Eric Schmidt provides support to MIT Intelligence Quest

Alphabet senior advisor and former executive chairman and CEO of Google Eric Schmidt and his wife, Wendy, have pledged to help fund MIT’s recently announced intelligence initiative, the MIT Intelligence Quest. The Schmidts’ gift will help launch the initiative with unrestricted support for the new MIT Intelligence Quest Fund, which serves to support the critical and evolving needs of the initiative. Announced in February, the MIT Intelligence Quest is an Institute-wide initiative that will advance both human and machine intelligence research to discover the foundations of human intelligence and drive the development of technological tools that can positively influence virtually every aspect of society through new research and approaches, as well as developing and advancing the technologies of intelligence. “There is tremendous enthusiasm from our faculty to advance bold research initiatives around AI, and the Schmidts’ generous gift will enable us to kick-start the MIT Intelligence Quest with real vigor,” Continue reading Eric Schmidt provides support to MIT Intelligence Quest

Skiing Robots Race Down Slopes, Warm Our Hearts

We check in with the Ski Robot Challenge organizers for details, winners, and the adorable battle cries of each competitor Photo: Ski Robot ChallengeThe autonomous skiing robot Taekwon V from Minirobot. The Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, ended late last month, and the most popular event (in our opinion, anyway) was the robotic ski competition. An admittedly hilarious video of the event went around last week, but we checked in with the Ski Robot Challenge organizers at the Korea Institute for Robot Industry Advancement for details, winners, and the adorable battle cries of each competitor. Here’s an overview of the event, from the  Korea Herald : And here are the rules: Each robot must be humanoid, with a minimum of 15 degrees of freedom including functional elbows and knees; Each robot must be at least 50cm tall (measured from foot to shoulder); Robots are required to use both skis and Continue reading Skiing Robots Race Down Slopes, Warm Our Hearts

Feeding Frenzy for AI Engineers Gets More Intense

Demand for software engineers with AI expertise continues to increase, while supply flattens Photo: Delmaine Donson/Getty Images In December, Bloomberg reported that desperate demand for software engineers who know how to build artificial intelligence systems turned a previously low-key academic event “into a recruiting frenzy more akin to the National Football League’s draft day.” Meanwhile, the Tencent Research Institute released a report indicating that there are currently only 300,000 AI researchers and practitioners worldwide, but the demand is for millions. Earlier this month, Element AI set out to assess the AI talent pool. Based on LinkedIn postings, conference proceedings, and other data, the firm concluded that there are 22,000 PhD-educated researchers in the entire world who are capable of working in AI research and applications—but only 3,074 candidates currently looking for work. And this week, job search firm Indeed weighed in, reporting that demand for engineers with AI expertise has Continue reading Feeding Frenzy for AI Engineers Gets More Intense
