Easily Build Your First Movie Recommender System

Recommender systems are being deployed everywhere to deliver personalized experiences.

Siraj Raval, a former software engineer at Meetup and CBS Interactive, recently launched an entertaining yet informative YouTube channel called Sirajology aimed to inspire and equip developers to build the future.

His recent tutorial video explains how you can create a recommender system in just 10 lines of C++ code using Amazon’s DSSTNE deep learning framework and GPUs in the Amazon Web Services cloud.

Open-Access Visual Search Tool for Satellite Imagery

Open-Access Visual Search Tool for Satellite Imagery

A new project by Carnegie Mellon University researchers provides journalists, citizen scientists, and other researchers with the ability to quickly scan large geographical regions for specific visual features.

Simply click on a feature in the satellite imagery – a baseball diamond, cul-de-sac, tennis court – and Terrapattern will find other things that look similar in the area and pinpoint them on the map.

Using a deep learning neural network trained for five days on an NVIDIA GeForce GPU, their model will look at small squares of the landscape and, comparing those patterns to a huge database of tagged map features from OpenStreetMap, it learned to associate them with certain concepts.

Currently, Terrapattern is limited to Pittsburgh, San Francisco, New York City and Detroit, but access to more cities is coming soon.

To meet the demand of the world’s growing population, farmers need to improve the productivity of their herds.

Amsterdam-based Connecterra recently raised nearly $2 million to further develop their GPU-accelerated deep learning solution that consists of a wearable device that monitors each animal in the herd and transmits the data to a cloud platform for analysis and prediction of behavioral patterns.

“A little over a year ago, we started with a vision to contribute to solving the problems that impact the future of our planet by combining sensors and machine learning technologies,” said Yasir Khokhar, CEO of Connecterra. “Today we are turning that vision into reality by bringing usable technology to farmers, helping them increase productivity and keep the herd healthier, while reducing the impact on the environment.”

The startup expects to make the service commercially available in the first half of 2016.

The Handford site in southeastern Washington is the largest radioactive waste site in the United Sates and is still awaiting cleanup after more than 70 years. Cleaning up radioactive waste is extremely complicated since some elements stay radioactive for thousands of years.

Scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and six universities: The State University of New York at Buffalo, University of Alabama, University of Minnesota, Washington State University and Rice University are using the NVIDIA Tesla GPU-accelerated Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to study the chemistry of radioactive elements called actinides — uranium, plutonium and other metals that release huge amounts of energy when their atoms are split.

New Service Uses Artificial Intelligence to Keep Your Kids Safe Online

A new service called Bark will act as an online watchdog to protect your child from online predators and cyberbullying, as well as looking out for mental health concerns like depression or suicidal thoughts.

Using deep learning and GPUs hosted in the Amazon Web Services cloud, Bark scans through social media messages and alerts parents of potential problems by flagging keywords and even analyzing the context around a conversation – it knows when someone is jokingly saying “ugh, I hate you” (for example, because the child just got a new, cool game) versus when someone actually means it.

“So much socialization happens through connected devices. As a parent, that raises the question of how you keep them safe in that environment, but still let them explore and harness the power of technology,” CEO Brian Bason explains.

Since its soft launch a few months ago, Bark has analyzed more than a million messages, and found that 52 percent of its user base had at least one problem identified via its software.

Finding all the best pictures on your phone just became a bit easier.

EyeEm, a photo sharing startup, released a new app called The Roll which relies on NVIDIA GPUs and deep learning to automatically organize your photos. Using the company’s AI-powered image analysis technology, each photo in your collection is assigned an aesthetic quality score and then all the best images are displayed for you to enjoy.  The app also uses a 20,000 tag database to automatically tag and group similar photos.

The app is currently available for iOS devices.

With hundreds of millions of customers shopping daily on Amazon, it’s critical they help them discover the right product from their massive catalog of products.

Amazon’s Deep Scalable Sparse Tensor Network Engine (DSSTNE or “Destiny”) is a deep learning framework built from the ground up to help researchers develop search and recommendation systems. With multi-GPU support, DSSTNE can automatically distribute computational workloads across all available GPUs, speeding up training of larger models without a lot of effort. As a result, DSSTNE can be used to build recommendations systems that model ten million unique products instead of being limited to hundreds of thousands possible with other solutions.

Amazon says 35 percent of its product sales result from product recommendations

The DSSTNE roadmap includes support for the types of convolutional layers used in image processing, and additional recurrent layers needed for many natural language understanding and speech recognition tasks.

Each startup will be given four minutes to present their GPU-accelerated tech and business plan live on stage to an audience of technology executives.

The challenge is designed for startups in the GPU ecosystem that have raised less than $1 million in seed funding and are ready to expand their visibility and demonstrate their potential to investors.

“We’ve had hundreds of companies at different stages of development come to ECS over the years,” says Jeff Herbst, VP of business development at NVIDIA. “They get a big boost in exposure, they get valuable feedback and insights, and many have become incredibly successful, like Oculus Rift and Natural Motion.”

The Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) lab announced a new Research Partnership Program to spur advances in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning — Facebook will be giving out 25 servers powered with GPUs, free of charge.

The first recipient to receive 32 GPUs in four GPU servers is Klaus-Robert Müller of TU Berlin. “Dr. Müller will receive four GPU servers that will enable his team to make quicker progress in two research areas: image analysis of breast cancer and chemical modeling of molecules,” FAIR engineering director Serkan Piantino and research lead Florent Perronnin wrote in a blog post.

Facebook will supply server recipients with all of the necessary software to run the servers and will also send some of its own researchers to various institutions for collaboration.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made the announcement from Berlin in a live video feed on his Facebook page – he also discussed the latest in AI with Yann LeCun, who leads Facebook AI Research.
