Welcome to /r/artificial

/r/artificial is the largest subreddit dedicated to all issues related to Artificial Intelligence or AI. What does AI mean? Find out here!


All submissions are moderated through “collaborative filtering” approach. To help better align content with the expectations of the audience and improve the quality of the subreddit, submissions that receive overall negative feedback may be removed.

Submissions should generally be about Artificial Intelligence and its applications. If you think your submission could be of interest to the community, feel free to post it.

Submission’s title should clearly indicate what the submission is about.

Try to avoid posting submissions that seem like a self-advertisement. Those usually contain clickbaity titles, speculations or overstatements.

If you want to advertise on /r/artificial, the best way is by doing an IAMA.

Consider doing a little research before asking a question to add more context. Providing more context usually leads to more insightful discussions.

Getting started with Artificial Intelligence

The topic of Artificial Intelligence is very broad and there are many good learning resources available on the internet and in print.

However, to get started with Artificial Intelligence it’s enough to understand the following two books:

Hands-On Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow: Concepts, Tools, and Techniques to Build Intelligent Systems

Deep Learning (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series)

If you prefer a lecture/tutorial style learning, then the best resource is:

Hvass Laboratories Tensorflow Playlist

For Reinforcement Learning, please refer to the following lectures:

Joelle Pineau – Introduction to Reinforcement Learning

Pieter Abbeel – Deep Reinforcement Learning

Interested in doing an IAMA?

We offer an opportunity for companies and individuals working on interesting problems in AI to introduce their work to the community through the IAMA. Please contact /u/dejormo for more information.

We would love to hear from you!

Loss and accuracy

I made a RNN and gave it the genome of E.coli bacteria for training. This means it has to choose from A,T,G or C and form a sequence to create a new genome. After 100000 iterations the loss is about 30. Is is 30 a good value? Is it possible to make it better?
