Who doesn’t love a summer holiday? Whether it’s a staycation, or you’re packing up the whole family to jet off for some summer sun, it’s something we look forward to all year. Until you remember that it’s actually a bit of a logistical nightmare.
Where are you going? Have you booked? How are you going to get there? Got some music to listen to on the way? Summer wardrobe ready? Got the camera ready to go?

For the past three years RE•WORK have hosted the Deep Learning Summit in San Francisco, and we are coming back again this January for what is set to be our biggest event to date. The event has grown from a single track summit to a triple stranded summit with over 1000 attendees.
This year will see the sixteenth global Deep Learning Summit and the fifth global AI Assistant Summit joined by the first ever Deep Learning for Enterprise Summit. Although these events have been expanded due to popular demand they have previously sold out, so register now to guarantee your spot.

There are an increasing number of female entrepreneurs in technology with CEO’s and COO’s like Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook, and Susan Wojcicki of Youtube leading the way, but it isn’t enough to break the stereotype of a male dominance in the industry. In the UK fewer than 10% of computing engineers are women, and there are over 13,000 more male than female students in computer science.
But why does it matter?

Despite constant concern that technology is eliminating the need for human interaction in daily life, high street shopping is still very much alive. Companies like Amazon may be without physical stores but the want to nip into a retailer to pick something up as you’re passing by or to try on ten or even twenty different pairs of shoes at once go won’t go away. At least not in the foreseeable future. So how is AI enhancing the retail experience, both on and offline?

Whilst a new study carried out by Verto Analytics revealed that phone based virtual assistants saw declines in terms of monthly users, it would appear that those which cater to home devices grew. Siri may still be the most widely used personal assistant with around 41.4 million users, but it’s monthly users dropped by 15% on this time last year. In comparison, the monthly unique users of Google and Alexa have substantially increased with Alexa’s user figures increasing by more than 200%.
Regardless of this shift in device preference, virtual assistants are on the rise, and as their intelligence improves they are being used as solutions to a multitude of problems not only for personal use on your phone and in the home, but in a variety of businesses and industries.

Google DeepMind, the ‘world leader in artificial intelligence research and its application for positive impact’, have created a AI that has learned to walk without any prior guidance. The figure moves through virtual environments with the goal of one day helping robots to navigate in complex and unfamiliar spaces environments.
But what does this mean?

You’ve shot some brilliant footage, it’s been edited together to really show off your company, and now all that’s missing is the music. You know what you’re after - something that sounds like Bonobo for that product demo, and a track along the lines of Daft Punk for your trailer. Problem is, you don’t want to pay the extortionate royalties. There’s only so much scouring the internet you can do for royalty free tracks before you realise that they’re all pretty low quality.
Jukedeck, a London based startup, are working to overcome this problem and have built a machine learning driven product that can compose professional-standard music to give companies (and individuals) personalised music that’s ‘dynamically shaped to their needs’.

It’s been a busy 6 months here at RE•WORK! We kicked off the new year by hosting our third annual San Francisco Deep Learning Summit in January to our largest ever audience! It’s been fantastic to see the community grow year upon year. We've heard from experts like presenting their work from companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, ASOS and many more. What did you miss?

Understanding the real world involves recognising objects, their physical locations and different relationships between them. This level of understanding is much deeper than a 3D reconstruction and camera pose and to date has heavily relied on supervised training, which is time consuming, expensive, and limited. OpenAI are currently working to overcome this by using working with photo-realistic simulations and computer graphics to provide the necessary data to ameliorate the problem and help to get a better understanding of the real world.
