You can add the cult classic Super Smash Bros Melee to the list of games soon to be dominated by AIs. Research at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has produced a computer player superior to the drones you can already fight in the game. It’s good enough that it held its own against globally-ranked players. Read More
A trio of University of Toronto grads take on the legal-research giants with artificial intelligence tools.
(University of Cincinnati) Researchers at the University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science are using artificial intelligence called fuzzy logic to get drones to navigate and land themselves on moving platforms. This holds promise for commercial uses such as delivering packages from moving vehicles.
Microsoft has made some impressive leaps forward in the world of artificial intelligence (AI), but this might be its biggest yet. Microsoft Research, in conjunction with Cambridge University, has developed an AI that’s able to solve programming problems by reusing lines of code cribbed from other programs. Show More Summary
Baidu, a Chinese tech giant making rapid advances in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), has received funding from the Chinese government for a new research project, Quartz reports. AI has the potential to be of the most influential technologies that humanity has ever invented. Show More Summary
A new artificial intelligence (AI) program built by Microsoft and Cambridge University researchers is able to solve programming problems — by stealing code from other programs. It's called DeepCoder, and by cribbing bits of code from...Show More Summary
Programming has often been considered one of the few safe jobs out there that cannot be automated away, but that may no longer be the case thanks to a new artificial intelligence designed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Microsoft Corp. Show More Summary
Telescopes, the workhorse instruments of astronomy, are limited by the size of the mirror or lens they use. Using 'neural nets', a form of artificial intelligence, a group of Swiss researchers now have a way to push past that limit, offering scientists the prospect of the sharpest ever images in optical astronomy.

Quantum biomimetics consists of reproducing in quantum systems certain properties exclusive to living organisms. Researchers at University of the Basque Country have imitated natural selection, learning and memory in a new study. The mechanisms developed could give quantum computation a boost and facilitate the learning process in machines.
Researchers at the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands have developed a DNA computer that can respond to the presence of specific antibodies and make calculations, with the potential for intelligent drug delivery in the future. Show More Summary
Researchers at MIT have created a power supply for small electronic devices that “sips” energy by turning devices on with packets of energy rather than a steady stream. Most power converters release a steady voltage. This means they’re generally inefficient for small devices like sensors and other devices that don’t need to be constantly on. The MIT’s… Read More
Researchers at George Mason University are developing a tool combining intelligent computer software and high-level crowdsourcing that will allow intelligence analysts to give sound advice to decision makers in high-pressure situati...
(George Mason University) The federal government's Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) awarded researchers at George Mason University's Volgenau School of Engineering a highly competitive $7.4 million contract to research, develop and evaluate an intelligent analytical tool called Co-Arg, short for cogent argumentation system with crowd elicitation.

EXCLUSIVE: Mobile game companies aren’t known for doing deep research into technology, but times are changing. Jam City has hired artificial intelligence expert Rami Sahadi and experimental psychologist Lisa Spano to be the anchors of a new research and development team at the Los Angeles mobile game publisher. Josh Yguado, president and chief operating officer at […]

Researchers from the UGR and UMA have designed a technique that aims to model high-level data abstractions to make computers learn to differentiate the brain of a healthy person from that of an ill person by extracting the affected regions.
The last few years have seen IBM Corp. apply its Watson artificial intelligence to a wide variety of areas ranging from speech recognition to drug research. But the company can’t address every single use case alone, a limitation that it’s now looking to remove. Show More Summary
Metro Transit sent 12 people to Houston this month to research how transit operated amid the Super Bowl at NRG Stadium and festivities leading up to the big game.
