The Deep Learning Framework Backed By Facebook Is Getting Industry’s Attention
When it comes to deep learning frameworks, TensorFlow is one of the most preferred toolkits. However, one framework that is fast becoming the favorite of developers and data scientists is PyTorch.
PyTorch is an open source project from Facebook which is used extensively within the company. For a long time, Facebook developers used another homegrown framework called Caffe2, which was adopted by academia and researchers. Last year, Facebook announced that it is merging the efforts of developing Caffe2 and PyTorch to focus on creating a unified framework that is accessible to the community.
Honesty is key to machine learning’s future – Roberts
Stephen Roberts likens the habit among some investors of seeing order in data where none exists to ancient astrologers spotting lions, bears and deities among the stars.
As director of the Oxford-Man Institute of Quantitative Finance, Roberts’ research focuses on machine learning algorithms that discern patterns in markets.
The trouble is that algorithms, he says, are even more capable than humans of finding “weird and wonderful things” in the numbers.
The AI And Machine Learning Nirvana: Reachable With The Right Approach
There’s a perception out there that two evolving technologies, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), will provide businesses with greater efficiency, increased productivity and a beefier bottom line — almost overnight. And with that message, companies are ready to jump in.
According to a 2018 Gartner press release, global business value from AI was expected to reach $1.2 trillion in 2018, a 70% jump from 2017. By 2022, Gartner expected it to reach $3.9 trillion. The research firm predicted that AI will be “the most disruptive class of technologies” in the next decade.
