Google’s AI beats a professional Go player, an industry first

Google has achieved something major in artificial intelligence (AI) research. A computer system it has built to play the ancient Chinese board game Go has managed to win a match against a professional Go...

Next Big Test for AI: Making Sense of the World

A new database will gauge progress in artificial intelligence, as computers try to grasp what’s going on in scenes shown in photographs. A few years ago, a breakthrough in machine learning suddenly enabled computers to...

When big data gets too big, this machine-learning algorithm may be the answer

Big data may hold a world of untapped potential, but what happens when your data set is bigger than your processing power can handle? A new algorithm that taps quantum computing may be able...

We make the software, you make the robots

I had the pleasure of sitting down (virtually, over Skype) with Andreas Mueller, core developer and maintainer of the popular scikit-learn machine learning library. We had previously bonded over our shared goals of making...

Deep Feelings On Deep Learning

So I want to build Artificial Emotional Intelligence (AEI), and I already wrote about a possible application to treat mental health problems. Even the big guns like Apple Inc. are trying to build AEI...

The Neural Network That Remembers

On tap at the brewpub. A nice dark red color with a nice head that left a lot of lace on the glass. Aroma is of raspberries and chocolate. Not much depth to speak...

The Rise of the Artificially Intelligent Hedge Fund

Last week, Ben Goertzel and his company, Aidyia, turned on a hedge fund that makes all stock trades using artificial intelligence—no human intervention required. “If we all die,” says Goertzel, a longtime AI guru and the...

Microsoft moves its CNTK deep learning toolkit from CodePlex to GitHub

Microsoft is announcing today that it’s moving the repository for its Computational Network Toolkit (CNTK) open-source deep learning software from Microsoft’s CodePlex source code repository hosting site to GitHub, a popular site for hosting...

Beyond the Fence, and the Advent of the Creative Machines

Computers being involved in the creation of art is not a new development. (Consider my use of the word computer throughout this post as roughly equivalent to the cringe-worthy use of the word server in any of your favorite...

What machine learning will gain in 2016

Machine learning is no longer some esoteric practice limited to mystical incantations by data scientists. It's now a mainstream presence thanks to ubiquitous big data, and easier tooling and frameworks. Here are four ways the...
