Machine horizon: Three of the most exciting AI developments

As a topic, AI’s popularity tends to rise and fall. Some have even argued that it rises at times when there’s a lull in tangible technological innovations, perhaps to give the geeks something to talk about. In the past, AI has often been a blank sheet onto which we project our fears and fantasies of the future. We get excited about artificial intelligence or we get fearful about it, yet those hopes or threats have always felt abstract and faraway. This time, though, it feels different. This time, we’re excited about AI because AI seems genuinely exciting. Deep neural networks are now allowing for proper machine learning (some might even say intelligence), rather than pre-programming or algorithmic variations. Google DeepMind’s victory over Go world champion Lee Sedol was quite rightly…
