These programmers taught an #AI how to understand tattoos

  • The process involved using a deep-learning framework called Caffe, and feeding it data-sets with images representative of different tattoo styles.
  • Once the initial training session was complete, the AI could identify the style of a tattoo with pretty impressive accuracy.
  • While the AI isn’t implemented into the app yet (they’re still feeding it data) they intend to finish training the AI then go forward from there.
  • AI will help us to classify the remaining 250k pictures… Classification is really important for us because, based on it, we can show users personalized feeds depending on what styles they like, what artists they follow, what those artists are specialized in, etc.
  • Without AI to sort images, a person has to view each one, decide what style it represents, tag the image, and then create hashtags so that other users can find it.

A pair of developers at Tattoodo developed a neural-network capable of processing pictures of tattoos and determining the style of the ink in the images.

Robot Uses Deep Learning and Big Data to Write and Play its Own Music

Using #ai + #bigdata this #robot from @GeorgiaTech can write and play its own music

  • “Once Shimon learns the four measures we provide, it creates its own sequence of concepts and composes its own piece,” said Bretan, who will receive his doctorate in music technology this summer at Georgia Tech.
  • “Shimon’s compositions represent how music sounds and looks when a robot uses deep neural networks to learn everything it knows about music from millions of human-made segments.”
  • Bretan says this is the first time a robot has used deep learning to create music.
  • Shimon was created by Bretan’s advisor, Gil Weinberg, director of Georgia Tech’s Center for Music Technology.
  • In the first piece, Bretan fed Shimon a melody comprised of eighth notes.

Shimon, a four-armed, marimba playing robot, is writing and playing its own music using deep learning. This is the first of its two songs.

Google Sheets now uses machine learning to help you visualize your data

Google Sheets now uses machine learning to help you visualize your data  #CompBindTech

  • After adding the machine learning-powered “Explore” feature last year, which lets you ask natural language questions about your data, it’s now expanding this feature to also automatically build charts for you.
  • All of this is backed by the same natural language understanding tech that already powered the “Explore” feature.
  • It’s worth noting that the previous version of “Explore” could already build graphs for you, but those focused on your complete data set.
  • With this new version, Google also is making it easier to keep in sync data from Sheets that you use in Docs or Slides.
  • You could already update charts you copy into Docs and Slides with just a click, but now you also can do the same with tables.

Google Sheets is getting smarter today. After adding the machine learning-powered “Explore” feature last year, which lets you ask natural language questions..
