This week we explore the potential to create a film from your dream and efforts to create more careful AI.

Slow and steady

Researchers at Microsoft are programming AI to give them a sense of fear, in order to be better drivers. The scientists measured four individuals’ heart rate while driving and used the “fear” signals to teach the AI. This resulted in a 25% reduction in crashes compared to non-fearful AI.

The future of brain power

A computing chip that resembles part of a brain has been developed by researchers from the University of Münster. It contains 60 synapses and is able to learn from information and identify patterns as a result. This research is an important contribution to developing computers that behave in a similar way to the human brain.
