Welcome To The World Of Machine Learning, Programming And Mathematics With Ahmad Bazzi

When it comes to innovation, there is nothing that a little bit of hard work and a lot of education can’t do. this is where Ahmad Bazzi comes into the equation. He does this all with the help of his trusty sidekick Broid. It’s a hard job explaining complex mathematical questions to people regarding data sets, but somebody has to do it.

The machine learning that he propagates is using videos to teach. He is a smart man with a lot to offer. He has a PhD in electrical engineering. He teaches Convex Optimization, Machine Learning and programming. Everything that he does has a lot of complexity to it. However, the simple products are the graphs of data that we take for granted.

Broid is more of a corner cartoon. It trully is Ahmad Bazzi that does the complex work. His site is so up to date that he even

Facial recognition software is learning to identify bear and cow faces

Nowadays almost everyone uses facial recognition in some form or another — maybe it’s to get into your iPhone, or when social media platforms suggest tags in photos. But if you thought humans had the monopoly on facial recognition software, think again. Forget lions and tigers — bears can use facial recognition too.

After spending over a decade tracking and studying grizzly bears in British Columbia, Canada, bear biologist Melanie Clapham has teamed up with two Silicon Valley-based tech workers to create a facial recognition software called BearID. Designed to monitor grizzly bears and track them via small differences like scars and nicks, the project has been used to recognise 132 of the animals thus far.

By adapting existing artificial intelligence programs (namely, funny apps that put moustaches on dogs) the team was able to collect 4,674 images of grizzly bears. According

“No one is collecting systematic data and it seems like a tremendous oversight,” she said.

So she started doing it — but is the first to say that her data is incomplete.

“If we can get more participation from more states, it can help us understand these patterns and share information about what works and what doesn’t,” Oster said.

“It’s clear to me that a federally funded, organized effort on this would be potentially better. We need more resources on this problem.”

The CDC did not have an immediate comment on Oster’s reaction.

Redfield has not insisted that all schools got back to immediate face-to-face teaching

“Dr. Redfield encourages communities to make decisions about in-person learning based upon transmission levels in the community and also within schools’ educational settings, which can be much lower than transmission levels within a community,” the CDC spokesperson said.

Grade 12 student Koby Wilson is one of 230 students in Fisher River Cree Nation who received a laptop and MiFi box for online schooling.

Fisher River Cree Nation is making the transition to online learning easier by giving students in the community a free laptop or iPad and internet connection device.

“It’s a great thing… because not every family actually has the money to afford a laptop,” said Grade 12 student Koby Wilson.

Wilson is one of 470 students who attend the two schools in the community about 170 kilometres north of Winnipeg. He works part time at the local restaurant and is a councillor for Fisher River’s junior chief and council.

Orboot Dinos offers an interesting phygital experience with lands and dinos from 60 million years ago.

If you go to restaurants or shopping malls, you’ll probably see parents giving their mobile device to their child to keep him or her quiet. Even at home, many parents love to see their kids play with their mobile phones, laptops and tablets, but healthcare experts warn that this could affect the child’s mental and physical development. Constantly glued to the mobile phone, physical activity takes a backseat. This puts them at risk for obesity and other illnesses. Like it or not, the fact is that the proliferation of devices is growing by leaps and bounds, and we need to curb our children’s growing device addiction. Recently, this writer came across two interesting and meaningful solutions for parents worrying about their children’s increasing screen time.

“I know I’m not the only one,” said Heather Johnson, a parent of two students in the Greeley-Evans School District.

The district is closing their campus Monday, and Johnson said she is worried about her kids. 

“My girls are both remote learning and my 14-year-old is special needs,” Johnson said.

With the rise in COVID-19 cases across Colorado, Johnson said her financial struggles have followed the same pattern.

C3.ai, machine learning startup backed by software pioneer Tom Siebel, files for IPO

Tom Siebel, an early employee of database giant Oracle, later a billionaire after selling his eponymous software firm to Oracle, says his new venture, C3, is bigger than either of those.  

C3.ai, the artificial intelligence services company founded by software pioneer Tom Siebel, Friday evening filed for an initial public offering of $100 million worth of its shares, led by investment banks Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, and Bank of America.

C3 plans to list under the ticker “AI” on The New York Stock Exchange. The number of shares to be offered and the price range for the proposed offering have not yet been determined, C3 said.

Siebel, who was recruited to database giant Oracle in 1983, later founded the eponymous enterprise customer relationship management software firm in 1993. He sold that company to Oracle in 2006 for $5.85 billion, and went on to found C3 in 2009.
