7 Machine Learning App Ideas

Practical Machine Learning
Machine Learning Startup Ideas Hi, this post is some kind of giveaway. I want to share couple machine learning app ideas i was thinking about. We all have only 24 hours per day so it’s impossible to try out all ideas which come to our minds. Because of that, it’s sometimes worth to share them, i hope they will inspire you. Enough of introduction, let’s get to the list: Service which will use Machine Learning to allow video streaming without cameraman, using many cameras, always choosing the one with the most interesting content. Let’s think about a local football game, currently you cannot watch local team games if they are not in top leagues. This service, could allow to easily connect for example 4 cameras and start streaming the game.…

The training is performed in a simulated environment in which they randomize many of the physical properties of the system like friction coefficients and an object's appearance. Their policies transfer to the physical robot despite being trained entirely in simulation. This method does not rely on…

Hi! New AI Weekly is here! Enjoy your weekend reading AI news and don’t forget to share it with your friends ;) GENERAL Software beats animal tests at predicting toxicity of chemicals - machine-learning software trained on masses of chemical-safety data is so good at predicting some kinds of toxicity that it now rivals — and sometimes outperforms — expensive animal studies, researchers report. Computer models could replace some standard safety studies conducted on millions of animals each year, such as dropping compounds into rabbits’ eyes to check if they are irritants, or feeding chemicals to rats to work out lethal doses. https://go.nature.com/2LeG3C7 Inside China’s Dystopian Dreams: A.I., Shame and Lots of Cameras - with millions of cameras and billions of lines of code, China is building a high-tech authoritarian…

As reported by Xinhua, the system defeated a team comprised of 15 of China’s top doctors by a margin of two to one. The AI, BioMind, was developed by the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre for Neurological Disorders at Beijing Tiantan Hospital, and is another example of the long line of the technology analyzing images. http://bit.ly/2KFY5Rw No, you don't need ML/AI.

Clearly, facial recognition-powered government surveillance is an extraordinary invasion of the privacy of all citizens — and a slippery slope to losing control of our identities altogether. https://tcrn.ch/2lGTgs8 OpenAI Five - OpenAI team of five neural networks, OpenAI Five, has started to defeat amateur human…

Much like infants and animals, the GQN learns by trying to make sense of its observations of the world around it. In doing so, the GQN learns about plausible scenes and their geometrical properties, without any human labelling of the contents of scenes. http://bit.ly/2LOPA2o VIDEOS Jens Ludwig: "Machine Learning in the Criminal Justice System" | Talks at Google http://bit.ly/2LV9NUp PROGRAMMING Speech_Recognition_with_Tensorflow - implementation of a…

Apple Create ML vs Kaggle is it really so good?

Programming, Swift
During recent WWDC Apple presented their newest tool called Create ML. As a ML enthusiast i was really impressed on what i’ve seen on dedicated session (703), so i thought it would be worth to investigate how powerful it really is. 1. Create ML in a nutshell (you can skip if you watched WWDC presentation). Create ML is a new framework designed to help developers easily and quickly build machine learning models using Swift and Xcode. As for now it is able to work with 3 types of data: images, text and tabular data. The workflow is really simple, you just need to deliver set of training data, write few lines of code and magic happens, small CoreML model is ready to be used in your app. Apple promises to…
