Initiatives & Trends

Google recently announced a new labeled dataset of human actions taking place in videos, named Atomic Visual Actions (AVA). It densely annotates 80 atomic visual actions in 57.6k movie clips with actions localized in space and time, resulting in 210k action labels with multiple labels per human occurring frequently. Compared with existing datasets, AVA possesses the following main characteristics:

For our October 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of compressed sensing.
Patent no. 9,755,714 proposes methods and systems for performing compressed time domain joint channel estimation in a multi-user MIMO LTE wireless network include receiving training signals from a plurality of users, estimating a maximum delay spread for the received data according to a coherence bandwidth...

Researchers from University of California, Berkeley have developed an AI that turns a horse video into a zebra video.

The following is from the abstract of the authors' paper, titled "Unpaired Image-to-Image Translation using Cycle-Consistent Adversarial Networks".

For our September 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of infrared imaging and signal processing.

Microsoft revealed a new deep learning acceleration platform at the Hot Chips conference held in California.

The company has designed this new system for "real-time AI" meaning that it can process all data very fast and ultra-low latency. For more details, please read https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/blog/microsoft-unveils-project-brainwave/.

 

The world’s best Dota 2 player Dendi was defeated by an artificial intelligence (AI) in a 1v1 game during Valve’s yearly Dota 2 tournament on August 11, 2017. The bot was developed by OpenAI, a non-profit AI research company that aims to promote and develop friendly AI to benefit humanity as a whole. 

In October 2016, inside a sold-out arena in Zurich, a man named Numa Poujouly steered his wheelchair up to the central podium. The 30-yearold, who became paralyzed after a bicycle accident in his teens, had triumphed in the tournament’s most futuristic event: a video-game-like race in which the competitors controlled their speeding avatars with just their minds.

For our August 2017 issue, we cover recent patents granted in the area of wavelet analysis

Gibson, a guitar manufacturer, is know for pushing what the technology can do for die-hard guitar fans. The latest innovation, revolving around signal processing, is a Gibson Custom Lightly Figured Les Paul Standard with a built-in distortion circuit. A creation Gibson is calling the Burstdriver.
