The sun sets behind the astonishingly beautiful Borobudur Temple, one of the many gems of Central Java, Indonesia.

AI may find immeasurable potential in the medical industry of developing countries with big population.
 
Imagine if, the next time you or your children feel ill, you could tell the computer what symptoms you're experiencing: "I have a sore throat, slightly runny eyes, and my back has been aching for the last 24 hours," and have the computer immediately suggest diagnoses, then try to connect you to a human doctor. Our AskADoctor project just came out of stealth, and is now providing this service to users (in China, in Chinese). Users find the natural language interface easier than traditional diagnosis systems that required users to navigate jargon-laden menus. I'm excited about Deep Learning's potential to improve healthcare worldwide, and am also inspired by this work as an example of how the rise of Deep Learning is allowing teams to create innovative new services.  Congrats to Wei Fan and team on this launch!

All of these images were computer generated!

For the last few weeks, Googlers have been obsessed with an internal visualization tool that Alexander Mordvintsev in our Zurich office created to help us visually understand some of the things happening inside our deep neural networks for computer vision.  The tool essentially starts with an image, runs the model forwards and backwards, and then makes adjustments to the starting image in weird and magnificent ways.  

In the same way that when you are staring at clouds, and you can convince yourself that some part of the cloud looks like a head, maybe with some ears, and then your mind starts to reinforce that opinion, by seeing even more parts that fit that story ("wow, now I even see arms and a leg!"), the optimization process works in a similar manner, reinforcing what it thinks it is seeing.  Since the model is very deep, we can tap into it at various levels and get all kinds of remarkable effects.

Alexander, +Christopher Olah, and Mike Tyka wrote up a very nice blog post describing how this works:

There's also a bigger album of more of these pictures linked from the blog post:

I’m delighted to announce that I’ll be teaching an all day Photography and Post-processing Workshop on June 26th in Chicago, during the Out of Chicago Photography Conference. 

Details and signup: http://bit.ly/chicago-workshop

From an extraordinary sunset on a quaint Greek Island to the bustling scene of gondolas on the busy Grand Canal in Venice, the memories of our favorite travel experiences are a complex blend of all five senses. The sights, sounds, smells, and feelings coalesce to create our visual memory as perfect “Moments in Time”.

Spend the day with me, as I guide you through the traditional in-camera and digital post-processing techniques I use to capture and translate those Moments in Time into emotional visual scenes. 

This workshop will build upon core photography principles and techniques, and introduce you to powerful post-processing methods in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom including, Editing in Adobe Camera RAW, Manual Exposure Blending, Nested Layering, Creating Compound Selections, Luminosity Masking, Color Correction, Detail Enhancement, Sharpening and Finishing. 

Click the link for details and if you have any questions, be sure to let me know. Also, make sure to sign up for the conference too! It’s going to be a great one! 

Hope to see you there!
