  • Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed.
  • In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome.
  • From our friends at R2D3 is a very interesting visual introduction to machine learning.

AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software

#AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software

  • XNOR.ai frees AI from the prison of the supercomputer
  • AI software is figuring out how to best humans at designing new AI software
  • Posted 22 hours ago by Darrell Etherington ( @etherington )
  • MIT Media Lab is open-sourcing its own efforts to create learning software from other machine learning programs, and this should help with industry-wide efforts to make this a practical way to create new software.
  • Kristen Stewart co-authored a paper on style transfer and the AI community lost its mind

Who programs the programmers? Soon enough, it might not be people behind the development of advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence tech, but..

  • 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.

AI versus machine learning: what’s the difference?

'Machine learning versus #AI: what's the difference?'

  • Google ‘learns’ to correct it for you.
  • The UK has a new AI centre – so when robots kill, we know who to blame
  • AI and machine learning are very much related, but they’re not quite the same thing
  • AI is a branch of computer science attempting to build machines capable of intelligent behaviour, while 
Stanford University defines machine learning as “the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed”.
  • “So the enabler for AI is machine learning,” she added.

Intel’s Nidhi Chappell, head of machine learning, reveals what separates the two computer sciences and why they’re so important
