Alexander Wong, a Canada Research Chair in the field of Artificial Intelligence and an associate professor in the Department of Systems Deign Engineering, is interviewed in The O'Reilly Data Show on his research on designing a human-in-the-loop platform for building deep neural networks with efficient network architectures.
Unlike with traditional software, we don't always have an exact idea of how AI works. And in numerous scenarios, the opacity of deep-learning algorithms has caused larger troubles.
Using AI to understand AI is a topic explored by Prof. Alexander Wong of the System Design Engineering department in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo. Prof. Wong is the Canada Research Chair in Artificial Intelligence and Medical Imaging. He is also a co-founder of DarwinAI along with Sheldon Fernandez. DarwinAI is a startup located in Waterloo Ontario.
The First Bi-Annual Industrial Partners Meeting of the Waterloo AI Institute, has been an excellent success as per the testimony of a number of the attendees, whether industrial partners, faculty members or students.
10 new organizations have been added to the growing Partnership on AI community. The latest cohort of new members represents a diverse range of sectors, including media and telecommunications businesses, as well as civil rights organizations, academia, and research institutes. The Vision and Image Processing Lab at University of Waterloo is one of the new members.
Artificial intelligence has arrived at the point where most people know what it can do… but have no idea how it does it. The mere thought of building and training deep neural networks and algorithms is so daunting that many enterprises which could benefit from AI are reluctant to engage with the transformative tech.
Google’s AutoML is creating a buzz among AI watchers and the “AI-building-AI” concept is now a hot industry topic — what could be more appealing than having this mysterious new tech actually build your models for you?
Typically, deep learning approaches to voice recognition — systems that employ layers of neuron-mimicking mathematical functions to parse human speech — lean on powerful remote servers for bulk of processing.
A four-year, $400,000 partnership with Ontario’s University of Waterloo (UWaterloo) will support artificial intelligence (AI) research in disability claim prediction as well as fraud detection and natural language comprehension in customer service, Toronto-based Manulife Financial Corp. announced Tuesday.
