Challenge Winner, Rewriting Rules, Games for Ground Truth, and Fast Text Processing
- NIH Pill Image Recognition Challenge — congrats to Foo Greg Sadetsky, whose team took 2nd place!
- Time to Rewrite The Rules (Tim O’Reilly) — You can see here that there is a five-player game in which gains (or losses) can be allocated in different proportion to consumers, the company itself, financial markets, workers, or taxpayers. The current rules of our economy have encouraged the allocation of gains to consumers and financial shareholders (now including top company management), and the losses to workers and taxpayers. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
- Ground Truth from Computer Games — clever hack: using photorealistic games to train image segmenting algorithms.
- fastText — a library for efficient learning of word representations and sentence classification. C++, from Facebook, BSD-licensed.
