Posit AI Weblog: Introducing: The RStudio AI Weblog

Why the brand new title, RStudio AI Weblog? There’s a easy purpose. The
earlier title, “TensorFlow for R Weblog”, was an excellent match for the content material
we lined to date: technical or utilized features of performing deep
studying with TensorFlow and Keras. But, our workforce (the Multiverse Group) is just not
working completely in these areas; as a substitute, enabling distributed computing from
R (sparklyr), integrating automated
machine studying workflows (mlflow), and
optimizing information ingestion (pins) are
substantial features of what we do. We want to have a platform we will use
to let you know about our work in these areas as nicely. Moreover, concerning the
hitherto dominant matter on this weblog, deep studying, we would additionally wish to
mirror about it in a much less technical method, focussing on impacts on
society, ethics, and even “simply” epistemic questions.

Consequently, we would have liked a brand new title, however why “AI”? Possibly “information science” would work
as nicely – nonetheless, the science in information science brings up connotations of ritual and
theoretic ambitions which we’d reasonably keep away from. As a substitute, AI gave the impression to be a extra rigorous
definition, understood as outlined in an article by Michael
. Jordan envisions AI as a
new engineering self-discipline that builds on present information about inference,
optimization, computation, and information processing the best way that chemical engineering
and civil engineering constructed upon chemistry and physics, respectively.
Supplementing these constructing blocks (from arithmetic, statistics, pc
science), the aim of this new self-discipline is to incorporate steering from the social sciences
and the humanities.

By the best way, as of this writing, the Multiverse Group consists of Daniel
, Sigrid
, Yitao
, and Javier
Yow will discover us on Twitter beneath the
tag, or go by our new mlverse
YouTube. Thanks to your help!
