reads "the reality of autonomous car technology is that the easy parts of have yet to be proven safe, and the hard parts have yet to be proven possible", and agrees.

Boston Dynamics shows us the future of robotics, today.

Science is a difficult endeavor,
it requires regularly revisiting our assumptions and though processes.

This work asks some fascinating questions.
 
There is a popular belief in neuroscience that we are primarily data limited, that producing large, multimodal, and complex datasets will, enabled by data analysis algorithms, lead to fundamental insights into the way the brain processes information.…

Follow-up read, https://aeon.co/essays/your-brain-does-not-process-information-and-it-is-not-a-computer which I think it is quite wrong, but an interesting discussion starter nonetheless.

There is amazing, there is incredible, and there is Boston Dynamics.

Because selfies and self-aiming drones was not enough.
Here comes the centriphone !

It took me much longer than expected,
but I finally got around updating the "Who is the best at X ?" listing.
The updates are mainly on the classification task.

As always feel free to submit new entries, or send suggestions for improvement.

now hosts 200+ results across multiple datasets.

I find these results both fascinating and uncomfortably awkward.

It looks like it's whitewashing people?

OCaml strikes back !
After 20 years of maturation,
this could be the breakthrough moment for this language.

It is my pleasure to announce that the Cityscapes dataset is now available for download (after a simple registration step).
http://www.cityscapes-dataset.net

Cityscapes is a new large-scale dataset of diverse stereo video sequences recorded in street scenes from 50 different cities (central Europe), with high quality semantic labelling and instance segmentation annotations for 5 000 frames in addition to a larger set of 20 000 weakly annotated frames.

The dataset is the result of a collaboration between Daimler, MPI-Inf, and TU Darmstadt; and from the heroic efforts of +Marius Cordts and +Mohamed Omran plus an armada of annotators.

Let us know in the issues tracker if you encounter any problem using the data. https://github.com/mcordts/cityscapesScripts

We hope that this new dataset will push forward the state of the art in semantic labelling and instance segmentation.

+Rodrigo Benenson - I can advocate for making one as a ride along while we do other flying. Not sure how to find the "customers".

"Another bizarre feature of our early prototype was its propensity to respond with “I love you” to seemingly anything."
