A memristor-based Hopfield neural architecture to solve combinatorial optimization problems

Over the past few years, many researchers have tried to develop techniques and technologies that can solve combinatorial optimization problems, which entail identifying an optimal item or solution within a set number of possibilities. Past studies have tackled these problems using annealing-inspired computing accelerators based on a variety of technological tools, including quantum, optical and electronic devices.

The carbon impact of artificial intelligence

The part that artificial intelligence plays in climate change has come under scrutiny, including from tech workers themselves who joined the global climate strike last year. Much can be done by developing tools to quantify the carbon cost of machine learning models and by switching to a sustainable artificial intelligence infrastructure.

Making deep neural networks right for the right scientific reasons by interacting with their explanations

Deep learning approaches can show excellent performance but still have limited practical use if they learn to predict based on confounding factors in a dataset, for instance text labels in the corner of images. By using an explanatory interactive learning approach, with a human expert in the loop during training, it becomes possible to avoid predictions based on confounding factors.
