It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that artificial intelligence will be the great revolution of our century. AI stands at the crossroads of technology, ethics, morality, and the human factor. And that’s what makes it so fascinating. Several AI heavyweights, among them DeepMind, have already squarely placed ethics at the centre of their corporate culture, a reminder that science rhymes with conscience.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and its underlying code are now ubiquitous. It is all too easy to become disoriented in this vast field of research that lies at the crossroads of neuroscience, computer science and mathematics. AI algorithms are powerful, innovative and even computer scientists consider them deeply mysterious. To understand these algorithms, let’s break them down into their basic elements. From personalized suggestion tools to cancer detection tools to newsfeed, image and data generation tools, AI is drastically changing our approach to problem resolution not only in the field of computer science but also in other fields, some of them unrelated to computers.
Deep Learning is capturing the imagination of programmers and stimulating their creativity, particularly in the fields of image and sound processing. Here are seven especially exciting applications, some of which are milestones in the history of artificial intelligence.
Geoffrey Hinton, a major figure in the history of deep learning, introduced a completely new type of neural network. This did not fail to arouse the curiosity and enthusiasm of the artificial intelligence research community. Capsule networks will certainly transform the capabilities and possibilities of machine learning in many areas. But what do they bring?
