Social rewards such as praise are known to enhance various stages of the learning process. Now, researchers from Japan have found that praise delivered by artificial beings such as robots and virtual graphics-based agents can have effects similar to praise delivered by humans, with important practical applications as social services such as education increasingly move […]

AI scientists who build reinforcement learning agents may learn a great deal from animals. That’s according to new studies by Google’s DeepMind, Imperial College London, and researchers from the University of Cambridge testing AI and non-human animals.  The AI research group has always looked at neuroscience and behavioral science for inspiration and to better understand […]

As long as humans have built machines, we’ve feared the day they could destroy us. Stephen Hawking famously warned that AI could spell an end to civilization. But to many AI researchers, these conversations feel unmoored. It’s not that they don’t fear AI running amok—it’s that they see it already happening, just not in the ways most people would expect. AI is now screening job candidates, diagnosing disease, and identifying criminal suspects. But instead of making these decisions more efficient or fair, it’s often perpetuating the biases of the humans on whose decisions it was trained.

Researchers from Pfizer and IBM claim to have developed a technique for machine learning that can predict Alzheimer’s disease years before symptoms develop. The team says their strategy achieved 71 percent specificity when evaluated against a group of cognitively stable people by evaluating small samples of language data collected from clinical verbal studies.  Alzheimer’s disease […]

For a long time , the concept of success was synonymous with three terms for startups and big tech firms alike: development of hockey sticks. To scale is to be capable of rapid user and revenue growth. However, according to a recent paper published by Google senior research scientist Alex Hanna and independent researcher Tina […]

In our daily lives, artificial intelligence has arrived — from search engines to self-driving vehicles. In recent years, this has to do with the immense computational capacity that has become available. But recent AI research findings now show that it is possible to use simpler, smaller neural networks to solve such tasks much faster, more […]
