How would an artificial intelligence (AI) decide what to do? One common approach in AI research is called “reinforcement learning”. Reinforcement learning gives the software a “reward” defined in some way, and lets the software figure out how to maximise the reward. This approach has produced some excellent results, such as building software agents that …

The past may be a fixed and immutable point, but with the help of machine learning, the future can at times be more easily divined. Using a new type of machine learning method called next generation reservoir computing, researchers at The Ohio State University have recently found a new way to predict the behavior of …

AI In Accounting And Finance Industry Artificial intelligence (AI) is playing a vital role in the digital transformation of accounting and finance. AI machines take over the burden of doing repetitive and time-consuming tasks. Artificial Intelligence in accounting reduces human intervention. Herein, we discussed how AI applications and AI services help finance experts in accomplishing their regular responsibilities …

Lockheed Martin recently delivered the first flight software package for the nation’s next-generation intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) interceptor ahead of schedule. Lockheed Martin’s Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) program completed its first official software release in August 2022. The delivery of this first incremental flight software to the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) marks a critical step …

Wearing a mask can help prevent the spread of viruses such as SARS-CoV-2, but a mask’s effectiveness depends on how well it fits. Currently, there are no simple ways to measure the fit of a mask, but a new sensor developed at MIT could make it much easier to ensure a good fit. The sensor, …

While automated manufacturing is ubiquitous today, it was once a nascent field birthed by inventors such as Oliver Evans, who is credited with creating the first fully automated industrial process, in flour mill he built and gradually automated in the late 1700s. The processes for creating automated structures or machines are still very top-down, requiring …

Automated decisions that gig workers can’t make sense of or challenge are controlling millions of working lives, even deciding when to deprive some of the means to earn a living. When you’re a gig economy driver, every move you make is monitored. Every job offered – accepted or refused – every price point presented, every …

Around three quarters of years lived with disability are conditions that could benefit from physical rehabilitation – but there aren’t enough physical therapists (PT) to go around. The growing need is racing alongside population growth, and aging as well as higher rates of severe ailments, even within the same age group, are contributing to the problem. An …

Warning: this film features visual effects that could be unsuitable for photosensitive viewers. Ghosts is part of an ongoing project in which the Istanbul-based media artist Vadim Epstein explores AI technology via animation. Epstein created the video’s trippy, shapeshifting visuals through a program called StarGAN v2, which uses a neural network to generate new images …

Data sources that “teach” artificial intelligence could amplify and worsen disparities in health care, says law professor Nicholson Price. Those data sources are not representative and/or are based on data from current unequal care, says Price, a member of the University of Michigan’s Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation. In a recent article in Science, Price and colleagues Ana Bracic of Michigan State University …
