Microsoft Will Soon Kill Flash on Windows 10 for Good

WIRED

The most recent big iOS update, which makes it easier to opt out of ads that track you across apps and web sites, has sent the digital marketing industry into a bit of a tizzy. That includes Facebook, which has been telling users that tracking helps keep its services "free of charge." Facebook is doing just fine, and choosing to preserve your privacy is not going to result in an Instagram service fee. Elsewhere in social media privacy news, Twitter rolled out a so-called Tip Jar this week that lets you send money to your favorite users. But it failed to vet how PayPal handles payments, potentially exposing users' home or email addresses when they send or receive a tip.


Computer vision inches towards 'common sense' with Facebook's latest research – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is capable of doing all sorts of things as long as you have the data to teach it how. That's not always easy, and researchers are always looking for a way to add a bit of "common sense" to AI so you don't have to show it 500 pictures of a cat before it gets it. Facebook's newest research takes a big step towards reducing the data bottleneck. The company's formidable AI research division has been working on how to advance and scale things like advanced computer vision algorithms for years now, and has made steady progress, generally shared with the rest of the research community. One interesting development Facebook has pursued in particular is what's called "semi-supervised learning."


10 Best Artificial Intelligence Stocks to Buy for 2021

#artificialintelligence

In this article we will take a look at the 10 best artificial intelligence stocks for 2021. You can skip our detailed analysis of the AI industry's outlook for 2021 and some of the major growth catalysts for AI stocks and go directly to 5 Best Artificial Intelligence Stocks for 2021. Artificial intelligence is a buzzword increasingly being used by companies around the world that seek to project themselves at the forefront of cutting-edge research that promises to transform the lives of humans. As the word loses its meaning, it is important for investors to understand what artificial intelligence is and what companies stand to gain from breakthroughs in the new technology. Market estimates suggest that the artificial intelligence industry will witness a compound annual growth of more than 40% in the first half of this decade. Artificial intelligence, in the simplest words, uses data analytics to perform tasks that would otherwise be performed by humans.


Twitter Updates its Responsible Machine Learning Initiative

#artificialintelligence

Responsible Machine Learning development is essential to extract positive outcomes from various AI and Machine Learning initiatives. These initiatives empower AI engineers, data scientists and end-users to build, analyze and utilize various AI ML applications ethically. Almost every major technology innovation company evangelizes the importance of Responsible Machine Learning development is essential to extract positive outcomes from various AI and Machine Learning initiatives. One of them is Twitter. Twitter has constantly provided updates on its ongoing AI and Machine Learning projects.


AI Image Synthesis: What The Future Holds

#artificialintelligence

Originally published at Ross Dawson. Shortly after the new year 2021, the Media Synthesis community at Reddit began to become more than usually psychedelic. The board became saturated with unearthly images depicting rivers of blood, Picasso's King Kong, a Pikachu chasing Mark Zuckerberg, Synthwave witches, acid-induced kittens, an inter-dimensional portal, the industrial revolution and the possible child of Barack Obama and Donald Trump. The bizarre images were generated by inputting short phrases into Google Colab notebooks (web pages from which a user can access the formidable machine learning resources of the search giant), and letting the trained algorithms compute possible images based on that text. In most cases, the optimal results were obtained in minutes. Various attempts at the same phrase would usually produce wildly different results. In the image synthesis field, this free-ranging facility of invention is something new; not just a bridge between the text and image domains, but an early look at comprehensive AI-driven image generation systems that don't need hyper-specific training in very limited domains (i.e. NVIDIA's landscape generation framework GauGAN [on which, more later], which can turn sketches into landscapes, but only into landscapes; or the various sketch face Pix2Pix projects, that are likewise'specialized'). Example images generated with the Big Sleep Colab notebook [12].


Edgardo Temporetti on LinkedIn: #CNNs #images #AutoML

#artificialintelligence

Understanding #CNNs are tough as it uses various filters/kernels to extracts various features from the #images, uses pooling for down scalling, uses flatten layer to convert into 1D array and uses Fully connect layer for feed forward and back-propogation.... Here's how CNN extracts the features from the images and classify the object. Check out how #AI can meet you with your forefathers and make you cry after watching them live in front of you.


Twitter Unveils Algorithmic Fairness Initiative to Offer More Transparency

#artificialintelligence

Twitter said Wednesday it was launching an initiative on "responsible machine learning" that will include reviews of algorithmic fairness on the social media platform. The California messaging service said the plan aims to offer more transparency in its artificial intelligence and tackle "the potential harmful effects of algorithmic decisions." The move comes amid heightened concerns over algorithms used by online services, which some say can promote violence or extremist content or reinforce racial or gender bias. "Responsible technological use includes studying the effects it can have over time," said a blog post by Jutta Williams and Rumman Chowdhury of Twitter's ethics and transparency team. "When Twitter uses (machine learning), it can impact hundreds of millions of tweets per day and sometimes, the way a system was designed to help could start to behave differently than was intended."


It's About Time We Broke Up Data Science

#artificialintelligence

It's highly unlikely that business owners are going to read this and begin to change their perspectives on how we define Data Science. Not because I doubt my influence or anything, but since I'm aware that the majority of my readers are at the beginning of their Data Science journey -- I really dislike the term "aspiring" -- but here is what I wish to tell you all… Stop trying to be good at everything in Data Science, and pick 1 (max 2) area's you want to specialize in and get really good at it! Let's face it... Breaking into Data Science is difficult for a number of reasons. However, I've come to a realization recently that much of the difficulty lies in the fact that the term "Data Scientist" encompasses so many different technical qualities that make it virtually impossible for one individual to meet all these criteria and stay up to date in each area -- and that's okay! I've been listening and speaking to Vin Vashishta, Chief Data Scientist and LinkedIn Top Voice 2019, and he believes that for roles to be defined better then more specialization amongst practitioners must occur.


Meet Facebook's Powerful New Image Recognition SEER A.I.

#artificialintelligence

If Facebook has an unofficial slogan, an equivalent to Google's "Don't Be Evil" or Apple's "Think Different," it is "Move Fast and Break Things." It means, at least in theory, that one should iterate to try news things and not be afraid of the possibility of failure. In 2021, however, with social media currently being blamed for a plethora of societal ills, the phrase should, perhaps, be modified to: "Move Fast and Fix Things." One of the many areas social media, not just Facebook, has been pilloried for is its spreading of certain images online. It's a challenging problem by any stretch of the imagination: Some 4,000 photo uploads are made to Facebook every single second.
