Prominent thinkers exaggerating the potential or danger of artificial intelligence are pushing us towards a new AI winter.
A proposed bill would force tech companies to tell users how much their data is worth. But how can a single number capture data's power to predict your actions or sway your decisions?
Finding out more about how the brain works could help programmers translate thinking from the wet and squishy world of biology into all-new forms of machine learning in the digital world.
Research has found ways to detect deepfakes through flaws that can't be fixed easily by the fakers.
We know that social media platforms have an incentive to promote whatever gets the most attention, regardless of its authenticity. We're more reluctant to admit that the same is true of people.
Teaching robots to care for us in old age will be child's play.
