[P] Draw Together with a Neural Network • r/MachineLearning

@machinelearnbot

I find it pretty humbling if this is really as good as it gets (i.e. Brain compute endless data) even when generating such simple stuff and having all stroke data. The interpolation and predictor experiments feel like recalling brute-force memorized patterns and not really like a system that has learned something general about the world. Also the fact that one has to choose a class makes me suspicious how bad things would look without this "feature".


Facebook won't release data on political ads to researchers

Engadget

While many political scientists are itching to get their hands on data documenting how political ads on Facebook performed, the company says it won't be releasing that information. And because online advertising allows for more specific demographic targeting than other methods, getting information on how ads changed across demographics is information that academics think would boost transparency. But Facebook wants to keep their policies consistent, which means no exception will be made for political ads. Sherman added that Facebook was open to hearing research proposals, but changes weren't likely to be made.

How artificial intelligence is enhancing recruiters

#artificialintelligence

Many articles and blog post have been written about the impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning on the recruitment and talent acquisition industry. In January we started testing Pocket Recruiter - an artificial intelligent matching engine - within Advanced Resource Managers (ARM), a UK based, STEM focused recruitment consultancy. In the blog post "Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest matching engine of them all" I explained how we chose Pocket Recruiter and the initial results it delivered for the automotive desk. Once you have seen an impact like this there is no going back: By the beginning of June the entire company will be using Pocket Recruiter and their performance will be augmented through artificial intelligence and machine learning.


Artificial intelligence and the coming health revolution - The Express Tribune

And bots, or automated programs, are likely to play a key role in finding cures for some of the most difficult-to-treat diseases and conditions. Facebook's AI assistant M to offer suggestions during Messenger chat Amazon meanwhile offers medical advice through applications on its voice-activated artificial assistant Alexa. When IBM's Watson computing system won the TV game show Jeopardy in 2011, "there were a lot of folks in health care who said that is the same process doctors use when they try to understand health care," said Anil Jain, chief medical officer of Watson Health. Research firm CB Insights this year identified 106 digital health startups applying machine learning and predictive analytics "to reduce drug discovery times, provide virtual assistance to patients, and diagnose ailments by processing medical images."


Learning about the world through video – twentybn – Medium

#artificialintelligence

A few notable exceptions, like DeepMind's recently released Kinetics dataset, try to alleviate this by focusing on shorter clips, but since they show high-level human activities taken from YouTube videos, they fall short of representing the simplest physical object interactions that will be needed for modeling visual common sense. To generate the complex, labelled videos that neural networks need to learn, we use what we call "crowd acting". Predicting the textual labels from the videos therefore requires strong visual features that are capable of representing a wealth of physical properties of the objects and the world. The videos show human actors performing generic hand gestures in front of a webcam, such as "Swiping Left/Right," "Sliding Two Fingers Up/Down," or "Rolling Hand Forward/Backward."


US Intelligence director: "AI will replace 75 percent of spies"

#artificialintelligence

The annual conference, hosted by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation, brings together technologists, soldiers, and intelligence professionals to discuss national security threats, changes in technology, and data collection and processing. The message he's sending to workers at the agency is that the goal of automation "isn't to get rid of you -- it's there to elevate you.… In Cardillo's eyes, the profession of geospatial intelligence – monitoring and exploiting commercial and proprietary video and imagery feeds, such as those available from global satellite surveillance company Planet – is on the precipice of a data explosion similar to when the internet took off. At that point, the National Security Agency (NSA), which is responsible for collecting and analysing digital communications, had to figure out ways to vacuum up and glean specific conclusions from an explosion of communications traveling back and forth on the web.

Why "How many jobs will be killed by AI?" is the wrong question

#artificialintelligence

Job growth has continued because there has been a rapid rise in service sector physical jobs like home health aide or short order cook. A UBI is thus both less targeted and more expensive that the EITC, but the real problem is that a UBI doesn't give people any clear reason to get off the sidelines of the economy. Tech progress has changed our economy a lot over the past generation, and will change it even more quickly in the years to come. Instead of trying to prepare for a jobless future, we should instead be preparing for one that's a turbocharged version of what we already have: a job creation engine that has shifted into a lower gear, and a large number of people tempted to sit on the sidelines rather than contributing their skills to the economy.


YouTube Adds Machine Learning To Comments, Rebuilds Its Desktop Creator Studio

The all-new YouTube Creator Studio -- which the company is renaming YouTube Studio -- will still feature a suite of channel management tools aimed to make creators' lives easier. Capping off the slew of updates it unveiled this year at VidCon, YouTube announced at a session on Saturday evening that it is rebuilding its Creator Studio on desktops and revamping comments with new machine learning technology.
