Google updates remote learning tools on Meet and Classroom

Engadget

It's back-to-school season, and because of the coronavirus pandemic, many students will be hitting the books virtually this year. Consequently, Google for Education has announced a robust set of updates that will enhance Google Meet, Google Classroom and other aspects of the service. The updates were unveiled at Google's The Anywhere School event -- but if you missed the product keynote, here's what you need to know about Google's new tools to facilitate learning in 2020. Google Meet has already seen several updates in the recent months, and updates that will make the app more accessible to teachers and students are still to come. Soon, meetings will not be able to start without a teacher present.


Dimensionality Reduction in Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Dimensionality reduction, or dimension reduction, is the transformation of data from a high-dimensional space into a low-dimensional space so that the low-dimensional representation retains some meaningful properties of the original data.


Machine Learning and Signal Processing

#artificialintelligence

Signal processing has given us a bag of tools that have been refined and put to very good use in the last fifty years. There is autocorrelation, convolution, Fourier and wavelet transforms, adaptive filtering via Least Mean Squares (LMS) or Recursive Least Squares (RLS), linear estimators, compressed sensing and gradient descent, to mention a few. Different tools are used to solve different problems, and sometimes, we use a combination of these tools to build a system to process signals. Machine Learning, or the deep neural networks, is much simpler to get used to because the underlying mathematics is fairly straightforward regardless of what network architecture we use. The complexity and the mystery of neural networks lie in the amount of data they process to get the fascinating results we currently have.

Huyn Kim is the CEO and Co-Founder of Superb AI, a company that provides a new generation machine learning data platform to AI teams so that they can build better AI in less time. The Superb AI Suite is an enterprise SaaS platform built to help ML engineers, product teams, researchers and data annotators create efficient training data workflows. What initially attracted you to the field of AI, Data Science and Robotics? As an undergraduate majoring in Biomedical Engineering at Duke, I was passionate about genetics and how we can engineer our DNA to cure diseases or create genetically engineered organisms. I remember one wet-lab experiment distinctly that kept failing for like 6 months straight. The most frustrating part of it was that there was a lot of repetitive manual work, and in hindsight that was probably the root of some many potential errors.


Primates have evolved larger voice boxes than other mammals to help with social interactions

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Humans and other primates have evolved'significantly larger' voice boxes than other mammals to help with social interactions, a new study shows. Compared with other mammals such as cats, the voice box, or larynx, of primates such as gorillas and chimpanzees is more than a third larger in relation to their body size. They also found that primates' voice boxes undergo faster rates of evolution, and are diverse in function and more variable in size. Researchers made CT-scans of specimens from 55 different species, including primates and other mammals, and produced 3D computer models of their larynges. The research claims to be the first large-scale study into the evolution of the larynx, where tissue vibrations produce sounds for vocal communication.

Zignal Labs Selects Lexalytics to Provide AI-Based NLP

#artificialintelligence

Lexalytics, the leader in "words-first" machine learning and artificial intelligence, announced that Zignal Labs, creator of the Impact Intelligence platform for measuring the evolution of opinion in real time, has chosen Lexalytics to extend its natural language processing (NLP) and text analytics capabilities to help marketers, communicators and analysts gain a greater understanding of perceptions across traditional and social media. Zignal Labs has incorporated Lexalytics' on-premises Salience engine to analyze media in real time, across multiple industries, including financial services, technology, healthcare, consumer products, sports, entertainment and more. With Lexalytics, Zignal's customers can understand what people are saying about products, services or current events, categorize discussions into separate groupings and themes, and evaluate the sentiment of media coverage across multiple languages. "With more people working from home, and the increase in online discourse caused by the COVID-19 crisis and social justice movements, we've seen an explosion in the amount of content we're analyzing for our customers in all parts of the world and had a need to expand our NLP capabilities for international languages," said Jonathan Dodson, CTO of Zignal Labs. "We chose Lexalytics because out of all of the market leaders we evaluated, they have the best combination of accuracy and performance, breadth of foreign language capabilities, scale and price, as well as an on-premises solution, offering maximum tuning and features while keeping data processing costs to a minimum."
