Russian brains behind closest ever AI attempt
narswang What makes NARS different from conventional reasoning systems is its ability to learn from its experience and to work with insufficient knowledge and resources. NARS attempts to uniformly explain and reproduce many cognitive facilities, including reasoning, learning, planning, reacting, perceiving, categorizing, prioritizing, remembering, decision making, and so on. The research results include a theory of intelligence, a formal model of the theory, and a computer implementation of the model. The ultimate goal of this research is to fully understand the mind, as well as to build thinking machines. narswang
BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks
Between Ape and Artilect Between Ape and Artilect A compendium of interviews and dialogues originally appearing in H+ Magazine, Between Ape and Artilect has been released as a good old fashioned paper book (or ebook) by Humanity+ Press, available for purchase via – or available as a free PDF here. The book is edited by noted AI researcher and long-time Humanity+ Board member Ben Goertzel. During 2010-12, Dr. Goertzel conducted a series of textual interviews with researchers in various areas of cutting-edge science — artificial general intelligence, nanotechnology, life extension, neurotechnology, collective intelligence, mind uploading, body modification, neuro-spiritual transformation, and more. These interviews were published online in H+ Magazine, and are here gathered together in a single volume.
Artificial brains are man-made machines that are just as intelligent, creative, and self-aware as humans. No such machine has yet been built, but it is only a matter of time. This website tracks the latest scientific and technological progress. » read more… Neuromorphic hardware DARPA SyNAPSE Program SyNAPSE is a DARPA-funded program to develop neuromorphic microprocessor systems that match the intelligence, physical size, and low power consumption of animal brains.

Artificial Brains - The quest to build sentient machines
Spaun, the new human brain simulator, can carry out tasks (w/ video) Spaun, the new human brain simulator, can carry out tasks (w/ video) (—One of the challenges of understanding the complex behavior of animals is to relate the behavior to the complex processes occurring within the brain. So far, neural models have not been able to bridge this gap, but a new software model, Spaun, goes some way to addressing this problem. The Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network (Spaun) is a computer model of the human brain built by Professor Chris Eliasmith and colleagues of the University of Waterloo in Canada.
The numbers may not sound too impressive, but this is an important breakthrough in simulation technology and has wide-reaching implications. Using the K supercomputer, the fourth most powerful in world, scientists in Japan replicated a network of 1.73 billion nerve cells and 10.4 trillion synapses. It took the K computer, with over 700,000 processor cores and 1.4 million GB of RAM, 40 minutes to model the data. How powerful is a mind?

Watson Is Now Commercially Available, Set To Help Doctors Treat Cancer Watson Is Now Commercially Available, Set To Help Doctors Treat Cancer [Source: ibmbusinessanalytics via YouTube] IBM’s most promising medical student just graduated and is ready to join the workforce and help people – in the fight against cancer, to be specific. IBM has just released a commercially available Watson whose cognitive computing could help doctors make better diagnoses and smarter treatment choices. IBM has partnered with WellPoint, Inc. and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to train Watson in oncology and utilization management. A team of clinicians and technicians spent thousands of hours “teaching” Watson how to process, analyze, and interpret complex clinical information through natural language processing. The hope is that Watson can help raise the quality of healthcare and make it more efficient.

Artificial Intelligence : Science World Report
A new era of cognitive computing IBM says it is possible to build a new computing architecture that is more human-like and biologically inspired than traditional systems. After a year of “medical school”, IBM’s intelligent supercomputer, Watson, has produced its first commercially available applications for doctors and health insurance companies. Now that Watson is proving itself in the medical field, the door is being flung open for other industries and a new era of cognitive computing. A new era of cognitive computing

University CS 221 Introduction to Artificial Intelligence University CS 221 Introduction to Artificial Intelligence What is this course about? What do web search, speech recognition, face recognition, machine translation, autonomous driving, and automatic scheduling have in common? These are all complex real-world problems, and the goal of Artificial intelligence (AI) is to tackle these with rigorous mathematical tools. In this course, you will learn the foundational principles that drive these applications and practice implementing some of these systems. Specific topics include machine learning, search, game playing, Markov decision processes, constraint satisfaction, graphical models, and logic.
"El màster en Smart Healthcare forma tecnòlegs capaços de donar resposta als nous reptes que planteja la gestió de la salut aprofitant al màxim les possibilitats que ofereixen les TIC. Aquests tecnòlegs han d'adquirir coneixements en diferents disciplines —principalment Intel·ligència Artificial, processos assistencials, gestió de qualitat i estàndards— per poder donar resposta als reptes actuals en els serveis a la salut."

(ISNS) -- A single equation grounded in basic physics principles could describe intelligence and stimulate new insights in fields as diverse as finance and robotics, according to new research. Alexander Wissner-Gross, a physicist at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Cameron Freer, a mathematician at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, developed an equation that they say describes many intelligent or cognitive behaviors, such as upright walking and tool use. The researchers suggest that intelligent behavior stems from the impulse to seize control of future events in the environment. This is the exact opposite of the classic science-fiction scenario in which computers or robots become intelligent, then set their sights on taking over the world. Physicist Proposes New Way To Think About Intelligence
The emergence of complex behaviors through causal entropic forces ( —An ambitious new paper published in Physical Review Letters seeks to describe intelligence as a fundamentally thermodynamic process. The authors made an appeal to entropy to inspire a new formalism that has shown remarkable predictive power. To illustrate their principles they developed software called Entropica, which when applied to a broad class of rudimentary examples, efficiently leads to unexpectedly complex behaviors.
Big Data is the new Artificial Intelligence This is the first of a couple columns about a growing trend in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it is likely to be integrated in our culture. Computerworld ran an interesting overview article on the subject yesterday that got me thinking not only about where this technology is going but how it is likely to affect us not just as a people. but as individuals. How is AI likely to affect me?
