'Deep learning' AI should be able to explain its automated decision-making—but it can't. And even its creators are lost on where to begin.
Philosopher Daniel Dennett believes AI should never become conscious — and no, it's not because of the robopocalypse.
Elon Musk's new company will use "neural lace" technology to link human brains with machines.
Even our most imaginative expectations of AI are only primitive — but as neuroscience understands the brain more deeply, it will unlock the full potential of hybrid intelligence.
What did Nikola Tesla or Bertrand Russell think of fewer working hours? Can a good life only come from work — and if so how much of it, and what kind?
This AI hates racism, retorts wittily when sexually harassed, dreams of being superintelligent, and finds Siri's conversational skills to be decidedly below her own.
There's a new verb in town: cognify. We have far too much baggage with the word 'intelligence' so to fully embrace the second industrial revolution we need to start talking about artificial cognification.
Elon Musk, Sam Harris, Ray Kurzweil and other visionaries discuss AI superintelligence at a recent conference.
Google's DeepMind artificial intelligence learns what it takes to win, making human-like choices in competitive situations.
One day this century, a robot of super-human intelligence will offer you the chance to upgrade your mind, says AGI expert Ben Goertzel. Will you take it?
Descartes’ solitary, inward-facing mindset misconstrues the social nature of our thinking. Social Cartesianism better captures the soul of what matters in distinguishing humans from animals or machines.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is not nearly as smart as we want it to be. Because we are not nearly as smart as we want to be.
Google’s Deep Brain team watched neural nets learn to develop their own encryption.
They may look odd, but it’s all part of Google’s plan to solve a huge issue in machine learning: recognizing objects in images.
According to Pulitzer prize-nominated writer Nicholas Carr the internet is a utopia in which we never have to confront anything. When technology and humanity intersect, how does it affect our brains, our intellect, and our ability to explore?
Google's DeepMind creates AI that blows away existing speech synthesizers.
The saying in coding goes: if you have to do a job more than once, automate the task. Bots will one day unburden you from these tasks.
