ONNX building an Open Source AI framework with the help of AWS.

AWS (Amazon Web Service), subsidiary of Amazon.com, has become the newest member of deep learning community’s alliance on the ONNX (Open Neutral Network Exchange), and recently came out with advanced artificial intelligence environment.

Facebook and Microsoft led the effort of the framework.

Part of the collaboration, AWS made it’s own open source Python Package, and other side ONNX-Mxnet already available as a deep learning framework that offers application programming interfaces across multiple language including Scala, Python and open source static software R.

The ONNX design will help the developers to build and train models for other frameworks, like PyTorch, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit or Caffe2, AWS Deep Learning Engineering Manager, Hagay Lupesko and Software Developer Roshani Nagmote wrote in an online post last week. It will let developers import those models into MXNet, and run them for inference.

 

For Developers

Microsoft and Facebook launched support for ONNX this summer, a shared model of interoperablity for the enhancement of the AI. Microsoft committed its Cognitive Toolkit, Caffe2 and PyTorch to support ONNX.

“Cognitive Toolkit and other frameworks make it easier for developers to construct and run computational graphs that represent neural networks,” Microsoft said.

Inceptive versions of ONNX code and documentation were made available on Github.

AWS and Microsoft Introducing Gluon a new library for machine learning, a new interface in Apache MXnet that helps developer to build and train deep learning modules.

According to Apache MXnet community earlier released a version 0.12 of MXnet, which extends Gluon functionality for it’s new research,

Framework Method

“This looks like a great way to deliver inference regardless of which framework generated a model,” said Paul Teich, principal analyst at Tirias Research.

“This is basically a framework-neutral way to deliver inference,” he said LinuxInsider.

AWS and Microsoft and others cloud providers are under pressure from customer to be able to train on one network while dispatching on another, in order to advance AI, Teich Said.

“Framework interoperability is a good thing, and this will only help developers in making sure that models that they build on MXNet or Caffe or CNTK are interoperable,” Tractica’s Kaul quote.

Open Source

These companies like ONNX, AWS, Facebook, Microsoft they’ll know that they owe a significant amount of their triumph to the software development and open source, quoted Jeff Kaplan.

“The Open Neural Network Exchange is committed to producing similar benefits and innovations in AI,” he told LinuxInsider.

Numerous major tech companies have announced their plans to use and speed up the development of AI collaboration, In order to create uniform framework for development and research.

Google AI learned how to make cookie recipe and baked it.

Smart Cookie:

Artificial Intelligence tremendously growing into the world and now world depends on it, Recently published articles state that in future years AI bot will run the elections and now this, Google AI created the cookie recipe and baked it.

On recent blog post, Google notes that a small research team from Pittsburgh working on artificial intelligence to experimental desigIn the end, the cookies turned out to taste good.n.

For testing the technology, team set out to design,

the best possible CHOCOLATE cookies using given a set of INGREDIENTS

By Using Bayesian Optimization, team load the ingredients which they found in a cookie recipe. Then AI created the recipe which google employee tested itslef, and provide a “numerical score relative to store bought some cookie samples.”

We fed that rating back into the system, which learned from the rating and adjusted those “knobs” to create a new recipe. We did this dozens of times—baking, rating, and feeding it back in for a new recipe—and pretty soon the AI got much better at creating tasty recipes.”

Later programmers introduce cookies to their in-house chef and local bakers:

Working out of the Goat Bakery kitchen, Chef John and Jeanette mixed and matched some unusual ingredients like cardamom and szechuan pepper, using the measurements provided by Google’s system.”

The algorithm was created to speed up the process, It takes a set of directions, like numerous recipes, various methods and performs with different changes, also called as Hyperparameters.

The algorithms then persistently performs the orientation until it creates the recipe, AI using every ingredients like baking powder with some butter or soda until the perfect was accomplish.

