“AI is the best bot to keep people safe on our platforms,” Facebook Director of Artificial Intelligence Manohar Paluri told the F8 audience, adding that an effective way to achieve that goal is enabling Facebook’s AI system to “understand content and work effectively with less labeled training data.”
NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference (GTC) attracted some 9,000 developers, buyers and innovators to San Jose, California this week. CEO and Co-Founder Jensen Huang’s two-and-a-half hour keynote speech fused GPU-based innovations in domains ranging from graphic design to autonomous driving.
A paper recently accepted for ICLR 2019 challenges this with a novel optimizer — AdaBound — that authors say can train machine learning models “as fast as Adam and as good as SGD.” Basically, AdaBound is an Adam variant that employs dynamic bounds on learning rates to achieve a gradual and smooth transition to SGD.
The Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) is one of the world’s top computer vision (CV) conferences. CVPR 2019 runs June 15 through June 21 in Long Beach, California, and the list of accepted papers for the prestigious gathering has now been released.
The Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) announced this week they have accepted 1300 research papers for CVPR 2019, which will be held June 16 – 20 in Long Beach, California. This year’s submission and acceptance totals both set records for the world’s premier computer vision conference, which had never before accepted more than 1000 papers.
Last December some 9,000 attendees packed a single venue in Montreal for a week-long academic conference. NeurIPS was completely sold out, the latest indication of just how hot AI is nowadays. As AI and machine learning continue to ignite discussion across a wide variety of disciplines, novel approaches to the tech are also garnering interest.
At last week’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2019) in Las Vegas, Synced visited pet tech booths to explore the current state and future directions of AI powered tech and smart offerings aimed at our furry companions. We found smart pet technologies can generally be divided into six categories: Tracking, Monitoring, Playing, Feeding, Toilets, and Bathing.

The world’s largest and most exciting technology show, CES officially kicks off this morning in Las Vegas, USA. With an abundance of products to present, tech giants such as Nvidia, Qualcomm, Samsung, Intel started revving up their engines two days ago, hosting press conferences to showcase their “New Year’s Resolutions.”
The 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) is in full swing in Montréal. According to a booklet distributed to attendees, both NeurIPS 2019 and 2020 will take place in Vancouver, making Canada the host country three years in a row. NIPS/NeurIPS has already been held in Montreal and Vancouver a combined 13 times since the world’s leading AI conference left its Denver base in 2001.
The 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NeurIPS) kicked off today in Montréal. In their opening remarks this afternoon the NeurIPS organizing committee announced the conference’s major best paper selections and other awards. Four submissions shared top honors in the best paper category.
Deep Learning has become an essential toolbox which is used in a wide variety of applications, research labs, industries, etc. In this tutorial given at NIPS 2017, the speakers provide a set of guidelines which will help newcomers to the field understand the most recent and advanced models and their application to diverse data modalities.
Artificial general intelligence (AGI) is the long-range, human-intelligence-level target of contemporary AI researchers worldwide. It’s believed AGI has the potential to meet basic human needs globally, end poverty, cure diseases, extend life, and even mitigate climate change. In short, AGI is the tech that could not only save the world, but build a utopia.
In April the NIPS organizing committee announced that it was considering a name change and began collecting opinions and suggestions from the AI research community. Yesterday, the final results of the poll were disclosed along with the announcement that there would be no name change.
Peer review is an essential process that subjects new research to the scrutiny of other experts in the same field. Today’s top Machine Learning (ML) conferences are heavily reliant on peer review as it allows them to gauge submitted academic papers’ quality and suitability.
Last month’s ReWork Deep Learning Summit in London provided a peek at current recent research progress and future trends in artificial intelligence technologies. The two-day event featured top scientists and engineers from Facebook, MIT Media lab, DeepMind and other leading institutes.
The company made a series of AI-related announcements today at the Huawei Connect 2018 Conference in Shanghai, introducing two AI chips and a machine learning framework. Huawei’s AI push is expected to intensify its battle with domestic rivals Alibaba, Tencent and Baidu in the AI market.
