Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Doubts remain about whether such systems are theoretically or practically possible, because of the vast complexity of the human brain. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time. Even supercomputers developed in the 1980s that use 'parallel processing' to carry out billions of operations per second barely begin to match human brain capacity. The tasks that have been studied from this point of view include games, language translation, natural-language understanding, fault diagnosis, robotics, and supplying expert advice.< Less
The Corliss Group Latest Tech Review By Matte Dymond
eBook (PDF): $9.38
More than 180 neuroscientists have signed an open letter to the European Commission calling on it to reconsider the technical goals and oversight of one of the world’s largest brain-mapping... More > projects, predicting it is likely to fail. The European Union agreed last year to invest more than one billion euros in the Human Brain Project (HBP), a 10-year effort involving dozens of research institutions to create a simulation of how the human brain works, using supercomputers. But according to a letter released by dissenting scientists, the project is doomed by opaque management and the pursuit of goals not widely shared by neuroscientists. “We believe the HBP is not a well-conceived or implemented project and that it is ill suited to be the centerpiece of European neuroscience,” the letter says.< Less

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the science of making machines do things that would require intelligence if done by humans; sensing, reasoning, pattern recognition, speech recognition, and... More > problem-solving. AI is an area of research that goes back to the very beginnings of computer science. The idea of building a machine that can perform tasks perceived as requiring human intelligence is an attractive one. The degree of sophistication that constitutes AI tends to be revised upwards with each new generation of computers. At its most ambitious level AI has the goal of creating computers and robots capable of reproducing a broad range of human behaviour. Unlike the human brain, most computers act serially, one operation at a time.

Dark Energy Mystery Solved by Big Breed Theory By Ron Pearson
eBook (PDF): $12.53
Lost expertise resulted in a Big Bang theory predicting a rate of expansion of the universe billions of times too high. Also mysterious Dark Energy was invented to explain why the expansion was... More > speeding up. PART I of this book describes, without maths, how this mystery was resolved. It resulted from a solution to the first problem showing what Dark Energy really is! PART II provides full mathematical detail. New opposed energy dynamics shows how a small net creation can emerge from the void to provide self-creation. A slowly accelerating expansion of the universe is the predicted result. Also, for the first time, a theory is provided able to predict the size of the universe. A new factor adds a massive extra red shift of starlight resulting in greatly reduced estimates for velocities of recession. Six proposals for new research are identified some of them being of Nobel Prize potential. For example, one for a super-computer should confirm the self-organising power of an emerging background structure.< Less

Transits By Peter Patti
eBook (PDF): $2.58
Iu-uuuh! Finalmente un lavoro. E che lavoro! Pat Ferroni quasi non crede alle proprie orecchie quando gli dicono che è stato assunto. Un normale impiego in una multinazionale. 'Nella'... More > multinazionale. *** E' fantascienza? Oppure satira sociale? Sicuramente entrambe le cose. Molti giovani con esperienza di precariato non avranno difficoltà a riconoscersi nel protagonista per via delle sue (dis)avventure nella maxiazienda la cui natura continua a sfuggirgli. Anche la società allo sbando datata nel futuro ha similitudini inevocabili con determinate realtà metropolitane di oggi. Dunque: narrativa solo in parte utopica. >>> Aleph. L'elettrocervello che tutto sa e tutto vede. <<< Less
