Artificial intelligence could be used to stop car smugglers

  • Image recognition software can spot illegal cars in shipping crates
  • Artificial intelligence could be used to stop car smugglers
  • It wasn’t a revolutionary study, to be sure, but the project is a great example of how deep learning image recognition will be used to make our lives easier in the future.
  • The neural network was startlingly accurate — correctly identifying cars 100-percent of the time with very few false alarms.
  • Curiosity finds evidence that Mars was once rich in oxygen

Artificial intelligence will have implications for policymakers in education, welfare and geopolitics

Artificial intelligence will require big changes in education

  • Compared with the complexity of overhauling the education system, a basic income appears to offer a simple, attractive and easily understood solution.
  • Mr Thrun’s was completed by 23,000 people; Mr Ng’s by 13,000.
  • Compared with existing welfare schemes, that would reduce income for the poorest, while giving the rich money they do not need.
  • Funding a basic income that would provide a reasonable living would require much higher taxes than at present.
  • AI technology has great potential in education. “

#293: AI & the Future of Interactive Drama

.@mark_riedl Woah! This is an EPIC paper on #AI & storytelling. I interviewed Façade's Stern

  • I had a chance to catch up with Andrew and Larry to learn more about using AI to create plausible characters, IMMERSE, as well as their new company called Playabl where they’re continuing to develop their Unity AI toolkit for creating fully interactive dramas.
  • When I saw a demo of IMMERSE at the Portland Virtual Reality Meetup, I felt like I was seeing the future of what’s possible in creating plausible NPC characters.
  • And in terms of natural language input, Façade was a pioneer of allowing you to say anything at anytime and have the story adapt and respond to your character.
  • Creating plausibility within a VR experience means that you have to create an environment that feels coherent, and believable.
  • For anyone interested in learning more about how to architect and create a interactive drama with both local and global agency, then I’d highly suggest spending $5 to buy the “Behind the Façade” Guide, which is an amazing document that talks about the architecture of a highly dynamic story that makes the user feel like they’re an active participant in creating it.

@kentbye: “.@mark_riedl Woah! This is an EPIC paper on #AI & storytelling. I interviewed Façade’s Stern”


Andrew Stern doesn’t enjoy most AAA video games because he wants to be able to say anything at any moment within a social simulation and participate in an interesting story. About once week, he’d like to engage with a high agency, interactive drama with artificially intelligent NPCs. Rather than long and extended play sessions, he’d prefer a short 20-30 minute experience that he can play over and over again trying different strategies with characters who feel real and plausible.

[1511.05298] Structural-RNN: Deep Learning on Spatio-Temporal Graphs

CVPR 2016 Best Student Paper: Structural-RNN: Deep Learning on Spatio-Temporal Graphs  #cvpr

  • The proposed method is generic and principled as it can be used for transforming any spatio-temporal graph through employing a certain set of well defined steps.
  • That is while many problems in computer vision inherently have an underlying high-level structure and can benefit from it.
  • We expect the method to empower new approaches to problem formulation through high-level spatio-temporal graphs and Recurrent Neural Networks.
  • Spatio-temporal graphs are a popular tool for imposing such high-level intuitions in the formulation of real world problems.
  • We develop a scalable method for casting an arbitrary spatio-temporal graph as a rich RNN mixture that is feedforward, fully differentiable, and jointly trainable.
