Pervasive Simulator Misuse with Reinforcement Learning

Pervasive Simulator ...

The surge of interest in reinforcement learning is great fun, but I often see confused choices in applying RL algorithms to solve problems. There are two purposes for which you might use a world simulator in reinforcement learning: Reinforcement Learning Research: You might be interested in creating reinforcement learning algorithms for the real world and use the […]

For Machine Learning Beginners: A Source for Core Concepts

For Machine Learning...

To solve machine learning problems, there is a wide range of different techniques and methods required, some suited better than others. As a data scientist it can be difficult to encapsulate all of them, and choose which work best for specific scenarios. If one is starting out in this space, it suits to understand the […]

Google Makes AI Education Accessible and Free for Everyone

Google Makes AI Educ...

When people Google “resources to learn AI” or a variation of those keywords to educate themselves about the major risings in artificial intelligence, machine learning and related fields, countless blogs, courses and bootcamps appear in the search feed. Paralysis by analysis ensues. What resource do you choose? What is the cost? What is the time […]

McKinsey’s Suc...

Day in and day out, news headlines, blog articles, Youtube channels and more feature the different ways in which technology regularly impacts various aspects of business. A keyword through all of the talk and noise is “AI.” The term, “artificial intelligence” might just be the buzzword of 2018. As the AI race continues and grows […]

What are data scienc...

Let’s start with machine learning In short, machine learning algorithms are algorithms that learn (often predictive) models from data. I.e., instead of formulating “rules” manually, a machine learning algorithm will learn the model for you. So, let me give you an example to illustrate what that means! Say you are interested in implementing a spam […]

Senate Intelligence Briefing Features AI and Decision Advantage

Senate Intelligence ...

This month’s senate intelligence meeting is probably the most important two-hour video you should make time to watch this week, especially if you are interested in the intersection between AI, DI, and national security.  Also some important cautions about Internet of Things (IOT) security. Some important quotes: https://youtu.be/7OVVbrTP18g?t=38m41s Admiral Mark Rogers: “Clearly I think we […]

Random Forest Classification of Mushrooms

Random Forest Classi...

There is a plethora of classification algorithms available to people who have a bit of coding experience and a set of data. A common machine learning method is the random forest, which is a good place to start. This is a use case in R of the randomForest package used on a data set from UCI’s Machine Learning Data Repository. […]

NAVIGATING THE R PACKAGE UNIVERSE

NAVIGATING THE R PAC...

There are more than 11,000 packages on CRAN, and R users must approach this abundance of packages with effective strategies to find what they need and choose which packages to invest time in learning how to use. Our session centered on this issue, with three themes in our discussion.
