book | Biophysics of Consciousness

18 Červen, 2018 - 10:38
The problem of how the brain produces consciousness, subjectivity and “something it is like to be” remains one of the greatest challenges to a complete science of the natural world. While various scientists and philosophers approach the problem from their own unique perspectives and in the terms of their own respective fields, Biophysics of Consciousness: A [...]

Emotion AI Summit

18 Červen, 2018 - 07:00
fWe live, work and play side-by-side with artificial intelligence — it’s in the fabric of our lives. It can be seen in the devices and tech we use across: at home, in the places we work, in our cars. Today, AI is doing things on our behalf. It’s making us more efficient, faster and sometimes [...]

book | Artificial Unintelligence

18 Červen, 2018 - 07:00
A guide to understanding the inner workings and outer limits of technology and why we should never assume that computers always get it right. In Artificial Unintelligence, Meredith Broussard argues that our collective enthusiasm for applying computer technology to every aspect of life has resulted in a tremendous amount of poorly designed systems. We are so [...]

IBM researchers use analog memory to train deep neural networks faster and more efficiently

15 Červen, 2018 - 18:56
Imagine advanced artificial intelligence (AI) running on your smartphone — instantly presenting the information that’s relevant to you in real time. Or a supercomputer that requires hundreds of times less energy. The IBM Research AI team has demonstrated a new approach that they believe is a major step toward those scenarios. Deep neural networks normally [...]

Summit supercomputer is world’s fastest

12 Červen, 2018 - 22:51
Summit — the world’s most powerful supercomputer, with a peak performance of 200,000 trillion calculations per second, or 200 petaflops* peak performance — was announced June 8 by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The previous leading supercomputer was China’s Sunway TaihuLight, with 125 petaflops peak performance.** Summit will enable researchers to [...]

roundup | AI powers cars, photos, phones, and people

8 Červen, 2018 - 23:48
Huge self-driving-car video dataset may help reduce accidents Berkeley Deep Drive, the largest-ever self-driving car dataset, has been released by BDD Industry Consortium for free public download. It features 100,000 HD videos on cars and labeled objects, with GPS and other data — 800 times larger than Baidu’s Apollo dataset. The goal: apply computer vision [...]

Overcoming transistor miniaturization limits due to ‘quantum tunneling’

8 Červen, 2018 - 02:32
A team of researchers at Columbia Engineering and associates* have synthesized a molecule that could overcome a major physical limit to miniaturizing computer transistors at the nanometer scale (under about 3 nanometers) — caused by “leakage current.” Leakage current between two metal transistor electrodes results when the gap between the electrodes narrows to the point [...]

Ultrasound-powered nanorobots clear bacteria and toxins from blood

5 Červen, 2018 - 23:53
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed tiny ultrasound-powered nanorobots that can swim through blood, removing harmful bacteria and the toxins they produce. These proof-of-concept nanorobots could one day offer a safe and efficient way to detoxify and decontaminate biological threat agents — providing an fast alternative to the multiple, broad-spectrum antibiotics currently used to [...]

Artificial sensory neurons may give future prosthetic devices and robots a subtle sense of touch

1 Červen, 2018 - 23:12
Researchers at Stanford University and Seoul National University have developed an artificial sensory nerve system that’s a step toward artificial skin for prosthetic limbs, restoring sensation to amputees, and giving robots human-like reflexes.* Their rudimentary artificial nerve circuit integrates three previously developed components: a touch-pressure sensor, a flexible electronic neuron, and an artificial synaptic transistor modeled [...]

New noninvasive technique could be alternative to laser eye surgery

1 Červen, 2018 - 02:07
Columbia Engineering researcher Sinisa Vukelic, Ph.D., has developed a new non-invasive approach for permanently correcting myopia (nearsightedness), replacing glasses and invasive corneal refractive surgery.* The non-surgical method uses a “femtosecond oscillator” — an ultrafast laser that delivers pulses of very low energy at high repetition rate to modify the tissue’s shape. The method has fewer side effects [...]
