DeepMind’s latest AI transfers its learning to new tasks By using insights from one job to help it do another, a successful new artificial intelligence hints at a more versatile future for machine learning. Backstory: Most algorithms can be trained in only one domain, and can’t use what’s been learned for one task to perform another, new one. A big hope […]

A new system for creating code that manipulates tensors yields programs that are 100 times as efficient as those produced by existing software packages, with ramifications for big-data analysis and machine learning.
NYU’s Yann LeCun and Gary Marcus debated whether the future of AI learning is more about nature or nurture
A new idea is helping to explain the puzzling success of todayâs artificial-intelligence algorithms â and might also explain how human brains learn.
The Go-playing program teaches itself to replicate something very much like human intuition, an advance that promises far-reaching consequences.
Pharmaceutical companies hope computers can help them find new medications that are faster, cheaper-and more likely to be effective.
Google’s AutoML makes it easier to design better AI.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said his latest company Neuralink is working to link the human brain with a machine by creating micron-sized devices.
British cybersecurity firm Darktrace explained to CNBC why companies should invest in artificial intelligence to secure their networks.
To create more immersive worlds, VR makers are turning to the same kinds of chips powering the artificial intelligence explosion.
Modern artificial intelligence is built to mimic nature-the field’s main pursuit is replicating in a computer the same decision-making prowess that humankind creates biologically. For the better part of three decades, most of AI’s brain-inspired development has surrounded “neural networks,” a term borrowed from neurobiology that describes machine thought as the movement of data through…
