Self-driving cars to race for $1.5 million at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

#artificialintelligence

One factor that could prevent a similar outcome in the upcoming race is the ability to test-run cars on a virtual racetrack. The simulation software company Ansys Inc. has already developed a model of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on which teams will test their algorithms as part of a series of qualifying rounds. "We can create, with physics, multiple real-life scenarios that are reflective of the real world," Ansys President Ajei Gopal told The Wall Street Journal. "We can use that to train the AI, so it starts to come up to speed." Still, the race could reveal that self-driving cars aren't quite ready to race at speeds of over 110 mph.


A beginner's guide to AI: The difference between video game AI and real AI

#artificialintelligence

This multi-part feature should provide you with a very basic understanding of what AI is, what it can do, and how it works. The guide contains articles on (in order published) neural networks, computer vision, natural language processing, algorithms, and artificial general intelligence. Among the most common misconceptions surrounding machine learning technology is the idea that video games dating back to the 1970s and 1980s had built-in "artificial intelligence" capable of interacting with a human user. If you're curious but in a hurry, video game "AI," in the traditional sense, is not what people refer to in the modern era when they're talking about artificial intelligence. The "bots" in an online multiplayer game, the enemies in a first-person-shooter, and the CPU-controlled characters in old-school Nintendo games are not examples of artificial intelligence, they're just clever programming tricks.


10 Under-the-Radar Movies that Show the Power of Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

I love the sci-fi movie genre. Futuristic scenarios, jaw-dropping visuals, a tight storyline knitting it all together – that's a recipe for a box office hit. Anyone who grew up in the 80s and 90s will be intimately familiar with the Terminator franchise. And once I moved into the machine learning space, my appreciation and interest in these movies grew multifold! What we once thought of as unrealistic scenarios are now playing out in the real world.


Artificial Intelligence, Enough of the hype! What is it?

#artificialintelligence

There is a lot of hype around Artificial Intelligence (AI) and as I mentioned in my last blog there is weak and strong AI. Personally I prefer the term narrow instead of weak for AI as the AI we have today is focused on narrow or very specific tasks. AI in of itself is a large field and the best way of getting to understand AI is to get a grounding in the basics. I like to think of AI as being an onion, as it has layers of depth starting on the outside with AI and with Deep Learning at the centre. Don't worry I will explain what these terms mean in a little bit.


Is Fine Art the Next Frontier of AI?

#artificialintelligence

In 1950, Alan Turing developed the Turing Test as a test of a machine's ability to display human-like intelligent behavior. "Are there imaginable digital computers which would do well in the imitation game?" In most applications of AI, a model is created to imitate the judgment of humans and implement it at scale, be it autonomous vehicles, text summarization, image recognition, or product recommendation. By the nature of imitation, a computer is only able to replicate what humans have done, based on previous data. This doesn't leave room for genuine creativity, which relies on innovation, not imitation.

A beginner's guide to the best porn games: What to play and what you should know

Mashable

August 8 is International Female Orgasm Day, and we're celebrating with an entire week dedicated to exploring the business and pleasure of porn. Porn video games come with a lot of stigma, and understandably so. But if you push through all that, you'll find there actually are some really good, very NSFW adult games out there. It won't surprise you that many of the most popular adult games share similar issues to regular mainstream Tube porn - aggressive heternormativity and a near-exclusive catering to a cis, male gaze. Still, the world of adult sex games is far more expansive, diverse, and varied than people think. And, finding the right erotic game for you can help open you up to new aspects of your sexuality you'd never thought about before.


AI and ML: Are they one and the same?

#artificialintelligence

As children we believed in magic, imagined, and a fantasy where robots would one day follow our commands, undertaking our most meager tasks and even help with our homework at the push of a button! But sadly it always seemed that these beliefs, along with the idea of self-driven aero cars and jetpacks, belonged in a future beyond our imagination or in a Hollywood Sci-fi. Would we ever get to experience the future in our lifetime? Artificial Intelligence, aka AI, made its debut in real life and became the buzz word of the 21st century, providing us with new ideas to explore and incredible possibilities. And just as we were getting used to AI we were introduced to Futuristic Learning, Deep Learning, and another term we often confuse with AI: Machine Learning (ML).


7 Popular AI Projects On Gesture Gaming One Must Know

#artificialintelligence

AI has made several breakthroughs when it comes to implementation into games. The functionalities of AI in video games include various domains such as real-time facial emotion recognition, automated difficulty adaptation, sentiment analysis, non-verbal bodily motion, lip-synchronised speech and more. This technique has been used in games to enhance graphical realism, to generate levels, sceneries and storylines, to establish player profiles, balance complexity or to add intelligent behaviours to non-playing characters. In this article, we list down the seven popular AI projects that work on gesture gaming. About: This project will help you understand how to use TensorFlow object detection API with the computer's webcam to play a snake game by using hand gestures.
