Breaking AI and machine vision news from around the world
  • Engineers pre-train AI computers to make them...
    on September 22, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    Engineers have developed a new machine-learning method that paves the way for artificial intelligence to be used in applications that until now have been deemed too sensitive. The method, which has been tested by running simulations on a climate-control system for a 100-room building, is poised to […]

  • New theory predicts movement of different animals...
    on September 22, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    A research team has developed a new theory that can predict the movement of an animal's sensory organs -- such as eyes, ears and nose -- while searching for something vital to its life.

  • A computer predicts your thoughts, creating...

    Researchers have developed a technique in which a computer models visual perception by monitoring human brain signals. In a way, it is as if the computer tries to imagine what a human is thinking about. As a result of this imagining, the computer is able to produce entirely new information, such as […]

  • The brain's memory abilities inspire AI experts...
    on September 17, 2020 at 5:55 pm

    Artificial intelligence (AI) experts report that they have successfully addressed what they call a 'major, long-standing obstacle to increasing AI capabilities' by drawing inspiration from a human brain memory mechanism known as 'replay.'

  • New data processing module makes deep neural...
    on September 16, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    Artificial intelligence researchers have improved the performance of deep neural networks by combining feature normalization and feature attention modules into a single module that they call attentive normalization. The hybrid module improves the accuracy of the system significantly, while using […]

  • Security software for autonomous vehicles
    on September 16, 2020 at 3:36 pm

    Before autonomous vehicles participate in road traffic, they must demonstrate conclusively that they do not pose a danger to others. New software prevents accidents by predicting different variants of a traffic situation every millisecond.

  • Future autonomous machines may build trust...
    on September 15, 2020 at 11:42 pm

    Research has extended the state-of-the-art in autonomy by providing a more complete picture of how actions and nonverbal signals contribute to promoting cooperation. Researchers suggested guidelines for designing autonomous machines such as robots, self-driving cars, drones and personal assistants […]

  • Light processing improves robotic sensing, study...
    on September 14, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    A team of researchers uncovered how the human brain processes bright and contrasting light, which they say is a key to improving robotic sensing and enabling autonomous agents to team with humans.

  • Experiments reveal why human-like robots elicit...
    on September 10, 2020 at 3:08 pm

    Experiments reveal a dynamic process that leads to the uncanny valley, with implications for both the design of robots and for understanding how we perceive one another as humans.

  • Tool transforms world landmark photos into 4D...
    on September 9, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Using publicly available tourist photos of world landmarks such as the Trevi Fountain in Rome or Top of the Rock in New York City, researchers have developed a method to create maneuverable 3D images that show changes in appearance over time.
