Machine Learning


Machine learning technology continues to improve at a rapid pace, with increasingly accurate models being used to solve more complex problems. However, with this increased accuracy comes greater complexity. This complexity makes debugging models more challenging. To help with this, last November Google Cloud introduced Explainable AI, a tool designed to help data scientists improve their …

For all the progress researchers have made with machine learning in helping us doing things like crunch numbers, drive cars and detect cancer, we rarely think about how energy-intensive it is to maintain the massive data centers that make such work possible. Indeed, a 2017 study predicted that, by 2025, internet-connected devices would be using 20 …

Being a cybersecurity analyst at a large company today is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack — if that haystack were hurtling toward you at fiber optic speed. Every day, employees and customers generate loads of data that establish a normal set of behaviors. An attacker will also generate data while …

Battery performance can make or break the electric vehicle experience, from driving range to charging time to the lifetime of the car. Now, artificial intelligence has made dreams like recharging an EV in the time it takes to stop at a gas station a more likely reality, and could help improve other aspects of battery …

We are sharing an in-depth characterization and analysis for infrastructures used to deliver personalized results in deep neural network-based (DNN) recommendation at scale. Although DNNs are often used to help generate search results, to provide content suggestions, and for other common applications for internet services, relatively little research attention has been devoted to optimizing system …

HiPlot is a lightweight interactive visualization tool to help AI researchers discover correlations and patterns in high-dimensional data. It uses parallel plots and other graphical ways to represent information more clearly, and it can be run quickly from a Jupyter notebook with no setup required. HiPlot enables machine learning (ML) researchers to more easily evaluate …

Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Second Spectrum, the Official Optical Tracking and Analytics Provider of sports leagues such as the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the English Premier League, has chosen AWS as its preferred cloud, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI) provider. Second Spectrum has also selected AWS media services to help …

“The world needs to prepare for pandemics in the same serious way it prepares for war.”  This is according to Bill Gates in a lecture for the Massachusetts Medical Society. He said that the sense of urgency when it comes to biological threats is quite lacking. As a commitment, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation …

CCMatrix is the largest data set of high-quality, web-based bitexts for training translation models. With more than 4.5 billion parallel sentences in 576 language pairs pulled from snapshots of the CommonCrawl public data set, CCMatrix is more than 50 times larger than the WikiMatrix corpus that we shared last year. Gathering a data set of this size …

Artificial intelligence has the potential to greatly simplify our lives – but not everyone is a data scientist and not all data scientists are experts in machine learning. Enter AutoAI – a novel approach of designing, training and optimizing machine learning models automatically. With AutoAI, anyone could soon build machine learning pipelines from raw data directly, …
