Artificial intelligence (AI, also machine intelligence, MI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence (NI) displayed by humans and other animals. In computer science AI research is defined as the study of “intelligent agents”: any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.

The trouble with Smart Contracts

The government of Tennessee now officially recognizes Smart Contracts. That’s great news if we speak in terms of the publicity blockchain will receive. By virtue of such events, the Blockchain technology and all that’s related to it are drawing closer to becoming a standard way of how things work. However, the practice shows that the [...]

Introducing krispNet DNN, a deep learning model for real-time noise suppression

Last month, 2Hz introduced an app called krisp which was featured on the Nvidia website. It uses deep learning for noise suppression and is powered by krispNet Deep Neural Network. krispNet is trained to recognize and reduce background noise from real-time audio and yields clear human speech. 2Hz is a company which builds AI-powered voice [...]

Facebook launched Horizon, its first open source reinforcement learning platform for large-scale products and services, yesterday. The workflows and algorithms in Horizon have been built on open source frameworks such as PyTorch 1.0, Caffe2, and Spark. This is what makes Horizon accessible to anyone who uses RL at scale. “We developed this platform to bridge [...]
