This week in AI & Machine Learning: Protecting coral reefs with computer vision, global AI ethics, Detectron Q&A, human-robot collaboration, zero-shot multitask learning, and more!

Authors note:

My last workshop of the year is tomorrow! You can join Intro to Computer Vision: Building Object Detection Models and Datasets for FREE on November 30th at 5:30 pm PST. The recording will be uploaded to our youtube channel.

My Top AI Highlight:

TensorFlow’s Kaggle Challenge to Help Protect Coral Reefs

Google’s TensorFlow is sponsoring a Kaggle challenge for developers to create a better object detection computer vision model to help protect coral reefs from harmful crown-of-thorns starfish!

The challenge is a great example of how computer vision can be used to have a positive impact on the planet and offers a couple of ways to win portions of the $150k prize money.

You can read more about the challenge here or join the competition on Kaggle.
