How the ICCV2023 conference went

Attending the International Conference on Computer Vision 2023 gave our team an incredible snapshot into the future potentials associated with Artificial Intelligence! It was exciting and valuable to have such a great experience. We presented our latest Computer Vision technologies, from generative data augmentation tool to 3D precise pose tracking, which was available to try in the Dance challenge.

Let's take a look at what it was like:

The Rewind Pendant, an innovative wearable microphone, promises users the ability to record and transcribe their daily conversations. Designed to help users stay present at the moment, the pendant offers an array of potential use cases, from grocery reminders and capturing kids' adorable sayings to automatic to-do list generation and self-insight through voice analysis. The device stores all recordings on the user's smartphone, ensuring data remains private.

Rewind AI, known for its software that records digital device activities, views the pendant as a transition from recording the digital realm to capturing real-world interactions. The Rewind Pendant is available for pre-order at $59, with no official release date announced. With backing from notable investors, including OpenAI's Sam Altman, the company is financially stable, securing funds to operate for the next six years.

Stability.AI has introduced the Stable LM 3B, a compact open-source language model designed for portability across various digital devices. With 3 billion parameters, this model is not just optimized for size; it boasts competitive performance, outpacing several models of similar size and even challenging some 7B-parameter models.

A key feature of Stable LM 3B is its efficiency. Requiring fewer resources and with reduced operating costs, it offers an eco-friendlier option by consuming minimal power. Furthermore, it can be adapted for a variety of applications, particularly in creating technology with conversational capabilities. Its improved text generation and rapid execution speed enhance its usability.

The model can be downloaded on the Hugging Face platform.

A recent Stanford study explored the capabilities of large language models (LLMs), specifically GPT-4, in the realm of research paper reviews. The findings were promising, indicating that such models can offer feedback akin to human experts.

Highlights of the Study:

GPT-4 was tested on an extensive dataset comprising over 3,000 papers from the Nature journal and 1,700 from the ICLR conference

Over 30% of the feedback given by the model mirrored comments made by human reviewers, a rate matching the consistency seen between two human reviewers

Among the study participants, 57% found the feedback from GPT-4 beneficial in enhancing their papers, and impressively, 20% felt the AI's review surpassed human feedback

The study adds valuable insight into the ongoing discussion about AI's potential role in the scientific realm. It makes one wonder about the future: Could artificial intelligence conduct research, peer review, and even publication, with humans merely providing direction?

Anthropic, an artificial intelligence company, is in talks to raise $2 billion in funding. This comes after Amazon.com Inc. agreed to invest $4 billion in the company.

Anthropic, founded in 2021 by former OpenAI employees, advocates for responsible and ethical technology. Their chatbot, named Claude, is designed to be a more compassionate version of AI, able to perform various writing tasks such as writing resumes, coding, and answering questions.

This funding round, if successful, will mark another great deal for fundamental modeling startups. Major tech giants are claiming a significant role in the future of AI. For example, Google previously invested $450 million in Anthropic, while Amazon announced not only its financial support but also its role as a major cloud computing provider supplying the necessary chips.

Why it's important to calibrate multiple cameras — and how to do it right

In the previous article, we talked about the importance of the camera calibration process, which is employed by computer vision and machine learning algorithms. We discussed how to do this by placing a pattern or, in some cases, using surrounding objects as a pattern in the camera's field of view. But if there is more than one camera, things get complicated!
