The Wild Week in AI - Facebook shuts down personal assistant; Sophia Robot Hype; Deep Learning generated mockups; and more


The Wild Week in AI

January 15 · Issue #74 · View online

The Wild Week in AI is a weekly AI & Deep Learning newsletter curated by @dennybritz.

If you enjoy the newsletter, please consider sharing it on Twitter, Facebook, etc! Really appreciate the support :)

This Week's Sponsor: builds hearing aids which use deep learning to amplify only the voices and sounds of interest in <10ms realtime. Whisper has 10x the noise reduction of existing products, has the Apple AirPods architect leading hardware, is well-funded by Sequoia Capital, and is working to help +360MM people hear clearly again.
Technical problems include mapping spectrograms to a separable embedding space, model compression, perceptual/adversarial loss functions, and embedded hardware optimization. We’re a small team looking for top engineers excited to advance audio deep learning and help redefine a human sense. You can apply here or email us directly at
