Here’s why Artificial Intelligence is so power-hungry

Artificial intelligence is getting more expensive to develop, and the cost is growing faster than the energy efficiency of the models. This is because they are trained many times with different structures, and the best one is selected. For example a model called Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers (BERT) used 3.3 billion words from English books...

Converging Solutions: Artificial Networks Shed Light on Human Face Recognition

Humans are almost hardwired to recognize faces. It’s important for us to tell people apart and we barely think about it. But the recognition process is far from being understood. Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel have compared how deep neural networks recognize faces and compared this with activation pattern data from...

Artificial Artificial Intelligence

Behind a successful AI there is a human doing critical work. It’s an open secret that behind the “magic” of AI tools there are large teams of people, doing things like labeling the training data to make it work. The result of their work is truly impressive: we are tricked into believing that these AIs...
