Alibaba DAMO Academy Open-Sources a New Generation of Human-Machine Dialogue Model: ESIM.
The Enhanced Sequential Inference Model (ESIM) has won double championships in the International Top Dialogue System Evaluation Competition, which increased the world record for human-machine dialogue accuracy to 94.1%. ESIM model-based applications such as subway voice ticketing machine have been launched in China.

Baidu Open-Sources Apollo 5.0
Apollo 5.0 is an effort to support volume production for Geo-Fenced Autonomous Driving. The car now has 360-degree visibility, along with upgraded perception deep learning model to handle the changing conditions of complex road scenarios, making the car more secure and aware.

XiaoMi AI Lab Open-Sources FairNAS: Rethinking Evaluation Fairness of Weight Sharing Neural Architecture Search
Researchers propose a novel idea called Fair Neural Architecture Search (FairNAS), in which a strict fairness constraint is enforced for fair inheritance and training. In this way, their supernet exhibits nice convergence and very high training accuracy.

Neural Decipherment via Minimum-Cost Flow: from Ugaritic to Linear B
Researchers propose a novel neural approach for automatic decipherment of lost languages. To compensate for the lack of strong supervision signal, their model design is informed by patterns in language change documented in historical linguistics. The model utilizes an expressive sequence-to-sequence model to capture character-level correspondences between cognates.

DLRM: An Advanced, Open Source Deep Learning Recommendation Model
Facebook AI is open-sourcing a state-of-the-art deep learning recommendation model that was implemented using Facebook’s open source PyTorch and Caffe2 platforms. DLRM advances on other models by combining principles from both collaborative filtering and predictive analytics-based approaches.

Benchmarking Model-Based Reinforcement Learning
To facilitate research in Model-based reinforcement learning (MBRL), in this paper researchers gather a wide collection of MBRL algorithms and propose over 18 benchmarking environments specially designed for MBRL. They benchmark these algorithms with unified problem settings, including noisy environments.
