ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) continues to make headlines here at INQ, and last week saw Google dominating.
Google Brain, the company's AI team, revealed in a paper called 'Pixel Recursive Super Resolution' that it's found a way to enhance pixelated photos. The outfit said that, thanks to two types of neural networks, photos can be sharpened to a recognisable image with as little as 8x8 pixels to work with, bad news for bank robbers and cat burglars.
Later in the week it was claimed that Google's DeepMind AI is learning to show signs of aggression when it thinks it's not going to get its own way. Sound like anyone you know?
We've rounded up the top 10 stories from last week below. µ
