Computer Vision Helping ICU Care by Spotting Movement

AI is set to disrupt every field and every industry. Healthcare, in particular, seems primed for disruption. Here’s an interesting project out of Stanford. “One of the really exciting things about computer vision is that it’s this powerful measuring tool,” said Yeung, who will be joining the faculty of Stanford’s department of biomedical data science […]

The Existential Risks of AI and Biotechnology and What Does Humanity’s Future Hold

Here’s a video focusing on the “existential risks” facing humanity and why the 21st century is like no other. While I think some of this is fear mongering, the video does raise some interesting ethical and policy questions. Threats from artificial intelligence and biotechnology might wipe out humanity as we know it. The nature and […]

24 Fundamental Articles on the Nature of Data Science

Many people new to data science might believe that this field is just about R, Python, Spark, Hadoop, SQL, traditional machine learning techniques or statistical modeling. While those technologies are a large part of the field, the answer is more nuanced than that. Here’s a thoughtful article from Vincent Granville on Data Science Central about this […]

Lambda Calculus

Whether you realize it or not, lambda calculus has already impacted your world as a data scientist or a developer. If you’ve played around in functional programming languages like Haskell or F#, then you are familiar some of the same ideas. In fact, AWS’s serverless product is named Lambda after this branch of mathematics. Watch […]

Physicists Train Oscillatory Neural Network to Recognize Images

Here’s an interesting article on “oscillatory neural networks” and how physicists trained it to perform image recognition. An oscillatory neural network is a complex interlacing of interacting elements (oscillators) that are able to receive and transmit oscillations of a certain frequency. Receiving signals of various frequencies from preceding elements, the artificial neuron oscillator can synchronize […]

Kicking Neural Network Design Automation into High Gear

Here’s another article on the advances made on neural network design. A new area in artificial intelligence involves using algorithms to automatically design machine-learning systems known as neural networks, which are more accurate and efficient than those developed by human engineers. But this so-called neural architecture search (NAS) technique is computationally expensive. A state-of-the-art NAS […]

GauGAN Neural Network Makes Masterpieces Out of Doodles

Soon, AI will make artists of us all — no matter how well (or how poorly) you can draw. Check out this article on GauGAN. The neural network isn’t simply replacing doodles and shapes with photorealistic images of rocks, mountains, skies, or water. In addition to taking into account the original shape of the drawing, […]
