AI systems shed light on root cause of religious conflict

Artificial intelligence can help us to better understand the causes of religious violence and to potentially control it, according to a new Oxford University collaboration. The study is one of the first to be published that ...

NASA researchers teach machines to 'see'

Your credit card company contacts you asking if you've purchased something from a retailer you don't normally patronize or spent more than usual. A human didn't identify the atypical transaction. A computer—equipped with ...

Toward language inference in medicine

Recent times have witnessed significant progress in natural language understanding by AI, such as machine translation and question answering. A vital reason behind these developments is the creation of datasets, which use ...

An evaluation of mouse dynamics for intrusion detection

Researchers at Sapientia University in Romania and Université de Lyon have recently carried out a performance evaluation of unrestricted mouse usage for impostor detection. Their findings, pre-published on arXiv, suggest ...

Computers use social media data to predict crime

In a study published in the EPJ Data Science journal, the team of RMIT researchers show how location and activity data from users of the Foursquare app, when coupled with recommendation algorithms, allows us to predict crimes ...

New tool streamlines the creation of moving pictures

It's often easy to imagine balloons soaring or butterflies fluttering across a still image, but realizing this vision through computer animation is easier said than done. Now, a team of researchers has developed a new tool ...

Making 'smart headlights' with machine learning

It's a common scene for anybody driving at night on a dark road. Zipping around corners and over hills, the car's high beams are on to improve vision while the driver's hand remains poised to turn them off at a moment's notice, ...

Using AI to create new fragrances

Skilled perfumers bring art and science together to design new fragrances, a talent that takes ten or more years to develop. Crafting a fragrance that leaves an impression is one of the most important components a consumer ...

Bible helps researchers perfect translation algorithms

In search of inspiration for improving computer-based text translators, researchers at Dartmouth College turned to the Bible for guidance. The result is an algorithm trained on various versions of the sacred texts that can ...

Artificial intelligence will make you smarter

The future won't be made by either humans or machines alone – but by both, working together. Technologies modeled on how human brains work are already augmenting people's abilities, and will only get more influential as ...
