Now that AI systems can generate realistic images and convincing prose, are creative and knowledge workers endangered or poised for productivity gains? A panel of experts says it’s not so clear-cut.
The AI AlphaFold can figure out the three-dimensional protein structure any string of amino acids will become. It has now exceeded its training by figuring out what makes some proteins glow.
‘Vicootes’, ‘wa ch zod rea’ and other strings of gibberish seem to have special meanings to state-of-the-art AI models. What’s going on here?
Using machine learning, we analysed meaning and feeling in different translations of an ancient Hindu holy text.
New software that can generate images and text on command may deliver ‘good enough’ creativity in advertising, copywriting, stock imagery and graphic design.
Using a form of artificial intelligence called deep neural networks, researchers can generate new proteins from scratch without having to consult nature.
The ethics of AI are constantly debated. But does anyone ask the AI?
Machine learning algorithms can help public health officials identify areas of high vaccine hesitancy by ZIP code to better target messaging and outreach and counter misinformation.
Common sense is a broad and diverse set of abilities that help define what it means to be human. AI researchers are struggling to endow computers with it.
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.
Advanced techniques allowed our research team to build an open database of billions of individual trees and challenge some common perceptions about vegetation in arid and semi-arid zones.
The public holds self-driving cars to incredibly high safety standards – and we’re working to meet them.
Neural networks today do everything from cameras to translations. A professor of computer science provides a basic explanation of how neural networks work.
Fake videos generated with sophisticated AI tools are a looming threat. Researchers are racing to build tools that can detect them, tools that are crucial for journalists to counter disinformation.
Text generators like GPT-3 can produce remarkably convincing writing, but they can’t do away with human supervision just yet.
It’s easy to edit video of public figures to make them appear asleep, confused, drunk or cognitively impaired when they are not. The technique is being used to undermine Joe Biden’s campaign.
Pathogens rapidly evolve resistance to antibiotics. AI could keep us a step ahead of deadly infections.
Predicting life expectancy remains in the realm of science fiction, but it may soon be possible. Are we prepared for such information? And who else would benefit from this knowledge?
A research lab at the University of Saskatchewan is pursuing the applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning to healthcare diagnoses.
Why are three-pointer shots from the corner more efficient than the ones above the break? The answer: More than 90 percent of corner three-point shots are assisted.
