r/MachineLearning - [R] Depth Maps Inpainting with GANs

#artificialintelligence

We proposed a GAN network earlier to deal with disparity data inpainting and object removal in a paper published in the Intelligent Vehicles Symposium 2019 (IV'19) (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8814157). Now we published on arXiv a more in-depth analysis of our latest network version, which is also open-sourced. Third column the objects removed using the Contextual Attention network; Last column our results removing the same objects.


The convergence of RPA and AI can boost Business Process Automation

#artificialintelligence

Business Process Automation or BPA, aims to automate an enterprise process using technology; the main goal is to optimize process execution, saving time and costs. The injection of technology in workflow helps to fulfil work better, boosting the effectiveness of enterprises. In the past few years we've seen the advancement of a new technology called Robotic Process Automation, or RPA, used to automate recurring human software-tasks like responding to an email, clicking on some buttons or filling some web forms; something like a digital monkey that emulates human actions. In fact, the most common RPA is based on a registration of tasks (press this button -- if this then that -- fill this form etc) and the subsequent emulations of those tasks. This monkey has captured the interest of CIOs due to the enormous potential to cut operators' costs in an environment with repetitive tasks.


Getting Serious About M&A and Artificial Intelligence Seal Blog

#artificialintelligence

Technology will drive efficiency in terms of hours, but to get to that, you must invest and develop a tech platform. It would be folly to think it will not have an impact. If your organization hasn't integrated Artificial Intelligence (AI) into its M&A practice, you're behind the curve. In fact, this quote from Deloitte is not from this year, but 2016. Now, as we approach 2020, it is clear to see that AI is essential to an advanced, efficient M&A practice.


Nuro and Walmart Partner for Autonomous Grocery Delivery in Houston

#artificialintelligence

Walmart and Nuro announced a collaboration today in which the two companies will pilot autonomous grocery delivery in Houston, TX via Nuro's self-driving pod-like vehicles. In the coming months, the autonomous delivery service will be available to Houston customers who have opted into the program. The service will use R2, Nuro's custom-built delivery vehicle that carries only products with no onboard driver or passengers, and autonomous Toyota Priuses, all powered by Nuro's proprietary self-driving software and hardware. Nuro's R2 pods are low-speed vehicles roughly half the size of regular cars. There are two compartments for cargo, and literally no room for a driver.


Amazon is injecting Alexa with more artificial intelligence than ever

#artificialintelligence

For starters, Amazon says it's been using neural networks to make Alexa's voice sound more human when it translates text (like your text messages) into speech. Rohit Prasad, who heads up Alexa machine learning and artificial intelligence, told me that this technology has allowed Amazon to take a totally different approach to generating speech. In the past, Alexa's algorithms broke down language into word parts or vocal sounds, then tried to string them together as smoothly as possible. But it always sounded somewhat choppy and robotic. Now, Amazon is using neural networks that can generate whole sentences of text in real time, says Prasad.


Predictions for AI and ML in 2020 - Information Age

#artificialintelligence

There have been concerns surrounding the prospective security of human jobs as AI and ML become more advanced, but do experts believe that this kind of tech will overhaul workplaces entirely, and what will the AI evolution in 2020 mean for other developing technologies, like 5G? For some, it's important not to get carried away by the idea that AI will take over all aspects of culture anytime soon, and we should instead prepare for more subtle but nevertheless practical uses of it within our immediate environment. Investment in sustainable technology is imperative if we are to halt and reverse some of the damage we have done to our planet. Data scientist at Hitachi Vantara, Dr Anya Rumyantseva, said: "Artificial intelligence isn't just something debated by techies or sci-fi writers anymore – it's increasingly creeping into our collective cultural consciousness, but there's a lot of emphasis on the negative. "While those big picture questions around ethics cannot and should not be ignored, in the near-term we won't be dealing with the super-AI you see in the movies.


Utilizing Generative Adversial Networks (GAN's) - Kwork Innovations

#artificialintelligence

If you want to create convincing output for some purpose, something that isn't real but seems to be, how do you do it? Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are an approach which holds a lot of promise. They provide a form of unsupervised learning, where a system can improve its performance over time without human feedback. Imagine that you're an artist hoping to get rich by creating fake "previously undiscovered" Rembrandts. Your works have to be good enough to fool the experts.


Machine Learning at the Edge: Using HLS to Optimize Power and Performance

#artificialintelligence

Moving machine learning to the edge has critical requirements on power and performance. Using off-the-shelf solutions is not practical. CPUs are too slow, GPUs/TPUs are expensive and consume too much power, and even generic machine learning accelerators can be overbuilt and are not optimal for power. In this paper, learn about creating new power/memory efficient hardware architectures to meet next-generation machine learning hardware demands at the edge.

Artificial Intelligence Is Superseding Well-Paying Wall Street Jobs

#artificialintelligence

The New York Stock Exchange floor is devoid of humans and runs primarily on technology conducting ... [ ] the electronic trading activities. We've been told that there is nothing to worry about artificial intelligence, robots and technology. New technologies will only replace mundane, repetitive jobs and free up workers to do more meaningful work, claims the media and top management consulting firms. Last week, the House Financial Services Committee's Task Force on Artificial Intelligence conducted a meeting with university academics and Wall Street financial services professionals to discuss the impact of AI on trading, robo-advisory, market surveillance and other activities within the financial services sector. To set the tone, the report by Wells Fargo predicting 200,000 banking jobs in the U.S. will be lost over the next decade--due to the introduction of new technologies--was cited by the chairman of the AI Task Force, Rep. Bill Foster (D-Ill).
