AI


A robot operating with a popular internet-based artificial intelligence system consistently gravitates to men over women, white people over people of color, and jumps to conclusions about peoples’ jobs after a glance at their face. The work is believed to be the first to show that robots loaded with an accepted and widely used model …

Why are we on the verge of creating a technology that will combine the computer with the human nervous system into a single complex? How will a person change after connecting with an electronic machine? Can a computer system handle the flood of data from billions of living neurons? I will try to answer these …

This video by the French computer programmer Damien Henry is a clever visual demonstration of machine learning – a term coined by the US computer scientist Arthur Samuel (1901-1990) to describe an algorithm that gives computers the ‘ability to learn without being explicitly programmed’. Using several videos recorded from windows during train rides, Henry trained an algorithm …

Within years, the deployment of Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, to execute human tasks is becoming rampant. To save much time and ensure productivity, humans seek other means of executing difficult tasks without wasting so much effort. In search of a credible solution, we resorted to the adoption and integration of AI technologies. Artificial …

How different would we think about artificial intelligence if AI pioneers Allen Newell and Herbert Simon had won support for the seemingly less hype-prone term of “complex information processing,” rather than “artificial intelligence,” which was ultimately adopted by the field? On the surface, this thought experiment is interesting because it asks if artificial intelligence is …

The “brain in a jar” is a thought experiment of a disembodied human brain living in a jar of sustenance. The thought experiment explores human conceptions of reality, mind, and consciousness. This article will explore a metaphysical argument against artificial intelligence on the grounds that a disembodied artificial intelligence, or a “brain” without a body, is incompatible with …

If you’ve seen photos of a teapot shaped like an avocado or read a well-written article that veers off on slightly weird tangents, you may have been exposed to a new trend in artificial intelligence (AI). Machine learning systems called DALL-E, GPT and PaLM are making a splash with their incredible ability to generate creative work. These systems are known as “foundation models” and are not …

How many of you have read the book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or watched the 1920 fictional play R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek? If you haven’t and you have an inclination towards Artificial Intelligence, you must. That’s where I see the roots of artificial intelligence, stepping out through creative brains. Perhaps, many industry …

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is much more than just a buzzword nowadays. It powers facial recognition in smartphones and computers, translation between foreign languages, systems which filter spam emails and identify toxic content on social media, and can even detect cancerous tumours. These examples, along with countless other existing and emerging applications of AI, help make …

By using hypernetworks, researchers can now preemptively fine-tune artificial neural networks, saving some of the time and expense of training. Artificial intelligence is largely a numbers game. When deep neural networks, a form of AI that learns to discern patterns in data, began surpassing traditional algorithms 10 years ago, it was because we finally had …
