People rarely use just one sense to understand the world, but robots usually only rely on vision and, increasingly, touch. Researchers find that robot perception could improve markedly by adding another sense: hearing.
Researchers found that image-processing circuits in the primary visual cortex not only are more active when animals move freely, but that they receive signals from a movement-controlling region of the brain that is independent from the region that processes what the animal is looking at.
The part that artificial intelligence plays in climate change has come under scrutiny, including from tech workers themselves who joined the global climate strike last year. Much can be done by developing tools to quantify the carbon cost of machine learning models and by switching to a sustainable artificial intelligence infrastructure.
Chest CT is emerging as a valuable diagnostic tool for clinical management of COVID-19 associated lung disease. Here, the authors present a multinational study on the application of deep learning algorithms for COVID-19 diagnosis against multiple lung conditions as controls.
Advanced algorithms handle close-range air combat, Air Force pilot in online finale.
Firms are building robots that can survey the seabed and underwater structures without human help.
For years, Facebook has relied on Linux and open-source software. Now it's taking a leading role in The Linux Foundation.
Amazon today launched its fully managed quantum computing service -- Braket -- in general availability following a preview.
As more and more robotic devices inhabit the space around us, a large challenge emerges- the risk of collision. But Caltech thinks they have a solution…
Researchers used a GoPro camera and a reacher-grabber device to gather robotic training data, a cheap approach that could someday improve home robots.
It's not just Google that's trying to get a handle on earthquakes. The Linux Foundation and partners are working on an open-source earthquake early warning system as well.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that recognizes hand gestures by combining skin-like electronics with computer vision.
The topic of mental health is probably one of the most talked-about in recent years and is especially relevant during current times. Though youngsters can meet up with friends and family, it is particularly difficult for the elderly to do so, which i
In a preprint paper, researchers propose using dictionaries of rare words to accelerate the training of natural language models.
In a preprint study, researchers present evidence that perceptions of social robots are changing for the better as a result of the pandemic.
An algorithm that determined A-level grades in England has downgraded 39% of predicted results -- with disadvantaged students suffering the biggest drop
Virtual assistants and robots are becoming increasingly sophisticated, interactive and human-like. To fully replicate human communication, however, artificial intelligence (AI) agents should not only be able to determine what users are saying and produce adequate responses, they should also mimic humans in the way they speak.
The pandemic makes physical experimentation with robots practically impossible. Here's how some roboticists have adjusted to the new normal.
