Vehicle Detection and Tracking

By Ivan Kazakov — 7 min read.

In my implementation, I used a Deep Learning approach to image recognition. Specifically, I leveraged the extraordinary power of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to recognize images.


Topic Modeling for The New York Times News Dataset

By Moorissa Tjokro— 4 min read.

We live in a world where streams of data are continuously collected. Searching for insights from the collected information can therefore become very tedious and time-consuming. Topic modeling was designed as a tool to organize, search, and understand vast quantities of textual information.


The Power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR and AR) on Medical Imaging at GPU Tech Conference (GTC) 2017

By erinjerri —10 min read.

This year’s GTC organized a healthcare track dedicated to applications at the nexus of artificial intelligence and healthtech. A number of workshops focused on applying machine learning algorithms using Nvidia hardware, Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), to predict the onset of early stage cancer detection, with many sessions analyzing other cancerous tumors in anatomical structures such as the lung, breast, and brain.


How to grow data

By Edd Wilder-James — 5 min read.

The twin tides of digitization and artificial intelligence have risen so high that no business can ignore them. IT has come out from behind the curtain as the driver of value and innovation. Little wonder that a recent issue of the Economist proclaimed that “the world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data”.


My Cyberclone : Digitized Self

By Sampreeti Bhattacharyya — 4 min read.

I started poking into this project as a personal nighttime hobby~ a year ago (https://techcrunch.com/2016/01/09/virtual-reality-and-a-parallel-universe-of-cyberclones/ Ross Finman Benjamin Reinhardt). Not that I have any lack of things to do between a PhD, startup, mentoring my students and whining about life.


To err is algorithm: Algorithmic fallibility and economic organisation

By juan.mateos-garcia — 5 min read.

Dig below the surface of some of today’s biggest tech controversies and you are likely to find an algorithm misfiring.
