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.

Shielded quantum bits

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
Researchers present a quantum error correction system that is capable of learning thanks to artificial intelligence.

New tool streamlines the creation of moving pictures

Wed, 24/10/2018 - 11:21
It's often easy to imagine balloons soaring or butterflies fluttering across a still image, but realizing this vision through computer animation is easier said than done. Now, a team of researchers has developed a new tool that makes animating such images much simpler.

Where deep learning meets metamaterials

Tue, 23/10/2018 - 13:05
A new study uses 'deep-learning' computer networks inspired by the layered and hierarchical architecture of the human brain to design basic nanophotonic, metamaterial elements for energy harvesting and medical diagnostics.

Clapping Music app reveals that changing rhythm isn't so easy

Fri, 19/10/2018 - 12:07
Scientists have developed an app to understand why some rhythms are more difficult to perform than others.

New reservoir computer marks first-ever microelectromechanical neural network application

Tue, 16/10/2018 - 13:19
A group of researchers reports the construction of the first reservoir computing device built with a microelectromechanical system. The neural network exploits the nonlinear dynamics of a microscale silicon beam to perform its calculations. The group's work looks to create devices that can act simultaneously as a sensor and a computer using a fraction of the energy a normal computer would use.

Artificial intelligence helps reveal how people process abstract thought

Tue, 09/10/2018 - 11:50
As artificial intelligence becomes more sophisticated, much of the public attention has focused on how successfully these technologies can compete against humans at chess and other strategy games. A philosopher has taken a different approach, deconstructing the complex neural networks used in machine learning to shed light on how humans process abstract learning.

Model helps robots navigate more like humans do

Thu, 04/10/2018 - 15:54
Researchers have now devised a way to help robots navigate environments more like humans do. Their novel motion-planning model lets robots determine how to reach a goal by exploring the environment, observing other agents, and exploiting what they've learned before in similar situations.

A new brain-inspired architecture could improve how computers handle data and advance AI

Wed, 03/10/2018 - 16:27
Researchers are developing a new computer architecture, better equipped to handle increased data loads from artificial intelligence. Their designs draw on concepts from the human brain and significantly outperform conventional computers in comparative studies.
