Hey everyone. I hope you are well. In this issue, we dive into an ML research essay on the social dilemma, some exciting deals to make your AI-holiday shopping even better, the misconceptions of AI and the challenges of natural language generation (NLG), an updated chart of all significant neural networks, and the ML research paper highlight of the month.

This issue is brought to you thanks to our friends at Amazon Science:

Interested in working at Amazon? Check out the Amazon Science website to learn more about the company’s unique approach to customer-obsessed science, and how it helps attract some of the brightest minds in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and related fields. Find blog posts and research papers from Amazon scientists and academics, including which conferences they’ll be attending, and how to collaborate. View available jobs.

Before we get started, I wanted to let you know that we have decided to publish the latest machine learning research every weekday after 8 PM ET. All based on your opinion, it seems that you are even hungrier for more — research in AI, CV, NLP, and others. So stay tuned; we’ll keep you updated with what we decide on doing to keep you up to date.

All right, so let’s get to it.

An Essay by ML Researchers on “The Social Dilemma”

Deja Vu much? Researchers at Carnegie Mellon argue on the blog “When Curation Becomes Creation: Algorithms, microcontent, and the vanishing distinction between platforms and creators” the challenges of implementing the right policies and regulations that balance ethics, the economy, individual rights, and proprietary data. The thorough essay showcases the gray areas between every piece of content published and distributed on the internet and what we can do about it.

AI-Holiday Deals

Ho ho ho! I hope I don’t bore you too much with these. But! In case you are looking for a new AI rig, we just updated our shopping recommendations for deep learning laptops or AI workstations. So please take a look, and as always, all feedback is welcome — if you do get one (and have browser cookies enabled), you’ll be supporting us, and we genuinely appreciate it.

AI Misconceptions and the Challenges of NLG

Artificial intelligence’s public point of view can be strongly misguided. This blog post dives on AI facts and myths, highlighting Stanford researcher Abigail See, which showcases some genuinely exciting problems with the public’s understanding of AI, to the challenges of natural language generation, along with what’s in the future for generative models — as more and more become part of our daily lives.

Neural Network Topologies

We just updated our chart on the types of neural networks and their applications, diving from the perceptron all the way to complex neural networks, such as a Neural Turing Machine (NTM), to generative adversarial networks (GANs), and deep convolutional inverse graphics networks.

ML Research Paper Highlight of the Month

Wolfgang Konen and Samineh Bagheri from the University of Applied Sciences in Germany published a cool paper called “Final Adaptation Reinforcement Learning for N-Player Games,” which concentrates n-tuple based reinforcement learning algorithms for games, specifically new ones tackling TD-, SARSA-, and Q-learning. All reproducible and open-source code for the paper is available on Github.

Anyhow, I am super thankful for your time. If you enjoy the newsletter? Please consider subscribing if you haven’t yet or share it with your friends and colleagues — it is genuinely appreciated.

Thank you for joining us! Until next time,
