Woebot is designed to identify, evaluate and treat mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and stress disorders based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), one of the most widely used mental health treatment frameworks.
At the RE•WORK AI Assistant Summit San Francisco yesterday, research scientists and engineers from Amazon, Apple and Google spoke on how they are addressing challenges and evolving their conversational AI systems.
CES exhibitors promoted everything from AI-powered vehicles to smart refrigerators and robot puppies. But the tech driving these diverse products was the same: the virtual assistant, a conversational AI that can understand human speech and generate humanlike responses.
It’s no surprise that tech companies are eager to stay abreast of AI developments. When they’re not luring AI talents with huge compensation packages, they’re on the lookout for AI startups suitable for acquisition.
Engineers have long struggled to teach robots how to perform actions that appear simple by human standards. Former OpenAI research scientist Peter Chen believes the solution is transforming such robots into teachable apprentices.
NIPS has become the world’s leading conference on machine learning and computational neuroscience, with 8,000 attendees flocking to Long Beach, California this week for NIPS 2017, the most popular yet.
Google’s DeepMind has once again surprised the machine learning community, this time with the introduction of AlphaZero — a new algorithm that can quickly surpass human board game performance through reinforcement learning self-play.
At last week’s Collaborative Robotics and Advanced Vision Conference in San Jose, John Petry from Cognex stressed the need for robotic technology companies to provide maintainable deep learning-based solutions for their manufacturing customers.
Machines have already beaten humans in image recognition accuracy, but they are also susceptible to errors. Last Friday, Vietnamese company Bkav announced they had outsmarted the AI-powered image recognition machine that unlocks the new iPhone X.
The success AI has achieved in image recognition has prompted tech companies to explore the new field of video understanding, in which machines are trained to answer questions like “Who is in this video?” or “What are the cats in the video doing?”
UC Berkley Professor David Wagner delivered a keynote speech to open the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) 2017. The top tier computer security and privacy conference was held in Dallas, USA.
