Early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, which causes vital and permanent damage to both motor and non-motor symptoms, is very important to prevent further deterioration of the patient condition. In the present study, Parkinson's Disease data set from UCI repository is classified using deep learning architecture. The deep learning architecture in the study is a feed-forward neural network (FFNN) which is builded by Keras of Python. The architecture in the study composes of an input layer, two hidden layers and softmax function with ReLu (Rectified Linear Units) as an output layer. The deep learning architecture solves binary classification problem since PD data set has two classes. In order to classify the PD data set, many tests were performed by splitting the test and train data in different ratios. The PD data set classification was succeeded with 100% accuracy using deep learning algorithm splitting in %20 of the data as the test and the remaining as train data in epoch 30.

Intelligence artificielle vulgarisée - Le Machine Learning et le Deep Learning par la pratique, un livre de Aurélien VANNIEUWENHUYZE, une critique de rawsrc

Bonjour chers membres du club,

Intelligence artificielle vulgarisée - Le Machine Learning et le Deep Learning par la pratique

Implementing Active Learning and Student-Centered Pedagogy in Large Classes | Blended and Flipped Learning - Faculty Focus

Nisha Malhotra, PhD, senior instructor for the Vancouver School of Economics  explains, There is a vast pedagogical literature spelling out the benefits of student engagement and active participation (1). 

Photo: Faculty Focus
A recent meta-analysis study of 225 active learning classes further concludes that “active learning has a greater impact on student mastery of higher- versus lower-level cognitive skills” (p. 8411). Active learning places the student at the center of a lecture’s objective and its outcome. Students in these lectures are not only engaged in learning but are also involved in cognitive processes such as comprehension and evaluation. These processes then translate into (a) improved and deeper learning, (b) better grades, and (c) lower failure rates (2, 3). Given this growing evidence, it would be beneficial to incorporate these active learning strategies into the classroom. My aim was to adopt some form of active learning to enhance my traditional lectures, and to improve my students’ class experience.  

There are wide-ranging theories of active and deep learning, and just as many applications of this kind of learning (1). So, how do we translate these theoretical frameworks into practical applications in our discipline? Not all strategies lend themselves well to different disciplines. Although bringing tactile elements to a classroom may help students in the sciences, a video case-study could be a better motivational tool for business studies. Thus, to improve learning, the game plan should be to motivate your students to participate in class with your class content.

Reducing the vast number of theories down to adaptable elements for my economics courses was honestly a process of trial and error. I struggled with time along with questions such as: How much class time should be devoted to active learning and participation? Should this be at the expense of course content? Given that first year undergraduate economics courses are mostly preparatory for advanced economics classes, the content of these courses is not up for debate, and none can be sacrificed. The solution was to use a blended learning approach: modifying the course structure, introducing online videos for review, and changing how the content was delivered in class.

In order to free up lecture time, roughly 15% of traditional lecture-style classes are now substituted with online reviews. Students watch video tutorials in order to review basic concepts before class...

Larger classes are, however, a big challenge. An average class size of a first year economics course can consist of 80 to 150 students. It is, thus, not feasible to interact with every group, let alone every student in a class of >100 students. Big lecture halls with fixed seats are not designed for group work. Have you ever tried to get students to walk around in these big lecture halls and form groups? You might as well forget about teaching that day.  After much thought, I decided to rely on peer interaction and trust that students, if asked, might engage in solving posed problems. The aim was to only ‘spark’ a discussion, not a debate. I wanted students to at least question their knowledge.

Top 15 Deep Learning Applications In 2020 | Deep Learning -

Machine learning applications have gained popularity over the years and now, incorporated with advanced algorithms has been introduced, deep learning applications, as reports.

It may have evolved quickly but deep learning applications have been getting more attention compared to other machine learning applications. But what sets it apart from a machine learning application?

What Is Deep Learning? 
Deep learning is an artificial intelligence that mimics the workings of a human brain in processing different data, creating patterns and interpreting information that is used for decision making. It is a subfield of machine learning in artificial intelligence. Its networks has the capability to learn, supervised or unsupervised, from data that is either structured or labelled...

Types Of Deep Learning
There are two types of deep learning, supervised and unsupervised. Supervised learning is when you give an AI a set of input and tell it the expected results. Basically, if the output generated is wrong, it will readjust its calculation and will be done repeatedly over the data set until it makes no more mistakes. Unsupervised learning is the process of machine learning using data sets with no structure specified.

