AI system learns to model how fabrics interact by watching videos

In a paper published on the preprint server Arxiv.org, researchers at MIT CSAIL, Nvidia, the University of Washington, and the University of Toronto describe an AI system that learns the physical interactions affecting materials like fabric by watching videos. They claim it can extrapolate to interactions it hasn’t seen before, like those involving multiple shirts […]

Vector Institute’s AI makes predictions about random events like market trades

A paper coauthored by researchers at the University of Toronto’s Vector Institute and Google describes an AI technique tailored to health, science, and finance predictions called neural stochastic differential equations (SDEs). It enables the modeling of random events that might affect a person, price, or the state of a complex system — a system comprised of many […]
