Machine Learning


Smartwatches and other battery-powered electronics would be even smarter if they could run AI algorithms. But efforts to build AI-capable chips for mobile devices have so far hit a wall – the so-called “memory wall” that separates data processing and memory chips that must work together to meet the massive and continually growing computational demands …

“Machine learning is compute-intensive.” Advances in innovation to capture and process a lot of data have left us suffocating in information. This makes it hard to extricate insights from data at the rate we get it. This is the place where machine learning offers some benefit to a digital business. We need strategies to improve …

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of those concepts that conjures up polar opposite but equally inaccurate visions of the future. There’s the dark, apocalyptic AI from science fiction movies where an all-powerful computer system gains a level of self- awareness, turns against humanity and unleashes armies of killer cyborgs. There’s also the warm and fuzzy …

This month, Google forced out a prominent AI ethics researcher after she voiced frustration with the company for making her withdraw a research paper. The paper pointed out the risks of language-processing artificial intelligence, the type used in Google Search and other text analysis products. Among the risks is the large carbon footprint of developing …

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer the stuff of science fiction. In the form of machine learning tools and decision-making algorithms, it’s all around us. AI determines what news you get served up on the internet. It plays a key role in online matchmaking, which is now the way most romantic couples get together. It …

Have you ever wondered what, fundamentally, scientifically, makes a piece of cake different from a slice of bread or a cookie? Me neither. But now this important, controversial question finally has an answer, thanks to explainable machine learning. (Sort of.) In machine learning, explainability is the study of how we can make models more interpretable, …

Rackspace Technology™, a leading end-to-end multicloud technology solutions company, announced it has worked with Humen.Ai, an Machine Learning (ML)-core company that uses deep learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to create personalized interactive content, to rebuild Humen.Ai’s Sway: Magic Dance iOS application, using serverless and machine learning technologies to realize significant cost and functionality improvements. Humen.Ai …

Using a trained neural network and data from the North Anatolian Fault in Turkey, a research team led by Los Alamos National Laboratory revealed the first direct observation of rupture propagation during a slow earthquake. The research will be presented Dec. 15, 2020 at the AGU Fall Meeting. Applying AI to interferometric synthetic aperture radar …

What’s New: Consilient, a newly formed company dedicated to establishing a next-generation system for anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT), launched a new secure, federated learning platform powered by Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX). The artificial intelligence (AI) platform aims to prevent financial crime and enable secure collaboration among financial institutions while …

In a classic experiment on human social intelligence by Warneken and Tomasello, an 18-month old toddler watches a man carry a stack of books towards an unopened cabinet. When the man reaches the cabinet, he clumsily bangs the books against the door of the cabinet several times, then makes a puzzled noise. Something remarkable happens …
