What's new this week?

AI trends report. AWS re:Invent 2021 — Anything interesting? News on DeepMind's AI. New Relic's performance monitoring. The most powerful NLP model and the latest from AI in physics.

  • About 20% of tech leaders say that AI and machine learning, cloud computing, and 5G will be the most important technologies next year. Learn about the survey in more detail!
  • AWS re:Invent 2021 ended last week. Was it anything interesting? Yes and no! But AWS for sure did its best to release a range of products to strengthen its suite of AI/ML services.
  • DeepMind has created a system called Player of Games that can perform well at both perfect information games as well as imperfect information games. Here's how!
  • New Relic has announced a solution to monitor the performance and accuracy of ML models in real-time by extending the capabilities of its flagship observability platform — New Relic One.
  • Naver has announced the release of HyperCLOVA, one of the largest AI language models. It has learned 6,500 times more Korean data than GPT-3 and contains 204 billion parameters.
  • MIT researchers have created a DL model that predicts the 3D shapes of a molecule solely based on a graph in 2D of its molecular structure. Molecules are represented as small graphs.

Funding News

  • NewtonX, the leading B2B market research and intelligence company, raises $32M in a Series B funding round led by Marbruck Investments.
  • Synthesia, a company leveraging AI to generate videos of avatars, closes a $50M Series B round led by Kleiner Perkins. The total raised has reached $66.5M.
