Apple starts online AI journal to publish research

Apple has started an online journal with artificial intelligence development research papers written by the company’s engineers, making good on its promise to allow employees to publish their findings to the great academic world. Last year Apple announced that it was breaking with its strict privacy rules to allow AI researchers to publish their work, ostensibly because it was becoming increasingly difficult to recruit top talent with such stringent rules in place. So far the site features a welcome message and the first article, “Improving the Realism of Synthetic Images,” an in-depth look at using realistic images to cost-effectively train neural nets.
