Stories are part of the curriculum for artificial intelligence robots

Researchers at Georgia Tech with support from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) have designed an ingenious – arguably – artificial intelligence (AI) software that will teach robots the difference between right and wrong. Through the art of storytelling, the software, called Quixote, should teach the robot acceptable behavior in social gatherings.

Elon Musk Wants to Put a Computer in Your Brain

Neural lace isn’t just some hypothetical concept Musk is cooking up — there are real moves being made right now to develop this technology. Just last year, a group of nanotech chemists and engineers published a paper about an ultra-fine mesh that can merge with the brain, providing a flexible circuit that could interface with neurons.

Google Pioneers Hybrid Approach to Quantum Computing

The 8 Ball supercomputer, a spherical monolith that can harness the rules of quantum mechanics to solve vastly complex problems, is not real. It’s actually a quantum computer that appeared in a short story written by science fiction novelist Gregory Dale Bear last year.

New regs for Monday: Artificial intelligence, mining, efficiency

Monday’s edition of the Federal Register contains new property disclosure requirements for mining companies and a review of artificial intelligence. Here’s what is happening: Artificial intelligence: The Obama administration is looking into artificial intelligence. The White House’s Office of Science and Technology Policy announced Friday a request for information as it considers the challenges and opportunities presented by artificial intelligence.

Q&A: AI2 researcher Peter Clark explains how the cloud is changing artificial intelligence

Peter Clark is a senior research manager at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, overseeing Project Aristo, an effort to build an AI system with the ability to answer questions from standardized exams, starting on 4th grade science tests, with the goal of advancing to higher grades in the future.

Self-Driving Car Dilemma: Artificial Intelligence May Be Forced To Choose Between Saving Passengers Or Pedestrians

Self-driving cars may be the new direction for the automotive industry, even though realistically it could be decades before we start seeing them all around us. That isn’t stopping some from pondering a moral dilemma these cars may pose. When you take the control away from the driver, you are giving the motor vehicle power to make judgment calls.

Is There a Role for Artificial Intelligence in Local Government?

Adaptive systems that track changing consumption patterns could help local government find value in AI.

LRASM, First US Missile with Artificial Intelligence, to be Deployed by 2018

An anti-ship cruise missile (ASCM) developed by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that “thinks” thanks to its onboard artificial intelligence (AI) will arm U.S. Navy warships and strike aircraft beginning 2019 and U.S. Air Force combat aircraft in 2018.

These are the 5 key problems Google is looking to solve with artificial intelligence

Why the photo of a robot hugging Jimmy Fallon? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It just felt right. Google has its fingers in just about everything these days, and the tech giant is making a hard push into artificial intelligence. So, what do the brains working on AI view as the biggest problems moving forward?

Bot business booming, Gen Xers losing, Brexitears for Bremainers

Artificial intelligence (AI) on the rise with human simplemindedness this week as the former embraces the business opportunities being generated by the latter. The smart money is riding on big bot business ventures, starting with – who else? – Elon Musk.
