The Wolfram Neural Net Repository builds on the company’s Wolfram Language neural framework to store neural net models and enable the immediate use for evaluation, training, visualization and transfer learning. The Wolfram Language neural network framework includes models … continue reading

MIT CSAIL brings reasoning to machine learning

Machine learning is a hot topic in the software industry right now. More and more companies are taking advantage of this artificial intelligence technique to train machines on their data and make predictions. Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Laboratory (CSAIL) want to take it a step further by revealing how a machine makes … continue reading

SD Times Blog: Machine learning resources for all levels of expertise

They finally did it: They made “artificial intelligence” a buzzword. Typically, buzzwords don’t come from decades-old evolving disciplines of computer science. Making “machine learning,” “AI” and “neural nets” into buzzwords means that millions of developers are likely having their first experience with this stuff now. In that vein, we bring you a nice long list … continue reading

SD Times Blog: Fonts and neural nets

It seems like neural networks are taking over. We see their code open-sourced, they power our self-driving vehicles, we use them as programming assistants, and we’ve even let them rate our selfies. Now, deep neural networks have analyzed 50,000 fonts, just because. The man behind this crazy font fun is Erik Bernhardsson, a CTO at … continue reading
