If you’ve watched enough CSI (or just about any other crime show or film), then you are no doubt familiar with the phrase “zoom, enhance” or its countless variations. Detectives often will have a digital image that contains information that they need a closer look at. Nothing is sacred — amazingly zooming in on a far-off license plate, zeroing in on the reflection of a killer in someone’s eyeball, or identifying a suspect via a reflection in a pool of water. Enhance, enhance, enhance! This Hollywood trope is clearly overused on both the small and big screens, despite the fact that is woefully inaccurate and is beyond the scope of modern image processing. Or is it? The folks over at Google Brain... Read more...
We often joke about certain advances in technology leading to Skynet scenarios where machines wage war with humans, but sometimes it feels inevitable. Take for example what a team of researchers from Google Brain, Google's deep learning project, have discovered. In our quest to advance machine learning capabilities, neural networks are now able to devise their own encryption schemes, which in turn could allow them to communicate in secret with each other.Potential for human extinction aside, it's a rather fascinating thing. Neural networks are computer systems loosely modeled after the neural structure of the brain. Researchers Martin Abadi and David Andersen demonstrated that neural networks... Read more...
