artificial intelligenceQuantum Artificial Neural Network Model with Exponential Speedup

Researchers have proposed a model for perceptrons to be directly implemented on near-term quantum processing devices, and we have experimentally tested it on a 5-qubits IBM quantum computer based on superconducting technology. Our algorithm presents an exponential advantage over classical …

artificial intelligenceAI Common Sense Reasoning

Today’s machine learning systems are more advanced than ever, capable of automating increasingly complex tasks and serving as a critical tool for human operators. Despite recent advances, however, a critical component of Artificial Intelligence (AI) remains just out of reach …

artifiicial intelligenceAmazon’s AI recruiting software was biased against women

Amazon’s new AI recruiting engine did not like women. Amazon had a team working since 2014 for AI software to review job applicants’ resumes with the aim of mechanizing the search for top talent. The hiring tool used artificial intelligence …

artificial intelligencePre-building capability for a AI system

The concept of innateness is rarely discussed in the context of artificial intelligence. When it is discussed, or hinted at, it is often the context of trying to reduce the amount of innate machinery in a given system. Gary Marcus …
