Researchers Build An #AI That’s Better At Reading Lips Than Humans  #MachineLearning

  • Scientists at the Oxford University have claimed to develop a new computer software program that can lip-read better than humans, which might give the hearing impaired a helping hand.
  • The new artificial intelligence (AI) software system called “Watch, Attend and Spell (WAS)” has been developed by Oxford University in collaboration with Google’s DeepMind.
  • The AI system correctly lip-read 50 percent of silent speech, while professional lip-readers got only 12 percent right, researchers found.
  • Speaking on the tech’s core value, Jesal Vishnuram, Action on Hearing Loss Technology Research Manager, said: “Action on Hearing Loss welcomes the development of new technology that helps people who are deaf or have a hearing loss to have better access to television through superior real-time subtitling.
  • AI lip-reading technology would be able to enhance the accuracy and speed of speech-to-text especially in noisy environments and we encourage further research in this area and look forward to seeing new advances being made.”

Google’s AI software is learning to make AI software

#Future #Tech: #AI software learns to make... AI software! #SkynetAlert
►  via @MIT

  • AI Software Learns to Make AI Software
  • In recent months several other groups have also reported progress on getting learning software to make learning software.
  • Now leading researchers are finding that they can make software that can learn to do one of the trickiest parts of their own jobs-the task of designing machine-learning software.
  • Google and others think software that learns to learn could take over some work done by AI experts.
  • If self-starting AI techniques become practical, they could increase the pace at which machine-learning software is implemented across the economy.

  • The researchers tested their system on new images and found that it could discern road features fairly accurately.
  • I am the senior editor for AI at MIT Technology Review .
  • Some video games are now so visually realistic that they can let a computer vision learn about the real world (see ” Self-Driving Cars Can Learn a Lot by Playing Grand Theft Auto “).
  • Researchers at Princeton University recently developed a computer vision and mapping system that gathered useful information about the physical properties of roads by studying Google Street View and comparing the scenes to the information provided in open-source mapping data.
  • The researchers trained their system using 150,000 Street View panoramas.

Playing video games and surfing Google Street View can teach software a lot about driving.

Spoiler Alert: Artificial Intelligence Can Predict How Scenes Will Play Out

Spoiler alert: Artificial Intelligence can predict how scenes will play out

  • A new artificial intelligence system can take still images and generate short videos that simulate what happens next similar to how humans can visually imagine how a scene will evolve, according to a new study.
  • The system is also able to learn unsupervised, the researchers said.
  • When the researchers asked workers on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk crowdsourcing platform to pick which videos were real, the users picked the machine-generated videos over genuine ones 20 percent of the time, the researchers said.
  • “Compared to GANs, VPN are easier to train, but take much longer to generate a video,” he told Live Science.
  • But the researchers said that the approach could eventually help robots and self-driving cars navigate dynamic environments and interact with humans, or let Facebook automatically tag videos with labels describing what is happening.

Artificial Intelligence Just Broke Steve Jobs’ Wall of Secrecy

  • Artificial Intelligence Just Broke Steve Jobs’ Wall of Secrecy
  • Uber Buys a Mysterious Startup to Make Itself an AI Company
  • Trump Can’t Deliver the Rust Belt Jobs He Promised Because Work Has Changed
  • Apple is intent on embracing this data-hungry approach to AI.
  • Sure, Apple won’t share all its work-no company does.

Secrecy doesn’t play in AI research. And as it happens, AI is more important to the future of tech giants like Apple than any other.
