Machine learning has reached the point of language creation

Machine learning refers to the way computers – really smart ones – can develop the capacity for learning on their own without programming from humans. The latest freaky development? Computers have created their own secret language. In September, Google announced that its Neural Machine Translation (GNMT) system had gone live. This uses deep learning to produce better,…

If my big-data is big enough can I create intelligence?

As the amount of news about machine learning may make you wonder if we just discovered something profoundly new, artificial intelligence, the reality is that the technology is almost as old as computing itself. It is no coincidence that Alan Turing, who is one of the most significant computer scientists of all time, began his…
