A chip that can classify nearly 2 billion images per second

Artificial intelligence (AI) plays an important role in many systems, from predictive text to medical diagnoses. Inspired by the human brain, many AI systems are implemented based on artificial neural networks, where electrical equivalents of biological neurons are interconnected, trained with a set of known data, such as images, and then used to recognize or classify new data points.

Do AI systems really have their own secret language?

A new generation of artificial intelligence (AI) models can produce "creative" images on-demand based on a text prompt. The likes of Imagen, MidJourney, and DALL-E 2 are beginning to change the way creative content is made with implications for copyright and intellectual property.

A machine-learning method hallucinates its way to better text translation

As babies, we babble and imitate our way to learning languages. We don't start off reading raw text, which requires fundamental knowledge and understanding about the world, as well as the advanced ability to interpret and infer descriptions and relationships.

How sports clubs achieve a slam dunk in loyalty with data

The way we watch, engage, and interact with our favourite sports clubs is undergoing a seismic shift. Recent UK research suggests that data will now have a more important role in fan engagement than ever before. In this article, we take a closer look at what this means for sports clubs serious about future-proofing their strategy to attract and retain loyal fans.

The signature of taste: New technology for the food and beverage industry

Blending whiskies from different casks is an art in itself. Whisky blenders are luminaries of their guild. Just as painters mix colors to capture mood on canvas, the experts in distilleries combine flavors to create "liquid gold." They follow their intuition, which is based on experience and a keen sense of taste and smell.

Neuroscientist explains differences between AI and human learning

Recently developed artificial intelligence (AI) models are capable of many impressive feats, including recognizing images and producing human-like language. But just because AI can perform human-like behaviors doesn't mean it can think or understand like humans.

06 June 2022,

We're told AI neural networks 'learn' the way humans do. A neuroscientist explains why that's not the case.

We’ve seen AI systems writing texts that are indistinguishable from human texts. Some are even rendering impressive 3D artworks from short text inputs. But it doesn’t mean they can ‘think’ like us.
