Human-AI Collaboration for Creativity with Devi Parikh - #399 show art Human-AI Collaboration for Creativity with Devi Parikh - #399

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Devi Parikh, Associate Professor at the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, and research scientist at Facebook AI Research (FAIR). In our conversation, we touch on Devi’s definition of creativity, explore multiple ways that AI could impact the creative process for artists, and help humans become more creative. We investigate tools like casual creator for preference prediction, neuro-symbolic generative art, and visual journaling.

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we continue our ICML series with Elaine Nsoesie, assistant professor at Boston University. In our conversation, we discuss the different ways that machine learning applications can be used to address global health issues, including infectious disease surveillance, and tracking search data for changes in health behavior in African countries. We also discuss COVID-19 epidemiology and the importance of recognizing how the disease is affecting people of different races and economic backgrounds.

Language (Technology) Is Power: Exploring the Inherent Complexity of NLP Systems with Hal Daumé III - #395 show art Language (Technology) Is Power: Exploring the Inherent Complexity of NLP Systems with Hal Daumé III - #395

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Hal Daume III, professor at the University of Maryland and Co-Chair of the 2020 ICML Conference. We had the pleasure of catching up with Hal ahead of this year's ICML to discuss his research at the intersection of bias, fairness, NLP, and the effects language has on machine learning models, exploring language in two categories as they appear in machine learning models and systems: (1) How we use language to interact with the world, and (2) how we “do” language.

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re excited to bring ‘The Great ML Language (Un)Debate’ to the podcast! In the latest edition of our series of live discussions, we brought together experts and enthusiasts to discuss both popular and emerging programming languages for machine learning, along with the strengths, weaknesses, and approaches offered by Clojure, JavaScript, Julia, Probabilistic Programming, Python, R, Scala, and Swift. We round out the session with an audience Q&A (58:28).

Today we're joined by Sergey Levine, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC Berkeley. We last heard from Sergey back in 2017, where we explored Deep Robotic Learning. We caught up with Sergey at NeurIPS 2019, where Sergey and his team presented 12 different papers -- which means a lot of ground to cover!

Sergey and his lab’s recent efforts have been focused on contributing to a future where machines can be “out there in the real world, learning continuously through their own experience.” Sergey shares how many of the papers presented at the most recent NeurIPS conference are working to make that happen. Some of the major developments have been in the research fields of model-free reinforcement learning, causality and imitation learning, and offline reinforcement learning.
