Welcome to TNW’s beginner’s guide to AI. This (currently) four part feature should provide you with a very basic understanding of what AI is, what it can do, and how it works. The guide contains articles
Datasets are the lifeblood of artificial intelligence (AI) — they’re what make models tick, so to speak. But data without corresponding annotations is, depending on the type of algorithm at play (i.e.,
Machines learning to play games by watching humans might sound like the plot of a science fiction novel, but that’s exactly what researchers at OpenAI — a nonprofit, San Francisco-based AI research company
Genome Sequencing and Gene Editing Since the illnesses an individual experiences in a lifetime are largely determined by their genetics, there has been significant interest to better understand our genetic
Most people don’t use the word algorithm every day. Many think it refers to lines of code or the latest Diplo beat. Yet, algorithms are ubiquitous and there is an increasing urgency of action around them.
