Less Labels, More Learning: Improved small data performance with combined techniques

In small data settings where labels are scarce, semi-supervised learning can train models by using a small number of labeled examples and a larger set of unlabeled examples. A new method outperforms earlier techniques.

Locating Landmarks on the Fly: AI model identifies stationary objects from radar scans.

Directions such as “turn left at the big tree, go three blocks, and stop at the big red house on your left” can get you to your destination because they refer to stationary landmarks. New research enables self-driving cars to identify such stable indicators on their own.

Surgical Speed-Up: An AI tool for diagnosing brain tumor scans

Every second counts when a patient’s skull is open in the operating room. A new technique based on deep learning can shorten some brain surgeries. During brain cancer operations, surgeons must stop in mid-operation for up to a half hour while a pathologist analyzes the tumor tissue.

Periscope Vision: Researchers used deep learning to see around corners.

Wouldn’t it be great to see around corners? Deep learning researchers are working on it. Researchers developed deep-inverse correlography, a technique that interprets reflected light to reveal objects outside the line of sight.

Trading Faces: FaceShifter swaps faces obscured by objects.

AI’s ability to transfer a person’s face from a source photo onto someone in a target photo doesn’t work so well when the target face is partially obscured by, say, eyeglasses, a veil, or a hand. A new technique handles such occlusions.
