Researchers have developed artificial intelligence that reproduces the characteristic process of Darwinian evolution. The research from the University of the Basque Country uses quantum simulation to create the first quantum artificial life on the cloud by emulating the behaviour of living systems. The authors of the study said this research aims  at designing “a set of quantum […]

Amazon announced yesterday an enhancement to its Comprehend platform that allows developers to build lists of specialised words and phrases without machine learning domain knowledge. Tons of ML announcements coming up next week; so many we pulled a few forward… introducing a big step for Comprehend: Build Your Own Natural Language Models on #AWS (no […]

The Center for the Future of Work has launched a new tool to provide insight into how the jobs of the future will change thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and other next-generation digital technologies. The program is called The Cognizant Jobs of the Future Index and is able to analyse 50 specific occupations, taking […]

NIMS and the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago have jointly developed a Computer-Aided Material Design (CAMaD) system able to extract information from thousands of scientific and technical articles to be summarised in a single chart. The study the software is based on was published in Science and Technology of Advanced Materials on September 19, 2018. The new […]

London-based technology start-up Kheiron Medical has received funding from the Government to use artificial intelligence (AI) to automate part of the screening process for breast cancer, the Telegraph reported on Sunday. The medical trial is a result of the collaboration with the East Midlands Radiology Consortium, which works across seven NHS Trusts in the East […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) will be able to spot early signs of Alzheimer’s disease years before a patient would normally be diagnosed, research has shown. Published in the journal Radiology, the new study shows a self-learning computer program able to recognise features in brain scans which are too subtle for humans to see. “Differences in the pattern […]

Five new AI (artificial intelligence) centres are set to open next year across the UK, backed by £50m in government funding, the site announced on Tuesday. The centres will be based at universities, and NHS facilities in London, Glasgow, Oxford, Leeds and Coventry and are expected to be up and running at some point […]
