      Debugging machine learning

      I've been thinking, mostly in the context of teaching, about how to specifically teach debugging of machine learning. Personally I find it very helpful to break things down in terms of the usual error terms: Bayes error (how much error is there in the best possible classifier), approximation error (how much do you pay for restricting to some hypothesis class), estimation error (how much do you pay because you only have finite samples), optimization error (how much do you pay because you didn't find a global optimum to your optimization problem). I've generally found that trying to ...

    2. Annotations for electronic content

      Embodiments are described for capturing, displaying, and navigating annotations in an electronic document. In some embodiments, a selection of an object in the electronic document is received, and an annotation associated with the selected object is received. The annotation is maintained in a list of annotations. The annotation can also be displayed. In some embodiments, a selection of the annotation is received and in response to the selection of the annotation being received, a user may be navigated to a location of the selected object in the electronic document.

    4. Associating one or more terms in a message trail with a task entry

      Methods and apparatus related to determining an association between a message trail and a task entry of a user and associating an n-gram with the task entry, wherein the n-gram is based on one or more messages of the message trail. A similarity score between the n-gram and one or more aspects of the associated task entry may be determined. The similarity score may be utilized, for example, to determine when to associate the n-gram with the task entry and/or how to utilize the associated n-gram with the task entry.

    6. Conforming data structure instances to schema versions

      In a method for managing versions of a schema, a processor receives a first version of a schema. A processor generates an annotated version of the first version of the schema, wherein one or more fields of the annotated version of the first version of the schema each correspond to a distinct identifier. A processor receives a first instance conforming to the first version of the schema. A processor identifies one or more values of the first instance, wherein each value of the one or more values corresponds to a field of the one or more fields. A processor assigns ...

    7. Information management systems and methods

      Management of information includes analyzing an inquiry with a language processor, and generating a keyword associated with the inquiry based on the analysis. Further, it may be determined whether an inquiry with the generated keyword previously has been received and stored in a memory and, when it is determined that such an inquiry previously has been received, the inquiry is retrieved from the memory. A recipient of the inquiry is assigned based on an inputted recipient or the keyword, and a recipient of an answer to the inquiry is designated. The inquiry is transmitted to the assigned recipient of the ...

    8. Providing crowdsourced answers to information needs presented by search engine and social networking application users

      Technologies pertaining to generating crowd-sourced answers are described herein. A text string is received, and the text string is parsed to determine if the text string represents an information need that is desirably answered by a collective of crowd workers. When it is determined that the information need is desirably answered by the collective of crowd workers, a query or question that represents the information need is provided to a first plurality of crowd workers, who generate proposed answers for the information need. The proposed answers are provided to a second plurality of crowd workers, who vote on the proposed ...

    9. Pure convolutional neural network localization

      An approach is provided in which a knowledge manager processes an image using a convolutional neural network. The knowledge manager generates a pixel-level heat map of the image that includes multiple decision points corresponding to multiple pixels of the image. The knowledge manager analyzes the pixel-level heat map and detects sets of decision points that correspond to target objects. In turn, the knowledge manager marks regions of the heat map corresponding to the detected sets of per-pixel decision points, each of the regions indicating a location of the target objects.
