Learning to communicate
New OpenAI research in which agents develop their own language.
Machines could learn common sense from video
Yann LeCun says the next frontier in machine vision is software that learns just by observing the world.
How DeepMind’s memory trick helps AI learn faster
"While AI systems can match many human capabilities, they take 10 times longer to learn. Now, by copying the way the brain works, Google DeepMind has built a machine that is closing the gap."
Enabling Continual Learning in Neural Networks
"Computer programs that learn to perform tasks also typically forget them very quickly. We show that the learning rule can be modified so that a program can remember old tasks when learning a new one. This is an important step towards more intelligent programs that are able to learn progressively and adaptively."
Apple’s AI Director: Here’s how to supercharge Deep Learning
Ruslan Salakhutdinov, who leads Apple’s AI efforts, says emerging techniques could make the most popular approach in the field far more powerful.
Software tools & code
Basics of Entity Resolution
Entity resolution (ER) is the task of disambiguating records that correspond to real world entities across and within datasets. The applications of entity resolution are tremendous, particularly for public sector and federal datasets related to health, transportation, finance, law enforcement, and antiterrorism.
Deep Learning without Backpropagation
In this blogpost, we're going to prototype (from scratch) and learn the intuitions behind DeepMind's recently proposed Decoupled Neural Interfaces Using Synthetic Gradients paper.
Encrypted Deep Learning
Using so-called homomorphic encryption to run Deep Learning models on encrypted data.
Upgrade to SyntaxNet, new models and a parsing competition
"We are releasing a major upgrade to SyntaxNet. This upgrade incorporates nearly a year’s worth of our research on multilingual language understanding, and is available to anyone interested in building systems for processing and understanding text"
