Nov 11 – 2015 – Artificial Intelligence can learn Human Language(s)




The ANNABELL (Artificial Neural Network with Adaptive Behavior Exploited for Language Learning) model is a cognitive architecture entirely made up of interconnected artificial neurons. A group of researchers from the University of Sassari (Italy) and the University of Plymouth (UK) have developed an artificial model made up of two million interconnected neurones to map a system of the human brain essentially.

Summary: A group of researchers has developed a cognitive model, made up of two million interconnected artificial neurons, able to learn to communicate using human language starting from a state of ‘tabula rasa’, only through communication with a human interlocutor. This research sheds light on the neural processes that underlie the development of language.

This model can learn human languages from a blank slate. Thats right, it needs no previous knowledge to understand us. It essentially learns; like a human.

Microsoft has continued to insist that Windows 10 users enjoy full privacy and can always choose to turn of the data collection options in settings.

Windows 10 tracks how users use the operating system and sends all the data back to Microsoft. Lovely. Opt-out son.
