Tensorflow Object Detection API

Summary: Creating accurate machine learning models capable of localizing and identifying multiple objects in a single image remains a core challenge in computer vision. The TensorFlow Object Detection API is an open source framework built on top of TensorFlow that makes it easy to construct, train and deploy object detection models. At Google we’ve certainly found this codebase to be useful for our computer vision needs, and we hope that you will as well.

Free Online Data Science Books

The title says they are “mathematics” textbooks but there’s tons of material for data scientists (who do lots of math) too.

Particularly relevant: probability, statistics, linear algebra, graph theory, inference, learning algorithms, convex optimization, statistical signal processing, and more!

Today, Udemy has decided to do yet another AMAZING $10 promo.

As usual, I’m providing $10 coupons for all my courses in the links below. Please use these links and share them with your friends!

The $10 promo doesn’t come around often, so make sure you pick up everything you are interested in, or could become interested in later this year. The promo goes until June 21. Don’t wait!

At the end of this post, I’m going to provide you with some additional links to get machine learning prerequisites (calculus, linear algebra, Python, etc…) for $10 too!

Here’s When Machines Will Take Your Job, as Predicted by AI Gurus

Many top minds think that automation will cost humans their employment, with up to 47% of all jobs gone in the next 25 years. And chances are, this number could be even higher and the massive job loss will come earlier.

So when will your job become obsolete? Researchers at the University of Oxford surveyed the world’s best artificial intelligence experts to find out when exactly machines will be better at humans in various occupations.

Self-Normalizing Neural Networks

Success stories of Deep Learning with standard feed-forward neural networks (FNNs) are rare. FNNs that perform well are typically shallow and, therefore cannot exploit many levels of abstract representations. We introduce self-normalizing neural networks (SNNs) to enable high-level abstract representations. While batch normalization requires explicit normalization, neuron activations of SNNs automatically converge towards zero mean and unit variance.

Facebook Trains ImageNet in 1 Hour

Facebook published a paper today detailing how they are able to train nearly 1.3 million images in under an hour using 256 Tesla P100 GPUs that previously took days on a single system.

The team reduced the training time of a ResNet-50 deep learning model on ImageNet from 29 hours to one.
