How Humans Respond to Robots

Cluster analysis. The result of a cluster analysis shown as the coloring of the squares into three clusters.

Cluster analysis

Cluster analysis or clustering is the task of grouping a set of objects in such a way that objects in the same group (called a cluster) are more similar (in some sense or another) to each other than to those in other groups (clusters). It is a main task of exploratory data mining, and a common technique for statistical data analysis, used in many fields, including machine learning, pattern recognition, image analysis, information retrieval, and bioinformatics.

Besides the term clustering, there are a number of terms with similar meanings, including automatic classification, numerical taxonomy, botryology (from Greek βότρυς "grape") and typological analysis. The subtle differences are often in the usage of the results: while in data mining, the resulting groups are the matter of interest, in automatic classification the resulting discriminative power is of interest.

New Ideas About Temporal Pooling · numenta/nupic Wiki

Temporal Pooling, or TP, was described in the HTM/CLA whitepaper. Gensim: Topic modelling for humans. ACT-R. Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures. About. Posterior cingulate. Sagittal MRI slice with highlighting indicating location of the posterior cingulate.

Posterior cingulate

The posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) is the backmost part of the cingulate cortex, lying behind the anterior cingulate cortex. This is the upper part of the "limbic lobe". The cingulate cortex is made up of an area around the midline of the brain. Surrounding areas include the retrosplenial cortex and the precuneus.

Cytoarchitectonically the posterior cingulate cortex is associated with Brodmann areas 23 and 31. The posterior cingulate cortex forms a central node in the default mode network of the brain. Anatomy[edit] Location and boundaries[edit] Posterior cingulate. Disrupting posterior cingulate connectivity disconnects consciousness from the external environment. Highlights Disrupting posterior cingulate connectivity induces a loss of external connectedness.

Disrupting posterior cingulate connectivity disconnects consciousness from the external environment

This suggests that this connectivity may be involved in external awareness. This finding is especially relevant for consciousness-related theories. Medial parietal damage is associated with body schema alterations. Abstract Neurophysiological and neuroimaging studies including both patients with disorders of consciousness and healthy subjects with modified states of consciousness suggest a crucial role of the medial posteroparietal cortex in conscious information processing.

Deep Learning Tutorials — DeepLearning 0.1 documentation. Deep Learning is a new area of Machine Learning research, which has been introduced with the objective of moving Machine Learning closer to one of its original goals: Artificial Intelligence.

Deep Learning Tutorials — DeepLearning 0.1 documentation

See these course notes for a brief introduction to Machine Learning for AI and an introduction to Deep Learning algorithms. Deep Learning is about learning multiple levels of representation and abstraction that help to make sense of data such as images, sound, and text. For more about deep learning algorithms, see for example: The tutorials presented here will introduce you to some of the most important deep learning algorithms and will also show you how to run them using Theano.

Theano is a python library that makes writing deep learning models easy, and gives the option of training them on a GPU.

SILVIA takes in human input through speech, written text, or other input methods. SILVIA can understand the context of that input and respond appropriately with speech and interacting with applications and operating systems on your behalf. SILVIA can also access file systems, networks, web content, and more. SILVIA operates in the context of a client application on desktops and mobile devices, or as part of our SILVIA Server, or even as a node in a peer-to-peer network, or part of the cloud.

Greg Egan Reviews Her: Can People Form Relationships with Software? In the movie Her, which was nominated for the Oscar for Best Picture this year, a middle-aged writer named Theodore Twombly installs and rapidly falls in love with an artificially intelligent operating system who christens herself Samantha.

Greg Egan Reviews Her: Can People Form Relationships with Software?

Samantha lies far beyond the faux “artificial intelligence” of Google Now or Siri: she is as fully and unambiguously conscious as any human. The film’s director and writer, Spike Jonze, employs this premise for limited and prosaic ends, so the film limps along in an uncanny valley, neither believable as near-future reality nor philosophically daring enough to merit suspension of disbelief.

Seven research subjects (or Work Packages) are tightly integrated. Human Motor Primitives - Work Package 1 Humans are an extraordinary example of autonomous systems with multiple degrees of freedom, compliant mechanics, and rich and adaptive motor skills. This work package aims at grounding the development of a novel robot architecture on the human motor control and cognitive architecture and at providing new fundamental and theoretical insights into its organisation. Leading institute: Fondazione Santa Lucia Contact person: Dr. Compliant Systems - Work Package 2. ‎www.darpa.mil/OpenCatalog/index.html. Welcome to the DARPA Open Catalog, which contains a curated list of DARPA-sponsored software and peer-reviewed publications. DARPA sponsors fundamental and applied research in a variety of areas including data science, cyber, anomaly detection, etc., which may lead to experimental results and reusable technology designed to benefit multiple government domains.

The DARPA Open Catalog organizes publicly releasable material from DARPA programs. DARPA has an open strategy to help increase the impact of government investments. DARPA is interested in building communities around government-funded software and research. If the R&D community shows sufficient interest, DARPA will continue to make available information generated by DARPA programs, including software, publications, data, and experimental results. The table on this page lists the programs currently participating in the catalog. Program Manager: Dr. Report a problem: opencatalog@darpa.mil. Martha Palmer.
