Google Researchers Use End-to-End Neural Network To Caption Pictures

by Jennifer Zaino Google researchers have announced the development of a machine-learning system that can automatically produce captions to accurately describe images in properly formed sentences the first time it sees them. “This kind of system could eventually help visually impaired people understand pictures, provide alternate text for images in parts of the world where…

Apple’s Siri to Incorporate Neural Network?

Wired’s Robert McMillan recently wrote, “…neural network algorithms are hitting the mainstream, making computers smarter in new and exciting ways.

Tony Shaw: Hi Olly, so to get us started, could you give me a high-level overview of what Atigeo does?

Olly Downs: Absolutely. Atigeo’s platform, xPatterns, enables enterprises to derive insights from large, disparate sources of unstructured data. In doing so, we’ve taken two approaches toward how our platform is productized. The first approach is around aspects of our core technology, which allows us to build simple ontologies for domains of unstructured data and then act upon the understanding of the data – in response to queries or profiles of entities, for example. The second aspect of our product enables enterprises to provide customers the ability to access and manage their profile or persona.
