The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration has issued a challenge to programmers to boost the performance of its Pleiades supercomputer.
Researchers say they have developed an artificial intelligence system that has learned to ask questions of its own.
Eighteen teams participated in a competition to develop algorithms that can estimate how humans will perceive a particular odor from its molecular properties.
Most robots are programmed using one of two methods: learning from demonstration, in which they watch a task being done and then replicate it, or via motion-planning techniques such as optimization or sampling, which require a programmer to explicitly specify a task's goals and constraints.
Nigerian health officials won't have to rely on flawed, decade-old census data when they plan deliveries of the measles vaccine next year.
A new ultra-low-power system of sensors can transmit data to a central receiver by reflecting the ambient radio waves already in office environments.
CAPTIVE is an inexpensive controller for manipulating virtual objects in a computer program in three dimensions.
A new partnership aims to address the shortage of computer science teachers by developing a training program for pre-service math and science educators.
