Machine Learning


Cloud computing provides the power and speed needed for Machine Learning (ML), and allows you to easily scale up and down. However, this also means that costs may spin out of control if you don’t plan ahead, which is especially fraught now, given that businesses are particularly cost conscious. To use Google Cloud effectively for …

PyTorch is helping to power a new generation of AI-enhanced farming machines. For farmers, weeds pose a very real threat to the health of crops at a time when global population growth is raising food demand while also making resources such as land and water increasingly scarce. Seeking solutions to helping farmers produce more food with fewer …

Business intelligence workflows at any organization can help the business make better decisions, like where to expand your company and how to most effectively deploy your resources. My work as a data analyst, open data advocate, and former lead of the Google Cloud Public Datasets Program has given me a broad view into how data teams develop …

After what has started to feel like a boundless eternity of wearing masks, bathing in hand sanitizer, and dodging people in the grocery store, many of us have been left thinking: what would a COVID-19 vaccine look like? Different approaches to the challenge have looked at targeting the so-called “spike proteins” that cover the virus …

Can you recognize a digitally manipulated video when you see one? It’s harder than most people realize. As the technology to produce realistic “deepfakes” becomes more easily available, distinguishing fact from fiction will only get more challenging. A new digital storytelling project from CSAIL researcher D. Fox Harrell aims to educate the public about the world …

For large-scale social networks, testing a proposed code update or new feature is a complex and challenging task. In person and also online, people act and interact with one another in ways that are sometimes difficult for traditional algorithms to model or replicate. People’s behavior evolves and adapts over time and is different from one …

Artificial intelligence has become a focus of certain ethical concerns, but it also has some major sustainability issues. Last June, researchers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst released a startling report estimating that the amount of power required for training and searching a certain neural network architecture involves the emissions of roughly 626,000 pounds of carbon …

“It’s not rocket science” may be a tired cliché, but that doesn’t mean designing rockets is any less complicated. Time, cost and safety prohibit testing the stability of a test rocket using a physical build “trial and error” approach. But even computational simulations are extremely time consuming. A single analysis of an entire SpaceX Merlin …

Intel and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) announced that they have been selected to lead a Guaranteeing Artificial Intelligence (AI) Robustness against Deception (GARD) program team for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Intel is the prime contractor in this four-year, multimillion-dollar joint effort to improve cybersecurity defenses against deception attacks on …

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, highlighted that more organizations are using Red Hat OpenShift as the foundation for building artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) data science workflows and AI-powered intelligent applications. OpenShift helps to provide agility, flexibility, portability and scalability across the hybrid cloud, from cloud infrastructure to edge …
