Powerful new AI framework turbocharges automated learning process

May 23rd, 2019 at 12:44 am » Comments Off

Framework improves ‘continual learning’ for artificial intelligence Researchers have developed a new framework for deep neural networks that allows artificial intelligence (AI) systems to better learn new tasks while “forgetting” less of what it has learned regarding previous tasks. The researchers have also demonstrated that using the framework to learn a new task can make […]



Giving citizenship to bots

May 22nd, 2019 at 11:08 am » Comments Off

The crypto friendly island of Malta wants to give civil liberties to bots and other forms of artificial intelligence. Some experts say this is a profoundly bad idea. Six years ago, when Amazon started talking about using delivery drones, many people thought they must be joking. Far from it—drones are now very much a reality: […]



What is Web 3.0 ?

May 20th, 2019 at 12:05 pm » Comments Off

Have You Been Wondering What Web 3.0 Is? If you’ve been hanging out with techie friends at a conference lately, you’ve probably heard the term “Web 3.0.” And if you haven’t yet, you probably will soon. But if it’s one of those questions you’re a little ashamed to ask, don’t be. Not many people know […]



MIT AI model is ‘significantly’ better at predicting breast cancer

May 13th, 2019 at 10:41 am » Comments Off

The model can find breast cancer earlier and eliminates racial disparities in screening. MIT researchers have invented a new AI-driven way of looking at mammograms that can help detect breast cancer in women up to five years in advance. A deep learning model created by a team of researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial […]



The new digital divide is between people who opt out of algorithms and people who don’t

May 8th, 2019 at 11:53 am » Comments Off

Every aspect of life can be guided by artificial intelligence algorithms—from choosing what route to take for your morning commute, to deciding whom to take on a date, to complex legal and judicial matters such as predictive policing. Big tech companies like Google and Facebook use AI to obtain insights on their gargantuan trove of […]



Are certificates more valuable than college degrees?
