In an unprecedented “call for collaboration,” a group of 22 respected AI experts that includes Andrew Ng, Yoshua Bengio, and Demis Hassabis have published a paper exploring how machine learning (ML) could help deal with climate change by reducing greenhouse gases (GHG).
Many cat owners have awoken to the sound of frenzied scrambling across the floor as their furry feline friend chases the mouse it snuck into the house in the middle of the night. Or looked up to find their pet staring down with those adorable big round eyes at the dead little fledgling it has deposited beside your pillow as a “present.“
Alphabet’s autonomous driving unit Waymo surprised many by releasing a new high-quality multimodal sensor dataset for autonomous driving. The *Waymo Open Dataset *was introduced at top AI conference Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) 2019 in Long Beach, California.
The more than 2,000 participants from over 120 countries were here for the *AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva 2019* — four days of presentations and discussions on how to make the world a better place for children to grow up in by leveraging the emerging power of machine learning.
In a joint effort with the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and Alphabet (Google) X, Google AI researchers recently announced a new open source library, TensorNetwork, which can greatly improve the efficiency of tensor calculations for tensor network algorithms.
A group of researchers from Tencent Technology, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Nankai University recently combined two commonly used techniques — Batch Normalization (BatchNorm) and Dropout — into an Independent Component (IC) layer inserted before each weight layer to make inputs more independent*.
DeepMind is a trailblazer in the trending computer vs humans gaming research space. Following milestone victories against human pros on the board game Go and video game StarCraft II, the Google-owned research company has now pitted their new AI system against humans in the first-person shooter multiplayer video game Quake III Arena.
Might there be a more efficient approach to scaling up CNNs to improve accuracy? Researchers from Google AI say “yes” and have proposed a new model scaling method in their ICML 2019 paper EfficientNet: Rethinking Model Scaling for Convolutional Neural Networks.
Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) has introduced a new reinforcement learning (RL) method, Stochastic Optimal Control with Latent Representations (SOLAR), which can help robots quickly learn tasks such as stacking blocks or pushing objects from visual inputs.
In a new statement issued late Sunday, the world’s largest technical professional organization the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) announced it is lifting restrictions it had imposed scarcely a week ago on editorial and peer reviews involving employees of Chinese tech communication giant Huawei.
By 2050 almost one-in-four humans will be aged 60 years and older, double today’s share. Moreover, the number of people aged 80 years and older will quadruple. This demographic shift is opening new vistas for AI technologies in elders’ daily healthcare management, and as a useful tool for healthcare professionals and institutions treating seniors.
The two-day RE•WORK Deep Learning Summit Boston 2019 gathered more than 60 speakers from top AI labs such as MIT CSAIL, Uber AI Labs, Adobe Research and other experts from the AI healthcare industry who provided high-level deep learning technical discussions and industry application insights.
Earlier this month restored images of iconic Hong Kong film stars like Bridget Lin and Joey Wong began circulating on Chinese social media. An AI-enabled touch-up process revealed distinct facial contours and features in old and fuzzy or low-res photos, revisiting the comely visages that made the public fall in love with these ’90s stars.
The world’s biggest technical professional organization, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) issued a statement on May 22 that forbids its colleagues from Huawei and 68 of its affiliates from reviewing or accessing non-public papers submitted by other persons for publications.
