This new AI can read your mind and predict your thoughts

This new AI can read your mind and predict your thoughts -   #ArtificialIntelligence  #AI

  • Today, various pieces of software can do everything from chat with us on Facebook Messenger to guiding the Mars rover Curiosity while its human engineers catch a nap.
  • The group’s new software takes a novel approach to guessing what is going on inside a human brain, using data gathered from brain scans via fMRI to predict human thoughts by seeing how the pattern of brain activity that produces them, then detecting it in reverse.
  • “One of the big advances of the human brain was the ability to combine individual concepts into complex thoughts,” lead researcher Marcel Just explains.
  • The discovery of this correspondence between thoughts and brain activation patterns tells us what the thoughts are built of.”
  • The algorithm was then trained using this data, and learned to detect the same patterns occurring again, accurately predicting what a person was about to say a stunning 90 percent of the time.

At one point in our history, the most impressive example of artificial intelligence was a computer that was really, really good at chess. Today, various pieces…

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning

A Visual Introduction to Machine Learning  #IIoT #IoT #IoE #InternetOfThings #MachineLearning

  • Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed.
  • In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome.
  • From our friends at R2D3 is a very interesting visual introduction to machine learning.

Facebook is using machine learning to prevent suicide

Facebook is using machine learning to prevent suicide  #technology

  • Social networks have made headlines for inadvertently providing a forum for those planning to take their own lives, with a number of people livestreaming their suicide attempts.

    Identifying high-risk cases

    Facebook has now taken the initiative to monitor its network actively for hints that someone may be contemplating to commit suicide.

  • “The AI is actually more accurate than the reports that we get from people that are flagged as suicide and self-injury,” Facebook Product Manager Vanessa Callison-Burch said in an interview with BuzzFeed News.
  • To tackle the live video streaming of suicide attempts, Facebook has also launched a new tool for friends to report videos that concern them.

    How other digital platforms react

    If you search ‘how to commit suicide’ on Google, the search engine flags up the Samaritan’s helpline, along with ads for a number of other support organisations.

Google translate is now able to translate even more languages, thanks to AI

The #AI that works like a human brain for Google translate  #technology

  • Google is trying to make Google Translate more accurate by expanding the number of languages that are supported by its neural machine translation software.
  • The Californian search giant announced on Monday that Hindi, Russian, and Vietnamese will be powered by neural machine translation in the next couple of weeks.
  • Eight other languages are already using neural machine translation technology.
  • “Neural translation is a lot better than our previous technology, because we translate whole sentences at a time, instead of pieces of a sentence,” wrote Barak Turovsky, product lead on Google Translate, in the blog post.
  • Turovsky added that Google will be rolling out neural machine translation to other languages in the coming weeks.
