New Google Service Makes Machine Learning More Accessible


Google on Wednesday released its Cloud AutoML Vision service in Alpha. It is the first in a planned series of Cloud AutoML services designed to help people with limited machine learning expertise build their own custom models using advanced techniques such as learning2learn and transfer learning. Learning2learn is a process for automating machine learning, while transfer learning “takes a fully trained model for a set of categories and retrains it from the existing weights for new classes,” a Google Cloud spokesperson said.

The Vision Thing


Salesforce earlier this year introduced its Einstein Vision capability, an idea with a lot of promise but not a great deal of precedent. Who had applications that could see, and how would this be used? For decades, we’ve been content with scanning documents and analyzing them with optical character recognition tools, or we’ve used bar codes and QR codes — but it all came down to recognizing simple symbols. Suddenly there was something much closer to human reading that needed explaining — visual search.

Musk Plots Out Tesla's Next 10 Years


Elon Musk on Wednesday introduced a second master plan for Tesla, a follow-up to the vision he shared 10 years ago. The original master plan is now in the final stages of execution, he said. The refresh sketches out a multiyear, four-pronged strategy that is about more than vehicles. Musk also plans to advance an integrated solar-roof-with-battery product, create a ride-sharing program, and further develop the Tesla autopilot technology. Investors seemed unimpressed — Tesla stock fell Thursday following the announcement.

Microsoft Is Looking More Like the House Nadella Built


Some aspects of CEO Satya Nadella’s vision for Microsoft are becoming more clear. For one thing, the company’s interest in advertising is seriously on the wane. Microsoft reportedly has handed off most of its digital advertising sales business to AOL. Microsoft will retain control of its search advertising sales, however, and Bing will replace Google as the engine powering AOL’s consumer searches. Microsoft’s housecleaning didn’t end with ad sales, though. Uber reportedly has inked a deal to take over some of Bing’s mapping activities.
