Imagine a robot that learns by trial and error--just like a human. UC Berkeley researchers have now developed algorithms that enable robots to learn motor tasks in this way, marking a milestone in artificial intelligence.
It's a new and significant step forward for artificial intelligence. Scientists have created a simple artificial neural circuit for the very first time. The circuit of about 100 artificial synapses managed to perform a simple version of a typical human task: image classification.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is growing by leaps and bounds as technology improves. In fact, computer systems have been built that can beat human players in games. Yet defeating top human players isn't the same as actually solving a game. Now, though, scientists have solved heads-up limit hold'em po...
There may be a new way to create magic tricks--by using artificial intelligence. Scientists have taught a computer to create magic tricks.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is continuing to improve by leaps and bounds. Now, scientists have turned their efforts to creating an AI program that can learn to solve problems in many different areas. How does it manage this feat? It mimics certain aspects of how a child learns.
Scientists in Germany are using artificial nerve cells to classify different types of data. These silicon 'neurons' could recognize handwritten numbers, or distinguish plant species based on their flowers.
All eyes turned to London this week, as Google announced its latest acquisition in the form of DeepMind, a company that specialises in artificial intelligence technologies.
IBM said it will invest more than $1 billion to establish a new business unit for Watson, as the tech giant hopes to get more revenue from the supercomputer system that beat humans on the television quiz show "Jeopardy".
Intelligence is a very difficult concept and, until recently, no one has succeeded in giving it a satisfactory formal definition.
An algorithm that extends an artificial-intelligence technique to new tasks could aid in analysis of flight delays and social networks.
A new interdisciplinary research center at MIT, funded by the National Science Foundation, aims at nothing less than unraveling the mystery of intelligence.
Robots can do a lot for us: they can explore space or cut our toenails. But do advances in robotics and artificial intelligence hold hidden threats? Three leaders in their fields answer questions about our relationships with robots.
