Tools for data science


Here is a catalog of what AI and Machine Learning algorithms and Modules offered by Microsoft Azure, Amazon, Google, SAS, MatLab, etc.

These Artificial Intelligence (AI) services make use of algorithms:

Microsoft created a cute interactive museum to view their use cases in a non-technical way at http://azuremlsimpleds.azurewebsites.net/simpleds/ along with PDF: Microsoft’s long infographic about algorithms

From the A-Z List of Machine Learning Studio Modules, lists basic database and UI features such as forms, which means it’s building standard computing functions on top of AI capabilities.

https://translate.google.com and the Google Translate API has been working on translating websites since the 90’s. In 2017 Google made a breakthrough

Microsoft’s Translator Speech

Computer Vision

Open-source OpenCV (Computer Vision) was an early entrant and is still used today by many because it is written in C and runs quite efficiently.

Microsoft’s Computer Vision

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/custom-vision-service/getting-started-build-a-classifier Hands-on guide: build a classifier with Custom Vision

Microsoft’s “Face”

  • https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/z/ColorPalettefromImage

  • Google Cloud Vision API

  • https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/opencv/FaceDetection then https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/opencv/CensorFace

  • https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/ocr/RecognizeCharacters OCR

Some of these make use of OpenCV (CV = Computer Vision).

Voice Recognition

Microsoft’s Web App Bot

NLP Sentiment Analysis

Analyze text for positive or negative sentiment (opinion), based on a training database of potential word meanings, which involved Natural Language Processing:

  • https://algorithmia.com/algorithms/nlp/SentimentAnalysis

  • IBM’s algorithm

Andrew W. Trask, PhD student at University of Oxford Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing authored Grokking Deep Learning.

Use Bag of words and Word2vec transform words into vectors. Use TFLearn, a Python library for quickly building networks.

Document (article) Search

Google made it’s fortune on offering search services.

Microsoft’s Bing Search

TF-IDF = Term Frequency - Inverse Document Frequency emphasizes important words (called a vector) which appear rarely in the corpus searched (rare globally). which appear frequently in document (common locally) Term frequency is measured by word count (how many occurances of each word).

The IDF to downweight words is the log of #docs divided by 1 + #docs using given word.

Cosine similarity normalizes vectors so small angle thetas identify similarity.

Normalizing makes the comparison invariant to the number of words. The common compromise is to cap maximum word count.
