Sensors and AI: the dream team

Sensors and AI: the dream team
You don’t have to attach sensors to everything. With machine learning, a new suite of only nine different sensors can recognise dozens of various phenomena. Ubiquitous sensors seem almost synonymous with the Internet of Things (IoT), but some Carnegie Mellon University researchers say ubiquitous sensing - with a single, general purpose sensor for each room - may be better.

Facebook shuts down robots after they create their own language

Facebook shuts down robots after they create their own language
Recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg dismissed Elon Musk’s AI doomsday warnings as ‘irresponsible’. However, he might have to change his mind after what just happened at Facebook HQ. Facebook was forced to shut down two artificial intelligence robots after it appeared they were speaking to each other in a strange language only they understood. Researchers noticed that the robots – nicknamed Bob and Alice - had started to make up their own code words.

Emotions, take the wheel!

Emotions, take the wheel!
Supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, Renesas Electronics Europe, has announced that it has developed a development kit for its R-Car that takes advantage of 'emotion engine', an artificial sensibility and intelligence technology pioneered by cocoro SB, a SoftBank Group company. The new development kit enables cars with the sensibility to read the driver's emotions and optimally respond to the driver’s needs based on their emotional state.

AI suggests recipes based on food photos

AI suggests recipes based on food photos
There are few things social media users love more than flooding their feeds with photos of food. Yet we seldom use these images for much more than a quick scroll on our cellphones. Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) believe that analysing photos like these could help us learn recipes and better understand people's eating habits.

New AI-powered software accelerates pattern search

New AI-powered software accelerates pattern search
BrainChip Holdings, or also known as ‘BrainChip’ or ‘The Company’, a developer of software and hardware accelerated solutions for advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, has announced the release of its new software product, BrainChip Studio. This new software has been produced as a result of over ten years development and BrainChip Studio uses an artificial intelligence technology called a spiking neural network, a type of neuromorphic computing that simulates the functionality of the human visual tract.

Is AI a fundamental threat to human civilisation?

Is AI a fundamental threat to human civilisation?
According to Tesla and Space X chief executive Elon Musk, artificial intelligence is the “biggest risk we face as a civilisation” and needs to be proactively regulated before it’s too late. Speaking at a meeting of US governors, Musk said: “Normally the way regulations are set up is when a bunch of bad things happen, there’s a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry. It takes forever. That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation.”

When will machines exceed human performance?

When will machines exceed human performance?
The Future of Humanity Institute recently published the results of its survey of over 350 industry and academic Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts from around the globe in an effort to answer this question. They also tackled a more vexing one: When will machines exceed human performance for all tasks? According to those experts we have decades. Guest blogger Mychal McCabe explains.

Voulez-vous coucher avec un robot, ce soir ?

Voulez-vous coucher avec un robot, ce soir ?
Could robots one day be used to keep the elderly ‘company’ in care homes, or alleviate some of the struggles facing those in long term relationships? According to a report released today by the Foundation for Responsible Robotics (FRR), this could be the case in the next five to ten years. The consultation report, Our Sexual Future With Robots, presented an objective summary of the issues and various opinions about what could be our most intimate association with robots in the foreseeable future.
