MIT Uses Video to Train Machine Vision System

Jun 22, 2016 |

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory reported this week they have developed a deep learning algorithm that could help machines using predictive vision anticipate human interactions. The approach uses unlabeled YouTube videos as its source material to train deep networks to predict human interactions. Read more…

New Platform Visualizes Open U.S. Data

Apr 4, 2016 |

Federal agencies are sitting on tons of data, particularly in areas like healthcare, employment, weather and education. A new initiative called Data USA seeks to unleash this trove via a free and open platform that collects, analyzes and visualizes government data to help policy makers and executives better understand critical issues.
