For fans of artificial intelligence, the past few weeks have been very exciting. Last October, for the first time ever, an AI built by Google, known as AlphaGo, beat a professional human player at the incredibly complex board game Go. And then, in this last week, it went on to… Continue Reading AI vs. Human: The Greatest Go Tournament Ever

Hello all aspiring and actual roboticists to our cube! Today we want to present you the research of a soft artificial skin, which can detect stretching, as well as pressure! The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Being the principal site of interaction with the environment, it… Continue Reading Soft Artificial Skin with Flexible Sensors | R3 Roboy’s Research Reviews #8

Trees don’t have brains. Why don’t they have brains? Well the reason, people think—biologists, neuroscientists, you know, colleagues of mine— is that the purpose of the brain is actually movement. So if you look across biology, systems that have brains are the ones that need to act on the world.… Continue Reading Science at Uber: Applying Artificial Intelligence at Uber

Rana El Kaliouby: When you or I look at this creature we know it’s a dog. But when a computer sees him, all it sees is this… How do I get a computer to recognize that this photo, or this one, or that one, is a photo of a dog?… Continue Reading AI Explained: What Is A Neural Net?

Hello world, it’s Siraj, and today we’re going to do some GPU programming to add the elements of two arrays together Sounds super simple, I know, but it will be a way for us to introduce ourselves to the key concepts that make up the incredible world of parallel computing… Continue Reading An Introduction to GPU Programming with CUDA

When I was a kid, I was the quintessential nerd. I think some of you were, too. (Laughter) And you, sir, who laughed the loudest, you probably still are. (Laughter) I grew up in a small town in the dusty plains of north Texas, the son of a sheriff who… Continue Reading Don’t fear superintelligent AI | Grady Booch

Hummingbirds are ravenous. These tiniest of birds have the highest metabolism of any warm blooded animal. And they’re fueled by flower nectar. To get it, they’ve developed skills no other birds have. They can fly backwards and hover for long stretches of time. Their beaks stay steady like a surgeon’s… Continue Reading What Happens When You Put a Hummingbird in a Wind Tunnel? | Deep Look

Let’s talk about artificial intelligence and robotics, what is it exactly? Right off the bat you’re probably thinking a cybernetic organism with living tissue over a metal endoskeleton… yeah. well this is just a small part of it artificial intelligence, more commonly known as AI doesn’t always have to exist… Continue Reading What is Artificial Intelligence and Robotics?

Data is everywhere, so the use of data and algorithms to make better decisions can transform almost every aspect of life and at Uber, we’re very fortunate because we’re at the center of a transformation in transportation around the world, as well as providing employment and work opportunities for lots… Continue Reading Science at Uber: Improving Transportation with Artificial Intelligence

Worms. They’re weird, primitive creatures that seem to just squirm around senselessly. BUT this simplistic behavior is exactly what we are looking for in our endeavours to digitize a living brain. Now look at this. This..this looks like a robot being controlled by an ewok. But actually, this robot isn’t… Continue Reading Scientists Put the Brain of a Worm Into a Robot… and It MOVED
