Using Reinforcement Learning to build a Self-Learning grasping Robot

In this post, I will explain my experience over the course of a year of working with Reinforcement Learning (RL) on autonomous robotics manipulation. It is always hard to start a big project which requires many moving parts. It was undoubtedly the same in this project. I want to pass the knowledge I gathered through this process to help others overcome the initial inertia.

OpenAI GPT-3 wrote this article about Webpack

This article was written by OpenAI GPT-3 model, using “davinci” engine, I gave it a small input and this is the final output. Can you tell the difference between this and a human-made article? Obviously the formatting can be improved, and some part are missing but count that, my input was just “webpack is a build tool” and nothing more.

The evolution of Big Data compute platforms  – past, now and later

A journey into the evolution of Big Data Compute Platforms like Hadoop and Spark. Sharing my perspective on where we were, where we are and where we are headed. Over the past few years I have been part of a large number of Hadoop projects. Back in 2012–2016 the majority of our work was done using on-premises Hadoop infrastructure.

How to build AI applications users can trust

To work effectively, algorithms need user data — typically on an ongoing basis to help refine and improve the experience. To get user data, you need users. And to get users, especially lasting users who trust you with their data, you need to provide options that suit their comfort levels now while still allowing them to change them in future. In essence, to get user buy-in, you need a two-step approach: Let users know what data you want to collect and why, and give them control over the collection.

Benchmark M1 vs Xeon vs Core i5 vs K80 and T4

Since their launch in November, Apple Silicon M1 Macs are showing very impressive performances in many benchmarks. These new processors are so fast that many tests compare MacBook Air or Pro to high-end desktop computers instead of staying in the laptop range. It usually does not make sense in benchmark. But here things are different as M1 is faster than most of them for only a fraction of their energy consumption.

New IBM-MIT system brings AI to microcontrollers – paving the way to ‘smarter’ IoT

Smart homes are now all the rage, with smart speakers controlling your lights, your door lock, your fridge. But what if you didn’t want to use a smart speaker or any sophisticated computer to operate your devices? What if instead, a device like a lock had a cheap, tiny but powerful embedded AI that could recognize your face to open the door – and run on batteries for a year, no WIFi or smart speaker needed?

Designing AI agents’ behaviors with Behavior Trees

In our previous posts, we discussed about Planning and Acting. Both are for planning, one with a Descriptive Model and the other with an Operational Model of actions. Acting with Operational Model uses Refinement Methods to refine abstract tasks into subtasks or commands that can be executed by Execution Platform. In a rather complex domain where there are multiple methods that we can use to refine a task, this approach excels.
