This illustration represents the overfitted brain hypothesis of dreaming, which claims that the sparse and hallucinatory quality of dreams is not a bug, but a feature, since it helps prevent the brain from overfitting to its biased daily sources of learning.

Simulations of a region of space 100 million light-years square. The leftmost simulation ran at low resolution. Using machine learning, researchers upscaled the low-res model to create a high-resolution simulation (right). That simulation captures the same details as a conventional high-res model (middle) while requiring significantly fewer computational resources. Credit: […]

The AI developed by IIT researchers will analyzing satellite images in order to detect traces of hidden archaeological sites.

The project will last three years and will be carried out […]

CIMON will assist astronauts on the International Space Station. Credit: NASA/Kim Shiflett, CC BY Artificial intelligence has been making waves in recent years, enabling us to solve problems faster than traditional computing could ever allow. Recently, for example, Google’s artificial intelligence subsidiary DeepMind developed AlphaFold2, a program which solved the protein-folding problem. […]

MIT researchers have developed an automated way to design customized hardware, or “brains,” that speeds up a robot’s operation. A new system devises hardware architectures to hasten robots’ response time. Contemporary robots can move quickly. “The motors are fast, and they’re powerful,” says Sabrina Neuman. Yet in complex situations, like interactions with […]

New technology from Stanford scientists finds long-hidden quakes, and possible clues about how earthquakes evolve. Tiny movements in Earth’s outermost layer may provide a Rosetta Stone for deciphering the physics and warning signs of big quakes. New algorithms that work a little like human vision are now detecting these long-hidden […]

Schematic representation of a processor for matrix multiplications which runs on light. Credit: University of Oxford The exponential growth of data traffic in our digital age poses some real challenges on processing power. And with the advent of machine learning and AI in, for example, self-driving vehicles and speech recognition, […]

Scientists at Freie Universität Berlin develop a deep learning method to solve a fundamental problem in quantum chemistry. A team of scientists at Freie Universität Berlin has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) method for calculating the ground state of the Schrödinger equation in quantum chemistry. The goal of quantum chemistry […]
