    on February 1, 2022 at 5:00 am

    In this paper, we study the problem of estimating the state of a switched linear system when the observation of the system is subject to communication constraints.

  • Abstractions, Their Algorithms, and Their...
    on February 1, 2022 at 5:00 am

    Jeffrey D. Ullman and Alfred V. Aha are recipients of the 2020 ACM A.M. Turing award. They were recognized for creating fundamental algorithms and theory underlying programming language implementation and for synthesizing these results and those of others in their highly influential books, which educated generations of computer scientists.

  • How Topic Novelty Impacts the Effectiveness of...
    on February 1, 2022 at 5:00 am

    Can algorithmic advice override preconceived notions and the believability of fake news?

  • Solving for Why
    on February 1, 2022 at 5:00 am

    A focus on causality is promising to help researchers overcome shortcomings that have bedeviled more traditional approaches to artificial intelligence.

  • Robot performs first laparoscopic surgery without...
    on January 26, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    A robot has performed laparoscopic surgery on the soft tissue of a pig without the guiding hand of a human -- a significant step in robotics toward fully automated surgery on humans.

  • Technique improves AI ability to understand 3D...
    on January 26, 2022 at 5:25 pm

    Researchers have developed a new technique, called MonoCon, that improves the ability of artificial intelligence (AI) programs to identify three-dimensional (3D) objects, and how those objects relate to each other in space, using two-dimensional (2D) images. For example, the work would help the AI used in autonomous vehicles navigate in relation to other vehicles using the 2D images it receives from an onboard camera.

  • Southern Ocean storms cause outgassing of carbon...
    on January 25, 2022 at 4:25 pm

    Storms over the waters around Antarctica drive an outgassing of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, according to a new international study. The research group used advanced ocean robots for the study, which provides a better understanding of climate change and can lead to better global climate models.

  • Studying the Big Bang with artificial intelligence
    on January 25, 2022 at 2:30 pm

    Artificial intelligence is being used for many extremely complex tasks. So why not use machine learning to study particle physics? As it turns out, this is not easy, because of some special mathematical properties of particle physics. But now, a neural network has been developed that can be used to study quark gluon plasma - the state of the universe after the Big Bang.

  • Harnessing noise in optical computing for AI
    on January 21, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    A research team has developed an optical computing system for AI and machine learning that not only mitigates the noise inherent to optical computing but actually uses some of it as input to help enhance the creative output of the artificial neural network within the system.
