PyTorch 1.4 Released, Domain Libraries Updated
The 1.4 release of PyTorch adds new capabilities, including the ability to do fine grain build level customization for PyTorch Mobile, and new experimental features including support for model parallel training and Java language bindings.
ImagineNet: Restyling Apps Using Neural Style Transfer
Researchers propose a neural solution by adding a new loss term to the original formulation, which minimizes the squared error in the uncentered cross-covariance of features from different levels in a CNN between the style and output images.
Using Neural Networks to Solve Advanced Mathematics Equations
Facebook AI has built the first AI system that can solve advanced mathematics equations using symbolic reasoning. Researchers leverage proven techniques in neural machine translation (NMT), training models to essentially translate problems into solutions.
Revealing Neural Network Bias to Non-Experts Through Interactive Counterfactual Examples
Researchers present a preliminary design for an interactive visualization tool, CEB, to reveal biases in a commonly used AI method, Neural Networks (NN). CEB combines counterfactual examples and abstraction of an NN decision process to empower non-experts to detect bias.
