As the perils and wonders of artificial intelligence begin to permeate our lives, the ‘IPCC report for AI’ calls for action from researchers and government to ensure a safe future.
Natural language coding means that people won’t need to learn specialized coding languages to write programs or design websites. But large corporations will control the means of translation.
As the pandemic pushes healthcare online, it’s time to stop overlooking the environmental impacts.
The amount of climate data available to us is growing exponentially, and is far too much to sort through ourselves. But machines can do this for us.
Lawyers were thought to be mostly immune from the coming AI revolution, but two legal experts explain why jobs that rely on human ingenuity can still be affected.
Machine learning is great at finding patterns but doesn’t know what those patterns mean. Combine it with knowledge gained from genetic research and you have a powerful view into the workings of cells.
The decision is supported by the government’s policy environment in recent years. This has aimed to increase innovation, and views technology as a way to achieve this.
Automation is set to put a lot of people out of work - but machine learning could help them find their next career.
It’s difficult to tell a shipwreck from a natural feature on the ocean floor in a scan taken from a plane or ship. This project used deep learning to get it right 92% of the time.
Machine learning offers improved access to affordable testing and quality of care for those who are unaware of their hepatitis B status.
Machine learning is helping astronomers unravel the vast amounts of data being collected.
Through the act of suggesting some words and not others, the predictive text features in our devices change the way we think — and therefore shape our culture.
Combining archaeological evidence, aerial scans and machine learning algorithms, researchers modeled how this medieval city grew over time.
Autonomous vehicles could one day transform urban transport and make roads safer, but some obstacles need to be overcome first.
The researchers used machine learning to study the 2,000-year-old document.
Humans often stumble when they encounter the unexpected, but they tend to adapt and move on. Artificial intelligence systems, not so much.
By letting machines recommend movies and decide whom to hire, humans are losing their unpredictable nature – and possibly the ability to make everyday judgments, as well.
In a series of experiments, Australian researchers showed how machines can find vulnerabilities in human decision-making and exploit them to influence our behaviour.
A new report from the GovLab and the French Development Agency (AFD) examines how development practitioners are experimenting with emerging forms of technology to advance development goals.
Psychological assessment and treatment is based on well-defined rules, which makes it ripe for a robot takeover.
