Have you ever got something by doing nothing?
Most of us believe that the harder we work the more we receive. What do we receive? More money, security, social status. What about happiness?
In my life, I spent a lot of time achieving more by doing even more. One university degree was not enough, I got several of them and later a Ph.D. Speaking one language was not enough, I learned many additional ones. Working full-time was not enough, I founded my own startup.
Doing more became a never-ending story. Several years ago I decided to take a new job…
AI as Augmentative Intelligence utilizing machine learning, algorithms, and rich data to augment the capabilities of humans and businesses could be soon an illusion.
The accelerating rate of technological change makes it likely that people will have both the technological resources and scientific knowledge to create Artificial General Intelligence.
“Success in creating effective AI could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don’t know. So, we cannot know if we will be infinitely helped by AI, or ignored by it and side-lined, or conceivably destroyed by it.” …
Have you ever spent two hours watching a really bad movie till the end, just to say to yourself what a waste of time?
Who relates to the strange feeling in the gut when, during a successful lucrative project, we were unable to allocate valuable time to care for ourselves?
Imagine having a loan account where transactions are recorded in minutes of your life. What if you unexpectedly discover that more than 24 hours have been debited from your account during a single day?
A few days ago I got a call from an old friend, who has been extremely…
It is a beautiful sunny Sunday morning. You are in a good mood because you have finally cleaned your house. You are just returning from bringing household rubbish to the waste container on the nearby street. You now stand in front of your house door, searching for keys. You can't find them in your pockets. They are not in the door lock either. Where are your keys?
This story happened to my neighbor. It inspired me to write about something we all carry with us more often than our phones.
We carry them every day. We can’t do without them…
Have you ever faced a large corpus of text missing capitalization of words? You required to uppercase thousand of words before publishing the text. In this post, I demonstrate how to repair case information in documents automatically.
Truecasing is a natural language processing problem of finding the proper capitalization of words within a text where such information is unavailable.
While it’s convenient to solve complex problems by composing supermassive neural networks in computer vision, understanding the impact of each weight on the outcome is difficult.
In fact, the relationship between the weights of a neural network and the function the network represents is extremely complicated, especially when the network has billions of weights.
For example, a Tesla electric vehicle runs at least 50 large convolutional neural networks simultaneously to classify vehicles, lane lines, road curbs, crosswalks, and all other specific environmental variables.
This article aims at illustrating the potential of machine learning for brands and entrepreneurs to understand how to initialize influencer marketing campaigns, manage relationships with influencers, and effectively reach their audience.
Not everyone is fortunate to know. We tend to follow the lead of some people as a shortcut to gaining knowledge that we don't have. Domesticating knowledge brings a sense of relief, superiority, and mastery to the so-called influencers.
Influencer marketing utilizes these special individuals in social media to promote brand awareness, advertise products to their social networks, and reach niche markets.
In this post, you will learn how autoencoders work and why they are used for denoising medical images.
The correct understanding of image messages can be crucial in areas like medicine. Denoising can be focused on cleaning old scanned images or contribute to feature selection efforts in cancer biology. The presence of noise may confuse the identification and analysis of diseases which may result in unnecessary deaths. Hence, denoising of medical images is a mandatory and essential pre-processing technique.
The so-called autoencoder technique has proven to be very useful for denoising images.
An autoencoder is made of a pair of…
Bagging is a meta-algorithm from the ensemble learning paradigm where multiple models (often termed “weak learners”) are trained to solve the same problem and combined to get better results.
With bagging, we build the same model on multiple bootstraps from the data and combine each model’s prediction to get an overall classification.
In this article, I will walk you through a practical example in physics and explain how bagging works for classifying Higgs bosons (controversially called the “God particle”).
I use a small subset of the HIGGS dataset in the UCI machine learning repository. …
Everyone is a leader at some point. This is what I learned by bringing simplicity into my life to ignite others.
During this process, the main change was the acceptance of my own ignorance. In this post, I tell a story of how I discovered myself and used it as an opportunity to repaint my leadership style.
What’s the color of your leadership style?
How many of you would choose dark to reflect a strong authoritative style?
How many of you would rather choose a pale color for a dominant altruistic style?
How many would say it is rather a…
