Reinforcement Learning: Balancing Exploration and Exploitation
In this contributed article, Anthony Chong, CEO/Co-Founder of IKASI, discusses the three types of machine learning approaches, the benefits and requirements of each, and offer examples of how organizations are applying these tactics to address real world business challenges.
Why Reinforcement Learning Will Save Generative AI
In this contributed article, Kim Stagg, VP of Product for Appen, knows the only way to achieve functional AI models is to use high-quality data in every stage of deployment. As businesses look for pathways to adoption, there must be a significant focus on removing bottlenecks for data quality in …
d-Matrix Unlocks New Potential with Reinforcement Learning based Compiler for at Scale Digital In-Memory Compute Platforms
d-Matrix, a leader in high-efficiency AI-compute and inference, announced a collaboration with Microsoft using its low-code reinforcement learning (RL) platform, Project Bonsai, to enable an AI-trained compiler for d-Matrix’s unique digital in memory compute (DIMC) products. The user-friendly Project Bonsai platform accelerates time to value, with a product-ready solution that …
AI Under the Hood: Mixing Things Up – Optimizing Fluid Mixing with Machine Learning
Fluid mixing is an important part of several industrial processes and chemical reactions. However, the process often relies on trial-and-error-based experiments instead of mathematical optimization. While turbulent mixing is effective, it cannot always be sustained and can damage the materials involved. To address this issue, researchers from Japan (Tokyo University …
Opposing schools of thought imagine and build contrary futures for AI
While many people think of abstract ideas regarding artificial general intelligence (AGI), this technology has arrived at an important crossroads today. In fact, scientists stunned by its incredible potential agree to disagree on how the future of AGI should be shaped. Disagreements about the future of technologies, especially the ones
An Intuitive Introduction to Reinforcement learning
Reinforcement learning (RL) is a trial and error form of learning in which an agent acting in a given environment learns to take optimal actions at every state it encounters in such an environment with the ultimate goal to increase/maximize a numerical reward function.
Evaluating Ray: Distributed Python for Massive Scalability
Dean Wampler provides a distilled overview of Ray, an open source system for scaling Python systems from single machines to large clusters. If you are interested in additional insights, register for the upcoming Ray Summit. Introduction This post is for people making technology decisions, by which I mean data science …

In doing so, I’ll demonstrate the application of ML techniques to the manufacturing industry and the role of the Machine Learning Product Manager.Machine learning …
Meta-Reinforcement Learning
The general trend in machine learning research is to stop fine-tuning models, and instead use a meta-learning algorithm that automatically finds the best architecture and hyperparameters. What about meta-reinforcement learning (meta-RL)? Meta-RL is just meta-learning applied to RL.
