The Tree of Machine Learning Algorithms

October 10, 2017

The Tree of Machine Learning Algorithms is a simplified schema to rationalize the types of learning paradigms used by categories of algorithms. Just as a tree’s branches grow stronger and wider with an expansive network of roots, the machine learning tree is strengthened using a network of data. Data can be structured or unstructured, involve transactions… Read More »

Is that a bully in your sentence?

October 5, 2017

What if your computer knew what you were typing? What if it knew you were bullying someone online? Would you still type those words, aware that your computer knows you are being hurtful?

Artificial Intelligence Unstuck: How Competition, Not Bureaucracy, is Moving AI Forward

October 4, 2017

A recent article in The New York Times by Gary Marcus argues AI is an industry lost on the road to progress. He says to reach human-like intelligence, it needs a top-down approach — like the physics community took with CERN to create the Large Hadron Collider — instead of relying on today’s approaches. Marcus… Read More »

What today’s machine learning and AI is and is not

August 4, 2017

All artificial intelligence methods today are around machine learning modeling and use some form of sophisticated correlation or association method, which can be approximated to brute-force robot learning. It is about reverse engineering existing features/patterns and providing useful “forward engineering” solutions like: Self-driving cars Detecting diseases from X-rays/MRIs Robots in manufacturing Chatbots for customer service… Read More »
