Mimicking the brain: Deep learning meets vector-symbolic AI

To better simulate how the human brain makes decisions, we’ve combined the strengths of symbolic AI and neural networks. Specifically, we combined the learning representations that neural networks create with the symbol-like entities represented by high-dimensional and distributed vectors. The idea is to guide a neural network to represent unrelated objects with dissimilar high-dimensional vectors.

IBM AI helps to break down massive code to ease cloud migration

We use AI to automatically break down the overall application by representing application code as graphs. Our AI relies on Graph Representation Learning – a popular method in deep learning. Graphs are a natural representation for software and applications. We translated the application to a graph where the programs become nodes. Their relationships with other programs become edges and determine the boundary to separate the nodes of common business functionality.

Peeking into AI’s ‘black box’ brain — with physics

Our team has developed Physics-informed Neural Networks (PINN) models where physics is integrated into the neural network’s learning process – dramatically boosting the AI’s ability to produce accurate results. Described in our recent paper, PINN models are made to respect physics laws that force boundaries on the results and generate a realistic output.

Interpretability and Performance: Can the Same Model Achieve Both?

Interpretability and performance of a system are usually at odds with each other, as many of the best-performing models (viz. deep neural networks) are black box in nature. In our work, improving simple models, we try to bridge this gap by proposing a method to transfer information from a high-performing neural network to another model […]

Fighting Offensive Language on Social Media with Unsupervised Text Style Transfer

Online social media has become one of the most important ways to communicate and exchange ideas. Unfortunately, the discourse is often crippled by abusive language that can have damaging effects on social media users. For instance, a recent survey by YouGov.uk discovered that, among the information employers can find online about job candidates, aggressive or […]
