The AI Face Depixelizer tool uses machine learning to generate high-resolution faces from low-resolution inputs. But many say the algorithm is biased, defaulting toward white faces, as illustrated when an input using Barack Obama is turned into a white man.
Research shows how humans can shield machine learning from manipulation. Artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies are poised to supercharge productivity in the knowledge economy, transforming the future of work. But they’re far from perfect.
In a new paper, Facebook researchers detail wav2vec 2.0, which ostensibly achieves state-of-the-art speech recognition performance.
Trump's suspension of the H-1B visa program for highly-skilled workers will cut off US access to international AI talent.
In response to a research paper that claims to predict criminality from people's faces, hundreds demand its withdrawal from publication.
A navigation algorithm developed at the University of Zurich enables drones to learn challenging acrobatic maneuvers. Autonomous quadcopters can be trained using simulations to increase their speed, agility and efficiency, which benefits conventional search and rescue operations.
Google is making it easier to use ML Kit, its suite of machine learning tools for mobile app developers, without Firebase.
Nvidia and Mercedes-Benz detailed the autonomous driving system that'll power forthcoming vehicles from the latter company.
A photo editing tool designed by a programming team at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, raises prospects for sharper, cleaner images in digital presentations and also promises hours of fun for older-video game fans who can now generate crystal clear faces for low-pixel characters who populated early products.
SqueezeBERT is NLP from former DeepScale CEO Forrest Iandola that's 4.3 times faster than BERT on a Pixel smartphone, with lower latency than MobileBERT.
Lyft says that it has begun collecting data from ride-hailing drivers in its network to better train its autonomous vehicle systems.
Silicon Valley once had plenty of time to schmooze and give out awards. COVID-19 accelerated many technology trends, which means that it also accelerated the arrival of future problems. We will need some solutions pretty fast.
Third Wave Automation, a startup developing an autonomous forklift platform, emerged from stealth with $15 million in series A funding.
Nylas, which provides email, calendar, and contact APIs for developers to build into their own apps, has raised $25 million in a series B round of funding.
Humans have a role in the future of work, but shared autonomy may be the new reality for warehouse and logistics.
Apple has revamped the macOS desktop in Big Sur in preparation for a future more aligned with iOS and iPadOS.
Chinas ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing aims to operate more than 1 million self-driving cars through its platform by 2030.
In a preprint paper, researchers propose an AI technique that reverse-engineers programs without any privileged knowledge.
