Hi, I am Louis (loo·ee, French pronunciation), from Montreal, Canada, also known as What’s AI on YouTube or medium. I am focusing on making AI accessible. I explain AI technologies the best way I can and try to demystify the AI “black box” for everyone.

I now have my own website where I share articles 2 days earlier. I also have a newsletter where I share one paper per week, with everything about the paper, a video and article explanation, and the code.

Artificial Intelligence

Find out how this AI Generates Code From Words

Originally published on louisbouchard.ai, read it 2 days before on my blog!

You’ve probably heard of the recent Copilot tool by GitHub, which generates code for you. You can see this tool as an auto-complete++ for code. You give it the name of a function along with some additional info, and it generates the code for you quite accurately! But it won’t just autocomplete your function. Rather, it will try to understand what you are trying to do to generate it. It is also able to generate much bigger and more complete functions than classical autocomplete tools. …


ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MACHINE LEARNING

There are already many machine learning newsletters, but this one is different and made for you! (contains videos, articles, code, demos…)

I know there are already many newsletters nowadays, especially in AI, but this one is different. Most of them have a very similar curation, and you end up receiving the same email from multiple sources. I know this because when I started in AI, I subscribed to all newsletters I could find, most of them listed here. Don’t get me wrong; they are awesome. Unfortunately, most of them list the most popular papers without entering into the details at all. As a researcher, I especially love the new one from Papers with Code. The only thing is that it is…


ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, MACHINE LEARNING

Discover how machines become super-human in most domains they attack using reinforcement learning.

Listen to this story…

You have probably heard that the world champion of chess, go, and even some video games like Dota is a machine. Recent progress in Artificial Intelligence allowed researchers to defeat the best human players in the world in these games, thanks to a technique called Reinforcement Learning. This same technique also allowed robots to walk, open doors, or even play soccer. But what is this technique exactly? …

AI is everywhere; understand how it works and build the most powerful applications

Originally published on louisbouchard.ai, read it 2 days before on my blog!

A Basic Convolutional Neural Network Architecture (CNN) for smoke detection.

This article aims to explain one of the most used artificial intelligence models in the world. I will try to make it very simple, so anyone can understand how it works. AI surrounds our daily lives, and it will only become more present, so you need to understand how it works, where we are at, and what’s to come. The more you learn about AI, the more you will realize that it is not as advanced as most think due to its narrow intelligence, yet it has powerful…

Listen to this article…

Wildfires are more and more present in modern society, mainly caused by heat waves, lightning, droughts, climate change, or even human actions like car fires and cigarette butts. We’ve seen it everywhere recently Brazil, Australia, United States, Canada, etc., destroying plant, human, and animal life, property damage, and contributing to global warming through the high amount of CO2 produced. These countries all have walls of videos like the one below in the county’s fire emergency to see if something is going on.


Thank you for the mention and for sharing this NLP summit. Looks super interesting!


Computer Vision

Using a modified GAN architecture, they can move objects in the image without affecting the background or the other objects!

Listen to this story…

CVPR 2021 Best Paper Award Goes to Michael Niemeyer and Andreas Geiger from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Tubingen for their paper called Giraffe, which looks at the task of controllable image synthesis. In other words, they look at generating new images and controlling what will appear, the objects and their positions and orientations, the background, etc. Using a modified GAN architecture, they can even move objects in the image without affecting the background or the other…

The 3 most interesting AI papers this month with video demos, short articles, code, and paper reference.

Originally published on louisbouchard.ai, read it 2 days before on my blog!

Here are the 3 most interesting research papers of the month, in case you missed any of them. It is a curated list of the latest breakthroughs in AI and Data Science by release date with a clear video explanation, link to a more in-depth article, and code (if applicable). Enjoy the read, and let me know if I missed any important papers in the comments, or by contacting me directly on LinkedIn!

If you’d like to read more research papers as well, I recommend you read my…
