5 things the Samsung Galaxy S8’s Bixby artificial intelligence service will do

5 things the Samsung Galaxy S8’s Bixby artificial intelligence service will do

  • According to Samsung, it sure can, and that’s what it the company out to prove with its Bixby AI service.
  • Bixby is being loaded on the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, which were announced on Tuesday.
  • Bixby is an agent that can help the smartphones talk, recommend, and remind, said Mok Oh, vice president of service strategy at Samsung.
  • The AI service is being positioned as a more intuitive way to use and interact with smartphones.
  • For example, Bixby can help smartphones execute tasks with a voice command.

Lab41 Reading Group: Swapout: Learning an Ensemble of Deep Architectures

Ensemble of Deep Architectures. #BigData #DeepLearning #MachineLearning #DataScience

  • Swapout samples from every possible stochastic depth and ResNet architecture, both including and not include dropout!
  • When training the network is constantly mutating as units pick different ways of behaving, but at inference time that network needs to be roughly static so that the same input will always yield the same prediction.
  • Stochastic depth can be thought of as randomly selecting between the outcomes {X, F(X)} for each block, so that every unit in the block returns X or F(X) together.
  • Each box represents a block, and each circle is a unit from the block.
  • A unit that is dropped half the time would (by chance) appear in half randomly generated versions of the network.

Next up for the reading group is a paper about a new stochastic training method: Swapout.

Apple brings Google-style machine learning to ‘Photos’

Apple brings Google-style machine learning to 'Photos' #WWDC2016

  • Apple brings Google-style machine learning to ‘Photos’
  • Photos now offers up new ways to re-surface forgotten photos too – much like Google Photos.
  • The features borrow some of the best features from Google Photos, like re-surfacing memorable events, creating albums based on events, people and places, and using deep learning to help find images in a more intuitive way.
  • It’s essentially facial recognition that works on places and objects as well.
  • Instead of periodically sorting through old photos, Apple brings these memories to life with a new feature called… wait for it… ‘Memories.’
