Science does not stand still and is constantly evolving. And one of its surprising innovations is the neural network. Thanks to them, people have simplified a large number of tasks that have taken on new technologies. And how it works, what they do, and whether we are threatened with the uprising of machines – learn from this material.
What is a neural network
A neural network is a system of interconnected processes working on a single task. It is able to work in a group and take into account previous experience and thus achieve great success
Neural networks are an ordered system of processes interacting with each other. Each of them has to deal with incoming and outgoing signals. Signals are received and transmitted to each neuron, and this unites them into one network.
Using the group mechanism of work, as well as a clearly defined algorithm that takes into account previous experience, neural networks can perform quite difficult and complex work. This makes them look like a human brain (albeit primitive)
Painting neural networks
Neural networks are able not only to draw themselves but also to combine 2 photos into one!
Yes, now neural networks can act as full-fledged representatives in modern art. A striking example of this was shown by Stanford student Robert Barratt, who trained in neural network drawing.
True, he started from another - first, by downloading about six thousand lines from Kanye West to a computer, he taught artificial intelligence how to write a rap. Then Robert downloaded a lot of different photos from the Internet. On their basis, the neural network and created a portrait of a fictional person.
I must say that the picture turned out pretty low-quality, but for the first attempt it turned out well. Surprisingly, after a while, they were able to sell it at auction for a little less than half a million dollars.
You may have seen similar cars: not only Google or Audi is testing the drones, but also, Yandex
In the future, we hope that we will not have to drive ourselves. After all, this will create a system of unmanned vehicle control. And our super-technological neural networks will help us in this.
At the moment, several large automotive companies like Audi or Tesla are engaged in similar developments. In the same area, they study the work of Uber and Google neural networks.
With the help of a neural network system, a car without a driver can distinguish between road markings, signs, pedestrians and other cars, making a decision on how to pave the way.
Very soon, the facts of corruption will be able to search and install not a person, but a computer!
The main thing that initially sharpened neural networks – is the recognition of different images. In particular, they can display statistics and build a logical link between events. Or documents that were useful to Spanish scientists.
On the basis of neural networks, they created a special program that through the analysis of various official documents can establish facts of corruption. This helps to control crime in many provincial regions.
Also, neural networks help to recognize fraud with credit cards of people and are often used in the banking sector.
This is how Google translator works today - there is an instant auto-translation feature!
Neural networks are now actively used by Google – one of the leading companies for the introduction of new technologies. And that's why they made a new function in their translator – instant translation of text in real-time using a special algorithm and neural networks.
To do this, you just need to point the smartphone camera at the text. The neural network processes each character separately, even despite the poor quality, blur, sophisticated font. After the system quickly shifts the signs into words, connects the words into sentences, and the person instantly gets a ready translation.
With such rapidly developing technologies, it is quite real people's fears that the uprising of machines may begin. But it seems that this is still far. The level of development of the most powerful network does not exceed the level of a five-year-old child. Yes, and we do not have large batteries, so it's enough to pull out the outlet to win
