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.

Understanding Generative Adversarial Networks - Part II

In "Understanding Generative Adversarial Networks - Part I" you gained a conceptual understanding of how GAN works. In this post let us get a mathematical understanding of GANs.
The loss functions can be designed most easily using the idea of zero-sum games. 
The sum of the costs of all players is 0. This is the Minimax algorithm for GANs
Let’s break it down.
Some terminology: V(D, G) : The value function for a minimax game E(X) : Expectation of a random variable X, also equal to its average value D(x) : The discriminator output for an input x from real data, represents probability G(z): The generator's output when its given z from the noise distribution D(G(z)): Combining the above, this represents the output of the discriminator when 
given a generated image G(z) as input
Now, as explained above, the discriminator is the maximizer and hence it tries to 
maximize

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 come out, but the underlying conc…
