AIDL Weekly Issue 37 - First Level 4 SDC, Pieter Abbeel and Raquel Urtasun

Editorial

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

The biggest news last week: Waymo was putting the first Level 4 SDC on the ground. We also learned that Pieter Abbeel has left OpenAI and started his own robotic startup, Embodied Intelligence. Wired profiled Uber's new head of their Toronto's team, Raquel Urtasan. We cover all these pieces in our News section.

The rest of this issue should be very interesting as well: First is the new Distill article by (Chris) Olah, Mordvintsev and Schubert, which is an excellent review on visualization. Then, there is Google PhD Fellow Anirban Santara gave us his take on how to build a career in ML. AIDL-LD members, Ben Davis, gave us a nice summary of a paper on image fusion schemes. And you may feel interested in the two papers published by the Salesforce Einstein's Lab last week, both on NNMT, which Arthur reviewed this week.

AIDL Weekly Issue 36 - Capsules, Capsules and Capsules

Editorial

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

We were out last week. The hottest news this week is all about Prof. Hinton's capsule models!

Prof. Hinton and students just released an arxiv paper on how the idea of capsule can be used and specifically how it can outperform MNIST as well as its more difficult cousins, affMNIST and MultiMNIST, which had distorted MNIST with affined transform and heavy overlapping. So we dedicate this issue on capsules. We provide our own analysis in the thesis/paper review section, highlight a popular link from Wired, and cover the latest developments. So far, we already know of two implementations which attempt to repeat the result.

Other than that, check out other interesting links such as ex-Google Brain Resident David Ha's work on evolution strategy, and our piece on "Unsupervised Machine Translation Using Monolingual Corpora".

Editorial

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

Big announcement - last week, we launched our own topic-based messaging app called Expertify, to help you connect with other AI and DL professionals in our 45,000-member community. More details below on why we rolled our own and specific AI / DL features we want to add to it over time...

Download Expertify iOS app

We'd love for you you to try it and give us some feedback, if you are on iOS. We're working on a web app and a bit down the road, Android.

In other news, we heard of stunning news that AlphaGo beats itself again and created the first Go player which has Elo-rating over 5000.

In technical news, Google created a new activation function which works better than even ReLU. And we wrote a full review of Coursera deeplearning.ai Course 1, which was quite well-received in different networks.

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

Perhaps the biggest new to us last week is California will allow car companies to test their fully autonomous vehicles on the street as soon as 2018.

Deal of the week last week is the Amazon/MS joint release of Gluon.

Then there are interviews. You would be interested to hear Google CEO Sinchar Pinchai's view on what being AI-first means.

AIDL Weekly Issue 33 - All About DeepMind - Its Cost, Its Ethic Society and Its Recent Wavenet Launch

Editorial

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

We learnt more about DeepMind last week - we learn the hefty price to run it and its struggle to correct its image since the debacle of DeepMind Health-Royal Free event. But we also learnt that our beloved Wavenet is now in production within Google Assistant, and it's whopping 1000 times faster. This week, we'll cover DeepMind more in-depth.

We also have an issue filled with contents: "Confession of AI researchers" is our favorite link. We answer our member question on how to come up with new AI idea in "Questions from Members". And we dive into an interesting paper: "Unsupervised Hypernym Detection by Distributional Inclusion Vector Embedding" by Haw-Shiuan et al.

AIDL WEEKLY ISSUE 32 - The Consciousness Prior

Editorial

Thoughts From Your Humble Curators

Many interesting news last week including,

  • MS released new tools on Azure and Visual Studio to support deep learning,
  • Intel released Lolhi, a new neuromorphic chip,
  • Nvidia released its own deep learning accelerator chip design,
  • And we also read a Wire profile on the controversial figure - Anthony Lewandoski.

All of these pieces would normally be the highlights of the week. But then, Prof. Bengio come up with an intriguing note called "The Consciousness Prior". Upon closer read, it gives an interesting take on a potential mechanism to mimic human consciousness, or a kind of access of attention as neuroscientists like Stanislas Dahaene would call. So his paper is this week's theme.
