Turing Learning breakthrough: Computers can now learn from pure observation

Posted on 08/30 19:03 in Shows | 0

This new learning process is called Turing Learning because it basically puts a very simple version of this pass-fail differentiation test into practice, over and over again.(As an aside, yes, the “model” swarm should really be the one that is used as the model, but whatever.

) Building on SCIgen and programs like it, researchers have now taken another shot at the peer reviewing process.The researchers made randomly generated reviews of actual published articles using their iteration of a Markov chain, and then gave them to reviewers, slipped into the stack like ringers between actual reviews.

Specialized processors might reignite performance scaling, but they’ll also change the nature of computing forever

Posted on 10/04 14:44 in Shows | 0

Modern CPU scaling has largely flatlined, thanks to a combination of scaling challenges, intrinsic limits to silicon performance, and a general shift in the market towards lower power devices.To demonstrate, here’s a graph of Apple iPhone single-core CPU performance in Geekbench 2 and Geekbench 3.

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.
