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 […]

B-21 stealth bomber running Kubernetes for better SDLC experience

The new stealth U.S. Air Force B-21 bomber has taken yet another key technological step toward being ready for war, through integrated computer automation designed to streamline information, improve targeting and offer pilots organized warzone information in real-time. Air Force and Northrop Grumman developers recently completedan essential software-empowered process intended to bring greater levels of […]

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 […]

Growing Anomalies at the Large Hadron Collider Raise Hopes

Recent measurements of particles called B mesons deviate from predictions. Alone, each oddity looks like a fluke, but their collective drift is more suggestive. Computer reconstruction of a collision event in the Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment. The collision produces a B meson, which subsequently decays into other particles that strike LHCb’s detectors. Amid the […]

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 […]

Python 3.9 – The Shape of Things to Come

Python 3.9 is scheduled for 5th October 2020. There is still a long way to go until then, however, with the latest alpha 3.9.0a6 released last week and the beta version is just around the corner, we can already discuss new features. In this article, we explore some features that we have found interesting and […]
