the application of deep learning and planning techniques, with the aim of constructing generalized plans capable of solving multiple problem instances. We construct a Deep Neural Network that, given an abstract problem state, predicts both (i) the best action to be taken from that state and (ii) the generalized “role” of the object being manipulated. The neural network was tested on two classical planning domains: the blocks world domain and the logistic domain. Results indicate that neural networks are capable of making such
predictions with high accuracy, indicating a promising new framework for approaching generalized planning problems.
This thesis attempts to explain Everettian quantum mechanics from the ground up, such that those with little to no experience in quantum physics can understand it. First, we introduce the history of quantum theory, and some concepts that make up the framework of quantum physics. Through these concepts, we reveal why interpretations are necessary to map the quantum world onto our classical world. We then introduce the Copenhagen interpretation, and how many-worlds differs from it. From there, we dive into the concepts of entanglement and decoherence, explaining how worlds branch in an Everettian universe, and how an Everettian universe can appear as our classical observed world. From there, we attempt to answer common questions about many-worlds and discuss whether there are philosophical ramifications to believing such a theory. Finally, we look at whether the many-worlds interpretation can be proven, and why one might choose to believe it.
Breast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer worldwide. Early detection and diagnosis are crucial for improving the chances of successful treatment and survival. In this thesis, many different machine learning algorithms were evaluated and compared to predict breast cancer malignancy from diagnostic features extracted from digitized images of breast tissue samples, called fine-needle aspirates. Breast cancer diagnosis typically involves a combination of mammography, ultrasound, and biopsy. However, machine learning algorithms can assist in the detection and diagnosis of breast cancer by analyzing large amounts of data and identifying patterns that may not be discernible to the human eye. By using these algorithms, healthcare professionals can potentially detect breast cancer at an earlier stage, leading to more effective treatment and better patient outcomes. The results showed that the gradient boosting classifier performed the best, achieving an accuracy of 96% on the test set. This indicates that this algorithm can be a useful tool for healthcare professionals in the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer, potentially leading to improved patient outcomes.
This research paper explores the effects of data variance on the quality of Artificial Intelligence image generation models and the impact on a viewer's perception of the generated images. The study examines how the quality and accuracy of the images produced by these models are influenced by factors such as size, labeling, and format of the training data. The findings suggest that reducing the training dataset size can lead to a decrease in image coherence, indicating that AI models get worse as the training dataset gets smaller. Moreover, the study makes surprising discoveries regarding AI image generation models that are trained on highly varied datasets. In addition, the study involves a survey in which people were asked to rate the subjective realism of the generated images on a scale ranging from 1 to 5 as well as sorting the images into their respective classes. The findings of this study emphasize the importance of considering dataset variance and size as a critical aspect of improving image generation models as well as the implications of using AI technology in the future.
algorithms for recommending new music to users. However, at the
core of their recommendations is the collaborative filtering algorithm,
which recommends music based on what other people with similar
tastes have listened to . While this can produce highly relevant
content recommendations, it tends to promote only popular content
. The popularity bias inherent in collaborative-filtering based
systems can overlook music that fits a user’s taste, simply because
nobody else is listening to it. One possible solution to this problem is
to recommend music based on features of the music itself, and
recommend songs which have similar features. Here, a method for
extracting high-level features representing the mood of a song is
presented, with the aim of tailoring music recommendations to an
individual's mood, and providing music recommendations with
diversity in popularity.
