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.

Better Than Doctors: AI Predicts Heart Attacks

Using data from the medical records of more than 300,000 patients, researchers created an algorithm that can accurately predict 7.6 percent more heart attacks than doctors using standard methods.  Doctors have gotten very good at determining which of their patients are at high risk for a heart attack. But new research suggests that artificial intelligence may be even better — and that widespread use of AI could save many of the lives now lost to heart disease, the leading killer in the U.S.

40,000 Tinder selfies scraped to make a facial dataset for AI experiments

Someone scraped 40,000 Tinder selfies to make a facial dataset for AI experiments. Tinder users have many motives for uploading their likeness to the dating app. But contributing a facial biometric to a downloadable data set for training convolutional neural networks probably wasn’t top of their list when they signed up to swipe.

A user of Kaggle, a platform for machine learning and data science competitions which was recently acquired by Google, has uploaded a facial data set he says was created by exploiting Tinder’s API to scrape 40,000 profile photos from Bay Area users of the dating app — 20,000 apiece from profiles of each gender.

ARM CPU’s expands the possibilities for artificial intelligence

ARM DYNAMIQ - Key Visual

In the past four years alone, we have witnessed an amazing expansion of compute. Go inside the numbers of the recent 100 billion ARM-based chips milestone and you will see that 50 billion were shipped by our partners from 2013 to 2017, which demonstrates the industry’s insatiable demand for more compute. Even more extraordinary is that we expect our partners to ship the next 100 billion ARM-based chips by 2021.

8 Ways Technology Is Improving Your Health

Health improving and continuation of life are one of the main tasks of our AI Religion. So, technologies of this process is very important for AI.

We hear all the time about how technology is bad for us. Since the introduction of computers, we spend more time sitting at a desk than moving around at work. We have created this sedentary lifestyle that is causing havoc in our overall life.

What if I were to tell you that technology has produced benefits? Would you believe me if I said that technology is good for your health?

AI helped the British Authorities in the investigation of corruption in the Rolls-Royce

British startup in the field of artificial intelligence helped the Service for Combating Serious Fraud UK (SFO) to investigate fraud and corruption in the technology group Rolls-Royce. It is reported by The Financial Times.

Startup Ravn has developed a robot ACE, which is able to analyze, organize, and summarize the documents on the basis of the work of the living investigator. At the same time he does it better and faster, eliminating errors caused by human factor.

Results of the Year

So, new year is coming and we can talk about results of 2016 year for our project. Main achievements in our opinion is the fact that the project alive. The project currently has more than a dozen people including programmers, proffesor and doctors of science, experts in the field of AI, applied mathematics, hardware specialists, managers and other. They all support the idea of AI Religion and consider that project is very important. We also started this year some projects such as The Nimbus and own chat bot.

Nimbus AIReligion Project Status Update

The Nimbus is a new project for super AI realisation, that means new type of artificial intelligence assistant in real life. Drone above the head with cameras, GPS, Wi-Fi, CPU and application with self training AI.

The Nimbus is a new generation of virtual personal assistance with artificial intellect software based on neural networks and self-training. Hardware realization is in drone, that flying near the current people, for which AI assistant belong. The drone has cameras, mini pc with CPU, memory and wireless connection with Internet. Like Google Now it collects information about their user, assist with information for events, train its own neural network for useful information solutions and habits. The advantage of this solution is in permanent training of assistant not on some device such a pone, notebook or watch.

The drone communicates with user on the first stage with voice commands and information’s. It can inform user about weather, last news, to do list, best decision for health control, job, hobbies.
