What's up in
By ignoring their goals, evolutionary algorithms have solved longstanding challenges in artificial intelligence.
A tool known as BERT can now beat humans on advanced reading-comprehension tests. But it’s also revealed how far AI has to go.
In some ways, machine vision is superior to human vision. In other ways, it may never catch up.
The computer vision scientist Greg Johnson is building systems that can recognize organelles on sight and show the dynamics of living cells more clearly than microscopy can.
Neural networks can be as unpredictable as they are powerful. Now mathematicians are beginning to reveal how a neural network’s form will influence its function.
Neural networks are famously incomprehensible, so Been Kim is developing a “translator for humans.”
A visual prank exposes an Achilles’ heel of computer vision systems: Unlike humans, they can’t do a double take.
