SD Times Blog: Fonts and neural nets

It seems like neural networks are taking over. We see their code open-sourced, they power our self-driving vehicles, we use them as programming assistants, and we’ve even let them rate our selfies. Now, deep neural networks have analyzed 50,000 fonts, just because. The man behind this crazy font fun is Erik Bernhardsson, a CTO at … continue reading

NVIDIA’s AI supercomputer for autonomous cars, TIOBE’s programming language of the year, and AppDynamics and Compuware’s partnership—SD Times news digest Jan. 5, 2016

NVIDIA is looking to power self-driving cars with an artificial intelligence supercomputer. The NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 utilizes deep learning and situational awareness to tackle complexities inherent in autonomous driving. It features a surround view solution, a deep neural network pipeline, and sensor fusion. “Drivers deal with an infinitely complex world,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, cofounder … continue reading

2015: The Internet of Things takes another step

Much ink was spilled in 2015 about the Internet of Things. It’s a concept that has been bandied about for several years—remember the use case of your refrigerator letting your local grocer know when you’re out of milk? The coming together of smartphones, sensors, GPS, Bluetooth and other technologies that enable mobile interconnectivity has moved … continue reading

Code Watch: Using deep neural networks as programming assistants

How can programmers benefit from the “the year of Neural Nets”? Statistical machine learning techniques have been surging in popularity in academic settings for years, but 2015 was a watershed in terms of industry awareness and deployment. It was not long ago when the term “Deep Neural Networks” seemed about as dubious an explanation as … continue reading

Microsoft’s AI advancements, tech tattoos, and Dell addresses security vulnerability—SD Times news digest: Nov. 25, 2015

Microsoft researchers say they are making advancements in computer vision, deep learning, and understanding images. The company, along with colleagues from Carnegie Mellon University, has developed a new system that analyzes images and interprets it as a human would. “The ability to answer questions is critical to developing artificial intelligence tools, and this breakthrough could … continue reading

AI system teaches itself how to play chess using machine learning

A new artificial intelligence system is using new methods to tackle chess. About 20 years ago, IBM’s Deep Blue chess-playing supercomputer was used to beat reigning world champion Garry Kasparov. At the time, IBM’s supercomputer was using brute force to play against its human opponents. Today, the MIT Technology Review reported that Matthew Lai, a … continue reading

SD Times Blog: Google’s AI neural network creates psychedelic art with ‘Inceptionism’

Google has developed an artificially intelligent neural network that’s transforming images into eye-popping pieces of psychedelic art. Through a process Google is calling “Inceptionism,” the company’s research arm has developed image recognition software running artificial neural networks that mimic human brain function. Inceptionism then allows the software to analyze an image—its objects, layers and characteristics—and … continue reading

SD Times GitHub Project of the Week: Keras

This week’s featured GitHub project is Keras, a modular neural network and deep-learning library based on the Theano Python library. Keras allows for fast prototyping of deep-learning applications through a minimalist library structure of modular, extensible components. Developed by François Chollet, the neural network library is designed for quick experimentation, and supports both convolutional and … continue reading

NVIDIA takes learning deep

It’s been a few years since hardware makers found it fashionable to sell computers directly to the developer. Workstations were mainstay devices for developers in the 1980s and 1990s, but the turn of the millennium brought with it a preference toward generic PCs for development machines. NVIDIA is hoping to change this with the Digits … continue reading

Android for Work, Microsoft’s cross-platform Garage apps, and an Oculus VR app developer contest—SD Times news digest: Feb. 26, 2015

Google has launched Android for Work, a set of mobile enterprise tools for employees to use personal and business applications on the same Android device. The suite of enterprise app-management and security services includes encrypted work profiles, built-in productivity tools integrated with Google Drive, and a standalone app and app store—the Android for Work app … continue reading

If computers only had a brain…

Someday, your technology will be able to help you in ways you could only imagine, or at least developers and researchers are hoping so. They envision a world in which technology learns from the user, and takes actions accordingly. It is a goal that comes out of the idea of brain-inspired computing: software that runs … continue reading
