Generate Websites with Deep Learning
This posting discusses how you can generate websites with deep learning. When it comes to software development, there are two types; one is the back-end the other is the front-end development. As the name suggests, back end development is the development that goes on behind the... Read more
Accelerating Deep Learning Recommender Systems by Over 15x Using RAPIDS, PyTorch, and fast.ai
This June, the RAPIDS Deep Learning team took part in the RecSys 2019 Challenge, where we placed 15th out of 1534 teams despite joining the competition in its final weeks. The competition centered around recommending hotel listings to users of the website Trivago, who was the host of the... Read more
What Your Business Needs to Know About Data Variety
The bigger your business, the more likely your data is…interesting. Old methods of data collection put data in silos across several departments. The computing power to handle data in all its forms wasn’t there, so breaking it up in the name of agile operations was key.... Read more
Deep Learning for Third-Party Risk Identification and Evaluation
Editor’s Note: Learn more about the technical details of this article at the talk “Deep Learning for Third-Party Risk Identification and Evaluation at Dow Jones” at ODSC Europe 2019 For more than 17 years, Dow Jones has supplied risk and compliance data to banking and financial... Read more
Opening The Black Box—Interpretability In Deep Learning
Editor’s Note: See Joris and Matteo at their tutorial “Opening The Black Box — Interpretability in Deep Learning” at ODSC Europe 2019 this November 20th in London. Why interpretability?  In the last decade, the application of deep neural networks to long-standing problems has brought a breakthrough... Read more
What is Implicit Deep Learning?
Prediction rules in deep learning are based on a forward, recursive computation through several layers. Implicit deep learning rules go much beyond, by relying on the solution of an implicit (or, “fixed-point”) equation that has to be numerically solved in order to make the prediction: for... Read more
Watch: Deep Learning in Real Time
Deep learning provides (relatively) new methods of automating a wide array of tasks historically thought only to be accomplished by the human brain. Applications range from difficult classifications and regressions to natural language understanding and image recognition. With Tyler Freckmann, we will take a tour of... Read more
Using Mobile Devices for Deep Learning
A key avenue for deploying deep learning models is a mobile device. The advantage of running models in mobile apps instead of sending them to the cloud is the reduction in latency and the ability to ensure data privacy for users. Despite the variety of deep... Read more
Using RAPIDS with PyTorch
In this post we take a look at how to use cuDF, the RAPIDS dataframe library, to do some of the preprocessing steps required to get the mortgage data in a format that PyTorch can process so that we can explore the performance of deep learning on... Read more
How to Use Deep Learning to Write Shakespeare
LSTM recurrent neural networks can be trained to generate free text. Let’s see how well AI can imitate the Bard “Many a true word hath been spoken in jest.” ― William Shakespeare, King Lear   “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-ey’d monster, which... Read more
