Hi! New AI Weekly is here! Enjoy your weekend reading AI news and don’t forget to share it with your friends ;) GENERAL AI Nationalism http://bit.ly/2ldacq8 LEARNING Neural scene representation and rendering - in this work authors introduce the Generative Query Network (GQN), a framework within which machines learn to perceive their surroundings by training only on data obtained by themselves as they move around scenes. 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, [...]
