• 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...

  • Seamless Google Street View Panoramas

    AcknowledgementsSpecial thanks to Bryan Klingner for helping to integrate this feature with the Street View infrastructure. Posted by Mike Krainin, Software Engineer and Ce Liu, Research Scientist, Machine Perception In 2007, we introduced Google Street View, enabling you to explore the world through panoramas of neighborhoods, landmarks, museums and more, right from...

  • Research Blog: Feature Visualization

    But neurons don’t understand the world by themselves — they work together. So we also need to understand how they interact with each other. One approach is to explore interpolations between them. What images can make them both fire, to different extents? Here we interpolate from a neuron that seems to detect...

  • Research Blog: Tangent: Source-to-Source Debuggable Derivatives

    As a result, you can finally read your automatic derivative code just like the rest of your program. Tangent is useful to researchers and students who not only want to write their models in Python, but also read and debug automatically-generated derivative code without sacrificing speed and flexibility. You can easily inspect...
