Announcing Neural’s weekly AI newsletter for cyborgs and humans

Greetings humanoids! I could not be more excited to introduce Neural’s new weekly newsletter. Every seventh day, the cyborgs who write for Neural will send you an email full of news, analysis, opinion, and “Gee Whiz!” moments galore. All you have to do is sign up and start clicking the refresh button on your inbox until your bony human fingers splinter and break. Or, you could just wait until tomorrow, Friday 12 March, when we send out the first issue. After much deliberation, we chose to call it: “The Neural Newsletter.” Okay, that doesn’t leap right of the page, but there’s…

Deep learning models DON’T need to be black boxes — here’s how

Deep neural networks can perform wonderful feats thanks to their extremely large and complicated web of parameters. But their complexity is also their curse: The inner workings of neural networks are often a mystery — even to their creators. This is a challenge that has been troubling the artificial intelligence community since deep learning started to become popular in the early 2010s. In tandem with the expansion of deep learning in various domains and applications, there has been a growing interest in developing techniques that try to explain neural networks by examining their results and learned parameters. But these explanations are often erroneous and misleading, and… This story continues at The Next Web

Can AI be hypnotized?

It’s no longer considered science fiction fodder to imagine a human-level machine intelligence in our lifetimes. Year after year we see the status quo in AI research shattered as yesterday’s algorithms bear way to today’s systems. One day, perhaps within a matter of decades, we might build machines with artificial neural networks that imitate our brains in every meaningful way. And when that happens, it’ll be important to make sure they’re not as easy to hack as we are. Robo-hypno-tism? The Holy Grail of AI is human-level intelligence. Modern AI might seem pretty smart given all the hyperbolic headlines you… This story continues at The Next Web

Why humans and AI are stuck in a standoff against fake news

Fake news is a scourge on the global community. Despite our best efforts to combat it, the problem lies deeper than just fact-checking or squelching publications that specialize in misinformation. The current thinking still tends to support an AI-powered solution, but what does that really mean? According to recent research, including this paper from scientists at the University of Tennessee and the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, we’re going to need more than just clever algorithms to fix our broken discourse. The problem is simple: AI can’t do anything a person can’t do. Sure, it can do plenty of things faster and… This story continues at The Next Web

This ‘AI doctor’ can assess skin melanoma as accurately as human dermatologists

Scientists from the University of Gothenburg have developed an algorithm that assesses the severity of skin melanoma as accurately as dermatologists. The system was developed to help doctors determine the stage that a skin cancer has reached. While patients often independently find melanomas by spotting a new mole or a change in an existing one, even dermatologists can struggle to decide whether it’s invasive or not. The researchers suspected that AI could assist them with the task. [Read: How Polestar is using blockchain to increase transparency] They classified the melanomas with a convolutional neural network (CNN), a powerful method of analyzing images that’s proven… This story continues at The Next Web
