New Neural Network Could Solve Big AI Challenges

neural_networks

Deep learning is such a powerful tool precisely because neural nets form the technology’s core machinery. If we’re only talking about a traditional neural network then it is made up of many stacked layers of  (technically speaking) simple computational nodes. The job of these computational nodes is to work with each other and find any …

Light Will Power Next-Generation AI Algorithms

ai_light_speed

Researchers and engineers have tried optical chips in the past as well. However, with the rise of artificial intelligence techniques such as deep learning, now they may have an opportunity to actually succeed in places where all others before have failed. The seaport district in Boston has a very special laboratory nearby. It is small …

AI May Build Red Redemption 2 Open World on the Fly.

ai_chips

The process of creating detailed and lifelike digital worlds usually requires a lot of patience, creativity, and skill. However, now, thanks to AI, people can simply all of that work to artificial intelligence algorithms. Developing and creating any worth-a-look virtual environment which actually looks realistic enough takes a lot of skill and a lot of …

Things a Robot Scientist Will Do to Transform Our World

robot_scientists

The very first robot that anyone in any country built was in Japan in 1929. And the person who built it named it Gakutensoku. In English that meant, ‘learning from the laws of nature.’ Makoto Nishimura, a biologist by profession, was its creator. Later, he would profoundly say of hits then latest mechanical progeny that …

Congress People Should Contact Harvard to Understand AI

US_congress_ai

Harvard wants to organize a tech boot camp. Why? In order to teach United States policymakers and politicians about the risks and the potential of artificial intelligence. The whole of America saw how inept and poorly informed Mark Zuckerberg’s questioners were when they made the CEO of Facebook testify in front of the United States …

No more fake pictures with new DeepFake-busting apps

deepfake_ai_apps

DeepFake-busting applications now have the ability to spot as little as one pixel out of an entire photo to see if the photo is fake or not. Two startups have now begun to use computer algorithms to track if and when a given image was edited. And it can do that from the moment the …

AI code of ethics: Why establishing it will be hard.

ai_ethics

The first problem with establishing a code of ethics (let alone code of ethics in the field of artificial intelligence) is that ethics are too subjective. And it could become very problematic to use such subjective concepts to guide the proper use of technologies such as artificial intelligence. This is what a few legal scholars …

An AI will meet you at your next doctor’s appointment

health_ai_apps

There is a new wave coming. It consists of nothing but chatbots. Chatbots that will replace physicians. And will provide all the frontline medical advice. However, the question on everybody’s mind remains the same: Will they provide as good a facility as the real thing? Sometimes (a lot of times for others) the stomach really …

AI Farms Will Soon Start to Produce Food Without Humans

robot_arms

It seems like robot forms are not the future anymore. They may take over further responsibilities of humans. A new robot from now has machines that are tending row of healthy-giving leafy greens all under the watchful eye of a software that they are calling The Brain. There are so many robotics companies around the …
