We used the latest techniques from artificial intelligence to study how support for or opposition to a piece of fake news can spread within a social network.
Artificial Intelligence is set to explode and, as a result, multiple versions of AI are bound to co-exist. It's time to influence its development into a truly pan-global cultural environment.
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.
Disruptive technology is fundamentally reshaping global security, and potentially laying the ground for a US-China conflict.
AI has caused a "techlash" against Google. These principles are first step, but more needs to be done.
A new study shows that eye-trackers in computers and VR headsets enable AI to predict your next move in digital games – and that deception strategies won't work as well on AI as they do on humans.
It could seem attractive to try to teach computers to detect harassment, threats and abusive language. But it's much more difficult than it might appear.
Can artificial intelligence accurately simulate people's religious tendencies in the face of disaster and tragedy?
Compounds in your breath could help AI detect illnesses, including different cancers.
The Liberal government is in the process of wooing tech giants as economic partners. They use Facebook data to help them win elections. How then will they regulate the privacy of our data?
The dangers of AI solutionism need to be addressed.
The dynamic between the master and the slave dominates accounts of AI at the moment.
