A custom-built machine learning algorithm can predict when a complex system is about to switch to a wildly different mode of behavior.
Anima Anandkumar wants computer scientists to move beyond the matrix, among other challenges.
Self-supervised learning allows a neural network to figure out for itself what matters. The process might be what makes our own brains so successful.
Christopher Kanan is building algorithms that can continuously learn over time — the way we do.
Artificial intelligence has bested humans at problem-solving challenges like chess and Go. Is mathematics research next? Steven Strogatz speaks with mathematician Kevin Buzzard to learn about the effort to translate math into language that computers understand.
Intelligent beings learn by interacting with the world. Artificial intelligence researchers have adopted a similar strategy to teach their virtual agents new tricks.
Researchers say we’re on the cusp of “GoPro physics,” where a camera can point at an event and an algorithm can identify the underlying physics equation.
