Researchers have developed an artificial intelligence-based biometric verification system for identifying a person by their specific gait.
NASA's Dawn spacecraft is maneuvering to its lowest-ever orbit for a close-up examination of the inner solar system's only dwarf planet.
ACM A.M. Turing Award recipients David Patterson and John Hennessy developed the "dangerous" idea that software should be simpler so it can be executed more quickly, which evolved into the Reduced Instruction Set Computer architecture.
Neural networks can deliver surprising, and sometimes unwanted, results.
A variety of techniques allow sensors to locate and recognize objects in space.
Are technology companies maximizing profits by making users addicted to their products?
It can crack your smartphone password in seconds, rip personal data from call and messaging apps, and peruse your contact book.
Part of the wonder of seeing new worlds is the radical difference from the planet you know.
Tufts University researchers have developed an enhanced algorithm for localizing and tracking mobile devices that distributes the task among the devices themselves.
Two years ago, an autonomous underwater vehicle from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute located an underwater wreck containing $17 billion in sunken treasure.
The race is on to build the world's first meaningful quantum computer—one that can deliver the technology's long-promised ability to help scientists do things like develop miraculous new materials, encrypt data with near-perfect security and accurately predict how Earth's climate will change. Such a machine is likely more than a decade away, but IBM, Microsoft, Google, Intel and other tech heavyweights breathlessly tout each tiny, incremental step along the way.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee considers the past, present, and future of the World Wide Web.
Fei-Fei Li is among the brightest stars in the burgeoning field of artificial intelligence, somehow managing to hold down two demanding jobs simultaneously: head of Stanford University's A.I. lab and chief scientist for A.I. at Google Cloud, one of the search giant's most promising enterprises.
Surveillance systems that track the locations of cellphone users and spy on their calls, texts and data streams are being turned against Americans as they roam the country and the world, say security experts and U.S. officials.
Brookings Survey Finds Worries Over AI Impact on Jobs and Personal Privacy, Concern U.S. Will Fall Behind China
A new Brookings Institution survey has found Americans' concerns about artificial intelligence include job reduction, as well as threats to humanity and personal privacy.
Researchers have created a "home-built" cryogenic near-field optical microscope that allowed them to directly image the propagation and dynamics of graphene plasmons.
The way technology companies recruit candidates during on-campus information sessions could play a role in dissuading women from such jobs, a new study has found.
Researchers have highly maneuverable autonomous boats that, in waterway-rich cities, could be used to transport people or deliver goods.
The first ultrasound-firewall for mobile devices takes the form of a mobile application that detects acoustic cookies, brings them to the attention of users, and blocks the tracking if necessary.
Researchers have confirmed that the more frequently users see security warnings on computers and phones, the more they ignore them.
