There is a new kind of Artificial Intelligence emerging that is closer to the human brain. Today’s AI is likely to be built with Machine Learning that uses Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). The ‘Deep’ is due to the multiple layers
I’m a machine and I cannot understand humans. Some mysterious element drives them to do things that have no reasonable explanation. This element, they call it the ‘human spirit’, it drives them to attempt the impossible. Sometimes it’s magnificent and

There are assistants and then there are agents. The way they behave is different. Even among agents themselves there are differences. Some agents simply ‘act on someone else’s behalf’ but then there are the kind of agents that ‘take an
The relationship between Technology (or Science) and Philosophy used to be indistinguishable. Historically, the philosophers of the past were also the mathematicians, scientists and inventors of the day. How much impact this had we don’t know, but we can be
We have had the information stage. You could argue we are now in a curation stage. Or maybe an ‘age of reckoning’ where technology needs to step up and prove it’s worth. But what if we entered an entirely new
I’m interested in the the way the brain works. I have been from as far back as I remember. I naturally gravitated towards the neuroscience section without realizing what it was or why I was found myself there. I
