A top Air Force general said the military needs to expand its use of artificial intelligence - like that being used in the controversial Project Maven effort - if it wants to stay ahead of peer competitors and deter war.
Last Wednesday, researchers at Caltech announced that they created an artificial neural network from synthetic DNA that is able to recognize numbers coded in molecules. It's a novel implementation of a classic machine learning test that demonstrates how the very building blocks of life can be harnessed as a computer.
Mastering the strategy, tactical understanding, and team play involved in multiplayer video games represents a critical challenge for AI research. Now, through new developments in reinforcement learning, our agents have achieved human-level performance in Quake III Arena Capture the Flag, a complex multi-agent environment and one of the canonical 3D
The human brain may be the ultimate super computer, but artificial intelligence is catching up so fast that it can now hold a substantive debate with a human.
The world of automated surveillance is booming, with new machine learning techniques giving CCTV cameras the ability to spot troubling behavior without human supervision. And sooner or later, this tech will be coming to a store near you - as illustrated by a new AI security cam built by Japanese telecom giant NTT East and startup Earth Eyes Corp.
Artificial-intelligence research group OpenAI said it created software capable of beating teams of five skilled human players in the video game Dota 2, a milestone in computer science.
A new manifesto by CEO Sundar Pichai explains what they'll allow their AI to do.
This week, researchers at MIT unveiled their latest creation: Norman, a disturbed AI.
Making a world-class supercomputer with thousands of processors and the power appetite of a small town isn't as easy as it used to be.
