A new system called Early Bird makes training deep neural networks, a form of artificial intelligence, more energy efficient, researchers report. Deep neural networks (DNNs) are behind self-driving cars, intelligent assistants, facial recognition, and dozens more high-tech applications. Early Bird could use 10.7 times less energy to train a DNN to the same level of …

Artificial intelligence (AI) is learning more about how to work with (and on) humans. A recent study has shown how AI can learn to identify vulnerabilities in human habits and behaviours and use them to influence human decision-making. It may seem cliched to say AI is transforming every aspect of the way we live and …

Are you aware of how the buying and selling of stocks were carried out when there was no internet or computers? Back then, stock exchanges had active trading floors filled with brokers and traders. To make a trade or a purchase, they had to shout or use hand signals to alert others about their buy …

Can you fool Artificial Intelligence? No? Think again. Three years ago, Apple launched IphoneX with cutting-edge facial recognition technology. This advanced AI technique (Face ID) replaced the old fingerprint recognition technology (Touch ID). The latest technology claimed to be more secure and robust. However, shortly after the launch of Face ID, researchers from Vietnam breached …

Elon Musk thinks the advent of digital superintelligence is by far a more dangerous threat to humanity than nuclear weapons. He thinks the field of AI research must have government regulation. The dangers of advanced artificial intelligence have been popularized in the late 2010s by Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates & Elon Musk. But Musk alone …

By using both human and machine-generated translations, key health phrases can be translated into local languages spoken all over the world. You might not know, but there are currently 7,117 languages spoken in the world. Not dialects, but living languages! However, much of the world’s digital media is available in only a couple dozen languages, and …

Conservationists say we need to plant one trillion trees to help slow climate change. Now a robot forester has been developed to help speed up reforestation. The robot is capable of planting a hectare of trees in under six hours. The vehicles can also be used to prepare the ground for planting, and can even …

Artificial Intelligence has powerfully penetrated the way we live. It doesn’t only change the way we work but also reshaped how we used to live. Speaking of AI, it is one of the most interesting technologies that we’ve ever encountered. Without a doubt, AI is contributing a lot in boosting business and IT productivity. Therefore, …

If everything moved 40,000 times faster, you could eat a fresh tomato three minutes after planting a seed. You could fly from New York to L.A. in half a second. And you’d have waited in line at airport security for that flight for 30 milliseconds. Thanks to machine learning, designing materials for new, advanced technologies …

The hype around AI is growing rapidly, as most research companies predict AI will take on an increasingly important role in the future. While business leaders are very interested in leveraging machine learning technology, there’s a talent shortage standing in the way. It turns out that there are very few developers that have the skills …
