Artificial Intelligence 101 – Part 5

  Deep Learning is stemming from neural network. Neural network is an algorithms that try to mimic how the brain functions. This topics was extensively studied in the 90s and moderate success due to lack of sufficient computational power and data. Here is the history of neural networks: 1950-60s: Simplest Neural networks (Rosenblatt, etc) 1970’s:…

Artificial Intelligence 101 – Part 4

  Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a maintopic in AI where it is an active and interactive fields that’s at the intersection of computer science, AI and computational lingustics. NLP involves languages as text. In fact, most of the data is actually in text form, and estimated we have about hundreds of thousands of petabytes…

Artificial Intelligence 101 – Part 3

Search algorithms are designed to explore spaces systematically. Real world problem are more complex. We can use iterative improvement algorithms and local search. The objective is to find best state according to an optimization function. Examples such as: Integrated circuit design, telecommunications network optimization. Idea: Keep a single “current state”, and try to improve it.…
