Inspired by the workings of a bat's ear, a professor of mechanical engineering has created bio-inspired technology that determines the location of a sound's origin.
Leaked draft legislation suggests the European Union is attempting to find a “third way” on artificial intelligence regulation, between the free market US and authoritarian China
An AI tool developed at the University of Gothenburg offers new opportunities for analyzing images taken with microscopes. A study shows that the tool, which has already received international recognition, can fundamentally change microscopy and pave
Virtual assistants and robots are frequently given female attributes. To curb the massive use of such gendering in AI, we need to better understand the deep roots of this phenomenon.
A leaked draft of EU regulation around the use of AI sets hefty fines of up to €20 million or four percent of global turnover (whichever is greater.)
Elon Musk's brain-machine interface technology could bring humans and computers closer together than ever before, and herald a new frontier in healthcare
Deal comes as Microsoft builds up its cloud-computing operation for healthcare and business customers
Microsoft is considering acquiring Siri creator Nuance for $16 billion in a deal that’s expected to be announced imminently.
Artificial intelligence is probably already helping many students write essays. Schools and unis need to start talking about the ethical implications now.
Powerful algorithms can 'predict' the biological language of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, scientists have found. Big data produced during decades of research was fed into a computer language model to see if artificial intelligence can make more advanced discoveries than humans.
When it comes to adopting the latest technologies and enhancing service delivery effectiveness, contact centres have been silently leading the way for years. Few other parts of the business have had to adapt so quickly to the demands of today’s connected consumers, first transitioning from voice to omnichannel and then to becoming engagement hubs supporting a growing number of proactive channels of customer interaction.
Humans often stumble when they encounter the unexpected, but they tend to adapt and move on. Artificial intelligence systems, not so much.
A new context-aware system for robots is ready for implementation on the factory floor. A recent study shows the system is more efficient because it can recognize co-workers and their body shapes, and even predict their movements.
A pioneer in machine learning has argued that the technology is best placed to augment human intelligence and bemoaned ‘confusion’ over the meaning of artificial intelligence (AI).
The public holds self-driving cars to incredibly high safety standards – and we're working to meet them.
A biomedical engineer is reporting a new deep neural network architecture - to be used on a standard laptop - that provides early diagnosis of systemic sclerosis (SSc), a rare autoimmune disease marked by hardened or fibrous skin and internal organs.
A study proves that AI systems might reach higher levels of performance if they are programmed with sound files of human language rather than with numerical data labels. The researchers discovered that in a side-by-side comparison, a neural network whose 'training labels' consisted of sound files reached higher levels of performance in identifying objects in images, compared to another network that had been programmed in a more traditional manner, using simple binary inputs.
Public can try pulling faces to trick the technology, while critics highlight human rights concerns
