8 stories that affected the development of artificial intelligence  
 
Today, not a single announcement about the release of a new smartphone or application is complete without a mention of artificial intelligence. AI in the trend, and you might think that he is with us quite recently, but it is not. Rather, it is not so: yes, AI instruments have been widely used today, but the development itself began more than half a century ago. And in the history of AI there were many interesting episodes not known to the general public, which we decided to tell the readers of Khabra.

We determine the ripeness of watermelon with the help of Keras: a complete cycle, from the idea to the program on Google Play

We determine the ripeness of watermelon with the help of Keras: a complete cycle, from the idea to the program on Google Play

With what all began


 
It all started with Apple Market - I found that they have a program that allows you to determine the ripeness of watermelon. The program is strange. What is worth, if only, a suggestion to knock on the watermelon not with knuckles, but with a telephone! Nevertheless, I wanted to repeat this achievement on the more familiar Android platform.
 
page of the program on Google Play, of course, the program is free.
 
 
What she does:
 
 
1. Press the button with the microphone and start recording. You have five seconds to knock three times on a watermelon - tuk-tuk-tuk...[/h]

Computer vision and philosophy

Computer vision and philosophyScience and philosophy in principle describe the process of visual perception of a person in different ways.
 
Science: Information processes in living and non-living systems proceed in a uniform manner.
 
The founder of cybernetics Norbert Wiener believed that the processes of information processing in living and nonliving systems proceed in a uniform manner. Therefore, he called the book on cybernetics created by him a new science - cybernetics, or control and communication in an animal and a machine (1948)
 

Similarly, the creators of the first artificial neural network, J. McCulloch ...

The language barrier and NLP. Why do not chat bots understand us?

People have long wanted to teach a car to understand a person. However, only now we are a little closer to the scenes of fantastic films: we can ask Alice to turn down the volume, Google Assistante - to order a taxi or Siri - to get an alarm clock. Technologies of language processing are in demand in developments related to the construction of artificial intelligence: in search engines, for extracting facts, evaluating the tonality of the text, machine translation and dialogue.

Google announces a competition of attacks on computer vision algorithms

Google announces a competition of attacks on computer vision algorithmsRecognition of images using neural networks is getting better, but so far researchers have not overcome some of its fundamental shortcomings. Where a person clearly and clearly sees, for example, a bicycle, even an advanced trained AI can see a bird.
 
 
Often the reason for the so-called "harmful data" (or "competitive elements", or "malicious copies" or even a bunch of options, because "adversary examples" never received the standard translation). These are data that deceive the neural network classifier, giving it signs of other classes-information that is not important and not visible to human ...

How did I become a developer in ABBYY

How did I become a developer in ABBYY On this wonderful 256th day of the year, we congratulate all those involved in c Day of the programmer! And not only those who work on the specialty, but also all those who are fond of programming. By researchers from Evans Data Corporation, in the world of 23 million developers. And, probably, it does not matter whether it's a lot or not although this is comparable to the population of all of Australia. The main thing is that the people of this profession contribute to the bright and technological future every day.
 
 
We wish all developers significant and interesting projects, more good code...

The main theses from the interview of Ilona Mask at Joe Rogan

Ilon Mask came to comedian Joe Rogan on his podcast Joe Rogan Experience.
 
?5 hours they talked about AI, immortality, Neuralink, innovations, social networks, colonization of space, drilling tunnels, flamethrower, flying cars, renewable energy, car safety. We discussed Porsche and Rolex, corruption and the courts of Tesla, the kindness of people, the role of Mask in the history of mankind. As everyone already knows, we smoked the grass and drank whiskey.

Expert system on Rails

The article is devoted to the creation of an expert system. In the beginning of the article - the block diagram from the book from the list of literature, then the description of the database and algorithm. Next is a "help on how to do this project", which describes the algorithm for creating this project. At the end of the article is a list of references. Also in it there are a couple of screenshots.

Breakthrough Philanthropy: breakthrough projects in the scale of Humanity

We create distinct, clear, measurable requirements and say: "We do not care where you come from and what you've ever done, if you solve this problem and win" .
 
- Peter Diamandis
 
In 201? San Francisco hosted a conference where some of the most influential IT professionals, investors, superintelligent specialists and nanotechnologists (Drexler's companions) were brainstorming on projects that could positively influence the whole of humanity and what the future will look like with the introduction of the most daring and radical technologies.

How to find similar texts and sort

There is a simple method for sorting a set of texts by similarity to a given text: according to the Euclidean distance between the word frequencies in the analyzed texts. In principle, this algorithm should be understandable, a simple implementation can be found here: github.com/srogatch/TextMatching .
 
 
Surprisingly, a simple method gives good results. For example, if we are looking for the next book to read, you can enter the text of a read book or several read books as a sample for searching, and then for this repository of 10 books we get the following results for the book "FAIRY TALES ...
