The rise of Generative AI models like Large Language Models (LLMs) and Natural Language Processing (NLP) is offering a beacon of hope, automating optimization and creating cleaner code. Let’s delve into the roles of LLMs and NLPs in this code cleanup mission.

Science is and always has been based on data, but the terms "data-centric" and the "4th paradigm of" materials research indicate a radical change in how information is retrieved, handled and research is performed. It signifies a transformative shift towards managing vast data collections, digital repositories, and innovative data analytics methods.

What's so special about sequence classification with BERT? We can use it to identify the sentiment of customer reviews, summarize long-form content, and identify and classify named entities (people, locations, organizations) in a text.

For me, to first order, data science with impact is data science for the public good. In other words, you must be able to articulate how a new project or process will benefit the public once complete.

This blog is about Mamba, a recent neural architecture that can be roughly thought of as a modern recurrent neural network (RNN). The model works really well and is a legitimate competitor with the ubiquitous Transformer architecture.

The area of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science is massive. To understand between Artificial Intelligence and Data Science, often there is a lot of confusion. In this article, we’ve summarized the relationship between these technologies.

Aria’s original Pilot Dataset provided computer vision researchers access to anonymized Aria sequences, captured in a variety of scenarios, such as cooking, playing games, or exercising.

💡 Tech Talks

A new, fresh series of interviews and podcasts by Alex on: causality, causal AI, machine learning, optimisation, decision-making and Python.

🤖 AI News:

Humanoid robotics startup Figure AI has reportedly secured a massive $675M funding round led by tech giants including Jeff Bezos, Nvidia, Microsoft, and OpenAI.

By focusing on AI chip technology, particularly with its H100 and the upcoming H200 GPUs, Nvidia has established a dominant position in the AI sector. This strategic pivot propelled the company to a $2 trillion market cap, a first for any chipmaker, placing it in the elite company of Apple and Microsoft.

Tyler Perry has paused an $800m (£630m) expansion of his Atlanta studio complex after the release of OpenAI’s video generator Sora and warned that “a lot of jobs” in the film industry will be lost to artificial intelligence.

Perplexity just dropped this new podcast, Discover Daily, that recaps the news in 3-4 minutes. It already broke into the top #200 news pods within a week. AND it's all 100% AI-generated.
