AI. Positive. Negative. One. Zero.
Classifying things is critical for our daily lives. For example, we have to detect spam mail, fake political news, as well as more mundane things such as objects or faces. When using AI, such tasks are based on “classification technology” in machine learning – having the computer learn using the boundary separating positive and negative […]
Life. Existence. Quantum mechanics.
We’re a little closer to explaining life with quantum mechanics thanks to research carried out with an IBM supercomputer. Encoding behaviours related to self-replication, mutation, interaction between individuals, and (inevitably) death, a quantum algorithm has been used to show that quantum computers can indeed mimic some of the patterns of biology in the real world. […]
Thinking. Remembering. Being.
IBM researchers are developing a new computer architecture, better equipped to handle increased data loads from artificial intelligence. Their designs draw on concepts from the human brain and significantly outperform conventional computers in comparative studies. They reported on their findings in the Journal of Applied Physics, from AIP Publishing. Today’s computers are built on the […]
Improved (useless) algorithms…
Scientists being enthusiastic about improving computers to solve problems faster. (1) At the end we will make computers which will solve all problems at once. And yet. Every problem-solving method entails an important drawback we always tend to forget: that it takes the existence of the problem for granted in the first place… Imagine a […]
