Over the past decade or so, researchers have been developing increasingly advanced artificial intelligence (AI) systems for a wide range of applications. This includes computational techniques that can interact with humans, analyze large quantities of data, identify the most salient parts of texts and much more.
Spiketrap has raised $3 million for its AI platform that helps brands understand how they are engaging with consumers on social media.
TuSimple announced the launch of a nationwide -- and eventually global -- autonomous freight network that might someday transport goods in 48 U.S. states.
The world needs to engage seriously with China’s AI development and take a closer look at what’s really going on.
Artificially intelligent camera systems look for defects and misplaced parts in many industries. The coronavirus pandemic makes them extra useful.
A pleasingly sceptical investigation into the innovations that could change the way we eat, have sex and die
Engineering researchers have developed soft robots inspired by jellyfish that can outswim their real-life counterparts. More practically, the new jellyfish-bots highlight a technique that uses pre-stressed polymers to make soft robots more powerful.
Researchers propose a new approach to finding an optimal solution for controlling large numbers of robots collaboratively completing a set of complex linear temporal logic commands called STyLuS*, for large-Scale optimal Temporal Logic Synthesis, that can solve problems massively larger than what current algorithms can handle, with hundreds of robots, tens of thousands of rooms and highly complex tasks, in a small fraction of the time.
ACM, one of the largest computer science orgs in the world, today called for the halt of facial recognition use by governments and businesses in the U.S.
Up to three million people die from malaria and sickle cell disease every year, with the vast majority of cases occurring in developing countries with very poor access to healthcare. Fortunately, a new AI-powered diagnostic device could be the key to catching these diseases before it’s too late.
Tech giants joined universities and nonprofits and backed a national AI research cloud, something supporters say will help the U.S. innovate and compete.
The amount of data being transmitted, received, stored, & analyzed at the edge, or on devices, is exploding; a new strategy for data management is needed.
In a recent paper, analysts at the Montreal AI Ethics Institute examine key challenges faced by the AI community -- and propose solutions.
In a newly published paper, Facebook proposes a system -- MARGE -- that can summarize and translate documents without fine-tuning on data sets.
