IBM Research Develops AI to Greatly Improve Tea Inspection

When you drink that cup of tea, you sure don’t want any fluff floating there. That’s the most critical step in tea production – removing impurities, be it stems, seeds, stones or even bugs. If they do make it into your drink, the brand may get fined; at the very least, you probably won’t buy […]

More Is Less: Learning Efficient Video Representations

IBM researchers developed a novel low memory footprint and efficient architecture for spatio-temporal analysis of video. The results show strong performance on several benchmarks – and allow training of deeper models using larger sequences of input frames, which will lead to higher accuracy on video action recognition tasks.

Augmenting Humans: IBM’s Project Debater AI gives human debating teams a hand at Cambridge

Two teams, sparring on a controversial topic — whether artificial intelligence would bring more harm than good — the Thursday night debate in front of 300-strong audience seemed rather typical for Cambridge Union, the world’s oldest debating society. Except it wasn’t.
