Neural scene representation and rendering | DeepMind
We introduce the Generative Query Network (GQN), a framework within which machines learn to perceive their surroundings by training only on data obtained by themselves as they move around scenes. Much like infants and animals, the GQN learns by trying to make sense of its observations of the world around it. In doing so, the GQN learns about plausible scenes and their geometrical properties, without any human labelling of the contents of scenes.

The Case for the Subway - The New York Times
aners, inspectors, flaggers and other orange-vested M.T.A. employees — charged with preventing these incidents and keeping the trains moving.

Taped to the classroom wall were yellowing tabloid clips of a different kind of subway horror story — “MAN UNDER!, RAIL HORROR: HIT THIRD TRACK AND LIVED!” — a...
