Monster Machine Cracks The Game Of Go

Illustration: Google DeepMind/Nature A computer program has defeated a master of the ancient Chinese game of Go, achieving one of the loftiest of the Grand Challenges of AI at least a decade earlier than anyone had thought possible. The programmers, at Google’s Deep Mind laboratory, in London, .write in today’s issue of .Nature that their […]

Brain waves may be spread by weak electrical field

The research team says the electrical fields could be behind the spread of sleep and theta waves, along with epileptic seizure waves (Credit:Shutterstock) Mechanism tied to waves associated with epilepsy Researchers at Case Western Reserve University may have found a new way information is communicated throughout the brain. Their discovery could lead to identifying possible […]

Memory capacity of brain is 10 times more than previously thought

Data from the Salk Institute shows brain’s memory capacity is in the petabyte range, as much as entire Web LA JOLLA—Salk researchers and collaborators have achieved critical insight into the size of neural connections, putting the memory capacity of the brain far higher than common estimates. The new work also answers a longstanding question as […]

Bridging the Bio-Electronic Divide

New effort aims for fully implantable devices able to connect with up to one million neurons A new DARPA program aims to develop an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world. The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical […]

Microsoft Neural Net Shows Deep Learning can get Way Deeper

PAUL TAYLOR/GETTY IMAGES COMPUTER VISION IS now a part of everyday life. Facebook recognizes faces in the photos you post to the popular social network. The Google Photos app can find images buried in your collection, identifying everything from dogs to birthday parties to gravestones. Twitter can pinpoint pornographic images without help from human curators. […]

NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2. NVIDIA Accelerates Race to Autonomous Driving at CES 2016

NVIDIA today shifted its autonomous-driving leadership into high gear. At a press event kicking off CES 2016, we unveiled artificial-intelligence technology that will let cars sense the world around them and pilot a safe route forward. Dressed in his trademark black leather jacket, speaking to a crowd of some 400 automakers, media and analysts, NVIDIA […]

Robots are learning from YouTube tutorials

Do it yourself, robot. (Reuters/Kim Kyung-Hoon) For better or worse, we’ve taught robots to mimic human behavior in countless ways. They can perform tasks as rudimentary as picking up objects, or as creative as dreaming their own dreams. They can identify bullying, and even play jazz. Now, we’ve taught robots the most human task of […]

Scientists have discovered brain networks linked to intelligence for the first time

Ralwel/ And we may even be able to manipulate them. For the first time ever, scientists have identified clusters of genes in the brain that are believed to be linked to human intelligence. The two clusters, called M1 and M3, are networks each consisting of hundreds of individual genes, and are thought to influence our […]

Scientists have built a functional ‘hybrid’ logic gate for use in quantum computers

As conventional computers draw ever closer to their theoretical limit, the race is on to build a machine that can truly harness the unprecedented processing power of quantum computing. And now two research teams have […]

Forward to the Future: Visions of 2045

DARPA asked the world and our own researchers what technologies they expect to see 30 years from now—and received insightful, sometimes funny predictions Today—October 21, 2015—is famous in popular culture as the date 30 years in the future when Marty McFly and Doc Brown arrive in their time-traveling DeLorean in the movie “Back to the […]

Computer Learns to Write Its ABCs

Photo-illustration: Danqing Wang A new computer model can now mimic the human ability to learn new concepts from a single example instead of the hundreds or thousands of examples it takes other machine learning techniques, researchers say. The new model learned how to write invented symbols from the animated show Futurama as well as dozens […]

Elon Musk And Sam Altman Launch OpenAI, A Nonprofit That Will Use AI To ‘Benefit Humanity’

. Led by an all-star team of Silicon Valley’s best and brightest, OpenAI already has $1 billion in funding. . Silicon Valley is in the midst of an .artificial intelligence war, as giants like Facebook and Google attempt to outdo each other by deploying machine learning and AI to automate services. But a brand-new organization […]
