Chris Anderson: Help us understand what machine learning is, because that seems to be the key driver of so much of the excitement and also of the concern around artificial intelligence. How does machine learning work? Sebastian Thrun: So, artificial intelligence and machine learning is about 60 years old and… Continue Reading What AI is — and isn’t | Sebastian Thrun and Chris Anderson

Nylon. It changed the world. It was the first ever fully synthetic fibre to be mass-produced and marketed! Elastic, tear-resistant and long-lasting – a real revolution for the textile industry. But nature has produced an even better fibre. One with properties that have been perfected over 300 million years of… Continue Reading Thomas Scheibel – Artificial spider silk

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

Ever since computers were invented, we’ve been trying to make them smarter and more powerful. From the abacus, to room-sized machines, to desktops, to computers in our pockets. And are now designing artificial intelligence to automate tasks that would require human intelligence. If you look at the history of computing,… Continue Reading How AI could become an extension of your mind | Arnav Kapur

(crickets chirping) (bees buzzing) – [Voiceover] We have evolved alongside the honeybee in a symbiotic relationship. We care for them, they pollinate our crops, and of course, make lots of delicious honey. But getting the golden nectar has always been quite a task.

Artificial intelligence is, really, techniques that help machines and computers mimic human behavior. It’s like a Russian nesting doll… Artificial intelligence, at the highest level, is the device being smart. How it becomes smart under the hood then is the next layer of machine learning, which are the general techniques… Continue Reading AI Explained in 101 Seconds

In 2015, 25 teams from around the world competed to build robots for disaster response that could perform a number of tasks, such as using a power tool, working on uneven terrain and driving a car. That all sounds impressive, and it is, but look at the body of the… Continue Reading The artificial muscles that will power robots of the future | Christoph Keplinger
