The rise of artificial intelligence and robotic advancements aren't new in modern society nowadays. Improvements in the field are commonplace and these things appear one after the other. However, it appears there's more to the biggest tech companies than just "advancing" technologies.
Google and small British startup Improbable are out to do the "impossible" -- make the entire world a virtual reality.
Robots are steadily becoming popular because of their potential to help their human creators do most of their jobs for them, primarily because they are menial or dangerous. But what if they learn together?
Google is not only the Silicon Valley giant who is racing towards renewable energy. Other companies like Apple and Facebook are also geared towards the same goal.
The realm of virtual reality is about to get global. Some of the world's top tech companies have merged to form a Global Virtual Reality Association in the spirit of collaboration and cooperation.
Google's DeepMind will publicly release its AI training platform in its bid to increasingly embrace open-source initiatives. This also appears to be a response to Elon Musk's initiative on making its OpenAI robot gym available to the public.
It appears despite the benign nature of Google DeepMind and its AI projects, it still has secrets it wants to keep. DeepMind cofounder Mustafa Suleyman has been mum about the members of the group's mysterious AI ethics board. This is despite saying he wants to disclose it to the public.
Software development appears to have reached a stage where "self-written" code is becoming better and better than humans. This is considering we have only gone a few decades since the invention of the internet, and it seems even human programmers are starting to be obsolete.
Latest developments surrounding Google, Microsoft, and Facebook point toward massive plans of enhancing AI operations. While these have their benefits, will this eventually begin the rise of AI overlords?
Can you "read" what she's saying? Google DeepMind's newest AI endeavor can. A new project by DeepMind and the University of Oxford has created a lip-reading system that can send the best professionals with a run for their money.
Google is apparently 'teaching' artificial intelligence to become better at translating foreign languages. This includes the diction and intonation as it the bot is a native speaker of the specific language in question.
Researchers from Google's DeepMind announced some of their new artificial intelligence (AI) projects are learning "how" the world works -- akin to how a child experiments with the way the world works. This opens an entirely new breakthrough in the realm of machine learning.
A patent from tech giant Google was recently made available to the public. The company's innovation is poised to revolutionize human function -- specifically humanity's sense of sight. According to the patent that was filed last April, Google is in the process of developing liquid contact lenses that are designed to be injected directly into a lens capsule of the eye.
Tech giant Google is teaming up with gaming publisher Blizzard to improve artificial intelligence (AI) through one of its games: StarCraft. However, it seems other games may fit the "teaching" bill as well.
Google's DeepMind has already mastered the game of Go and now will focus on an entirely unique game: StarCraft II. At the 2016 Blizzcon event, Blizzard announced that it will be partnering with Google to use StarCraft II as a research platform for companies building artificial intelligence (AI) programmers.
