Hyperimaging and AI will give us superhero vision- IBM Research

In 5 years, hyperimaging and #AI will give us superhero vision:  #IBM5in5

  • A view of the invisible or vaguely visible physical phenomena all around us could help make road and traffic conditions clearer for drivers and self-driving cars.
  • For example, using millimeter wave imaging, a camera and other sensors, hyperimaging technology could help a car see through fog or rain, detect hazardous and hard-to-see road conditions such as black ice, or tell us if there is some object up ahead and its distance and size.
  • Cognitive computing technologies will reason about this data and recognize what might be a tipped over garbage can versus a deer crossing the road, or a pot hole that could result in a flat tire.

Our ability to see beyond visible light will reveal new insights to help us understand the world around us. This technology will be widely available throughout our daily lives, giving us the ability to perceive or see through objects and opaque environmental conditions anytime, anywhere.

Cars are learning to hear like humans and self-diagnose problems

Hear that? Your #car just did - ! 🚗 #iot #ai

  • Just like humans identify whether or not there is a problem with the car by hearing odd sounds coming from the engine or by hearing creaking sounds, cars can identify as well.
  • Their software can give cars the ability to diagnose problems themselves by simply hearing anomalous sounds coming from the car and/or the environment.
  • They are testing the tech by providing it with many sounds that come from their cars.
  • This can be a huge boost as one of the important factors of customer dissatisfaction is odd noises coming from a car and not being able to locate the problem.
  • Other than diagnosing problems, this tech can also be used to help cars in perceiving their environment.

Intelligent machines are not only trying to learn and act like humans, they are beginning to sense their environment like them as well. Latest among them are cars that are getting a sense of hearing that would allow them to enhance their intelligence level by perceiving their environment like humans do.

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning  #IIoT #IoT #IoE #InternetOfThings #MachineLearning

  • 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..

Robot Cars Can Learn to Drive without Leaving the Garage

  • 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.
