Can robots be effective tools in combating the COVID-19 pandemic? A group of leaders in the field of robotics say yes, and outline a number of examples. They say robots can be used for clinical care such as telemedicine and decontamination; logistics such as delivery and handling of contaminated waste; and reconnaissance such as monitoring compliance with voluntary quarantines.
Machine Learning Detects Bomb Craters in Cambodia Researchers have used artificial intelligence to detect Vietnam War-era bomb craters in Cambodia from satellite images – with the hope that it can help find unexploded bombs. The new method increased
A new project is an effort to combat the rise of coordinated social media campaigns to incite violence, sew discord and threaten the integrity of democratic elections.
Apple has updated Siri to provide information to people who are concerned they have COVID-19. Users can ask the voice assistant "Do I have coronavirus?" and it will offer advice based on the severity of the symptoms.
The RAISE 2020 Summit is expected to feature some of the most exciting global startups working in Artificial Intelligence related fields and is expected to have multiple events such as the AI Startup Pitchfest, AI Startup Theater and The AI Startup Awards.
The long read: With 850 million children worldwide shut out of schools, tech evangelists claim now is the time for AI education. But as the technology’s power grows, so too do the dangers that come with it
Scientists have demonstrated fully-autonomous SPM operation, applying artificial intelligence and deep learning to remove the need for constant human supervision. The new system, dubbed DeepSPM, bridges the gap between nanoscience, automation and artificial intelligence (AI), and firmly establishes the use of machine learning for experimental scientific research using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM).
Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing and blockchain can make supply chains more resilient - but only if we (and they) collaborate.
Researchers created a new approach to VR that will allow multiple players to interact with the same VR app on smartphones and provide new opportunities for education, health care and entertainment.
Kate Darling researches human-robot interaction. She explains why we are prone to forming emotional connections with robots and what we can learn from our relationships with pets and other animals
Westworld is soon to return with season three. Four episodes in to the impossibly glamorous, highly urbanised future, I can't wait to find out what's going on, writes Emily Wilson
A new type of robot combines traditional and soft robotics, making it safe but sturdy. Once inflated, it can change shape and move without being attached to a source of energy or air.
Google Translate’s AI-powered transcription feature is out starting today for Android uses, with iOS users gaining access at some point in the future. The feature will allow you to record audio live or from a prerecorded source and have it translated in real time into another language, in the form of text.
Using machine learning to create new proteins by translating proteins into musical scores. Proteins are the building blocks of life, and consequently, scientists have long studied how they can improve proteins and design completely new proteins that perform new functions and processes.
In the production of chemical compounds, the success of each individual reaction depends on numerous parameters. It is not always possible, even for experienced chemists, to predict whether a reaction will take place and how well it will work. In order to remedy this situation, chemists and computer scientists have now developed a tool based on artificial intelligence.
An artificial intelligence modeled after the neural circuitry in mammalian brains can keep learning new aromas without forgetting others.
Man Versus Machine: Can AI Do Science? Over the last few decades, machine learning has revolutionized many sectors of society, with machines learning to drive cars, identify tumors and play chess – often surpassing their human counterparts. Now, a te
New research explains some of these functions through a computer algorithm inspired by the mammalian olfactory system. The algorithm both sheds light on how the brain works and, applied to a computer chip, rapidly and reliably learns patterns better than existing machine learning models.
