How Companies Can Help Engineers and Scientists with Machine Learning

Machine learning is increasingly influencing how we engage with the objects around us, from fitness trackers and digital assistants to our TVs. With mounting pressure to make “smart” consumer products, tech companies are looking to their engineering teams to implement machine-learning algorithms into a growing number of new devices. However, because it’s still largely an […]

Eye on A.I.— Celebrating the Godfathers of Deep Learning

Artificial intelligence’s growing importance, in both business and research, is largely because of Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yann LeCun—otherwise known as the “godfathers of deep learning.” Last week, the trio won the annual Turing Award, the technology world’s equivalent to the Nobel Prize, presented by the Association for Computing Machinery. Their research has led […]

Modified deep-learning algorithms unveil features of shape-shifting proteins

Using artificial neural networks designed to emulate the inner workings of the human brain, deep-learning algorithms deftly peruse and analyze large quantities of data. Applying this technique to science problems can help unearth historically elusive solutions. One such challenge involves a biophysical phenomenon known as protein folding. Although researchers know that proteins must morph into […]

The mass shooting in New Zealand shows how broken social media is

A gunman live-streamed the murder of dozens of innocents in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Friday—and the world got a terrible reminder of how flawed existing social-media policies and algorithms are for policing violent and offensive content. In the days before the shooting, the perpetrator apparently boasted of his plans and posted an […]

Machine learning is implemented on an IBM quantum processor

Machine-learning algorithms have been run on a quantum computer by physicists at IBM. Although the proof-of-concept demonstration did not involve practical tasks, the team hopes that scaling-up the algorithms to run on larger quantum systems could give machine learning a boost. Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that involves a computer working-out how […]

Finding Defects In Chips With Machine Learning

Chipmakers are using more and different traditional tool types than ever to find killer defects in advanced chips, but they are also turning to complementary solutions like advanced forms of machine learning to help solve the problem. A subset of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning has been used in computing and other fields for decades. […]

MIT Develops Machine Learning Algorithm To Fight AI-Generated Text

With artificial intelligence taking a major leap in recent years and estimates showing it will likely grow even more, we have seen many discoveries which could do more harm than good. One such example is the text-generator developed by OpenAI. The machine learning algorithm can turn only a small portion of text into lengthy and convincing […]
