How Google’s AI research team has teamed up with Blizzard to further deep learning in AI

The announcement at BlizzCon 2016 that met with the most muted response was arguably the most revolutionary.

While new content for the likes of Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch, and Diablo III drew appreciative roars from the Blizzard faithful, the news that Google’s DeepMind branch—which is dedicated to developing sophisticated Intelligence—would be teaming up with the makers of Starcraft 2 to further its research on AI elicited more of a murmur.

Google AI invents its own cryptographic algorithm; no one knows how it works

by Sebastian Anthony, ARS Technica UK

Neural networks seem good at devising crypto methods; less good at code breaking.

Google Brain has created two artificial intelligence’s that evolved their own cryptographic algorithm to protect their messages from a third AI, which was trying to evolve its own method to crack the AI-generated crypto. The study was a success: the first two AIs learnt how to communicate securely from scratch. Continue reading Google AI invents its own cryptographic algorithm; no one knows how it works
