Although only 17 percent of software developers worked with artificial intelligence or machine learning this year, 73 percent of those who did not say they are planning to learn about the technologies next year, according to a survey of 2,500 developers.
Researchers in Japan say they have developed technology capable of distinguishing simultaneous speech from multiple persons, demonstrating simultaneous meal ordering by 11 people and creating a robot game show host that manages multiple contestants answering simultaneously.
Under fire for Facebook Inc.'s role as a platform for political propaganda, co-founder Mark Zuckerberg has punched back, saying his mission is above partisanship.
Engineers at the University of Michigan are using a $3.6-million grant from DARPA to create an impenetrable computer by turning computer circuits into unsolvable puzzles.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a device to demonstrate a way to control the direction of the photocurrent within semiconductor materials without deploying an electric voltage.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has hosted a flu forecasting challenge for the last five years in which academic and industry participants organize predictive models then assesses them at the end of the season.

Last Wednesday, at 3:45 pm, scientists from the Breakthrough Listen project trained the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia on 'Oumuamua—the mysterious, oblong space-rock which last month became the first known object to enter our solar system from elsewhere in the universe—and scanned it for signs of intelligent life.
A technology that could supplant standard silicon transistors as Moore's Law approaches its physical limits is based on devices that work by manipulating the spin of electrons.
Evolutionary computation strategies include a multitude of biologically inspired algorithms for optimizing problems, often those with too many variables to compare all possible scenarios.
