The AI Rush – Serena Capital

Great report on the state of #AI startups in Europe. #MachineLearning #InsurTech

  • Because we know how to have fun ✌️, we were (litteraly) excited about spending days and nights on crunching data of European startups funded in 2016 to eventually get a real sense of what is AI and Data’s real trend in Europe.
  • 2800+ Startups later, we eventually found out 271 AI Data startups and here is our main conclusion: Yes, AI is a thing and it’s happening now.Not convincing enough?
  • Fundraising went crazy, and we always want more of itNumbers stagger : $774 million — Yes 7–7 and 4, nearly 10% of the total 10+ billion invested in European startups in 2016, has been fully dedicated to AI data.
  • Bringing the total investment in AI Data to 2 billion since 2014.2.
  • This trend has been led by early stage investments which played a signifiant role: $215 million have been invested in 171 early stage startups (0 to $5m in funding).

Real-time Performance RNN in the Browser

Lovely music: listen to a real-time performance RNN in the browser with deeplearn.js:

  • Thanks to the recently-released deeplearn.js environment, you can now enjoy real-time Performance RNN piano performances in the browser.
  • deeplearn.js is an open-source Javascript library that enables GPU-based training and evaluation of models in the browser.
  • It includes tools for porting TensorFlow models, which we were able to use to translate a Performance RNN checkpoint into a format that deeplearn.js could use.
  • We then translated our model architecture to use the deeplearn.js TypeScript libraries and added a user interface.
  • We hope you enjoy playing with Performance RNN in the browser and that this serves as an example of how easy it is to translate TensorFlow models to the web.

Why human-like robots make us feel uncomfortable

Why Human-Like #Robots Make Us Feel Uncomfortable

  • Artificial intelligence — the idea of a robot developing self-consciousness — is something that all three of these men feel are a serious threat to the existence of humanity.
  • Last December, renowned cosmologist Stephen Hawking told the BBC, “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.”
  • In particular, they fear something referred to as the “singularity”: the moment when artificial intelligence is capable of redesigning itself, improving itself to the point of an intelligence that far exceeds that of humans.
  • Now, human-like also includes movement, such as seen here: – – Boston Dynamics also has a way of making you feel a bit uncomfortable, but not with human-like robots.
  • Now, if you’re worried about the robot apocalypse, just think: Google already has more than 20 driver-less cars on the road, bought Boston Dynamics — a company that specializes in advanced robots — in 2013, and is actively pursuing artificial intelligence research.

Self-driving cars? Cool. Robots that look like people? Not so much. Why do these robots make us feel more than a little uncomfortable?

It’s official: AI is better than humans at naming craft beers

#ai AI is better than humans at naming craft beers  via @thenextweb

  • I often tell people not to worry about robots taking our jobs, but if you’re in the business of branding craft beer, your career might well be nearing its end, thanks to a clever new AI that’s figured out how to do it on its own.
  • Researcher and electrical engineer Janelle Shane, who’s previously taught AI to conjure up pick-up lines and christen guinea pigs, developed a neural network system to name craft brews by learning from an extensive dataset spanning 90 types of beer culled from BeerAdvocate.com.
  • Here are some of my favorites, which I’d happily consider drinking if I spotted these names on a tap or label:

    Do those sound good or what?

  • There’s more where that came from over at Shane’s blog, and you can also hand over your email address for a PDF with 100 more great names.
  • Craft beer names, invented by neural network on Lewis and Quark
