A Machine Learning Guide to HTM (Hierarchical Temporal Memory)

A Machine Learning Guide to HTM (Hierarchical Temporal Memory)

My name is Vincenzo Lomonaco and I’m a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Bologna where, in early 2019, I obtained my PhD in computer science working on “Continual Learning with Deep Architectures” in the effort of making current AI systems more autonomous and adaptive. Personally, I’ve always been fascinated and intrigued by the research…

Machine and Deep Learning with OCaml Natively

NOTE: many places need fixes, not finished yet. I will cover the neural network module in this chapter. My original purpose of introducing neural network module into Owl is two-fold: Test the expressiveness of Owl. Neural network is a useful and complex tool for building modern analytical applications so I chose it. To validate my…
Learning to Predict Without Looking Ahead

Learning to Predict Without Looking Ahead

Cartpole Swingup with Observational Dropout Our agents are only given infrequent observations of the real environment. As a side effect for optimizing performance in this setting, a “world model” emerges. We show the true dynamics in color, with full saturation denoting frames the policy can see. The black and white outline shows the state of…
Inherited Learning? It Happens, but How Is Uncertain

Inherited Learning? It Happens, but How Is Uncertain

Memories passed down in our genes? Not exactly. But biologists have observed examples of learned behaviors and acquired responses being transmitted through several generations, contrary to the traditional rules of genetic inheritance.Lucy Reading-Ikkanda/Quanta MagazineAs a biological concept, the inheritance of acquired characteristics has had a wild roller coaster ride over the past two centuries. Championed by Jean-Baptiste…

Now the Machines Are Learning How to Smell

Now the Machines Are Learning How to Smell

Google has its own perfume—or at least one team of the company’s researchers does. Crafted under the guidance of expert French perfumers, the mixture has notes of vanilla, jasmine, melon, and strawberries. “It wasn’t half bad,” says Alex Wiltschko, who keeps a vial of the perfume in his kitchen.Google’s not marketing that scent anytime soon,…
Computers Are Learning to Read—But They’re Still Not So Smart

Computers Are Learning to Read—But They’re Still Not So Smart

In the fall of 2017, Sam Bowman, a computational linguist at New York University, figured that computers still weren’t very good at understanding the written word. Sure, they had become decent at simulating that understanding in certain narrow domains, like automatic translation or sentiment analysis (for example, determining if a sentence sounds “mean or nice,”…

Learning how to Prove: From the Coq Proof Assistant to Textbook Style

(Submitted on 5 Mar 2018) Abstract: We have developed an alternative approach to teaching computer science students how to prove. First, students are taught how to prove theorems with the Coq proof assistant. In a second, more difficult, step students will transfer their acquired skills to the area of textbook proofs. In this article we…

10 of the best language learning apps that will actually make you fluent –...

These apps will make sure you're understood.  Sarah Tew/CNET Most high schools require students to take at least one language course before they can graduate. I took French, and while I loved the language, it didn't come naturally to me. The cycle repeated my first year of college when I tried my hand at Spanish…
