The lullaby sounds like it came from outer space, naturally.
Matthew Shifrin's dream of LEGO kits for the blind is a reality thanks to the Austrian Research Institute For Artificial Intelligence.
Its telemedicine platform uses virtual robots as online doctors and nurses.
Mark Zuckerberg is hailing A.I.'s ability to "save lives," but not everyone is giving this move a "like."
AI might have great potential to help humanity in profound ways; however, it's very important to regulate it.
More than 40 per cent of jobs could be wiped out in next 10 to 20 years, on par with what happened during the Great Recession.
"Toronto has emerged as an important hub of artificial intelligence research ..."
In an increasingly automated world, it is the qualities that make us most human that will be valued highest in the workplace of the future. And the liberal arts - also known as humanities - may well offer the clearest path to success.
Thirty years ago, robots might have seemed limited to science fiction novels, but even today there are many industries that have seen the shift towards automation take hold. AI is already impacting our workforce -- and the changes are likely just getting started.
As the founder of Microsoft, there are few people on the planet who have helped to guide technological progression (at least in the realm of computing) as much as Gates over the course of his 42-year career.

I always look forward to the TIFF madness that descends in Toronto every year -- the celebs, the premieres, the parties, and
The truth is that AI is getting more advanced -- now able to operate in extremely complex scenarios. As AIs start to make decisions in the real world, the stakes for human beings have skyrocketed -- increasing both potential and risk.
Machine learning, and a more advanced technology called deep learning, are types of artificial intelligence that allow a computer to learn information based on the data it is given. Essentially, the more information the computer is given, the better it can learn -- and in the case of platforms like Spotify or Netflix, the more interaction you have with the program, the better it can recommend music, movies, or TV shows that you'll like.
These innovations are bound to change our lives forever. From the AOL Partner Studio