Applications of deep learning have been applied to several fields including speech recognition, social network filtering, audio recognition, natural language processing, machine translation, bioinformatics, computer design, computer vision, drug design, medical image analysis, board games programs and material inspection where they need to produce results that are comparable to or superior to human experts.

Let’s go over more details on applications of deep learning and what can deep learning do.

Deep Learning: Training von TensorFlow-Modellen mit JVM-Sprachen


Zwar gibt es mit Frameworks wie DL4J mächtige und umfangreiche Machine-Learning-Lösungen für die JVM, dennoch kann es in der Praxis vorkommen, dass der Einsatz von TensorFlow notwendig wird. Das kann beispielsweise der Fall sein, wenn es einen bestimmten Algorithmus nur in einer TensorFlow-Implementierung gibt und der Portierungsaufwand in ein anderes Framework zu hoch ist. Zwar interagiert man mit TensorFlow über ein Python API, die zugrunde liegende Engine jedoch ist in C++ geschrieben. Mit Hilfe der TensorFlow-Java-Wrapper-Bibliothek kann man deshalb sowohl Training als auch Inferenz von TensorFlow-Modellen aus der JVM heraus betreiben, ohne auf Python angewiesen zu sein.

Why Every Developer Needs to be a Generalist


Developer Generalist vs Specialist

Context, as they say, is king.

The age-old question of exactly what a software developer should focus on learning has been crossing my mind a lot lately. More than ever, our technology is evolving at a furious pace - and the coding world is definitely feeling the pressure. It can be overwhelming to choose where to pay attention and what to dismiss as a passing fad.

So what are you to do? Let’s look at what the next decade has in store for the development world.

Past Predictions

Cory House spoke convincingly on the merits of specializing in one area to become a known and trusted voice. A few years ago, Forbes came out with a high level article proclaiming the opposite. More recently, I stumbled upon this post on Hacker Noon embracing the notion of both specialist and generalist. Which way is a developer supposed to go? The answer to this question can feel largely opinion-based but there are some logical ways to examine it. Let’s get started.

How Do I Choose the Right Tech to Focus On

This is the question for a specialist: how to leap frog from one framework lilypad to another. It’s easy to fall in love with a specific area of coding and become obsessed - I’ve certainly done it. However, it can truly lead to a head-in-the-sand position when the world moves on without you (my condolences to Windows Phone developer friends, for example).

Are You Saying I Should be a Full Stack Developer

Great question! “Generalist” doesn’t always mean “Full Stack”; they aren’t interchangeable. The traditional view of a full stack programmer referred to the web (back end and front end) but there are many different places where code plays a role!

Personally, I’ve coded for voice, IoT, APIs, timer jobs, mobile apps, intranet sites, external websites, ETLs, and the list goes on. Is any of that knowledge evergreen? Some of it! Mostly the ways in which I interacted with my team and product owner - not how I specifically customized a Sharepoint page.

You can carry a cross-section of evergreen knowledge with you as a software engineer. A specific part of those “years of experience” is still applicable to whatever you need to work on now. And that part fits neatly into being a generalist developer.

Why Does Future Tech Require a Generalist Approach

Regardless of what kind of coding you do now, areas of our industry are developing in impossible to ignore ways. Remember when Javascript started taking over the world? If you wanted to do anything in the browser, you had to learn it. Now, not only does it influence the browser - Node.js & Reactive Native have hugely influenced API and mobile app development as well.

Remember when AI was just another fad? With advancements in Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Big Data analytics - it doesn’t look so dismissable anymore.

Even if your main gig is maintaining a legacy code base, you owe it to your future self to know what tools are out there, different than what you use today. This knowledge doesn’t have to be super deep to be powerful, but you do need to know enough about current and future industry techniques to understand where your experience can fit.

What Should All Developers Learn Right Now

I’m glad you asked! There are a few areas in particular that developers really can’t afford to ignore anymore.

1. Security

Naturally, the developer relations team here at Okta cares a lot about this topic! Often, developers are content to make a system ‘just work’ well enough to get out the door for a deadline. The result is company after company coming forward and admitting to their users that their data was not securely stored or collected. This is an area you HAVE to educate yourself on.

Get started with the basics like the OWASP Top 10 security vulnerabilities. The Cheat Sheet Series is another excellent resource for app devs looking to become knowledgeable on security quickly.

Next, make sure you are coding securely from the very beginning, from how you store API keys to the way you deploy your code. This is one area you cannot afford to cut corners. We’ve got lots of blog posts here at Okta to get you up to speed on user security specifically.

