Meanwhile the talk of AI being the number one risk of human extinction is going on, there are lot many ways it is helping humanity. Recent developments in Machine Learning are helping scientists to solve difficult problems ranging from climate change to finding the cure for cancer.

It will be a daunting task for humans to understand enormous amount of data that is generated all over the world. Machine Learning is helping scientists to use algorithms that learn from data and find patterns.

Below is a list of few of the problems AI is working on to help find solutions which otherwise would not have been possible:

  • Cancer Diagnostics: Recently, scientists at University of California (UCLA) applied Deep Learning to extract features for achieving high accuracy in label-free cell classification. This technique will help in faster cancer diagnostics, and thus will save a lot of lives.

  • Low Cost Renewable Energy: Artificial-intelligence is helping wind power forecasts of unprecedented accuracy that are making it possible for Colorado to use far more renewable energy, at lower cost.

  • Global Conservation: National Science Foundation (NSF) funded researchers are using Artificial Intelligence to solve poaching and illegal logging. They have created an AI-driven application called Protection Assistant for Wildlife Security (PAWS) which has led to significant improvements when tested in Uganda and Malaysia in 2014, thus protecting forests and wildlife.

  • Precision Based Medicine: AI is turning out to be a powerful tool for precision-based medicine, where treatments are tailored made. Custom diagnostics and treatments seems possible because of the recent advancements in AI.

We at Cere Labs are continuously thinking how we can develop applications based on AI that can help humanity, especially in healthcare. We will keep you updated of the progress we make in this area. AI is not just about robots winning a game of chess or  a game of GO.

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 Projection Pursuit Regression

The following article gives an overview of the paper "Projection Pursuit Regression” published by Friedman J. H and Stuetzle W. You will need basic background of Machine Learning and Regression before understanding this article. The algorithms and images are taken from the paper. ( http://www.stat.washington.edu/courses/stat527/s13/readings/FriedmanStuetzle_JASA_1981.pdf )  What is Regression? Regression is a machine learning technology used to predict a response variable given multiple predictor variables or features. The main distinction is that the response to be predicted is any real value and not just any class or cluster name. Hence though similar to Classification in terms of making a prediction, it is largely different given what it’s predicting.  A simple to understand real world problem of regression would be predicting the sale price of a particular house based on it’s square footage, given that we have data of similar houses sold in that area in the past.

AlfaGo and the Future

What does it mean for Deep Learning to recently beat Go champion Lee Sedol? Or what did it mean back in 1997 for Deep Blue to beat chess champion Garry Kasparov? Is the purpose of AI to only demonstrate that it can win against humans, or is it much more than winning? Such wins demonstrate the capabilities of AI, and open up new avenues for the tools and techniques used. In the case of Deep Blue developed by IBM, it was better search and evaluation algorithms, combined with a supercomputer to defeat a world champion. Similar AI algorithms were then applied to other applications including search engines. AI community continued its fascination of winning in games involving intelligence, with IBM Watson turning out to be a winner of quiz show Jeopardy. Watson even received the first place prize of $1 million. The AI techniques such as Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning that Watson used to win the competition are today driving the Watson Cloud Platform to understan
