"Here's the problem with artificial intelligence today," says David Cox.
Two computer scientists are recognized for pushing the boundaries of machine learning and cybersecurity.
As NASA's Cassini spacecraft made its fateful dive into the upper atmosphere of Saturn on Sept. 15, the spacecraft was live-streaming data from eight of its science instruments, along with readings from a variety of engineering systems.
You can trace the extent of our reliance on air travel to many inventions. The jet engine, perhaps, or the aeroplane itself. But sometimes inventions need other inventions to unlock their full potential.
Researchers at UC San Diego have developed a robotic gripper that can pick up and manipulate objects without needing to see them in advance.
Researchers at Brown University say they have used data gathered from 3-D microscopy instruments to create an immersive visualization where scientists can view inside a single drop of water to examine plankton and how they function within their environment.
A team of researchers is developing a fully automatic method that combines biophysical models of tumor growth with machine-learning algorithms to analyze magnetic resonance imaging data of glioma patients.
Researchers at the University of Michigan are using a U.S. National Science Foundation grant to examine the difference between teaching and learning in traditional lecture halls and more flexible classrooms.
Hany Farid, a computer scientist at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, specialises in detecting manipulated images and videos. Farid, who provides his services to clients as varied as universities, media organizations, and law courts, says that image manipulation is becoming both more frequent and more sophisticated.
