Artificial Intelligence Has a Strange New Muse: Our Sense of Smell
As a car navigates a new environment in real time — an environment that’s constantly changing, that’s full of noise and ambiguity — deep learning techniques inspired by the visual system might fall short. “Maybe we can do fantastic stuff with olfaction, too.” Random and Sparse Networks Olfaction...
Where AI and ethics meet
The field of AI ethics is generally broken into two areas: one concerning the ethics guiding humans who develop AIs, and the other machine ethics, guiding the moral behaviour of the AIs or robots themselves.

Opinion: AI For Good Is Often Bad
After speaking at an MIT conference on emerging AI technology earlier this year, I entered a lobby full of industry vendors and noticed an open doorway leading to tall grass and shrubbery recreating a slice of the African plains.
Teaching a neural network to use a calculator
Generating intermediate steps To generate intermediate steps, we modify the Mathematics Dataset generation code to procedurally generate question-intermediate step (IS) pairs, instead of the original question-answer pairs.
Top AI & Machine Learning Research Papers From 2019
Our results suggest that future work on disentanglement learning should be explicit about the role of inductive biases and (implicit) supervision, investigate concrete benefits of enforcing disentanglement of the learned representations, and consider a reproducible experimental setup covering...
The Week in Tech: Algorithmic Bias Is Bad. Uncovering It Is Good.
First, it came to light that the algorithm that calculates credit quotas for Apple’s new credit card may give higher limits to men than to women.
Algorithmic bias detection and mitigation: Best practices and policies to reduce consumer harms
Automated risk assessments used by U.S. judges to determine bail and sentencing limits can generate incorrect conclusions, resulting in large cumulative effects on certain groups, like longer prison sentences or higher bails imposed on people of color.
Within 10 Years, We’ll Travel by Hyperloop, Rockets, and Avatars
Try Hyperloop, rocket travel, and robotic avatars. Hyperloop is currently working towards 670 mph (1080 kph) passenger pods, capable of zipping us from Los Angeles to downtown Las Vegas in under 30 minutes.
