"If brains are cultivated in the laboratory, without time limit, could they ever develop a form of consciousness that surpasses human capacity? As I see it, why not?" argues neuroscientist Guillaume Thierry.
An artificial intelligence model named Pythia has an error rate of 30 percent, compared to 57 percent in humans.
"From this exploratory meta-analysis, we cautiously state that the accuracy of deep learning algorithms is equivalent to health-care professionals," researchers said in a new report.
Until now, all that could be made of the woman was the faintest trace of her outline. However, by using a neural network, computer scientists were able to bring the painting back to life.
"How does the killing machine out there on its own flying about distinguish between the 18-year-old combatant and the 18-year-old who is hunting for rabbits?," said former Google staffer Laura Nolan.
Abraham Heifets is using artifical intelligence to ensure the safety of cancer patients while they undergo treatment.
Our brains create new memories, and forget old ones, by forging and breaking connections between nerve cells. Now researchers can do something similar using a light-sensitive electronic chip.
