Neural networks and deep learning

Posted by Sohrob Kazerounian on Jun 13, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Deep learning refers to a family of machine learning algorithms that can be used for supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning. 

These algorithms are becoming popular after many years in the wilderness. The name comes from the realization that the addition of increasing numbers of layers typically in a neural network enables a model to learn increasingly complex representations of the data.

How algorithms learn and adapt

Posted by Sohrob Kazerounian on May 24, 2018 12:59:06 PM

There are numerous techniques for creating algorithms that are capable of learning and adapting over time. Broadly speaking, we can organize these algorithms into one of three categories – supervised learning, classification and regression.

Supervised learning refers to situations in which each instance of input data is accompanied by a desired or target value for that input. When the target values are a set of finite discrete categories, the learning task is often known as a classification problem. When the targets are one or more continuous variables, the task is called regression.

AI vs. machine learning

“The original question ‘Can machines think?’ I believe to be too meaningless to deserve discussion. Nevertheless, I believe that at the end of the century, the use of words and general educated opinion will have altered so much that one will be able to speak of machines thinking without expecting to be contradicted.” – Alan Turing

The rise of machine intelligence

Can machines think?

The question itself is deceptively simple in so far as the human ability to introspect has made each of us intimately aware of what it means to think.

Alan Turing and the birth of machine intelligence

“We may compare a man in the process of computing a real number to a machine which is only capable of a finite number of conditions…” – Alan Turing

 

It is difficult to tell the history of AI without first describing the formalization of computation and what it means for something to compute. The primary impetus towards formalization came down to a question posed by the mathematician David Hilbert in 1928.