As it turns out the algorithm worked, over the period of two months, the duo and AI created the 59 batches that evaluate with ingredients like cardamom and szechuan pepper before arriving at “a new take on the classic chocolate chip cookie: The Chocolate Chip and Cardamom Cookie.”

The chocolate chip and cardamom cookie recipe is available below:

World’s first AI politician is likely to run for election in 2020, Meet SAM

The period of machine language and and AI are upon us, Now it’s time to gaze at SAM, the first AI politician in New Zealand.

Scientists have designed and developed the world’s first artificial intelligence politician, that can answer a person’s questions regarding local issues such as policies around housing, education and immigration. The virtual politician, called SAM, was created by Nick Gerritsen, a 49-year-old entrepreneur in New Zealand

“There is a lot of bias in the ‘analogue’ practice of politics right now” – Gerritsen, SAM’s Creator.

Gerritsen also stated – “There seems to be so much existing bias that countries around the world seem unable to address fundamental and multiple complex issues like climate change and equality,”

 

The AI politician is constantly learning to respond to people through Facebook Messenger as well as a survey on its Homepage

Gerritson hopes that SAM will be advanced enough to run as a candidate during the 2020 elections in New Zealand. However, it is not legally possible for SAM to contest based upon the current law.

“SAM is an enabler and we plan to operate within existing legal boundaries” -Gerritsen

AT&T and Tech Mahindra Collaborate with Linux Foundation to Spur AI Development

Acumos :

Linux Foundation announced the launch of an open-source AI project which is a collaborative of leading American telecommunication co. AT&T and Indian IT Co. Tech Mahindra.

This open-source project named ‘Acumos’ is a bid to develop the required tools for developer to work on AI projects with ease. Similar to a framework? yeah!

This is a platform with an intention to open up opportunities in the development of AI apps effortless.

With the Acumos Project AT&T and Tech Mahindra are leading the way in bringing the AI and machine learning tools to developer community” said Jim Zemlin, from Linux Foundation. “Making it easy for developers to get involved and to really steer the ecosystem around the project in the direction they want it to go is the key to making the Acumos platform successful.”

While the Linux Foundation support and present Acumos Project, and the contribution of AT&T and Tech Mahindra with the programming codes. Acumos, the extended framework for machine learning programs with ability to edit, compose, integrate, train and deploy the AI microservices.

acumos“Artificial intelligence is a critical tool for growing our business. However, the current state of today’s AI environment is fractured, which creates a significant barrier to adoption,” said Mazin Gilbert, Vice President of Advanced Technology at AT&T Labs. “Acumos will expedite innovation and deployment of AI applications, and make them available to everyone.”

Acumos will make artificial intelligence more user flexible, more control and more choices with smart automation and predictive analytics that willAcumos create drone, connect cars and robots.

“Artificial Intelligence could create jobs, not just eliminate them” – Satya Nadella, Microsoft

Artificial Intelligence software will create lots of job that require human efforts.

In day today life, everyone is relying on technology and it’s getting smarter day by day, that Tesla’s CEO Elan Musk is really scared that Artificial Intelligence will replace the human being, and unlike other tech leaders like Microsoft,facebook everyone disagree.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella? He thinks AI could actually add more jobs for humans — at least among certain demographics.

“We should have a very clear view of what automation does to displacement and we should get to it, but one of the things I also hope is we can take advantage of AI to get more people into the workforce,” Nadella said Tuesday at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit in Los Angeles.

He talked about how AI could help to people who have disabilities, like disorder. He clearly mentioned a camera app from Microsoft, called Seeing, which narrates the world around you. Designed for the low vision community, this research project harnesses the power of AI to describe people, text and objects

“This is enabling someone who works at Microsoft today to more fully participate,” he quoted. “There are several things we can do to emancipate people.”

Microsoft is focusing on AI is one of the three future thinking technology and rest is Augmented Reality which allows us bring virtual objects to reality and facebook is also into this.

