5G mobile broadband will save us
Posted: 22 March 2018

Not if you believe Nokia Networks, who say that it's not the speed alone that is impressive, but the low latency makes feedback for active system control possible. Think self-driving cars and other things that need to react quickly. To prove the point they built a self-stabilising table and a rolling ball demo. Here's the video.

AlphaGo can be beaten
Posted: 14 March 2016 1 Comment

After losing several times, a grandmaster managed to beat the AI Go player, AlphaGo by surprising it with a seemingly illogical move. Perhaps that's the only way to beat AlphaGo - by behaving irrationally!

But here's the thing: AlphaGo has deep neural networks that allow it to learn from its mistakes. So every match adds to its capabilities. My prediction is that the computer will win in ...

Why everything's getting AI
Posted: 30 October 2014

"Everything that we formerly electrified we will now cognitize. This new utilitarian AI will also augment us individually as people (deepening our memory, speeding our recognition) and collectively as a species. There is almost nothing we can think of that cannot be made new, different, or interesting by infusing it with some extra IQ. In fact, the business plans of the next 10,000 startups ...

Yes, even retail is being shaped by data and algorithms. Is that a good thing? Yes and no. When data confines us to a grey world of ever-repeated relevance, self-fulfilling recommendations and predictable patterns of behaviour, then perhaps it has become a disease. For which we obviously need an 'analogue bullet'.
