Business Insider India: Google researchers discover new algorithm that can render 3D scenes just by a few snapshots

Business Insider India: Google researchers discover new algorithm that can render 3D scenes just by a few snapshots. “Researchers at Google recently developed a new AI algorithm called the Generative Query Network (GQN), that will further reduce the gap between humans, computers and how they see things. We all can perceive our surroundings by just a look, and now computers will be able to accomplish the same. This new type of artificial intelligence algorithm can figure out how an object looks from all angles using visual sensors, it does not need to see the object from all angles to learn.”

Harvey Mudd College: Intelligent Shipwreck Search in Malta

Harvey Mudd College: Intelligent Shipwreck Search in Malta. “For the third and final year of a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded project, Harvey Mudd College students Makoto Nara, Russell Bingham, Samantha Ting and Nandeeka Nara have traveled to Malta with engineering professor Christopher Clark and literature professor Ambereen Dadabhoy. This work, a collaboration with research teams led by Professor Zoe Wood from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and Professor Timmy Gambin from University of Malta, aims to develop new technology for finding undiscovered shipwrecks, mapping them and visualizing them with 3-D reconstructions. Much of the work stems from researching new machine learning algorithms to identify wrecks from sonar data collected by an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), as well AUV path planning algorithms for capturing the best camera images for generating 3-D digital reconstructions.”
