Importance of A/B testing in Robotics On June 14, Monday, 2021

In robotics research, it is notoriously difficult to set up a perfectly reproducible experiment. Even in controlled robotic lab environments, real-world changes cause the baseline model to perform inconsistently. Google discusses how to address this fundamental challenge using random assignment and A/B testing.

Samsung announces feasibility of commercial stretchable devices On June 09, Wednesday, 2021

Research at Samsung appeared in the well-known journal Science Advances discussing a technology that bypasses the limitations of stretchable devices. A stretchable organic LED (OLED) display and a photoplethysmography (PPG) sensor can measure and display the user's heart rate in real time. This process allowed for an electronic stretchable device capable of assessing bodily metrics via the skin.

Reduce microscope data processing time from months to seconds On June 09, Wednesday, 2021

Researchers have been analyzing cells using a special type of microscopy called Scanning Dielectric Force Volume Microscopy. They can create maps of an electrical physical property called the dielectric constant. Each of the biomolecules that make up cells has a different dielectic constant, so a map of this property is basically a. map of cell composition. The current gold standard optical method involves applying a fluorescent dye that can disrupt the cell being studied. Their approach doesn't require the addition of any potentially disruptive external agent.

Better Translation Systems - FLORES Facebook Dataset On June 09, Wednesday, 2021

Evaluating how well translation systems perform has been a major challenge for AI researchers. If researchers cannot measure or compare their results, they can't develop better translation systems. FLORES-101 is the missing piece, the tool that enables researchers to rapidly test and improve upon multilingual translation models like M2M-100. It will make it easy to translate from Bengali to Marathi as it is to translate English to Spanish.

Document Layout Automation - Variational Transformer Networks On June 09, Wednesday, 2021

Layouts are commonly used to direct the order in which the reader parses a document to enable a better understanding. We use self-attention layers as building blocks of a Variational Transformer Network (VTN) model. The VTN model is able to extract meaningful relationships between the layout elements (paragraphs, tables, images, etc.), resulting in realistic synthetic documents. We show the effectiveness of this combination across different domains, such as scientific papers, UI layouts, and even furniture arrangements.

Contrastive Learning - Extention to the Supervised Setting On June 07, Monday, 2021

In recent years, self-supervised representation learning has significantly advanced due to the application of contrastive learning. However, little work has been done to successfully apply contrastive learn in the fully-super supervised domain. In Supervised Contrastive Learning, presented at NeurIPS 2020, we propose a novel loss function called SupCon. SupCon allows normalized embeddings from the same class to be pulled closer together, while embeddings from different classes are pushed apart.

Create Android App from text description - Text2App Framework On June 07, Monday, 2021

Researchers have developed a framework that can create Android applications from text descriptions. Most existing models for creating software based on text descriptions are based on end-to-end neural machine translation (NMT) models. NMT models struggle to generate large programs with hundreds of lines of code. Researchers created a new formal language that captures the complexity of app source code.

Google releasing Fuchsia OS with Nest Hub On May 26, Wednesday, 2021

Fuchsia, Google's from-scratch operating system, is now running on the first-generation Nest Hub. The update will not change any of the functionality of the Nest Hub's features. Under the hood, the smart display will be running Fuchsia OS instead of the Linux-based Cast OS. It's likely that Nest Hub owners won't even notice they've been switched over to Fuchsia OS, Google says.

Reflective people's mood - Twitter data revelation On May 26, Wednesday, 2021

Researchers studied 25 million self-referencing tweets from people in U.S. and Norway. They found that people's moods change based on how happy or unhappy they were during different parts of the day. The tweeters seemed to be less happy on Sunday afternoons and remained unhappy until Thursday. They also noticed that as a whole, the tweeters became less happy until around the following Thursday.
