Trailers, short video clips that introduce new movies, are often crucial elements in the promotional strategies employed by film production companies. To be most effective, trailers should briefly summarize a movie's plot, conveying its artistic style and overall mood in appealing ways.
Japan's National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) has developed an ionic artificial vision device capable of increasing the edge contrast between the darker and lighter areas of an mage in a manner similar to that of human vision. This first-ever synthetic mimicry of human optical illusions was achieved using ionic migration and interaction within solids.
Published today in the Open-Access, Open-Data journal GigaScience is the National COVID-19 Chest Imaging Database (NCCID), a centralized database containing chest X-rays, Computed Tomography (CT) and MRI scans from patients across the UK. Utilizing t
The world's largest manufacturers lose 1 trillion dollars per year to machine failure. Many problems lie in the noisy factory environment—working equipment and processes produce high sound, consequently, machinery faults are often unheard or for that reason detected too late.
Disinformation has been used in warfare and military strategy over time. But it is undeniably being intensified by the use of smart technologies and social media. This is because these communication technologies provide a relatively low-cost, low-barrier way to disseminate information basically anywhere.
The future is bright for Otonomo -- which recently raised $255 million in its IPO and acquired AI startup Neura as part of a bold growth strategy.
A new machine-learning model could enable robots to understand interactions in the world in the way humans do. When humans look at a scene, they see objects and the relationships between them. On top of your desk, there might be a laptop that is sitt
Could AI turn on us, or is natural stupidity a greater threat to humanity?
Former BBC correspondent Rory Cellan-Jones spoke to Prof Stuart Russell ahead of his four Reith Lectures.
Scientists have discovered a new form of biological reproduction -- and created self-replicating living robots. Made from frog cells, these computer-designed organisms gather single cells inside a Pac-Man-shaped 'mouth' -- and release Xenobot 'babies' that look and move like themselves.
Research has long strived to develop computers to work as energy efficiently as our brains. A study has now succeeded in combining a memory function with a calculation function in the same component. The discovery opens the way for more efficient technologies, everything from mobile phones to self-driving cars.

Researchers have developed a new approach to machine learning that 'learns how to learn' and out-performs current machine learning methods for drug design, which in turn could accelerate the search for new disease treatments.
Researchers developed a machine learning model that understands the underlying relationships between objects in a scene and can generate accurate images of scenes from text descriptions.
Lily Xu knew from a young age how much the environment and conservation mattered to her. By 9 years old, she’d already decided to eat vegetarian because, as she put it, “I didn’t want to hurt animals.” Xu grew up believing her passions would always b
Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly sophisticated. But we’re still a long way off from AI being able to discern what’s fake news.
'Machine learning projects are much more complicated and bigger than machine learning model algorithms.'
Electrical grids are almost always over-dimensioned to meet short surges in energy demand. Put simply, power stations need to have an excess number of generators only to be able to provide electricity during peak hours. This mismatch between power supply and demand and the inefficient operation of power stations lead to higher carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
