Google has launched a new website called AI Experiments, which offers curious minds a peek into the technology that is based on machine learning.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the next big thing in the field of technology and with Google and its products like Google Allo, you can see for yourself the power of AI. The company has launched a new website called AI Experiments which allows gives you a peek into some of its most experimental projects. One doesn’t need to be a certified engineer to test the web apps. These projects are aimed at offering users a glimpse into the functioning of neural networks with the help of fun games.

The concept of artificial intelligence and machine learning which is at the heart of Internet of Things is very erudite for a regular consumer. Google intends to change that with its AI Experiments where it has multiple games and puzzles powered by artificial intelligence. The platform is open source, which means if you start exploring AI and want to build something of your own for the world to see, Google could showcase it on the website. Currently, there are a set of simple experiments which allow users to explore the technology through pictures, drawings music, language, and more.

According to Google, the idea behind open-sourcing the platform is to make the technology more accessible to people irrespective of whether they have a background in machine learning or not. It is also aimed at those curious minds who are interested in the technology but lack the technical know-how. The website includes open-source code and resources to help interested people get started.

The site currently offers hands-on demos that allow users to interact with projects which have been created by Google researchers. A project called ‘Quick, Draw!’ is a game that guesses the object you are drawing using a neural net. For example, if you are drawing a fan or a bicycle, the game tries to guess what the object could be. Another project, called ‘ AI Duet’, applies the power of AI to music. Once you play a few notes on a computer-connected keyboard, the algorithm plays a few notes of its own based on what you played to perform a duet.

There are also a couple of apps which show off Google’s progress with AI. The ‘Giorgio Cam’, similar to the guessing game, tries to identify objects which are placed in front of a smartphone camera and turns them into lyrics to a song. A second app called ‘Thing Translator’, uses Google’s translation technology to translate objects you point at into different languages. For example, if you don’t know what a glass is called in Japanese, the app could translate the object for you in the language to help you understand.

The AI Experiments website further opens into Google’s other projects including Chrome Experiments, Android Experiments, and Arts& Culture Experiments. All these experiments are user- generated creative experiments such as the Giant Emoji, which translates your facial expressions into a large emoji displayed on a screen. Under the Arts & Culture experiments, a project titled Free Fall, uses mathematical formulas to place artworks in a 3D environment, where one can choose to visualize what a cultural big bang might look like, or travel through the sea of artworks decade by decade.

The company also added a new feature to its Translate app with the use of Neural Machine Translation. The Google Translate is primarily focused on using Phase-Based Machine Translation as the key algorithm. With the Neural Machine Translation, the app will now be able to translate whole sentences at a time and not just in parts. As of now, not all the 108 languages on Google Translate will be equipped with Neural Machine Translation. The system will work only on eight major languages which include English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Turkish. The system will soon be rolled out to the remaining 103 languages and other platforms where Google Translate can be accessed.

Amazon is gearing up for the Christmas season by allowing customers to get instant vouchers for trading their unwanted possessions.

The U.S. retail giant has long-offered a trade-in option in exchange for gift card credit, but now — with Christmas just 40 days away — its new ‘Instant Payment’ service lets you get your money right away… before you’ve even sent the item over. That down for its previous policy of 10 days.

There’s a small catch, the instant payment service is initially live for video games and related accessories only. But it is very easy to use.

Simply submit details of the item/items that you wish to return, after which gift card credit is immediately dispatched. You then have seven days to mail the item to Amazon, via a UPS location, using a printable, prepaid shipping label that is provided on the Amazon website.

Amazon stressed that trade-in values vary based on the condition of the item in question, but some rough prices for popular gaming products are as follows:

  • Nintendo Wii U Console: up to $150
  • Sony PlayStation 4 500GB Console: up to $170
  • Microsoft Xbox One 500GB: up to $115
  • FIFA 17: up to $25
  • Paper Mario Color Splash: up to $30
  • Gears of War 4: up to $26

The initiative will welcomed by many customers as the costly present-buying season approaches, but don’t bank on being able to spend your trade-in cash on the hottest thing in gaming now: an NES Classic. The much-sought-after Nintendo console is, well, much sought after… with its first batch selling out on Amazon last week in a matter of seconds. Luckily Amazon has plenty of other items on display.

More details on Amazon Instant Payment are here.
