Researchers Use AI to Help Earbud Users Mute Background Noise - Ep. 180

Thanks to earbuds, people can take calls anywhere, while doing anything. The problem: those on the other end of the call can hear all the background noise, too, whether it?s the roommate?s vacuum cleaner or neighboring conversations at a café. Now, work by a trio of graduate students at the University of Washington, who spent the pandemic cooped up together in a noisy apartment, lets those on the other end of the call hear just the speaker ? rather than all the surrounding sounds. Users found that the system, dubbed ?ClearBuds? ? presented last month at the ACM International Conference on Mobile Systems, Applications and Services ? improved background noise suppression much better than a commercially available alternative. AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz caught up with the team at ClearBuds to discuss the unlikely pandemic-time origin story behind a technology that promises to make calls clearer and easier, wherever we go.

AI Pioneer Kai-Fu Lee Discusses His New Work of Fiction - Ep. 158

One of AI?s greatest champions has turned to fiction to answer the question: how will technology shape our world in the next 20 years? Kai-Fu Lee, CEO of Sinovation Ventures and a former president of Google China, spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about AI 2041: Ten Visions for Our Future. The book, his fourth available in the U.S. and first work of fiction, was in collaboration with Chinese sci-fi writer Chen Qiufan, also known as Stanley Chan. Lee and Chan blend their expertise in scientific forecasting and speculative fiction in this collection of short stories, which was published in September. Among Lee?s books is the New York Times bestseller AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order, which he spoke about on a 2018 episode of the AI Podcast.

Real or Not Real? Attorney Steven Frank Uses Deep Learning to Authenticate Art - Ep. 157

Leonardo da Vinci?s portrait of Jesus, known as Salvator Mundi, was sold at a British auction for nearly half a billion dollars in 2017, making it the most expensive painting ever to change hands. However, even art history experts were skeptical about whether the work was an original of the master rather than one of his many protégés. Steven Frank is a partner at the law firm Morgan Lewis, specializing in intellectual property and commercial technology law. He?s also half of the husband-wife team that used convolutional neural networks to determine that this painting was likely an authentic da Vinci. He spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about working with his wife, Andrea Frank, a professional curator of art images, to authenticate artistic masterpieces with AI?s help.

Wild Things: NVIDIA?s Sifei Liu Talks 3D Reconstructions of Endangered Species - Ep. 152

Endangered species can be difficult to study, as they are elusive, and the very act of observing them can disrupt their lives. Now, scientists can take a closer look at endangered species by studying AI-generated 3D representations of them. Sifei Liu, a senior research scientist at NVIDIA, has worked with her team to create an algorithm that can reconstruct 3D meshes ? graphics models used to display the edges, vertices and overall shape of an object ? from 2D inputs like images and videos. Liu spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about her team?s project, called Online Adaptation for Consistent Mesh Reconstruction in the Wild. Liu and her team have presented the project at various prominent conferences, including NeurIPS 2020.

GE's Danielle Merfeld and Arvind Rangarajan on AI and Renewable Energy - Ep. 150

At GE Renewable Energy, CTO Danielle Merfeld and technical leader Arvind Rangarajan are among those making advances throughout renewable energy. Merfeld and Rangarajan spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about how the company uses AI and a human-in-the-loop process to make renewable energy more widespread. The International Energy Agency has set a goal to reach a net zero energy sector by 2050. To reach this goal, 88 percent of electricity needs to come from renewable sources. Wind energy will account for 40 percent of that, but today only makes up 8 percent of renewable energy.

Jules Anh Tuan Nguyen Explains How AI Lets Amputee Control Prosthetic Hand, Video Games - Ep. 149

Path-breaking work that translates an amputee?s thoughts into finger motions, and even commands in video games, holds open the possibility of humans controlling just about anything digital with their minds. Using GPUs, a group of researchers trained an AI neural decoder able to run on a compact, power-efficient NVIDIA Jetson Nano system on module (SOM) to translate 46-year-old Shawn Findley?s thoughts into individual finger motions. And if that breakthrough weren?t enough, the team then plugged Findley into a PC running Far Cry 5 and Raiden IV, where he had his game avatar move, jump ? even fly a virtual helicopter ? using his mind. It?s a demonstration that not only promises to give amputees more natural and responsive control over their prosthetics. It could one day give users almost superhuman capabilities. The effort is detailed in a draft paper, or pre-print, titled ?A Portable, Self-Contained Neuroprosthetic Hand with Deep Learning-Based Finger Control.? It details an extraordinary cross-disciplinary collaboration behind a system that, in effect, allows humans to control just about anything digital with thoughts. Jules Anh Tuan Nguyen, the paper?s lead author and now a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota, spoke with NVIDIA AI Podcast host Noah Kravitz about his efforts to allow amputees to control their prosthetic limb ? right down to the finger motions ? with their minds.
