Biological brains are unlikely to be the final stage of intelligence. Machines already have superhuman strength, speed and stamina – and one day they will have superhuman intelligence. This is of course not certain to occur – it is possible that we will develop some other dangerous technology first ...
h+ Magazine Redefining the Coming Singularity – It's not what you think h+ Magazine Hays and I believed that these four ages, the systematic differences between cultures at these four levels of cultural evolution, are based on differences in...
Harnessing this AI technology still requires a certain expertise---that's why the giants of the web are buying up all the talent---and thanks to their massive data centers and deep pockets, the Googles of the world can take this technology to...
Ello is the anti-facebook, positioning itself as a network with a social conscience. It might not be the one to replace the social giant, but Facebook is getting old Predicting the end of Facebook in 2014 feels reckless.
"Ello is absolutely defiant in its stance – you will not be commodified, you will not be managed...."
Baidu chief scientist Andrew Ng says the shift to speech and image search makes artificial intelligence---and other software techniques related to robotics---strategic to Internet companies for the future.
Replacing silicon, new ultra-fast “phase-change materials” (PCMs) that could eventually enable processing speeds 500 to 1,000 times faster than the average laptop computer today — while using less energy — have been modeled and tested by researchers from the University of Cambridge, the Singapore A*STAR Data-Storage Institute, and the Singapore University of Technology and Design.

It's a question that's perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: Where does consciousness come from? Neuroscientist Christof Koch, chief scientific officer at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, thinks he has an answer.
Computer Vision Google has explained their new award-wining image detection system that can identify multiple objects in a scene, even if they're partly obscured. The key is a neural network... [[ This is a content summary only.
Baidu says its 100-billion-neuron deep learning system will be complete within six months, powering a fast transition away from text as the dominant search input. Thanks to smartphones and its new Baidu Eye technology, the company expects voice and image search to dominate within five years.
Looks like a very impressive commitment to deep learning and further integration of AI into our daily lives.
