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 …

Balloons for surveillance? Yes please, says the US military

surveillance_balloons_wind

The United States military is trying to outmatch other armies around the world by making use of stratospheric balloons which would ride out the winds in order to never have the requirement of coming down. Apparently, the engineering team on the balloon has installed a sensor on the balloon which has the ability to spot …

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 …

At AI’s Heart Lies A Dark Secret That Everyone Needs to Know About

ai_secrets

Machine learning technologies are great. They are great for researchers, for doctors, and for businessmen. However, inherently, the actual workings of any given machine-learning technology are more or less opaque when compared to a system that is hand-coded. And they aren’t opaque just to normal readers on the internet. Even computer scientists who work in …

Everyone Needs To Know This Dark AI Secret

ai_dark_secrets

At the very core of artificial intelligence, there is a dark secret. And that secret is that no one actually knows, in the truest sense of the word, how the majority of advanced algorithms go about doing their work. And that can cause a lot of problems.   About a year ago, a weird self-driving …

Teaching Computers How to Smell: A Unique AI Strategy

ai_olfactory_systems

For the first part of this post click here. The professor of informatics working at the University of Sussex, Thomas Nowotny, has recently managed to uncover parallels between a class of models and the olfactory system that the community calls the support vector machines. However, Thomas Nowotny has not stopped since then and has actually …

An AI Strategy That Can Mimic How The Brain Learns to Smell

ai_olfactory

Researchers in the field of artificial intelligence commonly base their new machine learning techniques on how the actual visual system manages to process information. In order to beat the limitations of machine learning techniques, researchers are now starting to draw inspiration from the human brain’s ability to sense smell. The modern world can thank artificial …

AI Security: Robots Are Coming To Make Friends With Soldiers

ai_security

Researchers working at the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University and the United States Army Research Laboratory have managed to develop a brand new technique using which they can quick teach robots completely new traversal behaviors. Moreover, using these techniques, these robots require minimal human oversight. Researchers can now (using the new techniques) enable various …
