Machine Learning to Machine Reasoning

Learning and Reasoning are two essential abilities associated with intelligence. As humans we see a scene, we hear a sentence and we just know what they mean. We can learn and we can take decisions based on reasoning. Bringing this capability to machine is a challenging task. The efforts have been in achieving the same… Continue reading Machine Learning to Machine Reasoning

Machine Learning – Know Hows

Though there has been significant amount of research and development in the field of machine learning, every new experiment needs something new off the shelf. Developing successful machine learning applications requires a substantial amount of ‘black art’ that is difficult to find in any of the textbooks. Machine learning has three major components: Representation –… Continue reading Machine Learning – Know Hows

Human Problem Solving

The Process Machine solving should not be like a magic making process. Along with result, it is equally important to know the process by which the results were obtained. The thinking process of the machine must be like the way we humans do. The way humans have patterns in their thoughts, it should be embedded… Continue reading Human Problem Solving

Data Science – Till Date

This post presents the key points (As I see it) from the article “50 Years of Data Science” written by David Donoho, Sept 18, 2015. Version 1.00. Research in data science is moving to a meta-level, where we can ask a question like: If we use such-and-such a method across all of science, how much… Continue reading Data Science – Till Date

Decades ago the concept of web seemed like an un-realizable dream, more like a science fiction movie concept. Today, with a realized web, so looks the realization of an intelligent semantic web. The statement of ‘people doing the creative work and web doing the administration and management work’ can be respectfully discarded. Web is growing… Continue reading Social Machines
