If you are looking for an answer to the question What is Artificial Intelligence? and you only have a minute, then here's the definition the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence offers on its home page: "the scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behavior and their embodiment in machines."
However, if you are fortunate enough to have more than a minute, then please get ready to embark upon an exciting journey exploring AI (but beware, it could last a lifetime) …

Neuromorphic computing is a growing computer engineering approach that models and develops computing devices inspired by the human brain. Neuromorphic engineering focuses on using biology-inspired algorithms to design semiconductor chips that will behave similarly to a brain neuron and then work in this new architecture. Neuromorphic computing adds abilities to think creatively, recognize things they've never seen, and react accordingly to machines. Unlike AIs, the human brain is fascinating at understanding cause and effect and adapts to changes swiftly. However, even the slightest change in their environment renders AI models trained with traditional machine learning methods inoperable.
BulletArm is designed around two key principles: reproducibility and extensibility. We aim to encourage more direct comparisons between robotic learning methods by providing a set of standardized benchmark tasks in simulation alongside a collection of baseline algorithms. The framework consists of 31 different manipulation tasks of varying difficulty, ranging from simple reaching and picking tasks to more realistic tasks such as bin packing and pallet stacking. In addition to the provided tasks, BulletArm has been built to facilitate easy expansion and provides a suite of tools to assist users when adding new tasks to the framework. Moreover, we introduce a set of five benchmarks and evaluate them using a series of state-of-the-art baseline algorithms.
This paper examines the use of risk models to predict the timing and location of wildfires caused by electricity infrastructure. Our data include historical ignition and wire-down points triggered by grid infrastructure collected between 2015 to 2019 in Pacific Gas Electricity territory along with various weather, vegetation, and very high resolution data on grid infrastructure including location, age, materials. With these data we explore a range of machine learning methods and strategies to manage training data imbalance. The best area under the receiver operating characteristic we obtain is 0.776 for distribution feeder ignitions and 0.824 for transmission line wire-down events, both using the histogram-based gradient boosting tree algorithm (HGB) with under-sampling. We then use these models to identify which information provides the most predictive value.
As babies, we babble and imitate our way to learning languages. We don't start off reading raw text, which requires fundamental knowledge and understanding about the world, as well as the advanced ability to interpret and infer descriptions and relationships. Rather, humans begin our language journey slowly, by pointing and interacting with our environment, basing our words and perceiving their meaning through the context of the physical and social world. Eventually, we can craft full sentences to communicate complex ideas. Similarly, when humans begin learning and translating into another language, the incorporation of other sensory information, like multimedia, paired with the new and unfamiliar words, like flashcards with images, improves language acquisition and retention. Then, with enough practice, humans can accurately translate new, unseen sentences in context without the accompanying media; however, imagining a picture based on the original text helps.
Abstract: Diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) is a promising method to analyze the subtle changes in the tissue structure. However, the lengthy acquisition time is a major limitation in the clinical application of dMRI. Different image acquisition techniques such as parallel imaging, compressed sensing, has shortened the prolonged acquisition time but creating high-resolution 3D dMRI slices still requires a significant amount of time. In this study, we have shown that high-resolution 3D dMRI can be reconstructed from the highly undersampled k-space and q-space data using a Kernel LowRank method. Abstract: In this work we introduce KERNELIZED TRANSFORMER, a generic, scalable, data driven framework for learning the kernel function in Transformers.
Abstract: Analysis of human affect plays a vital role in human-computer interaction (HCI) systems. Due to the difficulty in capturing large amounts of real-life data, most of the current methods have mainly focused on controlled environments, which limit their application scenarios. To tackle this problem, we propose our solution based on the ensemble learning method. Specifically, we formulate the problem as a classification task, and then train several expression classification models with different types of backbones -- ResNet, EfficientNet and InceptionNet. After that, the outputs of several models are fused via model ensemble method to predict the final results.
Document understanding is a key business process in the data-driven economy since documents are central to knowledge discovery and business insights. Converting documents into a machine-processable format is a particular challenge here due to their huge variability in formats and complex structure. Accordingly, many algorithms and machine-learning methods emerged to solve particular tasks such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), layout analysis, table-structure recovery, figure understanding, etc. We observe the adoption of such methods in document understanding solutions offered by all major cloud providers. Yet, publications outlining how such services are designed and optimized to scale in the cloud are scarce.
