Elon Musk is back at it with yet another venture. This time, he attempts to turn his science fiction dreams of unlocking the brain’s full potential to reality—in the form of a coin-sized chip. Connecting our minds to the gadgets around us opens up realms of possibility, granting expediency of immense magnitude, and paving the way to a more enjoyable life—but it can also go awfully wrong.
The Student Council of MIT arranged a technical talk with a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MMVP), Eve Pardi. An enthusiastic AI developer who is always eager to spread her knowledge, Pardi sat down with The MIT Post and recounted her experiences in the field.
The Data Science Club conducted a workshop on 2nd February that dwelled into a subtler field of AI—Natural Language Processing. The event explored the nitty-gritty of the machine learning behind NLP through an intuitive lecture session along with a practical model.
Videos of Obama bad-mouthing Donald Trump, fake pornographic images of celebrities, and Nicholas Cage in a Superman movie clip are some of the content available online courtesy DeepFake. The algorithms behind this, GANs, while a huge breakthrough in deep learning, represent a serious risk of destroying lives through the lies that it can propagate.
The Washington Post’s AI bot Heliograf has over 850 published articles to its name. Around the world, artificial intelligence is finding growing use in newsrooms as more and more agencies automate the creation of reports.
IEEE’s Tech Talk 2.0 tried to demystify the complex field of Artificial Intelligence. It featured talks by three students well-versed in the subject and proved to be very enlightening for the students.
An overwhelming amount of knowledge poured into a small KMC hall over two enthusiastic and refreshingly informative days at Dronaid’s Disruptive Healthcare Workshop. From studying logistic regression algorithms and applying to real-life revolutionary medical predictions of breast cancer or heart disease, the Deep Learning and AI workshop was the right advance in strengthening the bond between anatomy and technology, all in an inquisitive zeal to make healthcare one of humanity’s strongest assets in the coming future.
With robots revolutionising agriculture, transport, manufacturing, warehousing and a number of such industries, the 21st century is the most exciting period in robotics.
In the first article of Future Bytes, RoboManipal walks you through the state of robotics today, its origins, and its driving principles.
In yet another way, Manipal city has proven to be one of the finest centres of formal education. To carry this baton one notch higher, MIT has signed up with the leading AI giant – Nurture.AI to reproduce the AI Sundays workshops.
The rapid exponential advancement of computing technology is constantly providing new ways to better and transform lives everywhere. Even as artificial intelligence is finding broad and monumental applications, it has also found a place and is transforming another industry in a more subtle way. Read about how the fusion of art and science as machines create music.
