Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross

Watch Artificial Intelligence Lose Its Mind While Watching Bob Ross | @IFLScience  #AI

  • It features an episode of the stoner-favorite television show The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross through Google’s neural network DeepDream.
  • DeepDream is a convolutional neural network, a style of computing inspired by the brain, that identifies and recognizes images and patterns.
  • As Reben explains in the description: “This artwork represents what it would be like for an AI to watch Bob Ross on LSD (once someone invents digital drugs).
  • The unique characteristics of the human voice are learned and generated as well as hallucinations of a system trying to find images which are not there.”
  • Google made the code for DeepDream open-source, meaning there are plenty of videos, images, and apps that utilize it.

Ever wondered what it would be like for artificial intelligence to trip-out while watching Bob Ross paint a pretty picture?

Ridley Scott Talks Artificial Intelligence in ‘Alien: Covenant’ Featurette

Ridley Scott Talks Artificial Intelligence in ‘Alien: Covenant’ Featurette

  • From Ash to Bishop to David, the Alien franchise has become known for its android characters, and we’ll be meeting a new one in the form of Walter (played by Michael Fassbender) in this year’s Alien: Covenant.
  • But what’s interesting here in 2017, unlike in 1979, is that real technology has finally caught up with movie technology; Walter, made out of 3D molds and with a memory chip for a brain, doesn’t feel quite as futuristic as Ash did back in the original Alien.
  • Ridley Scott, along with son Luke Scott, talks artificial intelligence in this new Alien: Covenant featurette video from Wired.
  • Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) stars with Michael Fassbender returning as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills).
  • Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition

    Ridley Scott had previously promised to answer questions that left Prometheus viewers confused: “Covenant is really going to show you who did it and why.”

Once computers start to think, we’re all in trouble. From Ash to Bishop to David, the Alien franchise has become known for its android characters, and we’l

Updated Brain Map Identifies Nearly 100 New Regions

This new map of the brain was made with artificial intelligence to identify hidden regions

  • Project Seeks to Build Map of Human Brain FEB. 17, 2013
  • Science | Updated Brain Map Identifies Nearly 100 New Regions
  • Mapping the Highways of the Brain JAN. 6, 2014
  • In 1907, Korbinian Brodmann published a catalog of 52 brain regions.
  • Twelve of the research subjects, for example, have a 55b region that’s split into two isolated patches.
