CS Research, Secrecy vs. Innovation, Computational Creativity, and Bot Design Patterns
- Introducing Research for Practice (ACM) — Expert-curated guides to the best of CS research. […] ACM has graciously agreed to provide open access to any Research for Practice paper citations available in the ACM Digital Library. Bravo ACM!
- Apple’s Secrecy Hinders Innovation — Consider a top newly minted AI Ph.D. candidate considering a machine learning job at Apple, Google, or Facebook. He or she could debate the offers from Google and Facebook equally. But Apple would be a distant third choice because it would mean the candidate would have to limit his or her relationship with the worldwide AI research community.
- Manufacturing Magic and Computational Creativity — This paper describes techniques in computational creativity, blending mathematical modeling and psychological insight, to generate new magic tricks. The details of an explicit computational framework capable of creating new magic tricks are summarized, and evaluated against a range of contemporary theories about what constitutes a creative system.
- Bot Design Patterns — six patterns of bot. (via O’Reilly)
