GPT Implications for Coding

The AI evolution has implications for programming and programmer jobs. GPT usage allows for quicker product releases and a focus on user requirements. However, low-coding jobs could be delegated to AI, new skills for AI-assisted programming be required or access to sophisticated models only available to some. The new coding age is upon us. In this blog post, I highlight the opportunities and challenges of AI-assisted code generation and share my experiences using chatGPT.

The Random Forest Performed the best!

Python coding with chatGPT

In this post, I did some Python coding with chatGPT. We have coded a neuron, a simple neural network, and learned how to train it. I am pleased with the result. I think that chatGPT has excellent potential for CS students and all coders that want to update their skills effectively. Is it an end of the StackOverflow? We cannot see the feature. However, we still need social interaction with humans, and AI cannot substitute human communication.

Happy New Year!

My best wishes for 2023! I wish you happiness, health, and excellent luck in the New Year! Let your best wishes come true, and your professional goals are achieved with success!

TensorFlow: Transfer Learning (Feature Extraction) in Image Classification

Image classification is a complex task. However, we can approach the problem while reusing state-of-the-art pre-trained models. Using previously learned patterns from other models is named "Transfer Learning." This way, we can efficiently apply well-tested models, potentially leading to excellent performance.

Artificial Neural Networks

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are the cornerstone of Deep Learning algorithms. The name and the architecture are adopted from the human brain's neural network. ANNs are designed to simulate human reasoning based on how neurons communicate. ANNs contain a set of artificial neurons connected.

Deep Learning vs Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science. AI provides methods and algorithms to mimic human intelligence, reasoning, and decision-making and provide insights, which businesses could use in research or industry to build new exciting and innovative products or services. Machine Learning (ML) is a subset of AI with algorithms that learn from data. In this post, we sort out the differences between AI and ML.