Microsoft researcher in Artificial Intelligence are channeling the explosion of digital data and computational power with advance algorithm to enable combined natural interaction between people and machines that increase the human ability to sense,learn and understand

NLP may evoke empathy in machines as well as humans

Technology and innovation are moving at blinding speeds. It may seem like technology is on an ambitious mission to solve all of humanity’s most pressing problems. NLP or Natural Language Processing is an integral piece of the AI puzzle.

That’s because technical problems like jet propulsion or GPS are largely math- and physics-related, which is where computers (and programmers) excel. But solving human problems like employee engagement usually requires empathy. And that’s notoriously hard to codify.

Humans are emotional creatures. Especially when it comes to making decisions. First we feel, then we apply logic. It helps us to justify our emotional response, and, finally, we act. Thus, any attempt to help people make better decisions that doesn’t account for emotional factors is almost always destined to fail.

However, there have been recent advances in artificial intelligence, and especially natural language processing (NLP). We finally have the technological tools for tapping into the power and complexity of human feelings. This approach has major implications for how we design systems, and it’s leading to solutions with more humanistic points of view.

 

Reading between the lines of NLP

For the first time, we’re able to teach computers to understand not only the basics of what people are saying. — by doing things like counting words or looking for specific phrases — but to intelligently “read between the lines”. And get to the true intent and meaning behind our words. This, of course, is an important skill people have acquired over time as a function of empathy.

 

The common “satisfaction survey” is a classic example of technology’s limitations in solving even the most basic questions of how someone feels. In principle, it’s a powerful way to gain an understanding of how people feel about a product or service. In practice, it’s clunky, inaccurate, and long overdue for a remake.

Looking in the mirror

In addition to helping us better understand one another, NLP can also give us a better understanding of ourselves. Language is the most detailed window into our thoughts. Same with our feelings. When technology can begin to understand us as we are (not as how it wants us to be), it can become a true partner. So as to help us discover how best to grow and improve.

nlp2
Understanding human emotion is notoriously difficult to code in machines.

Take the dreaded performance review and the various biases that plague it. When you ask people in a work environment whether they might be biased, even subconsciously, they will vigorously deny it. However, studies of performance reviews show widespread, unconscious bias.

To solve the world’s most challenging “people problems,” whether through developing better products or enabling better understanding and more fairness in the workplace, we need technology to demonstrate empathy. When we leverage advances that combine both heart and mind, we can further develop and deliver the people-centric solutions we all deserve.

Hackers Working For North Korea Operating From India : Claims NYT

North Korea, Everyone knows the country suffering from dictatorship, from the past years the country’s being joke for owned very few machines and having less expertise , however it changed early in 1990’s Jong-il seen potential of computers and began training to his people.

Now North Korea is often seen to be one of the most isolated country in the current world. The country is hyper-connected and it managed to launch an attack on private sector as well as government. Now the most curious part is Indian hackers are involved in this, Hackers are are launching attack from India on behalf of North Korea, reported the New York Times on Sunday.

India’s Involvement

The New York Times reports states a cyber security firm called Recorded future to estimate that around fifth of North Korea’s attack originated from India. The firm says:

” It is clear that North Korea has a broad physical and virtual presence in India.

Characterised by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs as a relationship of ‘friendship, cooperation, and understanding’, the data we analysed supports the reports of increasingly close diplomatic and trade relationship between India and North Korea.

Patterns of activity suggest that North Korea may have students in at least seven universities around the country and may be working with several research institutes and government departments.”

the report however it suggest that India might also be a victim with record future detecting an activity might be it targeting the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization), However, the report concluded that it “could not confirm malicious behavior” in this regards.

Meanwhile India does maintain a good diplomatic ties with North Korea, and as it’s growing closer to the United States, and government has demoted ties with Kim Jong-Un’s regime. Indian government recently encourage United Nation to ban all trade with North Korea.
