  • McKinsey identified 120 potential use cases of machine learning in 12 industries and surveyed more than 600 industry experts on their potential impact.
  • The study underscores how critical integration is for gaining greater value from data and analytics.
  • Design-to-value, supply chain management and after-sales support are three areas where analytics are making a financial contribution in manufacturing.
  • Location-based services and U.S. retail are showing the greatest progress capturing value from data and analytics .

These and many other insights are from the McKinsey Global Institute’s study The Age of Analytics: Competing In A Data-Driven World published in collaboration with McKinsey Analytics this month. You can get a copy of the Executive Summary here (28 pp., free, no opt-in, PDF) and the full report (136 pp., free, no opt-in, PDF) here. Five years ago the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) released Big Data: The Next Frontier For Innovation, Competition, and Productivity (156 pp., free no opt-in, PDF), and in the years since McKinsey sees data science adoption and value accelerate, specifically in the areas of machine learning and deep learning. The study underscores how critical integration is for gaining greater value from data and analytics.

AI System Can Generate High-Res Images Based On a Text Description

#AI system can generate high-res images based on a basic text description

  • Our StackGAN for the first time generates 256 x 256 images with photo-realistic details.”
  • This piece of work is completely different: after learning the neural networks are able to create something completely new – such as synthesizing new, photorealistic images from a piece of text we have written.
  • Home > Cool Tech > Neural network can create high-res images based on
  • It’s also fascinating because the two-stage method of drawing images looks, to our way of thinking, a whole lot like the way artists will sketch out a piece of work, and then do a second pass to add detail.
  • Neural network can create high-res images based on a text description

In a new piece of research, neural networks have been used to generate high-resolution photos based only on a basic text description.
