Cognitive Computing: How to Transform Digital Systems to The Next Level of Intelligence | Data Science | Scoop.it
Cognitive computing might be one of the many buzzwords that you today hear and see alongside such terms as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data. However, quite opposite to these terms, Cognitive computing, as it seems, does not have a clear definition yet – and this is the fact commonly agreed on in the industry.

How Algorithms Can Bring Down Minorities' Credit Scores

How Algorithms Can Bring Down Minorities' Credit Scores | Data Science | Scoop.it

The push to consider more types of information can help people who lack credit scores, or who might not have the usual indicators of creditworthiness, access loans and bank accounts that might otherwise be closed off to them. But the more complex and opaque these powerful algorithms get, the more ways there are for people to be disqualified from job searches and loan applications—and the harder it is to know why.

A Novel Approach for Modeling Complex Deep Futures

A Novel Approach for Modeling Complex Deep Futures | Data Science | Scoop.it
Many large-scale, complex systems consist of interactions between humans, human-made systems and the environment. The approach developed in this paper is to partition the problem space into two fundamental layers and identify, parameterize and model the main dimensions of each layer and interactions across and in between layers. One layer is the key actors or major organization or human decision makers who influence the state of the world

Understanding deep learning requires rethinking generalization

Understanding deep learning requires rethinking generalization | Data Science | Scoop.it
Despite their massive size, successful deep artificial neural networks can exhibit a remarkably small difference between training and test performance. Conventional wisdom attributes small generalization error either to properties of the model family, or to the regularization techniques used during training.
Through extensive systematic experiments, we show how these traditional approaches fail to explain why large neural networks generalize well in practice.
