We’ve received confirmation that JWT New York has brought in Bajibot alum Jeffrey Castellano, who specializes in artificial intelligence and works on facial recognition technology, as its creative technology director. No word if this is a newly created position or if Castellano is replacing anyone as of yet, but we’ll let you know. Show More Summary
With much of our attention focused the rise of advanced artificial intelligence, few consider the potential for radically amplified human intelligence (IA). It’s an open question as to which will come first, but a technologically boosted brain could be just as powerful — and just as dangerous – as AI. We spoke to a leading futurist to learn more.

Despite Will Smith's aversion to technology in iRobot, there's really nothing to worry about the current and near-future crop of artificial intelligence products coming our way. In fact, many of them are designed to make our lives easier. Such is the case with a future product from Visteon called HABIT. It stands for Human Bayesian Intelligence...
Baxter is a humanoid robot that is designed to work safely alongside people on factory production lines. It can be trained in less than 30 minutes by applying common sense and by adapting to the environment.
Google and NASA joined forces to establish the Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab that to research artificial intelligence using quantum computers. The lab will use a D-Wave 2 computer that is priced at around $15 million.

Would you put your life in the hands, wait a minute here, robots and artificial intelligence basically do not have any kind of hands to speak of, right? Like I was asking, would you be willing to place your life [...] Like It, +1, Tweet It, Pin It Original content from Ubergizmo.
Skynet comes across as a resourceful artificial intelligence. After all, if it's clever enough to send someone back in time to wipe out an enemy before they're born, it's not hard to believe it could see the potential in Lego Technic when it comes to building an army. Particularly when we've just shown it how. Read more...
A new Quantum Artificial Intelligence lab is the latest customer for D-Wave's supposed quantum computer
Google said Thursday it is establishing a Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab to trigger the next phase of machine learning with the power of quantum computers. The efforts could trickle down to ordinary people.
The new Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab (QAIL), housed at NASA's Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley and staffed by Google and NASA scientists, has become the second lab in the world to own a quantum computer. As the name suggests,...Show More Summary
