Smart Enough to Work With Us? Foundations and Challenges for Teamwork-Enabled AI Systems

2 days ago
For much of its history, AI research has aimed toward building intelligent machines independently of their interactions with people. As the world of computing has evolved, and systems pervade ever more facets of life, the challenges of building computer systems smart enough to work effectively with people, in groups as well as individually, has become […]

AI in the Open World

2 days ago
Fielding AI solutions in the open world requires systems to grapple with incompleteness and uncertainty. This session will address several promising areas of research in open world AI, including enhancing robustness via leveraging algorithmic portfolios, learning from experiences in rich simulation environments, harnessing approaches to transfer learning, and learning and personalization from small training sets. […]

Homomorphic Encryption for Arithmetic of Approximate Numbers

4 days ago
We suggest a method to construct a homomorphic encryption scheme for approximate arithmetic. It supports approximate addition and multiplication of encrypted messages, together with the rescaling procedure for managing the magnitude of plaintext. This procedure truncates a ciphertext into a smaller modulus, which results in rounding of plaintext after homomorphic operations. The main idea is […]

Video Abstract: AI for Earth Classification

1 week ago
Understanding the land cover types and locations within specific regions enables effective environmental conservation. With sufficiently high spatial and temporal resolution, scientists and planners can identify which natural resources are at risk and the level of risk. This information helps inform decisions about how and where to focus conservation efforts. Current land cover products don’t […]

Seeing AI app – Product Channel

1 week ago
Product Channel gives audio beeps to help locate barcodes and then scans them to identify products. Seeing AI is a free app that narrates the world around you. Designed for the blind and low vision community, this ongoing research project harnesses the power of AI to open up the visual world and describe nearby people, […]

Video Abstract: Mobile Directions Robot

2 weeks ago
This demo shows our work on a mobile robot that gives directions to visitors. Currently, this robot is navigating Microsoft Building 99, leading people, escorting and interacting with visitors and generally providing a social presence in the building. This robot uses Microsoft’s Platform for Situated Intelligence and Windows components for human interaction, as well as […]

Video Abstract: Microsoft Pix

2 weeks ago
Microsoft Pix helps every photographer take better pictures. Because it incorporates AI behind the lens, it can tweak settings, select the best shots, and enhance them on the fly. It’s designed to help take the guesswork out of getting great photos, so amateur photographers enjoy the moment, instead of struggling to capture it! See more […]

Video Abstract: Machine Teaching Using the Platform for Interactive Concept Learning (PICL)

2 weeks ago
Building machine learning (ML) models is an involved process requiring ML experts, engineers, and labelers. The demand of models for common-sense tasks far exceeds the available “teachers” that can build them. We approach this problem by allowing domain experts to apply what we call Machine Teaching (MT) principles. These include mining domain knowledge, concept decomposition, […]

Video Abstract: Machine Reading Comprehension over Automotive Manual

2 weeks ago
Maluuba’s vision is to build literate machines. The research team has built deep learning models that can process written unstructured text and answer questions against it. The demo will showcase Maluuba’s machine reading comprehension (MRC) system by ingesting a 400-page automotive manual and answering users’ questions about it in real time. The long-term vision for […]

Video Abstract: Interactive Chinese Learning App
