ParlAI google
We introduce ParlAI (pronounced ‘par-lay’), an open-source software platform for dialog research implemented in Python, available at http://parl.ai. Its goal is to provide a unified framework for training and testing of dialog models, including multitask training, and integration of Amazon Mechanical Turk for data collection, human evaluation, and online/reinforcement learning. Over 20 tasks are supported in the first release, including popular datasets such as SQuAD, bAbI tasks, MCTest, WikiQA, QACNN, QADailyMail, CBT, bAbI Dialog, Ubuntu, OpenSubtitles and VQA. Included are examples of training neural models with PyTorch and Lua Torch, including both batch and hogwild training of memory networks and attentive LSTMs. …

C Numerical Library (CNL) google
The IMSL C Numerical Library provides advanced mathematical and statistical functionality for programmers to embed in their existing or new applications. Written in standard C, the IMSL C Library can be embedded into any C or C++ application as well as any existing application that can reference a C library. …

Non-local Neural Network google
Both convolutional and recurrent operations are building blocks that process one local neighborhood at a time. In this paper, we present non-local operations as a generic family of building blocks for capturing long-range dependencies. Inspired by the classical non-local means method in computer vision, our non-local operation computes the response at a position as a weighted sum of the features at all positions. This building block can be plugged into many computer vision architectures. On the task of video classification, even without any bells and whistles, our non-local models can compete or outperform current competition winners on both Kinetics and Charades datasets. In static image recognition, our non-local models improve object detection/segmentation and pose estimation on the COCO suite of tasks. Code will be made available. …
