    We are fascinated by machines that can control cars, compose symphonies, or defeat people at chess, Go, or Jeopardy! While more progress is being made all the time in Artificial Intelligence (AI), some scientists and philosophers warn of the dangers of an uncontrollable superintelligent AI. Using […]

    on January 11, 2021 at 4:21 pm

    Like a longtime couple who can predict each other's every move, a new robot has learned to predict its partner robot's future actions and goals based on just a few initial video frames. The study is part of a broader effort to endow robots with the ability to understand and anticipate the goals of […]

  • World's fastest optical neuromorphic processor
    on January 7, 2021 at 4:24 pm

    A Swinburne-led team has demonstrated the world's fastest and most powerful optical neuromorphic processor for artificial intelligence. The neuromorphic processor operates faster than 10 trillion operations per second and is capable of processing ultra-large scale data.

  • Light-carrying chips advance machine learning
    on January 6, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    Researchers found that so-called photonic processors, with which data is processed by means of light, can process information very much more rapidly and in parallel than electronic chips.

  • A robotic revolution for urban nature
    on January 4, 2021 at 6:19 pm

    Drones, robots and autonomous systems can transform the natural world in and around cities for people and wildlife.

  • Spontaneous robot dances highlight a new kind of...
    on December 31, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    Researchers have proposed a new principle by which active matter systems can spontaneously order, without need for higher level instructions or even programmed interaction among the agents. And they have demonstrated this principle in a variety of systems, including groups of periodically […]

  • High-five or thumbs-up? New device detects which...
    on December 21, 2020 at 9:04 pm

    A new device developed by engineers can recognize hand gestures based on electrical signals detected in the forearm. The system, which couples wearable biosensors with artificial intelligence (AI), could one day be used to control prosthetics or to interact with almost any type of electronic device.
