AI that has the ability to learn like a child

eLearningworld News Artificial intelligence is not at all smart. As a matter of fact, a three-month-baby is much smarter than any AI-system, which is something that researchers at MIT have acknowledged. The team has started exploring the fundamentals of human intelligence with the aim to in the first step “reverse-engineer human intelligence” and in then in the longer term build a machine that learns like a baby, and in the next step a child. To… Continue reading

Robots are taking over, human labour lost … or not

A new report from Oxford University and Yale University shows that it is 50% chance that AI will outperform humans on all tasks within 45 years and of automating all human jobs in 120 years. This is the conclusion of a worldwide survey with machine learning researchers as respondents. Within the next ten years AI will be better in tasks like translating languages (by 2024), writing high-school essays (by 2026), driving a truck (by 2027),… Continue reading

The mother of Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, has been reborn as AI

eLearningworld Newz Artificial Intelligence often in movies represents the evil force in the story. In this spirit researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab has developed Shelley AI that writes its own scary stories and continues stories that already have been started. The Shelley AI is named after one of the most famous author’s of horror stories, Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley, that wrote “Frankenstein” that was first published 1818. Shelley AI is producing… Continue reading

Future ICT Challenges at CERN – the birthplace of the Web

eLearningworld News 26 years ago, August 1991, the world wide web was first published to the general public on the internet, as the result of a research project at the European Science Institute, CERN. Never a launch have been that successful, during the first 1000 days 100 000 users produced 450 000 websites with totally 150 million web pages that was visited by 30 million people around the world. This invention also is one of… Continue reading

The benefits of using Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education

Catherine Solazzo, vice president of developer engagement for IBM Digital Business Group, points out two areas where AI will develop higher education: “To impart learners with skills that will help them succeed in the new world of AI; and for use by administrators to leverage that technology and understand how students learn, to then create a more personalized experience for them.” Solazzo will be one of the speakers at the EdTech Engage conference, October 5-6… Continue reading

eHealth: Artificial Intelligence to support diagnosis of treatment

eLearningworld News Research from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) shows promising results in exploring ways for AI to help doctors make better medical decisions. The machine learning approach is based on large amounts of data from 40 000 patients of intensive-care-units (ICU). This means analytics from past ICU cases where the data comes from practice, labs, notes and demographics aiming to support real-time diagnosis of different symptoms to improve treatments. Harini Suresh,… Continue reading

Pros and cons of Artificial Intelligence

eLearningworld News As artificial intelligence is making its way into society, research on the consequences of the development is lagging behind. The German Minister of Research, Johanna Wanka, said: “Artificial intelligence can improve our lives if we use it properly. But for this, we need to know what we can benefit from the systems and what the weaknesses are. There are still many unanswered research questions why we need comprehensive research more than ever to… Continue reading

Artificial Intelligence uses intuition to win Poker Games against professional players

A research team from University of Alberta, Canada and Charles University and Czech Technical University have developed a poker bot called DeepStack that have defeated several professional human players in one-on-one games of no-limit Texas hold’em poker. The research team writes about their invention: ”It combines recursive reasoning to handle information asymmetry, decomposition to focus computation on the relevant decision, and a form of intuition about arbitrary poker situations that is automatically learned from selfplay… Continue reading

Latest News: Artificial Intelligence learns to visualize the world in 3D

eLearningworld News from US Cognitive science research indicates that humans use a form of the three-dimensional model to perceive and take action in the close environment. Now researchers at MIT are using this approach to improve artificial intelligence’s ability to interact in the real world. According to professor Josh Tenenbaum, at MIT’s Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, AI 3D-visualisation will have immense impact for the development of robots, he explains: “This is definitely something… Continue reading

Latest News: Development of Artificial Intelligence takes advantage of Human Learning research

eLearningworld News from US One of the most acknowledged theories about human learning was first published in 1995 and it states that learning is the product of two complementary learning systems. The theory is developed from David Marr, a British computational neuroscientist, research and it claims that the first system gradually acquires knowledge and skills from exposure to experiences, while the second stores specific experiences for effective integration into the first system. The second system… Continue reading
