China: from the Great Wall to the Great Firewall. The complexity of a nation on the edge between economic boom, hi-tech revolution, political censorship and social conflicts.
Neuromorphic Computers: Being inspired by biology can help overcome the limitations of modern computer architectures. We had already mentioned neuromorphic computers in the article about specialized hardware for AI. The concept of neuromorphic computers is not exactly new: in fact, it was coined in the ’80s by C. Mead, then “made official” in an article that later … Neuromorphic Computers and Spiking Neural Networks: the new generation of machine learning?Read More »
Curiosity-driven AI: algorithms powered with intrinsic motivation. What does Curiosity-driven AI mean? Research and innovation in AI made us accustomed with novelty and breakthroughs practically coming out on a daily basis. Now we are almost used to algorithms that can recognize scenes and environments in real-time and move accordingly, who can understand natural language (NLP), learn manual work directly from the … Curiosity driven AI – curiosity kills the cat, but not the machineRead More »
Google Duplex, one giant leap for AI … or another step towards the ultimate deep fake? At the beginning of May, in Google I/O 2018 Keynotes Sundai Pichard presented Google Duplex. That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind. Neil Amrstrong, 20/7/1969 As you can see from the video below, Duplex is not only able … Google Duplex – “human” warmth and realism in automatic conversationRead More »
The fourth industrial revolution or Industry 4.0 is at our doorsteps, and it will likely be the last one. We are about to enter a future where no job is "safe" from automation: heralded apocalypse or the beginning of a new age? Let's have a look at the possible solutions.
YOLO and the family of the Single-Shot Decoders contributed for a quantum leap in Computer Vision.
India: from unification and slavery under the British East India Company to the push for becoming a leading role in the technological rodeo of Artificial Intelligence.
Most of the tourists come to New Zealand for the stunning landscapes, but other than that, there is a country that is at the top of the list for ease of doing business, and that has been able to transform its ability to improvise in the ability to innovate.
Deep coding: let the machines do the coding. Are we just about leaving them the dirty work, or outsourcing our last link to the loop?
Two neural networks "fighting" each other in a zero-sum game. Generative adversarial neural networks are among the most interesting advances in Artificial Intelligence in the last 10 years.
