10 uses cases - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Education #AI

Hoy traemos a este espacio esta slideshare titulada "10 uses cases - Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Education" de ... que comienzan explicándonos así, en su post titulado ...
In the beginning of 2016 Jill Watson, an IBM-designed bot, has been helping graduate students at Georgia Institute of Technology solve problems with their design projects. Responding to questions over email and posted on forums, Jill had a casual, colloquial tone, and was able to offer nuanced and accurate responses within minutes. A robot has been teaching graduate students for 5 months and none of them realized. Here are just a few of artificial intelligence tools and technologies that will shape and define the educational experience of the future.
Duolingo: voice recognition for language learning
Duolingo is the world’s most popular platform to learn a language. App predicts your word strength, figures out which sentences will help you best practice your weakest words/skills, recommends immersion practice documents (translations) based on your progress and estimates the quality of a translation-in-progress.
Plexuss: college comparison and recruitment platform
Plexuss facilitates contact between universities and future students, and aims to help students make an informed decision when it comes to choosing the right university. It allows users to take a virtual tour of their selected campuses, compare colleges, and chat with universities of their choice. The platform includes a college ranking system, which collates data from trustworthy sources including Forbes, Reuters and Shanghai Ranking. Algorithm compares data using a variety of criteria like in- and out-of-state tuition, ...(leer más...)

MAGENTA. Make Music and Art Using Machine Learning. @douglas_eck

´Hoy traemos a este espacio a Make Music and Art Using Machine Learning, que nos presentan así;

About Magenta

Magenta is a Google Brain project to ask and answer the questions, “Can we use machine learning to create compelling art and music? If so, how? If not, why not?” Our work is done in TensorFlow, and we regularly release our models and tools in open source. These are accompanied by demos, tutorial blog postings and technical papers. To follow our progress, watch our GitHub and join our discussion group.
Magenta encompasses two goals. It’s first a research project to advance the state-of-the art in music, video, image and text generation. So much has been done with machine learning to understand content—for example speech recognition and translation; in this project we explore content generation and creativity. Second, Magenta is building a community of artists, coders, and machine learning researchers. To facilitate that, the core Magenta team is building open-source infrastructure around TensorFlow for making art and music. This already includes tools for working with data formats like MIDI, and is expanding to platforms that help artists connect with machine learning models

Douglas Eck

I’m a research scientist working on Magenta, an effort to generate music, video, images and text using machine intelligence. Magenta is part of the Google Brain team and is using TensorFlow (, an open-source library for machine learning. The question Magenta asks is, “Can machines make music and art? If so, how? If not, why not?” The goal if Magenta is to produce open-source tools and models that help creative people be even more creative. I’m primarily looking at how to use so-called “generative” machine learning models to create engaging media. Additionally, I’m working on how to bring other aspects of the creative process into play. For example, art and music is not just about generating new pieces. It’s also about drawing one’s attention, being surprising, telling an interesting story, knowing what’s interesting in a scene, and so on.
Before starting the Magenta project, I worked on music search and recommendation for Google Play Music. My research goal in this area was to use machine learning and audio signal processing to help listeners find the music they want when they want it. This involves both learning from audio and learning from how users consume music. In the audio domain, the main goal is to transform the ones and zeros in a digital audio file into something where musically-similar songs are also numerically similar, making it easier to do music recommendation. This is (a) user-dependent: my idea of similar is not the same as yours and (b) changes with context: my idea of similarity changes when I make a playlist for jogging versus making a playlist for a dinner party. I might choose the same song (say "Taxman" by the Beatles) but perhaps it would be the tempo for jogging that drove the selection of that specific song versus "I like the album Revolver and want to add it to the dinner party mix" for a dinner party playlist.
I joined Google in 2010. Before then, I was an Associate Professor in Computer Science at University of Montreal. I helped found the BRAMS research center (Brain Music and Sound; and was involved at the McGill CIRMMT center (Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology; Aside from audio signal processing and machine learning, I worked on music performance modeling. What exactly does a good music performer add to what is already in the score? I treated this as a machine learning question: Hypothetically, if we showed a piano-playing robot a huge collection of Chopin performances--- from the best in the world all the way down to that of a struggling teenage pianist---could it learn to play well by analyzing all of these examples? If so, what’s the right way to perform that analysis? In the end I learned a lot about the complexity and beauty of human music performance, and how performance relates to and extends composition.
