Amidst Covid-19 Pandemic, CDC Wants To Hire A Chief Data Officer

What was initially brushed off as a normal flu, has now escalated into a global pandemic that has touched almost every corner of the world. It has exposed our infrastructure, strategies of our policymakers, and more. As the number of…

PyTorch’s Native Automatic Mixed Precision Enables Faster Training

With the increasing size of deep learning models, the memory and compute demands too have increased. Techniques have been developed to train deep neural networks faster. One approach is to use half-precision floating-point numbers; FP16 instead of FP32. Recently, researchers…

Compress Data And Win Hutter Prize Worth Half A Million Euros

 “Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily” -Occam’s razor To incentivize the scientific community to focus on AGI, Marcus Hutter, one of the most prominent researchers of our generation, has renewed his decade-old prize by ten folds to half a million…

DeepMind Lends Its Audio AI Technology To Google

The use of video call services have increased tremendously over the past month amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Services offered by companies like Google, Zoom and Slack have been the pick of many organizations. This newly increased demand also brings with…

How To Encourage Reproducibility Within ML Community

The longevity of any scientific domain relies on its openness to being falsifiable. In the case of machine learning (ML), which made a late entry into the scientific community, there seems to be a lack of replicability that otherwise exists…

AI Physician, AI Music Composer & More Hot Releases This Week

As the world came to a standstill in its fight against an invisible adversary, many researchers have almost ceased their operations. However, the ML community still has something to cheer for every week, with releases of new services that can…

Facial Recognition Compliance Debate Stirs Again As Microsoft Pulls Out Of AnyVision Deal

Microsoft’s M12 venture fund recently released a statement saying that they are divesting its shareholding in AnyVision, an Israeli startup that works on facial recognition technology. Microsoft made this decision after an audit by Eric Holder of Covington and Burling…

A Beginner’s Guide To Edge Intelligence

When edge computing is merged with machine learning, we get edge intelligence. As the name suggests, it is a domain that deals with leveraging intelligence/insights acquired through data at a local level. According to Cisco’s forecast, there will be 850…

Top Research Papers On Causal Inference

As researchers pursued the inevitable AGI in machines, there has been a renewed interest in the idea of causality in models. There are significant implications to applying machine learning to problems of causal inference in fields such as healthcare, economics…

Are Labels Necessary For Neural Architecture Search? Probing Unsupervised Regimes Of AutoML

The performance of deep learning applications has improved proportionally with the increase in automation techniques such as Neural Architecture Search(NAS). Today hierarchical feature extractors are learned in an end-to-end fashion from data rather than manually designed.  NAS is the process…
