What is data annotation? And how is data annotation applied in ML? In this article, we are delving deep to answer these key questions. Data annotation is valuable to ML and has contributed immensely to some of the cutting-edge technologies we enjoy today. Data annotators, or the invisible workers in the ML workforce, are needed more now than ever before.
So you’ve decided to attend ML Conference but you don’t know how to break it to your boss that it is a win-win situation? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Follow 4 simple steps and use these 5 arguments to show why your organization needs to invest in ML Conference!
We humans are usually good at spotting anomalies: often a quick glance at monitoring charts is enough to spot (or, in the best case, predict) a performance problem. A curve rises unnaturally fast, a value falls below a desired minimum or there are fluctuations that cannot be explained rationally. Some of this would be technically detectable by a simple automated if, but it's more fun with Azure Cognitive Services' new Metrics Advisor.
Training a machine learning model is getting easier. But building and training the model is also the easy part. The real challenge is getting a machine learning system into production and running it reliably. In the field of software development, we have gained a significant insight in this regard: DevOps is no longer just nice to have, but absolutely necessary. So why not use DevOps tools and processes for machine learning projects as well?
Python has established itself as a quasi-standard in the field of machine learning over the last few years, in part due to the broad availability of libraries. It is logical that Oracle did not really like to watch this trend — after all, Java has to be widely used if it wants to earn serious money with its product. Some time ago, Oracle placed its own library Tribuo under an open source license.
In recent years we have seen a lot of breakthroughs in AI. We now have deep learning algorithms beating the best of the best in games like chess and go. In computer vision these algorithms now recognise faces with the same accuracy as humans. Except they don’t, they can do it for millions of faces while humans struggle to recognize more than a few hundred people.
Anomalies - or outliers - are ubiquitous in data. Be it due to measurement errors of sensors, unexpected events in the environment or faulty behaviour of a machine. In many cases, it makes sense to detect such anomalies in real time in order to be able to react immediately. The data streaming platform Apache Kafka and the Python library scikit-learn provide us with the necessary tools for this.
Since February, we have been inundated in the media with diagrams and graphics on the spread of the coronavirus. The data comes from freely accessible sources and can be used by everyone. But how do you turn the source data into a data set that can be used to create something visual like a dashboard? With Python and modules like pandas, this is no magic trick.
With the emergence of deep neural networks, the question has arisen how machine learning models can be not only accurate but also explainable. In this article, you will learn more about explainability and what elements it consists of, and why we need expert knowledge to interpret machine learning results to avoid making the right decisions for the wrong reasons.
