  • Quantum Hype and Quantum Skepticism
    on May 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    The beauty of classical computing is that developing algorithms is incredibly easy. In contrast, in more than 25 years of intense research on quantum computing, only a few dozen algorithms have been developed. […]

  • Compressed Linear Algebra for Declarative...
    on May 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    General-purpose compression struggles to achieve both good compression ratios and fast decompression for blockwise uncompressed operations. Therefore, we introduce Compressed Linear Algebra for lossless matrix compression. […]

  • Implementing Guidelines for Governance, Oversight...
    on May 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    Governance and independent oversight on the design and implementation of all forms of artificial intelligence and automation is a cresting wave about to break comprehensively on the field of IT and computing. […]

  • Questioning Quantum
    on May 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    Researchers hunt for ways to keep quantum computing honest. […]

  • Technical Perspective: Compressing Matrices for...
    on May 1, 2019 at 4:00 am

    Demand for more powerful big data analytics solutions has spurred the development of novel programming models, abstractions, and platforms. "Scaling Machine Learning via Compressed Linear Algebra" seeks to address many of these challenges by applying database ideas. […]

  • Synthetic speech generated from brain recordings
    on April 24, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    A state-of-the-art brain-machine interface created by neuroscientists can generate natural-sounding synthetic speech by using brain activity to control a virtual vocal tract -- an anatomically detailed computer simulation including the lips, jaw, tongue, and larynx. The study was conducted in research participants with intact speech, but the technology could one day restore the voices of people who have lost the ability to speak due to paralysis or neurological damage. […]

  • New way to 'see' objects accelerates the future...
    on April 23, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    Researchers have discovered a simple, cost-effective, and accurate new method for equipping self-driving cars with the tools needed to perceive 3D objects in their path. […]

  • Snake-inspired robot slithers even better than...
    on April 22, 2019 at 3:27 pm

    Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a new and improved snake-inspired soft robot that is faster and more precise than its predecessor. […]

  • Adding human touch to unchatty chatbots may lead...
    on April 18, 2019 at 5:13 pm

    Sorry, Siri, but just giving a chatbot a human name or adding humanlike features to its avatar might not be enough to win over a user if the device fails to maintain a conversational back-and-forth with that person, according to researchers. In fact, those humanlike features might create a backlash against less responsive humanlike chatbots. […]

  • Using the physics of airflows to locate gaseous...
    on April 18, 2019 at 5:13 pm

    Engineers are developing a smart robotic system for sniffing out pollution hotspots and sources of toxic leaks. Their approach enables a robot to incorporate calculations made on the fly to account for the complex airflows of confined spaces rather than simply 'following its nose.' […]
