Data


A component of computer processors that connects different parts of the chip can be exploited by malicious agents who seek to steal secret information from programs running on the computer, MIT researchers have found. Modern computer processors contain many computing units, called cores, which share the same hardware resources. The on-chip interconnect is the component …

When users want to send data over the internet faster than the network can handle, congestion can occur — the same way traffic congestion snarls the morning commute into a big city. Computers and devices that transmit data over the internet break the data down into smaller packets and use a special algorithm to decide …

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but thanks to an artificial intelligence program called DALL-E 2, you can have a professional-looking image with far fewer. DALL-E 2 is a new neural network algorithm that creates a picture from a short phrase or sentence that you provide. The program, which was announced by the …

Explanation methods that help users understand and trust machine-learning models often describe how much certain features used in the model contribute to its prediction. For example, if a model predicts a patient’s risk of developing cardiac disease, a physician might want to know how strongly the patient’s heart rate data influences that prediction.   But …

A new tool uses AI and a computer graphics engine to churn out training images tailored for specific AI tasks. Synthetic data are an increasingly popular way of sidestepping the high cost and ethical minefields of learning from real-world examples. A new tool uses AI and a computer graphics engine to churn out training images …

Data visualizations on the web are largely inaccessible for blind and low-vision individuals who use screen readers, an assistive technology that reads on-screen elements as text-to-speech. This excludes millions of people from the opportunity to probe and interpret insights that are often presented through charts, such as election results, health statistics, and economic indicators. When …

Huawei revealed the definition of the Next-Generation Data Center Facility, and unveiled PowerPOD 3.0, a brand-new power supply system, on May 26 in Dongguan, China. The new rollouts, based on the collective wisdom and joint efforts between Huawei Data Center Facility Team and industry experts, reaffirm Huawei’s commitment to building low-carbon, smart data centers.   …

Within years, the deployment of Artificial Intelligence, also known as AI, to execute human tasks is becoming rampant. To save much time and ensure productivity, humans seek other means of executing difficult tasks without wasting so much effort. In search of a credible solution, we resorted to the adoption and integration of AI technologies. Artificial …

How different would we think about artificial intelligence if AI pioneers Allen Newell and Herbert Simon had won support for the seemingly less hype-prone term of “complex information processing,” rather than “artificial intelligence,” which was ultimately adopted by the field? On the surface, this thought experiment is interesting because it asks if artificial intelligence is …

The right advice at just the right moment can make all the difference to employee satisfaction and performance. New AI-driven approaches are making truly personalized, real-time coaching a reality. Great employees are not born. They develop their skills over time, through a combination of on-the-job experience, formal training, coaching, and mentoring—inputs that employers have a high …
