Enlarge / But what does that car think that the spectator is thinking? Imagine you're trying to make a left turn onto a busy road. Car after car rolls past, keeping you trapped as your frustration rises. Finally, a generous driver decelerates enough to create a gap. A check of the traffic from the opposite…

Social networks have struggled to figure out how to handle issues like threats of violence and the presence of hate groups on their platforms. But a new study suggests that attempts to limit the latter run up against a serious problem: the networks formed by hate group members are remarkably resilient, and they will migrate…

Enlarge / Skynet light? The Tianjin-controlled bike stalks one of its creators. We tend to think of AI as a monolithic entity, but it's actually developed along multiple branches. One of the main branches involves performing traditional calculations but feeding the results into another layer that takes input from multiple calculations and weighs them before…

Enlarge / A Tribot leaps ahead of its peers. Robots have traditionally been roughly humanoid in form, which has some obvious advantages, in that the robots are better able to integrate into a human-designed environment. But there are lots of environments that aren't human designed, and researchers have been experimenting with robotic forms that look…

Enlarge / Representation of some of the behaviors developed by the FTW algorithm. Deep Mind Google's AI subsidiary Deep Mind has built its reputation building systems that learn to play games by playing each other, starting with little more than the rules and what constitutes a win. That Darwinian approach of improvement through competition has…

There's a steady flow of reports regarding the failures of the US education system. Read the right things and you'll come away convinced that early grades fail to teach basic skills, later grades fail to prepare students for college, and colleges students fail so much that they can't cope with the world outside the campus…

Enlarge / Starting from random play and knowing just the game rules, AlphaZero defeated a world champion program in the games of Go, chess, and shogi (Japanese chess). DeepMind Technologies, Ltd. Google's DeepMind—the group that brought you the champion game-playing AIs AlphaGo and AlphaGoZero—is back with a new, improved, and more-generalized version. Dubbed AlphaZero, this…

Treating patients effectively involves a combination of training and experience. That's one of the reasons that people have been excited about the prospects of using AI in medicine: it's possible to train algorithms using the experience of thousands of doctors, giving them more information than any single human could accumulate. This week has provided some…