2. Machine Learning

Automation will come in many forms and affect all areas of technology. You should have at least a cursory understanding of how your data is fed into various algorithms and the decisions those algorithms can make.

You’ll need to use coding languages like Python and/or R to get started in this area and there are great tutorials on using Jupyter Notebooks to help. However, if you are interested in using machine learning as a service, Microsoft has come a long way with Cognitive Services, which will allow you to use REST APIs to do basic machine learning tasks like image recognition or text analysis. No matter what business you are part of, AI is here to stay in some capacity and you will probably need to interact with it in some way.

3. DevOps/TechOps

Even if you aren’t the keeper of the big red deployment button, it’s crucial for all developers to understand how code gets to production. From mastering pull-request procedures to knowing how your application architecture impacts hosting costs, development work is intrinsically tied to ops work. This is especially true with microservices architecture, which often impact the bottom line.

Reach out to your local DevOps or TechOps meetup or user group and get acquainted with a few people who really know the practice. If that’s not an option in your area, watch a few video courses on the subject. Look into scripting tools for DevOps automation like Terraform or Pulumi. Playing with infrastructure as code can actually be quite enjoyable and a nice change of pace coming from application development. Whether you are the only technical person both building and deploying code, or you are one part of a large department with a separate DevOps team, take the time to become educated on this flow.

What Do You Think Developers Should Learn

Being a specialist can be rewarding, but being a generalist is a necessity. You truly do need a bit of both; just remember not to sacrifice general knowledge in order to focus on your preference. Security, Machine Learning, and Dev/Tech Ops are the top 3 topics I believe have strong merit at the moment, but that list is certainly not exhaustive. Comment below with what you believe every coder needs to add to their ever-growing toolbox!

CIC a unicorn in its own right after wooing £1bn investment to Cambridge


Funding powerhouse Cambridge Innovation Capital has now attracted £1 billion of investment into Cambridge companies and managing partner Andrew Williamson has hired more Silicon Valley talent to ensure the technology cluster maintains its upward trajectory on the global stage.

The £1bn funding landmark has come within the last five years of CIC’s six-year existence but Williamson tells Business Weekly that Cambridge can leverage even more international capital as it builds on AI, deep learning, life science and therapeutic market leads.

CIC’s leading position as a gateway to accessing world-leading innovation was underlined by its performance in the six months to the end of September.

CIC has simultaneously unveiled Vin Lingathoti, a 10-year Valley veteran in the deep technology sector, as a partner to focus on enterprise software. Williamson himself spent 20 years in the US technology heartland while investment director Michael Anstey excelled at The Boston Consulting Group’s office in Toronto and has advised multinational healthcare businesses across North America, Europe, India, and Japan.

Williamson said the team was wired to help steer a new wave of growth for the Cambridge technology sector. He said: “The high quality of opportunities afforded to CIC as a result of our preferential access to IP from the University of Cambridge and our superior network through the Cambridge ecosystem ensures we are the gateway for accessing world-leading innovation.”

In the six months under review, CIC invested £22.8 million into three new and 11 existing portfolio companies; Riverlane, Sense Biodetection and PredictImmune joined CIC’s portfolio.

CMR Surgical closed a £195m Series C to commercialise its next-generation surgical robotic system, clinching unicorn status at the same time.

Gyroscope Therapeutics raised £50.4m of Series B funding round including from CIC and lead investor Syncona for the development of gene therapies and surgical delivery systems for retinal diseases.

Cytora closed a £25m Series B financing round to develop its artificial intelligence-powered insurance technology platform and raised $24m to support product expansion and growth in artificial intelligence decision-making. CIC also figured in prominent deals for Storm Therapeutics, Audio Analytic and Bicycle Therapeutics.

Investing from its £275 million first fund, CIC has injected capital into 29 companies to date. Williamson stressed that international big hitters had invested alongside CIC to accumulate the landmark total. 

Thrilled with what he called a show of confidence in Cambridge, Williamson said the local deep technology market was set for further unprecedented growth because the cluster was so uniquely endowed with IP-rich, transformative businesses.

Cambridge Innovation Capital managing partner, Andrew Williamson

In an exclusive interview with Business Weekly, Williamson said Cambridge gloried in companies creating differentiated technologies. These were prolific, thanks in no small measure to Cambridge University and its exponential success in nurturing and spinning out transformational life science and hi-tech companies.

CIC’s close relationship with the university and follow-up companies is evidenced by the fact that 18 of the 29 businesses in whom it has invested to date are Cambridge University spin-outs.

