> Microsoft Research Unveils Three Efforts to Advance Deep Generative Models by Jesus Rodriguez | April 27

Microsoft Research efforts with Optimus, FQ-GAN and Prevalent present new ideas that can be incorporated into the new generation of DGM models. Microsoft Research open sourced the code related to this efforts together with the research papers.

> Applying Machine Learning to…..Yeast? on Google AI Blog | April 29

In collaboration with Calico Life Sciences, Google AI presents “Learning causal networks using inducible transcription factors and transcriptome-wide time series”, published in Molecular Systems Biology. Based on exhaustive experiments, they built a genome-wide model for the regulation of gene expression in S. cerevisiae and verified some of the results experimentally, enabling future investigations into less well understood biological systems. The Induction Dynamics gene Expression Atlas is available from Calico in a format easy to manipulate in python, with open-sourced code to do this on the Google Research GitHub. The data is hosted in a standard format at the Gene Expression Omnibus.

> How Machine Learning Can Help with Customer Retention by Euge Inzaugarat | April 30

In the article, the author writes about building a churn model to understand why customers are leaving.

> How A.I. may help solve science’s ‘reproducibility’ crisis by Jonathan Vanian on Fortune | May 4
