OpenAI releases powerful text generator

The laboratory, founded by Elon Musk and recently supported by a $1 billion grant from Microsoft, has designed text generators that create readable passages virtually indistinguishable from those written by humans. OpenAI’s machine learning approach scrapes massive amounts of data from the web and analyzes it for statistical patterns that allow it to realistically predict […]

Artificial brains may need sleep too

No one can say whether androids will dream of electric sheep, but they will almost certainly need periods of rest that offer benefits similar to those that sleep provides to living brains, according to new research from Los Alamos National Laboratory. Watkins and her research team found that the network simulations became unstable after continuous […]

5 Essential Papers on AI Training Data

Many data scientists claim that around80% of their time is spent on data preprocessing, and for good reasons, as collecting, annotating, and formatting data are crucial tasks in machine learning. This article will help you understand the importance of these tasks, as well as learn methods and tips from other researchers. Below, we will highlight […]

Our weird behavior during the pandemic is messing with AI models

In the week of April 12-18, the top 10 search terms on Amazon.com were: toilet paper, face mask, hand sanitizer, paper towels, Lysol spray, Clorox wipes, mask, Lysol, masks for germ protection, and N95 mask. People weren’t just searching, they were buying too—and in bulk. The majority of people looking for masks ended up buying […]

IBM will no longer offer, develop, or research facial recognition technology

IBM will no longer offer general purpose facial recognition or analysis software, IBM CEO Arvind Krishna said in a letter to Congress today. The company will also no longer develop or research the technology, IBM tells The Verge. Krishna addressed the letter to Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Reps. Karen Bass […]

Train ALBERT for natural language processing with TensorFlow on Amazon SageMaker

At re:Invent 2019, AWSsharedthe fastest training times on the cloud for two popular machine learning (ML) models: BERT (natural language processing) and Mask-RCNN (object detection). To train BERT in 1 hour, we efficiently scaled out to 2,048 NVIDIA V100 GPUs by improving the underlying infrastructure, network, and ML framework.Today, we’re open-sourcing the optimized training codefor […]

Top 10 Best FREE Artificial Intelligence Courses

Most of the Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Computer Vision, NLP job positions, or in general every Artificial Intelligence (AI) job position requires you to have at least a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or some similar field. If your degree comes from some of the world’s best universities than your chances might be […]

A highly efficient, real-time text to speech system deployed on CPUs

Modern text-to-speech (TTS) systems have come a long way in using neural networks to mimic the nuances of human voice. To generate humanlike audio, one second of speech can require a TTS system to output as many as 24,000 samples — sometimes even more. The size and complexity of state-of-the-art models require massive computation, which […]

The Hateful Memes AI Challenge

We’ve built and are now sharing a data set designed specifically to help AI researchers develop new systems to identify multimodal hate speech. This content combines different modalities, such as text and images, making it difficult for machines to understand. The Hateful Memes data set contains 10,000+ new multimodal examples created by Facebook AI. We […]

Ultimate Guide to Natural Language Processing Courses

Selecting an online course that will match your requirements is very frustrating if you have high standards. Most of them are not comprehensive and a lot of time spent on them is wasted. How would you feel, if someone would provide you a critical path and tell, what modules exactly and in which order will […]
