To the naked eye, a sheet of stainless steel presents a smooth, polished, homogenous surface. The same material when viewed at 400 times magnification reveals its true jumbled structure—different crystal shapes, joined at wildly different angles. Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign used data from high-resolution images of stainless-steel samples to train neural networks that make predictions about how the material will behave at places where the crystals meet, when strained.
When it comes to automation, it's more creep than paradigm shift.
In “God, Human, Animal, Machine,” the essayist and cultural critic Meghan O’Gieblyn traces how our conception of the human mind has been shaped by our tech-driven era — and what such a view leaves out.
After a painful break-up from a cheating ex, Beijing-based human resources manager Melissa was introduced to someone new by a friend late last year.
The three-year spending plan for strategic businesses such as semiconductors, biopharmaceuticals, and telecommunications is being prepared in anticipation of "great changes" following the COVID-19 pandemic, Samsung says.
Perhaps, if we put bots together the right way, consciousness will simply emerge.
Services Australia said the number of outages was almost half of what it was in 2019-20. It also provided detail on its IT expenditure, with AU$1.48 billion spent last financial year.
SpaceX is a step closer to achieving its goal of delivering global broadband connectivity through a satellite constellation.
Engineers have developed robots that can work independently and cooperatively to move unwieldy objects like a couch. In simulations, the robots were successful even when tasked to move an object in new, unfamiliar scenarios.
In an effort to combat bots, the brand has made it more difficult to “Captcha” its shopping bags. Too difficult, perhaps.
The hype cycle is handy for tech buyers who need to know what buzzword bingo they're about to receive from vendors.
Got an expensive caffeine habit at your local coffee shop that you need to get under control? These machines will help to make barista-quality drinks in the privacy of your own home.
An interdisciplinary panel of experts has assessed the risks and potential benefits associated with deploying autonomous vehicles (AVs) on U.S. roads and predicts that the benefits will substantially outweigh potential harms—but only if the AVs are well regulated.
KAUST researchers have found a way to significantly increase the speed of training. Large machine learning models can be trained significantly faster by observing how frequently zero results are produced in distributed machine learning that use large training datasets.
When a robot needs to move across a room, there are several paths, each with curves and multiple potential starting and ending points. How does it decide the most efficient, cost-effective approach? A collaborative team of researchers in the United States may have the answer.
Ultrasound imaging techniques have proved to be highly valuable tools for diagnosing a variety of health conditions, including peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD, one of the most common diseases among the elderly, entails the blocking or narrowing of peripheral blood vessels, which limits the supply of blood to specific areas of the body.
Yep, he's at it again. Apparently, launching a sports car into space wasn't enough. Now, he's hoping to unleash an army of labor-saving bipedal robots into our homes and businesses.
The proposed merger between Nvidia and British chip technology giant Arm is looking increasingly doubtful as the CMA (Competition & Markets Authority) believes the deal “raises serious competition concerns”.
