      Google’s WaveNet machine learning-based speech synthesis comes to Assistant

      Last year, Google showed off WaveNet, a new way of generating speech that didn’t rely on a bulky library of word bits or cheap shortcuts that result in stilted speech. WaveNet used machine learning to build a voice sample by sample, and the results were, as I put it then, “eerily convincing.” Previously bound to the lab, the tech has now been deployed in the latest version…

      Google’s AI chief thinks reports of the AI apocalypse are greatly exaggerated

      John Giannandrea from Google had many great things to say about artificial intelligence at TechCrunch Disrupt SF.

    8. Salesforce Einstein celebrates its first birthday with a couple of new features

      Salesforce Einstein celebrates its first birthday with a couple of new features

      Salesforce launched Einstein, its artificial intelligence platform just one year ago this week. As it celebrates its first birthday, it’s worth taking a look back at the first year and looking at a couple of enhancements they’re adding as a birthday surprise. It’s easy to lose sight of the fact that Einstein isn’t actually a product at all, even though Salesforce markets…

    11. Yuri Milner’s conservative predictions for the consumer Internet in 20 years

      Without even counting massive potential sea changes like artificial intelligence or “flying cars,” as DST founder Yuri Milner says, the consumer internet is still on track to grow in value by another ten times in the next 20 years — just like it did in the past ten years. That’s Milner’s “conservative” prediction that doesn’t account for those…

    12. SpeechCoach.ai helps you step up your public speaking game

      Public speaking can be terrifying. Before every TechCrunch Disrupt, moderators are required to go through mandatory speaker training to ensure we’re not flaming disasters on stage. Our bosses bring in a real-life human to train us and point out how often we use filler words or simply don’t make any sense at all. SpeechCoach.ai, a project that came out of Disrupt SF 2017’s…

    13. MIT’s new Ford-funded robot can deftly navigate pedestrian traffic

      Robots have a lot of challenges remaining before they become commonplace in our lives, and many of those are likely not even something you’d think about when trying to make a list.

MIT engineers have created a new autonomous robot that can do exactly that, however, in a…

    14. Salesforce is using AI to democratize SQL so anyone can query databases in natural language

      SQL is about as easy as it gets in the world of programming and yet its learning curve is still steep enough to prevent many people from interacting with relational databases. Salesforce’s AI research team took it upon itself to explore how machine learning might be able to open doors for those without knowledge of SQL in a recent paper. The work, Seq2SQL: Generating Structured…

      NASA is using Intel’s deep learning to find better landing sites on the moon

      NASA collects a lot of data. It’s one of the main things it does when it’s not landing things on other things. But actually deriving useful information from all the data it collects is another issue entirely, so the space agency has begun enlisting some big tech names like Intel to crunch some of those numbers. That partnership includes Nervana, the deep learning startup the chip…

      LiftIgniter raises $6.4M to bring website personalization to the rest of the Internet

      You’ve probably had the experience of going to a website and seeing a lot of content that’s not really relevant. For the most part, a lot of this is organized in a way that’s either pre-defined or based on a limited number of signals that aims to sort of personalize the experience for a normal user.

    18. Google acquires AIMatter, maker of the Fabby computer vision app

      Computer vision — the branch of artificial intelligence that lets computers “see” and process images like humans do (and, actually, often better than us), and then use those images to help run programmes — is at the heart of how the next generation of tech is developing, and this week Google made an acquisition this week to help it along with its own efforts in this…
