Uncovering the Secrets of the Big Bang With Artificial Intelligence

Can machine learning be used to uncover the secrets of the quark-gluon plasma? Yes — but only with sophisticated new methods. It could hardly be more complicated: tiny particles whir around wildly with extremely high energy, countless interactions oc

“Hey, Alexa! Are You Trustworthy?” – Human-Like Social Behaviors Improve Trust in Digital Assistants

The more social behaviors a voice-user interface exhibits, the more likely people are to trust it, engage with it, and consider it to be competent. A family gathers around their kitchen island to unbox the digital assistant they just purchased. They

2D Materials could be used to simulate brain synapses in computers

Computers could mimic neural networks in the brain -- and be much more energy efficient -- with a new computer component that mimics how the brain works by acting like a synaptic cell. It's called an electrochemical random access memory (ECRAM), and researchers have developed materials that offer a commercially-viable way to build these components.

Demystifying machine-learning systems using natural language

Neural networks are sometimes called black boxes because, despite the fact that they can outperform humans on certain tasks, even the researchers who design them often don't understand how or why they work so well. But if a neural network is used outside the lab, perhaps to classify medical images that could help diagnose heart conditions, knowing how the model works helps researchers predict how it will behave in practice.

Machine intelligence builds soft machines

Soft machines—a subcategory of robotics that uses deformable materials instead of rigid links—are an emerging technology commonly used in wearable robotics and biomimetics (e.g., prosthetic limbs). Soft robots offer remarkable flexibility, outstanding adaptability, and evenly distributed force, providing safer human-machine interactions than conventional hard and stiff robots.

Where did that sound come from? Computer model can answer that question as well as the human brain can

The human brain is finely tuned not only to recognize particular sounds, but also to determine which direction they came from. By comparing differences in sounds that reach the right and left ear, the brain can estimate the location of a barking dog, wailing fire engine, or approaching car.
