Some AI systems make faulty assumptions about women and nonwhite men, which can lead to misdiagnoses. Overcoming this bias takes legal, regulatory and technical fixes.
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.
Innovative border control technologies may be great for governments cracking down on migration — but they could further disadvantage groups that are already vulnerable.
As the use of robots and autonomous machines increases across industries, governments need to have a strategy in place. The labour force will transition out of automated tasks into new jobs.
Robots and humans can be friends – but not in a way that would win Aristotle's approval.
AI chatbots can provide mental health support for people who are isolated during the COVID-19 pandemic.
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.
Our children should no longer be taught formulaic writing. Writing education should encompass skills that go beyond the capacities of artificial intelligence.
Psychological assessment and treatment is based on well-defined rules, which makes it ripe for a robot takeover.
Like other innovations borne out of challenging times in history, the push for more automation and tele-operation triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic must mean more efficient and safer workplaces.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is stepping down. His successor's AI experience may hold clues for the retail giant's future.
The robots are 'born' via 3D printer, and recycle themselves upon their 'death'.
The revolution in AI harbours dangers for humanity – here's why.
Artificial intelligence can help us venture further in space.
Artificial intelligence is supported by an infrastructure of hardware and software that is growing increasingly present in our lives, yet remains hidden in plain view.
The 1921 play R.U.R. introduced the world to the word ‘robots’. Its plot is remarkably similar to robot stories told today.
We have unwittingly volunteered our faces in social media posts and photos stored in the cloud. But we've yet to determine who owns the data associated with the contours of our faces.
Artificial intelligence is becoming increasingly common across aspects of our lives. But what role should it play in how we find love?
AI algorithms can solve hard problems and learn incredible tasks, but they can't explain how they do these things. If researchers can build explainable AI, it could lead to a flood of new knowledge.
