Ensemble learning or model ensembling, is a well-established set of machine learning and statistical techniques for improving predictive performance through the combination of different learning algorithms. The combination of the predictions from different models is generally more accurate than any of the individual models making up the ensemble. Ensemble methods come in different flavours and levels of complexity (for a review see https://arxiv.org/pdf/1106.0257.pdf), but here we focus on combining the predictions of multiple deep learning networks that have been previously trained.
Wow. I can not believe it has actually been four years since I launched our first AI related website.
The progress made this past 12 months has been amazing, and demonstrates the momentum we now have. Our mission remains focused on enabling people to learn more artificial intelligence, making the subject more accessible to everyone. Essentially Supporting the AI Community.
We have for the first four years been dedicated to individuals and this still remains a key part of our audience, however, we are seeing a great need to support businesses. Our Awards was always targeted to supporting AI companies, but now we need more and more traditional businesses wanting to know more about AI.
Over the four years, our user base has demonstrated wonderfully encouraging organic growth. We now have close to 1,000 visitors per day to our websites from every country across the world. 6,000 members are part of our Neurons professional network with 25 groups in 15 countries and this is expanding on a weekly basis, and with nearly 100,000 followers of our various social media channels, and several thousand people subscribing to our various newsletters.
We also have a great network of volunteers, from the chapter leaders of the various meetup groups, to the judges for the for annual achievement awards, and the central team that support me on many other tasks and plans.
This is truly a community for the people, run by the people, and it makes me so proud to be part of it.
I want to thank you all for being part of the community and ask that you share with you friends and colleagues and help us make this the best and biggest AI community.

Our own exhaustive guide on how artificial intelligence will impact the future of work.
Conversational AI and chatbots are now a core part of any business plan. Read our exhaustive guide to learn the meaning and impact of bots on your business.
Today we will highlight signal processing applications using deep learning techniques. Deep Learning developed and evolved for image processing and computer vision applications, but it is now increasingly and successfully used on signal and time series data.
Deep learning for signal data typically requires preprocessing, transformation, and feature extraction steps that image processing applications often do not. While large high-quality image datasets can be created with relatively low-cost cameras, signal sets are harder to obtain and will usually suffer from large variability caused by wideband noise, interference, non-linear trends, jitter, phase distortion, and missing samples.
According to “MyCustomer” reports, 80% of all UK businesses will have a chatbot solution in place by the end of 2020.
The rise of artificial intelligence and the accessibility of disruptive technology in the current marketplace means that any company can take their business to the next level with an AI chatbot.
Unfortunately, brands from most industries are still facing a host of challenges when it comes to getting the full value out of intelligent solutions.
Here, we’re going to cover everything you need to know about the market for modern chatbot tools, and how they can help you to transform customer service.
Every year we bring a group of outstanding data science practitioners to Christ Church, Oxford, for an advanced, intensive course on AI. Among our delegates are the current and past Kaggle champions. Due to the advanced nature of the content, many of our delegates are senior industry leaders and decision makers with a lot of experience, many of them leading data science and AI teams or entire organisations. There are also many senior quants with decades of experience in finance, seeking to reposition towards AI.
The lectures are given by leading academics, including Dr. Paul Billion and Prof. Matthew Dixon, and industry-leading practitioners from finance, insurance, medicine, engineering, and beyond.
Our condensed, intensive, interactive five-day course will take our delegates from a brief overview of the mathematical foundations to current state of research and industry practice in ML/AI.
In addition to covering the depths of the theory, we work through real financial, medical, and engineering datasets, showing how highly nontrivial and non-obvious information can be extracted from them. In finance, this leads to superior alpha and better execution. In medicine, this leads to saving lives and money.

The BICO Artificial Intelligence optimization platform will enhance rider experience and accelerate the growth of Bike Share Schemes in Santiago, Buenos Aires and across Brazil
London, 30th January 2018 – Stage Intelligence the leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform provider for Mobility and Logistics, has been selected by Tembici, the leader in bike sharing in Latin America, to deploy its BICO AI optimization platform in cities across the region. AI will be used to automate and accelerate Tembici’s operations creating efficiencies across their Bike Share Schemes as well as reducing their impact on the environment.
The initial phase of the deployment will cover cities in Brazil including Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Recife, Salvador, Port Alegre and Vila Velha. In phase two, the BICO AI optimization platform will be rolled out in Santiago, Chile, and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Altogether, Tembici will use BICO to optimise rider experience and increase the usability of over 16,000 bikes.
“Tembici is passionate about the transformation in Bike Share Schemes and recognises the potential of AI to benefit both its operations and riders across Latin America. After a successful trial, we are extremely proud to be deploying in eight new cities and using our platform to support the growth of Bike Share Schemes across the continent,” said Tom Nutley, CEO at Stage Intelligence. “Stage believe that a smarter approach to transport results in sustainable Bike Share Schemes but also healthy and happier riders and communities. We look forward to growing our partnership with Tembici across Latin America and enabling its success in new markets.”
Tembici is the largest Bike Share company in Latin America. Across its schemes, it was looking for a way to ensure usability for riders while creating new cost-efficiencies. Usability of a Bike Share Scheme is about ensuring that bikes and docking stations are available when and where they are needed most. When riders are able to access bikes or docks, they are likely to make Bike Share part of their daily routine. Reliability is an integral part of any mobility operation and ensuring access to bikes or docks enables both ridership and revenue growth in schemes.
“The BICO AI optimization platform delivers a benefit to our operations that enables us to keep providing an exceptional service to riders, and in the same time save costs. We have seen the power of the platform in our trials with Stage Intelligence and we believe BICO has tremendous potential for our schemes,” said Mauricio, COO at Tembici. “BICO has been proven to reduce the number of trucks required for redistribution which reduces CO2 emissions while also getting more people on bikes and enjoying cycling in our cities. It is a win-win for citizens and urban areas.”
Stage Intelligence has deployed its BICO AI optimization platform in Bike Share Schemes in major cities including Paris, Helsinki, Chicago and Guadalajara, Mexico. It has had success in reducing the number of trucks needed to redistribute bikes and over the last 12 months has reduced CO2 emissions in its Bike Share Schemes by 10 metric tonnes. Stage Intelligence has also seen the number of rides per bike per day increase by 5.5 in its top performing scheme. This means more people are using the scheme and using it consistently while operators benefit from increased return on investment per bike.
