In 2020, Detroit police arrested a Black man for shoplifting almost $4,000 worth of watches from an upscale boutique. He was handcuffed in front of his family and spent a night in lockup. After some questioning, however, it became clear that they had the wrong man. So why did they arrest him in the first …

Formula One race simulations. Self-learning artificial intelligence. Petabyte-scale video streaming. Real-time transactions for auctions. Behind the numbers that show accelerating demand for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) are stories like these, stories of the world’s leading companies bringing a huge range of workloads to OCI. From containers to AI to ERP, companies like GoTo, Aleph Alpha, …

Artificial intelligence research is constantly developing new hypotheses that have the potential to benefit society and industry; however, sometimes these benefits are not fully realized due to a lack of engineering tools. To help bridge this gap, graduate students in the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science’s 6-A Master of Engineering (MEng) Thesis …

You can also try transforming into an evil doll. Halloween is fast approaching, but you’ll probably have to postpone the parties this year and instead spend a lonesome evening at home with a bottle of scotch. Well, that’s my plan anyway. Still, the social restrictions don’t mean you can’t experiment with devilish new looks from the …

The existential threat of COVID-19 has highlighted an acute need to develop working therapeutics against emerging health threats. One of the luxuries deep learning has afforded us is the ability to modify the landscape as it unfolds — so long as we can keep up with the viral threat, and access the right data. As …

For entrepreneurial MIT students looking to put their skills to work for a greater good, the Media Arts and Sciences class MAS.664 (AI for Impact) has been a destination point. With the onset of the pandemic, that goal came into even sharper focus. Just weeks before the campus shut down in 2020, a team of …

“Artificial intelligence is transforming all sectors of the economy, but there’s no reason to fear that robots will replace all human employees. In fact, companies that automate their operations mainly to cut their workforces will see only short-term productivity gains, say the authors. Their research, involving 1,500 firms in a range of industries, shows that …

MIT engineers and researchers in South Korea have developed a sweat-proof “electronic skin” — a conformable, sensor-embedded sticky patch that monitors a person’s health without malfunctioning or peeling away, even when a wearer is perspiring. The patch is patterned with artificial sweat ducts, similar to pores in human skin, that the researchers etched through the …

Making a career change, no matter how big or small is never an easy feat. However, when you’re moving to a field that requires as much technical knowledge as data science, things can get exponentially more difficult. That’s why proper preparation is essential. But here’s the thing: no matter how well-prepared we are, there will …

‘Artificial Intelligence’ or AI has drastically improved the world around us in many different ways. However, there are still many notable concerns with regard to its overall impact on employment all over the globe. Many people have been understandably worried that AI will lead to literally millions of unemployed individuals who might be out on the …
