Resonance as a Design Strategy for AI and Social Robots


Resonance, a powerful and pervasive phenomenon, appears to play a major role in human interactions. This article investigates the relationship between the physical mechanism of resonance and the human experience of resonance, and considers possibilities for enhancing the experience of resonance within human–robot interactions. We first introduce resonance as a widespread cultural and scientific metaphor. Then, we review the nature of “sympathetic resonance” as a physical mechanism. Following this introduction, the remainder of the article is organized in two parts. In part one, we review the role of resonance (including synchronization and rhythmic entrainment) in human cognition and social interactions. Then, in part two, we review resonance-related phenomena in robotics and artificial intelligence (AI). These two reviews serve as ground for the introduction of a design strategy and combinatorial design space for shaping resonant interactions with robots and AI. We conclude by posing hypotheses and research questions for future empirical studies and discuss a range of ethical and aesthetic issues associated with resonance in human–robot interactions.

Challenges of Artificial Intelligence -- From Machine Learning and Computer Vision to Emotional Intelligence Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become a part of everyday conversation and our lives. It is considered as the new electricity that is revolutionizing the world. AI is heavily invested in both industry and academy. However, there is also a lot of hype in the current AI debate. AI based on so-called deep learning has achieved impressive results in many problems, but its limits are already visible. AI has been under research since the 1940s, and the industry has seen many ups and downs due to over-expectations and related disappointments that have followed. The purpose of this book is to give a realistic picture of AI, its history, its potential and limitations. We believe that AI is a helper, not a ruler of humans. We begin by describing what AI is and how it has evolved over the decades. After fundamentals, we explain the importance of massive data for the current mainstream of artificial intelligence. The most common representations for AI, methods, and machine learning are covered. In addition, the main application areas are introduced. Computer vision has been central to the development of AI. The book provides a general introduction to computer vision, and includes an exposure to the results and applications of our own research. Emotions are central to human intelligence, but little use has been made in AI. We present the basics of emotional intelligence and our own research on the topic. We discuss super-intelligence that transcends human understanding, explaining why such achievement seems impossible on the basis of present knowledge,and how AI could be improved. Finally, a summary is made of the current state of AI and what to do in the future. In the appendix, we look at the development of AI education, especially from the perspective of contents at our own university.

Try to get your own cutie portrait using MMGEN-FaceStylor


We attach the github link below at the beginning of the article. When you are watching cartoon movies or comic books, have you ever wondered about your figure in the anime world? Now, getting your own cartoon image can be realized through deep learning technology. OpenMMLab has opened source a face stylization project: MMGEN-FaceStylor,which can not only change the characters into images of various styles, but also controls the stylization intensity. If you are not satisfied with the style provided and want to use your own data for training, we also provide a complete model training code.

What is Scientific AI?


While chatbots and self-driving cars are some of the most widely recognised applications for artificial intelligence (AI), machine-learning technologies have made a decisive mark in the scientific world. Read on to discover more about scientific AI and the implications it has on everything from genomics to drug development. Technological advances have allowed scientists and researchers to unlock extraordinary amounts of data. Though without enough processing power, this data is meaningless. This is where artificial intelligence steps up.

Music Genre Classification using Deep Learning (Audio and Video)


If someday, we all go to prison for downloading music, I hope they separate us by genres. Automatic music classification is an area of research that has been receiving a great deal of attention lately. With the breadth of artists and songs being released in current times, it has become increasingly difficult to manually classify music genres. There are very rarely precise, clear, and consistent heuristics delineating the musical qualities and characteristics of each genre. The task of defining and implementing measures of musical similarity can be extremely challenging, especially for a human.

Artificial Intelligence Projects with Python


In this course, we aim to specialize in artificial intelligence by working on 14 Machine Learning Projects and Deep Learning Projects at various levels (easy - medium - hard). Before starting the course, you should have basic Python knowledge. Our aim in this course is to turn real-life problems that seem difficult to do into projects and then solve them using latest versions of artificial intelligence algorithms (machine learning algortihms and deep learning algorithms) and Python(3.8). This course was prepared in August 2021. We will carry out some of our projects using machine learning and some using deep learning algorithms.

When Creators Meet the Metaverse: A Survey on Computational Arts Artificial Intelligence

The metaverse, enormous virtual-physical cyberspace, has brought unprecedented opportunities for artists to blend every corner of our physical surroundings with digital creativity. This article conducts a comprehensive survey on computational arts, in which seven critical topics are relevant to the metaverse, describing novel artworks in blended virtual-physical realities. The topics first cover the building elements for the metaverse, e.g., virtual scenes and characters, auditory, textual elements. Next, several remarkable types of novel creations in the expanded horizons of metaverse cyberspace have been reflected, such as immersive arts, robotic arts, and other user-centric approaches fuelling contemporary creative outputs. Finally, we propose several research agendas: democratising computational arts, digital privacy, and safety for metaverse artists, ownership recognition for digital artworks, technological challenges, and so on. The survey also serves as introductory material for artists and metaverse technologists to begin creations in the realm of surrealistic cyberspace.
