A new AI-powered tool claims to detect child abuse images with around 99 percent accuracy.
Virtual Instagram influencer Miquela released a music video for her new song "Hard Feelings," which was made using the Unreal Engine and debuted at the online version of Lollapalooza.
Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly fundamental in the way engineers conceive and manufacture their products. However, the introduction of self-evolving AI in machine design could take this to a new level raising questions over the need for engineers at all.
Many factors must be kept in mind when designing a hospital, a factory, a shopping center or any industrial plant, and many questions can arise before deciding on the floor plans. What is the best placement for each different space? What distribution is the most appropriate in order to improve efficiency in these large areas? University of Cordoba researchers Laura García and Lorenzo Salas are trying to provide an answer to these questions, and to do so, they have turned to the marine world to simulate the behavior of coral reefs.
A new AI-powered tool called Safer aims to stem the flow of child sexual abuse content, find the victims, and identify the perpetrators.
As the volume of available information expands, the fraction a person is able to absorb shrinks. They end up retreating into a narrow slice of thought, becoming more vulnerable to misinformation, and polarizing into isolated enclaves of competing opinions.
AI doesn't have agency, it doesn't look human, and it is actually still pretty restricted. But most of us have forgotten that.
Increasing automation and digitization is inevitable. More companies are transferring their operations to IT systems, and more of these operations are being automated. However, what isn’t inevitable is the rise in IT failures and periods of downtime that digitization and automation entail.
The UK region launched a contact-tracing app based on the same platform as the Republic of Ireland.
Synthetic video and audio seemed pretty bad. Synthetic writing—ubiquitous and undetectable—will be far worse.
Kathryn Campell said the department is now aware that averaging ATO income data to determine a debt was a 'flawed assumption'.
The pandemic has further boosted the ascendant popularity of digital entertainment.
There is a need to consider how AI developers can be practically assisted in identifying and addressing ethical issues. In this Comment, a group of AI engineers, ethicists and social scientists suggest embedding ethicists into the development team as one way of improving the consideration of ethical issues during AI development.
Acute critical illness is often preceded by deterioration of routinely measured clinical parameters, e.g., blood pressure and heart rate. Here, the authors develop an explainable artificial intelligence early warning score system for its early detection.
A new ‘biosynthetic’ polymer is now able to quickly heal itself with just the use of water and heat (and maybe light), leading the way towards soft robot actuators that are biodegradable and protective equipment that repairs damage automatically.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University developed a live-streamed game designed to collect audio for AI and machine learning research.
Amazon today reported fiscal Q2 2020 earnings, including revenue of $88.9 billion, net income of $5.2 billion, and earnings per share of $10.30.
Outer space. A mystical land that very few have ever had the chance to explore. As a race, there remains much we are yet to learn about the environment. Therefore, the astronauts sent are pivotal in our discovery of this mostly unknown environment. W
