Nabyl’s Weekly Digital Age Insights – Episode 20

By June 3, 2019 Insight

In Episode 20 of my weekly update, I’m sharing stories and insight around neural networks, the use of AI in the business of film, and sensors and AI to recognize objects through touch.

1. DeepMind’s AI can defeat human players in Quake III Arena’s Capture the Flag mode

Some of the most prolific AI research in the world is currently being conducted and applied by London-founded and Google-acquired DeepMind. You may remember DeepMind as the creators of AlphaGo, the first computer program to defeat a Go world champion in the landmark 2016 achievement watched by over 200 million people worldwide. As DeepMind aims to ‘solve intelligence’, its latest applied research uses a convolutional neural network (a type of algorithm) modeled after the visual cortex.

2. MIT’s sensor-packed glove helps AI identify objects by touch

As AI continues to interact with other exponential technologies, its use with sensors is creating exciting opportunities. Research shows that the sensor market is expected to hit close to $280B by 2025. With a low-cost glove packed with over 500 sensors, an AI system has been developed to recognize objects through touch alone.

3. Hollywood Is Quietly Using AI To Help Decide Which Movies To Make

I have previously discussed the many different industries that are being evolved as a result of AI, and the different parts of the value chain within those industries where AI is being used. Within the value chain of Hollywood and movie creation, there is a compelling movement to leverage historical data and AI in the business of film.
