  • Generative Adversarial Networks
    on November 1, 2020 at 4:00 am

    In this overview paper, we describe one particular approach to unsupervised learning via generative modeling called generative adversarial networks. We briefly review applications of GANs and identify core research problems related to convergence in games necessary to make GANs a reliable technology.

  • Seeking Artificial Common Sense
    on November 1, 2020 at 4:00 am

    The long-standing goal of providing artificial intelligence some measure of common sense remains elusive.

  • Natural Language Misunderstanding
    on November 1, 2020 at 4:00 am

    How do we eliminate bias in automated speech recognition?

  • Terahertz Networks Move Closer to Reality
    on November 1, 2020 at 4:00 am

    The desire for faster, higher-frequency wireless networking is a constant. Terahertz technology could deliver large gains.

  • Technical Perspective: When the Adversary Is Your...
    on November 1, 2020 at 4:00 am

    The key insight of the "Generative Adversarial Networks," by Ian Goodfellow et al., is to learn a generative model's loss function at the same time as learning the model.

  • AI teachers must be effective and communicate...
    on October 30, 2020 at 4:25 pm

    The increase in online education has allowed a new type of teacher to emerge -- an artificial one. But just how accepting students are of an artificial instructor remains to be seen. That's why researchers are working to examine student perceptions of artificial intelligence-based teachers.

  • Trust levels in AI predicted by people's...
    on October 29, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Relationship psychologists have shown that people's trust in artificial intelligence (AI) is tied to their relationship or attachment style.

  • Graphene-based memory resistors show promise for...
    on October 29, 2020 at 12:22 pm

    As progress in traditional computing slows, new forms of computing are coming to the forefront. A team of engineers is attempting to pioneer a type of computing that mimics the efficiency of the brain's neural networks while exploiting the brain's analog nature.

  • Dog training methods help researchers teach...
    on October 26, 2020 at 5:58 pm

    With a training technique commonly used to teach dogs to sit and stay, computer scientists showed a robot how to teach itself several new tricks, including stacking blocks. With the method, the robot, named Spot, was able to learn in days what typically takes a month.

  • 'Spooky' similarity in how brains and computers...
    on October 22, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    The brain detects 3D shape fragments (bumps, hollows, shafts, spheres) in the beginning stages of object vision - a newly discovered strategy of natural intelligence that researchers also found in artificial intelligence networks trained to recognize visual objects.
