Detecting Intelligence

Intelligence is a complex concept and can be difficult to define. How we define it will determine how we go about attempting to detect it. If we use a simplistic definition that only includes computation speed and accuracy and amount of information, we will use those factors to determine whether or not we have detected […]

Multidimensional Intelligence

Intelligence is often presented as a simple linear scale that ranges from some description of “low” to some description of “high”. In fact, intelligence takes on different forms. The linear scale is often used to describe factors like: computational speed, computational accuracy, and amount of knowledge stored. While these all should be included in an […]

Trusting Robots

The article below points out that trust will be earned over time. This trust will come not from the physical appearance of the object being interacted with, but by the intelligence of the software creating the interaction. The more human-like the software interaction is, the more room there is to build trust. How Robots Will […]

A Limit to Intelligence

In Singularity theory, we often assume there is no limit to the growth of intelligence. That may not be an accurate assumption. While we cannot currently define a limiting factor, it is possible that the growth of intelligence approximates a hyperbolic curve that approaches an asymptote but never crosses it. We reached the assumption of […]

The Augmented Age

The incredible inventions of intuitive AI | Maurice Conti – [youtube.com] What do you get when you give a design tool a digital nervous system? Computers that improve our ability to think and imagine, and robotic systems that come up with (and build) radical new designs for bridges, cars, drones and much more — all […]

Python Programming for a RNN

Recurrent Neural Networks Tutorial, Part 1 – Introduction to RNNs – [wildml.com] Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs) are popular models that have shown great promise in many NLP tasks. But despite their recent popularity I’ve only found a limited number of resources that throughly explain how RNNs work, and how to implement them. That’s what this […]

Recurrent Neural Networks

Neural network software uses layers of computational cells that supply feedback across the layers to adjust coefficient values and “train” the network to provide a desired result. Once the network has been trained, it can be supplied input data that is not predetermined and it will output a result that offers some form of analysis […]

1948 – Moravec – bio

Hans Moravec was born in Austria in 1948 and has contributed influential work in robotics and artificial intelligence. He has also done work in the fields of transhumanism and space tethers (space elevator). In 1998, in “Mind Children”, he wrote, “it is comparatively easy to make computers exhibit adult level performance on intelligence tests or […]

Language Translating Earpiece

This earpiece, being developed by Waverly Labs has the ability to connect users via a smartphone and translate both email and the spoken word from one language into another in real time. It also enables other functions, such as note taking, reminders, and scheduling. Can You Hear Me in French? – [youtube.com] WAVERLYLABS – [waverlylabs.com]

“Hover Camera” Floats and Follows Using AI

Power it on, flip it open, and it hovers in the air, then will follow you anywhere and take 13 megapixel pictures and record 4K video. It uses a location and mapping algorithm to combine data from a down-facing camera, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope to determine where it is. Then it uses facial and […]
