IBM Watson: The inside story of how the Jeopardy-winning supercomputer was born, and wh... - 0 views

  •  
    A nice read.
    IBM Watson wowed the tech industry with a 2011 win against two of television show Jeopardy greatest champions.
    Using something that seemed like a sort of tree search for me IBM DeepQA algorithm managed to ingest sparse data (clues), process it getting one answer, understand what that answer means and come up with the question that leads to that answer.
    Now, IBM tells us that the same system can tackle medical diagnosis and financial risk problems.

    since double posted, maybe double interesting and we should have a closer look? anybody?

AI and The Future Of Civilization - 1 views

  •  
    What makes us different is the particulars of our history, which gives us our notions of purpose and goals. That's a long way of saying when we have the box on the desk that thinks as well as any brain does, the thing it doesn't have, intrinsically, is the goals and purposes that we have. Those are defined by our particulars-our particular biology, our particular psychology, our particular cultural history.

    The thing we have to think about as we think about the future of these things is the goals. That's what humans contribute, that's what our civilization contributes-execution of those goals; that's what we can increasingly automate.

    "Here we report the development of the computer algorithm Melvin which is able to find new experimental implementations for the creation and manipulation of complex quantum states." Published in Physical Review Letters. Researchers target future use more artificial intelligence algorithms, such as reinforcement learning techniques.

TED 2016: $5m AI X Prize announced at conference - BBC News - 2 views

  •  
    Get cracking, ACT AI team ;)

    A new X prize designed to advance artificial intelligence has been announced at the TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference. The X Prize was set up to push the boundaries of technology to solve issues such as climate change. The winner, which will be announced at TED in 2020, will win $5m (£3.4m).

New theory allows drones to see distances with one eye - 2 views

  •  
    Inspired by the work that was done at the ACT, I continued working on optical flow landing at TU Delft. Today Bio & Bio published my article on a new theory that allows drones to see distances with a single camera. It shows that drones approaching an object with an insect-inspired vision strategy become unstable at a specific distance from the object. Turning this weakness into a strength, drones can actually use the timely detection of that instability to estimate distance. The new theory will enable further miniaturization of autonomous drones and provides a new hypothesis on flying insect behavior.

Computer model matches humans at predicting how objects move - 0 views

  •  
    We humans take for granted our remarkable ability to predict things that happen around us. Here, a deep learning model trained from real-world videos and a 3D graphics engine was able to infer physical properties of objects against humans.

The First Person to Hack the iPhone Built a Self-Driving Car. In His Garage - 4 views

  •  
    Read this this morning in the train, what a story! Awesome guy, I wish him all the luck kicking against the established companies... Seems he has a bet with Elon Musk to outperform the current autonomous driving algoritms using his AI techniques. He is actually driving a lot with his car via Uber, to gain material to train his NN on :)

Big Hero 6's Programmable Nanobots Are on the Horizon - 2 views

    This collaborating swarm of drones acts as 3D pixels (voxels) to create giant, flying interactive displays.
  •  
    I have never understood the flying part of these things. Isn't it really impracticle to have all those tiny quadrocopters zooming around. My money is on holography or still a google glass type of device, if only considering the energy requirements for doing anything kinetically.

Computers Learn How to Paint Whatever You Tell Them To - 3 views

  •  
    Most self-respecting artists wouldn't agree to paint a portrait of a toilet in the middle of a field. Fortunately, advancements in artificial intelligence have given computers the ability to imagine just about any scenario, no matter how bizarre, and illustrate it. Take a look at this image.
  •  
    Those are some creepy faces among them.. This is also just completely random isn't it?
  •  
    Well, biased to the data it was trained on. Computing a net is pretty deterministic.
    But not everything is perfectly correlated yet.
    Still nice progress.

Roboticists learn to teach robots from babies - 2 views

  •  
    Babies learn about the world by exploring how their bodies move in space, grabbing toys, pushing things off tables and by watching and imitating what adults are doing. But when roboticists want to teach a robot how to do a task, they typically either write code or physically move a robot's arm or body to show it how to perform an action.

Google Just Open Sourced the Artificial Intelligence Engine at the Heart of Its Online ... - 2 views

  •  
    TensorFlow is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API. TensorFlow was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google's Machine Intelligence research organization for the purposes of conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research, but the system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains as well.

Neuronal Networks: Computers paint like van Gogh - 1 views

  •  
    A neuronal network trained to paint the scene of a given photograph in the style of Kandinsky, van Gogh, or Munch. Their results look quite impressive. Unfortunately the article is in German, but the English paper (with plenty of pictures) is here: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1508.06576v2.pdf

    Malen wie Kandinsky, wie van Gogh, wie Munch nur auf Basis einer Fotovorlage? Natürlich gibt es begabte Kunstfälscher, die das können. Jetzt aber gelingt es auch Computern, und zwar auf höchst eindrucksvolle Weise. Drei Forscher von der Universität Tübingen haben es geschafft, einem sogenannten künstlichen neuronalen Netzwerk das Malen beizubringen.

    Impressive stuff indeed. Paper came out one week ago. Multiple independent implementations have popped out since then:

Introducing A Brain-inspired Computer [IBM TrueNorth] - 0 views

  •  
    Built in Silicon technology (Samsung's 28 nm process), its power is measured as one million neurons and 256 million synapses. It contains 5.4 million transistor being the largest IBM chip in these terms. All this said, it consumes less than 100 mW!!

    "These systems can efficiently process high-dimensional, noisy sensory data in real time, while consuming orders of magnitude less power than conventional computer architectures." IBM is working with initLabs to integrate the DVS retinal camera with these chips = real time image neuro-like image processing.

    In what seems to be a very successful project hugely funded by DARPA, "Our sights are now set high on the ambitious goal of integrating 4,096 chips in a single rack with 4 billion neurons and 1 trillion synapses while consuming ~4kW of power."

Robots collaborate to deliver meds, supplies, and even drinks - 2 views

  •  
    At the recent Robotics Science and Systems (RSS) conference, a CSAIL team presented a new system of three robots that can work together to deliver items quickly, accurately and, perhaps most importantly, in unpredictable environments. The team says its models could extend to a variety of other applications, including hospitals, disaster situations, and even restaurants and bars.
