But Lorde stunned fans during an appearance on Australian TV show Sunrise on Friday (07Jul17) when she insisted she wasn't part of Taylor's 'squad' - the singer's A-list group of friends, which includes models Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss and musical sisters Haim.

Google DeepMind AI learns to creatively move around obstacles

  Google DeepMind AI learns to creatively move around obstacles Reinforcement learning (RL) is the practice of teaching and guiding behavior by using a reward system. The team wanted to see if simple rewards would work in a complex environment. They set up a virtual parkour course with drops, hurdles and ledges and set a reward for forward progress. At its most basic level, the system was as follows: the faster the AI moved across the terrain, the greater the rewards. Additional incentives and penalties were added for more complex programs.
