Vector-Quantized Image Modeling with Improved VQGAN

Posted by Jiahui Yu, Senior Research Scientist, and Jing Yu Koh, Research Software Engineer, Google Research In recent years, natural language processing models have dramatically improved their ability to learn general-purpose representations, which has resulted in significant performance gains for a wide range of natural language generation and natural...

Contextual Rephrasing in Google Assistant

Posted by Aurelien Boffy, Senior Staff Software Engineer, and Roberto Pieraccini, Engineering Director, Google Assistant When people converse with one another, context and references play a critical role in driving their conversation more efficiently. For instance, if one asks the question “Who wrote Romeo and Juliet?” and, after receiving an answer,...

Challenges in Multi-objective Optimization for Automatic Wireless Network Planning

Posted by Sara Ahmadian and Matthew Fahrbach, Research Scientists, Google Research, Large-Scale Optimization Team Economics, combinatorics, physics, and signal processing conspire to make it difficult to design, build, and operate high-quality, cost-effective wireless networks. The radio transceivers that communicate with our mobile phones, the equipment...

Language Models Perform Reasoning via Chain of Thought

Posted by Jason Wei and Denny Zhou, Research Scientists, Google Research, Brain team In recent years, scaling up the size of language models has been shown to be a reliable way to improve performance on a range of natural language processing (NLP) tasks. Today’s language models at the scale of 100B or more parameters achieve strong performance on tasks...

Unlocking Zero-Resource Machine Translation to Support New Languages in Google Translate

Posted by Isaac Caswell and Ankur Bapna, Research Scientists, Google Translate Machine translation (MT) technology has made significant advances in recent years, as deep learning has been integrated with natural language processing (NLP). Performance on research benchmarks like WMT have soared, and translation services have improved in quality and...

Learning Locomotion Skills Safely in the Real World

Posted by Jimmy (Tsung-Yen) Yang, Student Researcher, Robotics at Google The promise of deep reinforcement learning (RL) in solving complex, high-dimensional problems autonomously has attracted much interest in areas such as robotics, game playing, and self-driving cars. However, effectively training an RL policy requires exploring a large set of robot...

GraphWorld: Advances in Graph Benchmarking

John Palowitch and Anton Tsitsulin, Research Scientists, Google Research, Graph Mining team Graphs are very common representations of natural systems that have connected relational components, such as social networks, traffic infrastructure, molecules, and the internet. Graph neural networks (GNNs) are powerful machine learning (ML) models for graphs...

Alpa: Automated Model-Parallel Deep Learning

Posted by Zhuohan Li, Student Researcher, Google Research, and Yu Emma Wang, Senior Software Engineer, Google Core Update — 2022/05/06: This post has been updated to provide additional details about the collaboration with external research partners in the development of Alpa. Over the last several years, the rapidly growing size of deep learning...

Extracting Skill-Centric State Abstractions from Value Functions

Posted by Dhruv Shah, Intern, and Brian Ichter, Research Scientist, Robotics at Google Advances in reinforcement learning (RL) for robotics have enabled robotic agents to perform increasingly complex tasks in challenging environments. Recent results show that robots can learn to fold clothes, dexterously manipulate a rubik’s cube, sort objects by color,...

Google at ICLR 2022

Posted by Cat Armato and Callan Hajosy, Program Managers The 10th International Conference on Learning Representations (ICLR 2022) kicks off this week, bringing together researchers, entrepreneurs, engineers and students alike to discuss and explore the rapidly advancing field of deep learning. Entirely virtual this year, ICLR 2022 offers conference...
