Artificial intelligence will change the world in the coming decades. Improved humans or brains transfered to an USB could be a fact in the future
Neural networks are the crown jewel of the AI boom. They gorge on data and do things like transcribe speech or describe images with near-perfect accuracy (see “10 breakthrough technologies 2013: Deep learning”). The catch is that neural nets, which are modeled loosely on the structure of the human brain, are typically constructed in software…
The European funded City4Age project aims to make cities more age-friendly. It will create innovative ICT tools and services for early detection of risks related to frailty and of Mild Cognitive Impairments (MCI). The services will be tested in several European cities, as well as in Singapore.
GoogleDeepMind has built a virtual 3D laboratory called Psychlab that will let machines take tests designed to probe human mental faculties, and they’ve open-sourced it so any AI researcher can put their algorithms through their paces.
