How much brain do you need to be intelligence?  What is intelligence, anyways?

It’s a question that comes up a lot in AI research.

Bees and ants perform marvels as colonies, though each individual insect has barely any brain.

Plants—with no brain at all—exhibit behaviors that, by any definition, count as intelligent.

Brace yourself for a mind-bending session from the World Science Festival.

Larry Apolonio spoke at linuxfestnorthwest about the cool things you can do with a Linux server in your hose.

Last year, there were a couple of presentations on DIY IoT projects that did not rely on a cloud service, but other than home assistant, what other things can you do with a Linux Server at home?

This presentation will show some cool things you can do with a Linux Server at home.

Here’s a great round up of the top 10 Arduino projects of 2019.

It’s just not December until the “best of” or “top 10” posts start getting compiled and published.

Here’s a great overview the year’s tops AI and Data BigTech announcements.

The year 2019 was a very productive year in terms of new updates launched by tech giants. From new operating systems to open sourcing frameworks, this year was a giant step towards white boxing technologies and data democratisation.

In this article, we are compiling a list of all the major announcements in this field:

The 5th Kind has a slightly alarmist, yet interesting, look at how AI will transform our lives, society, and the nature of what it means to be human.

As we become ever more reliant on cellular phones and devices to aid in our everyday tasks; rapid development into new technologies and Artificial Intelligence is underway at an alarming rate.

Modern devices are now specifically designed to interact with us in ways that mimic a real human being. Applications such as “siri” and “google-cast” are providing the user with a human-like interaction experience. These companies are Creating Artificially intelligent machines. Machines exhibiting cognitive behaviour, with human-like intelligence.

In this Documentary we explore the race to perfect AI machinery – researchers believe that very soon a “singularity” will be created. A machine that rises beyond human control. Something uncontrollable and irreversible, resulting in catastrophic changes to human civilization.  

It’s always fun to see what the “normies” think about what AI engineers are working on. Winking smile
