Siraj Raval built a demo app called SmartSneaks that lets a user convert a song or image into a generated shoe design.

This is an example of how AI can be used to transform retail by giving users a more personalized experience. The tools he used to build this are the Flutter framework for mobile development and the Flask framework for web development. There are 3 learning objectives in this video including how to build a deep learning API for your mobile app, how to generate images with a generative adversarial network, and how to calculate image similarity with OpenCV.

In this video, Siraj Raval explores Automatic Machine Learning or “AutoML,” a field of Artificial Intelligence that’s gaining a lot of ground of late. The idea is that doing any kind of task related to machine learning involves a whole lot of steps like cleaning a dataset, choosing a model, deciding what the right configurations of that model should be, deciding what the most relevant features are etc.

From the video description:

The goal of AutoML is to automate all of that up to a point where all a data scientist would need to do is tell a machine to perform some task using a dataset and wait for it to learn how by itself. In this episode, i’m going to explain several popular AutoML techniques, then compare top AutoML frameworks like AutoKeras, Auto Sklearn, h20, Ludwig, etc. to help you decide which one will be the best for your needs.

On the second episode of Siraj Raval’s educational podcast, he interviews the CEO of the largest cryptocurrency company in the world, Brian Armstrong.

From the video description:

I knew Brian years ago when Coinbase was a relatively humble startup and it’s been mind blowing to see how far they’ve come in such a short period of time, managing the equivalent of billions of dollars in wealth in cryptocurrency. I admire Brian because he wakes up everyday determined to solve the ‘meta-problem’ of financial freedom using cryptocurrency, which he believes can indirectly alleviate poverty, increase entrepreneurship, and help reduce corruption in governments around the world. The President of the USA tweeted about Bitcoin and Facebook released it’s “Libra” cryptocurrency, so it’s an extremely exciting time in the space. I also ask him about his most ambitious ideas regarding the future of payments, and was pleasantly shocked by his answers.

Siraj Raval has designed a free curriculum to help anyone learn Computer Vision in the most efficient way possible.

My curriculum starts off with low level vision techniques and progressively increases in difficulty until we get to high level analysis techniques i.e deep learning. Don’t worry if you’ve never coded before, i’ve included links to help you learn Python as well. Now is the time to build computer vision solutions, the world needs these menial tasks automated to help liberate humans from drudgery. The tools needed are python, OpenCV, and Tensorflow, all of which have their place and I’ll explain all the details of how it fits together in this video. Enjoy!

With BitCoin prices on the rise again, the hype machine has turned its focus back onto the technology. In a few days, expect the rally to retreat again and pundits to say something along the lines of “Blockchain has no practical use.” They are, of course, wrong and Siraj Raval explains (and demontrates!) why in this video.

Healthpass is a secure cloud store for all your health records! This serves patients by giving them one place to store and view all of their health data across all providers globally. It serves providers by ensuring that health records are stored securely via a blockchain and allows them to see a patients previous health history easily. To build this app I used Node.js, Firebase, Bitcoin’s Blockchain, Paypal, Stripe, Tesserect.js, BioBERT, and a health data visualization library called hFigures. The reason I built this app is to give you an idea on how a “bitcoin” startup would look practically, programmatically, and visually. I hope this inspires you to build something cool and even managed to fit a rap about SHA-256 into it. Enjoy!

Siraj Raval has built and open sourced an app called Dr Source, your personal medical question answering service! It uses a model called BioBERT trained on over 700K Q&As from PubMed, HealthTap, and other health related websites.

He used Flutter to build an app around it and presents it to the world as a more thought out idea. There are millions of people in this world without access to healthcare, and while this app isn’t perfect, an automated diagnosis is better than no diagnosis.
