The UK government has said that students in England and Wales will no longer receive exam results based on a controversial algorithm. The system developed by exam regulator Ofqual was accused of being biased.
Lincolnshire police plan to test facial recognition and behavioral tech that infers people's moods and expressions by analyzing CCTV footage.
Letters: The formula used to determine A-level results did not adhere to ethical principles, write a group of academics, while Dr John Elsom says the fiasco illustrates the government’s misuse of algorithms. Plus letters from Paul Clarke and Calix Ed
With potential application diagnosing cancer or predicting how viruses, such as HIV, attack human cells, machine learning is opening promising new areas of application for bioinformatics—the data science of molecular biology. Dr. Pengyi Yang from the Charles Perkins Centre and School of Mathematics and Statistics with colleagues has summarized the latest developments in this emerging field in a review article in Nature Machine Intelligence.
Could this material be the next step into a world of cyborgs
A team of researchers at Stanford University has created an artificial intelligence-based player called the Vid2Player that is capable of generating startlingly realistic tennis matches—featuring real professional players. They have written a paper describing their work and have uploaded it to the arXiv preprint server.
Autonomous vehicles, such as cars, forklifts, and delivery robots, may never be able to operate 100% independently. That is where teleoperation could help.
Scientists in EPFL's Digital and Cognitive Musicology Lab (DCML), led by Martin Rohrmeier, have used data science and statistical techniques to characterize the musical style of choro, a primarily instrumental genre from Brazil, for the very first time.
Ships play a huge part in the global economy, and we could soon see a bigger push toward automation in the maritime realm.
As the pandemic stretches on, the threat to meatpacking, meat processing, and distribution center employees has researchers seeking a new production model.
From insurance and healthcare to social media and policing, algorithms are used all around us.
Though automation is creating new job opportunities, many workers are at risk of being left behind. But that bleak future is not inevitable.
The human brain efficiently executes highly sophisticated tasks, such as image and speech recognition, with an exceptionally lower energy budget than today's computers can. The development of energy-efficient and tunable artificial neurons capable of emulating brain-inspired processes has, therefore, been a major research goal for decades.
The COVID-19 crisis could accelerate a robotics revolution and impact jobs -- but it's not necessarily all bad news for workers.
Ahead of the Hot Chips 2020 conference this week, photonics chip startup Lightmatter detailed its forthcoming test chip accelerator hardware.
For decades, Hollywood has made millions off of our fears that artificial intelligences such as HAL in 2001: A Space Odyssey and Skynet in The Terminator could one day control us or even wipe out humanity.
Agiloft, a company developing contract lifecycle management software, has raised $45 million to further develop its AI technologies and expand globally.
A newly published Microsoft report reveals all as it warns of the danger to the UK economy and businesses global competitiveness if they do not get ahead of the technological revolution that artificial intelligence brings.
