How artificial intelligence is set to revolutionise driving

Smart, connected cars might well be poised to make motor transportation more fuel and time efficient – as well as safer – but that doesn’t mean the cars of tomorrow won’t be exciting. The RS 7 Sportback piloted driving concept is a 560hp five-door coupe with a top speed of 305kph (189.5mph).

Elon Musk’s artificial intelligence project wants to build a robot – Independent.ie

OpenAI – which is funded by the billionaire maker of reusable rockets and electric cars – hopes to build a domestic robot as a test of its research into how to build artificial intelligence that won’t kill us.

Artificial intelligence algorithm predicts the future

Researchers have developed a deep learning algorithm capable of successfully predicting what will happen in a video clip based on one still clip from the footage. The Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) made the breakthrough in predictive vision by training an algorithm using 600 hundred hours of YouTube videos.

AI just got a big boost in its ability to understand the news

Soon you could be chatting with your computer about the morning news. An AI has learned to read and answer questions about a news article with unprecedented accuracy. Creating AI systems that can learn in the background from humanity’s existing stores of information is one of the big goals of computer science.

HPC is Great for AI, But What Does Supercomputing Stand to Gain?

As we have written about extensively here at The Next Platform, there is no shortage of use cases in deep learning and machine learning where HPC hardware and software approaches have bled over to power next generation applications in image, speech, video, and other classification and learning tasks.

Artificial Intelligence’s White Guy Problem

ACCORDING to some prominent voices in the tech world, artificial intelligence presents a looming existential threat to humanity: Warnings by luminaries like Elon Musk and Nick Bostrom about “the singularity” – when machines become smarter than humans – have attracted millions of dollars and spawned a multitude of conferences.

A Designer’s Guide To The $15 Billion Artificial Intelligence Industry

Artificial intelligence is a $15 billion dollar industry and growing. With more than 2,600 companies developing intelligent technology, the value of AI is expected to rise to more than $70 billion by 2020.

Chatbots And Millennials: How Smart Brands Should Be Using Artificial Intelligence

Brands using chatbots can easily gather information, understand context, and anticipate needs to empower better customer service.

Artificial intelligence mimics judicial reasoning

Computer programs can already match judges in decision-making, a conference highlighting the growing use of artificial intelligence in law heard last night. A poll of more than 300 attendees at the Law Society’s Robots and Lawyers conference found that 48% of respondents’ firms already use some form artificial intelligence (AI) – though only 4% agreed that lawyers will eventually be replaced by robots.
