It looks like our phones are going to make decisions for us. Are we now getting replaced by our own smartphone? Also in this issue: Industries where deep learning is driving innovation, Facebook’s SharpMask technology for image segmentation and Google’s TensorFlow model for text summarization.
We hope you have been enjoying these daily briefings. I’d love you to share with your friends if you have. Tweet to let them know?
Deep learning has a wide range of use cases such as: predicting weather patterns, detecting tumor cells or fraud detection. From Healthcare to Aerospace, see how different industries utilize the groundbreaking technology to drive innovation.
Who could imagine a life without their smartphone? One of the most useful tools to be ever created. The next step is to integrate AI to transform the smartphone from a passive tool to an engaging partner, that helps with and even makes decisions for us.
Machine Learning can provide users with accurate summaries of long text, which can help them to understand larger amounts of information quicker and easier. In order to push the research in this field, the Google Brain Team open sourced their TensorFlow model code for the task of generating news headlines. See some of the samples generated by their model.
Facebook AI Research, just published an article on their new SharpMask technology, which is used to segment and refine images. The results are astonishing. One of the possible use cases is to assess and describe the content of photos to blind users.
When companies try to automize the customer experience, they tend to neglect the human dialogue between customers and employees. Neglecting this dialogue can lead to decision making based on speculations and thinking in terms of the average customer, rather than understanding what real individuals want. The author also gives recommendations on how to effectively use Big Data to earn customer advocacy.
The author modified Google DeepMind’s code and gives instructions on how to utilize it to train your computer to play Super Mario. Just watch your PC learn how to play one of the most influential games ever made.
Come join us on the 26th of September for what’s sure to be an incredible evening with Hermann Hauser (Acorn, ARM, Amadeus Capital) on “What is Intelligence?”. As you may know, Hermann is a true thought leader in this space, having co-founded or invested in 100+ tech companies.
