Top Computer Vision Datasets Open-Sourced At CVPR 2020

#artificialintelligence

A good dataset serves as the backbone of an Artificial Intelligence system. Data assists in various ways as it helps understand how the system is performing, understand meaning insights and others. At the premier annual Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference (CVPR 2020), several datasets have been open-sourced in order to help the community achieve higher accuracies and insights. Below here we have listed the top 10 Computer Vision datasets that are open-sourced at the CVPR 2020 conference. About: FaceScape is a large-scale detailed 3D face dataset that includes 18,760 textured 3D face models, which are captured from 938 subjects and each with 20 specific expressions.

We Need a New 'Legend of Zelda' Cartoon

WIRED

The Legend of Zelda games have an amazing sense of adventure that ought to translate well to an animated series. But videogame journalist Blake J. Harris says that Nintendo's only attempt at a Zelda cartoon, in 1989, is spoiled by its unlikeable protagonist. "There was nothing that showed me that Link was loyal to anyone, or treated other people like family, or respectfully, or did things for the right reasons," Harris says in Episode 421 of the Geek's Guide to the Galaxy podcast. "So I was like, 'This guy is just a smug jerk.'" Fantasy author Erin Lindsey agrees that Link's personality completely ruins the show.


Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation

#artificialintelligence

Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation Create wow-inspiring 3D Animation and VFX Video super-fast using Cloud-Based Artificial Intelligence (AI) Tools Typically traditional and normal animation learning focusses on learning complex CGI software which are prone to be difficult for newbies to master very quickly – unless the learners are technically strong. Of course, these kind of software work through deploying traditional frame-by-frame animation methods that take a tedious amount of time to complete a short animated film of 5 minutes duration. Bring in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools into this and this will drastically change the scenario – for sure. This course is a testament of the same. This mind-blowing course titled "Space Render 1.0: Artificial Intelligence in 3D Animation" created by Digital Marketing Legend "Srinidhi Ranganathan" and Mastermind "Saranya Srinidhi will teach you cloud based tools to achieve the same extraordinary output that is stunning enough to wow your crowd in a matter of HOURS.


YouTube to let creators use Google AI to automatically reply to comments

The Independent - Tech

YouTube is rolling out its "SmartReply" technology to YouTube, meaning that comments you see on the site might not actually have been written by a human. The technology analyses messages and then uses artificial intelligence to guess what a person might want to say in response to them. Users can then select that response and post it, without ever having to write anything out for themselves. It has already appeared within Gmail and Android's Messages app, and is open to developers who can integrate it within their own app. But it is now coming to YouTube, which represents the most public place any messages written by the SmartReply software will be seen.


Researchers compile list of 1,000 words that accidentally trigger Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Researchers in Germany have compiled a list of more than 1,000 words that will inadvertently cause virtual assistants like Amazon's Alexa and Apple's Siri to become activated. Once activated, these virtual assistants create sound recordings that are later transmitted to platform holders, where they may be transcribed for quality assurance purposes or other analysis. According to the team, from Ruhr-Universität Bochum and the Max Planck Institute for Cyber Security and Privacy in Germany, this has'alarming' implications for user privacy and likely means short recordings of personal conversations could periodically end up in the hands of Amazon, Apple, Google, or Microsoft workers. Researchers in Germany tested virtual assistants like Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, and Microsoft's Cortana, and found more than 1,000 words or phrases that would inadvertently activate each device The group tested Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, Google Assistant, Microsoft Cortana, as well as three virtual assistants exclusive to the Chinese market, from Xiaomi, Baidu, and Tencent, according to a report from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum news blog. They left each virtual assistant alone in a room with a television that played dozens of hours of episodes from Game of Thrones, Modern Family, and House of Cards, with English, German, and Chinese audio tracks for each.


NEWS: Humanoid AI Robot To Take the Role of Lead Actress in an Upcoming Sci-Fi Film -- The Confessionals

#artificialintelligence

Robots are likely to replace a lot of jobs in the future, but these roles are generally well-suited to automation. For some jobs -- particularly creative professions -- it'll be much harder to simply swap in a digital employee. But as a forthcoming feature film proves, it won't be impossible. According to Hollywood Reporter, science-fiction movie b will be the first to rely on an artificially intelligent actor. Meet Erica (pictured above), a humanoid robot that will take center stage in Life Productions' $70 million picture, which tells the tale of a scientist tasked with creating perfect human DNA.

The Muslim-American teenager of Pakistani heritage, who has shape-shifting abilities, is the latest character to adopt the Ms Marvel moniker.


Identifying a melody by studying a musician's body language

#artificialintelligence

We listen to music with our ears, but also our eyes, watching with appreciation as the pianist's fingers fly over the keys and the violinist's bow rocks across the ridge of strings. When the ear fails to tell two instruments apart, the eye often pitches in by matching each musician's movements to the beat of each part. A new artificial intelligence tool developed by the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab leverages the virtual eyes and ears of a computer to separate similar sounds that are tricky even for humans to differentiate. The tool improves on earlier iterations by matching the movements of individual musicians, via their skeletal keypoints, to the tempo of individual parts, allowing listeners to isolate a single flute or violin among multiple flutes or violins. Potential applications for the work range from sound mixing, and turning up the volume of an instrument in a recording, to reducing the confusion that leads people to talk over one another on a video-conference calls.


Amazon Echo vs. Echo Dot--what's the difference?

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

Alexa is the world's most popular smart assistant and the driving force behind Amazon's beloved Echo smart speaker lineup.
