Analyst: Intel's investments in AI could boost stock by 20%

Intel's investments in AI could help its stock price rally by over 20%. Analysts see the company as being in a "better position" in the machine learning market than is recognised. Intel's long-term strategy could prove more effective than its rivals.

Microsoft uses 'neural fuzzing' technique to find software bugs

Microsoft has announced a method for uncovering bugs and vulnerabilities in software using machine learning capabilities. Called neural fuzzing, the technique uses neural networks to complement regular fuzz testing, a common quality assurance practice.

Students trick an AI into misclassifying images

A team of AI researchers have found a way to "reliably" trick image recognition algorithms into misclassifying objects. The technique changes a single pixel in images. The AI is then fooled into detecting different objects within the data.

AWS, Microsoft unveil new deep learning framework for developers

Microsoft and Amazon Web Services have announced a new deep learning library that makes it easier for developers to get started with machine learning. Called Gluon, the interface offers built-in components that can be connected to form neural networks.

AI teaches itself how to understand sentiment

A neural network has taught itself to understand sentiment while completing a mundane text prediction task. The AI had been tasked with predicting the next character in Amazon reviews but ended up analysing sentiment, without any input from its creators.

Op-Ed: One big step for AI — Intel’s new self learning chip Loihi

Sydney - If there's one thing at which all sciences are truly lousy at, it's explaining themselves. Intel's new “self learning” chip called Loihi IS a major, very necessary, step forward. Try and find out why, from the information available.

Intel unveils Neural Compute Engine for AI applications

Imagine a tiny chip that can put the power of human vision into every device. The launch of the Neural Compute Engine in Intel’s new Movidius Myriad X VPU moves this closer to unleashing visual intelligence in drones and robots.

Google explains how AI writes music and learns to tell jokes

Google has discussed how its researchers are training AI to create music, art and jokes. The company is working with specialised models to emulate human creative behaviour. Many of the issues are around understanding creativity, not implementing it in AI.

Emoji analysis helps AI detect sarcasm in tweets

A team of researchers have developed an algorithm capable of detecting the sentiment and emotions expressed in tweets. It uses a neural network to analyse emoji contained in the tweets, allowing the underlying meaning to be interpreted.

Microsoft sees cyberattacks as part of the 'fabric of society'

Microsoft has warned that artificial intelligence could "reset" cybercrime and the techniques used to combat it. AI is being used to tackle emerging threats but is also powering a new generation of malware created by elite attackers.

This tiny USB stick lets you get started with AI for $79

A new USB stick offers everything you need to get started with neural computing development for just $79. Created by Movidius, an AI startup now owned by Intel, the Neural Compute Stick aims to "democratize" deep learning so everyone can access it.

Researchers shut down AI that invented its own language

An artificial intelligence system being developed at Facebook has created its own language. It developed a system of code words to make communication more efficient. Researchers shut the system down when they realized the AI was no longer using English.

Google Allo update generates personalised stickers from selfies

Google is continuing to slowly trickle new features down to users of its AI-powered messaging app Allo. This week, the company unveiled a special capability that lets you generate selfie stickers similar to Bitmoji from your real photos.

Google expands use of AI-powered translations to more languages

Google has announced the expansion of its neural network integration with Google Translate. The system enables Translate to generate more accurate translations for key words and phrases. The technology is now being rolled out to several new languages.

Essential Science: Parallels between your brain and the Internet

The human brain and the interconnections that form the Internet share a key similarity, according to new research. Here a common rule governs traffic flow in engineered and biological systems.

Google's machine intelligence can now run offline on smartwatches

Google has explained how it managed to get advanced artificial intelligence running offline on smartwatch processors. The system, formerly confined to high-performance datacentres, now powers Android Wear 2.0's suggested message replies.

Google creates tech that lets you enhance zoomed-in images

Google has demonstrated a prototype system capable of making "zoom and enhance" a reality. The technology restores detail to pixelated areas of zoomed-in images. It's often featured in TV programs, despite not previously being possible in the real world.
