Long short term memory and the future of Artificial Intelligence

From medical treatment to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence is changing our world as machines start to learn on their own through trial and error. We will soon have small computers, each with more processing power than all human brains combined, that will transform our everyday lives, says AI expert Jürgen Schmidhuber. Who is Jürgen Schmidhuber? Since age 15 or so, the main goal of professor Jürgen Schmidhuber has been to

A.I. Apocalypse: More Myth Than Reality

Steven Pinker believes there’s some interesting gender psychology at play when it comes to the robopocalypse. Could artificial intelligence become evil or are alpha male scientists just projecting? I think that the arguments that once we have super intelligent computers and robots they will inevitably want to take over and do away with us comes from Prometheus and Pandora myths. It’s based on confusing the idea of high intelligence with

New AI Can Predict When Two People Will Kiss

MIT researchers made a set of computer systems watch over 600 hours of shows such as “The Office,” “Desperate Housewives”, and “Big Bang Theory,” training the systems to recognise when two characters would kiss, hug, high-five, or shake hands. So far the algorithm has been accurate 43% of the time, whereas humans gave correct predictions 71% of the time. Sometimes a lean is just a lean, and sometimes a lean

Worrying about the Robo-Pocalypse Is a First-World Problem

Bill Nye laughs in the face of the robo-pocalypse (a great disaster : a sudden and very bad event that causes much fear, loss, or destruction). Or more accurately, he laughs at those who worry that AI might run amok. If we build robots that want to kill us, he says, we can just unplug them. “So when it comes to artificial intelligence it is fabulous science fiction premise to

Artificial Intelligence & Personhood

We will learn about artificial intelligence, including Weak AI and Strong AI, and the various ways thinkers have tried to define Strong AI. We will also consider the Turing Test and John Searle’s response to the Turing Test, the Chinese Room. Hank explores artificial intelligence, including weak AI and strong AI, and the various ways that thinkers have tried to define strong AI including the Turing Test, and John Searle’s

Apple acquires artificial intelligence startup Turi

Apple is upping the ante on artificial intelligence (AI). The smartphone giant has reportedly acquired AI startup Turi for $200 million. According to a report in GeetWire, “The acquisition reflects a larger push by Apple into artificial intelligence and machine learning. It also promises to further increase the Cupertino, California-based company’s presence in the Seattle region, where Apple has been building an engineering outpost for the past two years.” In

Creepy-but-Fascinating Artificial Intelligence Robot

It’s name is Alter, and it’s powered with a neural system that mimics that of humans. The erratic movements and eerie facial expressions it’s making in the video it’s making of its own volition. This is Alter, an artificial intelligence robot that does not require any human control. It has a neural network that detects its surroundings, noise, temperature and humidity. This network is controlled by a central pattern generator

Ford Invests in Artificial Intelligence for Self-Driving Cars

A California start-up has developed mapping software to identify elements in the car’s field of view. A California start-up working on artificial intelligence-powered mapping software for self-driving cars today received $6.6 million from a group of investors that includes the Ford Motor Company. Like other automakers, Ford is testing its autonomous car technology in Michigan and on public roads in California, where its engineers are evaluating the sensors that detect
