Four Short Links
  1. Private Join and Compute (Google) — This functionality allows two users, each holding an input file, to privately compute the sum of associated values for records that have common identifiers. (via Wired)
  2. PyRobot — from CMU and Facebook. PyRobot is a framework and ecosystem that enables AI researchers and students to get up and running with a robot in just a few hours, without specialized knowledge of the hardware or of details such as device drivers, control, and planning.

  4. PartNeta consistent, large-scale dataset of 3D objects annotated with fine-grained, instance-level, and hierarchical 3D part information. Our dataset consists of 573,585 part instances over 26,671 3D models covering 24 object categories. This dataset enables and serves as a catalyst for many tasks such as shape analysis, dynamic 3D scene modeling and simulation, affordance analysis, and others. (via IEEE Spectrum )
  5. Self-Supervised Learning (Andrew Zisserman) — 122 slides, very readable, about learning from images, from video, and from video with sound.
