From the Editor: PyTorch vs. TensorFlow
Very often our customers asked about preferred frameworks for deep learning development. From years, TensorFlow has been the undisputed leader in the deep learning framework space with a massive developer community and the support of Google. Frameworks like Keras even make the development of TensorFlow models extremely easy. All those factors have made TensorFlow a favorite of teams starting in their deep learning journey. However, the space has a new challenger.
PyTorch is quickly becoming one of the most popular frameworks in the deep learning space and one that is experiencing rapid adoption of customers and developers. Backed by Facebook, PyTorch is enjoying an energetic community and has been quickly adopted by the data science community given its flexibilities for rapidly prototyping models. Recently, AI powerhouse OpenAI announced that it was switching to PyTorch as its main development framework. Certainly an option to consider.
Now let’s take a look at the core developments in AI research and technology this week:
Control Action from Images
Microsoft Research published a paper proposing a machine learning model that can infer actions to take in an environment based on images.
Learning to Manipulate Object by Using Pretrained Models
AI researchers from Google and MIT proposed a model for using transfer learning for teaching robots to manipulate objects.
Graph Neural Networks in Action
Amazon AI researchers published a paper proposing a technique for combining the information of multiple knowledge graphs into one.
Cool AI Tech Releases
AI researchers from Google and DeepMind open sourced Dreamer, a framework for training reinforcement learning agents in long-term tasks.
Extending Windows ML
Microsoft is announcing that is expanding the support of Windows ML, the popular framework for running machine learning models in Window devices, to older systems.
AI in the Real World
AI and Robotic Automation
Robotic automation is one of the hottest trends in enterprise software and now its being extended with AI.
A New Law Firm Focused on AI
AI poses new legal challenges, Bnh.ai is a new law firm focused solely in these new challenges.
Transcribe for Android
Google Translate today launched Transcribe for Android, a feature that delivers a continual, real-time translation of a conversation.
