Solving Rubik’s Cube with a Robot Hand

We’ve trained a pair of neural networks to solve the Rubik’s Cube with a human-like robot hand. The neural networks are trained entirely in simulation, using the same reinforcement learning code as OpenAI Five paired with a new technique called Automatic Domain Randomization (ADR). The system can handle situations it never saw during training, such as being prodded by a stuffed giraffe.

An Introduction to Recurrent Neural Networks for Beginners – victorzhou.com

Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are a kind of neural network that specialize in processing sequences. They’re often used in Natural Language Processing (NLP) tasks because of their effectiveness in handling text. In this post, we’ll explore what RNNs are, understand how they work, and build a real one from scratch (using only numpy) in Python.

What a little more computing power can do

Neural networks have given researchers a powerful tool for looking into the future and making predictions. But one drawback is their insatiable need for data and computing power (“compute”) to process all that information. At MIT, demand for compute is estimated to be five times greater than what the Institute can offer. To help ease the crunch, industry has stepped in. An $11.

Recurrent Neural Network Tutorial for Artists

This post is not meant to be a comprehensive overview of recurrent neural networks. It is intended for readers without any machine learning background. The goal is to show artists and designers how to use a pre-trained neural network to produce interactive digital works using simple Javascript and p5.js library.

Denoising Dirty Documents: Part 11

In my last blog I showed how to use convolutional neural networks to build a model that removed stains from an image. While convolutional neural networks seem to be well suited for image processing, in this competition I found that deep neural networks performed better. In this blog I show how to build these models.
