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?
Technological professionals are the first, and last, lines of defense against the misuse of technology.
Machine learning is changing the world in ways that we are just beginning to appreciate. But could it change the way we do science and the reasons why we do science?
Testing new industrial chemicals is essential for public health and the environment. But animal testing is costly, and too many chemicals are left untested. A new AI tool may solve the problem.
With artificial intelligence, machines can now examine thousands of medical images for signs of disease. Will this technology replace doctors – or work side by side with them?
Project Debater looks like machines are ready to understand humans, but the reality is we're still in the earliest days of AI.
