...Some researchers have been trying to lessen the size and power demands of deep-learning AI with dedicated hardware that’s specially designed to run these algorithms. But even those processors still use over 50 milliwatts of power—far too much for a micro mote. The Michigan group brought down the power requirements by redesigning the chip architecture, for example by situating four processing elements within the memory (in this case, SRAM) to minimize data movement.

Google Genomics (http://goo.gl/q4ot5G) has released a dataset that allows you to see how genetic variation is shared among individuals in 26 populations across the world. A Google Dataflow (https://goo.gl/DBRU1W) pipeline computed an analysis on over 5 trillion pairs of variants for each of 31 population groupings of the 2,504 individuals in the 1000 Genomes data set.

To learn more about how Google technologies can be used to to study genomic data, check out the new Linkage Disequilibrium (https://goo.gl/p4Q2bx) data sets at http://goo.gl/A4Od2D and the Jupyter (iPython) notebooks at http://goo.gl/xLh6Sk.

Inspired by the recent remarkable advances of deep neural networks in computer vision, we have recently launched an improved YouTube "thumbnailer" algorithm that uses neural networks to automatically select the best image to showcase a video’s content. Head over to the Google Research blog to learn how it works.

The "world's first driverless bus" has been tested on public roads in China. "With a distance of 32.6 km, the intercity road from Zhengzhou to Kaifeng has 26 traffic lights in total. Despite this and busy traffic, Yutong driverless bus successfully completed a series of highly complex driving acts, such as automatic lane change, overtake, and responding traffic lights. Without any human assistance, the bus arrived at its destination with its highest speed reaching 68 km/h (42 mph)."
