Exploring BERT Language Framework for NLP Tasks

As artificial intelligence apes the human speech, vision, and mind patterns, the domain of NLP is buzzing with some key developments in place.

NLP is one of the most crucial components for structuring a language-focused AI program, for example, the chatbots which readily assist visitors on the websites and AI-based voice assistants or VAs. NLP as the subset of AI enables machines to understand the language text and interpret the intent behind it by various means. A hoard of other tasks is being added via NLP like sentiment analysis, text classification, text extraction, text summarization, speech recognition, and auto-correction, etc.

However, NLP is being explored for many more tasks.


Benefits of Writing as a Hobby

Writing can be a tall order for anyone. Most people end up writing because they have no other option. However, if you treat it as a hobby, it takes away all the pressure. If your take writing is one of your hobbies, you will reap many benefits from it. Some of the benefits include:

Be disciplined and set realistic goals.

There is a great advantage in writing as a hobby rather than as a job even if you deal with an assignment writing online at this time. It is as essential as any other sport like playing and instruments or sport.


How Artificial Intelligence is Revolutionizing Mental Healthcare



Science fiction author William Gibson has been attributed as saying, 

“The future is already here, the fact is it’s not just very evenly distributed.”. 

Revolutionary artificial intelligence algorithms are creeping into mental healthcare and are reshaping its dimensions. You might already be discussing with an AI bot right now that “how does it make you feel to hear that?” Your AI therapist might be successful enough to take you out from the feeling of worry about what direction the future will take with the advent of artificial intelligence. In case, looking beyond the horrifying headlines of Skynet coming true, the progressive utilization of artificial intelligence in mental healthcare is absolutely splendid news for many of us. 


Of Superheroes, Hypergraphs and the Intricacy of Roles

In my previous post in which I discussed names, I also led in with the fact that I am a writer. Significantly, I did not really talk much about that particular assertion, because is in fact comes with its own rabbit hole quite apart from that associated with names and naming. Specifically, this assertion is all about roles.

Ontologists, especially neophyte data modelers, often get caught up in the definition of classes, wanting to treat everything as a class. However, there are two types of things that don’t actually fit cleanly into traditional distinctions of class: roles and categorizations.


How to Use Data Science for Search Engine Optimization

Data science is one of the hottest topics in the market nowadays. It is one of those industries that has revolutionized the world. It associates two chief technologies, big data and artificial intelligence, and utilizes them to examine and process datasets. It also uses machine learning, which helps to strengthen artificial intelligence. Data science has thoroughly improved and modernized every industry it has touched, including marketing, finance, social media, SEO, etc. If you wish to excel in your profession, there is a high chance you will have to use data science with python. Data science assists SEO experts in countless ways, like personalizing the customer experience, understanding client requirements, and many other things.


Student Loans: a Subprime Time-bomb for the US Government?

Contributed by Spencer James Stebbins. He takes the NYC Data Science Academy 12 week full time Data Science Bootcamp program from July 5th to September 22nd, 2016. This post is based on their first class project – the Exploratory Data Analysis Visualization Project, due on the 2nd week of the program. You can find the original article here.

There is overwhelming concern among politicians, professionals, and students that the current student loan market may be the next soaring hot air ballon primed to run out of gas and collapse. For students facing rising tuition costs, increased competition among peers, and a still uncertain job market, they are concerned about whether they will have the ability to pay off the increasing amount of debt they have taken on in order to pursue an education believed necessary to stay competitive.… Read more...

Retrotechtacular: Mechanical TV From The People Who Made It Happen

If we have a television in 2021 the chances are that it will be a large LCD model, flat and widescreen, able to display HD images in stunning clarity. Before that we’d have had a CRT colour TV, them maybe our parents grew up with a monochrome model. Before those though came the first TVs of all, which were mechanical devices that relied on a spinning disk to both acquire and display the image. The BBC Archive recently shared a vintage clip from 1970 in which two of the assistants of [John Logie Baird], the inventor of the first demonstrable television system, demonstrated its various parts and revealed its inner workings.

How To Leverage AI And ML

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have simplified the process of assimilating, processing, and analyzing huge amounts of data

Copyright by ummid.com

Artificial Intelligence () and Machine Learning () give businesses a competitive edge and also give them the one thing humans cannot – scalability. But today, they are helping COVID-19 researchers and organizations to navigate through the pandemic’s impact.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have simplified the process of assimilating, processing, and analyzing huge amounts of data. This data is then used to generate meaningful insights that help you make well-informed decisions. and , if used the right way, have the potential to radicalize the decision-making process and change the business game.


Change is law

Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death.

But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

The NOAA Climate Extremes Index

According to NOAA, the area of the US experiencing extreme maximum summer temperatures has greatly increased over the past fifty years.

“The sum of (a) percentage of the United States with maximum temperatures much below normal and (b) percentage of the United States with maximum temperatures much above normal.”

