Do you Word2Vec? Google's neural-network bookworm

Several years back, the Google "Brain Team" that was behind Tensorflow hatched another novel neural tool: Word2Vec. Word2Vec is a two-layer neural net for processing text. It swallows a given set of text that it then returns as a set of vectors – turning the words into a numerical form that computers can understand. Word2Vec …

Wanna get started with practical AI? Check out this chap's Rubik's Cube solving neural-net code

The Rubik’s Cube is one of those toys that just won't go away. Solving it is either something you can do in minutes to impress, or find so hard you end up using it as a paperweight. There are several algorithms for solving the classic cube, which has a whopping 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 – about 43 quintillion – possible …

Wanna spend a day getting deeply hands-on with machine learning?

Events If you want to get deep and hands-on with machine learning, you'll be chuffed to know that we’ve added two more cracking workshops to our lineup at MCubed. On October 11, Laurent Catto will be delivering a workshop on Machine Learning with R, aimed at participants who are not experts in machine learning but have some …

The hidden horse power driving Machine Learning models

Machine Learning is becoming the only real available method to perform many modern computational tasks in near real time. Machine Vision, speech recognition and natural language processing have all proved difficult to crack without ML techniques. When it comes to hardware, the tasks themselves do not need a great deal of …

TensorFlow: I want to like you, but you're tricksy

Hands-on Occasionally a technology comes along that changes the way that people work. Docker has had a profound effect on how applications are deployed in the cloud, Hadoop changed how analysis of big data was done and the R language has disrupted the statistics market. And so to TensorFlow, which emerged from the Machine Learning team …

DeepMind hopes its TensorFlow lib Sonnet is music to ears of AI devs

Alphabet’s AI outfit DeepMind has released Sonnet, a framework that allows developers to construct neural network components more easily in TensorFlow. TensorFlow is a popular machine learning library that was initially developed as proprietary software by Google Brain engineers. After DeepMind was acquired by Google in 2014, …

Google's video recognition AI is trivially trollable

Early in March, Google let loose a beta previewing an AI to classify videos – and it only took a month for University of Washington boffins to defeat it. The academics' approach is trivial: all the researchers (led by PhD student Hossein Hosseini) did was inserted a still photo “periodically and at a very low rate into videos …

Suffering ceepie-geepies! Do we need a new processor architecture?

Backgrounder Do we need a new processor architecture? Graphcore says that machine learning computation is different from existing computational types, and will be broad enough in its usage for – as well as accelerated significantly by – a dedicated processor architecture. If UK-based Graphcore is right, then its IPU will join CPU and GPU …

What does a complex AI model look like? Here's some Friday eye candy from UK biz Graphcore

Pics Brit chip startup Graphcore has produced sexy images of its graph processing. We wrote about Graphcore scoring $30m A-round funding in October. The processor designer came out of two years in XMOS-incubated stealth mode at that time, and was founded by CEO Nigel Toon and CTO Simon Knowles. XMOS is a fabless semiconductor …

Just finished your first TensorFlow app? Might be time for a rewrite...

Tensorflow, Google’s opensource machine learning library, has toddled into whole figures, just over a year after the first release - with the proviso that version 1.0 might not be entirely backwards-compatible with early adopters’ programmes. Using just the sort of understatement which characterises the machine learning space …

Google open sources machine learning software

Video Google is helping bring HAL to life by open sourcing its machine learning software. The software, called TensorFlow, is the successor to the DistBelief system that the online giant used for the past five years to make sense of the vast amounts of data it has access to. DistBelief has sifted email for spam, scanned YouTube …
