A controversial theory suggests that perception, motor control, memory and other brain functions all depend on comparisons between ongoing actual experiences and the brain’s modeled expectations.
Judea Pearl, a pioneering figure in artificial intelligence, argues that AI has been stuck in a decades-long rut. His prescription for progress? Teach machines to understand the question why.
In new computer experiments, artificial-intelligence algorithms can tell the future of chaotic systems.
The latest artificial intelligence systems start from zero knowledge of a game and grow to world-beating in a matter of hours. But researchers are struggling to apply these systems beyond the arcade.
The fusion of quantum computing and machine learning has become a booming research area. Can it possibly live up to its high expectations?
And not destroy humanity in the process.
A new version of AlphaGo needed no human instruction to figure out how to clobber the best Go player in the world — itself.
