One of the last bastions of human mastery over computers is about to fall to the relentless onslaught of machine learning algorithms.
If you have a question, you can ask Google or Bing or any number of online databases. Now robots have their own knowledge database
If you’re searching for the perfect present for the physicist who has everything, how about a Lego kit for measuring one of the universe’s fundamental constants?
For encryption to be widely used, it must be built into attractive, easy-to-use apps like those people already rely on.
Another chance to catch the most interesting, and important, articles from the previous week on MIT Technology Review.
Google engineers have trained a machine-learning algorithm to write picture captions using the same techniques it developed for language translation.
The best of the rest from the Physics arXiv preprint server.
DeepMind has built a neural network that can access an external memory like a conventional Turing machine. The result is a computer that mimics the short-term memory of the human brain.
