Human eyes assist drones, teach machines to see
Human eyes assist drones, teach machines to see
21.03.16 - Drone images accumulate much faster than they can be analyzed. Researchers have developed a new approach that combines crowdsourcing and machine learning to speed up the process. Who would win in a real-life game of "Where's Waldo," humans or computers? A recent study suggests that when speed and accuracy are critical, an approach combing both human and machine intelligence would take the prize.

Revealing the mysteries of the Maya script
Revealing the mysteries of the Maya script
02.11.15 - EPFL researchers have come up with an algorithm to analyze Mayan writing. This project could one day contribute to translating this complex and still partially unknown language. While some five million people still speak a language that evolved out of Mayan civilization in South America, the written language has suffered a different fate.

One click away from the perfect outfit
One click away from the perfect outfit
Whether shopping online or offline, everyone knows how difficult it can be to find the right outfit. Fashwell, an ETH spin-off, now has a remedy for that. Its app unites social media and online shopping to help users track down the clothes they like. Anyone who thinks fashion and computer science are two irreconcilable concepts and that fashion is inherently out of place in a technical course would quickly change their opinion with a single visit to the ETH spin-off Fashwell.

A major proof of concept for brain simulation
A major proof of concept for brain simulation
08.10.15 - An international team led by EPFL scientists have completed a first draft computer reconstruction of a piece of the neocortex. The electrical behavior of the virtual brain tissue was simulated on supercomputers and found to match the behavior observed in a number of experiments on the brain.

Learning like machines
Learning like machines
Neurobiologists have shown that neurons critical for learning can be divided into two subpopulations with different functions. Almost as if learning processes in the brain mimicked machine learning, one subpopulation is responsible for collecting a broad range of potentially relevant information, while the second subsequently helps to consolidate a successful strategy.
