DeepMind’s latest AI transfers its learning to new tasks

DeepMind’s latest AI transfers its learning to new tasks By using insights from one job to help it do another, a successful new artificial intelligence hints at a more versatile future for machine learning. Backstory: Most algorithms can be trained in only one domain, and can’t use what’s been learned for one task to perform another, new one. A big hope […]

Researchers are using Darwin's theories to evolve AI, so only the strongest algorithms survive

Modern artificial intelligence is built to mimic nature-the field’s main pursuit is replicating in a computer the same decision-making prowess that humankind creates biologically. For the better part of three decades, most of AI’s brain-inspired development has surrounded “neural networks,” a term borrowed from neurobiology that describes machine thought as the movement of data through…
