Quantifying Human Consciousness With the Help of AI - Neuroscience News

#artificialintelligence

Summary: A new deep learning algorithm is able to quantify arousal and awareness in humans at the same time. New research supported by the EU-funded HBP SGA3 and DoCMA projects is giving scientists new insight into human consciousness. Led by Korea University and projects' partner University of Liège (Belgium), the research team has developed an explainable consciousness indicator (ECI) to explore different components of consciousness. Their findings were published in the journal Nature Communications. Consciousness can be described as having two components: arousal (i.e.


The Science of Mind Reading

The New Yorker

One night in October, 2009, a young man lay in an fMRI scanner in Liège, Belgium. Five years earlier, he'd suffered a head trauma in a motorcycle accident, and since then he hadn't spoken. He was said to be in a "vegetative state." A neuroscientist named Martin Monti sat in the next room, along with a few other researchers. For years, Monti and his postdoctoral adviser, Adrian Owen, had been studying vegetative patients, and they had developed two controversial hypotheses.


Artificial Intelligence and Antitrust Activity Subscribe

#artificialintelligence

In a recently published paper, a pair of academics propose that the application of artificial intelligence can offer a potent weapon against antitrust behavior in the Big Tech sector. This is the very industry that has advanced this technology, noted one of those academics, Giovana Massarotto, a Center for Technology, Innovation and Competition academic fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School and an adjunct professor at the University of Iowa. She underscored this fact in an article for Bloomberg Law, in which she maintains that "the present economic democracy propaganda against Big Tech is not the solution to increase competition in fast-moving technology markets." In fact, she says, the industry's ingenuity is needed to achieve our nation's pro-competition goals. Massarotto and University of Liege (Belgium) Associate Professor Ashwin Ittoo write about their "antitrust machine learning application" (AML) which shows the potential for AI to "assist antitrust agencies in detecting anticompetitive practices faster."

Cytomine: Free Open source Web-based Digital Pathology (WSI) solution with Machine learning flavor

#artificialintelligence

Cytomine is a web-based open source solution, aiming to empower whole-slide image processing, & analysis with machine learning algorithms. It's built to ease collaboration among researchers. Cytomine is built by a group of researchers from Montefiore Institute (University of Liège, Belgium) who are developing machine learning algorithms and big data software modules aiming to provide an open-source solution for processing very large imaging data. Unlike Orbit which we introduced in this article, Cytomine is considered lightweight, web-based, easy to install, & does not require heavy-duty hardware requirements like an orbit. It can be installed on a web server, a laptop or a desktop.



AI robot attends college, including a course about love Light On Conspiracies - Revealing the Agenda

#artificialintelligence

BINA48, a robot owned by lawyer, author, and entrepreneur Martine Aliana Rothblatt's Terrasem Movement Foundation (TMF) is living the life of any normal college student in America: She attends classes at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California, and every once in a while gets excused from those classes when she needs to get a facelift at Hanson Robotics. She also got excused from class that one time she was invited to ring the bell at the stock exchange, so her schedule isn't exactly like other students'. BINA48, who looks like a live flesh-and-blood woman, at least from the head to the shoulders, is now pursuing a rather interesting subject at the university, given that she is a work of artificial intelligence (AI): a Philosophy of Love course. For a final project, she and a human student presented philosophical perspectives on love, showing the world that a robot can have thoughts and views on the subject. As of the fall of 2017, BINA48 became the first robot to complete a college class.

A robot called Bina48 has successfully taken a course in the philosophy of love at Notre Dame de Namur University, in California.


A creepy robot head completes university course in the philosophy of love

#artificialintelligence

A person's university years should be all about expanding your horizons, as well as meeting people with perspectives and backgrounds different from your own. Well, what could be more different than sharing your classroom with a robot? That's what 31 philosophy students at Notre Dame de Namur University in California recently experienced when they were joined in their "Philosophy of Love" program by Bina48, an A.I. animatronic robot. The robot participated via Skype in a series of sessions before appearing "in person" in the final class.
