Early into the millennium, science fiction movies used to show us a very cool scenario where a person comes home and starts talking to their computer, and everything would get sorted out on its own. Modern technological advances have rendered this fascinating scenario very realistic, and hence, made that science fiction movie scenes way less cool.
Amazon is tackling everything from analytics to machine learning and time series forecasting at its AWS re:Invent 2018 conference this week. The company made a number of new announcements to help developers to get started with non-virtual environments, artificial intelligence, and gain deeper insights. Amazon Firecracker allows for microVMs to be launched in non-virtual environments It launched Firecracker, an open-source solution that will allow lightweight micro-virtual machines to be launched in non-virtual environments. Firecracker combines the security and workload isolation … Read more

MIT computer scientists have developed a system that learns to identify objects within an image, based on a spoken description of the image. Given an image and an audio caption, the model will highlight in real-time the relevant regions of the image being described. Unlike current speech-recognition technologies, the model doesn’t require manual transcriptions and annotations of the examples it’s trained on. Instead, it learns words directly from recorded speech clips and objects in raw images, and associates them with … Read more
