Enabling the 'imagination' of artificial intelligence
A team of researchers at USC is helping AI imagine the unseen, a technique that could also lead to fairer AI, new medicines and increased autonomous vehicle safety. Despite advances in deep neural networks that match or surpass human performance in certain tasks, computers still struggle with the very human skill of "imagination."
Make your own AI models, no code required.
It’s now easier than ever to bring machine learning into your business. With Primer Automate, you can train NLP models to execute your organization’s repetitive text-based tasks, such as classifying, identifying, or summarizing, with human-level precision. Use Automate to scale up your information processing capacity, so you can focus on higher-level tasks.

How Google used machine learning to dramatically improve chip design
And yet some recent success by Google engineers with reinforcement learning and chip design points to principles that can guide any enterprise. Block by block As written up in Nature, the Google engineers took a novel approach to "floorplanning": Chip floorplanning is the engineering task of...
Is our machine learning? Ars takes a dip into artificial intelligence
These discreet, unseen decisions are being made largely by algorithms created by machine learning (ML), a segment of artificial intelligence technology that is trained to identify correlation between sets of data and their outcomes.

On DINO, Self-Distillation With No Labels
The normal Transformer works by taking as input a series of vectors representing the words of a sentence to which the mechanism of self-attention is applied. DINO: Self-Distillation with no labels Facebook AI researchers wondered whether the success of the Transformers in Computer Vision stemmed...
‘Undetectable’ Console Cheat Shuts Down After Activision Request
Last week, a new cheat called Userviz started getting attention after a well-known cheat hunter group tweeted about it, calling it "the next generation of cheating." Last week, in an interview with Motherboard, User101 explained how his cheat worked, and said that he believed what he was doing was...
Contact aware robot design
Adequate biomimicry in robotics necessitates a delicate balance between design and control, an integral part of making our machines more like us.
Nikola Danaylov: Technology Reveals Who We Are, Not The Future
Thus, Silicon Valley gave us not only fake news but also fake revolution, fake change, fake friends, fake saving the world, fake ethics, fake privacy, fake freedom, and, as we can see in the streets of LA and San Fran – fake abundance and fake techno philanthropists.
Ethics in AI
Lord Clement Jones CBE - Co-Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence and Vice Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Groups on Digital Regulation Lord Clement-Jones was made CBE for political services in 1988 and life peer in 1998.
Ethics of AI Lab
💥 Apply Now: Postdoctoral Fellow in Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (due Aug.1) Since 2017, the Ethics of AI Lab at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Ethics has fostered academic and public dialogue about Ethics of AI in Context—the normative dimensions of artificial intelligence and related...
Getting dressed with help from robots
Scientists from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have recently created a new algorithm to help a robot find efficient motion plans to ensure physical safety of its human counterpart.
Watch Robots Make Pizzas From Start to Finish at an Automated Pizzeria
But the idea of robots taking over repetitive food preparation work has only gained traction, especially in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. From dough-grabbing to inserting in the oven, preparing a pizza takes just 45 seconds. The oven can bake 6 pizzas at a time, yielding about 80 pizzas per...
Why Scientists Love Making Robots Build Ikea Furniture
Why Scientists Love Making Robots Build Ikea Furniture This robot can help a human assemble a bookcase by predicting what part they’ll want next and handing it over. Others managed to get a different set of robot arms to construct Ikea chairs in the real world, though it took them 20 minutes.
Applying Natural Language Processing Across the World’s Languages
As a consequence, a wide range of tools abstracting the complexity of large model development are now available, including the following: NVIDIA Megatron LM—A computationally efficient model and pipeline parallel implementation of self-attention and multilayer perceptron together with...
