Banks, consumer advocates and think tanks are weighing in to federal bank regulators about potential pitfalls in the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in making loan decisions.
Blockchain is far from environmentally friendly. Using lessons learned from supercomputing, scientists are now developing methods to reduce blockchain's energy consumption, while increasing its scalability.
Haptics and 3D spatial imaging are helping transform medical training for surgeons in biggest leap forward in generations.
A website that allows people to undress a photograph in seconds is gaining lots of users.
Misogyny on the internet too often slips through the filters of content moderators. A new method hopes to inject more nuance into the process.

The Abbey Library of St. Gall in Switzerland is home to approximately 160,000 volumes of literary and historical manuscripts dating back to the eighth century—all of which are written by hand, on parchment, in languages rarely spoken in modern times.
The US military has been trialing the use of an algorithm that anticipates the enemy's next move in advance.
A federal court in Australia has ruled that AI systems can be credited as inventors under patent law in a case that could set a global precedent.
A new approach to tackling the spread of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa, which combines affordable, easy-to-administer blood tests with machine learning and unbreakable encryption, has generated encouraging early results in Uganda.
GPT-3 slides into your DMs thanks to new research on AI and dating.
Using Artificial Intelligence, corporations can see new patterns in their data and maintain a competitive edge. Blending these AI technologies into business strategy and operations is the subject of a newly published book. Deploying an Artificial Int
Pradipta Ghosh has plans to revolutionize the drug discovery pipeline.
The societal impacts of technological change can be seen in many domains, from messenger RNA vaccines and automation to drones and climate change. The pace of that technological change can affect its impact, and how quickly a technology improves in performance can be an indicator of its future importance.
Twitter is recruiting the help of the HackerOne community to try and fix troubling biases with its AI models.
Cybersecurity analysts deal with an enormous amount of data, especially when monitoring network traffic. If one were to print the data in text form, a single day's worth of network traffic may be akin to a thick phonebook. In other words, detecting an abnormality is like finding a needle in a haystack.
About 20 years ago, a series of coordinated terrorist attacks killed almost 3,000 people in the World Trade Center, New York and at the Pentagon. Since then, a vast amount of research has been carried out to better understand the mechanisms behind terrorism in the hope of preventing future potentially devastating acts of terror.
A group at DeepMind called the Open-Ended Learning Team has developed a new way to train AI systems to play games. Instead of exposing it to millions of prior games, as is done with other game playing AI systems, the group at DeepMind has given its new AI system agents a set of minimal skills that they use to achieve a simple goal (such as spotting another player in a virtual world) and then build on it.
