While the Transformer architecture has become the de-facto standard for
natural language processing tasks, its applications to computer vision remain
limited. In vision, attention is either applied in conjunction with
convolutional networks, or used...
AI Artist Tom White explores how machines see, know, and articulate the world.
tom whitePleased to announce a new set of prints: Knots. This collection of unique single edition screen prints on paper and canvas were created by neural networks based on photos of knots. Check out the full set in my online virtual gallery.
Google is removing "male" and "female" labeling options from its Cloud Vision API for recognizing objects and faces to avoid potential bias.
tom white@briandavidearp I found this essay framing gender as essentially polysemous helpful in resolving inconsistencies in machine learning. For example: Google removed gender labels from their API with the rationale that "a person’s gender cannot be inferred by appearance".
We explore the question of whether the representations learned by classifiers
can be used to enhance the quality of generative models. Our conjecture is that
labels correspond to characteristics of natural data which are most salient to
As with any other poison, viruses are usually more dangerous in larger amounts.
tom white@honnibal@azeem also: note here everyone was already quarantined into separate rooms. so their exposure to the virus would presumably have been very light - eg: brief contact with staff or second hand from surface. good discussion of why exposure viral load matters here.
