Google’s AI is scary good at depicting what’s in your photos http://tnw.me/ofCxnHY
Watch out IBM Watson, Google has its own 'Show and Tell' AI and it's getting scary good at depicting what's in your photos.

This post presents WaveNet, a deep generative model of raw audio waveforms. We show that WaveNets are able to generate speech which mimics any human voice and which sounds more natural than the best existing Text-to-Speech systems, reducing the gap with human performance by over 50%. We also demonstrate that the same network can be used to synthesize other audio signals such as music, and present some striking samples of automatically generate...

A microchip containing one thousand independent programmable processors has been designed by a team at the UC Davis Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The energy-efficient “KiloCore” chip has a maximum computation rate of 1.78 trillion instructions per second and contains 621 million transistors.

DECOUPLED NEURAL INTERFACES USING SYNTHETIC GRADIENTS

Quite a few people think this is an important step in ML.

This post introduces some of our latest research in progressing the capabilities and training procedures of neural networks called Decoupled Neural Interfaces using Synthetic Gradients. This work gives us a way to allow neural networks to communicate, to learn to send messages between themselves, in a decoupled, scalable manner paving the way for multiple neural networks to communicate with each other or improving the long term temporal dependency of recurrent networks. This is achieved by using a model to approximate error gradients, rather than by computing error gradients explicitly with backpropagation. The rest of this post assumes some familiarity with neural networks and how to train them. If you’re new to this area we highly recommend Nando de Freitas lecture series on Youtube on deep learning and neural networks.

One of my favourite graphs of all time. Swear words per language subreddit ;) Why is anyone surprised by this?

As you relax and let your mind drift aimlessly, you might remember a pleasant vacation, an angry confrontation in traffic or maybe the loss of a loved one.

With new neural network architectures popping up every now and then, it’s hard to keep track of them all. Knowing all the abbreviations being thrown around (DCIGN, BiLSTM, DCGAN, anyone?) can be a bit overwhelming at first. So I decided to compose a cheat sheet containing many of those architectures. Most of these are neural networks, some are completely …

IBM and marketing company The Drum just announced that the AI Watson was able to edit an entire magazine on its own. This showcases the computing potential that AI has in an increasing number of fields.

Fisch ist in der Speisekarte als "ohne Fleisch" angeschrieben. Es handelt sich jedoch um echten Fisch der nicht auf Bäumen und Sträuchern wächst. Die Speisen sind also falsch deklariert.

Total super Salatauswahl. Ideal für Menschen die sich gesund und/oder vegetarisch/vegan ernähren wollen. Preise sind für die Gegend und die frischen Zutaten durchaus angemessen. Allerdings ist das Lokal wohl nichts für Menschen, die das Schnitzel für die Hauptspeise und den Salat für die Beilage halten.
