Neural Nets, Algorithms, Deep Learning, and What Lies Ahead in Search

A look into neural nets and foreseeable consequences.

As Google's head of artificial intelligence takes charge of search, deep learning is already changing the way Googling works.

Welcome to the future!: MIT CSAIL Team develops artificial intelligence system that outsmarts humans

"Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) research team has reported success in development of unique system based on artificial intelligence, which has the capability to outperform even the smartest people on the planet. The system was tested against many teams comprising of experts and outsmarted them on many occasions.

In a research paper, CSAIL Researcher Kalyan Veeramachaneni said, "Transforming raw data into features is often the part of the process that most heavily involves humans, because it is driven by intuition. While recent developments in deep learning and automated processing of images, text, and signals have enabled significant automation in feature engineering for those data types, feature engineering for relational and human behavioral data remains iterative, human-intuition driven, and challenging, and hence, time consuming."

A free Report/E-Book by O'Reilly: "Evaluating Machine Learning Models
-- A Beginner's Guide to Key Concepts and Pitfalls"
By Alice Zheng

A free Report/E-Book by O'Reilly that was published this month. Haven't read it yet, but it looks interesting at first glance.

Computer-generated art that makes algorithms look like oriental rugs. "Polygons on a grid bloom into intricate patterns that resemble hand-woven rugs and Moorish tile patterns in the generative works of John Green, aka Fleen. Black and white patterns repeat into seeming infinity through an algorithmic system developed with computer software. The pieces show the abundance of possibility, with shapes as simple as triangles and squares becoming ornate colonies of design."
The black and white mosaics of John Green, a.k.a., Fleen, are mesmerizing.

Now in Oman! This is the Grand Mosque, the 2nd largest mosque in the world and it's absolutely incredible. Somehow, I talked security into letting me take a photo alone inside just before the next call to prayer. You can see another security guy in there taking a quick photo... turns out it was for Instagram and now we're Instagram friends! :)  

See more behind-the-scenes videos from our family trip at http://www.stuckincustoms.com/category/travel/30-days-2016/ 

After this, we're off to Qatar! :)   

BTW, this is a super-hi-rez file from the Hasselblad.  It's worth zooming in here on Google+ Photos!
