Machine Learning for Absolute Beginners, by Oliver Theobald

AI that caught my eye

Here are three links to AI articles that got my attention this week:

  1. Just how good is AI today and where is it heading? This fascinating piece from the NY Times shows the power of OpenAI's DALL-E 2 application. The sample images produced by DALL-E are stunning and the writer, Kevin Roose, makes an excellent point when he says, "you should be paying closer attention to the real, tangible developments that are fueling" AI. That's precisely why I decided to dive in by reading as much as I can on the topic, following many of the thought leaders and sharing my journey on this website.
  2. AI is already in a lot of places and you just don't realize it. Take, for example, the way Panera Bread is leveraging the technology to improve their drive-thru experience. Note that they're also using AI to help measure coffee volume and temps.
  3. Worried about data bias and privacy? Synthetic data might help address both of those issues. It feels like anonymized data on steroids but as I dug deeper into the topic I learned that one of the drawbacks, at least for now, is that it's unable to fully replicate the complexity of the original data.
