Over the last century, scientists have developed methods to map the structures within the Earth’s crust, in order to identify resources such as oil reserves, geothermal sources, and, more recently, reservoirs where excess carbon dioxide could potentially be sequestered. They do so by tracking seismic waves that are produced naturally by earthquakes or artificially via …

IBM (IBM) and marine research organization Promare, have announced that a new ‘AI Captain’, which will enable the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) to self-navigate across the Atlantic later this year, is to go to sea this month for testing. The trial, which will take place on a manned research vessel off the coast of Plymouth in the …

3D Photos feature on Facebook launched in 2018 as a new, immersive format for sharing pictures with friends and family. The feature has relied on the dual-lens “portrait mode” capabilities available only in new, higher-end smartphones, however. So it hasn’t been available on typical mobile devices, which have only a single, rear-facing camera. To bring this …

The enterprise applications for artificial intelligence and machine learning seem to grow by the day. To take advantage of everything AI/ML technologies have to offer, it’s important to have a platform that supports your needs fully—whether you’re a developer, a data scientist, an analyst, or just interested in AI. But with so many features and …

Machine learning technology continues to improve at a rapid pace, with increasingly accurate models being used to solve more complex problems. However, with this increased accuracy comes greater complexity. This complexity makes debugging models more challenging. To help with this, last November Google Cloud introduced Explainable AI, a tool designed to help data scientists improve their …

ABB’s Robotics & Discrete Automation (RA) business presented its strategy to drive profitable growth at an event for the financial community held at its Solutions Center in Friedberg, Germany. The business is well positioned to outgrow the market with the broadest portfolio of offerings, innovation strength, global footprint and deep domain expertise, supporting its customers’ …

For all the progress researchers have made with machine learning in helping us doing things like crunch numbers, drive cars and detect cancer, we rarely think about how energy-intensive it is to maintain the massive data centers that make such work possible. Indeed, a 2017 study predicted that, by 2025, internet-connected devices would be using 20 …

Being a cybersecurity analyst at a large company today is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack — if that haystack were hurtling toward you at fiber optic speed. Every day, employees and customers generate loads of data that establish a normal set of behaviors. An attacker will also generate data while …

The rapid development of artificial intelligence technologies around the globe has led to increasing calls for robust AI policy: laws that let innovation flourish while protecting people from privacy violations, exploitive surveillance, biased algorithms, and more. But the drafting and passing of such laws has been anything but easy. “This is a very complex problem,” …

Battery performance can make or break the electric vehicle experience, from driving range to charging time to the lifetime of the car. Now, artificial intelligence has made dreams like recharging an EV in the time it takes to stop at a gas station a more likely reality, and could help improve other aspects of battery …
