Digest #9


SeedBank — collection of interactive machine learning examples by Google. Examples of "seeds" – Variational auto-encoder for music, compare GAN, DeepDream etc. Zero Setup, GPU included.

Albumentations – fast image augmentation library by Kaggle Grandmasters (e.g., motion blur, perspective for street view, random crop shift, brightness etc).

Seq2Seq-Vis – a visual debugging tool for Sequence-to-Sequence models.

Geomstats – Python package for Riemannian geometry in machine Learning.

Research Papers and Books

"Bandit Algorithms" – Book Draft by Tor Lattimore and Csaba Szepesvari. Cambridge University Press.

"Towards Understanding the Role of Over-Parametrization in Generalization of Neural Networks". Present a new capacity bound that decreases with the increasing number of hidden units and may explain better generalization of larger networks.

"ClariNet: Parallel Wave Generation in End-to-End Text-to-Speech". First fully end-to-end TTS model that directly converts text into waveform with a single neural network.

"Through-Wall Human Pose Estimation Using Radio Signals" – WiFi frequencies traverse walls and reflect off the human body. Deep Neural network parses such radio signals to estimate 2D poses. MIT CSAIL.

"Deep Video Portraits" – photo-realistic reanimation of portrait videos. Transfer full 3D head pose, facial expression, eye gaze and blinking.

Posts, Articles, Tutorials

Multi-Modal Methods: Image Captioning – recent intersections between computer vision and natural language processing.

The Annotated Transformer – annotated version of the paper “Attention is All You Need” in the form of a line-by-line implementation by Harvard NLP group.

Papers with Code – machine learning papers with code.

How to explain gradient boosting – explains the intuition, provides visualizations for model construction, explains the mathematics as simply as possible.
