Machine Learning


While there’s no doubt that machine learning (ML) can be a great tool for businesses of all shapes and sizes, actually building ML models can seem daunting at first. Cloud AutoML—Google Cloud’s suite of products—provides tools and functionality to help you build ML models that are tailored to your specific needs, without needing deep ML …

Artificial intelligence is already powering much of the technology helping to drive the modern economy. AI is now an essential part of how we use the internet but can also be found in stock exchanges, advanced factories and automated warehouses. It is starting to drive our cars and even vacuum our floors. And yet only …

Researchers have developed a method for helping robots plan for multi-step tasks by constructing abstract representations of the world around them. Their study is a step toward building robots that can think and act more like people. Planning is a monumentally difficult thing for robots, largely because of how they perceive and interact with the …

Word embeddings—an algorithmic technique that can map relationships and associations between words—can measure changes in gender and ethnic stereotypes over the past century in the United States. Researchers analyzed large databases of American books, newspapers, and other texts and looked at how those linguistic changes correlated with actual US Census demographic data and major social …

Now that humans have programmed computers to learn, we want to know exactly what they’ve learned and how they make decisions after their learning process is complete. The answers to such questions could shed light on our own decision-making processes. Kate Saenko, an associate professor of computer science at Boston University, asked humans to look …

Researchers working in The N.1 Institute for Health at the National University Of Singapore (NUS), led by Assistant Professor Camilo Libedinsky from NUS Psychology, and Senior Lecturer Shih-Cheng Yen from the Innovation and Design Programme at NUS Engineering, have discovered that a population of neurons in the brain’s frontal lobe contain stable short-term memory information within dynamically-changing neural …

A new approach could make it easier to train computer for “extreme classification problems” like speech translation and answering general questions, researchers say. The divide-and-conquer approach to machine learning can slash the time and computational resources required. Online shoppers typically string together a few words to search for the product they want, but in a world …

A new technique can predict the final size of wildfires from the moment of ignition, researchers report. Built around a machine learning algorithm, the model can help forecast whether a wildfire will be small, medium, or large by the time it has run its course—knowledge useful to those in charge of allocating scarce firefighting resources. …

TF Dev Summit ’19 | TensorFlow.js 1.0 TensorFlow.js A JavaScript library for training and deploying ML models in the browser and on Node.js. In this talk we highlight the major capabilities of the library as well as give a development update on the major changes since the project was launched in 2018. Speakers: Yannick Assogba, …

Android Dev Summit 2019 | On-device ML: Tackling Complex Use Cases with ML Kit ML Kit makes it easy to integrate ML powered solutions into your apps, either through our turn-key Vision and Natural Language processing APIs or with your own custom TF Lite models. Not only can you easily tackle singular tasks like Text …
