MeshCNN: A Network with an Edge ranahanocka.github.io/MeshCNN/

After point clouds (PoinNet style) this is an extension of neural networks to work directly on 3D meshes with mesh convolutions, pooling and unpooling operators.

Difficult problems in the real world often require thinking more than one step in advance. Researchers from @IBMResearch@twitter.com discuss how we can teach the human concept of "planning" to AI.

Supet cool finding!

"Overall, attaining models that are robust and interpretable will require explicitly encoding human priors into the training process."

Adversarial Examples Are Not Bugs, They Are Features

"adversarial examples can be directly attributed to the presence of non-robust features ... patterns in the data distribution that are highly predictive, yet brittle and incomprehensible to humans"

Something nice: the great video game critic @Campster@twitter.com (re-posted) a video of him trying out something new which he thought "didn't work", and the comments are FULL of positivity as well as real constructive feedback. The internet ain't so bad sometimes...

Interesting thought: Twitter (and other social media) enable more widespread and distributed , as opposed to a few high profile scientists doing most of the communication to broader public. Surely a good thing!

RT @julianjon@twitter.com

If you have a problem w scientists on Twitter, then don't follow them. A few reasons why I love Twitter: (1) we show scientists are ppl too, (2) learn sci outside my own discipline, (3) share gr8 work from colleagues, and (4) my mom isn't on here yet. twitter.com/Alex_Washburne/sta
