DeepMind’s Research Platform Team has open-sourced TF-Replicator, a framework that enables researchers without previous experience with the distributed system to deploy their TensorFlow models on GPUs and Cloud TPUs. The move aims to strengthen AI research and development.
TensorFlow is the world’s most popular open source machine learning library. Since its initial release in 2015, the Google Brain product has been downloaded over 41 million times. At this week’s 2019 TensorFlow Dev Summit, Google announced a major upgrade on the framework, the TensorFlow 2.0 Alpha version.
Natural language processing has made significant progress in the past year, but few frameworks focus directly on NLP or sequence modeling. Google Brain recently released Lingvo, a deep learning framework based on TensorFlow. Synced invited Ni Lao, Chief Science Officer at Mosaix, to share his thoughts on Lingvo.
Uber has unveiled Ludwig, a new TensorFlow-based toolkit that enables users to train and test deep learning models without writing any code. The toolkit will help non-experts understand models and accelerate their iterative development by simplifying the prototyping process and data processing.
Photos of an artificial intelligence textbook for Chinese preschoolers have gone viral. Artificial Intelligence Experiment Materials is a 33-volume textbook series aimed at Chinese students from kindergarten to high school that was published this July by Henan People’s Publishing House.
A Google engineer has used AI to enable humans to throw virtual punches and kicks at the tough guys in popular fighting video game Mortal Kombat3. Instead of jabbing at a controller, the user fights via a web camera, with the AI rendering their air strikes to an onscreen clone in real time. You punch and kick, and Kano goes down.
DeepMind announced today that it has opened its Graph Nets (GN) library to the public, enabling the use of graph networks in TensorFlow and Sonnet. Graph Nets is a machine learning framework that was published by DeepMind, Google Brain, MIT and University of Edinburgh on Jun 15.
Neural networks can be notoriously difficult to debug, but a Google Brain research team believes it may have come up with a novel solution. A paper by Augustus Odena and Ian Goodfellow introduces Coverage-Guided Fuzzing (CGF) methods for neural networks. The team also announced an open source software library for CGF, TensorFuzz 1.
At the 10th Google I/O, held May 17-19 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, Google took a different approach from unveiling exciting new products, by putting its focus on the convergence of existing products, aimed at providing a better user experience.
