(Anil Ananthaswamy's article in Quanta Magazine discusses kernel methods and their relevance, including some of Misha Belkin's recent work.)

In the machine learning world, the sizes of artificial neural networks and their outsize successes are creating conceptual conundrums. When a network named Alexnet won an annual image recognition competition in 2021, it had about 60 million parameters.  These parameters, fine-tuned during training, allowed AlexNet to recognize images that it had never seen before. Two years later, a network named VGG wowed the competition with more than 130 million such parameters. Some artificial neural networks or ANNs, now have billions of parameters.

The National Science Foundation just announced 11 new artificial intelligence institutes across the nation, and researchers from the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin will play prominent roles in two of them.

The investment from NSF, $220 million in total, underscores the importance of AI in research today. The goals of these institutes include helping older adults lead more independent lives and improving the quality of their care; transforming AI into a more accessible “plug-and-play” technology; creating solutions to improve agriculture and food supply chains; enhancing adult online learning by introducing AI as a foundational element; and supporting underrepresented students in elementary to postdoctoral STEM education to improve equity and representation in AI research.
