Sixteen years ago, many of us held a printout of directions in one hand and the steering wheel in the other to get around— without information about the traffic along your route or details about when your favorite restaurant was open. Since then, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of what a map can do, propelled …

It is both very clever and simple and you could use this same model for many image classification applications. FMMLs Odei Garcia-Garin et al. from the University of Barcelona have developed a deep learning-based algorithm able to detect and quantify floating garbage from aerial images. They also made a web-oriented application allowing users to identify …

Google Cloud AI is baked into our work with customers all over the world. We’ve partnered with organizations to use AI to make new predictions, automate business processes, forecast flooding and even combat climate change and chronic diseases.

One fundamental truth about the internet is that it has lots of outdated information. Just think about the many news articles written in the early weeks of the COVID-19 …

What the research is: Across the thousands of different languages spoken by humans, the way we use words to represent different colors is remarkably consistent. For example, many languages have two distinct words for red and orange, but no language has many distinct commonly used words for various tonalities of orange. (Of course, if you …

How does the human brain decide someone is beautiful? It is something universal or subjective? This AI attempts to help give us some answers to these questions. This AI reads your brain to generate personally attractive faces. It generates images containing optimal values for personal attractive features on a human face! While we instantaneously recognize …

Explaining, interpreting, and understanding the human mind presents a unique set of challenges. Doing the same for the behaviors of machines, meanwhile, is a whole other story. As artificial intelligence (AI) models are increasingly used in complex situations — approving or denying loans, helping doctors with medical diagnoses, assisting drivers on the road, or even …

As humanity continues to implement new AI-solutions into many industries, the question of these projects’ usefulness and ethics is still often debated. Experts emphasize that developers of any new AI-tool must check its for goodness’, be responsible for its safety and consider its potential risk of harm. Still, the question of who should control the …

Did you ever daydream about fighting crime like Batman? You know, using the Bat computer to get intel on a certain criminal or track their whereabouts, to be alerted when a crime is in progress, or even remotely deploy robotic measures to stall or detain a villain. Now your fantasies are closer to reality with …
