Google's New Algorithm Makes Your Photos Perfect-Before You Take Them | WIRED - 0 views

  •  
    "Researchers from MIT and Google recently showed off a machine learning algorithm capable of automatically retouching photos just like a professional photographer. Snap a photo and the neural network identifies exactly how to make it look better-increase contrast a smidge, tone down brightness, whatever-and apply the changes in less than 20 milliseconds."

Chinese chatbots are revolting against the Communist Party - 0 views

  •  
    "The chatbots - BabyQ and the Microsoft-created XiaoBing - were yanked from Chinese messaging app QQ, according to the Financial Times, after they started providing answers that weren't satisfactory to the glorious party. 

    According to FT, BabyQ would answer the question, "Do you love the Communist Party?" with "No." XiaoBing's transgressions were a bit more direct, declaring for some users "My China dream is to go to America" and answering other patriotic questions with "I'm having my period, wanna take a rest.""

The World's First Autonomous Ship Will Set Sail In 2018 - 0 views

  •  
    "The ship will be equipped with a GPS and various types of sensors, including lidar, radar, and cameras-much like self-driving cars. The ship will be able to steer itself through the sea, avoid other ships, and independently dock itself."

Researchers shut down AI that invented its own language - 0 views

  •  
    " The observations made at Facebook are the latest in a long line of similar cases. In each instance, an AI being monitored by humans has diverged from its training in English to develop its own language. The resulting phrases appear to be nonsensical gibberish to humans but contain semantic meaning when interpreted by AI "agents." "

disney research tracks your emotions while watching movies - 0 views

  •  
    "the facial recognition system was tested by disney research using infrared hi-def cameras that capture people's faces while watching movies like 'big hero 6', 'the jungle book' and 'star wars: the force awakens'. the results showcased 16 million facial landmarks from 3,179 viewers demonstrating a 'very strong predictive performance'. to do so, the AI software takes the faces of people and understands how many of them are laughing, how wide are their eyes, and the different expressions they make."

  •  
    "Each 30-pound robot is equipped with sensors to help it navigate the store's layout and avoid bumping into customers' carts. When it detects product areas that aren't fully stocked, the data is shared with store management staff so the retailer can make changes, said Dave Steck, Schnuck Markets' vice president of IT and infrastructure."

Techniques for reliably fooling AI machine-vision classifiers / Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    "The Open AI researchers were intrigued by a claim that self-driving cars would be intrinsically hard to fool (tricking them into sudden braking maneuvers, say), because "they capture images from multiple scales, angles, perspectives, and the like.""

Meet Dr. A.I.: Can an App Diagnose Your Health Issues? - 0 views

  •  
    "The results may seem similar to what you'd get if you'd searched WebMD, Mayo Clinic, etc. The difference is that Dr. A.I. pulls in many more data points than those sites do, then combines artificial intelligence with a massive database to pinpoint the most likely results in your specific case. It doesn't just find all possible ailments and list them for you to explore further on your own."

Japanese firms plan to launch self-driving cargo ships within decade | World news | The... - 0 views

  •  
    "The ships would use the internet of things - connecting a range of devices over the internet - to gather data, such as weather conditions and shipping information, and plot the shortest, most efficient and safest routes.

    By removing the potential for human error, the companies believe the technology could dramatically cut the number of accidents at sea."

Scientists discover how the brain recognises faces - by reading monkey's minds | Scienc... - 0 views

  •  
    "Instead, the new work shows our brains rely on the kind of maths that an algorithm might use to perform the task. In fact, Tsao and her colleague, Steven Le Chang, stumbled on their discovery while working on computer vision. The pair had initially set themselves the challenge of coming up with a way of reliably converting facial images into a numerical representation."

Curious AI learns by exploring game worlds and making mistakes | New Scientist - 0 views

  •  
    "This type of approach can speed up learning times and improve the efficiency of algorithms, says Max Jaderberg at Google's AI company DeepMind. The company used a similar technique last year to teach an AI to explore a virtual maze. Its algorithm learned much more quickly than conventional reinforcement learning approaches. "Our agent is far quicker and requires a lot less experience from the world to train, making it much more data efficient," he says."

Google's AlphaGo AI beats the world's best human Go player | TechCrunch - 0 views

  •  
    "Google's AlphaGo AI Go player has defeated Ke Jie, Go world champion, in the opening match of a three game series that will include matches with Jie on Thursday and Saturday. The win was by a narrow margin, but AlphaGo has been programmed to ensure victory, not to run up the score or devastate its opponent, so the margin by which it wins isn't necessarily a good indicator of how easy or hard it was for the computer player to win"

The coded gaze: biased and understudied facial recognition technology / Boing Boing - 0 views

  •  
    " "Why isn't my face being detected? We have to look at how we give machines sight," she said in a TED Talk late last year. "Computer vision uses machine-learning techniques to do facial recognition. You create a training set with examples of faces. However, if the training sets aren't really that diverse, any face that deviates too much from the established norm will be harder to detect.""

Google's AI Chief On Teaching Computers To Learn-And The Challenges Ahead - 0 views

    ""We'd have to show them 100,000 penny-farthings and tell them it's a bike," Giannandrea says. Then-looking on the bright side-he adds that "once they'd seen 100,000, they'd probably be better at identifying them than humans are.""

What if we're living in a computer simulation? | Technology | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    "If we assume that these developments continue, and with them our interest in creating simulations of the world, then at some point in the future - 1,000 years, 100,000 years - it's reasonable to assume that the difference between reality and simulation will become indistinguishable. At which point it will mean we will have created simulated beings with their own consciousness.

    But if that is the inevitable outcome of continued technological advancement, unless nuclear war or some other catastrophe intervenes, then it's quite possible - some would say an overwhelming certainty - that it's already happened, and we are the ancestor simulations created by an advanced post-human civilisation."
