Google DeepMind recently commenced a new collaboration with the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS). DeepMind is working with Moorfields Eye Hospital in east London. The goal is to create a machine learning system that will be able use digital eye scans in order to recognize sight-threatening conditions. Moorfields Eye Hospital DeepMind researchers will use millions of anonymous eye scans to train an algorithm to better spot the early signs of eye conditions. Professor Peng Tee Khaw, the head of Moorfields’ Ophthalmology Research Centre, remarked, “These scans are incredibly detailed, more detailed than any other scan of the body we do: we can see at the cellular level.” This...

Wondering what's next for AlphaGo, the computer that bested South Korea's Lee Sedol, the world champion in the ancient Chinese board game Go? The artificial intelligence program developed from Google's DeepMind division will go up against Ke Jie, China's top Go grandmaster, sometime in March of next year. This is something the Chinese Go Association wanted to see happen so it got in contact with Google and its AlphaGo team and discussed a possible match. Google returned the interest, and so the two sides will arrange the match and accompanying details this year, assuming nothing unforeseen gets in the way. Ke Jie is an 18-year-old prodigy with all the confidence you'd expect from a young person.... Read more...
World renowned Go player Lee Sedol had aspirations of quickly dispatching with Google’s AlphaGo computer. However, Sedol’s chances of embarrassing Google’s DeepMind AI quickly started to evaporate when AlphaGo won the first match. Then AlphaGo won the second match, and early this morning, Google’s AI finished off Sedol, taking its record to 3-0. According to Google, AlphaGo won by resignation after 176 moves had been completed. This challenge was the first time that computer gone up against such a highly-skilled Go player, and it did so in a convincing fashion. With its overall victory sealed, the AlphaGo team takes home a $1 million prize, which will be donated to STEM societies and UNICEF (among... Read more...
Chalk one up for artificial intelligence! Google’s AlphaGo computer, which hails from Google’s DeepMind division, scored a decisive victory over one of the most decorated Go players in the world. Alpha Go played in “such a perfect manner,” says Lee Sedol, who was defeated in roughly three and a half hours. Go is an ancient Chinese board game, which has been deemed more difficult to play and master than chess. So it’s quite remarkable that AlphaGo was able to defeat one of the world’s most Go players in the first computer versus human matchup. Like Deep Blue’s (IBM) win over chess great Garry Kasparov two decades ago, this marks an incredible leap forward for the advancement of artificial intelligence.... Read more...
Charlie Rose sat down with Google’s Larry Page to talk turkey about the present and future of Google and technology at a TED talk, and the main takeaway is that the most exciting innovations are yet to come. If there was any doubt about Google’s intentions in the AI space, making computers smarter, Page made it clear how Google sees things shaping up in the years to come. “Computing’s kind of a mess,” he said. “Your computer doesn’t know where you are, what you know, what you’re doing. We’re trying to make devices work, to understand your context and what you might need.” (One could argue that there are a lot of people who like it the... Read more...
