An unusual medical case report suggests that the sleeping aid Ambien is actually the key to lifting a man with brain damage out of the coma-like state he’s been in for the past eight years. A...
Scientists at MIT developed a new AI algorithm that can actually control an anesthetized patient’s level of unconsciousness during a medical procedure like surgery. Trained on simulated patients...
Artificial intelligence and deep learning are drawing patterns out of the seeming noise in big data, and it’s changing our world in broad and subtle ways: Finding practical uses for holograms...
It’s not every day that we hare at Futurism come across a paper that attempts to redefine reality. In a preprint paper uploaded to arXiv in early August, Vitaly Vanchurin, physics professor at the...
In order to show off how sophisticated language-processing artificial intelligence has gotten, the newspaper The Guardian commissioned an op-ed written by the algorithm GPT-3. GPT-3, the latest and...
The bible just got its first update in ages, this time at the hands of an artificial intelligence algorithm that churns out bizarre scripture. The project, aptly dubbed AI Jesus by engineer and...
Oliver Taylor doesn’t exist: college student and writer of that name is actually a façade generated by deepfakes, but that hasn’t stopped newspapers from publishing his work. Whoever’s behind the...
It’s not an exaggeration to say that when it comes to the future of human progress, nothing is more important than Artificial Intelligence (AI). Although often thought to only be associated with...
More people are working from home now than ever, which in turn means that more meetings and calls are being disrupted by those inevitable bursts of ambient home sounds from pets, kids, spouses, and...
You probably remember the neural network that generates photos of people who don’t actually exist. You might even remember the one that spits out photos of nonexistent cats, or the one that whips...
