Rating Computer Science via Chess [chapter]

Kenneth W. Regan
2019 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To gear up for limited human challenge opportunities, designers of chess machines needed to forecast their skill on the human rating scale.  ...  Computer chess was originally purposed for insight into the human mind. It became a quest to get the most power out of computer hardware and software.  ...  The last point bears comparison with Moore's Law and arguments over its slowing or cessation.  ...

Mimicking Anti-Viruses with Machine Learning and Entropy Profiles

Héctor D. Menéndez, José Luis Llorente
2019 Entropy  
Our results, applied to 57 different anti-virus engines, show that we can mimic their behaviour with an accuracy close to 98% in the best case and 75% in the worst, applied on Windows' disk resident malware  ...  In this work, we show how this is indeed possible by combining entropy patterns with classification algorithms.  ...  We gratefully acknowledge the support of NVIDIA Corporation with the donation of the Titan V GPU used for this research. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

How Blue is the Sky?

Yves Frégnac
2021 eNeuro  
The recent trend toward an industrialization of brain exploration and the technological prowess of artificial intelligence algorithms and high-performance computing has caught the imagination of the public  ...  Will "it" (the digital avatar) be conscious? The Blue Brain Project (BBP) and the European flagship the Human Brain Project (HBP) have surfed on this wave for the past 10 years.  ...  In parallel, it is likely that computing with Von Neumann architecture will adapt at a faster pace to the increase of electronic components performance, miniaturization and parallelism, predicted by Moore's  ...

Programming backgammon using self-teaching neural nets

Gerald Tesauro
2002 Artificial Intelligence  
Particular emphasis is placed on programming shallow-depth search algorithms, and on TD-Gammon's doubling algorithm, which is described in print here for the first time.   ...  TD-Gammon is a neural network that is able to teach itself to play backgammon solely by playing against itself and learning from the results.  ...  Acknowledgement The author thanks Olivier Egger for providing a beta version of Snowie 3.2 used to perform the rollout analysis.  ...

This breakthrough capability is the result of Moore's law in microelectronics.  ...  Finally, advances in IR technology have been, and will continue to be, largely driven by advances in materials and in microelectronics. The latter area is advancing exponentially by Moore's Law.  ... 

Density-gradient theory: a macroscopic approach to quantum confinement and tunneling in semiconductor devices

M. G. Ancona
2011 Journal of Computational Electronics  
Remarks are also given about the underlying mathematics and numerics. A variety of applications of the theory to both quantum confinement and quantum tunneling situations are then reviewed.  ...  Public reporting burden for the collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining  ...  Andrew Brown of the University of Glasgow for generously allowing the use of Figs. 3.5.5-3.5.7 from [42] , and to Dr. Chagaan Baatar and the Office of Naval Research for funding support.  ...

Applications of memristors in conventional analogue electronics

Radu Berdan, Christos Papavassiliou, Chris Toumazou, Engineering And Physical Sciences Research Council
This platform allows for a wide range of different pulsing algorithms to be applied on individual devices, or on crossbars of memristive elements, and is used throughout this dissertation.  ...  Next, the observed volatile dynamics of memristors are exploited in two separate sequence detectors, with applications in neuromorphic engineering. Finally, the memris [...]  ...  Moore's Law.  ...

Privacy in Panopticon 2.0: applying Kant's formula of humanity to Internet privacy

Sacha Molitorisz
On the internet, ensuing challenges to privacy are further exacerbated by the ongoing dispute about what privacy is and why it matters.  ...  In response to this dispute, I argue first that privacy can be defined by reference to the notion of access, and second that privacy matters both instrumentally and non-instrumentally,for reasons of dignity  ...  The defendant challenged his sentence because he had not been allowed to see the algorithm's workings, but an appeal court found against him, holding that mere knowledge of the algorithm allowed for sufficient  ...
