On Extractive and Abstractive Neural Document Summarization with Transformer Language Models
“We present a method to produce abstractive summaries of long documents that exceed several thousand words via neural abstractive summarization. We perform a simple extractive step before generating a summary, which is then used to condition the transformer language model on relevant information before being tasked with generating a summary.” Note: The abstract above was generated by one of the models presented in this paper.

DeepPrivacy: A Generative Adversarial Network for Face Anonymization
Researchers propose a novel generator architecture to anonymize faces, which ensures 100% removal of privacy-sensitive information in the original face. They also provide the FDF dataset, including 1.47M faces with a tight bounding box and keypoint annotation for each face.

Batch Normalization: Accelerating Deep Network Training by Reducing Internal Covariate Shift
Using an ensemble of batch-normalized networks, researchers improve upon the best published result on ImageNet classification: reaching 4.9% top-5 validation error (and 4.8% test error), exceeding the accuracy of human raters.