What is less well known is that the astute and highly forensic CIC team has seen around  1500 investment opportunities to date and engaged closely with around 1000 of those without committing investment. So the portfolio businesses are in an elite minority. The common denominator is that besides having great technology they also have the capability to scale rapidly on a global basis, says Williamson.

This Solomon-esque insight makes CIC more than just another investor and more like an anchor institution within the burgeoning cluster.

Williamson told me: “Not every investment opportunity converts immediately; sometimes we bide our time and look at investments over a number of years: 97 per cent of companies we see we don’t invest in but by engaging with them closely we are able to suggest how they can get themselves investment ready. 

“So in addition to capital, we invest a lot of time building relationships. And the model works: The quality and number of high-potential companies is growing year by year. We have acknowledged the reality that some companies may be exceptionally IP rich but take a little bit longer to develop than ventures based on more traditional business models.”

This is where CIC’s globally experienced team comes in once more. 

Williamson says: “CIC has a lot of PhDS on its teams with deep tech backgrounds. Every business we invest in is a global business and a significant amount of capital we have invested has been globally secured, so we are seen as a safe pair of hands by investing entrepreneurs and funds across the planet.

“A lot of promising deep tech businesses are too small to build into $1bn businesses as things stand which is why it is vital to incorporate a US, Asian and European growth strategy.

“While all our portfolio businesses tend to have started in Cambridge and developed disruptive Science & Technology within the cluster, many have opened up markets on the West Coast of the US or in Asia, for example. 

“We see some ventures that are fantastic in terms of their own specific propositions but because of their business model they remain too small currently to build into a global business. For example, we don’t get involved in consumer related brands - it is just not our model. We and our co-investors require that businesses we back have the ability to scale as rapidly as possible.”

Williamson makes the point that the quality of talent emanating from Cambridge University – principally the calibre of its engineers – is second to none on the worldwide stage.

And the best of our companies – such as CMR Surgical and – have learned how to attract and retain top global talent by offering stimulating work environments and employment packages that encourage good people to stay and grow with the business.

Williamson says: “In the US engineers can move to new roles almost on an annual basis depending on the packages on offer. In Cambridge, engineers are attracted by the quality of the work, they can become shareholders – personally and professionally they are in a very good place here and they tend to stay loyal to a progressive, switched on employer.

“ - which started with commercial operations in San Jose – came to Cambridge because of access to the high quality engineering talent and brainpower available through the university. Their model is sustainable: is already hiring big and filling all their slots. 

“Hiring top talent to sustain scalability on an international basis is clearly a challenge for the cream of our technology companies locally but businesses like, CMR Surgical and provide highly productive workplaces, challenging working environments and great incentives to be part of a business that can transform technology sectors globally.

“The ability of our top life science and technology companies to grow sustainably and consistently recruit top people is possibly the greatest cultural change in the Cambridge science & technology environment in the last 20 years.”

Similarly, while many tech entrepreneurs and investors continue to look to Silicon Valley as an exemplar, Cambridge is no longer a generation behind in terms of maturation compared to the West Coast ecosystem. 

“Our own ecosystem now compares favourably,” says Williamson. He praised the energy and growing global influence of Cambridge Enterprise, the university’s commercialisation arm, and the prodigious input of financial and business building expertise from Cambridge Angels.

Vin Lingathoti, partner, Cambridge Innovation Capital

New executive recruit Vin Lingathoti is a software engineer by training and has held roles across multiple functions including engineering, product management, corporate strategy, private equity and corporate development. 

Most recently he was regional head of Venture Investments and Acquisitions at Cisco Europe, where he led multiple direct and fund-of-fund investments and played a vital role in helping Cisco’s executive leadership team develop its European investment strategy.

He says: “The Cambridge cluster has many similarities to Silicon Valley. The University of Cambridge produces some of the best engineering talent in the world, on a par with Stanford and MIT. 

“It has one of the most active angel and seed investor communities in the UK and is home to prominent deep tech companies such as and Riverlane. Many of the global software giants such as Microsoft and Amazon have opened R & D centres in Cambridge in pursuit of hard-to-acquire engineering talent.

“CIC is uniquely positioned to leverage this Cambridge advantage. We have a close relationship with the University of Cambridge and deep connections to the local startup community. 

“We have an exceptional team of investment professionals with deep domain expertise and global perspective. All of us have lived in multiple countries and held roles in large corporates and startups and understand the challenges faced by early-stage founders. We take a collaborative approach in helping founders navigate through their journey of building world-class companies.”

