When Will be the Revolution of AI? grs

Human beings are becoming better with the development of genetic engineering. But how will artificial intelligence improve and revolutionize? Yu Hu thinks it is impossible for artificial intelligence to complete the revolution of recognition, so it will be a long time before the computer can start a revolution.

The Future of Multiple Voice Speech Recognition grs

For decades science fiction movies have been imagining the future as one where humans talk to machines just as naturally as they speak to family and friends. In reality, however, using voice to interact with machines has been maddeningly frustrating, with Siri often mistaking “open up my email” for “look up some kale,” for example. This is changing. Increasingly the experience of speaking to your mobile device elicits genuine surprise when Siri or Google Now understands your request and seamlessly executes your request. Put simply, voice recognition in machines is getting very good and is going to get so good that it will completely change the way humans interact with their computing devices.

The Dream of AI grs

AI doesn’t change robots into human or humans into robots. AI is a tool used to expand our abilities; with AI we can do something which was impossible for us. The goal of AI is to help all the people improve their lives. The main characteristics can be described in three areas. First, AI should have the ability of natural human-machine interaction. Second, AI should cover some simple automatic intelligence. For example, give you recommendations based on different situation. Finally, it should collect information in different areas.

Research and Application of AI in Robotics grs

How can robots understand and communicate with humans? Turing Robots can dictate speech into words, then interpret those words to useful information. They can search their “brain” and the internet for answers, then “speak” through their speaker. The most difficult part in this process is how to recognizing the words and translating it into useful information, known as semantic analysis. This talk will discuss how Turing Robots do semantic analysis.

Zhichen (Jeff) Yu, CEO, Turing Robotics
