It made its presence felt in a variety of industries in 2017.
Recent achievements in deep learning over the past year (and a bit longer). We’ll tell you about the most significant developments that can affect our future.
Memory is a precious resource, so humans have evolved to remember important skills and forget irrelevant ones. Now machines are being designed to do the same.
Recent methods in artificial intelligence enable AI software to produce rich and creative digital artifacts such as text and images painted from scratch. One technique used in creating these artifacts are generative adversarial networks (GANs). Today at NIPS 2017, researchers from Microsoft Research and ETH Zurich present their work on making GAN models more robust …
A mysterious protein that binds to RNA has been found to play an important role in the formation of memories in rats.
An upgraded version of the game-playing AI teaches itself every trick in the Go book, using a new form of machine learning.
NYU’s Yann LeCun and Gary Marcus debated whether the future of AI learning is more about nature or nurture
In our new paper, in Nature Neuroscience, we apply a neuroscience lens to a longstanding mathematical theory from machine learning to provide new insights into the nature of learning and memory. Specifically, we propose that the area of the brain known as the hippocampus offers a unique solution to this problem by compactly summarising future events using what we call a “predictive map.”
A new idea is helping to explain the puzzling success of todayâs artificial-intelligence algorithms â and might also explain how human brains learn.
As neural nets push into science, researchers probe back
If machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence, then deep learning could be called a subfield of machine learning.
Kindred AI is teaching robots new tasks using human virtual-reality “pilots.” The ultimate goal is to create a new kind of artificial intelligence.
One of the biggest confusions about “Artificial Intelligence” is that it is a very vague term. That’s because Artificial Intelligence or AI is a term that was coined way back in 1955 with extreme…
The technique that helped a computer master the game of Go is about to be tested in real vehicles as a way to cope with complex driving situations.
Algorithms usually need thousands of examples to learn something. Researchers at Google DeepMind found a way around that.
Insilico Medicine launched aging.AI, a system allowing users to guess their age and gender by entering the results of their blood test.
He found some surprising answers.
Research from MIT shows that habit formation in primates is driven by neurons that weigh the cost of a habit, as well as the reward. The research provides insights into neuropsychiatric disorders that involve problems with repetitive behavior, such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Tourette syndrome, and autism spectrum disorder.
Hannah Fraser, a native Australian, is taking up the call to help change the negative perception given to sharks. Literally risked it all, Fraser dived to the bottom of the ocean to dance with a group of Tiger sharks.
