Training a recommender model of 100 trillions parameters on Google Cloud


A recommender system is an important component of Internet services today: billion dollar revenue businesses are directly driven by recommendation services at big tech companies. The current landscape of production recommender systems is dominated by deep learning based approaches, where an embedding layer is first adopted to map extremely large-scale ID type features to fixed-length embedding vectors; then the embeddings are leveraged by complicated neural network architectures to generate recommendations. The continuing advancement of recommender models is often driven by increasing model sizes--several models have been previously released with billion parameters up to even trillion very recently. Every jump in the model capacity has brought in significant improvement on quality. The era of 100 trillion parameters is just around the corner.

Deepfake attacks can easily trick facial recognition


In brief Miscreants can easily steal someone else's identity by tricking live facial recognition software using deepfakes, according to a new report. Sensity AI, a startup focused on tackling identity fraud, carried out a series of pretend attacks. Engineers scanned the image of someone from an ID card, and mapped their likeness onto another person's face. Sensity then tested whether they could breach live facial recognition systems by tricking them into believing the pretend attacker is a real user. So-called "liveness tests" try to authenticate identities in real-time, relying on images or video streams from cameras like face recognition used to unlock mobile phones, for example.

Traditional vs Deep Learning Algorithms in the Telecom Industry -- Cloud Architecture and Algorithm Categorization


The unprecedented growth of mobile devices, applications and services have placed the utmost demand on mobile and wireless networking infrastructure. Rapid research and development of 5G systems have found ways to support mobile traffic volumes, real-time extraction of fine-grained analytics, and agile management of network resources, so as to maximize user experience. Moreover inference from heterogeneous mobile data from distributed devices experiences challenges due to computational and battery power limitations. ML models employed at the edge-servers are constrained to light-weight to boost model performance by achieving a trade-off between model complexity and accuracy. Also, model compression, pruning, and quantization are largely in place.

Apple's former machine learning director reportedly joins Google's DeepMind team


An Apple executive who oversaw Apple's machine learning and artificial intelligence efforts has left the company in recent weeks, citing its stringent return-to-office policy, according to Bloomberg. Ian Goodfellow is now reportedly joining Google's DeepMind team as an individual contributor, a few years after he left the tech giant for Apple. Based on his LinkedIn profile, Goodfellow worked in different capacities for Google since 2013, including as a research scientist and as a software engineering intern. Bloomberg says the former Apple exec referenced the policy in a note about his departure addressed to staff members. In April, Apple announced that it was going to start implementing its return-to-office policy on May 23rd and will be requiring employees to work in its offices at least three times a week.

Designing societally beneficial Reinforcement Learning (RL) systems


Deep reinforcement learning (DRL) is transitioning from a research field focused on game playing to a technology with real-world applications. Notable examples include DeepMind's work on controlling a nuclear reactor or on improving Youtube video compression, or Tesla attempting to use a method inspired by MuZero for autonomous vehicle behavior planning. But the exciting potential for real world applications of RL should also come with a healthy dose of caution – for example RL policies are well known to be vulnerable to exploitation, and methods for safe and robust policy development are an active area of research. At the same time as the emergence of powerful RL systems in the real world, the public and researchers are expressing an increased appetite for fair, aligned, and safe machine learning systems. The focus of these research efforts to date has been to account for shortcomings of datasets or supervised learning practices that can harm individuals.
