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.

“DuSee is a natural extension of Baidu’s AI expertise. The platform uses sophisticated computer vision and deep learning to understand and then augment a scene,” said Dr. Andrew Ng, chief scientist of Baidu. “The path to better AR is through better AI.”

For the image recognition and classification work, the team trained its customized convolutional network with NVIDIA Quadro GPUs and CUDA on a database of 10 billion images.

The company has already developed interactive DuSee solutions for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Long Wheelbase search engine marketing campaign and Ultra DOUX, a new individual natural hair care brand of L’Oreal China.

Assisting Farmers with Artificial Intelligence

With our planet getting warmer and warmer, and carbon dioxide levels steadily creeping up, companies are using deep learning to help cope with the effects that climate change is having on their crops.   

An article on MIT Technology Review highlights PEAT, a German company using CUDA, TITAN X GPUs and the cuDNN-accelerated Caffe deep learning framework to provide farmers with a plant disease and diagnostics management tool. Farmers are able to take a picture of their affected plants, upload it to PEAT’s “Plantix” mobile app and get treatment recommendations within seconds. The database currently contains information on 52 crops worldwide and the ability to detect 160 plant diseases, pests and nutrient deficiencies with 95% accuracy.

EAT’s Plantix app provides detailed symptom descriptions to empower farmers to take autonomous decisions on their disease management.

Torchnet sits atop the popular Torch deep learning framework benefits from GPU acceleration using CUDA and cuDNN. Further, Torchnet has built-in support for asynchronous, parallel data loading and can make full use of multiple GPUs for vastly improved iteration times. This automatic support or multi-GPU training helps Torchnet take full advantage of powerful systems like the NVIDIA DGX-1 with its eight Tesla P100 GPUs.

According to the Torchnet research paper, its modular design makes it easy to re-use code in a series of experiments. For instance, running the same experiments on a number of different datasets is accomplished simply by plugging in different dataloaders. And the evaluation criterion can be changed easily by plugging in a different performance meter.

Torchnet adds another powerful tool to data scientists’ toolkit and will help speed the design and training of neural networks, so they can focus on their next great advancement.

A new personalized search engine helps you explore what you would look like with brown hair, curly hair or in a different time period.

Upload a selfie to Dreambit and type in a term like “curly hair” or “1930 woman”, and the software’s algorithm searches through photo collections for similar images and seamlessly maps your face onto images matching your search criteria.

Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman, a computer vision researcher at University of Washington, developed the image recognition software using a TITAN X GPU and the cuDNN-accelerated Caffe deep learning framework to train the models and for inference. Ira presented her paper at this week’s SIGGRAPH 2016 and the search engine will be publicly available later this year.

Illustration of the system. The system gets as input a photo and a text query. The text query is used to search a web image engine. The retrieved photos are processed to compute a variety of face features and skin and hair masks, and ranked based on how well they match to the input photo. Finally, the input face is blended into the highest ranked candidates.

Dreambit is also able to predict what a child might look like when they are forty years old or with red hair, black hair, or even a shaved head.

“It’s hard to recognize someone by just looking at a face, because we as humans are so biased towards hairstyles and hair colors,” said Kemelmacher-Shlizerman. “With missing children, people often dye their hair or change the style so age-progressing just their face isn’t enough. This is a first step in trying to imagine how a missing person’s appearance might change over time.”

The painting and drawing tools most people use are 2D, but now a new project gives artists the ability to choose any brush they like, a limitless array of paint colors, and use the same natural twists and turns of the brush to create the rich textures of oil painting, all on a digital canvas.

Delivering such a realistic, physically-based painting tool requires some heavy-duty computational power, so Adobe Research collaborated with NVIDIA to create the world’s first real-time simulation-based 3D painting system with bristle-level interactions entirely with CUDA. Adobe Researchers Zhili Chen and Byungmoon Kim originally developed Project Wetbrush in 2015, but and have collaborated with NVIDIA software experts to optimize their application performance, allowing them to add even more GPU-accelerated features to the system.

This is just the beginning for the project. Using deep learning, some of the most computationally challenging physical simulations could potentially be added to create more responsive and realistic brush dynamics, or the system could even learn from itself.

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.

Designers have thousands of fonts to choose from, but what do you when you see the perfect font on a building or on a flyer you found on the street? Photoshop is using artificial intelligence to help designers identify typefaces that they have seen elsewhere.

Revealed last year by Adobe researchers, DeepFont uses NVIDIA GPUs and deep learning to look at the curves and other characteristics of fonts used in the captured image and then compares it to a database of nearly 20,000 fonts to find similar fonts.

“My research background is in image recognition and artificial intelligence techniques like machine learning and deep learning,” said Hailin Jin, a principal scientist in Adobe Research, and creator of DeepFont.  “I wondered — can we apply the power of machine learning with the font manual to make a useful tool for designers?”

The tool will be available to users with a Creative Cloud subscription.

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.
