The training is performed in a simulated environment in which they randomize many of the physical properties of the system like friction coefficients and an object's appearance. Their policies transfer to the physical robot despite being trained entirely in simulation. This method does not rely on…

Hi! New AI Weekly is here! Enjoy your weekend reading AI news and don’t forget to share it with your friends ;) GENERAL Software beats animal tests at predicting toxicity of chemicals - machine-learning software trained on masses of chemical-safety data is so good at predicting some kinds of toxicity that it now rivals — and sometimes outperforms — expensive animal studies, researchers report. Computer models could replace some standard safety studies conducted on millions of animals each year, such as dropping compounds into rabbits’ eyes to check if they are irritants, or feeding chemicals to rats to work out lethal doses. https://go.nature.com/2LeG3C7 Inside China’s Dystopian Dreams: A.I., Shame and Lots of Cameras - with millions of cameras and billions of lines of code, China is building a high-tech authoritarian…

Enjoy your weekend reading AI news and don’t forget to share it with your friends ;) GENERAL Chinese AI beats 15 doctors in tumor diagnosis competition - An AI system has wiped the floor with some of China’s top doctors when it comes to diagnosing brain tumors and predicting hematoma expansion. As reported by Xinhua, the system defeated a team comprised of 15 of China’s top doctors by a margin of two to one. The AI, BioMind, was developed by the Artificial Intelligence Research Centre for Neurological Disorders at Beijing Tiantan Hospital, and is another example of the long line of the technology analyzing images. http://bit.ly/2KFY5Rw No, you don't need ML/AI.

Clearly, facial recognition-powered government surveillance is an extraordinary invasion of the privacy of all citizens — and a slippery slope to losing control of our identities altogether. https://tcrn.ch/2lGTgs8 OpenAI Five - OpenAI team of five neural networks, OpenAI Five, has started to defeat amateur human…

Much like infants and animals, the GQN learns by trying to make sense of its observations of the world around it. In doing so, the GQN learns about plausible scenes and their geometrical properties, without any human labelling of the contents of scenes. http://bit.ly/2LOPA2o VIDEOS Jens Ludwig: "Machine Learning in the Criminal Justice System" | Talks at Google http://bit.ly/2LV9NUp PROGRAMMING Speech_Recognition_with_Tensorflow - implementation of a…
