Like Pavlov's dog, device can be conditioned to learn by association. Researchers have developed a brain-like computing device that is capable of learning by association. Similar to how famed physiologist Ivan Pavlov conditioned dogs to associate a b

With an artificial intelligence (AI) method developed by researchers at Aalto University and University of Helsinki, researchers can now link immune cells to their targets and for example uncouple which white blood cells recognize SARS-CoV-2. The dev
Many other public bodies have flawed and outdated computer systems. How long before something else goes wrong?
Protocol to reverse engineer Hamiltonian models advances automation of quantum devices. Scientists from the University of Bristol's Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) have developed an algorithm that provides valuable insights into the phy
Inspired by a theoretical model of particles moving around on a chessboard, new robot swarm research shows that, as magnetic interactions increase, dispersed 'dumb robots' can abruptly gather in large, compact clusters to accomplish complex tasks. Researchers report that these 'BOBbots' (behaving, organizing, buzzing bots) are also capable of collectively clearing debris that is too heavy for one alone to move, thanks to a robust algorithm.
Although robotic devices are used in everything from assembly lines to medicine, engineers have a hard time accounting for the friction that occurs when those robots grip objects - particularly in wet environments. Researchers have now discovered a new law of physics that accounts for this type of friction, which should advance a wide range of robotic technologies.
Endearing and amusing, AI's faltering attempts at flirting show how far computer-generated language has come.
The AI just got a useful boost in understanding natural human speech.
Training neural networks to perform tasks, such as recognizing images or navigating self-driving cars, could one day require less computing power and hardware thanks to a new artificial neuron device developed by researchers at the University of California San Diego.
A transmission factory shows how artificial intelligence may creep into industrial processes in gradual and often imperceptible ways.
Netflix's The Mitchells vs The Machines is laugh-out-loud funny animation as a hapless family end up as humanity's only hope against the machine
The advance could accelerate engineers’ design process by eliminating the need to solve complex equations. Isaac Newton may have met his match. For centuries, engineers have relied on physical laws — developed by Newton and others — to understand the
Building owners are using data collection and artificial intelligence to help control systems like heating, lighting, air quality and even the flow of workers.
The Federal Trade Commission is rattling its saber at the technology industry over growing public concern about biased AI algorithms. Can the agency back up its threats?
Researchers are going on a bear hunt, using AI and radar to spot dens and track the threatened Arctic predators
The acceleration of digital transformation was one of the most striking impacts of the pandemic. Video conferencing, contactless payments and conversational AI were just three of the technologies that saw massive adoption rates during 2020 as organisations scrambled to enable employees to work remotely, while helping customers to safely transact in-store and self-serve online.
Kate Crawford, who holds positions at USC and Microsoft, says in a new book that even experts working on the technology misunderstand AI.
