Research Round 2.1: The Internet

The Internet Explained Alternatively referred to as the net or web, the Internet was initially developed to aid in the progress of computing technology by linking all the best academic computer centers. The Internet as we know it today first started being developed in the late 1960's with the start of ARPANET and transmitted its first message on Friday, October 29, 1969. In 1993, the Internet experienced one of its largest growths to date and today is accessible by people all over the world.Read More...

AI Part 5: AI and Self-Driving Cars Continued

What’s next? Of course, drive in traffic. Goal: stay on the track & avoid collision Problem: driving with and without other cars are two totally different problems Complicated motion is involved. This time, direct learning wouldn't work that well. Why? There are millions of driving scenes, but the computer can only respond with four types of controls: left, right, accelerate, brake. We human can do reasoning to differentiate diverse driving scenes and map them to the four actions, but...Read More...

AI Part 4: AI and Self-Driving Cars

Nowadays, Self-Driving Cars has been a very hot topic after Google, Uber and Tesla revealed their plan of achieving Driver-less Cars. In order for the machines to learn driving, the developers added Artificial Intelligence into the self-driving program. How is Artificial Intelligence learning how to drive and improve on it? First of all, Deep Learning is used. Sequences are inputted, processed, learned and divided into 4 options: Left, Right, Accelerate and decelerate (brake). Important...Read More...

AI Part 3: AI and Video Games

Artificial Intelligence (in this case, bots) played an important role in video games ever since the start of gaming history. The game, "Pong", one of the earliest arcade video games, featured an AI controlling the paddle on the opponent's side. Pac-man, another example of early video games, also had AI controlled enemy (Ghosts). So what exactly does AI do to video games? AI controlled bots, mobs and NPCs can make a difference between a well designed game and poorly designed one. Rather than...Read More...

AI Part 2: Future of AI

AI, Artificial Intelligence, is a computer program that is able to show intelligence and increase it's intelligence by learning. This time I'm going to talk about the future of AI and how it will impact our daily life. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a fascinating concept of science fiction for decades, but many researchers think we’re finally getting close to making AI a reality. NPR notes that in the last few years, scientists have made breakthroughs in “machine learning,” using...Read More...

Will A.I. Take Over?

Will A.I. take over Human race? A.I. , which stands for artificial intelligence, is a computer program that is able to show intelligence and increase it's intelligence by learning. There is a 50 percent chance that AI be able to perform all human tasks better than humans in 45 years, and all human jobs are expected to be automated within the next 120 years, according to a survey of 352 AI researchers who published at either the Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems or the...Read More...
