For roboticists looking to nature for inspiration on how animals see the world, there's a tension between mimicking biology and capitalising on the advances in camera technology.
Computational technologies impact on every human right.
Smarter AI could save us from computers' stupid decisions.
Project Debater looks like machines are ready to understand humans, but the reality is we're still in the earliest days of AI.
We have developed a system that combines human intuition with machine learning to provide support for people making complex decisions.
It is just as much for our own sake, as for the sake of robots, that we should begin recognising the rights of intelligent machines.
Australian law firms are beginning to demand that law schools teach students new skills for the new AI economy, but legal education is failing to keep up.
