What’s the problem? As algorithms become entrenched into society, the debate about their effects rages on. In essence, algorithms are sequences of instructions used to solve problems and perform functions in computer programming. As mathematical expressions, algorithms existed long before modern computers. While they vary in application, all algorithms have three things in common: clearly-defined …

While AI continues to enjoy a continuously increasing adoption in 2019, much work is still needed in order for it to create significant impact — McKinsey reveals in their released 2019 Global AI Survey paper. Let’s look further into the main findings of this year’s survey. Most respondents are seeing returns from AI 63 percent of …

In today’s factories and warehouses, it’s not uncommon to see robots whizzing about, shuttling items or tools from one station to another. For the most part, robots navigate pretty easily across open layouts. But they have a much harder time winding through narrow spaces to carry out tasks such as reaching for a product at …

The full integration of 5G in our technological terrain will open a world of new innovations and services, radically changing the way that we experience the world. With this in mind, who is currently in the lead when it comes to generating 5G-related innovations? Let’s find out.   This is according to the data of …

With a shortage of new tuberculosis drugs in the pipeline, a software tool can predict how current drugs—including unlikely candidates—can combine in new ways to create more effective treatments. “This could replace our traditional trial-and-error system for drug development that is comparatively slow and expensive,” says Sriram Chandrasekaran, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at the …

A new technique can predict the final size of wildfires from the moment of ignition, researchers report. Built around a machine learning algorithm, the model can help forecast whether a wildfire will be small, medium, or large by the time it has run its course—knowledge useful to those in charge of allocating scarce firefighting resources. …

Besides “fake news”, there’s been another term which has caused many debates around it: deepfake. These seemingly realistic videos that are, in fact, manipulated have become more problematic lately, casting a shadow on the trust people have in media. Can blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI) be used to combat deepfake, to restore the public confidence …
