Microsoft Achieves Human Parity on Chinese-English Machine Translation

by Roland Meertens Follow 7 Followers on  Mar 15, 2018

Microsoft created a translation algorithm that translates Chinese sentences to English as well as human translators do. Translating Chinese sentences into English has been difficult in the past. Thanks to neural machine translation, a technique that created amazing results in the last couple of years, Microsoft got their machine translated sentences on par with human translated sentences.

Autonomous Vehicles Became Better at Predicting Lane-Changes

by Roland Meertens Follow 7 Followers on  Feb 07, 2018

Researchers created an algorithm that allows self-driving cars to predict lane-changes of the surrounding cars. The system works by using a deep-learning technique called Long Short-Term Memories (LSTMs). Although the most likely scenario on the highway is that every car stays in its own lane, their algorithm was able to slightly improve on this baseline prediction.

How Apple Uses Neural Networks for Object Detection in Point Clouds

by Roland Meertens Follow 7 Followers on  Nov 28, 2017

Apple invented a neural network configuration that can segmentate objects in point clouds obtained with a LIDAR sensor. Recently Apple joined the field of autonomous vehicles. Apple has now created an end-to-end neural network to segmentate objects in point clouds. This approach does not rely on any hand-crafted features or other machine learning algorithms other than neural networks.

Start-up Vicarious Defeats CAPTCHA Security with AI Inspired by Brain’s Visual Cortex

by Roland Meertens Follow 7 Followers on  Oct 30, 2017

Vicarious improved on neural network capable of solving CAPTCHA challenges using a novel network layout called Recursive Cortical Network. In contrast to a normal neural network, which starts without any knowledge before training, a RCN starts with knowledge of contours and surfaces. This prior knowledge facilitates model building and generalisability.

Q&A with Hillery Hunter: IBM Reduces Neural Network Training Times by Efficiently Scaling Training

by Roland Meertens Follow 7 Followers on  Sep 22, 2017

In August 2017 IBM announced it broke the training record for image recognition capabilities. IBM research reduced their training time for the neural network layout called "ResNet-50" to only 50 minutes. On another network layout called ResNet-101, they obtained an accuracy record of 33.8 percent. Using 256 GPUs they trained their neural network on a dataset containing 7.5 million images.

Facebook Transitioning to Neural Machine Translation

by Alex Giamas Follow 9 Followers on  Aug 17, 2017

Facebook recently announced the global rollout of NMT. Switching from phrase based translation models to NMT has been rolled out for more than 2,000 translation directions and 4.5 billion translations per day. According to Facebook this provides an 11% increase in BLEU score. We will discuss how it was achieved, what it means for machine generated translation and how it fares against competition.
