Best of arXiv.org for AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning – October 2019

In this recurring monthly feature, we will filter all the recent research papers appearing in the arXiv.org preprint server for subjects relating to AI, machine learning and deep learning – from disciplines including statistics, mathematics and computer science – and provide you with a useful “best of” list for the month.

2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum 9200 Processors Offer Leadership Performance, and Advance AI

Simulation, modeling, data analytics, and other workloads commonly use high performance computing (HPC) to advance research and business in many ways. However, as converged workloads involving AI grow in adoption, HPC systems must keep pace with evolving needs. 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, with built-in AI acceleration technologies, offer leadership performance to speed the most demanding HPC workloads.

Using Artificial Intelligence to Revolutionize Art Discovery

AI has touched just about every industry and discipline known to mankind, but how about the arts? Enter Artrendex and its ArtPI, a new interface or API driven by artificial intelligence that’s poised to transform the way art gets discovered, displayed, and sold. It promises to transform art discovery the way Shazam transformed music discovery.

How to Ensure Data Quality for AI

In this special guest feature, Wilson Pang, CTO of Appen, offers a few quality controls that organizations can implement to allow for the most accurate and consistent data annotation process possible. When we talk about quality training data, we’re talking about both the accuracy and consistency of those labels. Accuracy is how close a label is to the truth. Consistency is the degree to which multiple annotations on various training items agree with one another.

Infographic: AI and the Future of Consumer Goods

AI for consumer goods starts in the supply chain. Since 2016, the use of AI in retail grew by 600%; and by 2021, customer service interactions handled by AI will grow by 400%. Are you ready for the impact of AI on your business? By 2023 we estimate that 95% of supply vendors in the consumer goods space will be leveraging AI learning – will you be one of them? The infographic below from our friends over at Noodle.ai outlines the emergence of AI in retail.

Why Music Makes Us Feel, According to AI

Your heart beats faster, palms sweat and part of your brain called the Heschl’s gyrus lights up like a Christmas tree. Chances are, you’ve never thought about what happens to your brain and body when you listen to music in such a detailed way. But it’s a question that has puzzled scientists for decades: Why does something as abstract as music provoke such a consistent response? In a new study, a team of USC researchers, with the help of artificial intelligence, investigated how music affects listeners’ brains, bodies and emotions.
