Forging a photo is easy, but how do you spot a fake?
Faking photographs is not a new phenomenon. The Cottingley Fairies seemed convincing to some in 1917, just as the images recently broadcast on Russian television, purporting to be satellite images showin ...
Professor proposes alternative to 'Turing Test'
(Phys.org) —A Georgia Tech professor is offering an alternative to the celebrated "Turing Test" to determine whether a machine or computer program exhibits human-level intelligence. The Turing Test - originally ...
Drone in flight test learns on the fly with special chip
Calculating encryption schemes' theoretical security guarantees eases comparison, improvement
Most modern cryptographic schemes rely on computational complexity for their security. In principle, they can be cracked, but that would take a prohibitively long time, even with enormous computational resources.
Next for DARPA: 'Autocomplete' for programmers
Writing computer programs could become as easy as searching the Internet. A Rice University-led team of software experts has launched an $11 million effort to create a sophisticated tool called PLINY that ...
Researchers create first image-recognition software that greatly improves web searches
Dartmouth researchers and their colleagues have created an artificial intelligence software that uses photos to locate documents on the Internet with far greater accuracy than ever before.
Image descriptions from computers show gains
Saving lots of computing capacity with a new algorithm
The control of modern infrastructure such as intelligent power grids needs lots of computing capacity. Scientists of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg have ...
Magic tricks created using artificial intelligence for the first time
Researchers working on artificial intelligence at Queen Mary University of London have taught a computer to create magic tricks.
Ant behavior might shed insight on problems facing electronics design
Michael Hsiao plans to harness swarm intelligence based on the efficient behavior of ants. Why would this matter?
Model for evaluating product-recommendation algorithms suggests that trial and error get it right
Devavrat Shah's group at MIT's Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) specializes in analyzing how social networks process information. In 2012, the group demonstrated algorithms that could ...
Algorithm, not live committee, performs author ranking
Scientists use supercomputers to search for innovative answers to rare-earth supply needs
Our lives depend on our electronics – our cellphones and computers. In turn, our electronics depend on a special class of elements known as rare-earths. Computers, cellphones, electric vehicles, televisions, and more are ...
