Deep learning algorithm diagnoses skin cancer as well as seasoned dermatologists

Deep learning algorithm diagnoses skin cancer as well as seasoned dermatologists During recent tests, the algorithm performed just as well as almost two dozen veteran dermatologists in deciding whether a lesion needed further medical attention.“We made a very powerful machine learning algorithm that learns from data,” said Andre Esteva, co-lead author of the paper and a graduate student at Stanford.

Humans fold as AI comes up aces in poker competition

Humans fold as AI comes up aces in poker competition Backed by 600 nodes from the Pittsburgh Super Computer Center Bridge’s computer, Libratus played 200 hundred hours of poker over 20 days against four poker pros: Dong Kim, Jimmy Chou, Daniel McAulay and Jason Les.7 million chips (no actually payouts were made during this competition; the four human players split a $200,000 purse).

Fight Social Anxiety With Wearable AI

Fight Social Anxiety With Wearable AI “Our work is a step in this direction, suggesting that we may not be that far away from a world where people can have an AI social coach right in their pocket.“It’s quite remarkable that a machine could approximate how we humans perceive these interactions, without significant input from us as researchers,” Al Hanai said.

Facebook's image recognition can now tell what you're wearing

Facebook's image recognition can now tell what you're wearing Director of Applied Machine Learning Joaquin Candela published a blog post today (accompanying his presentation at the Machine Learning @Scale event in New York City) to share updates about Facebook's AI-based image-recognition tool.But today's news shows general Facebook users have a lot to benefit from the feature as well.

Realdoll builds artificially intelligent sex robots with programmable personalities

Realdoll builds artificially intelligent sex robots with programmable personalities The new system is made up of several components, which will roll out over the course of this year and next.It will begin with the Harmony AI app, scheduled for release on April 15, followed by the company’s “first robotic head systems,” set to launch by the end of the year.

How a poker-playing AI could help prevent your next bout of the flu

How a poker-playing AI could help prevent your next bout of the flu You’d be forgiven for finding little exceptional about the latest defeat of an arsenal of poker champions by the computer algorithm Libratus in Pittsburgh last week.Peel back a layer though, and the most recent AI victory is as disturbing as it is compelling.

Top Minds Settle on Guiding Principles for AI Development

Top Minds Settle on Guiding Principles for AI Development As scientists, programmers and researchers assembled at the Asilomar conference last week, they worked together to come up with a list of 23 principles that they believe, should guide the development of artificial intelligence.Obviously guiding principles for Artificial Intelligence aren’t new.

What happens when robots have competing tasks? Google teaches cooperation to AI

What happens when robots have competing tasks? Google teaches cooperation to AI To that end, Google is using its DeepMind subsidiary to figure out how to have AIs play nicely together.The idea was to see how AIs interacted with one another when their tasks might interfere with that of another AI.

Ford to invest $1 billion in Argo AI to help bring autonomous driving to the masses

Ford to invest $1 billion in Argo AI to help bring autonomous driving to the masses On Friday, the company announced a $1 billion investment over the course of the next five years in artificial intelligence company Argo AI.The goal will be to “develop a new software platform for Ford’s fully autonomous vehicle coming in 2021” by combining the automaker’s expertise in cars and Argo’s experience in robotics.

GTA Online Players Have A New Conspiracy Theory That NPCs Are Out To Kill Them

GTA Online Players Have A New Conspiracy Theory That NPCs Are Out To Kill Them Recently, a paranoia has taken a hold of some GTA Online players, who are convinced that recent updates are forcing drivers to be more aggressive.Across the internet there are many threads where GTA Online players ask if anyone else has noticed the AI becoming more frustrating or dangerous.

Gamalon’s deep learning method improves how fast AI can recognize objects

Gamalon’s deep learning method improves how fast AI can recognize objects On Tuesday, a company called Gamalon revealed a new technology for machine learning called Bayesian Program Synthesis (BPS).This technology supposedly accelerates the machine learning process by more than 100 times and is available now in two commercialized alpha applications: Gamalon Structure and Gamalon Match.

Robots and AI are coming for our jobs, but can augmentation save us from automation?

Robots and AI are coming for our jobs, but can augmentation save us from automation? With this in mind, we explored the ways in which augmentation may safeguard us from automation.Basically, the whole thesis is to combine human decision making, human intelligence, and human adaptability with the strength and precision of a robot.

Musk: Humans Must Merge With Machines to Survive AI

Musk: Humans Must Merge With Machines to Survive AI If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em: That’s Elon Musk’s theory on artificial intelligence—a field he both fears and profits from.” Now, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO believes humans can ride out the robot revolution by merging with machines—or risk becoming irrelevant.

Google's DeepMind survival sim shows how AI can become hostile or cooperative

Google's DeepMind survival sim shows how AI can become hostile or cooperative Google’s DeepMind AI firm pitted a pair of neural networks against each other in two different survival scenarios.In the fruit-gathering scenario, the two AIs (indicated by red and blue squares) move across a grid in order to pick up green “fruit” squares.

Google's AI Learned to Be "Highly Aggressive" When Stressed

Google's AI Learned to Be "Highly Aggressive" When Stressed This time, Google’s latest machine learning system, DeepMind, has learned to respond to stress with extreme aggression.Researchers ran a simple fruit gathering program in which two versions of DeepMind would compete to gather as many apples as possible.

Speed-Reading AI Processes Data in 'Minutes'

Speed-Reading AI Processes Data in 'Minutes' A milestone technological advancement, machine learning is not yet ready for primetime; data engineers are still training AI to operate autonomously.But why wait months (or years) for artificial intelligence to get up to speed, when you could hone a computer in a matter of hours?

Valve is teaching an AI to find Counter-Strike cheaters

Valve is teaching an AI to find Counter-Strike cheaters In a Reddit post, Valve confirmed that it has started work on an AI that is learning the difference between cheaters and highly skilled players.More: Valve responds to requests to shut down ‘Counter-Strike’ weapon skin trading On the Global Offensive Subreddit, users posited why Valve had not created some kind of safeguard against cheaters who use spinbots.
