Last year, two data scientists from security firm ZeroFOX conducted an experiment to see who was better at getting Twitter users to click on malicious links, humans or an artificial intelligence. The researchers taught an AI to study the behavior of social network users, and then design and implement its own phishing…
Elon Musk, still not yet content to leave our robot-ridden Earth for a safer life on his true home planet of Mars, knows what the future holds. We are barreling toward a future of the robots killing us all, and Musk wants to stop it. So, he and 116 other tech experts are calling for a ban on autonomous weapons—soon.
In partnering with technology company Nvidia—the company that taught a car how to drive from scratch—Mercedes-Benz announced at the Consumer Electronics Show on Friday that artificial intelligence will be the future of its vehicles. Mercedes also said it will have AI technology on the market in a year.
Another year has passed, which means we’re another step closer to the tomorrow of our dreams. Here are the most futuristic developments of 2016.
When an app claims to be powered by “artificial intelligence” it feels like you’re in the future. What does that really mean, though? We’re taking a look at what buzzwords like AI, machine learning, and neural networks really mean and whether they actually help improve your apps.
Technology company Nvidia developed a system that allows a car to learn how to drive itself by essentially being a working, thinking passenger to a human driver, according to Tech Crunch. Cool technology. Great. But did anyone listen when the Terminator movies warned us not to let machines learn things?
An A.I. named “ALPHA,” made by a company called Psibernetix, has apparently impressed the U.S. Air Force by repeatedly splashing a (human) fighter pilot in dogfight simulations. I swear I’m not tricking you into reading my movie script pitch here.
2015 was an insanely wild year in robotics: From leaps in AI technology to piloted, Gundam-like battle machines. We’re living in a bizarre, sci-fi world that entangles humans with robots more than ever before. Here are ten of the craziest ‘bots from the past year.
Noted killer robot-fearer Elon Musk has a plan to save humanity from the looming robopocalypse: developing advanced artificial intelligence systems. You know, the exact technologies that could lead to the robopocalypse.
If a transforming robot is cooler than a regular robot, then what’s cooler than a transforming robot? Why, a bunch of transforming robots that combine together to form one giant robot! So how can we make that happen, and if so, what would happen?
When Google announced its new artificial intelligence system could play, learn, and beat some old-school Atari games, my first reaction was, "Cool. Call me when it can play Spy Hunter." Actually, what about Gran Turismo? Because that's obviously part of the plan.
The engineering department at Volkswagen has developed a system that politely suggests when it is time for the driver to countersteer. Thanks to the miracle of electromagnetic power steering, the Volkswagen ESP Plus Steering Impulse technology will intervene during slippery driving conditions. This intervention can…
Scientists in England have developed AI equipped wheels capable of improving both the safety and speed of cars. Developed at the University of Portsmouth, sensors in each wheel will control the brakes, suspension and steering, all while communicating with each other and learning from their actions. A Researcher from…
