“We need fundamental additions to this toolbox we have created to reach machines that operate at the level of true human understanding,” Dr. Bengio said. Though these systems have undeniably accelerated the progress of artificial intelligence, they are still a very long way from true intelligence. But Drs. Hinton, LeCun, and Bengio believe that new ideas will come.Read More
“On our chip we bring the data as close as possible to the processing units, and move the data as little as possible,” Vivienne Sze. When run on an ordinary GPU, neural networks fetch the same image data multiple times. The MIT chip has 168 processing engines, each with its own dedicated memory nearby.Read More
Led by Hugo Larochelle and Matthew Jackson, from the Canadian Institute For Advanced Research, a team of international scientists and technologists are making the case for the creation of a new scientific discipline termed machine behaviour. This, they argue, is necessary to advance our understanding of how artificial intelligence will affect society, culture, the economy and politics.Read More
Meet Partpic: After being licensed by a manufacturing company, PartPic obtains 360 degree photos and metadata of every part in the company’s inventory. A user can then can takes a photo of a specific part and PartPic’s software automatically identifies the name and model number of that part.Read More

Conservation Metrics goal is to improve conservation by providing powerful new tools to monitor wildlife status, distribution, and population trends. They provide rigorous data for impact assessments, cost-effective tools for measuring ecological changes after restoration and management actions or development projects.Read More
“The broad goal is to become the emotion layer of the Internet,” says Affectiva co-founder Rana el Kaliouby, a former MIT postdoc who invented the technology. “We believe there’s an opportunity to sit between any human-to-computer, or human-to-human interaction point, capture data, and use it to enrich the user experience.”Read More
Tony Jebara and colleagues at Columbia University will work with oceanographers to understand what has caused an unusual plankton-like species to rapidly invade the Arabian Sea food chain, threatening fisheries that sustain more than 100 million people living at the sea's edge.Read More
Nervana Systems wants to make deep learning more accessible by developing custom hardware built to process all that data. Hear their latest developments from CEO Naveen Rao in a panel session at the summit.Read More
"The easiest place for Amazon to bring its expertise to bear is in the warehouses, because that's where Amazon really excels," Hawkins said. "If they can reduce costs, they can show that on the store shelves and move Whole Foods away from the Whole Paycheck image."Read More
