A Google Brain Program Is Learning How to Program
In a new paper, Google Brain researchers propose using neural networks to model human source code editing. Effectively this means treating code editing as a sequence and having a machine learn how to “write code” like in a natural language model — by analysing a short paragraph of editing, the model can extract intent and leverage that to generate subsequent edits.

Stanford Machine Learning Group Released The MRNet Dataset of 1000+ Annotated Knee MRIs
The MRNet dataset consists of 1,370 knee MRI exams performed at Stanford University Medical Center. The dataset contains 1,104 (80.6%) abnormal exams, with 319 (23.3%) ACL tears and 508 (37.1%) meniscal tears; labels were obtained through manual extraction from clinical reports.

Robots That Learn to Use Improvised Tools

Taking inspiration from how animals learn, the research team designed an algorithm that allows robots to learn tool-use skills through a similar paradigm of imitation and interaction. In particular, they show that, with a mix of demonstration data and unsupervised experience, a robot can use novel objects as tools and even improvise tools in the absence of traditional ones.

Cross-Lingual Transfer Learning for Bootstrapping AI Systems Reduces New-Language Data Requirements
In a paper presenting at this year’s International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, Alexa team reports using cross-lingual transfer learning (a sub-category of transfer learning) to bring existing functions to a new language. Alexa is currently available in English, German, Japanese, French, Spanish, Italian, and an additional six variants of those languages.
