It's easy to get excited about the potential for robots to help care for the sick, injured and elderly, but we need the right regulations in place to deal with issues as they emerge.
One-third of roads in the U.S. are unpaved; plenty more have faded or obscured road markings. Today's self-driving vehicles can't go on them, and will need new algorithms to handle those conditions.
Amazon, Facebook and Google have lofty goals for their effects on global society. But people around the world are still waiting for the positive results. Here's what the tech giants could do.
Commentators always like to imagine what players could have done better – we're using AI to prove it.
Expecting algorithms to perform perfectly might be asking too much of ourselves.
A new machine-learning algorithm does more with less.
There's no reason why AI systems can't speak any language – but is there a reason why it should?
A new study provides fascinating data on how people prioritise who to save in hypothetical driverless car crashes. But it takes more than just numbers to really create ethical machines.
While many jobs are being replaced by technology, those that participate in the making of (good) social experiences for people are bucking the trend.
Artificial intelligence techniques like deep learning and reinforcement learning are getting increasingly advanced and capable of helping people with a wide range of complex tasks.
Artificial intelligence poses opportunities as well as dangers; understanding them – and regulating carefully – will help avoid harm to individuals and society as a whole.
An algorithm named AICAN has been 'taught' the entire canon of Western art history – and now produces, titles and sells works of its own.
Robots in the classroom are highly engaging and motivating for students, and can have a cascading effect on learning across an entire school.
Later this month, Christie's will be auctioning its first piece of AI art – a portrait created via machine learning.
Artificial intelligence research owes a lot to biology and chemistry.
It might look like an unfinished piece but it's the work of artificial intelligence, the first artwork of its kind to be sold at auction.
A legal loophole could grant computer systems many legal rights people have – threatening human rights and dignity and setting up some real legal and moral problems.
People are still wrestling with what artificial intelligence could and should do, half a century after the debut of the Kubrick-Clarke classic.
AI and human musical collaborations have been around since the 60s, but for the first time, we are hearing AI "pop" music: can AI actually create creative and emotionally engaging music?
Artificial intelligence and data analytics are transforming the practice of law.
