ML Experimentation - Fail Fast, Learn Faster
In This Episode

Experimentation is the foundation of machine learning and artificial intelligence model development. As William Blake said, ‘The true method of knowledge is experiment.’ 

An experiment is a way to answer the question, what happens when? Like what happens when I try this combination of chess moves? While the principles are the same, experimenting in the digital world of ML is very different than in the physical world. As..

AI & ML in the 2010s
In This Episode
The 2010s was the decade that “machine intelligence” made the leap from sci-fi to reality. When hard-coded rules were replaced by data-driven experience. When human cognition was translated into computer language and machines began to think and learn as humans do. 
 
It has been a decade of great technological advancement and there is so much yet to be accomplished. For example, automation poses exciting growth and..

CV & ML - Visual Understanding Beyond Object Recognition
In This Episode

The main objective of computer vision is to give machines the ability to see and interpret the world. This has proven a much more complex task than initially expected. We take for granted our innate ability to interpret and classify the world around us. We are attempting to do in decades what took evolution millions of years. 

In this episode Saurabh, Nikhil, and Melody discuss the emergence of computer vision as a..

Bias in Machine Learning
In This Episode
Did you know that not all bias in machine learning (ML) is bad? In fact, the concept of bias was first introduced into ML by Tom Mitchell in his 1980 paper, "The need for biases in learning generalizations.” He defines learning as the ability to generalize from past experience in order to deal with new situations that are related to this experience, but not identical to it. Applying what we’ve learned from past..

Supervised Vs Unsupervised Learning
In This Episode

When discussing machine learning development approaches, data scientists often need to ask themselves does this use case apply best for supervised or unsupervised learning? In this episode, we break down the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and discuss various use cases to which each one best applies. Melody explores the notion that supervised learning works much like our education system: there's a teacher..

Is Data The New Oil?
In This Episode

Have you heard that “Data is the new oil”? It sounds cool, but what does it mean? Melody, Nikhil, and Saurabh tease out the ideas behind the metaphor and then discuss why Bernard Marr, a reporter for Forbes, wrote “Data is not the new oil." They end up offering a different, and perhaps more fitting metaphor to describe what’s fueling the 4th industrial revolution: “AI is the new electricity.”

AI vs. Machine Learning
In This Episode

Welcome to our first episode of No Bias, where we discuss different perspectives on the emerging and ever-shifting terrain of artificial intelligence and machine learning. In future episodes we’ll dive deeper into the nuts and bolts of developing and training models, philosophical issues, and existential concerns. But since this is our first episode we decided to begin with the basics: AI versus ML. We offer definitions..
