Text-to-image AI: powerful, easy-to-use technology for making art – and fakes

Text-to-image generators like DALL-E and Stable Diffusion portend a future where anyone with a computer can fake a photograph of just about anything.

Defining what’s ethical in artificial intelligence needs input from Africans

Inclusivity and diversity also need to be at the level of identifying values and defining frameworks of what counts as ethical AI in the first place.
The subtleties of how genes are transcribed into RNA molecules like the one depicted here are key to understanding the inner workings of cells. Christoph Burgstedt/Science Photo Library via Getty Images

Machine learning plus insights from genetic research shows the workings of cells – and may help develop new drugs for COVID-19 and other diseases

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.
