A.I. Artificial Intelligence: From Stanley Kubrick to Steven Spielberg: The Vision Behind the Film

Meet Keras. Keras is a high-level neural networks library, written in Python.

Since the rise of neural networks in production environments–those with practical real life applications–the field has been primarily a privilege for scientists specializing in machine learning and complex math theories. I like to compare the state of AI by drawing a line back to 50’s, when the same statement applied to early days of computer science. Earlier, to write a program, a scientist had to implement a decent amount of math and then to translate it into machine codes, which ran on a particular hardware.

It was true until Grace Hopper wrote the first high-level compiler in 1952. Ever since compilers became even more abstract. A few years later the invention of C programming language started a golden age of computation and enabled thousands of people to join computer science. …
