Why Google wants to think more like you and less like a machine

Computers today are fast and powerful but they still can't think like a human when it comes to some tasks we find easy. That's why tech companies are turning to neuroscience for help.

Don’t blame it on algorithms: what they really are and how they can fuel progress in the life sciences

Today algorithms are ubiquitous, yet often misunderstood. Rather than mysterious entities, they're closer to recipes, and the quality of the output depends on the input – in their case, data.

Cracking big data with statistical physics

Methods stemming from decades of research on disordered materials are used to describe algorithmic phase transitions, and to design new algorithms in machine-learning problems.
Australians should be able to do more than just access and transfer their own consumer data.

Data availability report presents compromised rights for consumers

The Productivity Commission’s report on data availability and use is disappointing for consumers, who won't be able to stop firms collecting their data or challenge automated decisions made using it.

An algorithm to improve the renewable energy production

Relying less on fossil fuels is one of the key challenges of energy transition, and taking weather variations into account can help increase the overall efficiency of a renewable-energy system.
Can an algorithm explain itself? Robot decision via

Did artificial intelligence deny you credit?

A European Union law will require human-understandable explanations for algorithms' decisions. A team of researchers has found a way to provide that, even for complex calculations.
