How is AI Saving the Future

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.

Implement XOR in Tensorflow

XOR is considered as the 'Hello World' of Neural Networks. It seems like the best problem to try your first TensorFlow program.

Tensorflow makes it easy to build a neural network with few tweaks. All you have to do is make a graph and you have a neural network that learns the XOR function.

Why XOR? Well, XOR is the reason why backpropogation was invented in the first place. A single layer perceptron although quite successful in learning the AND and OR functions, can't learn XOR (Table 1) as it is just a linear classifier, and XOR is a linearly inseparable pattern (Figure 1). Thus the single layer perceptron goes into a panic mode while learning XOR – it can't just do that. 

Deep Propogation algorithm comes for the rescue. It learns an XOR by adding two lines L1 and L2 (Figure 2). This post assumes you know how the backpropogation algorithm works.



Following are the steps to implement the neural network in Figure 3 for XOR in Tensorflow:
1. Import necessary libraries

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 worl…

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. The regression so…
