"Cognitive science is the interdisciplinary study of mind and intelligence, embracing philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, linguistics, and anthropology. Its intellectual origins are in the mid-1950s when researchers in several fields began to develop theories of mind based on complex representations and computational procedures."
– Paul Thagard. Cognitive Science , in The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
What would an adventure game designed by the worlds most dangerous A.I. look like? A neuroscience grad student is here to help you find out. Earlier this year, OpenAI, an A.I. startup once sponsored by Elon Musk, created a text-generating bot deemed too dangerous to ever release to the public. Called GPT-2, the algorithm was designed to generate text so humanlike that it could convincingly pass itself off as being written by a person. Feed it the start of a newspaper article, for instance, and it would dream up the rest, complete with imagined quotes.
The ability of the computer program to imitate the human intelligence needed for the task is termed as artificial intelligence (AI). Integration of the artificial intelligence in education sector creates revolution through its result driven approach. The applications in solving the issues such as language processing, reasoning, planning, and cognitive modeling increases the demand for the AI in the education sector. In another learning approach, AI can help organize and synthesize content to support content delivery. The Research Insights has added a new report to its source.
Artificial Intelligence is a topic that has been getting a lot of attention, mostly because of the rapid improvement that this field has seen since the turn of the 21st century. Amazing innovations are laying the foundation for ongoing breakthrough achievements. In this article, I'm going to focus on three specific topics: In the 1950s, AI pioneers Minsky and McCarthy described artificial intelligence as any task performed by a program or a machine that, was it performed by a human, would have required that human to apply intelligence to accomplish the task. This is a fairly broad description. Nowadays, all tasks associated with human intelligence are described as AI when performed by a computer.
One of the hot topics at SXSW this year is Artificial Intelligence and its impact on humans, society and work. Deep learning evolved so fast the past year that there are numerous new applications and tools arising that benefit from and use this new technology. In the panel discussion, 'AI the future of storytelling, 'AI the future of storytelling', industry leaders discussed their take on the topic. One of the most interesting stories around AI is the Portrait of Edmond Belamy, which was recently sold at Christie's for 432,000 dollars. The painting, however, is not the product of a human painter.
We've seen people turn neural networks to almost everything from drafting pickup lines to a new Harry Potter chapter, but it turns out classic text adventure games may be one of the best fits for AI yet. This latest glimpse into what artificial intelligence can do was created by a neuroscience student named Nathan. Nathan trained GPT-2, a neural net designed to create predictive text, on classic PC text adventure games. Inspired by the Mind Game in Ender's Game, his goal was to create a game that would react to the player. Since he uploaded the resulting game to a Google Colab notebook, people like research scientist Janelle Shane have had fun seeing what a text adventure created by an AI looks like.
The benefits of teaching a child a foreign language are truly increíble! Studies show that children who are exposed to a second language have increased cognitive ability, greater social flexibility, improved listening skills, higher memory retention, and improved problem-solving skills. There is no doubt that raising a child to be bilingual is muy bien and will have lasting benefits. Pair one of the best tablets for kids with any of our 10 favorite apps and websites to help your niños y niñas learn español. StudyCat teaches Spanish through games.
AI is showing so much promise in the medical field. It's an excellent example of how AI combines with human intelligence to create a "super brain" capable of predicting disease, uncovering patterns, and testing solutions for persistent problems. Precision Medicine is a medical nonprofit using this super combination of AI and human expertise to find solutions to one of the most devastating diseases we know, Alzheimer's. Ayin Vala, co-founder and someone who lost his own grandfather to this illness, outlines Precision Medicine's work. There are no treatments to prevent the disease and no cure.
With so many articles being written about future technologies and the new types of jobs they are likely to bring about, you may have found yourself pondering about how one may be able to get into such careers. After all, we tell ourselves, if someone needs to be first, why not me? And therein lies the issue: there isn't really a path to jobs that don't yet exist. There are no courses, no job descriptions, no current employee or HR representative one might question. We're on our own, as we've so often been.
