Artificial intelligence works better after a good sleep

Artificial neurons are becoming more and more like the human brain than traditional computers. This similarity becomes even more obvious, as now the artificial neurons to work more effectively needed sleep.

Moreover, as shown by a recent study, they need not a simple disconnection, and the special effects of the slow signals, similar to those seen in sleep brain.

Neural networks consist of artificial neurons that communicate with each other by signals, like a real biological neurons. Usually formed connection grows stronger, thanks to what a neural network can be trained.

In contrast to the sequential information processing in conventional computers, neural networks can process different streams of information in parallel, which makes them a powerful tool for solving tasks such as image recognition and speech. Curiously, AI has “inherited” from the human brain and the need for sleep, so necessary to our health and well-being.

In a new study conducted by experts at Los Alamos national laboratory (USA), it was found that the neurons become less stable after prolonged operation. It happened during the uncontrolled development of AI system dictionary. Artificial intelligence is “overextended” from the fact that in the process of identifying similarities between objects for their classification, he had not been provided clear examples for comparison.

To help the networks to maintain their activity, the researchers subjected them to the impact of different types of white noise (noise spectral components which are evenly distributed over the entire range of frequencies involved – approx. ed Techcult).

It is best to “pacify” neurons came the so-called Gaussian noise signals, including a wide range of frequencies and amplitudes. Most interesting is that these are the same types of waves that propagate through the human brain during the recovery phase of slow sleep.

Physicists have learned to turn plastic bottles in supercapacitors

Scientists from the University of California, riverside have developed a technology to produce components for supercapacitors from regular waste. We are talking about polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is made most of plastic bottles. This material is from an economic point of view is significantly superior to high-tech raw materials, like graphene or carbon nanotubes. […]

Looks like a screwdriver of the XXI century

Recently Techcult wrote about the drill of the XXI century with a touchscreen and lasers. But the screwdriver is traditionally considered to be more simple, reliable and very straightforward tool. What similar high-tech screwdriver advanced Italian production? And it is similar to the Kinetic device Driver. Kinetic Driver designed by the Italian designer Giacomo Di […]

Our Solar system is most similar to space croissant

The sun emits powerful electromagnetic winds that envelop the planet in our solar system like a giant bubble. This magnetic bubble is called the heliosphere and protects the planet from dangerous space radiation. Scientists have long believed that the heliosphere is in the form of a comet – with a distinct nose and long flowing […]

Some homemade masks turned out to be more dangerous than no

Despite the fact that the industry has recovered from the shock of the first days of the pandemic COVID-19 and now produces enough facial masks of different types, most people in the world due to various reasons use homemade versions. Everyone understands that they are less effective than professional medical model, but the question is: […]
