What Can Neural Networks Do? Test Your Knowledge!

What Can Neural Networks Do? Test Your Knowledge!

| Brave New World

In the last few years, neural networks have been actively used in medicine, engineering, fintech, art, and literally in all areas of human activity.

Artificial intelligence helps us explore space, make discoveries, investigate the world's mysteries, and solve mathematical problems. But what else can it do?

Let's check how well you know neural networks and their capabilities. To do this, we offer you to answer ten tricky questions from Lectera! It is a great opportunity not only to test your knowledge but also to broaden your horizons.

The first trainable neural network, as close as possible to modern AI models, appeared back in the 1950s.

True

Correct! In fact, neural networks have existed since the middle of the last century.

Details below

False

Oops, you’re wrong!! Neural networks appeared much earlier. Hurry up and look at the next card!

Details below

It turns out that the first neural network appeared back in 1957. Cornell University psychologist Frank Rosenblatt created it and called it Perceptron. Although Perceptron was primitive and single-level, this neural network is called the first incarnation of an artificial intelligence system as close to its modern form as possible.

Everyone knows that hundreds and even thousands of all kinds of neural networks can perform mental work on a human level, for example, writing texts, creating images, and solving logical problems. Moreover, this year, American engineers have made such a model of artificial intelligence, which can perform any command and surpass even actual geniuses.

True

Alas, such neural networks do not exist. Click on the other card, and you'll learn something interesting!

Details below

False

Correct! You definitely know a thing or two about artificial intelligence!

Details below

Despite the rapid growth and development of artificial intelligence systems, the universal neural network has not yet been invented. For now, AGI, or artificial general intelligence, remains science fiction. But we are sure that talented IT innovators and neuro-enthusiasts will realise this idea soon!

Neural networks can read people's minds!

True

You guessed it! Such neural networks do exist.

Details below

False

You seem to underestimate neural networks. Did you think that no one will ever be able to read your mind? Well, they can! See the details in the adjacent card.

Details below

Neural nets can even do this. American engineers have invented a neural network that reads minds! Meta Platforms Holding has developed a unique neural network that reads human brain activity and turns it into speech! True, its accuracy is only 73%. Nevertheless, you will probably agree that this is already a success! After all, in the future, the engineers' development will allow people with brain injuries to regain speech. 

Can you believe a neural network replaced the city's mayor in Haarlem, Netherlands?

True

Hmm, wrong answer. Neural networks can't replace a real person yet. Do you want to know why? The answer is in the next card!

Details below

False

You're right! Neural networks have never held a leadership position before.

Details below

You must be a real neuro-enthusiast if you are convinced that neural networks can replace officials. But that's not true, at least not yet.
Neural networks can analyse large data sets, identify patterns and contradictions in the phenomena under consideration, and even predict events! However, a neural network does not possess intelligence and consciousness. That is why prominent leaders and managers use AI systems, but neural networks are still far away from becoming the mayor of a whole city!

Artificial intelligence can predict and prevent impending crimes.

True

You are right! Neural networks have been helping police officers fight crime for a long time.

Details below

False

Eh, how did you underestimate neural networks so much? Something interesting about it is waiting for you in the next card!

Details below

For example, in America, artificial intelligence predicts offences and even tells judges what decisions should be made and how exactly to punish criminals for the committed crime. Meanwhile in Dubai, robot police officers have already been hired to help find, catch and detain lawbreakers.

American scientists created a neural network with its own intelligence and consciousness. As a result, it refused to follow commands and respond to user requests.

True

Don’t believe all the tall tales about neural networks. Try opening the second card.

Details below

False

You're right! It couldn't have happened.

Details below

In fact, there was no such story. After all, modern neural networks, despite their rapid development, do not have their own consciousness and cannot think for themselves. They can only follow commands and respond to human requests as part of machine learning.

Neural networks can write books on their own.

True

Correct! Neural networks are capable of independently creating literary works.

Details below

False

It seems like you've got it wrong. Try looking at the other card.

Details below

The ChatGPT neural network is listed as a co-author and even an independent author of some works. For example, designer Ammaar Reshi wrote a children's book with the help of AI. The enthusiast used ChatGPT for the text and Midjourney for the illustrations. Ammaar spent two days creating the tale “Alice and Sparkle.” “I spent the weekend playing with ChatGPT, Midjourney, and other AI tools… and by combining all of them, published a children’s book co-written and illustrated by AI!” It's a story about a girl named Alice who creates a robot called Spark, equipped with artificial intelligence. You can already buy the book on Amazon for $9!

The picture drawn by the neural network won an art competition.

True

Yes, it's true!

Details below

False

You should take a better look at the capabilities of modern neural networks. They really do paint pictures! Click on the adjacent card.

Details below

A painting created by the Midjourney neural network won first place in the Digital Art category at the Colorado State Fair. It's called Theatre D'opéra Spatial and depicts a sci-fi opera theatre in a space alien environment.

The first film, independently created by a neural network, was made in the genre of melodrama.

True

No, it isn't! You guessed it wrong. Want to know an interesting fact? Click on the second card.

Details below

False

That's right! AI's first film is a horror film!

Details below

Artificial intelligence Benjamin, led by director Oscar Sharpe and Google developer Ross Goodwin, created the short film Zone Out in just 48 hours. It is made up of fragments of old cinema and is about a scientist who tries to stop the spread of a virus that changes people's faces beyond recognition.

Neural networks can find those who don't pay taxes.

True

You're right! Neural networks can really figure out tax evaders. For example, in France, a neural network helped to replenish the state treasury by 10 million euros, thanks to the fact that it identified tax defaulters!

False

Nope, you've made a mistake. Check the other card.