U.S. Climate Extremes Index (CEI) | Extremes | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

According to NOAA, the past decade has been  the hottest on record.

Their own data shows the exact opposite.

The National Climate Assessment also shows the exact opposite.

Towards a Responsible and Ethical AI

By Vidhi Chugh, Data Scientist

Responsible AI, Ethical AI, AI for social good — I am sure you must have heard these terms at some point or the other, whether you are a Data Scientist or not.

When I first heard these terms, the warning from Prof Stephen Hawking rang in my ears:

“The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”

And there my journey of understanding this critical aspect of the AI foundation started. I used to wonder how to relate ethics with AI which is just a series of algorithms, when, in fact, we have not been able to apply ethical behavior among ourselves.


Why A.I. is Every Marketer’s Secret Sauce

Every company has a secret sauce — it’s the differentiator in what separates one company from the rest of the pack and keeps it successful long-term. For Juniper Networks, CMO Mike Marcellin says that secret sauce centers around how the company is getting its customers to actively engage with its product.

“How someone engages with a brand, with a company, is hugely important,” Marcellin said. “84% of [consumers] said that the experience that a company provides is as important as its products and services.”


10 Machine Learning Model Training Mistakes

ML model training is the most time-consuming and resource-expensive part of the overall model-building journey. Training by definition is iterative, but somewhere during the iterations, mistakes seep into the mix. In this article, I share the ten deadly sins during ML model training — these are the most common as well as the easiest to overlook.

Ten Deadly Sins of ML Model Training

1. Blindly increasing the number of epochs when the model is not converging

During model training, there are scenarios when the loss-epoch graph keeps bouncing around and does not seem to converge irrespective of the number of epochs.


Literary prostitutes

The pack: that’s what they called it. A secret guide, discreetly passed to literary authors in need of money to sustain their ‘real’ art. Compiled by such an author, happy to share their experience of publishing erotica on Amazon, it offered advice to avant-garde writers keen to turn their hand to this lucrative genre. According to the pack, popular topics included:

ABDL /diaper stuff – if you’ve got the stomach for it, I would recommend writing things in this genre for immediate gratifying sales.

Gender swap/mind swap/transformation/etc – these are kind of like a teenage boy’s fantasy. Usually a man waking up in a woman’s body.


Here’s How to Sniff Out an LCD Protocol, But How Do You Look Up the Controller?

Nothing feels better than getting a salvaged component to do your bidding. But in the land of electronic displays, the process can quickly become a quagmire. For more complex displays, the secret incantation necessary just to get the things to turn on can be a non-starter. Today’s exercise targets a much simpler character display and has the added benefit of being able to sniff the data from a functioning radio unit.
When [Amen] upgraded his DAB radio he eyed the 16×2 character display for salvage. With three traces between the display and the controller it didn’t take long to trace out the two data lines using an oscilloscope.… Read more...

Cloud-Based Atari Gaming

While the Google Stadia may be the latest and greatest in the realm of cloud gaming, there are plenty of other ways to experience this new style of gameplay, especially if you’re willing to go a little retro. This project, for example, takes the Atari 2600 into the cloud for a nearly-complete gaming experience that is fully hosted in a server, including the video rendering.
[Michael Kohn] created this project mostly as a way to get more familiar with Kubernetes, a piece of open-source software which helps automate and deploy container-based applications. The setup runs on two Raspberry Pi 4s which can be accessed by pointing a browser at the correct IP address on his network, or by connecting to them via VNC.… Read more...

Making space

When we walk on the earth with reverence,

beauty will decide to trust us

3D Printed Material Might Replace Kevlar

Prior to 1970, bulletproof vests were pretty iffy, with a history extending as far as the 1500s when there were attempts to make metal armor that was bulletproof. By the 20th century there was ballistic nylon, but it took kevlar to produce garments with real protection against projectile impact. Now a 3D printed nanomaterial might replace kevlar.
A group of scientists have published a paper that interconnected tetrakaidecahedrons made up of carbon struts that are arranged via two-photon lithography.
We know that tetrakaidecahedrons sound like a modern invention, but, in fact, they were proposed by Lord Kelvin in the 19th century as a shape that would allow things to be packed together with minimum surface area.… Read more...

2. Relationships, Geometry, and Artificial Intelligence

In their very provocative paperPeter Battaglia and his colleagues, posit that in order for artificial intelligence (AI) to achieve the capabilities of human intelligence, it must be able to compute with highly structured data types, such as the ones humans deal with. This means that AI must be able to work with information about relationships between objects, which are effectively encoded as graphs, i.e. collections of nodes and edges between these nodes, and also attributes attached to the nodes and edges.
A simple example would be images, where one considers graphs which are shaped like a square grid, with the pixel values being the attribute attached to a particular node in the grid.… Read more...
