Artificial Intelligence


Algorithms have taken a lot of flak recently, particularly those being used by the government and other public bodies in the UK. The controversial algorithm used to award student grades caused a huge public outcry, but national and local governments and several police forces have been withdrawing other algorithms and artificial intelligence tools from use …

You might have seen a recent article from The Guardian written by “a robot”. Here’s a sample: I know that my brain is not a “feeling brain”. But it is capable of making rational, logical decisions. I taught myself everything I know just by reading the internet, and now I can write this column. My …

“Hey Alexa, turn on the kitchen light.” “Hey Alexa, play soothing music at volume three.” “Hey Alexa, tell me where to find my keys.” You can ask an Alexa or Google home assistant questions about facts, news, or the weather, and make commands for whatever you’ve synced them to (lights, alarms, TVs, etc.). But helping …

The overwhelming ‘Whiteness’ of artificial intelligence – from stock imagery to film robots and the dialects of virtual assistants – is removing people of colour from humanity’s visions of its high-tech future. In their paper, “The Whiteness of AI” published today in the journal, Philosophy and Technology, Leverhulme CFI Executive Director, Stephen Cave and Dr Kanta Dihal offer …

Applying a machine learning technique to a group of possible storm paths could help meteorologists provide more accurate medium-term hurricane forecasts. This approach could also help them issue timely warnings to communities in the path of these potentially deadly storms, report researchers. In a new study, the researchers used machine learning to remove certain groups …

Millions of Americans are unemployed and looking for work. Hiring continues, but there’s far more demand for jobs than supply. As scholars of human resources and management, we believe artificial intelligence could be a boon for job seekers who need an edge in a tight labor market like today’s. What’s more, our research suggests it …

The upcoming US presidential election seems set to be something of a mess—to put it lightly. Covid-19 will likely deter millions from voting in person, and mail-in voting isn’t shaping up to be much more promising. This all comes at a time when political tensions are running higher than they have in decades, issues that …

An approach inspired by Einstein’s light cones lets AIs make better guesses about what will happen next. It could help predict the effects of drugs. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, but some guesses are a lot better than others. A kicked football will not reverse in midair and return to the kicker’s foot. …

Despite billions of dollars spent and decades of research, computation in the human brain remains largely a mystery. Meanwhile, we have made great strides in the development of artificial neural networks, which are designed to loosely mimic how brains compute. We have learned a lot about the nature of neural computation from these artificial brains …

Software intelligence company Dynatrace, announced the extension of its Software Intelligence Platform to support all services from Amazon Web Services (AWS) that publish metrics to Amazon CloudWatch, a fully managed AWS service that provides monitoring and observability of AWS resources and applications on AWS and on-premises environments. Combining Amazon CloudWatch metrics with the data already captured …
