All those neurones: if only a machine could really think like a human.
Computers today are fast and powerful but they still can't think like a human when it comes to some tasks we find easy. That's why tech companies are turning to neuroscience for help.
Smart machines are about to usher in the age of Industry 4.0.
One down, two to go: Google’s artificial intelligence program AlphaGo wins the first game of Go against Chinese grandmaster player Ke Jie, in May 2017.
The artificial intelligence that beat a world master at the game of Go is now to be directed at more complex global problems. So what can we expect?
Ready for AI?
While there is currently interest interest in artificial intelligence, it offers limited achievements, such as the autonomous car. Tomorrow, machines will learn alone and forge solutions.
How can a machine understand who said what?
Important advances have been made in the areas of automatic language processing and emotional computing, and that could have big implications for business.
A man was recently sent to prison for six years at least in part by the recommendation of a private company’s secret proprietary software.

Born in the 1950s, the concept of an artificial neural network has progressed considerably. Today, known as "deep learning", its uses have expanded to many areas, including finance.
Self-driving cars need to ‘see’ what’s going on around them.
For a driverless car to be safer than one driven by a person it must know what's going on around it. But making a system that can "see" is a challenge for tech companies.
It’s a good idea to keep an eye out for possible signs of AI.

The computers of tomorrow are being taught to learn, reason and recognise emotions.
Computers are taking over our jobs, but this doesn't have to be a bad thing.
Spectators in South Korea look on as AlphaGo takes on Go champion Lee Se-dol.
A machine has bested us at yet another intellectually challenging game. It shows artificial intelligence is progressing rapidly, but it doesn't mean humans are redundant quite yet.
According to creationists, the eyes of the great horned owl cannot be expained by Darwinian evolution.
