Welcome to the era of the machine

Welcome to the era of the machine
The 1950s gave us Stevie Wonder, it was a great decade for fashion, and the first television remote control was marketed. Additionally computer scientist Alan Turing developed a way of testing a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behaviour, equivalent to humans. Since the Turing Test was first used, the world has become fixated on the possibility that, one day, a computer could function like a human being.

The truth behind new robot ethics

The truth behind new robot ethics
A new set of standards for the ethical design of robots and robotic devices has been released by the British Standards Institute (BSI). The standards highlight the growing need for guidelines on robotic safety, contact with human beings, robotic deception, addiction and possible sexism or racism exhibited by self-learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems. Graham Mackrell, Managing Director of robotic gearing specialist Harmonic Drive UK, explains the three things industry can take away from the new standard.

Why now for robotics sensing?

Why now for robotics sensing?
Advancements in robotics are moving at a very fast pace, spearing ahead the expected proliferation of robots in new and existing applications. Deploying sensors in robotics allows for the creation of robots that can ‘see’ and ‘feel’, in a biomimetic way, just like humans do.

AI uncovers insight into biophysics of cancer

AI uncovers insight into biophysics of cancer
Scientists from Tufts University's School of Arts and Sciences, the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts, and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County have used artificial intelligence to gain insight into the biophysics of cancer. Their machine-learning platform predicted a trio of reagents that was able to generate a never-before-seen cancer-like phenotype in tadpoles.

Deep learning algorithm helps identify skin cancer

Deep learning algorithm helps identify skin cancer
Universal access to health care was on the minds of computer scientists at Stanford when they set out to create an artificially intelligent diagnosis algorithm for skin cancer. They made a database of nearly 130,000 skin disease images and trained their algorithm to visually diagnose potential cancer. From the very first test, it performed with inspiring accuracy.

The time to reinvent computing is now

The time to reinvent computing is now
A major new report authored by HiPEAC, the European Network on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation, states that the necessary shifts in the way we design, make and use computers in all their forms will amount to a total reinvention of computing.

Parlez-vous tech? French start-ups thrived at CES 2017

Parlez-vous tech? French start-ups thrived at CES 2017
In the lead up to last week’s CES, Gary Shapiro, CEO of the Consumer Technology Association that organises the event branded the lack of UK support to technology firms ‘an embarrassment’. In contrast, he commented that one of the 'novelties' of this year’s show was ‘an exceptionally strong French presence.’

Five innovations that could change our lives in 2017

Five innovations that could change our lives in 2017
The annual 'IBM 5 in 5' has been unveiled by IBM – a list of innovations with the potential to change the way people work, live, and interact during the next five years. In 1609, Galileo invented the telescope and saw our cosmos in an entirely new way. He proved the theory that Earth and other planets in our solar system revolve around the Sun, which until then was impossible to observe.

Verbal working memory architecture has implications for AI

Verbal working memory architecture has implications for AI
The neural structure we use to store and process information in verbal working memory is more complex than previously understood, finds a study by researchers at New York University. It shows that processing information in working memory involves two different networks in the brain rather than one—a discovery that has implications for the creation of artificial intelligence (AI) systems, such as speech translation tools.

Take your pick in the new ‘Amazon Go’ stores

Take your pick in the new ‘Amazon Go’ stores
  Imagine a world without cashiers, tills and mainly, queues. Well this world could become a reality with the new Amazon Go store. The online retailer has devised a store with no checkout required.
