Origen: Apple Machine Learning Journal

From Benedict’s newsletter

Apple has launched a machine learning blog. This of itself would be trivial at any other company, but Apple has no other blogs and its focus on secrecy (partly, a just focus on controlling the message) has been cited as a problem in recruiting machine learning talent, out of which comes for academia and sees publishing as an essential building block of a career. So, this is art of Apple’s moves to position itself as offering AI researchers some interesting problems. First post: using synthetic images to train recognition models – which of course is something you do it you want to preserve privacy, another Apple trope.
