Why Playing Hide-and-Seek Could Lead AI to Humanlike Intelligence
A new paper from San Francisco-based OpenAI proposes that training models in the children’s game of hide-and-seek and pitting them against each other in tens of millions of contests results in the models automatically developing humanlike behaviors that increase their intelligence and improve subsequent performance.

Unsupervised Object Discovery via Capsule Decoders
Researchers describe an unsupervised version of capsule networks, in which a neural encoder, which looks at all of the parts, is used to infer the presence and poses of object capsules. The encoder is trained by backpropagating through a decoder, which predicts the pose of each already discovered part using a mixture of pose predictions.
