New models sense human trust in smart machines

Tue, 11/12/2018 - 19:00
New 'classification models' sense how well humans trust intelligent machines they collaborate with, a step toward improving the quality of interactions and teamwork.

Mountain splendor? Scientists know where your eyes will look

Tue, 04/12/2018 - 09:03
Using precise brain measurements, researchers predicted how people's eyes move when viewing natural scenes, an advance in understanding the human visual system that can improve a host of artificial intelligence efforts, such as the development of driverless cars.

Computers successfully trained to identify animals in photos

Tue, 27/11/2018 - 17:14
Researchers trained a deep neural network to classify wildlife species using 3.37 million camera-trap images of 27 species of animals obtained from five states across the United States. The model then was tested on nearly 375,000 animal images at a rate of about 2,000 images per minute on a laptop computer, achieving 97.6 percent accuracy -- likely the highest accuracy to date in using machine learning for wildlife image classification.

Smarter AI: Machine learning without negative data

Mon, 26/11/2018 - 12:33
A research team has successfully developed a new method for machine learning that allows an AI to make classifications without what is known as 'negative data,' a finding which could lead to wider application to a variety of classification tasks.

Aquatic animals that jump out of water inspire leaping robots

Tue, 20/11/2018 - 12:59
Ever watch aquatic animals jump out of the water and wonder how they manage to do it in such a streamlined and graceful way? Researchers who specialize in water entry and exit in nature had the same question.

Model of quantum artificial life on quantum computer

Tue, 20/11/2018 - 12:58
Researchers have developed a quantum biomimetic protocol that reproduces the characteristic process of Darwinian evolution adapted to the language of quantum algorithms and quantum computing. The researchers anticipate a future in which machine learning, artificial intelligence and artificial life itself will be combined on a quantum scale.

Android child's face strikingly expressive

Thu, 15/11/2018 - 10:46
Android faces must express greater emotion if robots are to interact with humans more effectively. Researchers tackled this challenge as they upgraded their android child head, named Affetto. They precisely examined Affetto's facial surface points and the precise balancing of different forces necessary to achieve more human-like motion. Through mechanical measurements and mathematical modeling, they were able to use their findings to greatly enhance Affetto's range of emotional expression.

AI capable of outlining in a single chart information from thousands of scientific papers

Mon, 12/11/2018 - 09:59
Scientists have developed a Computer-Aided Material Design (CAMaD) system capable of extracting information related to fabrication processes and material structures and properties -- factors vital to material design -- and organizing and visualizing the relationship between them. The use of this system enables information from thousands of scientific and technical articles to be summarized in a single chart, rationalizing and expediting material design.

Artificial intelligence may fall short when analyzing data across multiple health systems

Fri, 09/11/2018 - 10:14
A new study shows deep learning models must be carefully tested across multiple environments before being put into clinical practice.

Codebreaker Turing's theory explains how shark scales are patterned

Wed, 07/11/2018 - 18:49
A system proposed by world war two codebreaker Alan Turing more than 60 years ago can explain the patterning of tooth-like scales possessed by sharks, according to new research.

Could machines using artificial intelligence make doctors obsolete?

Wed, 07/11/2018 - 18:49
The technology of these tools is evolving rapidly. Standalone machines can now perform limited tasks raising the question of whether machines will ever completely replace doctors?

New method peeks inside the 'black box' of artificial intelligence

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 09:20
Computer scientists have developed a promising new approach for interpreting machine learning algorithms. Unlike previous efforts, which typically sought to 'break' the algorithms by removing key words from inputs to yield the wrong answer, the researchers instead reduced the inputs to the bare minimum required to yield the correct answer. On average, the researchers got the correct answer with an input of less than three words.

Shape-shifting robots perceive surroundings, make decisions for first time

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 08:52
Researchers have developed modular robots that can perceive their surroundings, make decisions and autonomously assume different shapes in order to perform various tasks -- an accomplishment that brings the vision of adaptive, multipurpose robots a step closer to reality.

Empathetic machines favored by skeptics but might creep out believers

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 08:52
Most people would appreciate a chatbot that offers sympathetic or empathetic responses, according to a team of researchers, but they added that reaction may rely on how comfortable the person is with the idea of a feeling machine.

Machines that learn language more like kids do

Wed, 31/10/2018 - 12:49
Researchers describe a parser that learns through observation to more closely mimic a child's language-acquisition process, which could greatly extend the parser's capabilities.

Humans help robots learn tasks

Fri, 26/10/2018 - 14:33
With a smartphone and a browser, people worldwide will be able to interact with a robot to speed the process of teaching robots how to do basic tasks.

Fri, 26/10/2018 - 10:25
A theoretical concept to realize quantum information processing has been developed by a team of physicists.

Artificial fly brain can tell who's who

Thu, 25/10/2018 - 14:20
Researchers have built a neural network that mimics the fruit fly's visual system and can distinguish and re-identify flies. This provides evidence that the humble fruit fly's vision is clearer than previously thought.

Artificial intelligence controls quantum computers

Thu, 25/10/2018 - 11:32
