New Chips for Machine Intelligence

This note summarises details of some of the new silicon chips for machine intelligence. Its aim is to distil the most important implementation and architectural details (at least that are currently available), to highlight the main differences between them. I’m focusing on chips designed for training since they represent the frontier in performance and capability.…

Molecule.one uses machine learning to make synthesizing new drugs a snap – TechCrunch

Say you’re a pharmaceutical company. You’ve figured out that a novel molecule could be effective in treating an illness — but that molecule only exists in a simulation. How do you actually make it, and enough of it, to test in the real world? Molecule.one is a computational chemistry platform that helps bring theoretical substances…

In-Emulator Machine Translation of Retro Games

Welcome to the future! Sometime ago, a #RetroArch bounty got posted proposing OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and Text To Speech services being added to RetroArch. Some months later, and here we are – a bounty hunter valiantly took on the challenge and there is now a fully fledged AI Service up and running that works…
How YACHT Used Machine Learning to Create Their New Album

How YACHT Used Machine Learning to Create Their New Album

The dance punk band YACHT has always felt like a somewhat techy act since debuting in the early 2000s. They famously recorded instrumental versions of two earlier albums and made them available for artists under a Creative Commons license at the Free Music Archive. Post-Snowden, they wrote a song called “Party at the NSA” and…

We Let Machine Learning Design Logos

What exact machine learning models do you use? We use a variety of machine learning models for different use cases. These include Convolutional Neural Networks for logo and icon ranking, Word Embeddings and Recurrent Neural Networks for semantics understanding, Random Forests for color generation, and Genetic Algorithms for logo generation.
