Artificial Intelligence / AI Reading for 08/10/2017

  • “Anyone who has been paying attention knows that deep learning has really taken off in the last several years. It’s powering hundreds of applications, in consumer as well as business realms, and continues to grow. One of the biggest problems holding back the further proliferation of deep learning, however, is the issue of scalability. Most AI servers today are just one single system, not multiple systems combined. The most popular open-source deep learning software frameworks simply don’t perform well across multiple servers, creating a time-consuming bottleneck. In other words, while many data scientists have access to servers with four to eight GPUs, they can’t take advantage of it and scale beyond the single node—at the end of the day, the software just wasn’t designed for it.”

  • “When Andrew Ng announced Deeplearning.ai back in June, it was hard to know exactly what the AI frontiersman was up to. In his time since departing as Baidu’s chief scientist, Ng has been developing a sequel of sorts to his popular introductory machine learning Coursera class. This go around, he is focusing specifically on deep learning.”

  • “The best pad Thai recipe should feature clean, fresh, not-too-sweet flavors; perfectly cooked noodles; and plenty of plump, juicy shrimp with tender bits of scrambled egg. To get the noodles right, we soaked rice sticks in hot tap water for 20 minutes before stir-frying for tender but not sticky noodles. To create the salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavor profile of pad Thai, we combined fish sauce, sugar, ground chiles, and vinegar. We added tamarind paste for the fresh, bright, fruity taste that is essential to the dish.”

  • “In the five days that Food52’s design team has been traveling through Europe, we’ve by no means held back on our consumption of cheese. A slab of barnyard-y Brie for breakfast, Comté by the curlicue to prepare one’s belly for more dessert. Snack cheese. Free cheese. Ashy cheese. Cheese.”

  • “Have a grill? Put an egg on it. Really. An outdoor alternative to hard-boiled eggs, grilled eggs are a great side dish to serve at a cookout, and they’re a perfect topper for a fresh summer salad. They’re also ridiculously easy to make: you just put a raw egg, in the shell, on the grill for about 10 minutes. Then it’s done.”

Artificial Intelligence / AI Reading for 07/26/2017

  • “Let’s contrast this with today’s AI.  The focus is on perception: can we have systems that recognize what is in a picture, what is in a video, what is said in a sound track?  Rapid progress is underway for these tasks thanks to the use of deep learning.  Is it AI still?”
