• Bringing still photos to life and 3D photography to your phone – Facebook Research

    Facebook researchers are transforming photography into entirely new consumer experiences—infusing still portraits with emotion and movement, and bringing 3D photography to the casual photographer. The Facebook team will present its latest research and also place the work into a broader context of the evolution of computer graphics and photography in the keynote...

  • Research Blog: Understanding Medical Conversations

    In “Speech Recognition for Medical Conversations”, we show that it is possible to build Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) models for transcribing medical conversations. While most of the current ASR solutions in medical domain focus on transcribing doctor dictations (i.e., single speaker speech consisting of predictable medical terminology), our research shows that it...

  • Amazon Web Services to join ONNX AI format, drive MXNET support – Facebook Research

    The Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) is a community project originally launched in September 2017 to increase interoperability between deep learning tools. ONNX is a standard for representing deep learning models that enables these models to be transferred between frameworks. It is the first step toward an open ecosystem where AI developers...

  • NVIDIA’s Secret Sauce? ‘Culture,’ America’s Top Biz Magazine Writes

    Highlighting NVIDIA’s accomplishments — and its extraordinary culture — Fortune magazine Thursday named NVIDIA’s Jensen Huang its 2017 businessperson of the year. “The co-founder and CEO of semiconductor and software maker NVIDIA saw the future of computing more than a decade ago and began developing products that could power the Artificial Intelligence...

  • Special Issue on Big Data Exploration, Visualization and Analytics – Call for Papers

    Introduction One the major challenges of the Big Data era is that it has realized the availability of a great amount and variety of massive datasets for analysis by non-corporate data analysts, such as research scientists, data journalists, policy makers, SMEs and individuals. A major characteristic of these datasets is...

  • A Natural Language Frame Semantic Parser

    The figure below illustrates SLING recognizing mentions of entities (e.g. people, places, or events), measurements (e.g. dates or distances), and other concepts (e.g. verbs), and placing them in the correct semantic roles for the verbs in the input. The word predicted evokes the most dominant sense of the verb “predict”, denoted as...

  • On-Device Conversational Modeling with TensorFlow Lite

    For inference, the trained projection model is compiled into a set of TensorFlow Lite operations that have been optimized for fast execution on mobile platforms and executed directly on device. The TensorFlow Lite inference graph for the on-device conversational model is shown here. TensorFlow Lite execution for the On-Device Conversational Model. The...

  • Collaborations and Partnerships in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems

    Introduction NASA has been collecting Earth observation data from spaceborne instruments since 1960 when the first experimental weather satellite, called the Television Infrared Observation Satellite (TIROS-1), was launched in collaboration with the Department of Defense. Today, there are tens of satellites orbiting the Earth and collecting frequent global observations for the benefit...

  • Fused Video Stabilization on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

    Motion Blur If the camera or the subject moves during exposure, the resulting photo or video will appear blurry. Even if we stabilize the motion in between consecutive frames, the motion blur in each individual frame cannot be easily restored in practice, especially on a mobile device. One typical video artifact due...
