Apple Company was worldwide known for its exquisite mobile devices and its impenetrable policy on secrecy regarding their projects. However, a month ago the organization shocked the world with a new approach. They announced their researchers on artificial intelligence are from then on allowed to publish their scientific papers. As a consequence, just a few weeks after this announcement, people got to read “Learning from Simulated and Unsupervised Images through Adversarial Training.” This is an article published in The Cornwell University Library on December 22nd about Apple’s new AI research.
The paper focuses on the latest technology dealing with intelligent image recognition. The research found a way to develop a new technique. This innovative move makes it possible for a program to identify and decipher images that are computer-generated.
This paper is an important breakthrough since this was far from possible until recently. The researchers at Apple identified the weak link that prevented this digital phenomenon from happening earlier than this. It seems that synthetic data was too stiff and couldn’t comprehend the entire reality as a whole. This hindered it to perform complex tasks such as reading a computer-generated image.
The paper takes advantage of the latest breakthroughs in the graphic sector and tries to close this gap between digital and real world. The researchers used the Simulated and Unsupervised learning technique to improve synthetic data and recreate it closer to reality. They use a simulator to generate synthetic images that resemble real objects based on unlabeled real data.
The main process of the new AI is based on competition. There are two active neural networks, and each of them tries to be better than the other. One of them is the generator that is in charge of creating realistic, yet synthetic pictures. The other neural network is the discriminator which has the mission to identify the real images among the fake ones.
This paper is of significant importance. First of all, Apple is one of the leading tech companies that improved the modern world with quality devices and as of recently an AI personal assistant. It is the first time Apple unveiled its ongoing efforts to make today’s products even better in the future. The paper can be used by many companies as the basis of new AI goods. If the company keeps up with these valuable reveals, their latest tech discoveries will improve the whole world.
