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…

Artificial intelligence wrecks poker pros to stack up a profit of $800,000

Artificial intelligence wrecks poker pros to stack up a profit of $800,000

  • Artificial intelligence wrecks poker pros to stack up a profit of $800,000
  • The showdown takes place as part of the ” Brains vs. Artificial Intelligence ” competition which pits a group of four poker pros against the crafty supercomputer Libratus in a heads-up game of No-Limit Texas Hold’em slated to continue for 120,000 hands.
  • While Libratus still has 55,000 hands to play against the pros, it seems to be confidently striding on its way to victory.
  • Following last year’s historical triumph of Google’s DeepMind-based AlphaGo AI over leading Go player Lee Sedol, Libratus offers further proof that artificial intelligence systems are gradually starting to best even the most talented human players.
  • Back in 2015, a supercomputer under the moniker ‘Claudico’ squared off with a group of poker pros, but ultimately ended up unable to turn a profit against the humans.

University-built artificial intelligence has been absolutely dismantling a team of professional poker players in a heads-up game of No-Limit Texas Hold’em.

Facebook’s advice to students interested in artificial intelligence

  • Facebook turns its attention to the actual mechanics of getting a job in the field of machine learning.
  • Amazon isn’t playing nice with Plex’s new cloud service
  • Posted yesterday by John Mannes ( @JohnMannes )
  • Logojoy turns design into an AI-powered, iterative process
  • Once there, students should work to address a specific problem and try to release a piece of open source code before all is said and done.

Math. Math. Oh and perhaps some more math. That’s the gist of the advice to students interested in AI from Facebook’s Yann LeCun and Joaquin Quiñonero..

MIT and Microsoft Have Teamed Up to Create the World’s First “Smart-Tattoo”

.@MIT & @Microsoft make the world's first

  • DuoSkin draws from the aesthetics found in metallic jewelry-like temporary tattoos to create on-skin devices which resemble jewelry.
  • Subscribe to Complex Video via Complex NEWS
  • DuoSkin is a fabrication process that enables anyone to create customized functional devices that can be attached directly on their skin.
  • It also allows a person to share data with others by simply rubbing onto the tattoo.
  • If you get the tattoo on your forearm, it’s probably best to stay inside when it’s raining and when lightning strikes.

Apple brings Google-style machine learning to ‘Photos’

Apple brings Google-style machine learning to 'Photos' #WWDC2016

  • Apple brings Google-style machine learning to ‘Photos’
  • Photos now offers up new ways to re-surface forgotten photos too – much like Google Photos.
  • The features borrow some of the best features from Google Photos, like re-surfacing memorable events, creating albums based on events, people and places, and using deep learning to help find images in a more intuitive way.
  • It’s essentially facial recognition that works on places and objects as well.
  • Instead of periodically sorting through old photos, Apple brings these memories to life with a new feature called… wait for it… ‘Memories.’
