Diving through the layers of Artificial Intelligence

by on August 4, 2017 11:53 am
When reading about artificial intelligence we see terms like neural networks, deep learning, machine learning, reinforcement learning and more thrown about. Some of these terms are often interrelated and can be substituted to discuss the same subject matter, whereas others are mutually exclusive. In this post, I aim to provide clarity on the various subgroups… Read more Diving through the layers of Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning Transforms Google Translate Overnight

What Are Neural Networks?

by on July 28, 2017 11:09 am
Intelligence can be described as “the ability to perceive information, retain it as knowledge, and apply it to adaptive behaviors within an environment or context” [1]. The ability to exercise intelligence has been a key differentiator between animals and computers. The prior has a complex brain that is able to simultaneously digest various bits of… Read more What Are Neural Networks?
