Ferret.ai – With Great Power Comes Great Research
http://ferret.ai/

FERRET.AI is a free Chrome extension. It empowers your research by summarizing/enriching articles and providing full-text search on your reading history. Features include: a) Research History – Hop in Ferret’s Time Machine to retrace the steps of your reading history. Do a full-text search for keywords or metadata, get a visual timeline of what you’ve been reading lately or combine the two. Ferret becomes your own powerful search engine as you research and explore; b) Scans and Summarizes – Ferret scans scholarly content and snoops out the concepts you want to read about. It also visualizes those concepts in the text’s timeline, so you can find exactly what you’re looking for – in no time. The Time Machine handily points out where and when you read about it before; c) Enriches – Ferret integrates with popular scientific databases and services to enrich the academic content you read. No more sifting through the rubble when doing research: Ferret instantly assesses the scientific value of any publication through author and journal scores, peer reviews and structured data source connections. New services and data sources are added constantly. and d) Downloads – Found something worth keeping or reading in depth? Don’t sweat the download button. If an open-access PDF is available, Ferret finds it for you. Just fire up any PDF or HTML page, Ferret doesn’t discriminate. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

OpenAI Baselines: DQN

OpenAI Baselines: DQN
https://blog.openai.com/openai-baselines-dqn/

They are open-sourcing OpenAI Baselines, their internal effort to reproduce reinforcement learning algorithms with performance on par with published results. They will release the algorithms over upcoming months; today’s release includes DQN and three of its variants. Reinforcement learning results are tricky to reproduce: performance is very noisy, algorithms have many moving parts which allow for subtle bugs, and many papers don’t report all the required tricks. By releasing known-good implementations (and best practices for creating them), they would like to ensure that apparent RL advances never are due to comparison with buggy or untuned versions of existing algorithms. RL algorithms are challenging to implement correctly; good results typically only come after fixing many seemingly-trivial bugs. This post contains some best practices they use for correct RL algorithm implementations, as well as the details of our first release: DQN and three of its variants, algorithms developed by DeepMind.

TensorFlow™ – An Open-Source Software Library for Machine Learning

TensorFlow™ – An Open-Source Software Library for Machine Learning
https://www.tensorflow.org/

TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API. TensorFlow was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization for the purposes of conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research, but the system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains as well.

Algorithms, Automation and News
http://www.algorithmic.news/

Algorithms and automation increasingly are connected to many aspects of news production, distribution, and consumption. We invite original, unpublished papers to address such issues at an international conference to be held at the Center for Advanced Studies, LMU Munich, May 22-23, 2018 — shortly before the ICA annual convention in Prague, not far from Munich. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, there will be no conference fee, and free hotel accommodation will be provided for presenters, in addition to opportunities for need-based travel stipends. Select papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of Digital Journalism as well as a proposed edited volume. On this site, you will find the complete CfP, the timeline of events, and details regarding speakers and organizers. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Journalism Resources Subject Tracer™.

LYREBIRD – New Generation of Speech Synthesis Technology

LYREBIRD – New Generation of Speech Synthesis Technology
https://lyrebird.ai/

Lyrebird will offer a new generation of speech synthesis technologies for developers. It is the result of several months of research conducted at the MILA lab at University of Montréal. Their technology is the very first of this kind to allow copying voices in a matter of minutes and control the emotion of the generation. They believe that vocal human-computer interfaces will become more and more widespread in the future and they want to lead the race. Features: a) Copy the voice of anyone – Record 1 minute from someone’s voice and Lyrebird can compress her/his voice’s DNA into a unique key. Use this key to generate anything with its corresponding voice; b) Design your own voice – Choose among thousands of predefined voices or design your own unique voice for your app; c) Real-time generation – Their GPU clusters generate 1000 sentences in less than half a second; and d) Control the emotion – Anger, Sympathy, Stress. Lyrebird allows to control the emotion of the generated voice. This will be added to Artificial Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Script Resources Subject Tracer™.
