Technology has played huge roles in global development, mostly in reducing human efforts and addressing commercial challenges. But these impacts are not felt in the most difficult challenges facing humanity. Though artificial intelligence offers the opportunities to remodel predictive human behaviors and structures challenging social justice, a few challenges have kept this from not happening. Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly becoming more ubiquitous in the processes of our daily lives. Most significantly, industries are ...
“AI is a human right,” theoretical neuroscientist Vivienne Ming said in 2018. Her professional career is focused on exploring ways to improve human potential with artificial intelligence. Ming is not just a firm believer that tech will become a more integral part of our existence but proving it by turning her autistic son into a cyborg. Ming wanted to help her son after he was diagnosed with autism. Ming built a face- and expression-recognition system for Google Glass that will in real-time interpret people’s facial expressions. Mos...
With artificial intelligence now able to create convincing, fake article news that can fool people on a mass scale, scientists have a new task: creating algorithms that can prevent such news from spreading across the internet. A team of researchers from the University of Washington has developed a new tool that could be useful in taming potential damages from AI-generated fake news which are usually based on lurid headlines. Referred to as GROVER, the system can detect and write fake, misleading news articles that are even more convi...
About 20 percent of children suffer from “internalizing disorders” commonly referred to as anxiety and depression. And adults are tasked with recognizing potential mental health problems in children by inferring to their mental state because it’s difficult for children under the age of eight to articulate their emotional suffering. But the process is always difficult and most times result in late treatments. By using the speech patterns of children, a newly developed Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithm can detect signs of internali...
Samsung Electronics lifted the curtains from its first 85-inch 8K QLED TV in a press conference at Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) 2018, Berlin. It released a full range of 8K Q900R series TVs available in four big sizes – 65”, 75”, 82” and 85”, each of them packed with 8K AI Upscaling technology. “We’re thrilled to introduce the Q900R to consumers and are confident that they will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound on our new 8K-capable models,” said Jongsuk Chu, Senior Vice President of Vi...
In order to showcase the competency in artificial intelligence, Sony Corporation is re-launching its iconic robotic dog, aibo (Artificial Intelligence roBOt) in the United States after more than a decade. The Japanese company announced the arrival of aibo at a press event in New York on Thursday. The US launch of aibo called the First Litter Edition will be available for a limited time at a whopping price of $2,899. The pre-orders will begin in September and the company expects to ship the consumer robot dogs during the holiday seaso...
The dominance of Adobe Photoshop in the world of image editing may soon start to crack. A team of researchers from MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has proposed an AI-assisted image editing tool which can automatically segregate each set of layers of an input image. The MIT researchers working on the project have still not given a commercial name to the revolutionary image editing tool. For now, they’re chosen to call it by the foundational technology involved, Semantic Soft Segmentation (SSS). ...
Facebook AI research team and NYU School of Medicine have collaborated to investigate the benefits of employing artificial intelligence (AI) technology on MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan. The mission of the team is to boost the speed of the imaging process up to ten times and revolutionize medical care department. Larry Zitnick representing the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) group and Daniel Sodickson, M.D., Ph.D., and Michael Recht, M.D., from NYU School of Medicine have associated on this project named fastM...
Facebook Inc. enters the club of tech companies developing their own artificial intelligence (AI) chip. The social network giant hired Shahriar Rabii as its Vice President and Head of Silicon this month, reports Bloomberg. He will probably report to Andrew Bosworth, the company’s Head of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Facebook now follows the footprint of the Silicon Valley suite building own chips. The tech cluster comprises of iPhone maker Apple Inc., Alphabet Inc.’s Google, pioneer of Prime culture, Amazon.com Inc. and Chi...
Watching a music video and could not hear your favorite instrument’s notes among the loud drums? Thanks to MIT researchers, they have developed artificial intelligence (AI) based software, PixelPlayer that can single out each instrument playing in the video and make it louder or softer. Pixel Player is a new AI project paved the way from MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). A team of MIT researchers led by Hang Zhao, a Ph.D. student at CSAIL has proposed to devise a deep-learning system that can analyz...
