How AI Is Impacting Operations At LinkedIn


LinkedIn has been at the cutting edge of AI for years and uses AI in many ways users may not be aware of. I recently had the opportunity to talk to Igor Perisic, Chief Data Officer (CDO) and VP of Engineering at LinkedIn to learn more about the evolution of AI at LinkedIn, how it's being applied to daily activities, how worldwide data regulations impact the company, and some unique insight into the changing AI-related work landscape and job roles. Very early on at LinkedIn, data was identified as one of the company's core differentiating factors. Another differentiating factor was a core company value of "members first" (clarity, consistency, and control of how member data is used) and their vision to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. As LinkedIn began finding more and more ways to weave AI into their products and services, they also recognized the importance of ensuring all employees were well-equipped to work with AI as needed in their jobs.

YouTube to let creators use Google AI to automatically reply to comments

The Independent - Tech

YouTube is rolling out its "SmartReply" technology to YouTube, meaning that comments you see on the site might not actually have been written by a human. The technology analyses messages and then uses artificial intelligence to guess what a person might want to say in response to them. Users can then select that response and post it, without ever having to write anything out for themselves. It has already appeared within Gmail and Android's Messages app, and is open to developers who can integrate it within their own app. But it is now coming to YouTube, which represents the most public place any messages written by the SmartReply software will be seen.

CV is a nascent market but it contains a plethora of both big technology companies and disruptors.

New technique keeps your online photos safe from facial recognition algorithms - Help Net Security


In one second, the human eye can only scan through a few photographs. Computers, on the other hand, are capable of performing billions of calculations in the same amount of time. With the explosion of social media, images have become the new social currency on the internet. Today, Facebook and Instagram can automatically tag a user in photos, while Google Photos can group one's photos together via the people present in those photos using Google's own image recognition technology. Dealing with threats against digital privacy today, therefore, extends beyond just stopping humans from seeing the photos, but also preventing machines from harvesting personal data from images. The frontiers of privacy protection need to be extended now to include machines.

Blender Bot -- Part 3: The Many Architectures


We have been looking into Facebook's open-sourced conversational offering, Blender Bot. In Part-1 we went over in detail about the DataSets used in the pre-training and fine-tuning of it and the failure cases as well as limitations of Blender. And in Part-2 we studied the more generic problem setting of "Multi-Sentence Scoring", the Transformer architectures used for such a task and learnt about the Poly-Encoders in particular -- which will be used to provide the encoder representations in Blender. In this 3rd and final part, we return from our respite with Poly-Encoders, back to Blender. We shall go over the different Model Architectures, their respective training objectives, the Evaluation methods and performance of Blender in comparison to Meena.
