  • XNOR-Net: ImageNet Classification Using Binary Convolutional Neural Networks

    Mohammad Rastegari, Vicente Ordonez, Joseph Redmon, and Ali FarhadiECCV2016 We propose two efficient approximations to standard convolutional neural networks: Binary-Weight-Networks and XNOR-Networks. In Binary-Weight-Networks, the filters are approximated with binary values resulting in 32x memory saving. In XNOR-Networks, both the…
  • You Only Look Once: Unified, Real-Time Object Detection

    Joseph Redmon, Santosh Divvala, Ross Girshick, and Ali FarhadiCVPR2016 We present YOLO, a new approach to object detection. Prior work on object detection repurposes classifiers to perform detection. Instead, we frame object detection as a regression problem to spatially separated bounding boxes and associated class…
  • AI assisted ethics

    Amitai Etzioni and Oren EtzioniEthics2016 The growing number of 'smart' instruments, those equipped with AI, has raised concerns because these instruments make autonomous decisions; that is, they act beyond the guidelines provided them by programmers. Hence, the question the makers and users of smart…
  • My Computer is an Honor Student — but how Intelligent is it? Standardized Tests as a Measure of AI

    Peter Clark and Oren EtzioniAI Magazine2016 Given the well-known limitations of the Turing Test, there is a need for objective tests to both focus attention on, and measure progress towards, the goals of AI. In this paper we argue that machine performance on standardized tests should be a key component…
  • Closing the Gap Between Short and Long XORs for Model Counting

    Shengjia Zhao, Sorathan Chaturapruek, Ashish Sabharwal, and Stefano ErmonAAAI2016 Many recent algorithms for approximate model counting are based on a reduction to combinatorial searches over random subsets of the space defined by parity or XOR constraints. Long parity constraints (involving many variables) provide strong theoretical…
  • Combining Retrieval, Statistics, and Inference to Answer Elementary Science Questions

    Peter Clark, Oren Etzioni, Daniel Khashabi, Tushar Khot, Ashish Sabharwal, Oyvind Tafjord, and Peter TurneyAAAI2016 What capabilities are required for an AI system to pass standard 4th Grade Science Tests? Previous work has examined the use of Markov Logic Networks (MLNs) to represent the requisite background knowledge and interpret test questions, but did not improve upon…
  • Exact Sampling with Integer Linear Programs and Random Perturbations

    Carolyn Kim, Ashish Sabharwal, and Stefano ErmonAAAI2016 We consider the problem of sampling from a discrete probability distribution specified by a graphical model. Exact samples can, in principle, be obtained by computing the mode of the original model perturbed with an exponentially many i.i.d. random variables…
  • Hierarchical Semi-supervised Classification with Incomplete Class Hierarchies

    Bhavana Dalvi, Aditya Mishra, and William W. CohenWSDM2016 In an entity classification task, topic or concept hierarchies are often incomplete. Previous work by Dalvi et al. has shown that in non-hierarchical semi-supervised classification tasks, the presence of such unanticipated classes can cause semantic drift for…
  • Keeping AI Legal

    Amitai Etzioni and Oren EtzioniVanderbilt2016 AI programs make numerous decisions on their own, lack transparency, and may change frequently. Hence, the article shows, unassisted human agents — such as auditors, accountants, inspectors, and police — cannot ensure that AI guided instruments will abide by…
  • Learning Continuous-Time Bayesian Networks in Relational Domains: A Non-Parametric Approach

    Shuo Yang, Tushar Khot, Kristian Kersting, and Sriraam NatarajanAAAI2016 Many real world applications in medicine, biology, communication networks, web mining, and economics, among others, involve modeling and learning structured stochastic processes that evolve over continuous time. Existing approaches, however, have focused on…
