Modeling and Language Extensions

AI Magazine

Answer set programming (ASP) has emerged as an approach to declarative problem solving based on the stable model semantics for logic programs. The basic idea is to represent a computational problem by a logic program, formulating constraints in terms of rules, such that its answer sets correspond to problem solutions. Compact problem representations take advantage of genuine modeling features of ASP, including (first-order) variables, negation by default, and recursion. In this article, we demonstrate the ASP methodology on two example scenarios, illustrating basic as well as advanced modeling and solving concepts.



They are labeling your images using a Deep ConvNet built by Facebook's FAIR team. On one hand, this is really great. It improves accessibility for blind users who depend on screen readers which are only capable of processing text. But I think a lot of internet users don't realize the amount of information that is now routinely extracted from photographs. Facebook (and Google, Apple, Amazon, etc) can easily tell from your photographs if you have a pet dog, if you collect cameras, if you play golf, if you have children, or if you are just really into sunglasses.

Deep learning transforms the drug discovery process in collaboration between Insilico Medicine and Life Extension


In March 2016 Insilico Medicine initiated a research collaboration with Life Extension to apply advanced bioinformatic methods and deep learning algorithms to screen for naturally occurring compounds that may slow down or even reverse the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging. Today Life Extension (LE) launched a new line of nutraceuticals called GEROPROTECTTM, and the first product in the series called Ageless CellTM combines some of the natural compounds that were shortlisted by Insilico Medicine's algorithms and are generally recognized as safe (GRAS). "Life Extension's mission is to extend the healthy human lifespan; and as such, we are focused on identifying natural products with critical health and wellness properties," said Andrew G. Swick, PhD, senior vice president of scientific affairs, discovery research and product development for Life Extension. "Our collaboration with Insilico Medicine fostered a novel approach to formulating anti-aging supplements utilizing artificial intelligence and sophisticated biologically-inspired algorithms and resulted in the very first AI formulated supplement," Swick said. The global nutraceuticals market was valued at US$165.62 billion in 2014 by Transparency Market Research and is expected to reach US$278.96 billion by 2021.

Packers sign LT David Bakhtiari to contract extension

U.S. News

FILE - In this Nov. 8, 2015, file photo, Green Bay Packers' David Bakhtiari (69) gestures on the sidelines against the Carolina Panthers during the first half of an NFL football game in Charlotte, N.C. Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari has signed a contract extension to stay in Green Bay, and a person familiar with the talks says it's a four-year deal worth up to 51.67 million. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, because details of the extension have not been announced.
