Industry updates for week 47 of 2020

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

  • Project Guideline: Google’s pilot project Project guideline is for the blind and visually impaired which is a collaborative effort with Guiding Eyes venture. The application helps the visually impaired to follow the path line using intimation in the left or right ear according to the required position. To get a quick read, visit here.
  • DeePMD-kit: The researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have developed an ML-based software package for molecular dynamics modeling. The DeePMD is Deep Potential Molecular Dynamics which is an optimized AIMD code. Here is the full article for a quick read.
  • AI-based sarcasm detection: Researchers in China have developed a sarcasm detector using a twitter-based dataset. The algorithm uses text and image together to determine sarcasm. To know more, visit here.
  • Tensorflow for MacOS: Apple released a forked version of Tensorflow specially optimized for Intel’s Mac and Mac with 1 chip. To know more, visit here.
  • Human Image Synthesis: The Impersonator++   mimics human movements from the target video and modifies source images according to it.
  • Hum to search: Google’s AI has released Hum to Search platform to find a song by humming. The model tries to match the song’s spectrogram to the embedded melody produced by the model itself. To read the full article, visit here.
  • AI for diagnoses: The tinnitus diagnosis from brain scans are now possible with the help of AI. The Australian researchers have developed an algorithm that detects the presence of tinnitus and its severity. To know more, visit here.
  • EMNLP 2020 awards UC Berkeley Team as best: The EMNLP 2020 awarded UC Berkeley with the best paper award for digitally voicing silent speech. Here is the entire article for a quick read.
