This is why AI shouldn’t design inspirational posters

And this is why AI shouldn't design inspirational posters...

  • Inspirational posters have their place.
  • An AI dubbed InspiroBot, brought to our attention by IFL Science, puts together some of the most bizarre (and thus delightful) inspirational posters around.
  • The dog’s cute, but this isn’t great advice either.
  • This bot obviously doesn’t know many LARPers, or hang around at Renaissance Faires.
  • The bot’s posters fall in between Commander Data trying to offer advice and a mistranslated book of quaint sayings.

The results are kind of like if Commander Data from Star Trek tried to be your motivational therapist.

Amazon Rekognition Is An Image Recognition Service By Amazon  #aws #Reinvent #machinelearning

  • Amazon Rekognition Is An Image Recognition Service By Amazon
  • According to Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels, “Amazon Rekognition democratizes the application of deep learning technique for detecting objects, scenes, concepts, and faces in your images, comparing faces between two images, and performing search functionality across millions of facial feature vectors that your business can store with Amazon Rekognition.”
  • Now it seems that Amazon wants in as well as they have announced Amazon Rekognition .
  • As to who might be taking advantage of Amazon’s Rekognition service remains to be seen, as well as the various applications that it might be used for.

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

  • The software uses a deep-learning algorithm that was trained on two million unlabeled videos amounting to a year’s worth of screen time.
  • Posted by Shane Hinshaw in categories: information science , robotics/AI , transportation
  • The new software is claimed to be more accurate, by producing up to 32 frames per second and building out entire scenes in one go.
  • The technology is still bare-bones, but could one day make for smarter self-driving cars that are better prepared for the unexpected, among other applications.
  • Well, scientists at MIT have just trained machines to do the same thing, with artificial intelligence software that can take a single image and use it to to create a short video of the seconds that followed.

Facebook Gives Away Machine Vision Tools of the Future

Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) is giving away machine vision tools

  • Facebook Gives Away Machine Vision Tools of the Future
  • Area Filmmaker Not So Thrilled Trump Used His Footage in an Ad
  • The company has the tools to the public-open sourced them-so that any developer can play with the code and use it in their own projects.
  • His team has built a set of tools that does just that.
  • For example, the company eventually build software that could fully describe photos to blind users ( it’s already part of the way there ).
