SoftBank’s finite disappointment and infinite hope

25 May 2022  |  analyticsindiamag.com
SoftBank has divested from major tech stocks like Netflix and Facebook, as revealed in their Q2 holding report, contrasting their Q1 report. The company faced significant losses, particularly with its Vision Funds, but CEO Masayoshi Son remains optimistic about future investments in exponential technologies.

What makes Gary Marcus angry?

06 May 2022  |  Analytics India Magazine
Gary Marcus, Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at NYU, expresses his dissatisfaction with the current state of AI, particularly deep learning and AGI. He argues that despite progress in areas like machine translation, AI lacks in machine comprehension and moral reasoning. Marcus advocates for a nativist approach, suggesting that AI should incorporate innate knowledge rather than relying solely on large datasets. He criticizes large language models like GPT-3 for their inability to be responsible and ethical, and he calls for a hybrid approach to AI development that includes both classical and deep learning systems. Marcus's views are presented in the context of his debates with AI figures such as Yann LeCun and Yoshua Bengio, and his critique extends to the Turing Test's relevance in evaluating AI.

The EV industry’s lithium crisis

26 Apr 2022  |  analyticsindiamag.com
Tesla reported a significant profit and emphasized the importance of lithium for the EV supply chain, hiring a geologist to explore mining options. Lithium prices have increased dramatically, and demand is expected to rise substantially by 2030. EV manufacturers are investing in lithium sources to shorten supply chains, with companies like General Motors, Volkswagen, and Tesla taking initiatives. The challenge lies in refining lithium at the required purity levels. Lithium's properties make it ideal for electric vehicle batteries, but the mining industry struggles to process metals to the necessary purity. Major lithium mines exist globally, with new regions expected to contribute to the supply. Managing the supply chain is crucial, with Tesla's mining efforts seen as a positive step.

Netflix Federated Graph Architecture: How is it Searchable?

18 Apr 2022  |  analyticsindiamag.com
Netflix introduced their Studio API and GraphQL Federation in 2020 to simplify the development of their API aggregation layer and to provide a unified API for consumers while allowing backend developers flexibility and service isolation. The federated GraphQL architecture enables independent building and operation of domain graph services under a unified schema. Netflix's Content Engineering has been transitioning to this platform, addressing the challenge of making a federated graph searchable. They developed Studio Search, using Elasticsearch to create a searchable subgraph of the federated graph. The architecture involves 'Change Data Capture' events, Netflix's CDC connectors, and a Data Mesh pipeline to ensure the index is up-to-date and scalable. Netflix's Studio applications produce events to Kafka streams, which are processed by Data Mesh processors and indexed into Elasticsearch.

What is Google’s TRILLsson?

16 Mar 2022  |  analyticsindiamag.com
Google has introduced TRILLsson, a publicly available, on-device version of the CAP12 model, which is designed for paralinguistic speech recognition. TRILLsson is distilled from the 600M parameter CAP12 model, which was trained on the YT-U dataset consisting of over 900M hours of audio from YouTube videos. The CAP12 model excels in the NOSS Benchmark for Paralinguistic Tasks, particularly in emotion recognition. TRILLsson, despite being significantly smaller and trained on less data, performs comparably to CAP12. The research utilized knowledge distillation techniques such as global and local matching to train smaller, faster networks suitable for mobile devices. This advancement in paralinguistic speech models enhances speech recognition, text-to-speech production, and user intent interpretation.

Why is synthetic data suddenly so popular?
