Machine learning is about to change how corporations are run

Posted on 07/22 16:55 in Shows | 0

When you’re a big acquisition-hungry corporation like Google, sometimes you make mistakes — you pay billions for bug-riddled Nest technology, for example.Not only can Google rent out the company’s services for enormous profit, competing with other major machine learning entrants like Amazon for a quickly growing market share, but it can also use DeepMind’s insights to improve its own competitive advantage.

In a historic moment for AI, computers gain ability to generalize learning between activities

Posted on 10/24 18:39 in Shows | 0

However, one pièce de résistance has always remained: No matter how good at prediction a neural network became, it lacked the ability to generalize that ability to learning new tasks.Now, for the first time, a neural network has achieved it.
