Keras – deep learning library for Tensorflow and Theano

Keras: Deep Learning library for Theano and TensorFlow You have just found Keras. Keras is a high-level neural networks library, written in Python and capable of running on top of either TensorFlow or Theano. It was developed with a focus on enabling fast experimentation. Being able to go from idea to result with the least […]

Image-to-Image Translation with Conditional Adversarial Networks

We investigate conditional adversarial networks as a general-purpose solution to image-to-image translation problems. These networks not only learn the mapping from input image to output image, but also learn a loss function to train this mapping. This makes it possible to apply the same generic approach to problems that traditionally would require very different loss […]

Temperate earth-sized worlds found in extraordinarily rich planetary system

Astronomers have found a system of seven Earth-sized planets just 40 light-years away. They were detected as they passed in front of their parent star, the dwarf star TRAPPIST-1. Three of them lie in the habitable zone and could harbour water, increasing the possibility that the system could play host to life. It has both […]

New ETSI group on improving operator experience using Artificial Intelligence

ETSI is pleased to announce the creation of the Industry Specification Group ‘Experiential Network Intelligence’ (ISG ENI). The purpose of the group is to define a Cognitive Network Management architecture that is based on the “observe-orient-decide-act” control model. It uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) techniques and context-aware policies to adjust offered services based on changes in […]

Switched-on DNA: Sparking nano-electronic applications

“It has been established that charge transport is possible in DNA, but for a useful device, one wants to be able to turn the charge transport on and off. We achieved this goal by chemically modifying DNA,” said Tao, who directs the Biodesign Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors and is a professor in the Fulton […]

The Dunning-Kruger effect: why do incompetent people think they are so great? or Unskilled and unaware of it: How difficulties in recognizing one’s own incompetence lead to inflated self-assessments.

People tend to hold overly favorable views of their abilities in many social and intellectual domains. The authors suggest that this overestimation occurs, in part, because people who are unskilled in these domains suffer a dual burden: Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of […]

Used cars allow the old owners app access

enderson tested four major auto manufacturers, and found they all have apps that allow previous owners to access them from a mobile device. At the RSA security conference in San Francisco on Friday, Henderson explained how people can still retain control of connected cars even after they resell them. Manufacturers create apps to control smart […]

AI Software Juggles Probabilities to Learn from Less Data

Gamalon uses a technique that it calls Bayesian program synthesis to build algorithms capable of learning from fewer examples. Bayesian probability, named after the 18th century mathematician Thomas Bayes, provides a mathematical framework for refining predictions about the world based on experience. Gamalon’s system uses probabilistic programming—or code that deals in probabilities rather than specific […]

Microsoft Graph Engine goes open source on github

Graph Engine – Open Source Microsoft Graph Engine is a distributed in-memory data processing engine, underpinned by a strongly-typed in-memory key-value store and a general distributed computation engine. This repository contains the source code of Graph Engine and its graph query language — Language Integrated Knowledge Query (LIKQ). LIKQ is a versatile graph query language […]

The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Text in an R package

As described by Hadley Wickham, tidy data has a specific structure: each variable is a column each observation is a row each type of observational unit is a table This means we end up with a data set that is in a long, skinny format instead of a wide format. Tidy data sets are easier […]


text2vec is an R package which provides an efficient framework with a concise API for text analysis and natural language processing (NLP). Goals which we aimed to achieve as a result of development of text2vec: Concise – expose as few functions as possible Consistent – expose unified interfaces, no need to explore new interface for […]

This is what happens with an unelected PM: Planned Espionage Act could jail journos and whistleblowers as spies

The government has received recommendations for a “future-proofed” new Espionage Act that would put leaking and whistleblowing in the same category as spying for foreign powers. The plans would threaten leakers and journalists with the same extended jail sentences as agents working for of foreign powers. Sentences would apply even if – like Edward Snowden […]

5 Things We’ve Learned About How Companies Track You Online And Off

The ability for companies to follow you from one platform to another — from your phone to your laptop to a physical store — is called cross-device tracking, and for businesses that want to market and sell stuff to you, it is basically the holy grail. With robust tracking, a company can follow you basically […]

Windows DRM can find your IP without you knowing if you’re watching properly signed wmv and asf files, can uncloak your tor anonymity

If you were to modify the above WRMHEADER or any of the three identified GUID objects you would find that on opening in Windows Media Player you are prompted with a warning from Windows Media Player. However, this warning DOES NOT appear if the DRM license has been signed correctly and the Digital Signature Object, […]
