The key insight of the "Generative Adversarial Networks," by Ian Goodfellow et al., is to learn a generative model's loss function at the same time as learning...Alexei A. Efros, Aaron Hertzmann From Communications of the ACM | November 2020
In this overview paper, we describe one particular approach to unsupervised learning via generative modeling called generative adversarial networks. We briefly...Ian Goodfellow, Jean Pouget-Abadie, Mehdi Mirza, Bing Xu, David Warde-Farley, Sherjil Ozair, Aaron Courville, Yoshua Bengio From Communications of the ACM | November 2020
Magellan's key insight is that a successful entity matching system must offer a versatile system building paradigm for entity matching that can be easily adapted...Wang-Chiew Tan From Communications of the ACM | August 2020
Entity matching can be viewed as a special class of data science problems and thus can benefit from system building ideas in data science.
