The Three Breakthroughs That Have Finally Unleashed AI on the World

#artificialintelligence

A few months ago I made the trek to the sylvan campus of the IBM research labs in Yorktown Heights, New York, to catch an early glimpse of the fast-arriving, long-overdue future of artificial intelligence. This was the home of Watson, the electronic genius that conquered Jeopardy! in 2011. The original Watson is still here--it's about the size of a bedroom, with 10 upright, refrigerator-shaped machines forming the four walls. The tiny interior cavity gives technicians access to the jumble of wires and cables on the machines' backs. It is surprisingly warm inside, as if the cluster were alive. Today's Watson is very different. It no longer exists solely within a wall of cabinets but is spread across a cloud of open-standard servers that run several hundred "instances" of the AI at once. Like all things cloudy, Watson is served to simultaneous customers anywhere in the world, who can access it using their phones, their desktops, or their own data servers.

FIDE CM Kingscrusher goes over amazing games of Chess every day, with a focus recently on games of Neural Networks which are opening up new concepts for how chess could be played more effectively. It is developed by Belgian programmer Gian-Carlo Pascutto,[1][2][3] the author of chess engine Sjeng and Go engine Leela.[4][5] Unlike the original Leela, which has a lot of human knowledge and heuristics programmed into it, Leela Zero only knows the basic rules and nothing more.[7] Leela Zero is trained by a distributed effort, which is coordinated at the Leela Zero website. Members of the community provide computing resources by running the client, which generates self-play games and submits them to the server.


Surprise: AI In 2019

#artificialintelligence

A long time ago in an innovation ecosystem far, far away… a recent MIT graduate started his career in a vintage 1970's Massachusetts Route 128 Artificial Intelligence (AI) startup doing speech recognition, re-named Verbex after Exxon acquired the company. Fast forward to AI in 2019, and what stands out most to that grad (me) are two pleasant surprises. The first surprise is the degree to which highly competitive IT businesses have embraced open source AI. Google's TensorFlow has over 120,000 stars on GitHub, which the largest home of open source code communities, and Microsoft acquired GitHub in 2018. Facebook's PyTorch is also quite popular, especially in academic and industrial research communities, with over 25,000 stars on GitHub.
