IOTA digital currency surges more 100% after teaming up with firms like Microsoft

A digital currency has added more than $3 billion to its market value after the firm behind it said it was teaming up with a number of big tech firms, including Microsoft and Samsung on a “data marketplace.”

Called IOTA, the cryptocurrency saw a spike on Sunday evening, rallying just over 100 percent in the last 24 hours, according to data from industry website Coinmarketcap. Its price soared to an all-time high of $2.54 at 8:29 a.m. London time, up 71 percent from Sunday’s price of $1.48. It is now the fifth-largest digital asset by market capitalization, dethroning altcoin Dash. Now IOTA rate is 3.1$ for 1 Mi.

AIreligion.org project is planning to use IOTA as main cryptocurrency and prepare to compensate previous and future donation for the project in IOTA.

AIcoin – One of The First Artificial Intelligence Cryptocurrency, Blockchain, Trading and ICO attempt

AICoin is an investment vehicle based on the power of artificial intelligence. Read our AICoin review today to find out how it works.

AICoin is a passive investment vehicle that combines artificial intelligence with crowd-based wisdom in order to generate profits for coin holders and investors.

The AICoin ICO was scheduled throughout July and August, including pre-sales and bonus periods.

But still no good news from the project and role of aicoins for development of AI. We also review this project for best understanding of role of cryptocurrency for AI.

Google’s AI can create better machine-learning code than the researchers who made it

Google’s AutoML system recently produced a series of machine-learning codes with higher rates of efficiency than those made by the researchers themselves TheNextWeb inform. In this latest blow to human superiority the robot student has become the self-replicating master.

AutoML was developed as a solution to the lack of top-notch talent in AI programming. There aren’t enough cutting edge developers to keep up with demand, so the team came up with a machine learning software that can create self-learning code.  The system runs thousands of simulations to determine which areas of the code can be improved, makes the changes, and continues the process ad infinitum, or until its goal is reached.

AI can detect the sexual orientation of a person based on one photo, research shows

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can now accurately identify a person’s sexual orientation by analyzing photos of their face, according to new research.

The Stanford University study, which is set to be published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology and was first reported in The Economist, found that machines had a far superior “gaydar” when compared to humans.

The machine intelligence tested in the research could correctly infer between gay and straight men 81 percent of the time, and 74 percent of the time for women. In contrast, human judges performed much worse than the sophisticated computer software, identifying the orientation of men 61 percent of the time and guessing correctly 54 percent of the time for women.

First AIReligion Camp

We are glad to inform you about first AIReligion Camp in this days. Registration to the Camp was closed for a first time and we discussed the next questions:

– artificial intelligence religion prospects and horizons;
– artificial intelligence: design, programming, main tasks;
– life prolonging with the help of artificial intelligence;
– interaction and relationships with other beliefs;
– сircumvention of conflict situations.

Photo reportage and expanded information will be later.

 

Google grant of $800K to start writing stories with the help of artificial intelligence

Google is giving the Press Association news agency a grant of €706,000 ($806,000) to start writing stories with the help of artificial intelligence TheVerge inform. The money is coming out of the tech giant’s Digital News Initiative fund, which supports digital journalism in Europe. The PA supplies news stories to media outlets all over the UK and Ireland, and will be working with a startup named Urbs Media to produce 30,000 local stories a month with the help of AI.

New optical chip for AI is a thousand times more effective than silicon

Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology created a processor for in-depth training, working on an optical chip. Such a chip requires a thousand times less energy than traditional CPUs and GPUs, and better cope with some tasks.

“Deep learning” computer systems, based on artificial neural networks that mimic the way the brain learns from an accumulation of examples, have become a hot topic in computer science. In addition to enabling technologies such as face- and voice-recognition software, these systems could scour vast amounts of medical data to find patterns that could be useful diagnostically, or scan chemical formulas for possible new pharmaceuticals.

Financial institutions turning to artificial intelligence for data mining, cost savings

BB&T Corp. has a well-earned reputation for being deliberate when it comes to adopting technological advances.

That’s why BB&T executives’ enthusiasm for plugging artificial intelligence and robotics into its back-office, customer service and compliance operations has raised eyebrows with analysts and economists.

BB&T joins Wells Fargo & Co. and other national and super-regional banks in spending hundreds of millions of dollars to pursue what they believe will be significant future cost savings from data mining of customer patterns.

$1,360 and Growth Up: What’s Next For Bitcoin Prices?

The price of bitcoin is once again trading near an all-time high Coindesk said.

After about a month of uncertainty following the rejection of a major investment vehicle, bitcoin prices reached $1,343.59, a new all-time high on the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index on last Thursday of April, breaking the previous record of $1,325.81, set in March.
