AI within O'Reilly Media
January 3, 2020
Paco Nathan explains how O'Reilly employs AI, from the obvious (chatbots, case studies about other firms) to the less so (using AI to show the structure of content in detail, enhance search and recommendations, and guide editors for gap analysis, assessment, pathing, etc.). Approaches include vector embedding search, summarization, TDA for content gap analysis, and speech-to-text to index video.
Bootstrap custom image classification using transfer learning
January 2, 2020
Transfer learning enables you to use pretrained deep neural networks (e.g., AlexNet, ResNet, and Inception V3) and adapt them for custom image classification tasks. Danielle Dean and Wee Hyong Tok walk you through the basics of transfer learning and demonstrate how you can use the technique to bootstrap the building of custom image classifiers.
Energy monitoring with a self-taught deep network
January 1, 2020
Energy usage is a significant part of daily life, so the ability to monitor this use offers a number of benefits, from cost savings to improved safety. A key challenge is the lack of labeled data. Yiqun Hu shares a new solution: a RNN-based network trained to learn good features from unlabeled data.
Getting started with TensorFlow
December 31, 2019
Yufeng Guo walks you through training and deploying a machine learning system using TensorFlow, a popular open source library. Yufeng takes you from a conceptual overview all the way to building complex classifiers and explains how you can apply deep learning to complex problems in science and industry.
