Deep learning: FIFA supervised learning video

Teach yourself

Use the internet (including “pictures / картинки”) to quickly get a general idea of the following”

  • What is deep learning and how is it connected to artificial intelligence and machine learning?
  • What is a neural network?
  • One type of neural network is an LSTM network. What do the letters “LSTM” stand for?
  • How many people in the world speak “Indian” English?

Now read the video questions then watch and answer them:

According to the speaker, why is the network better at recognizing a player then the ball?

What do the two LSTM networks do?

Why can’t the program defend well?

Tesla Artificial Intelligence

You’re going to watch a video with Elon Musk + Tesla specialist to learn how Tesla cars use artificial intelligence (neural networks) to drive by themselves. Before watching, do two things:

1 – In this video of a self-driving car, why do you think the camera has some things in blue, some in green, some in red, yellow, purple etc..

2 – Use the internet to answer these questions in 15 minutes:

a – Why is it difficult for computers to recognize images of things like animals, trees or cars?

b – What does an artificial neural network look like? What does the human brain’s neural network look like? (CLUE: use google pictures)

c -How long does it take to train a neural network to do something like recognize a dog? How long does it take to train a little child to recognize a dog?

d – Is it easier to train the car to drive in a lane in a highway, or to drive in this situation…

e – How many cars does Tesla have in its fleet? Why is this an advantage when it comes to self driving?


35 minutes: Now watch the Tesla presentation from the Artificial Neural Network expert: (from 1 hour fifty one minutes to 2 hours twenty five mark – if you want you can continue watching the Question and answer session )

Business Machine Learning: text-to-speech

The Situation

It’s critical for patients to understand what medicine they’re taking and how to take it. Every prescription medication in Australia requires an accompanying Consumer Medicines Information (CMI) leaflet, describing what the medicine does, how to take it, and possible side effects. The trouble with the leaflets is that the information on them changes frequently, and it’s difficult to get updated information to consumers.

GuildLink, the pre-eminent provider of up-to-date medicine information for consumers and health providers, solves this problem by storing, managing and distributing CMIs electronically. They recognized the need for audio CMIs to meet the needs of consumers who can’t use the printed information for a variety of reasons—including impaired vision, a non-English-speaking background, and learning disabilities such as dyslexia

Blazing Trails

Thanks to the Appen TTS engine, GuildLink was the frst company in the world to
provide audio CMIs and is still one of the only ones doing it. “There’s an increase
in demand for accurate and current medicines information and being able to
provide the information in multiple ways has helped alleviate that,” says Paonne.
“Appen’s text-to-speech conversion has been pivotal in helping us provide more
information in more ways and helping patients understand what they’re taking.”

GuildLink’s pioneering service has led to partnerships with several Australian
government-sponsored websites that use the information in the company’s
database. Those include the Therapeutic Goods Administration site, and other
distributors of medicine information.

But the company doesn’t want to stop there. “To further improve accessibility,
we’d like to look into translating the CMIs into multiple languages in the future,”
says Paonne. “It’s so important that consumers have high-quality, accurate
information they can understand. Our philosophy is the more information you
give people, the better.”
