Google, university researchers introduce Open Image Dataset to advance machine learning

Recent advances in machine learning have changed the way computers understand digital images and video. In order to further advance natural language and machine learning, Google introduced Open Images, a dataset consisting 9 million URLs to images that have been annotated with labels that cover more than 6,000 categories. According to Google software engineers Tom … continue reading

Analyst View: Biomimetics for the Internet of Things

There’s no room for uncertainty in the software that responds to a machine’s “Emergency Stop” button. At first sight, software inspired by nature (biomimetic software) delivers more uncertainty than answers. But maybe that’s an illusion. Software development is full of new, reinvented and changing concepts, items and structures. One concept that has always captured the … continue reading

SD Times GitHub project of the week: FastText

For humans, writing posts on social media just comes naturally. Humans understand each word that’s said or typed, but for machines, it’s not that easy. Understanding the meaning of words is one of the biggest challenges that artificial intelligence researchers face today, and this week’s GitHub project named fastText aims to solve that challenge. Automatic … continue reading

Pat AI combines linguistics, neural networks to create a new type of artificial intelligence

A new artificial intelligence company thinks that its breakthrough in natural language understanding can take on what machine learning experts say is an unsolvable challenge: getting machines to understand human language and its meaning. Pat Inc., which announced its private beta and US$2.5 million in seed funding this month, is developing artificial intelligence technology that … 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

SD Times Blog: Teaching neural networks to understand emoji speak

Neural networks can now tackle one of the most important problems our smartphone generation has ever faced: What emoji to use? On a more serious note, neural networks (a computer system that’s modeled after the neurons in the brain) have become a powerful tool for software and robotics. Facebook uses neural networks to identify faces … continue reading

Twitterbot uses deep learning to channel inner Donald Trump

If you thought republican presidential candidate Donald Trump already said enough crazy things, you might not want to follow his Twitterbot. A postdoc from MIT’s Computer Science Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has developed a Twitterbot that uses an artificial intelligence algorithm, deep learning techniques and neural networks to tweet out Trump-like statements such as “I’m … continue reading

CMU wants to make computers learn and think like humans

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University are on a mission to advance the science of machine learning algorithms and computer vision. As such, they have announced a five-year, US$12 million research effort to reverse-engineer the brain. The goal of the project is to unlock the secrets of neural circuitry and brain-learning methods in order to get … continue reading
