Millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work. Hiring continues, but there’s far more demand for jobs than supply. As scholars of human resources and management, we believe artificial intelligence could be a boon for job seekers who need an edge in a tight labor market like today’s. What’s more, our research suggests it …

Many attempts to develop artificial intelligence are powered by powerful systems of mathematical logic. They tend to produce results that make logical sense to a computer program — but the result is not very human. In our work building therapy chatbots, we have found using a different kind of logic — one first formalised by …

By partnering with Google, DeepMind is able to bring the benefits of AI to billions of people all over the world.  From reuniting a speech-impaired user with his original voice, to helping users discover personalised apps, we can apply breakthrough research to immediate real-world problems at a Google scale. Today we’re delighted to share the results of …

The upcoming US presidential election seems set to be something of a mess—to put it lightly. Covid-19 will likely deter millions from voting in person, and mail-in voting isn’t shaping up to be much more promising. This all comes at a time when political tensions are running higher than they have in decades, issues that …

Methods from scientific machine learning could address the challenges of testing the stability of rocket engines, researchers report. Time, cost, and safety prohibit testing the stability of a test rocket using a physical build “trial and error” approach. But even computational simulations are extremely time consuming. A single analysis of an entire SpaceX Merlin rocket …

Though 5G—a next-generation speed upgrade to wireless networks—is scarcely up and running (and still nonexistent in many places) researchers are already working on what comes next. It lacks an official name, but they’re calling it 6G for the sake of simplicity (and hey, it’s tradition). 6G promises to be up to 100 times faster than …

An approach inspired by Einstein’s light cones lets AIs make better guesses about what will happen next. It could help predict the effects of drugs. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, but some guesses are a lot better than others. A kicked football will not reverse in midair and return to the kicker’s foot. …

One reason that cyberattacks continue to grow in recent years is that we never actually learn all that much about how they happen. Companies fear that reporting attacks will tarnish their public image, and even those who do report them don’t share many details because they worry that their competitors will gain insight into their …

AI and machine learning (ML) tools and solutions are fundamentally changing how businesses are run. Soon, organizations that are not using AI will be at a disadvantage from those that do and applications that are not AI-powered may feel broken. This week at Google Cloud Next ’20: OnAir we explored how Cloud AI is empowering teams with AI …

How useful are the well-known and hotly contested categories of “male brain” and “female brain”? Among experts, nobody really questions that anatomical sex differences in the brain exist. But since the advent of brain science, the scientific community has been divided over how many differences there are, which ones have been definitively proven, how large …