Stars in the CIC firmament

Riverlane, where CIC led the £3.3m seed round in which Cambridge Enterprise also participated, is a quantum computing software developer transforming the discovery of new materials and drugs. 

Riverlane’s software leverages the capabilities of quantum computers, which operate using the principles of quantum mechanics. In the same way that graphics processing units accelerate machine learning workloads, Riverlane uses quantum computers to accelerate the simulation of quantum systems. 

Riverlane is working with leading academics and companies on critical early use cases for its software, such as developing new battery materials and drug treatments. The company will use its seed funding to demonstrate its technology across a range of quantum computing hardware platforms, focused on early adopters in materials design and drug discovery. It will also expand its team of quantum software researchers and computational physicists.

Sense Biodetection
Sense Biodetection, where CIC co-led the £12.3m Series A funding round alongside Earlybird, and which is developing a portfolio of instrument-free, point-of-care molecular diagnostic tests, is pioneering a new class of diagnostic product. 

Sense Biodetection plans to invest the new funds in the development and manufacture of a range of tests utilising its novel and proprietary rapid molecular amplification technology, targeting in the first instance infectious disease applications such as influenza. 

PredictImmune, in which CIC participated in a £10m Series B round alongside Cambridge Enterprise and other new and existing investors, is developing pioneering prognostic tools for guiding treatment options and improving patient outcomes in immune-mediated diseases. The Series B round cements PredictImmune’s strong financial position, enabling it to build on the successful launch of its first product, PredictSURE IBD™, with a major focus on continued commercial expansion across Europe, the US and other territories.

CMR Surgical
CMR Surgical closed a £195m Series C funding round, Europe’s largest ever private financing round in the medical technology sector, to commercialise its next-generation surgical robotic system, Versius®. 

CIC was an early investor in CMR Surgical having first backed the company’s Series A round in 2016 and has continued to provide financial support and guidance, enabling the realisation of the potential of the Versius® system. CMR Surgical has launched initially in hospitals India with further expansion across the NHS and elsewhere globally expected in short order.

Gyroscope Therapeutics
Gyroscope Therapeutics, in which CIC participated in a £50.4m Series B funding round alongside lead investor Syncona, is developing gene therapies and surgical delivery systems for retinal diseases. With this new round Gyroscope Therapeutics will continue to advance: the clinical development of the company’s investigational gene therapy GT005 for dry age related macular degeneration (dry-AMD), the leading cause of permanent vision impairment for people aged 65 and older.

Cytora closed a £25m Series B financing round to continue developing its artificial intelligence-powered insurance technology platform that enables insurers to underwrite more accurately, reduce frictional costs and achieve profitable growth. 

Cytora’s underwriting platform applies Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing techniques to public and proprietary data sets, including property construction features, company financials and local weather., where CIC participated in the $24m funding round to support product expansion and growth, continues to define the artificial intelligence decision-making market, developing the world’s first technology that can help businesses and organisations make better decisions in processing dynamic, real-time data in complex and uncertain environments. 

Storm Therapeutics
Storm Therapeutics closed a £14m extension to its Series A financing, bringing the total Series A financing to £30m. Storm is a drug discovery company that is tackling disease through modulating RNA modifying enzymes. 

Audio Analytic
Audio Analytic, in which CIC participated in a $12m Series B funding round, has has developed cutting-edge AI sound recognition technology which can be embedded into consumer devices to make them more helpful to people, by understanding and reacting to the contextual information provided by sounds. 

Bicycle Therapeutics
CIC also participated in Bicycle Therapeutics’ Nasdaq IPO to progress the company’s lead candidate, BT1718, through the clinic and continue to advance its preclinical programmes, including toxin drug conjugates and immune modulators to treat cancer and other debilitating diseases. Bicycle is the first company in CIC’s portfolio to conduct an IPO.

All-optical diffractive neural networks process broadband light

Diffractive deep neural network is an optical machine learning framework that blends deep learning with optical diffraction and light-matter interaction to engineer diffractive surfaces that collectively perform optical computation at the speed of light. A diffractive neural network is first designed in a computer using deep learning techniques, followed by the physical fabrication of the designed layers of the neural network using e.g., 3-D printing or lithography. Since the connection between the input and output planes of a diffractive neural network is established via diffraction of light through passive layers, the inference process and the associated optical computation does not consume any power except the light used to illuminate the object of interest.
