Natural language processing (NLP) deals with the key artificial intelligence technology of understanding complex human language communication. This lecture series provides a introduction to the cutting-edge research in deep learning applied to NLP, including question answering and machine translation.
Advances in of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning are broadening the scope of what technology can do in people’s everyday lives. Number of people are developing a curiosity in the fields with educational content online, it has never been easier to go from curiosity to proficiency.
David Thouless, Duncan Haldane, and Michael Kosterlitz won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016 for discovering that even microscopic matter at the smallest scale can exhibit macroscopic properties and phases that are topological. Watch this video to decode some seriously tricky science.
Learn the basics of Python from CS50. Python is a general-purpose interpreted, interactive, object-oriented, and high-level programming language. Harvard University's introduction to the intellectual enterprises of computer science and the art of programming. CS50 is the quintessential Harvard (and Yale!) course.
I asked the questions Wikipedia failed to fully answer: what is machine learning? who should be learning it. Phrases like neural nets & deep learning tap into our sense of fantasy, but when we jump from new tech to robot takeover, we miss the beauty and power of what machine learning actually is.
MIT CSAIL has developed a new design system to make the building of simple robots more accessible to those without design expertise. Users put together a design using templates, which is 3D printed as flat two-dimensional faces connected by joints, before being folded to assemble the final 3D shape.
