Yann LeCun's IJCAI Keynote: We Need A World Model
LeCun proposed that current AI systems are weak in inference, common sense and cognition of the mission background because they lack a “World Model.” Hence, along with attempts at improving memory, researchers must also build up a representation of the real world so AI can better understand the environment and perform more intelligently.
IJCAI 2018 Kicks Off; DeepMind AlphaGo Wins Marvin Minsky Award
The 2018 International Joint Conference On Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) opened today in Stockholm, Sweden, with a record-setting 2,500 attendees gathering at the Stockholm International Fairs convention centre.
Facebook Researchers Win Test of Teim Award at ICML 2018
The Alan Turing Institute in the UK and France's DATAIA Institute have concluded an arrangement to collaborate in the arena of artificial intelligence and data science, part of a five-year commitment between the two countries to improve digital services.
SIGIR 2018 Reveals Best Papers; Struggles With Visa Issues
The 41st International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval is now in full swing at the University of Michigan campus in Ann Arbor, US - although some leading researchers won't be attending. Yesterday the respected conference presented its Best Paper Awards.
Baidu's Haifeng Wang Will Chair New ACL Asia-Pacific Chapter
At the 56th annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL) in Melbourne, Australia this week President Marti Hearst announced the establishment of the Asia-Pacific Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (AACL).
Announcing Cirq: An Open Source Framework for NISQ Algorithms
Cirq is focused on near-term questions and helping researchers understand whether NISQ quantum computers are capable of solving computational problems of practical importance. Cirq is licensed under Apache 2, and is free to be modified or embedded in any commercial or opensource package.
OpenAI Five Benchmark
The OpenAI Five Benchmark match will be held 12:30pm Pacific Time on August 5th in San Francisco. The human team will include Blitz, Cap, Fogged, and Merlini, some of whom are former professionals. The games will be streamed on our Twitch channel and casted by popular casters Purge and ODPixel.
AutoGraph converts Python into TensorFlow graphs
We'd like to tell you about a new TensorFlow feature called "AutoGraph". AutoGraph converts Python code, including control flow, print() and other Python-native features, into pure TensorFlow graph code.
Theory IIIb: Generalization in Deep Networks
Here we prove a similar result for nonlinear multilayer DNNs near zero minima of the empirical loss. The result holds for exponential-type losses but not for the square loss. In particular, we prove that the weight matrix at each layer of a deep network converges to a minimum norm solution up to a scale factor (in the separable case).
