Artificial Intelligence News:
Listen to this deep learning model jam out in an infinite bass solo on a youtube live stream. The model was trained by dadabots on an original two hour improvised bass solo by Adam Neely. I’m ready for more interesting new AI music.
Learn how this robot can overcome issues and be adaptive to new environments with something called “Hebbian Learning”
Check out some thoughts published on forbes about what’s to come in 2021 for the AI field.
Developer Tools & Education:
Learn how to create your own datasets and models for object detection.
This is the 2nd part in pyimagesearch’s series about using ArUco markers. Learn how to detect them with OpenCV.
Learn how Facebook AI is re-engineering it’s AI systems to be more interoperable. And check out how Pytorch lighting is involved!
Excited to announce our partnership with @facebookai to standardize research and production deep learning code at @Facebook with @PyTorchLightnin!— PyTorchLightning (@PyTorchLightnin) December 21, 2020
If you're a company still on the fence, Lightning is great for research & production!https://t.co/kLzpTaz1mp
Upcoming Online AI & Data Events:
Lots of cool AI events are coming up in January!
Come discuss chapter 8 “Optimization for Deep Learning” of the deep learning book by Ian Goodfellow.
This will be an informal chat about what it’s like to use conversational Artificial Intelligence for a company. It’ll cover the different ways it can be implemented within an organization, and some of the misconceptions that come with using conversational AI will be discussed.
AnalyticsCLUB JobExpo was created to promote virtual, happy, and healthy hiring within the Data Analytics Community. The signature program from AnalyticsCLUB attracts 150,000 global participants(About 6k recruiters and 150k global seekers).
In this workshop,both theoretical concepts on deep learning, and hands-on code lab will be discussed.
Join this hands on workshop to get started with computer vision, object detection, data annotation, and more!
Interesting Podcasts & Interviews:
Listen to this conversation with Dmitri Dolgov, the CTO of Waymo (Google’s Self-Driving car company) to dive deep into the autonomous vehicle industry and the problems they tackle.
Join Brendon Cassidy, CTO and chief scientist at Super Hi-Fi to learn how they use artificial intelligence to give everyone the experience of a radio station tailored to their unique tastes.
Join this very interesting conversation about equivariant networks, generative video compression, Natural Graph Networks and more.
Notable Research Papers:
Some of the interesting machine learning papers published this week.
