OpenAI and future of AI

With the advent of AI in almost every industry, right from self driving cars to robot nurses, there is a general concern as to how AI might impact humanity. Although AI offers a lot including medical industry and space exploration, it is slowly making a pathway into every technology. The presence of AI can be felt on every device including mobile phones. There is a general belief that AI is a threat to humanity. The reach of AI in every aspect of our life is inevitable. So how do we make sure that it benefits humanity as a whole?

Elon Musk along with other visionaries have come together to take up the baton to help the AI community to work towards a common goal – to make AI benefit humanity. OpenAI is planning to establish itself as a leading non-profit research institution. To make its research accessible to all, OpenAI will collaborate with other institutions and researchers to make their research open source.

To know more about OpenAI follow their official website which as of now only has one blog post - https://www.openai.com/blog/introducing-openai/

We at Cerelabs are optimistic about the role of OpenAI, and will closely follow it to understand how we can contribute towards the vision of making AI benefit humanity.

GPU - The brain of Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning algorithms require tens and thousands of CPU based servers to train a model, which turns out to be an expensive activity. Machine Learning researchers and engineers are often faced with the problem of running their algorithms fast. Although initially invented for processing graphics in computer games, GPUs today are used in machine learning to perform feature detection from vast amount of unlabeled data. Compared to CPUs, GPUs take far less time to train models that perform classification and prediction. Characteristics of GPUs that make them ideal for machine learning Handle large datasets Needs far less data centre infrastructure Can be specialized for specific machine learning needs Perform vector computations faster than any known processor Designed to perform data parallel computation NVIDIA CUDA GPUs today are used to build deep learning image processing tools for  Adobe Creative Cloud. According to NVIDIA blog future Adobe applicati

Understanding Generative Adverserial Networks - Part 1

This is a two part series on understanding Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). This part deals with the conceptual understanding of GANs. In the second part we will try to understand the mathematics behind GANs. Generative networks have been in use for quite a while now. And so have discriminative networks. But only in 2014 did someone get the brilliant idea of using them together. These are the generative adversarial networks. This kind of deep learning model was invented by Ian Goodfellow . When we work with data already labelled, it’s called supervised learning. It’s much easier compared to unsupervised learning, which has no predefined labels, making the task more vague.  "Generative Adversarial Networks is the most interesting idea in the last ten years in Machine Learning." - Yann LeCun In this post, we’ll discuss what GANs are and how they work, at a higher , more abstract level. Since 2014, many variations of the traditional GAN have co

Anomaly Detection based on Prediction - A Step Closer to General Artificial Intelligence

Anomaly detection refers to the problem of finding patterns that do not conform to expected behavior [1]. In the last article "Understanding Neocortex to Create Intelligence" , we explored how applications based on the workings of neocortex create intelligence. Pattern recognition along with prediction makes human brains the ultimate intelligent machines. Prediction help humans to detect anomalies in the environment. Before every action is taken, neocortex predicts the outcome. If there is a deviation from the expected outcome, neocortex detects anomalies, and will take necessary steps to handle them. A system which claims to be intelligent, should have anomaly detection in place. Recent findings using research on neocortex have made it possible to create applications that does anomaly detection. Numenta’s NuPIC using Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) framework is able to do inference and prediction, and hence anomaly detection. HTM accurately predicts anomalies in real
