In this short tutorial, we’ll be looking at implementing a simple Deep Learning classification algorithm to classify cats and dogs, and afterwards, export the model, which can then be deployed on a server to be used in a mobile applications or a web app. The dataset that will be used is a open source dataset containing training and validation pictures of cats and dogs.

Artificial Intelligence, as defined by Wikipedia, refers to intelligence demonstrated by machines, unlike the natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals, which involves consciousness and emotionality. The term AI in technical terms, often encompasses two main fields: Machine Learning and Deep Learning. These two fields involve working with Mathematical algorithms that eventually enable computers to think and make decisions in an intelligent manner.

Even though AI is still in its early stages of development, its applications in human lives are endless. Day in day out, we use AI systems to perform tasks, sometimes not even knowing we are. Some medical…

With so many companies and businesses adopting technological tools to help run their services, it is important that they are able to tell which customer is on the verge of being lost to another competitor. Customer churn is the percentage of customers that stopped using a company’s product or service during a certain time frame.

This short piece seeks to introduce how a Machine Learning model can be trained with previous data on parameters that affect the churn of customers, and from getting information on predictions made by the model, measures can then be put in place to retain a…

Africa as a whole, has so much great potential in becoming the leading continent in the world, in terms of development and standards of living. Given our resources and capabilities, this is an undeniable fact. Many great stories of the African people, both home and abroad, still live to be told; their great ideas and innovations have helped reshape the world we know into a much more convenient place for us to live in.

Africa however, is suffering to get back on its feet; to be the great continent it once was, after a long period of colonization. Continents like…
