Since then, however, there has been a growing number of women proving their mettle in this field. Among them is Fiona Lim, one of

Discovering the Science behind Hyperparameter Tuning

Companies hire large teams of data scientists to manually tune hyperparameter configurations of deep learning models.  These parameters are used to control the learning process and the tuning is extremely tedious and time consuming since it involves training the model to know the resulting performance of each configuration. For Bryan Low, an associate professor at

Imbuing ML with Human-like Intelligence

How can a financial fraud detection model trained in one country be applied in another? How does mastery of C++ lead to rapid mastery of Java and C#? Associate Professor Sinno Jialin Pan from Nanyang Technological University cited the first as an application of transfer learning, and the second as an analogy to explain how

Understanding the Behaviour of Learning Algorithms in Zero-sum Games

In economic and game theory, zero-sum games are settings for perfect competition where the gain of one player is exactly equal to the loss of the other. But what happens in environments where many intelligent agents – human or artificial – interact with one other? Do these systems attain a state of equilibrium or do they
