What a bundle of buzzing bees can teach engineers about robotic materials
A swarm of honeybees can provide valuable lessons about how a group of many individuals can work together to accomplish a task, even with no one in charge. Roboticists are taking notes.
Announcing NVIDIA Merlin: An Application Framework for Deep Recommender Systems | NVIDIA Developer Blog
Recommender systems drive every action that you take online, from the selection of this web page that you’re reading now to more obvious examples like online shopping. They play a critical role in…
Isotonic Regression is THE Coolest Machine-Learning Model You Might Not Have Heard Of
The term “ Isotonic” originates from the Greek root words “ iso” and “ tonos.” The root “ iso” isn’t just a file format, it actually means equal. “ Tonos,” on the other hand, means to stretch. The…
Playing Hide-and-Seek, Machines Invent New Tools
After millions of games, machine learning algorithms found creative solutions and unexpected new strategies that could transfer to the real world.
Learning to Simulate Complex Physics with Graph Networks
Here we present a machine learning framework and model implementation thatcan learn to simulate a wide variety of challenging physical domains, involvingfluids, rigid solids, and deformable materials interacting with one another.Our framework---which we term “Graph Network-based Simulators”(GNS)…

Data Cleaning: Turn Messy Data into Tidy Data
Data preparation is difficult because the process is not objective, or at least it does not feel that way. Questions like “what is the best form of the data to describe the problem?” are not objective. You have to think from the perspective of the problem you want to solve and try a few different [……
