Fooling automated surveillance cameras: adversarial patches to attack person detection - 3 views

  •  
    beautiful! anybody knows of similar trials to fool EO data classifiers?
  •  
    I am not aware of any similar trials, yet this study remind me of generative adversarial talking heads https://arxiv.org/pdf/1803.07716.pdf https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1b5aiTrGzY

The Moon's mantle unveiled - 2 views

  •  
    first science results reported in Nature (as far as I know) from the Yutu-2 and Chang'e mission .... and they look very good!
  •  
    Sure they are very useful! It will be even better if they manage to fit the data to modeled circulation of the lunar magma ocean that was formed posterior to the "Theia" body collision with Earth. The collision was the cause of the magma ocean in the first place. The question now is how this circulation pattern of the lava-moon "froze" in time upon phase transition to solid. Because, what crystallizes last in sequence, is more rich in "incompatible" with the crystal structure, elements, we might combine data+models to predict their location. Those incompatible tracers are mainly radioactively decaying elements that produce heat (google publications about lunar KREEP elements (potassium (K), rare earth elements(REE), and phosphorus(P)). By knowing where the KREEP is: - we know where to dig for them mining (if they are useful for something, eg. Phosphorus for plants to be grown on the Moon) - we avoid planning to build the future human colony on top of radioactives, of course. The hope is that the Moon, due to lack of plate tectonics, has preserved this "signature of the freezing sequence". Let's see.

Google AI Blog: Curiosity and Procrastination in Reinforcement Learning - 2 views

  •  
    What happens if you put a TV in the maze your robot is supposed to navigate (driven by curiosity)?
  •  
    Does the fact that I follow this process of learning, make me a meta-learner? Or a pre-robot?
