Uber AI News

  • Improving Pickups with Better Location Accuracy

    Uber launches Beacon V2, a piece of hardware for Uber drivers, that implements on-device sensor fusion using signals from GNSS, IMU, and barometer to improve location accuracy.

  • Uber Goes to NeurIPS!

    We publish our research results to the broader scientific community. This year, Uber is presenting 11 papers at the NeurIPS 2019 conference! We are also sponsoring WiML and Black in AI.

  • Introducing LCA: Loss Change Allocation for Neural Network Training

    We develop a new measure called Loss Change Allocation (LCA) to better understand the training process. LCA measures how much each parameter helps decrease (or increase) the loss at every iteration. It is able to reveal broader patterns such as how training is very noisy, some layers hurt, and micro-learning is synchronized across layers.

  • Ludwig v0.2 Adds New Features and Other Improvements to its Deep Learning Toolbox

    Ludwig 0.2 is released with a host of new functionalities and features. The major ones are the integration with Comet.ml, the addition of BERT among text encoders, the implementation of audio/ speech, H3 (geospatial) and date (temporal) features, substantial improvements on the visualization API, and the inclusion of a serving functionality.

  • Introducing EvoGrad: A Lightweight Library for Gradient-Based Evolution

    Uber AI Labs releases EvoGrad, a library for catalyzing gradient-based evolution research, and Evolvability ES, a new meta-learning algorithm enabled by this library.

  • Introducing the Plato Research Dialogue System: A Flexible Conversational AI Platform

    Plato Research Dialogue System is a platform for building, training, and deploying conversational AI agents that allows us to conduct state of the art research in conversational AI and quickly create prototypes and demonstration systems, as well as facilitate conversational data collection.

  • Deconstructing Lottery Tickets: Zeros, Signs, and the Supermask

    Uber builds upon the Lottery Ticket Hypothesis by proposing explanations behind these mechanisms and deriving a surprising by-product: the Supermask.

  • Introducing the Uber Research Publications Site

    Uber's Chief Scientist announces the launch of the Uber Research Publications Site, a portal for showcasing our contributions to the research community.

  • Modeling Censored Time-to-Event Data Using Pyro, an Open Source Probabilistic Programming Language

    Uber scientists demonstrate how to train time-to-event models from censored data using the Pyro probabilistic programming language.

  • https://eng.uber.com/modeling-censored-time-to-event-data-using-pyro/

    Uber hosted the first-ever Uber Science Symposium, a full-day event of presentations and conversations with stellar speakers and attendees, focusing on reinforcement learning, natural language processing and conversational AI, deep learning and deep learning infrastructure.
