Deep learning

In the past months, I am shocked by the progress of artificial intelligence (mostly implemented by deep learning). In March 2016, AlphaGo won Lee Sedol (李世石) in Weiqi (go). I had mixed feelings, excited, sad, and some fear. Around new year of 2017, AlphaGo won 60 games in a row against numerous top professional Weiqi players in China, Korea and Japan, including #1 Ke Jie. There is no doubt AlphaGo is at least a level better than top human player. It’s interesting to see that the way how people call AlphaGo has changed from “dog” to “Teacher Ah”, reflecting the change of our attitude toward artificial intelligence.

Game is not the only area where AI shocked me. Below are some area AI / deep learning has done extremely well:

  1. convert text to handwriting: Try yourself at http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~graves/handwriting.html Maybe in the future you can use AI to write your greeting cards.
  2. Apply artistic style to drawings. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxax5EKg0zA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMZqxfTls-0
  3. Fluid simulation
  4. Generate a text description of an image
  5. Real time facial expression transfer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mkI6qfpEJmI
  6. Language translation
  7. Handwriting recognition (try it here: http://cs.stanford.edu/people/karpathy/convnetjs/demo/mnist.html) This is not new progress but still worth mentioning
  8. Medical diagnosis
  9. And many more. I will update this list constantly
In the field of biology and medicine, deep learning also progresses rapidly. Below is the number of publications using keyword “deep learning” in PubMed.
deep learning publications in PubMed

“Deep Learning” is also a keyword in my Stork. I got new papers almost every day.
Some resources to learn more about deep learning and keep updated:
  1. Track “Deep Learning” publications using Stork
  2. Subscribe youtube channel Two Minute Papers (https://www.youtube.com/user/keeroyz). It contains many excellent short videos on the application of deep learning
  3. Play it here: http://playground.tensorflow.org/
  4. A few examples here: http://cs.stanford.edu/people/karpathy/convnetjs/
  5. I am going to take Udacity’s deep learning class at https://www.udacity.com/course/deep-learning-nanodegree-foundation–nd101

Is AI able to write papers?

As researchers, we all have a dream: it would be fantastic if AI could write papers one day! This sounds like a science fiction,...

人工智能已经强大到能写论文了?

作为科研人员,我们都有个梦想,如果有一天AI可以帮我写论文就太好了!这听上去好像是遥远的科幻,不过,当我使用了文献鸟Stork的新高级功能“人工智能创意论文摘要”后,我觉得,这一天马上就要来了。 为了看看人工智能有多厉害,我随便想了个有意思的主题,就是人和宠物狗之间的欺骗行为的大脑机制。这是一个还没有被研究的课题,到现在为止还没有人同时测量过一个人和他的宠物狗的大脑,当然也没有文章发表。我有这个想法已经有一段时间,但还是个模糊的想法,具体怎么实现以及结果怎样我也不知道。于是,我看看人工智能会写出什么。于是我输入了: Deception between human and pet dog, an fNIRS hyperscanning study 点击“开始”按钮后,人工智能好像想了几秒钟,然后文字便源源不断地出现了。 The present study aimed to investigate the neural correlates of deception...
