The Pentagon on Friday announced it would spend more than $2 billion over the next five years to advance the foundations of artificial intelligence technology.Through the AI Next initiative, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency aims to bring about so-called “third wave” AI, tools capable of human-like communication and contextual reasoning that far surpass the abilities of today’s most advanced machine-learning and AI technology.The massive investment comes as global powers like China pour significant resources into their own artificial intelligence R&D programs.“I’m proud to tell you DARPA plans to continue and increase its support for AI research, with a significant focus on the technologies that underpin a third wave of AI,” said DARPA Director Steven Walker in the announcement at the agency’s 60th anniversary conference. “Let’s … double down and commit to ensuring our country continues to create technological surprise for many more years and continues to use that surprise for a better and more secure world.”DARPA currently runs more than 20 programs to advance artificial intelligence and more than 60 others that explore ways the technology can bolster cybersecurity, share the electromagnetic spectrum and enable other breakthroughs. Under AI Next, the agency will spend the next year significantly expanding that portfolio.Today, DARPA spends about $300 million annually on its AI endeavors, and AI Next would increase funding by another $100 million per year beginning in fiscal 2019, according to DARPA Chief of Communications Jared Adams.While today’s AI programs excel in image classification and predictive analytics, they still lack the common-sense reasoning needed to truly understand the world they try to describe. Given that awareness, systems could act more as partners than tools and add novel insights instead of simply spitting out data previously crunched.In addition to exploring third wave AI, the new initiative will also look for ways to apply current technologies to solve “today’s toughest security challenges” and increase transparency into how AI tools function, Walker said.

Reinventing ourselves opens up new possibilities as our mind is more open to new experiences and new way of seeing things. In the same way that you can transform a room by adding a new paint colour, our lives can be transformed just as quickly and as easily with just as much impact. A fresh approach to how we do something helps create new energy and it fills us with an attitude of eager anticipation as we look forward to each new day.Some may view reinvention as rather false, especially when you look at celebrities who have portrayed one image and have then changed their image to present something new.

Working memory problems are one of the most common learning issues that we come across in our clinic.Working memory difficulties often co-exist with other issues, such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and AD/HD but they can also be a stand-alone problem.It can be hard to get your head around what working memory actually is, let alone how to go about reducing the impact of a working memory problem on your child’s learning.Here’s a brief overview to help to clear up some of the mystery.What is Working Memory?Most people think of memory in terms of short-term and long-term memory. So what’s so different about working memory?In a nutshell, working memory involves our ability to hold information in our mind for short periods (that’s the memory part) in order to do something with it (that’s the working part).Peter Doolittle sums it up brilliantly in this TED talk.Some examples might help:Mental ArithmeticSay you are asked to solve some addition problems without using paper and pencil. The numbers you are given to add up are 16, 12 and 23.In order to solve this problem we need to hold those three numbers in our mind, but at the same time we need to use information about how to perform arithmetic to do the required sum.Everyone might have a different way of doing this but, if you are like me, you’ll first add 16 + 12 = 28. (And you’ll also mentally double-check that answer because you don’t trust your brain to do things without a calculator these days!).Okay, so we’re halfway there.
At some point in the past few years, your dad decided to join Twitter. Perhaps Gary at work told him that Dara Ó Briain is good craic on there or, more likely, someone on TV said something that pissed him off and there was a little box at the bottom of the screen inviting him to log on and "have his say". Whatever the initial reason, it didn't take long for tweeting to become a regular part of his routine. Bored at work, he logs on most mornings to share a few zingers on the issues of the day.No topic is off limits, but some occupy his attention more than most.
When Eilish talks about her upbringing, she speaks highly of her family and her home, but her childhood neighborhood may be another story. "I grew up in Highland Park when it was very sketchy and there were lots of gunshots," she said in an interview with Music Connection. "It was fine, it wasn't horrible and miserable, and I wasn't scared for my life," she added. But, aside from the occasional gunshot, it seems that crime lived quite close to the Eilish family.Billie's mom, Maggie Baird, told a strange story about the family's neighbors in Highland Park, Los Angeles.
