This book is dedicated to all who reach beyond the boundaries of their own existence to seek innovation solely for the benefit of those they will never meet, in worlds they will never occupy and in the hope of peace and tranquility they will never experience until they pass from this life.

Useful Python Libraries for Machine Learning


The concept of machine learning is a development in the field of artificial intelligence. Many field experts say that artificial intelligence is the future for mankind because it can help in many ways. The term machine learning comes from the 1950s which was introduced by the most famous mathematician, namely Alan Turing. He was the inventor of the first digital computer. His contribution and that of other computer scientists are highly appreciated by the world because of his enormous contribution to the world of technology.

Scientists Use Robot to Understand Ant Communication


A team of scientists at the University of Bristol has developed a small robot that helps them understand how ants teach one another. The robot was built to mimic the behavior of rock ants, which rely on one-to-one tuition.

Writing Lyrics with AI


To build our lyric-generating pipeline, we'll be using: - A service to grab data for existing lyrics. API. - GPT-2: A transformer-based NLP model, trained on 8 million web pages. We'll need to set up our environment and install a two pip packages: GPT-2 has an excellent knowledge of English out-of-the-box; but we want our lyrics to be stylized and poetic. To do this, we need to show it some lyrics for inspiration.

Science 101: Artificial Intelligence


Artificial intelligence (AI) is the collective term for computer technologies and techniques that help solve complex problems by imitating the brain's ability to learn. AI helps computers recognize patterns hidden within a lot of information, solve problems and adjust to changes in processes as they happen, much faster than humans can. Researchers use AI to be better and faster at tackling the most difficult problems in science, medicine and technology, and help drive discovery in those areas. This could range from helping us understand how COVID-19 attacks the human body to finding ways to manage traffic jams. Many Department of Energy (DOE) facilities, like Argonne National Laboratory, assist in developing some the most advanced AI technologies available.

Artificial intelligence can now make convincing images of buildings


There is a new craze in town. Recently, designers have been typing prompts into a diffusion-based artificial intelligence (AI) platform and waiting for images of never-before-seen buildings, logos, products, and more to materialize within seconds. Platforms like Midjourney are built on data sets of billions of existing images scraped from the web. In this vast library, you will find pictures of buildings, birds, balloons, and beaks, so if a building in the shape of a bird with a beak made of balloons is something you are looking for, type it in and Midjourney will deliver. In less than a month of using AI, I have created 11,515 images.

Dodge just invented a nostalgic new 'vroom' sound for electric cars


As the American carmaker Dodge slowly lowers the curtain on its current Charger and Challenger models over the next few years in favor of EV sports cars, the company is sacrificing some of the products most famous for producing big, dad-pleasing "vroom-vroom" sounds. But Dodge's latest concept vehicle, which rolled onto a stage Wednesday during a presentation by Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis, might just be the solution to that problem. Every 21st-century kindergartener knows what sounds phones, clocks, and cars make: "None, none, and none." The tech world has eliminated many machine noises, for better or worse. In some cases, this is actually a safety problem.

Kathleen Creel: Examining Ethical Questions in AI


It's safe to say that Plato and his contemporaries never grappled with moral questions raised by the development of neural networks or issues surrounding data privacy and security. But a few modern philosophers – like Kathleen Creel – are doing just that as they harness age-old ideas about knowledge, existence, and ethics to understand and respond to the challenges posed by today's technology. "I still get a lot from Plato and other historical philosophers, but the task of philosophy is to figure out what the questions of a particular age, of a particular society or culture are, and to ask how philosophy can help to address them," Creel says. "It gives us a clearer moral system to help sort through what our priorities ought to be, and how we should act in our lives." Creel is finishing a two-year Embedded EthiCS Postdoctoral Fellowship based at Stanford's McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society and the Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI).
