IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, November 15, 2017: Artificial Intelligence with Search-Based Function Computation Model

November 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

IEEE CTCN Monthly Meeting, Wednesday, November 15, 2017: “Artificial Intelligence with Search-Based Function Computation Model”

Speaker: Chin-Liang Chang

Biography: CL Chang received his PhD in 1967 from University of California, Berkeley. He was with National Institutes of Health, IBM San Jose Research Lab, and Lockheed Software Center. He now has his own company, Nicesoft Corporation. His fields are AI, Relational Databases, and Software Engineering. He has published several books and about 50 papers. He has engaged in many discussions in the Berkeley Initiative in Soft Computing (BISC) and North America Taiwanese Engineering and Science Association (NATEA).

Abstract: We should consider search-based function computation model, not just expression-based function computation model, because if we use the search-based function computation model, then “parallel computation” can be applied. If you use the expression-based function computation model, then computations are sequential as specified in a programming language. I call the search-based function computation model “Fuzzy Similarity for Function Computation Model”, which is basically a table lookup and a nearest neighbor classifier approach. For example, before we had a computer, we used “sin(x)” table. If we are given 66 degrees, we look up the table to find the result.

 
To find a “best fuzzy similar” vector, I use “parallel reduction method” by using 5000 cores in a GPU. If you have 20 million samples, divide them by 5000, each core just need to search 4000 samples. This is manageable even we need to use procedural loops.
 
In this talk, I’ll first give a demo of OpenCL C++. Then, I’ll describe “Fuzzy Similarity for Function Computation Model”. Finally, I’ll give another demo on flower image recognition.
