. How […]

Faster Neural Networks Straight from JPEG

Uber AI Labs introduces a method for making neural networks that process images faster and more accurately by leveraging JPEG representations. Neural networks, an important tool for processing data in a variety of industries, grew from an academic research area to a cornerstone of industry over the last few years. Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have […]

Using AI and satellite imagery for disaster insights

A framework for using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) on satellite imagery to identify the areas most severely affected by a disaster. This new method has the potential to produce more accurate information in far less time than current manual methods. Ultimately, the goal of this research is to allow rescue workers to quickly identify where […]

Matplotlib—Making data visualization interesting

Data visualization is a key step to understand the dataset and draw inferences from it. While one can always closely inspect the data row by row, cell by cell, it’s often a tedious task and does not highlight the big picture. Visuals on the other hand, define data in a form that is easy to […]

Easy-To-Read Summary of Important AI Research Papers of 2018

Trying to keep up with AI research papers can feel like an exercise in futility given how quickly the industry moves. If you’re buried in papers to read that you haven’t quite gotten around to, you’re in luck. To help you catch up, we’ve summarized 10 important AI research papers from 2018 to give you […]

Amazon makes its machine learning courses available for free

Amazon announced today that it’s making its range of machine learning courses available to all developers signed up to its AWS platform for free. This program was previously available only to Amazon employees, but anyone can now take advantage of it at no charge by signing up to Amazon Web Services’ free plan. It includes […]

Montezuma’s Revenge Solved by Go-Explore, a New Algorithm for Hard-exploration Problems

In deep reinforcement learning (RL), solving the Atari games Montezuma’s Revenge and Pitfall has been a grand challenge. These games represent a broad class of challenging, real-world problems called “hard-exploration problems,” where an agent has to learn complex tasks with very infrequent or deceptive feedback. The state-of-the-art algorithm on Montezuma’s Revenge gets an average score […]

FastMRI open source tools from Facebook and NYU

Facebook AI Research (FAIR) and NYU School of Medicine’s Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI²R) are sharing new open source tools and data as part of fastMRI, a joint research project to spur development of AI systems to speed MRI scans by up to 10x. Today’s releases include new AI models and baselines […]

Humanizing Customer Complaints using NLP Algorithms

Last Christmas, I went through the most frustrating experience as a consumer. I was doing some last minute holiday shopping and after standing in a long line, I finally reached the blessed register only to find out that my debit card was blocked. I could sense the old lady at the register judging me with […]
