LeCun is looking for ways to train the model to infer the meaningful content within a photo or video, then focus only on the area in the theoretical vector space needed to express that image. For instance, a model might infer from a piece of video that an object—say, a human face—could be represented pixel by pixel using only a small subset of all the possible positions and color states of all pixels within the frame. It might zero in on just 50 pixels that, in their various states, can represent all possible movements of all the surfaces of the face. With a smaller group of variables to work with, the model may have a much better chance of predicting which way a face in a video might move (in the same way a natural language model can predict the blanks in a sentence). … [Read more...] about Facebook’s AI for detecting hate speech is facing its biggest challenge yet

All of which are key factors for better work-life balance and increased productivity.

In the pilot phase, users had to scan their code with an attendant at the door to the building they were trying to enter. But paying a person to stand at the door for every building all day was expensive, so CVKey has since installed kiosks. However, the attendant provided an added layer of pressure because they could stop people and remind them to scan their code. By comparison, the kiosks cannot stop a person from entering or even catch a person who forgot to scan. In addition, most of the CVKey kiosks are actually located inside buildings, and the school employs a separate key card system that lets student swipe into buildings. McClendon is hoping that students themselves will act as enforcement and speak up when they see someone glide by without checking in. … [Read more...] about Ex-Google VP’s new app is helping 30,000 Kansas students return to college
