Tiny machine learning design alleviates a bottleneck in memory usage on internet-of-things devices

Machine learning provides powerful tools to researchers to identify and predict patterns and behaviours, as well as learn, optimize, and perform tasks. This ranges from applications like vision systems on autonomous vehicles or social robots to smart thermostats to wearable and mobile devices like smartwatches and apps that can monitor …

The Next Advance In Augmented Reality Will Put Powerful Tools In Consumers’ Hands

AR has arrived, in fits and starts. Ikea has an app that lets you see, on your phone, what a piece of furniture would look like in your home. Splunk has an app that helps field workers repair industrial systems, accessing performance metrics and repair information. And somewhere, right now, …

Artificial Intelligence is learning Social Interaction Skills

AI models of language work great at specific tasks. One example is predicting the next word when you are typing a text. However, the new generation of artificial intelligence is learning the more underlying meaning of the language, which is put in practice e.g. results in question answering, document summarization, …

Innovation Clusters to shape the future

The future cluster initiative was announced in 2019 by the German Government as an open-topic competition under the motto “Clusters4Future”. It was the new flagship of the high-tech strategy 2025. Now in October, the first seven innovation clusters in Clusters4Future are starting the implementation phase. Federal Research Minister Anja Karliczek …

Limits of Artificial Intelligence and beyond the borders

Understanding human language is one of the keys to expanding the limits of  Artificial Intelligence beyond today’s development level. This is the conclusion in the book In Linguistics for the Age of AI by Marjorie McShane and Sergei Nirenburg, both at the Department of Cognitive Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. …

Eye-tracking technology – A problem-solver

The areas of use are many for eye-tracking technology, besides the augmented experience in games and other interactive applications, and the practical improvement of different human behavioural diagnoses like to discover dyslexia, assistive communication, market research, AR/VR, security system in vehicles, and research, etc. With Apple, Google, Tobii, Smarteye, and …

Next generation Artificial Intelligence and ethics

What is the next generation artificial intelligence? What about its learning abilities? And ethics that surround it? Josh Tenenbaum, at the Computational Cognitive Science lab at MIT, describing to MIT Technology Review that the next generation Artificial Intelligence will have a stronger connection to cognitive science and neuroscience. Professor Tenenbaum …
