Helping the Blind See

The Sense of Vision is taken for granted by us in our day to day life, but only a visually impaired person can understand the true value and necessity of Vision. To accelerate further research and to boost the possible applications of this technology, Google made the latest version of their Image Captioning System available as an open source model in Tensorflow.

The Importance of Intents and Context in Chatbots

Humans are good in conversations, because they can understand the intent of any statement, also the context in which the statement is placed.
Using machine learning, statements are mapped to intents, and the chabot can handle infinite variations of the same statement. Why is this technique useful?

In the World of Document Similarity

How does a human infer whether two documents are similar? This question has dazzled cognitive scientists, and is one area under which a lot of research is taking place. As of now there is no product that is able to match or surpass human capability in finding the similarity in documents. But things are improving in this domain, and companies such as IBM and Microsoft are investing a lot in this area.

Why is it Important for Executives to know about Artificial Intelligence?

Imagine you are an IT executive in a company. As per your role, you have to offer IT solutions to problems that your company is facing, be it related to Finance, Sales, HR, Administration, etc. Maybe you are already playing this role. You are living in a perfect world, where most of the problems that you are solving can be solved with programming. You are living in a non-Artificial Intelligence world.

The Importance of F1 Score

At Cere Labs, we are building various image classification systems. While building any kind of classification system one is often challenged to test the trained models. One useful measure to test such models is accuracy, which is the proportion of true results and the total number of images examined. If we are trying to classify the image of an apple, accuracy will be the measure of how accurately the classifier is able to detect the apple in an image.

Why Study the Brain?

“There is no scientific study more vital to man than the study of his own brain. Our entire view of the universe depends on it.” ― Francis Crick.

After unraveling the mysteries of DNA, the secret to life, Francis Crick for the rest of his life turned his attention to solve the mysteries of brain and consciousness. He was certain that the answer to intelligence lies deep in the structure of brain.

GPU - The brain of Artificial Intelligence

Machine Learning algorithms require tens and thousands of CPU based servers to train a model, which turns out to be an expensive activity. Machine Learning researchers and engineers are often faced with the problem of running their algorithms fast.

Although initially invented for processing graphics in computer games, GPUs today are used in machine learning to perform feature detection from vast amount of unlabeled data.

From Cats to Convolutional Neural Networks

Widely used in image recognition, Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) consist of multiple layers of neuron collection which look at small window of the input image, called receptive fields.

The history of Convolutional Neural Networks begins with a famous experiment “Receptive Fields of Single Neurons in the Cat’s Striate Cortex” conducted by Hubel and Wiesel. The experiment confirmed the long belief of neurobiologists and psychologists that the neurons in the brain act as feature detectors.
