A new artificial intelligence program automatically detects in real time when a subject in a video draws a gun.
There's nothing new about worrying that superintelligent machines may endanger humanity, but the idea has lately become hard to avoid.
Oi, AI—What do you think you're looking at? Understanding why machine learning algorithms can be tricked into seeing things that aren't there is becoming more important with the advent of things like driverless cars.
In a bygone analog era, lawmakers and corporate chiefs traveled great distances to swap secrets, to the smoke-filled back rooms of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, or the watering holes at the annual Allen & Company conference in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Researchers at Stanford University have contributed to the creation of a digital visual archive charting Rome's evolution over the centuries.
Researchers have introduced a novel representation of waves that improves computational efficiency by at least an order of magnitude.
Researchers have developed a system called Fractal that enables up to 88-fold acceleration in a parallelism strategy known as speculative execution.
The European Union is underwriting the roBot for Autonomous unDerGround trenchless opERations, mapping, and navigation (BADGER) project.
VNect is a new system for capturing human movements digitally in three dimensions in real time using a single video camera.
Physicists using the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, have discovered a new kind of heavy particle, they announced this week at a conference in Venice.
Loosely modeled after the brain, deep neural networks are spurring innovation across science.
The rise of robots has long been a topic for sci-fi best sellers and video games and, as of this week, a threat officially taken seriously by central bankers.
The idea of building a computer that uses light rather than electricity goes back more than half a century.
Researchers at the University of Denver have demonstrated spin transport through a synthetic material that is amorphous, or non-ordered, both magnetically and structurally.
The University of California, Santa Cruz has launched a new data science research center that provides a platform for collaboration between industry and academia in the data science space.
Researchers suggest artificial intelligence could greatly benefit robotic exploratory spacecraft by giving them autonomy.
A recent study suggests brainwave-sensing electroencephalograph headsets need better security.
Self-driving cars. They're the future of transportation—and they're getting smarter all the time.
Travel restrictions appear to have had minimal impact on conference attendance so far.
The former head of DARPA, Arati Prabhakar, has a dream. It's a civilian utopian neuroscience dream that's kind of the inverse of the scenarios that the far-out research wing of the military normally develops.
