This Review gives an overview of intersting stuff I stumbled over which are related to machine learning.
Human-strenght and Super-human strength programs
Super-human strength programs are programs, which surpass even the best human (on the long run) in a specified task. Human-strength programs behave similar to an (untrained) human.
Although those are not new, seeing them as a list (source) was new to me. However, except for the games and lip reading, I doubt that we are there yet. Interesting, non the less:
- Lip reading: 2016, Lip Reading Sentences in the Wild (YouTube)
- Geolocation by photos, PlaNet - Photo Geolocation with Convolutional Neural Networks
- Speech transcription: 2016, Achieving Human Parity in Conversational Speech Recognition
- Translation: 2016, Zero-Shot Translation with Google’s Multilingual Neural Machine Translation System
- Driving: 2016, Waymo

Trump QA idea
I was just watching this clip and wodered how well a question answering system would work which is trained on Trump speaches. Very often, when reporters / journalists / moderators ask Trump a question, he answers with "I am the [most / best / least] [positive / negative statement]. [Inconsistent answer follows]". The answers themself would almost certainly be hilarous. Second, one could make an experiment and ask people if Trump actually answered a question like this.
