IBM is teaching AI to behave more like the human brain

Can a machine make memories? How IBM is exploring neural network learning in #AI:  @engadget

  • Deep learning neural networks — the likes of which power AlphaGo as well as the current generation of image recognition and language translation systems — are the best machine learning systems we’ve developed to date.
  • While neurons use their various connections with each other to recognize patterns, “We are explicitly forcing the network to discover the relationships that exist” between pairs of objects in a given scenario, Timothy Lillicrap, a computer scientist at DeepMind told Science Magazine.When subsequently tasked in June with answering complex questions…
  • In a pair of research papers presented at the 2017 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence held in Melbourne, Australia last week, IBM submitted two studies: one looking into how to grant AI an “attention span”, the other examining how to apply the biological process of neurogenesis — that is,…

  • Basically the attention model will cover the short term, active, thought process while the memory portion will enable the network to streamline its function depending on the current situation.But don’t expect to see AIs rivalling the depth of human consciousness anytime soon, Rish warns.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink: Potential to Transform the World

Elon Musk's Neuralink: Potential to Transform the World #AI #DataScience

  • Neuralink is the perfect marriage between the human brain and a computer.
  • Elon Musk announced the hypothetical Brain Computer Interface (BCI), the Neuralink technology, in March this year.
  • Once integrated, the technology will work in a similar manner to how humans control and move their limbs and process external stimuli and information.
  • With electrodes processing human brain functions, technology will be more perceptive to human emotions.
  • The experience that a computer integrated directly with the human brain can provide will be far greater than any gaming module.

Elon Musk’s Neuralink possesses the potential to revolutionize technology and life. Mind and machine joining as one will open the doors to a new world.

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…

  • Team members see how much the company is investing in bringing them together.”
  • Team members are reminded of their colleagues’ humanity and learn to respect and better understand each other in ways that don’t materialize when they only engage remotely.
  • A team becomes more productive and cohesive as a result.
  • The technology that supports virtual meetings and dispersed teams is only getting better and less expensive.
  • A couple of years back, one of the teams decided to meet in-person about halfway through.

Dispersed teams trust more and function better when exposed to their colleagues’ non-verbal cues, best communicated in-person.

SAPVoice: Are You Ready For Artificially-Intelligent Enterprise Applications?

Yes, it's already here. #Foxwordy @Forbes: Ready for #AI-powered enterprise apps?  @SAP

  • For example, recruiters often have to go through thousands of job applications to identify suitable candidates.
  • It’s not hard to find parallels between how new technologies are changing the world today, and how they will affect our business systems in the future.
  • Accounting systems can easily match invoices and payments if they have the same reference number, or the same amount.
  • Machine learning and predictive algorithms can help.
  • Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.

We’re now clearly in an exponential technology world. Each year brings the same amount of innovation as the previous several years — and the human brain finds it hard to imagine the consequences. For perhaps the first time in history, technology is evolving faster than we expect it to. For example, […]
