SD Times news digest: Deep learning algorithm solves Rubik’s Cube, Apollo Data Graph Platform updated, and Progress’ MOVEit cloud solution

A deep learning algorithm created by researchers at the University of California Irvine (UCI) can solve Rubik’s Cubes faster than any human without any specific domain knowledge or in-game coaching from humans.  In a study, the researchers demonstrated that DeepCubeA solved 100 percent of all test configurations, finding the shortest path to the goal state … continue reading

SD Times GitHub project of the week: Machine Learning for Software Engineers

Get into a conversation with a developer, and you might find out that he or she is self-taught. Some developers started off as hobbyists with no computer science degree. Others watched videos and took courses online to add skills to their résumé. Like other passionate developers that take studying and learning the ins and outs … continue reading

MIT CSAIL’s new algorithm, Samsung announces new IoT strategy, and Dell sells its software group—SD Times news digest: June 21, 2016

Machines that can better understand human interactions could open up new possibilities for robots, which is why researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) trained an algorithm that can anticipate human interactions more accurately than before. The algorithm was trained on YouTube videos and TV shows like “The Office” and “Desperate Housewives.” … continue reading

MIT CSAIL researchers create video-trained AI that produces realistic sounds

As a way to help machines and robots better understand the objects and environment around them, researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have created an algorithm that can effectively learn how to predict sound. According to the researchers’ paper, “The algorithm uses a recurrent neural network to predict sound features from … continue reading

Algorithm seeks to predict police misconduct

To address growing concerns over police misconduct, new algorithms that claim to predict police misconduct might be of some use to police departments across the country. But the question is whether or not they will actually use them. Researchers who are part of the White House’s Police Data Initiative created the sophisticated system. The initiative … continue reading

New chip by MIT researchers may push IoT technology, and Ford and Pivotal team up on FordPass software—SD Times news digest: Feb. 8, 2016

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have designed a new chip specifically to implement neural networks. This chip may enable mobile devices to run powerful artificial intelligence algorithms and help “usher” along the Internet of Things. The chip is 10x as efficient as a mobile GPU, so it could enable devices to run … continue reading

AI research lab releases code to help with speech recognition

Yesterday, Baidu Research’s Silicon Valley AI Lab (SVAIL) released open-source code called Warp-CTC to GitHub. The goal is for this code to be used in the machine learning community. Warp-CTC is a tool that can plug into existing machine learning frameworks to speed up the development of artificial intelligence, and according to SVAIL, it will … continue reading

How AI aims to save Wikipedia, Nokia’s VR camera OZO, and Facebook’s new SDK—SD Times news digest: Dec. 1, 2015

Wikipedia has a past of being notorious for incorrect information, since it’s a site that anyone can edit. Aaron Halfaker, a senior research scientist at the Wikimedia Foundation, has built an artificial intelligence (AI) engine to identify these acts of vandalism, a step toward replacing some of the volunteer editors with AIs. His engine relies … continue reading

MIT researchers are working on object recognition through flexible machine learning

Do you want your photo tagging sites like Flickr to better recognize cats and dogs? MIT’s research lab, the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), is working on it. In December, CSAIL researchers will present a new way of using machine learning at the annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems. Built on a … continue reading

Google’s reCAPTCHA, Sony’s computer system hack and Samsung’s DeepSort algorithm—SD Times news digest: Nov. 26, 2014

Google has released reCAPTCHA, a free service to protect websites from spam and automated malware breaches. reCAPTCHA uses a risk-analysis engine and adaptive CAPTCHAs to recognize when a human user or a bot is attempting to access a site, and it learns as CAPTCHAs are solved to digitize text, annotate images and build machine-learning datasets. … continue reading
