Brain on a chip

by Christopher Bishop on March 2, 2018 in Curated

 

As the ai guys, we try to stay on top of the latest advances in AI and Machine Learning for you.  This article shows that there is now a new development: neuromorphic computing.  The idea is simple: fabricate a chip that mimics a human brain at the hardware level.  This new development could very well both change and accelerate the effort to replicate how the human brain works.

Poker

by David Houle on May 1, 2017 in Curated

 

In January of 2017, Libratus, an artificial intelligence developed by Carnegie Mellon University, made history by defeating four of the world’s best professional poker players in a marathon 20-day competition. The key take-away from this session was that the AI was able to defeat the humans using “imperfect information”, e.g. it did not know what cards the players had in their hands and whether or not they were bluffing. This has tremendous real world implications for business negotiation, military strategy and cybersecurity.

Go is an east Asian game that is famous for its deep complexity and whose possible moves are said to exceed the number of atoms in the universe. Worth noting though is the fact that Lee chalked up one match victory which shows that this AI system can make mistakes or be outwitted. In other words, there’s still room for further progress and development despite this incredible achievement.

Jeopardy

by David Houle on May 1, 2017 in Curated

 

In February of 2011, an IBM computer called Watson, named after the company’s iconic founder, beat the two reigning Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in a live televised event. This was a clear indication that intelligent machines can understand and respond to humans, and perhaps inevitably, replace some of them.

It was twenty years ago this month that the world’s perception of computers was changed forever. IBM’s supercomputer Deep Blue beat the reigning chess champion Garry Kasparov for the first time in his life. This event set the stage for the transformation that AI is taking place today.
