Google AI Introduces Performer: A Generalized Attention Framework based on the Transformer architecture

Posted by in categories: media & arts, robotics/AI

Transformer model, a deep learning framework, has achieved state-of-the-art results across diverse domains, including natural language, conversation, images, and even music. The core block of any Transformer architecture is the attention module, which computes similarity scores for all pairs of positions in an input sequence. Since it requires quadratic computation time and quadratic memory size of the storing matrix, with the increase in the input sequence’s length, its efficiency decreases.

Thus, for long-range attention, one of the most common methods is sparse attention. It reduces the complexity by computing selective similarity scores from the sequence, based on various methods. There are still certain limitations like unavailability of efficient sparse-matrix multiplication operations on all accelerators, lack of theoretical guarantees, insufficiency to address the full range of problems, etc.

Using math to study paintings to learn more about the evolution of art history

Posted by in categories: evolution, information science, mathematics, media & arts

A team of researchers affiliated with a host of institutions in Korea and one in Estonia has found a way to use math to study paintings to learn more about the evolution of art history in the western world. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes how they scanned thousands of paintings and then used mathematical algorithms to find commonalities between them over time.

Beauty, as the saying goes, is in the eye of the beholder—and so it is also with art. Two people looking at the same can walk away with vastly different impressions. But art also serves, the researchers contend, as a barometer for visualizing the emotional tone of a given society. This suggests that the study of art history can serve as a channel of sorts—illuminating societal trends over time. The researchers further note that to date, most studies of art history have been qualitatively based, which has led to interpretive results. To overcome such bias, the researchers with this new effort looked to mathematics to see if it might be useful in uncovering features of paintings that have been overlooked by human scholars.

The work involved digitally scanning 14,912 paintings—all of which (except for two) were painted by Western artists. The data for each of the paintings was then sent through a mathematical that drew partitions on the based on contrasting colors. The researchers ran the algorithm on each painting multiple times, each time creating more partitions. As an example, the first run of the algorithm might have simply created two partitions on a painting—everything on land, and everything in the sky. The second might have split the land into buildings in one partition and farmland in another.

Cars Will Soon Be Able to Sense and React to Your Emotions

Posted by in categories: education, media & arts, robotics/AI, transportation

Except someone—or, rather, something— can hear: your car. Hearing your angry words, aggressive tone, and raised voice, and seeing your furrowed brow, the onboard computer goes into “soothe” mode, as it’s been programmed to do when it detects that you’re angry. It plays relaxing music at just the right volume, releases a puff of light lavender-scented essential oil, and maybe even says some meditative quotes to calm you down.

What do you think—creepy? Helpful? Awesome? Weird? Would you actually calm down, or get even more angry that a car is telling you what to do?
