It’s been a long road, winding through swaths of government data, unstructured and unrefined, toward a new vision of public service where government anticipates the needs of its citizenry. There’s been a lot of downtime and detours in between for technology and mission to catch up with that vision.

In the race to exascale computing, it looks like the Department of Energy (DoE) will be the first to reach the pole. In a couple of years, the department plans on opening a supercomputer, known as Aurora, capable of performing a quintillion calculations per second, five times faster than the current champ. But in addition to beating the Chinese and everyone else to the exascale summit, Aurora will be significant for incorporating artificial intelligence into its repertoire, while pursuing a range of scientific and real-world problems.

Machine learning AI-min

When it comes to getting artificial intelligence systems to be more “human,” robots apparently have to learn to walk before they can run.The Pentagon’s top research arm recently hit a milestone in enabling a machine to learn without having to go through a lot of reprogramming at each stage, like they do now. And they did it with a robotic limb teaching itself to walk.

The Japanese seem to have robots that do it all. They’ve made bots that can pitch a baseball, play the violin, mimic a toddler, or even cook up some pancakes. But Japanese United Nations (U.N.) Ambassador Nobushige Takamizawa drew an ethical line in the country’s robotics development when he said today that Japan has not and will not develop fully automated weapons systems.
