    Within a decade, China will overtake the United States as global leader in artificial intelligence, and the two nations will square off as “AI superpowers,” forcing smaller countries to align behind them in rival techno-blocs. That's the alarming prospect sketched by former Google China chief Kai-Fu Lee in AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order , a provocative book released this week.

  • DeepMind's AI will learn inside Unity's video game worlds

    20 days ago - By Fast Company

    Unity's AI boss Danny Lange explains how the Google sibling will use reinforcement learning and virtual worlds to “evolve” smarter algorithms.
    Intelligent design versus evolution isn't just a divide in people's worldviews. It's also been a divide in the artificial intelligence community. Until just a few years ago, AI was mainly about humans coding smart algorithms-from bank fraud detectors to autonomous video game characters. But with massive server farms, machine learning AI can run wild in the boundless fields of data that society generates-and often intuit algorithms faster and better...
