A new artificial intelligence flight combat system dubbed ALPHA has taken on one of the Air Force’s top tactical experts and won. Retired USAF Colonel Gene Lee — an experienced combat instructor with “considerable fighter aircraft expertise” — was repeatedly shot down during engagements with ALPHA in a high-fidelity air combat simulation. Lee called his computerized opponent “the most aggressive, responsive, dynamic and credible AI I’ve seen to date.”
After many false starts, artificial intelligence has taken off. Will it cause mass unemployment or even destroy mankind? History can provide some helpful clues, says Tom Standage
nucl.ai helps you apply Artificial Intelligence techniques into your applications, with a particular focus on Creative Industries such as games, visual effects, simulation, training, interactive toys, assistants, etc. The nucl.ai Conference takes place each year in Vienna/Austria, and we provide online courses on a regular basis too.
Artificial Neural Networks have spurred remarkable recent progress in image classification and speech recognition. But even though these are very useful tools based on well-known mathematical methods, we actually understand surprisingly little of why certain models work and others don’t. So let’s take a look at some simple techniques for peeking inside these networks.
Except Sunspring isn’t the product of Hollywood hacks—it was written entirely by an AI. To be specific, it was authored by a recurrent neural network called long short-term memory, or LSTM for short. At least, that’s what we’d call it. The AI named itself Benjamin.

Google can see a future where robots help us unload the dishwasher and sweep the floor. The challenge is making sure they don’t inadvertently knock over a vase — or worse — while doing so.
AMI is a program at Google that brings together artists and engineers to realize projects using Machine Intelligence. Works are developed together alongside artists’ current practices and shown at galleries, biennials, festivals, or online.
