Researchers from the Champalimaud Foundation, a private biomedical research lab in Portugal, trained two neural networks to identify and track individual animals within a group. The aim of the study would be to automate the process of studying the behaviour of animals in their communities, The Register reported. “The ultimate goal of our team is […]

CEVA, a leading licensor of signal processing platforms and AI processors for connected devices, announced today the opening of a new research and development facility in Bristol, United Kingdom. The new Research and Development (R&D) centre will enable the company to access the world-class engineering talent the city has to offer, strengthening its R&D capabilities and […]

GammaLab NYC has won the seventh Dialog System Technology Challenge (DSTC7 or “the Challenge”), one of the world’s leading dialogue system challenges. Started by scientists from Microsoft, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Honda Research Institute, the Challenge aims at spotting the best computer systems intended to converse with a human with a coherent structure. This year […]

Self-driving cars technology is being proposed as a potential high-tech solution to the US border wall ‘situation’ at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Las Vegas. Quanergy Systems, together with some other tech firms, are working on Lidar border security, claiming it would come at a far lower cost than a physical wall or […]

New research from FDNA, a leader in artificial intelligence and precision medicine, suggests that facial analysis can now detect genetic disorders much more efficiently. This new technology, the scientists who worked on the study said, will add significant value in personalised care and will become a standard among deep learning based genomic tools. The paper is […]

Intel and Alibaba have announced at CES 2019 a partnership on developing artificial intelligence (AI) technology for 3D-tracking of athletes during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The partnership will bring together Intel hardware and the Alibaba cloud, allowing coaches to extract biomechanical data during training and competition “without the use of special sensors or suits”, Intel […]

Scientists at Cardiff University have developed a new computer programme that can spot if someone has lied to police about being robbed. The new software is called VeriPol, and it analyses the phrasing of a victim’s statement in order to identify particular signs of fake reports. The technology has been tested by Spanish police with […]

A new study by Lauren Rhue, Information Systems PhD Student at NYU Stern School of Business, showed that emotional analysis technology assigns more negative emotions to black men’s faces than white men’s faces. Published last month on, the study aims to better understand the hidden bias in artificial intelligence software. In order to do so, Rhue […]

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) could save companies that are able to scale and expand the scope of their existing deployments about $340 billion, according to a new global study from French technology services Capgemini. The study, which is titled “Building the Retail Superstar: How unleashing AI across functions offers a multi-billion dollar opportunity”, […]

Artificial intelligence (AI) developed by the University of Surrey can help in predicting cancer symptoms in individual patients, according to new research published in the PLO One journal. The researchers from the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (CVSSP) who worked on the study, believe it might be the first one of its kind. They created two […]
