Machine Learning (ML) appears to be the ubiquitous go-to solution for a great many modern problems across many domains. But what is really under the hood of a typical ML solution? And, why are so many problems suddenly becoming good ML candidates? This webinar explores non-mathematically the foundational aspects of ML and how they add up to a satisfactory
Topic: Machine Learning (ML)
The Trump administration is proposing new rules to guide future federal regulation of artificial intelligence used in medicine, transportation and other industries.
Not too long ago, it was considered state of the art research to make a computer distinguish cats vs dogs. Now image classification is 'Hello World' of Machine Learning (ML), something one can implement in just a few lines of code using TensorFlow.
Google's search engine will now better understand your confusing search queries, the company said Friday. Google said it's updating the tool to improve analysis of natural language. The idea is to let people type in queries that reflect how they speak in real life, instead of entering a string of keywords they think the software is more likely to understand.
Researchers have demonstrated a new algorithm for detecting so-called deepfake images-those altered imperceptibly by AI systems, potentially for nefarious purposes. Initial tests of the algorithm picked out phony from undoctored images down to the individual pixel level with between 71 and 95 percent accuracy, depending on the sample data set used. The
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are exploiting state DMV records for facial recognition data without the knowledge or permission of drivers.
The U.S. intelligence community's research arm wants to train algorithms to track people across sprawling video surveillance networks, and it needs more data to do it.
Large data volumes (aka “big data”) coupled with the use of new technologies can greatly increase the amount of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data collected by an organization. Correspondingly, there has been an escalation of security breaches involving PII data which has contributed to the loss of millions of records over the past few years. The
In a paper that will be presented at the renowned IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy in San Francisco this May, a group from Prof. Ben Zhao and Prof. Heather Zheng's SAND Lab describe the first generalized defense against these backdoor attacks in neural networks.
It may be difficult to figure out where and how Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its various sub-types (Machine Learning, Deep Learning, etc.) fit into our world as we move into the future. In some cases it seems straightforward; AI/ML speech recognition is astoundingly good and can be applied across many domains in a meaningful way. This edition of the
