A team of researchers affiliated with a host of institutions in Korea and one in Estonia has found a way to use math to study paintings to learn more about the evolution of art history in the western world. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes how they scanned thousands of paintings and then used mathematical algorithms to find commonalities between them over time.
One year ago, Maneesh Agrawala of Stanford helped develop a lip-sync technology that allowed video editors to almost undetectably modify speakers' words. The tool could seamlessly insert words that a person never said, even mid-sentence, or eliminate words she had said.
Recently, researchers from the Institute of Intelligent Machines developed a new wavelength selection algorithm based on combined moving window (CMW) and variable dimension particle swarm optimization (VDPSO) algorithm.
Augury, a startup developing sensors and a platform that can predict when equipment might fail, has raised $55 million in funding.
COVID-19 has hastened the rollout of a new generation of autonomous retail checkout, and you just might find it at the corner store.
OLED technology has shown just how good wide-gamut, high dynamic range, high-resolution displays can be. But it may just have paved the way for MicroLED.
What if you could instruct a swarm of robots to paint a picture? The concept may sound far-fetched, but a recent study in open-access journal Frontiers in Robotics and AI has shown that it is possible. The robots in question move about a canvas leaving color trails in their wake, and in a first for robot-created art, an artist can select areas of the canvas to be painted a certain color and the robot team will oblige in real time.
Accurics, a company developing a cloud monitoring platform with 'self-healing' technology, has raised $20 million over the past six months.
The Japanese tech giant plans to build out technology in seven key areas, while addressing such social challenges in mind.
As the US general election looms, feelings are more than mixed about science policy for biomedical and medical research under US President Donald Trump’s administration.
The range of AI technologies available for dealing with brain disease is growing fast, and exciting new methods are being applied to brain problems as computer scientists gain a deeper understanding of the capabilities of advanced algorithms. Researchers conducted a systematic literature review to understand the state of the art in the use of AI for brain disease.
Scientist challenge scientific journals to hold computational researchers to higher standards of transparency, and call for their colleagues to share their code, models and computational environments in publications.
Fujitsu is also hoping to make practical quantum computing a reality, launching three collaborative research projects with global institutions.
Intelligent cameras could be one step closer thanks to a research collaboration between the Universities of Bristol and Manchester who have developed cameras that can learn and understand what they are seeing.
The HomePod mini is Apple's second smart speaker, and uses the U1 chip for communicating with nearby Apple devices.
Since 2013, DroneDeploy has let companies manage drone fleets and analyze aerial data. With 360 Walkthrough, it can now capture on-the-ground data too.
Artificial intelligence has arrived in our everyday lives—from search engines to self-driving cars. This has to do with the enormous computing power that has become available in recent years. But new results from AI research now show that simpler, smaller neural networks can be used to solve certain tasks even better, more efficiently, and more reliably than ever before.
South Korea has set itself the ambitious national target of developing 50 types of AI chips within the next decade.
