Hi all!
Are you still stressed about your NIPS submission, anxious about the EMNLP deadline or just annoyed because—let’s face it—it’s Monday again? Grab a coffee ☕️ and relax with this fortnight’s edition!
This time, we have: overviews of semantic segmentation, object detection models, and network graph methods; two articles on the showdown between algorithms vs. compute; essays with different perspectives on AI, from fear and caution to cooperation; articles on advances in machine translation and semantic similarity; profiles of Ian Goodfellow, Jürgen Schmidhuber, and the new #1 Kaggler; a new Maths for ML book; industry news including using synthetic training data and uncertainty for dialogue; and research papers from ACL 2018.

TIL that changing random stuff until your program works is "hacky" and "bad coding practice" but if you do it fast enough it's "#MachineLearning" and pays 4x your current salary
