Current AI Research

Recent A.I. Research

Recent research into AI is wielding some fascinating discoveries. Researchers have found that adding noise (random signals) to simulated neural networks can produce ‘creativity’ in a machine. Stephen Thaler, CEO of Imagination Engines, Inc. has patented a program he calls a ‘Creativity Machine’. This program uses noise to disrupt signals in a rigid, rule based neural network, causing the creation of new data. Thaler fed his software lots of data about different toothbrush designs and performance levels, which resulted in a brand new toothbrush design, now known as the Oral-B Cross Action toothbrush. This is one of the first consumer products that has been invented by a machine!

  1. Hi,
    I have been playing with vrml and X3d now for about 10 years.
    Some of my projects have been for work at the national lab I work for (sorry can’t let you see those) but I have some others I will let you see in a bit.
    My question for you guys is what browser extensions do you use? I have found that there are none that will do everything and few hat do all of the things i want to do.
    I use cortona for vrml 95 and vrml 1. For X3d and use with javascript for ajax3d I find that only flux3d is able to handle it without crashing.
    ajax3d allows better access to databases and inputs from things like data sampling (for do 3d animation of a sampled process or plant status in real time.)
    For 3d input in my worlds I have experimented with using a P5 glove as well and a 6 degrees of freedom ball mouse.

  2. What robot arm?

  3. Excuse me, I would like to know what company made the small robot arm.
