Statistics Using Excel Succinctly

Learn the ins and outs of Microsoft Excel’s statistical capabilities. Author Charles Zaiontz will help you familiarize yourself with an often overlooked but very powerful set of tools. With Statistics Using Excel Succinctly, you will be able to maximize your Excel skills.

Defining Artificial Intelligence |🇪🇸 Definiendo Inteligencia Artificial

The starting point to develop the operational definition is the definition of AI adopted by the High Level Expert Group on artificial intelligence. To derive this operational definition we have followed a mixed methodology. On one hand, we apply natural language processing methods to a large set of AI literature. On the other hand, we carry out a qualitative analysis on 55 key documents including artificial intelligence definitions from three complementary perspectives: policy, research and industry.

From Zero to Research Scientist full resources guide

This guide is designated to anybody with basic programming knowledge or a computer science background interested in becoming a Research Scientist with on Deep Learning and NLP.

Probabilistic Machine Learning: An Introduction

Probabilistic Machine Learning: An Introduction

“In this book, we will cover the most common types of ML, but from a probabilistic perspective. Roughly speaking, this means that we treat all unknown quantities (e.g., predictions about the future value of some quantity of interest, such as tomorrow’s temperature, or the parameters of some model) as random variables, that are endowed with probability distributions which describe a weighted set of possible values the variable may have.[…].”.

R0: dde004c79ac901067ab1189ea01b8ac7-Data Science: A First Introduction

Data Science: A First Introduction

The book is structured so that learners spend the first four chapters learning how to use the R programming language and Jupyter notebooks to load, wrangle/clean, and visualize data, while answering descriptive and exploratory data analysis questions. The remaining chapters illustrate how to solve four common problems in data science, which are useful for answering predictive and inferential data analysis questions[…]

Addressing Ethical Dilemmas in AI: Listening to Engineers

Documentation is key – design decisions in AI development must be documented in detail, potentially taking inspiration from the field of risk management. There is a need to develop a framework for large-scale testing of AI effects, beginning with public tests of AI systems, and moving towards real-time validation and monitoring. Governance frameworks for decisions in AI development need to be clarified, including the questions of post-market surveillance of product or system performance. Certification of AI ethics expertise would be helpful to support professionalism in AI development teams. Distributed responsibility should be a goal, resulting in a clear definition of roles and responsibilities as well as clear incentive structures for taking in to account broader ethical concerns in the development of AI systems.

Tidy Modeling with R

This book provides an introduction to how to use our software to create models. We focus on a dialect of R called the tidyverse that is designed to be a better interface for common tasks using R. If you’ve never heard of or used the tidyverse, Chapter 2 provides an introduction. In this book, we demonstrate how the tidyverse can be used to produce high quality models. The tools used to do this are referred to as the tidymodels packages

The future of AI

If you wonder what is next in the evolution towards general AI then this session is for you. We have seen some painful failures of artificial intelligence pointing to a lack of ‘common sense’. Are neural networks really the solution we seek or is a new path needed? Find out what IBM Research is cooking in terms of hardware and software in the never ending quest towards General AI.

Machine Learning from scratch (by Danny Friedman)

This book covers the building blocks of the most common methods in machine learning. This set of methods is like a toolbox for machine learning engineers. Those entering the field of machine learning should feel comfortable with this toolbox so they have the right tool for a variety of tasks.

A Farewell to the Bias-Variance Tradeoff? An Overview of the Theory of Overparameterized Machine Learning

This paper provides a succinct overview of this emerging theory of overparameterized ML (henceforth abbreviated as TOPML) that explains these recent findings through a statistical signal processing perspective. We emphasize the unique aspects that define the TOPML research area as a subfield of modern ML theory and outline interesting open questions that remain.

R0:97532435b0393f0a6ae72973cc68382e-How to avoid machine learning pitfalls: a guide for academic researchers

How to avoid machine learning pitfalls: a guide for academic researchers

This document gives a concise outline of some of the common mistakes that occur when using machine learning techniques, and what can be done to avoid them. It is intended primarily as a guide for research students, and focuses on issues that are of particular concern within academic research, such as the need to do rigorous comparisons and reach valid conclusions. It covers five stages of the machine learning process: what to do before model building, how to reliably build models, how to robustly evaluate models, how to compare models fairly, and how to report results

YOLOX: Exceeding YOLO Series in 2021

We switch the YOLO detector to an anchor-free manner and conduct other advanced detection techniques, i.e., a decoupled head and the leading label assignment strategy SimOTA to achieve state-of-the-art results across a large scale range of models: For YOLO-Nano with only 0.91M parameters and 1.08G FLOPs, we get 25.3% AP on COCO, surpassing NanoDet by 1.8% AP; for YOLOv3, one of the most widely used detectors in industry, we boost it to 47.3% AP on COCO, outperforming the current best practice by 3.0% AP; for YOLOX-L with roughly the same amount of parameters as YOLOv4-CSP, YOLOv5-L, we achieve 50.0% AP on COCO at a speed of 68.9 FPS on Tesla V100, exceeding YOLOv5-L by 1.8% AP.
