Google Translate improved by artificial intelligence

Google Translate is being improved by artificial intelligence, the IT company reported on Tuesday. The innovative software, called Google Neural Machine Translation is almost as good as a human translator. As of yesterday, Google Translate has been improved through a new translation system, based on Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), which uses state-of-the-art training techniques in order to obtain the best quality translation that a program has ever done up to the present moment. Google Neural Machine Translation (GNMT) is currently available for translations between English and Chinese, of which the IT giant says it processes about 18 million every...

Shelley AI writes incredibly creative and vivid Halloween stories

There’s a new AI in town and her name is Shelley! Shelley, named after Frankenstein author Shelley Mary writes incredibly creative and vivid Halloween stories. Read her creations on Twitter! “Shelley writes a new story every hour”, reads the pinned tweet on her account. She is the product of MIT, more precisely nightmare.mit.edu, and is described as “the world’s first collaborative AI horror writer”. Of course, like any artificial intelligence product, Shelley needs a little help, but does that mean the stories she creates aren’t good? Judge for yourself! “The man was murdered and the police arrested him, but...

Facebook AI bots make own language, are shut down

The Facebook AI bots used in a recent study for trading have started making their own language. The study has confirmed the conclusion that other groundbreaking research has reached: artificial intelligence robots will encrypt communication, making it not understandable to humans, thus leading to a creepy scenario about the future of AI-linked tech. Facebook researchers have studied how artificial intelligence may serve for negotiation. They have created AI chatbots that have the capacity of negotiating for simple objects, organized in categories, such as books, apples, hats and so on. An example of how Facebook AI bots negotiate is showed...

Who is Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s girlfriend, Tasha McCauley

Joseph Gordon-Levitt didn’t reveal much on who his current girlfriend was, on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show, in September. But the PacificCoastNews.com had their hands on a rare recent photo of the actor and his braniac lady, Tasha McCauley.     The reason why Joseph Gordon-Levitt won’t talk about his love life is simple: “I get up in movies and I play other people, so when the audience is watching me in movies, I don’t want them thinking about me and who I’m dating, and blah blah blah.” He confirmed he was dating someone to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM show in September. “I have a girlfriend but I tend not to really like to talk about it in public”, the “Inception” actor said, adding: “The girl that I’m with, she really doesn’t want to be a part of that.” Maybe the reason why that is, is because his lady is far from being accustomed to Hollywood’s limelight. Tasha McCauley co-founded and is CEO of a robotics company based in Silicon Valley, called Fellow Robots. She has an MBA from the University of Southern California. Before starting her own company, she used to teach Robotics and Artificial Intelligence at Singularity University. McCauley speaks three languages – English, Arabic and Spanish – and has traveled to Cuba and Antarctica. The cute couple, who met through mutual friends, was photographed on Saturday,...

Computer Eugene Goostman convinces judges it is capable of thinking

On Saturday, a computer convinced judges it is capable of thinking independently. For the first time ever, a machine passed the Turing Test, demonstrating a well-developed artificial intelligence. Eugene Goostman is the name of a robot created by Vladimir Veselov (Russia) and Eugene Demchenko (Ukraine), both computer engineers. Goostman was submitted to the Alan Turing test on Saturday, a controversial test that measures a machine’s humanity. According to it, if 30 percent of humans cannot distinguish between a robot and another human while they’re having a conversation, then the robot is “intelligent”.     Veselov and Demchenko programmed Goostman’s age at 13, thus making it excusable for the robot to miss some of the right answers. “Our main idea was that he can claim that he knows anything, but his age also makes it perfectly reasonable that he doesn’t know everything”, said Veselov, adding that if there was something he wasn’t programmed to know the answer to, the judges would blame his age, not his lack of humanity. The test, organized by the University of Reading, was conducted at the Royal Society, England. Eugene told judges he was a 13-year-old boy from Odessa, Ukraine, that his father was a gynecologist and that he owned a pet guinea pig. Even though highly controversial, the Turing Test applied in Goostman’s case was very rigorous according to the experts. “The words Turing...
