Don Norman has published some excerpts from his forthcoming book, Design for a Better World, which will almost certainly become another classic. DeepMind has released some information about AlphaCode, which solves problems from coding competitions well enough to put it in the mid range of competitors. And Holochain is a decentralized framework for building peer-to-peer microservices–no cloud provider needed. Is it another component of Web3 or something new and different?
NVIDIA has developed techniques for training primitive graphical operations for neural networks in near real-time.
Why isn’t AI used more to protect vulnerable people? Poor data quality, lack of accountability, lack of explainability, and the misuse of data–all problems that could make vulnerable people even more so.
A tool that predicts where code needs comments isn’t quite as flashy as Github, Copilot, or AlphaCode, but it’s another way AI applications can partner with humans.
Face recognition in virtual reality: In a fascinating combination of work from AI and neurology, researchers have used EEGs to detect facial expressions and used those expressions to control a virtual reality environment.
In a collaboration between DeepMind and the Swiss Plasma Center, Deep Learning has been used ...
