Robots Made Out of Branches Use Deep Learning to Walk
Designing robots is a finicky process, requiring an exhaustive amount of thought and care. In a paper presented at a NeurIPS workshop last December, a group of researchers from the University of Tokyo and Preferred Networks experimented with building mobile robots out of a couple of generic servos...
Where We See Shapes, AI Sees Textures
A research team in Germany has now discovered an unexpected reason why: While humans pay attention to the shapes of pictured objects, deep learning computer vision algorithms routinely latch on to the objects’ textures instead.
AIs named by AIs
One thing I’ve noticed GPT-2 doing is coming up with names that sound strangely like the names of self-aware AI spaceships in Iain M. Banks’s Culture novels.
