Video Abstract: InstaFact—Bringing Knowledge to Office Apps

3 days ago
This demo shows how InstaFact brings the information and intelligence of the Satori knowledge graph into Microsoft’s productivity software. InstaFact can automatically complete factual information in the text a user is writing or can verify the accuracy of facts in text. It can infer the user’s needs based on data correlations and simple natural-language clues. […]

Video Abstract: Custom Vision Service

3 days ago
This demo shows how Custom Vision Service can be applied to many AI vision applications. For example, if a client needs to build a custom image classifier, they can submit a few images of objects, and a model is deployed at the touch of a button. Microsoft Office is also using Custom Vision Service to […]

Video Abstract: Private AI

4 days ago
As the volume of data goes up, the quality of machine learning models, predictions, and services will improve. Once models are trained, predictive cloud services can be built on them, but users who want to take advantage of the services have serious privacy concerns about exposing consumer and enterprise data—such as private health or financial […]

Video Abstract: Panel: Emotionally Intelligent AI and Agents

1 week ago
Emotions are fundamental to human interactions and influence memory, decision-making, and well-being. As AI systems—in particular, intelligent agents—become more advanced, there is increasing interest in applications that can fulfill task goals and social goals, and respond to emotional states. Research has shown that cognitive agents with these capabilities can increase empathy, rapport, and trust with […]

Video Abstract: Towards Socio-Culturally Aware AI

1 week ago
How do we make AI agents appear to be more “human”? The goal of this session is to bring together researchers in human-computer interaction, linguistics, machine learning, speech, and natural language processing to discuss what is required of AI that goes beyond functional intelligence, and that helps agents display social and cultural intelligence. We will […]

Video Abstract: Challenges and Opportunities in Human-Machine Partnership

1 week ago
The new wave of excitement about AI in recent years has been based on successes in perception tasks or on domains with limited and known dynamics. Because machines have achieved human parity in accuracy for image recognition and speech recognition and have beaten human champions on games such as Go and Poker, they have led […]

Video Abstract: Transforming Machine Learning and Optimization through Quantum Computing

1 week ago
In 1982, Richard Feynman first proposed using a “quantum computer” to simulate physical systems with exponential speed over conventional computers. Quantum algorithms can solve problems in number theory, chemistry, and materials science that would otherwise take longer than the lifetime of the universe to solve on an exascale machine. Quantum computers offer new methods for […]

Video Abstract: Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) for Deep Learning

1 week ago
Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit (CNTK) is a production-grade, open-source, deep-learning library. In the spirit of democratizing AI tools, CNTK embraces fully open development, is available on GitHub, and provides support for both Windows and Linux. The recent 2.0 release (currently in release candidate) packs in several enhancements—most notably Python/C++ API support, easy-to-onboard tutorials (as Python notebooks) […]

Video Abstract: AI for Earth

1 week ago
Human society is faced with an unprecedented challenge to mitigate and adapt to changing climates, ensure resilient water supplies, sustainably feed a population of 10 billion, and stem a catastrophic loss of biodiversity. Time is too short, and resources too thin, to achieve these outcomes without the exponential power and assistance of AI. Early efforts […]

Azure4Research helps Polish university accelerate biomedical analysis 59 times

2 weeks ago
The Laboratory of Biomedical Database Systems at the Silesian University of Technology provides various algorithmic solutions for protein analysis. Protein analysis is key for medical diagnostics and requires efficient computational resources since there are terabytes of data coming from patient samples. Laboratories do not usually have the appropriate hardware equipment to process these data in […]
