The Simple Genetic Algorithm: Foundations and Theory (Complex Adaptive Systems) [Michael D. Vose] on Amazon.com. *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. The Simple Genetic Algorithm (SGA) is a classical form of genetic search.
Drawing on the work of a clever cadre of academic researchers, the biggest names in tech—including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple—are embracing a more powerful form of AI known as “deep learning,” using it to improve everything from speech recognition and language translation to computer vision, the ability to identify images without human help.
Michael Tomasello argues that the roots of the human capacity for symbol-based culture, and the kind of psychological development that takes place within it, are based in a cluster of uniquely human cognitive capacities that emerge early in human...
The 'Internet Of Things' Will Soon Be A Truly Huge Market, Dwarfing All Other ... Business Insider That's roughly equal to the number of smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, wearable computers, and PCs combined.
Another paper by Shaun this time coauthored with Jan Slaby (check out Jan’s website – lot’s of good stuff here). The concept of a socially extended mind suggests that our cognitive processes are extended not simply by the various tools and technologies...
Researchers from MIT’s Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems have developed an algorithm in which distributed agents — such as robots exploring a building — collect data and analyze it independently. Pairs of agents, such as robots passing each other in the hall, then exchange analyses.
In experiments involving several different data sets, the researchers’ distributed algorithm actually outperformed a standard algorithm that works on data aggregated at a single location, as described in an arXiv paper.
Importantly, Laloux notes that these practices have to align with an organizational culture that trusts in the capacity and appropriateness of self-organization and bringing more of our selves to work.
Philosopher Nick Bostrom's famous Simulation Argument suggests it's highly probable that we live inside a supercomputer. But one philosopher takes this hypothesis to task, arguing in a new paper that there are other post-human scenarios that need to be taken into account.
Much problem solving and learning occurs in social situations, and social relations afford and facilitate these processes in many ways. However, previous research has mostly neglected to consider metacognition from the social point of view.
