Artificially intelligent drug design programs could discover new therapies for conditions that are difficult or prohibitively expensive to cure.
AlphaZero is a machine capable of defeating the most complex board games for the human mind, based only on its own learning experience, not on accumulated human knowledge.
The AI behind retail websites has learnt the best strategy is to copy each other's prices – and that can see them 'collude' to keep them high.
Bee brains contain less than one million neurons. Despite this, new research shows the honeybee can use symbols to perform basic maths, including addition and subtraction.
A new machine learning tool can detect and classify different strengths of Islamophobic hate speech on Twitter.
By looking closely at traits like wing feathers and spot patterns, a computer scientist trained an algorithm to recognize individual woodpeckers.
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.
Commentators always like to imagine what players could have done better – we're using AI to prove it.
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.
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.
An algorithm named AICAN has been 'taught' the entire canon of Western art history – and now produces, titles and sells works of its own.
Later this month, Christie's will be auctioning its first piece of AI art – a portrait created via machine learning.
Artificial intelligence and data analytics are transforming the practice of law.
Those warning about a machine takeover typically assume AI will develop super intelligence. Here's what the science says.
New research shows how smart aircraft can learn to use updrafts of warm air to stay in the sky.
The success of current conversational AI is based on the premise that they know and understand nothing of the world.
The Achilles' heel of law technologies: training. Only 10% of such initiatives are aimed at law students, so how should this issue be managed to win the AI race?
Artificial intelligence can detect patterns in your shopping behaviour that can help retailers deliver better deals to you, and then suggest things you never even knew you wanted.
The new technology behind machine learning-enhanced fake videos has a crucial flaw: Computer-generated faces don't blink as often as real people do.
With the iPhone X, facial recognition is spreading throughout society. How does it work? What technologies enable it?
