IQT Labs explores technology opportunities and solutions to problems that have yet to be discovered. By open sourcing our data, code, and research findings, we provide insights and technology beyond the startup for national security and the common good.
In this Q&A on Explainable AI, Andrea Brennen speaks with Lab41 data scientist Nina Lopatina. Nina discusses different approaches to interpreting machine learning systems and points readers to several helpful open source tools and resources.
Dataviz.cafe is a public resource curated by IQT Labs for anyone interested in open-source software for data visualization. With over 700 software packages — summarized and tagged by data type, programming language, and other keywords — dataviz.cafe is designed to help people find free visualization tools for a wide variety of use-cases.
In this Q&A on Explainable AI, Andrea Brennen speaks with In-Q-Tel’s Peter Bronez about descriptive vs. prescriptive models, “white box” vs. “black box” explanation techniques, and why some models are easier to explain than others.
Interspeech 2019, held in Graz Austria, saw experts from around the world gathering to discuss some of the most recent advances in technologies at the crossroads of speech and language. At Lab41 we were excited to co-host, together with SRI International, one of 10 special sessions and challenges, the VOiCES from a distance challenge.
Cyphercat, a research project out of IQT Labs, helps determine if training data is safe. Cyphercat measures the privacy risks that arise from sharing access to models trained on private data and enables safe and informed model sharing.
IQT Labs hosted our first “Join the Conversation” event on explainable AI in Washington DC on September 18. I kicked off the event with a talk summarizing 10 things I’ve learned about explainable AI. This post is based on that talk.
We need to design data products — artifacts and interfaces — that make data more accessible to less technical audiences. Good design gives us products that are accessible, informative and useful; even better design gives us experiences that are intuitive, compelling, and a pleasure to use.
We’re closing in on the final stretch for the SpaceNet 5 Challenge that aims to extract road networks and route travel times directly from satellite imagery. Yet there’s still plenty of time to get involved, as our previous blog showed reasonable road mask predictions after only 10 hours of training.
