Emulators, based on a form of AI called machine learning, skip the laborious reproduction of nature.
But creating training data for them requires running the full simulation many times—the very thing the emulator is meant to avoid.
“While it’s great that the DIB principles affirm the import of international law, there are a number of areas where it is still unclear what international law requires for AI systems or weapon systems with increasingly autonomous capabilities,” she said.

The European Union is set to release new regulations for artificial intelligence that are expected to focus on transparency and oversight as the region seeks to differentiate its approach from those of the United States and China.
fastai includes: A new type dispatch system for Python along with a semantic type hierarchy for tensors A GPU-optimized computer vision library which can be extended in pure Python An optimizer which refactors out the common functionality of modern optimizers into two basic pieces, allowing...
To that end, besides the self-driving cars (now a standalone company, Waymo) and internet balloons (Loon), X has built delivery drones (Wing), contact lenses that measure glucose in the tears of diabetics (Verily) and technology to store electricity using molten salt (Malta).
Using a computer vision technique known as neural style transfer (NST), the researchers were able to reconstitute the ghostly image of a woman hidden underneath, which was later painted over by Picasso to create The Old Guitarist (reusing canvases being one way that impoverished artists could save...
