Communications, transportation, and commerce have been inextricably intertwined since the beginning of human history until quite recently, and they still remain closely related today.

“The success of the first electronic telegraph line in 1844 opened an era of modern communication in America. Before the telegraph there existed no separation between transportation and communication. Information traveled only as fast as the messenger who carried it.” Media and the American Mind (Czitrom, D. J., 1982)

This reality was even codified in the Dewey Decimal library classification system: 380 Commerce, communications, transportation

    on May 17, 2019 at 6:51 pm

    Machine learning can help bring to Earth the clean fusion energy that lights the sun and stars. Researchers are using this form of artificial intelligence to create a model for rapid control of plasma -- the state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions -- that fuels fusion reactions. […]

    on May 15, 2019 at 8:54 pm

    A new article introduces a new way of combining perception and motor commands using the so-called hyperdimensional computing theory, which could fundamentally alter and improve the basic artificial intelligence (AI) task of sensorimotor representation -- how agents like robots translate what they sense into what they do. […]

  • New AI sees like a human, filling in the blanks
    on May 15, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    Computer scientists have taught an artificial intelligence agent how to do something that usually only humans can do -- take a few quick glimpses around and infer its whole environment, a skill necessary for the development of effective search-and-rescue robots that one day can improve the effectiveness of dangerous missions. […]

  • Quantum cloud computing with self-check
    on May 15, 2019 at 5:17 pm

    With a quantum coprocessor in the cloud, physicists have opened the door to the simulation of previously unsolvable problems in chemistry, materials research or high-energy physics. In a new study, researchers report how they simulated particle physics phenomena on 20 quantum bits and how the quantum simulator self-verified the result for the first time. […]
