The accessibility of neural networks to the public: possible uses and advances 

It is nothing new that neural network and machine learning tools have been in the hands of the qualified public for some time, as “challenges” have been carried out for years, where their own AI is compared to the performance of online players ( here ), but with computational capacity more than doubling in shorter […]

Relevance of Game Theory in the Context of Artificial Intelligence

A brief introduction to those unfamiliar with Game Theory should start from the assumption that it is not about games in the ordinary sense. Such theory suggests a mathematical approach to ensuring a response for more significant gain or lesser loss in situations involving two or more players. In essence, game theory studies the decision-making […]

Effects Of Transparency On Government Trust
