Massively Multilingual Translation: NLP Model Translates 200 Different Languages

Sentence pairs that have equivalent meanings in different languages — typically used to train machine translation systems — have been available in sufficient quantities for only around 100 languages. New work doubled that number and produced a more capable model.

AI Designs Chemical Weapons: Drug Design AI Creates Poisons

It’s surprisingly easy to turn a well-intended machine learning model to the dark side. In an experiment, Fabio Urbina and colleagues at Collaborations Pharmaceuticals, who had built a drug-discovery model to design useful compounds and avoid toxic ones, retrained it to generate poisons.

Tax Relief the AI Way: AI Economist creates optimal tax rate.

Nothing is certain except death and taxes, the saying goes — but how to make taxes fair and beneficial remains an open question. New research aims to answer it.

Artistry Is Obsolete: Is AI Making Human Artists Obsolete?

Is human creativity being replaced by the synthetic equivalent? The fear: AI is cranking out increasingly sophisticated visual, musical, and literary works. AI-generated media will flood the market, squeezing out human artists and depriving the world of their creativity.

Listening to the Brain: NLP System Translates a Man's Brain Activity Into Words

Neural networks translated a paralyzed man’s brainwaves into conversational phrases. Researchers trained a system to interpret electrical impulses from the brain of a man who had lost the ability to speak 15 years ago, and displayed them as words on a video screen.
Automated player learning by watching recorded gameplay

Behavioral Cloning Shootout

Neural networks have learned to play video games like Dota 2 via reinforcement learning by playing for the equivalent of thousands of years (compressed into far less time). In new work, an automated player learned not by playing for millennia but by watching a few days’ worth of recorded gameplay.

Up for Debate

IBM’s Watson question-answering system stunned the world in 2011 when it bested human champions of the TV trivia game show Jeopardy! Although the Watson brand has fallen on hard times, the company’s language-processing prowess continues to develop.
Art pieces with subjective commentary regarding their emotional impact

How Art Makes AI Feel

An automated art critic spells out the emotional impact of images. Led by Panos Achlioptas, researchers at Ecole Polytechnique, King Abdullah University, and Stanford University trained a deep learning system to generate subjective interpretations of art.

Performance Guaranteed

Bayes-optimal algorithms always make the best decisions given their training and input, if certain assumptions hold true. New work shows that some neural networks can approach this kind of performance.

Materials Science Gets a Boost

Neural nets could speed up development of new materials.What’s new: A deep learning system from Sandia National Laboratories dramatically accelerated simulations that help scientists understand how changes to the design or fabrication of a material change its properties.
Data related to a language model that predicts mutations that would enable infectious viruses

The Language of Viruses

A neural network learned to read the genes of viruses as though they were text. That could enable researchers to page ahead for potentially dangerous mutations. Researchers at MIT trained a language model to predict mutations that would enable infectious viruses to become even more virulent.

It’s a Small World Model After All

World models, which learn a compressed representation of a dynamic environment like, say, a video game, have delivered top results in reinforcement learning. A new method makes them much smaller.
