Cosmological architecture and intelligent design are the focus this week as we look at the work of Christopher Knight and Alan Butler. We follow their research into ancient units of measurement, their relationship to our earth, moon, and star and what message this relationship has left behind...
CARA finds cases that you or your opponent missed, using artificial intelligence and data science technologies.
The federal government placed a big bet in this year’s budget on Canada becoming a world leader in artificial intelligence (AI), investing millions of dollars on a national strategy to support research and commercialization. The hope...Show More Summary
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) At the International Conference on Robotics and Automation later this month, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and ETH Zurich will present a system that allows a director to specify a shot's framing -- which figures or faces appear where, at what distance.

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems have developed a soft gripping system that uses differential air pressure and a gecko-inspired adhesive for exceptional bonding to three-dimensional objects. The findings were published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week.
These are some of the big players leading the way in AI research.
DeepMind Technologies Inc. has become one of the best known names in artificial intelligence research thanks partly to its work with AlphaGo, but the Google Inc.-owned AI company may be in some trouble in the United Kingdom. The U.K.’s...Show More Summary
Host of big names join the Partnership on AI to research best practices in the field of artificial intelligence.
(Inderscience Publishers) Writing in the International Journal of Collaborative Intelligence, researchers from Nigeria suggest that botnets and cyber attacks could interfere with infrastructure, healthcare, transportation, and power supply to as devastating an effect as the detonation of explosives of the firing of guns.
by Angela Guess According to a recent press release, “TechEmergence is the only market research and media firm that is 100% focused on artificial intelligence (AI). The firm has recently completed a four-month long research study of over 50 executives running AI-in-healthcare companies. Show More Summary
Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) today announced plans to launch a testing environment in which AI researchers and bot makers can share and iterate upon each other’s work. While the initial focus is on open-sourcing the dialogue necessary to train machines to carry on conversations, other research on ParlAI will focus on computer vision and […]
Humans set themselves apart from other animals in a number of ways, including our ability to make tools. When the anthropologist Jane Goodall discovered that wild chimpanzees frequently make and use tools, her advisor Louis Leakey famously quipped that "now we must redefine tool, redefine man, or accept chimpanzees as humans".
Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that intelligence services should beware of creating software that can later be used for malicious means – a reference to global ‘ransomware’ attacks that researchers say exploited a hacking tool built by the U.S. National Security...
China's first national laboratory for brain-like artificial intelligence (AI) technology was inaugurated Saturday to pool the country's top research talent and boost the technology. China’s rapid rise up the ranks of AI research has the world's scientific community taking notice....
