A mathematical strategy called Objective Monte-Carlo helped a team of researchers teach a computer how to play the ancient and complex game called Go.

How old and young people react to the Prisoner’s Dilemma The Prisoner's Dilemma is a thought experiment where two suspects are asked to betray one another in exchange for lesser sentences. Studies show that when different people of different age groups and backgrounds are presented with a Prisoner's Dilemma, they react in different ways.
This study was the first to report on different age groups’ interactions with different people when presented with a multi-round Prisoner’s Dilemma game.
Artificial intelligence can learn to play a complex war game Reinforcement learning is a type of artificial intelligence that can teach a computer to play a simple game like Backgammon. A team of scientists recently learned that it also isn’t too bad at playing the very complex war game called Battleground.
A team of scientists recently learned that "reinforcement learning" can be used to play a very complex war game.
Can a computer learn to play Settlers of Catan? It's not easy to teach a computer to play board games with lots of rules like Settlers of Catan. This team of scientists used an algorithm callled a Monte-Carlo Tree Search to make a skilled "artificial intelligence" Catan player that learns as it goes.
At a glance, board games may seem to have no connection to artificial intelligence (AI). However, board games are quite useful when studying AI. When an AI is advanced enough to beat the best player in the world at a game like Chess or Go, it’s a huge scientific achievement. One strategy for writing an AI is called…
Researchers discovered computer-led chemical analysis of a sample is a powerful tool for searching for ET biochemistry without making assumptions about it.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is one of the most common developmental disorders diagnosed today. It affects an estimated 75 million people worldwide, and the number of cases has been gradually increasing since studies began in the 1960s. The symptoms generally include communication deficits, sensory processing…
A new way to detect ET life using chemical profiles Rather than detecting one chemical at a time, scientists taught machine learning algorithms what different mixtures of compounds from living and non-living sources “look like” to chemical analyzers. The computer then used those fingerprints to correctly identify living and non-living samples in the lab!
Researchers found a new way to tell the difference between the chemicals of life and the chemicals of non-life...using machine learning!
How “fast radio bursts” are used in the search for alien life Detecting fast radio bursts is difficult because the data is "noisy" so ruling out false positives is a current topic of study. A group of researchers improved detection using a computer method called a "convoluted neural network" that improved accuracy.

Creativity is no small task. We do our best to cultivate and cherish the imagination of young children, and struggle to maintain those senses as we get older. But what exactly is creativity? Can its rules be written down? Is there an algorithm for it? Can we teach a computer to be creative? As the maturing field of…
