This summer, Dartmouth College's Neukom Institute for Computational Science held its annual Turing Tests in the Creative Arts. A system developed by Thomson Reuters Research Scientist Charese Smiley and Senior Software Engineer Hiroko Bretz took first prize in the poetry contest by creating a sonnet that judges thought most likely to be written by a human. Below is the sonnet created by Charese Smiley and Hiroko Bretz's software system: And be very careful crossing the streets. Our Cognitive Computing Center of Excellence focuses on exploring the rapidly developing field of cognitive computing and machine intelligence.


Creative machines: How close are we to AI-generated content marketing?

#artificialintelligence

In this article we'll look at what it would take for an artificial intelligence to generate truly creative content marketing, and how close we are to living in a world with AI content marketers. For the purposes of this article, let's keep this restricted to a typical content marketing campaign that involves idea generation and content production in the forms of a video, some text-based articles with accompanying images, and social media promotion. News outlets can depend on AI to write accurate stories on events, but AI has also developed the ability to produce creative work through the usage of neural networks. Similar experiments have been undertaken to see how well an artificial intelligence system can understand the structure of literary works.


Disney's facial recognition AI watches you watch movies

For the experiments, the research team set up four infrared cameras in a 400-seat theater, where is applied the FVAEs to 150 showings of mainstream movies. The FVAEs are searching for audience members who exhibit similar facial expressions throughout the movie to learn about the stereotypical reaction to a film, much like how online shopping companies recommend items for purchase.

We Know How 'Valerian' Got Made--But Not Why It Failed

WIRED

This is a not-so-secret secret of print magazine features: The lead time of monthly magazines like WIRED means that the journalism is often done before the film. So I wrote a story more about Besson and the weirdness of international film financing. Valerian's Biggest PR Problem: It Did Everything First Luc Besson's Valerian Is Exactly What Hollywood Needs Right Now And I think the answer is: kind of. As for the former, well, maybe the cable viewing audience of 2037 will be able to answer that with a click.


Google's Creatism AI creates stunning images of landscapes

#artificialintelligence

Well, nothing draws attention and creates engagement like "fake news". The cost to society of letting a few fake news articles to get published (false positive) greatly outweighs the potential costs of blocking potentially valid news (false negatives). See my blog "Understanding Type I and Type II Errors" to learn more about the potential costs and liabilities associated with Type I and Type II errors. And companies like McAfee and Symantec employee machine learning to catch viruses (see article "Malware Detection with Machine Learning Methods".)


Who will die next on Game of Thrones? This machine learning network can predict character deaths

#artificialintelligence

And, the anxiety over the next major character deaths is sweeping across the fan base. While the internet is flooding with fan theories, a researcher has developed a machine learning-powered network to predict possible deaths in the highly popular and bloody series. Milan Janosov, a PhD candidate at the Central European University, built a sort of social network of major GoT characters to come up with a ranking system of probable character deaths. Spoiler alert: Here's the list of predicted deaths "The list tells us many interesting things.

Game Of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen, 'Mother Of Dragons', May Die Soon

International Business Times

Master sword fighter Syrio Forel's wisecrack in the first season of popular TV series, "Game of Thrones," made Miltos Yerolemou's short role -- as Arya Stark's sword instructor -- in the show memorable. We also know which of the characters have already died (61 of them)," the analysis published by Central European University's Center for Network Science (CNS) says. According to CNS, network science is fast emerging as a scientific discipline that examines network links encountered every day as it explains the effect of these interconnections at a larger scale. Audience's love for Jon Snow -- played by Kit Harington -- probably prompted the show makers to revive the character after he was killed by his own men at the Night's Watch.


All Great Artists Share This One Quality--Can AI Learn It Too?

#artificialintelligence

Luckily for us humans, though, McAfee offers a second, more profound definition of creativity: understanding the human condition, illuminating it, and reflecting it back to us in a way that we respond to. But besides wondering whether AI will ever be able to understand the human condition and reflect it back to us in a meaningful way, shouldn't we also be wondering why--or, better yet, whether--we want it to be able to? If this best-case scenario proves true and we end up with lots of time on our hands to create whatever our hearts desire, it seems like giving AI an understanding of the human condition would just be one more way to render ourselves obsolete--and in the process, relinquish the final quality that differentiates us from machines and makes us human. Instead of asking whether AI can learn the one quality that makes humans creative, then, the more pertinent question is: should we let it?
