Ebay’s Deep Learning Employment Philosophy

Ebay’s Deep Learning Employment Philosophy

Ebay has its own unique set of technical challenges when using machine learning for image and text recognition across more than 800 million items on offer every day. On top of this, like many giant e-commerce platforms, it has also had to approach the matter of how to settle Data Scientists and Researchers into the business as comfortably as possible. ...

Geoffrey Hinton, Deep Learning in Baby Steps and the Future of Google and AI

Geoffrey Hinton, Deep Learning in Baby Steps and the Future of Google and AI

Geoffrey Hinton has a powerful and relatively rare skill to compliment his research. That is, to be able to articulate complex concepts into language that anyone can understand. He recently spoke to CBC Toronto’s Anna Maria Tremonti about deep learning, starting with a perfectly simple question from Tremonti to hold listeners hands through the fundamentals of deep learning and then ...

Baidu Suspended from ImageNet Dataset Submissions.

I am not entirely sure what to make of the news that Baidu admitted to turning the ImageNet Gentlemen’s Club into an all-you-can-eat engorgement of challenge submissions. If you hold these goings-on up to the light, from one angle they look more like school yard tomfoolery than razor sharp academic and commercial innovation yet at a different angle it looks slightly more ugly. ...

Twitter is a challenge for deep learning. It’s easy to forget too that whilst Baidu, Google and Facebook are elbow barging each other to get to the front of the line, that Twitter is also a perpetual stream of unstructured and growing content, served up in real-time which presents a weird and wonderful storm of challenges with millions of made ...

Baidu Deep Learning Crash Course

Baidu Deep Learning Crash Course

Deep Learning at Baidu is all the rage at the moment, that is, at least until they are out-algorithmed by another research laboratory, perhaps with more compute power. This is, of course, all part of what I was talking about last week when I wrote about the report in the Wall Street Journal on Baidu posting the world’s best results on the ...

Baidu ImageNet Result Part of a Much Larger Picture

Server Farm Room

Deep Learning has been in our palms for a while now, and we all get to see the results from the requests we send to the tech companies we rely on for kicks and flicks which means the exodus of AI experts from academia to the largest commercial research laboratories is well under way. The momentum which has been generated ...

7 Machine Learning Pioneers Timeline

AlanTuring

The sorcery of work in machine learning systems nowadays owes itself to a pedigree of pioneers in artificial intelligence, mathematics and computer science that laid the flagstones for others to walk. Whilst I am always interested in reading about how the giant research labs of Google, Netflix, Baidu and so on are pushing the envelope with what can be achieved, ...

Using Machine Learning to Tell You What You Are Thinking, Ted Willke, Intel Labs

Frame of Mind series. Composition of  human face wire-frame and wave elements to serve as a supporting backdrop for projects on mind, reason, thought, mental powers and mystic consciousness

Ted Willke’s work at Intel Labs has seen him use well known toolsets to bring order to the chaos of big data, guiding his teams through massive updates to graph based machine learning and data mining software to allow Data Scientists to extract the best possible value from data sets. This must have been as good a preparation as any ...
