V-JEPA, AI Reasoning from a Non-Generative Architecture with Mido Assran - #677

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Mar 25 2024 • 47 mins

Today we’re joined by Mido Assran, a research scientist at Meta’s Fundamental AI Research (FAIR). In this conversation, we discuss V-JEPA, a new model being billed as “the next step in Yann LeCun's vision” for true artificial reasoning. V-JEPA, the video version of Meta’s Joint Embedding Predictive Architecture, aims to bridge the gap between human and machine intelligence by training models to learn abstract concepts in a more efficient predictive manner than generative models. V-JEPA uses a novel self-supervised training approach that allows it to learn from unlabeled video data without being distracted by pixel-level detail. Mido walks us through the process of developing the architecture and explains why it has the potential to revolutionize AI. The complete show notes for this episode can be found at twimlai.com/go/677.
