Weekly ML drop #9

I’ve become more and more interested in machine learning during last year. This is my way of collecting and sharing interesting reads on the topic I stumble upon. Those posts are published each Friday, they are divided into few categories and the format is constantly evolving.

News
In this part, I share interesting news from machine learning and artificial intelligence world. Those are mostly not very scientific articles about interesting applications,  predictions and controversies that AI causes.

We need tools to track AI impact on jobs market
An expert panel composed mainly of economists and computer scientists said in a new report, that The World needs a way to measure how technology impacts job market. As when we started measured our economies in the 1930s, which greatly improved government’s awareness of issues to address.

Series of articles on how AI is used in biggest tech companies
Backchannel throughout last year visited major tech companies to interview them, how they use Machina Learning and AI. Apple, Google and Facebook.

Machine learning will be a great help in detecting cancer
The article from Google’s research blog shows how assistance of machine learning algorithms will greatly improve detecting cancer.

Will democracy survive Big Data and Artificial Intelligence?
This is a longer read from Scientific American that analyses various impacts of Big Data and growth of Machine Learning will have on future societies. It also tries to answer the question what we should do now, to secure our future.


Learning materials

Here I’m sharing material for learning ML that I found useful – online courses, blogs, books etc. This is usually rather technical stuff.

Intel’s Deep Learning 102
Continuation of the webinar I linked last week. In this part, they’re taking an overview of more advanced topics, like convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks.


This is it for today, thanks for reading. If you liked the post, let me know and please check other parts of the series.
