Summary of the top articles and papers


Milestones in Speaker Recognition
Speaker recognition has been a topic of interest for researchers for many decades. The recent advancements in AI have changed the landscape, and this article aims to provide a detailed review of these changes, as well as the historical context. Check it out!

Graph Neural Networks in TensorFlow
TensorFlow GNN 1.0 is a production-tested library for building GNNs at large scales. It supports both modeling and training in TensorFlow as well as the extraction of input graphs from huge data stores. Learn more about its role in modeling the relations between objects!

Building, Evaluating and Tracking a Local Advanced RAG System | Mistral 7b + LlamaIndex + W&B
RAG is an NLP technique that combines LLMs with selective access to knowledge to reduce LLM hallucinations. This article shows how to build a RAG system using a locally running LLM, which techniques can be used to improve it, and how to track the experiments.

Unlocking LLM’s Potential with RAG: A Complete Guide from Basics to Advanced Techniques
LLMs are increasingly powerful, yet often not ideal for handling new information. To improve this, experts created RAG, a method that helps LLMs search for extra information from the internet or other places when they need to answer questions. Dive into the topic!

Transformers from Scratch
This detailed article demonstrates how to create and train a transformer from scratch. It goes through each foundational element step by step and explains what is happening along the way. It is written in a Jupyter notebook so you can use it to run the code yourself.

Papers & projects

World Model on Million-Length Video And Language With RingAttention
RingAttention is a new technique that allows to scalably train on long sequences using a large dataset of diverse videos and books. This paper looks into how it can be used to help LLMs develop an understanding of both human textual knowledge and the physical world, enabling broader AI capabilities for assisting humans.

InseRF: Text-Driven Generative Object Insertion in Neural 3D Scenes
InseRF is a novel method for generative object insertion in the NeRF reconstructions of 3D scenes. Based on a user-provided textual description and a 2D bounding box in a reference viewpoint, it generates new objects in 3D scenes. InseRF is capable of controllable and 3D-consistent object insertion without requiring explicit 3D information as input.

Multi-Track Timeline Control for Text-Driven 3D Human Motion Generation
Recent advances in generative modeling have led to promising progress on synthesizing 3D human motion from text. However, using a single text prompt as input lacks the fine-grained control needed by animators. This paper describes an intuitive, yet fine-grained, input interface for users, allowing them to timeline control for text-driven motion synthesis.

MagicVideo-V2: Multi-Stage High-Aesthetic Video Generation
MagicVideo-V2 is a new tool that integrates the text-to-image model, video motion generator, reference image embedding module and frame interpolation module into an end-to-end video generation pipeline. Benefiting from these architecture designs, MagicVideo-V2 can generate an aesthetically pleasing, high-resolution video with remarkable fidelity.

En3D: An Enhanced Generative Model for Sculpting 3D Humans from 2D Synthetic Data
En3D is an enhanced generative scheme for sculpting high-quality 3D human avatars. The method described in the paper allows to develop a zero-shot 3D generative scheme capable of producing visually realistic, geometrically accurate and content-wise diverse 3D humans without relying on pre-existing 3D or 2D assets.
