Industry updates for week 46 of 2020

This section is for recent industry updates related to Artificial Intelligence.

  • Google releases Objectron Dataset: Google has launched Objectron dataset that comprises short video clips of many objects filmed from various angles. Every video has AR session metadata that includes computer poses and sparse point cloud. Here is  the Github repository.
  • Tensorflow turns 5: On Tensorflow’s fifth birthday, there are new things to try out using tensorflow. Here is a highlight of tensorflow’s journey so far in terms of interactive demos.
  • Long Range Arena: Google and DeepMind together benchmarked long sequences using LRA, a transformer architecture. Here is a quick read of the post.
  • Facebook uses AI for content moderation: Facebook has given ML a responsibility to handle moderation queue. It reduces human load and also protects them from being targeted. Here is a quick read.
  • Yann LeCun’s DL course for free: The NYU course on Deep Learning by Yann LeCun is now available for all. To get details visit here.
