“Clearbuds,” a new kind of wireless earbud, enhance a speaker’s voice and reduce background noise, researchers report. Clearbuds use a microphone system and one of the first machine-learning systems to operate in real time and run on a smartphone. Researchers were inspired to do the work as meetings shifted online during the COVID-19 lockdown and …

Robots are featuring more and more in our daily lives. They can be incredibly useful (bionic limbs, robotic lawnmowers, or robots which deliver meals to people in quarantine), or merely entertaining (robotic dogs, dancing toys, and acrobatic drones). Imagination is perhaps the only limit to what robots will be able to do in the future. …

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but thanks to an artificial intelligence program called DALL-E 2, you can have a professional-looking image with far fewer. DALL-E 2 is a new neural network algorithm that creates a picture from a short phrase or sentence that you provide. The program, which was announced by the …

The EU’s Artificial Intelligence Act aims to regulate AI technologies. Failure to plan could leave some businesses at risk of non-compliance. Proving AI produces measurable value in your sector will be key. The EU strikes again with a new set of regulations that take aim at the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to address the …

Big data analysis has long supported major feats in physics and astronomy. But more recently we’ve seen it underpin breakthroughs in the social sciences and humanities. Since the landmark paper Computational Social Science was published in 2009, a new generation of data analytics tools has given researchers insight into fundamental questions about how we communicate, …

A robot operating with a popular internet-based artificial intelligence system consistently gravitates to men over women, white people over people of color, and jumps to conclusions about peoples’ jobs after a glance at their face. The work is believed to be the first to show that robots loaded with an accepted and widely used model …

Why are we on the verge of creating a technology that will combine the computer with the human nervous system into a single complex? How will a person change after connecting with an electronic machine? Can a computer system handle the flood of data from billions of living neurons? I will try to answer these …

This video by the French computer programmer Damien Henry is a clever visual demonstration of machine learning – a term coined by the US computer scientist Arthur Samuel (1901-1990) to describe an algorithm that gives computers the ‘ability to learn without being explicitly programmed’. Using several videos recorded from windows during train rides, Henry trained an algorithm …

AI marketing is a new way to reach customers that is much more personalized, targeted and engaging than traditional methods. Artificial intelligence is the new frontier of marketing. Marketing with AI has been proven to be a successful strategy for many businesses. It’s is a new way to reach customers and is much more personalized, targeted …

Within years, the deployment of Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, to execute human tasks is becoming rampant. To save much time and ensure productivity, humans seek other means of executing difficult tasks without wasting so much effort. In search of a credible solution, we resorted to the adoption and integration of AI technologies. Artificial …
