I’ve been to dozens of retail-related conferences in the past year, most of which were attended by retailers, brands and early-growth companies seeking to gain traction in the retail ecosystem. Over the year, I’ve seen a continuous increase in the number of AI-driven technologies and companies showcasing solutions for retailers. I’ve also observed growing interest … Continue reading Four Ways AI Is Leveling The Retail Playing Field Versus Amazon
By Tyler Elliot Bettilyon https://tebs-lab.com Have you ever been asked, “Can’t you just use an API for that?” and thought to yourself “What the hell is an API?” Perhaps you started off by Googling “APIs” and quickly found yourself drowning in acronyms, jargon, and unhelpful exposition. Do I need to take a REST or should I … Continue reading What Is an API and Why Should I Use One?
By Jason Brownlee It can be confusing when you get started in applied machine learning. There are so many terms to use and many of the terms may not be used consistently. This is especially true if you have come from another field of study that may use some of the same terms as machine learning, … Continue reading What is the Difference Between a Parameter and a Hyperparameter?
Lenia (from Latin lenis, "smooth") is a cellular automaton, like Conway’s Game of Life, but with continuous states and continuous space-time. It supports an unexpected (bio)diversity of persistent life forms, each possesses idiosyncratic anatomy and physiology, and exhibits a wide range of behaviors. More than 300 species have been identified, many discovered using human-based evolutionary … Continue reading Lenia – Mathematical Life Forms
H/T: Vincent Boucher Abstract : "Distributional reinforcement learning (distributional RL) has seen empirical success in complex Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) in the setting of nonlinear function approximation. However there are many different ways in which one can leverage the distributional approach to reinforcement learning. In this paper, we propose GAN Q-learning, a novel distributional RL method … Continue reading GAN Q-learning
DeepLesion is a large-scale and diverse database of lesions in CT images. It was collected based on the bookmarks in the picture archiving and communication system of NIH. Currently, it contains 32,735 lesions from 32,120 axial CT slices of 4,427 patients. It can be used in studies of multi-class lesion detection, retrieval, segmentation, etc.DeepLesion has been released. Download … Continue reading DeepLesion: a large-scale and diverse CT lesion dataset
