EUV machines to swing into commercial action in 2015
Combining computer science, statistics creates machines that can learn
Learning a subject well means moving beyond the recitation of facts to a deeper knowledge that can be applied to new problems. Designing computers that can transcend rote calculations to more nuanced understanding has challenged ...
Our ambiguous world of words
(Phys.org) —Ambiguity in language poses the greatest challenge when it comes to training a computer to understand the written word. Now, new research aims to help computers find meaning.
Alan Turing's legacy is even bigger than we realise
Alan Turing is one of the world's best-known mathematicians, and probably the best known in the past century. This is partly for his work on cracking German codes in World War II, and partly for his arrest, ...
