A team of scientists has developed an algorithm that captures our learning abilities, enabling computers to recognize and draw simple visual concepts that are mostly indistinguishable from those created by humans. The work, which appears in the latest issue of the journal Science, marks a significant advance in the field—one that dramatically shortens the time it takes computers to “learn” new concepts and broadens their application to more creative tasks.   “Our results show that by reverse engineering how people think about a problem, we can develop better algorithms,” explains...
IBM Watson Visual Recognition
Vision is one of the most powerful senses we have. As humans – most of us experience the world through our eyes. We are experts at instantly interpreting complex visual information into common language that we can share and understand. Vision is a powerful gift and a privilege, one that we often take for granted. Today, it is my pleasure to introduce a major step forward– the ability for IBM Watson Visual Recognition beta service to learn from custom visual content. It’s now possible to train Visual Recognition to become an expert on custom trained natural scene images. Use Visual Recognition...

The future of human-to-machine interaction will be a move away from touch screen technology to systems which anticipate natural movements and can be controlled by gestures, voice and ambient communication, according to global design and innovation consultancy Fjord. Originating in 2001 with a focus on digital media, the company aimed to go beyond using digital for marketing communications, to focusing on services that people want and need in their lives. In 2013, the company was acquired by Accenture and has since grown, so now Fjord within Accenture Interactive has expanded to 18 locations...
When we started Thalmic Labs in 2012, our goal was simple: to give humans superpowers. With our first product, the Myo armband, we wanted to push technology forward. We invited third-party developers from around the world to make their dreams a reality with Myo, giving them access to SDKs and raw data to bring applications to life. To us, the Myo armband was our first step down a long path in the direction of changing the future of computing. We had dreams of the impact that Myo could have in the world of prosthetics, but were unaware that anyone was turning these dreams into reality....
