DeepMind developing an artificial intelligence with imagination

DeepMind, a British artificial intelligence firm acquired by Google in 2014, is building an AI capable of “imagination” and understanding the consequences of previous actions. In two research papers submitted last week, DeepMind describes how the AI would be able to “construct a plan” and remember information that may be important in the future. See […]

Jabil and eyeSight to keep an eye on you in the self-driving future

Jabil and eyeSight have announced a partnership to develop ‘next-generation’ driver monitoring and gesture control solutions for automotive customers. The monitoring technology checks the attentiveness of the driver in real-time, recognizing when they are not attentive or drowsy. In the video, the software alerts the driver through audio cues, although visual and sensory alerts could […]

Facebook creates AI that negotiates in unknown new language

Facebook AI Research (FAIR) has been working on artificial intelligence (AI) agents that negotiate for the best deal, using all the complexities of language, reasoning, and deception that humans use. In the tests, conducted over several months, Facebook found that when left to their own devices, two AI agents created an unknown new language, to […]

Andrew Ng, a co-founder of Coursera and Baidu chief scientist for three years, has left the company to create his own AI startup, called Deeplearning.ai. Ng has been a prominent face at Baidu, helping the company’s expansion into artificial intelligence and autonomous cars. In his leaving message, Ng said that he wanted to create an […]

How Monsanto protects crops with artificial intelligence

Monsanto, the leading producer of genetically modified crops (GMOs), has announced a partnership with Atomwise. The controversial corporation will use Atomwise’s artificial intelligence expertise to discover molecules that could protect crops quicker. Atomwise uses deep learning algorithms to discover molecules that might have the desired effect, rather than look at every individual molecule. The program […]

3DSignals decipher machine maintenance with sound analytics

One of the most compelling aspects of industrial IoT is the ability of sensor technology to solve problems that have plagued traditional industries for years if not decades. One such problem is machine maintenance and repairs. Up until recently, such maintenance was typically time-consuming, costly and limited by the challenge of finding appropriately skilled workers. […]
