One of the potentially devastating side effects of strokes is the loss of ability to speak. Researchers for the most part have adopted “spelling-based” systems that allow patients to type out their words one letter at a time. However, researchers have recently discovered other ways for patients to more quickly... Read more...
Some people are concerned about games like GTA 5 affecting peoples' behavior in real life, but what if those games actually looked like real life? Researchers at Intel Labs may have figured out how to do just that using machine learning to make rendered footage look photorealistic. This technology could just bring... Read more...
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and autonomous driving have been developing at breakneck speeds, and that trend will only continue in the near future. Following in this trend, UK-based Imagination Technologies has now released the IMG Series4, a “next-generation neural-network accelerator (NNA) for advanced... Read more...
Anyone who has ever spent half an hour creating the perfect meme to express what you could have typed in a few words has probably used Imgflip before. The folks at Imgflip created a deep artificial neural network that takes the images that are commonly used to create memes and puts its own text along with them... Read more...
PC gamers who have been around, or who have downloaded the original 1993 Doom, will remember the pixelated Doom guy avatar that was a hallmark of that game. I'd wager a bunch of players wondered at some point what that guy would look like in real life. The answer to that question is here with someone employing an... Read more...
Artificial intelligence has the potential to change lots of things (in good ways) for humanity. Some people, notably Elon Musk, fear an AI arms race could lead to another world war. AI has shown that it is capable of beating humans in games that humans have mastered over many years, such as Google's AlphaGo AI defeating Go world champion Lee Read more...
AI can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what the AI is designed to do. Many AIs are meant to do things like help doctors diagnose disease, though other AI technologies can be turned towards more nefarious deeds. For example, a team of IEEE researchers has devised a method of harnessing an AI to generate... Read more...
After taking a measured, wait-and-see approach to machine learning, Arm is ready to jump into the fold full throttle. Today, the company is following up on its Project Trillium announcement from back in February with new details surrounding its machine learning processor, also known as the neural-network processing...

Imagine playing a game like Skyrim or a sports title where the characters you encounter look like real people or creatures, and not rendered graphics. If implemented correctly, it could add a new level of immersion to gaming. It may not be far off, either. NVIDIA released a paper over the weekend detailing a new... 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...
We've no doubt all listened to a PC "speak" to us at some point in our lives. Today, technologies are advanced enough to make it so that understanding this speech is not an issue, though we're sure many would prefer that solutions sounded less robotic, or so stitched-together.  Google's DeepMind works on developing...

If you're a fan of travel, you're probably going to love what Google has been up to lately. As we've covered many times, Google is no stranger to machine-learning and developing complex and powerful neural networks of computer resources. Now, the company has decided to focus on geography as well as testing you, not... Read more...
Netflix has long chased after methods of improving its movie recommendation algorithms, once even awarding a $1M prize to any team of people who could substantially improve on the then-current design. As part of that process, the company has been researching neural networks. Conventional neural networks are created... Read more...
