OpenAI Universe allows your AI to train on games, browsers by looking at screen pixels. Uses Gym (also OSS) for algo devs

We’re releasing Universe, a software platform for measuring and training an AI’s general intelligence across the world’s supply of games, websites and other applications. Universe allows an AI agent to use a computer like a human does: by looking at screen pixels and operating a virtual keyboard and mouse. We must train AI systems on […]

How IBM Watson saved the life of a woman dying from cancer, exec says – Business Insider

“There’s a 60-year-old woman in Tokyo. She was at the University of Tokyo. She had been diagnosed with leukemia six years ago. She was living, but not healthy. So the University of Tokyo ran her genomic sequence through Watson and it was able to ascertain that they were off by one thing. Actually, she had […]

AMD Introduces Radeon Instinct Machine Intelligence And Deep Learning Accelerators

AMD is announcing a new series of Radeon-branded products today, targeted at machine intelligence (AI) and deep learning enterprise applications, called Radeon Instinct. As its name suggests, the new Radeon Instinct line of products are comprised of GPU-based solutions for deep learning, inference, and training. The new GPUs are also complemented by a free, open-source library […]

Chicago Face Database

The Chicago Face Database was developed at the University of Chicago by Debbie S. Ma, Joshua Correll, and Bernd Wittenbrink. The CFD is intended for use in scientific research. It provides high-resolution, standardized photographs of male and female faces of varying ethnicity between the ages of 17-65. Extensive norming data are available for each individual […]

TensorFlow — Googles’ Open Source Software Library for Machine Intelligence

TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile […]

Google’s AI translation tool seems to have invented its own secret internal language

If you can translate from A to B and from B to C can you translate from A to C without learning the translations directly? Well yes you can. So the translate AI has created its’ own language B (we think) that can function as a midpoint between not only A and C, but also […]

Miles Deep – AI Porn Video Editor

Using a deep convolutional neural network with residual connections, Miles Deep quickly classifies each second of a pornographic video into 6 categories based on sexual act with 95% accuracy. Then it uses that classification to automatically edit the video. It can remove all the scenes not containing sexual contact, or edit out just a specific […]

A.I. Experiments by Google

Google’s Photo Scan App Makes Backing Up Old Snapshots Easy as Hell

The Photo Scan app launched by Google today for iOS and Android lets you scan printed photos in just a couple of seconds, using machine learning to correct imperfections in the capture process that they look great every time. Here’s how it works: Download the app, and open it up. You’ll see a viewfinder. Hold […]

Top of the bots: This AI isn’t a cold, cruel killing machine – it’s a pop music hit machine

Great article about AI being used to create musical art, with links. The music sounds good too! Source: Top of the bots: This AI isn’t a cold, cruel killing machine – it’s a pop music hit machine

The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit now on Github: deep learning AI that recognises human speech at very low error rates

The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit—previously known as CNTK—helps you harness the intelligence within massive datasets through deep learning. Source: The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit – Microsoft Research They also offer RESTful APIs on another site, Cognitive Services, with applications you can tap into and APIs for vison, speech, language, knowledge and search. They usually offer free testing, […]

Someone built an AI chatbot from a text message database of a dead man, works quite well

It had been three months since Roman Mazurenko, Kuyda’s closest friend, had died. Kuyda had spent that time gathering up his old text messages, setting aside the ones that felt too personal, and feeding the rest into a neural network built by developers at her artificial intelligence startup. She had struggled with whether she was […]

CIA Can Anticipate Social Unrest ‘Three to Five Days’ Out in Some Cases

The agency, Hallman said, has significantly improved its “anticipatory intelligence,” using a mesh of sophisticated algorithms and analytics against complex systems to better predict the flow of everything from illicit cash to extremists around the globe. Deep learning and other forms of machine learning can help analysts understand how seemingly disparate data sets might be […]

AI Machine-learning models vulnerable to reverse engineering

In a paper [PDF] presented in August at the 25th Annual Usenix Security Symposium, researchers at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Cornell University, and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill showed that machine learning models can be stolen and that basic security measures don’t really mitigate attacks. Machine learning models may, for example, […]

Unintended consequences of AI: Amazon Echo seems to condition kids to be rude

Alexa will put up with just about anything. She has a remarkable tolerance for annoying behavior, and she certainly doesn’t care if you forget your please and thank yous. But while artificial intelligence technology can blow past such indignities, parents are still irked by their kids’ poor manners when interacting with Alexa, the assistant that […]

Swarm A.I. Correctly Predicts the Kentucky Derby, Accurately Picking all Four Horses of the Superfecta at 540 to 1 Odds – showing that humans can swarm

Until recently, the human species has been unable to take advantage of this fundamental biological technique, for we didn’t evolve the ability to swarm. Enter Unanimous A.I., a Silicon Valley startup founded in 2014 by serial entrepreneur and researcher Dr. Louis Rosenberg. The core question Rosenberg set out to answer was: Can humans swarm, and […]

Fathom – AI Neural Network learning accelerator on a USB stick

Movidius is also introducing the Fathom Neural Compute Stick — the first product of its kind — a modular deep learning accelerator in the form of a standard USB stick. Featuring a full-fledged Myriad 2 VPU, the Fathom Neural Compute Stick not only enables rapid prototyping, but also delivers high levels of neural network compute […]

MedNexus – new search engine for evidence based medical information

Navigating the sea of information available online can be daunting at best, and dangerous at worst. Our MLA (Machine Learning Algorithms) vet the clinical impact and relevance of new research. We want to cut out the noise and pseudo-science. Source: MedNexus Hopefully better than using Google!

Machine Learning Inspired by Human Learning  – AI can learn handwriting using a single example

Taking inspiration from the way humans seem to learn, scientists have created AI software capable of picking up new knowledge in a far more efficient and sophisticated way. The new AI program can recognize a handwritten character about as accurately as a human can, after seeing just a single example. The best existing machine-learning algorithms, […]

How Ashley Madison Hid Its Fembot Con From Users and Investigators

The developers at Ashley Madison created their first artificial woman sometime in early 2002. Her nickname was Sensuous Kitten, and she is listed as the tenth member of Ashley Madison in the company’s leaked user database. On her profile, she announces: “I’m having trouble with my computer … send a message!” Source: How Ashley Madison […]

Evolving swarm intelligence in robots

The Lausanne university in Switserland has moved from the software to the reality: they’ve managed to get robots to evolve and learn behaviours, as well as the behaviour to decieve and cooperate through communication (flashing lights) and movement. It’ s a very interesting experiment, showing that robots are getting smarter every day and are now […]
