Machine learning of neural representations of suicide and emotion concepts identifies suicidal youth | Nature Human Behaviour

The clinical assessment of suicidal risk would be substantially complemented by a biologically based measure that assesses alterations in the neural representations of concepts related to death and life in people who engage in suicidal ideation. This study used machine-learning algorithms (Gaussian Naive Bayes) to identify such individuals (17 suicidal ideators versus 17 controls) with […]

How we fooled Google’s AI into thinking a 3D-printed turtle was a gun

Students at MIT in the US claim they have developed an algorithm for creating 3D objects and pictures that trick image-recognition systems into severely misidentifying them. Think toy turtles labeled rifles, and baseballs as cups of coffee. It’s well known that machine-learning software can be easily hoodwinked: Google’s AI-in-the-cloud can be misled by noise; protestors […]

A generative vision model that trains with high data efficiency and breaks text-based CAPTCHAs

Learning from few examples and generalizing to dramatically different situations are capabilities of human visual intelligence that are yet to be matched by leading machine learning models. By drawing inspiration from systems neuroscience, we introduce a probabilistic generative model for vision in which message-passing based inference handles recognition, segmentation and reasoning in a unified way. […]

Nvidia uses Progressive Growing of GANs for Improved Quality, Stability, and Variation and makes photorealistic faces with them

We describe a new training methodology for generative adversarial networks. The key idea is to grow both the generator and discriminator progressively, starting from low-resolution images, and add new layers that deal with higher resolution details as the training progresses. This greatly stabilizes the training and allows us to produce images of unprecedented quality, e.g., […]

Saudi Arabia grants citizenship to a ROBOT as critics say it now has more rights than women
