AutoDraw: Fast Drawing for Everyone

After Quickdraw a few months ago – in which A.I. guesses what you are doodling – now comes AutoDraw from Google. AutoDraw is a new kind of drawing tool. It pairs machine learning with drawings from talented artists to help everyone create anything visual, fast. AutoDraw’s suggestion tool uses the same technology used in QuickDraw, […]

The Potential Future of Selfie Photography

Adobe Research: What happens when we tap into the power of artificial intelligence and deep learning to transform bad portrait shots into good ones – all on a smartphone? By combining perspective effect editing, automatic, software-only photo masking, and photo style transfer technology, we’re able to transform a typical selfie into a flattering portrait with […]

Using Machine Learning to Predict Parking Difficulty

No monitoring of parking meters, video feeds, etc. Looking at the users their behavior is the way to do it: Google determined that if users circled around a location like in the picture above, it usually suggested that parking might be difficult. To recognize this behavior, they took the difference between when they should have […]

Saving bandwidth through machine learning

When requesting a high-resolution image with the Android Google+ app, one no longer gets the full version sent over. Instead, one gets a low-resolution version which is then processed by RAISR: RAISR, which was introduced in November, uses machine learning to produce great quality versions of low-resolution images, allowing you to see beautiful photos as […]

TensorKart: self-driving MarioKart with TensorFlow

During the winter break Kevin Hughes decided to try and train an artificial neural network to play MarioKart 64: After playing way too much MarioKart and writing an emulator plugin in C, I managed to get some decent results. Getting to this point wasn’t easy and I’d like to share my process and what I […]

Nvidia Drive PX2

Some fascinating stuff by Nvidia: NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 allows the automotive industry to use artificial intelligence to tackle the complexities inherent in autonomous driving. It utilizes deep learning on NVIDIA’s most advanced GPUs for 360-degree situational awareness around the car, to determine precisely where the car is and to compute a safe, comfortable trajectory. […]
