If you’re a regular user of Google Photos, then you know that the app and online version of the service uses machine learning to “put a name to a face”, making it easy to organize or search for photos by typing in a person’s name. Or you could type in the search term “beach”, for example, to bring up some photos from... Read more...
Watch out world, machines are beating flesh and blood opponents in a variety of different contests. There was Watson, a smarty pants question answering system developed by IBM that took on and defeated the world's best Jeopardy opponents. Then Google's DeepMind division built an artificial intelligence program called... Read more...
According to Google, more than half of the world's population is still without Internet access. One of Google's ambitious goals is to change that statistic. That's no easy task for several reasons, one of which is that some locations are just too remote for ISPs to set foot in. Google has been experimenting with... Read more...
You don't need to look very far to see examples of how machine- and deep-learning could enrich our lives. You might be surprised, given how often we hear about deep-learning nowadays, that most companies have only been utilizing the technology to a notable degree for the past couple of years - including Amazon...

It's clearer than ever that our future is going to include a lot of automation, and that even includes our passenger cars, trucks, and mass transit. Companies like Google, Tesla, and NVIDIA have been working hard to develop technologies that will allow people to drive without even having to pay attention to the road... Read more...
Finally. That's all that can be really said about Apple admitting to the world that it's working on autonomous driving technologies. The company has been infamously, and perhaps infuriatingly mum on the fact that it's been working on such tech, even though there have been a countless number of hints to it. Well, we... Read more...
Google's DeepMind has been working on some truly incredible things over the past couple of years. Just last week, we learned that DeepMind would be teaching itself how to play StarCraft II, which wouldn't be the first time it had a gaming focus. Before Google acquired DeepMind a couple of years ago, its AI was used to... Read more...
IBM has just made available to developers an experimental version of Project Intu, a system agnostic platform that allows for the integration of Watson capabilities into various end-user form factors. With Project Intu, developers can incorporate cognitive experiences into a variety of products and services, including... Read more...
A lot has been accomplished with Google's DeepMind artificial intelligence subsidiary, and it looks like the progress train isn't about to slow down anytime soon. As a quick recap, this year alone we've seen DeepMind take down a Go player, get started on an AI kill switch, attempt to cure blindness, improve speech... Read more...
Let’s face it, cancer sucks! We’re sure that at all of us knows someone who is battling cancer or has lost a friend of close family member due to the perils of cancer.
