In developing a system to help decipher lost languages, MIT researchers studied the language of Ugaritic, which is related to Hebrew and has previously been analyzed and deciphered by linguists. Credit: S.R.K. Branavan System developed at MIT CSAIL aims to help linguists decipher languages that have been lost to history. Recent research […]

Work by Wyss Core Faculty member Peng Yin in collaboration with Collins and others has demonstrated that different toehold switches can be combined to compute the presence of multiple “triggers,” similar to a computer’s logic board. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University DNA and RNA have been compared to “instruction manuals” containing the […]

The black speck circled in the lower left corner of this image is a cluster of recently formed craters spotted on Mars using a new machine-learning algorithm. This image was taken by the Context Camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS It’s the first time machine learning has been […]

MMS look for explosive reconnection events as it flies through the magnetopause — the boundary region where Earth’s magnetic butts up against the solar wind that flows throughout the solar system.

The Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions will address the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and physics fundamental interactions (FI). Credit: Laboratory for Nuclear Science IAIFI will advance physics knowledge — from the smallest building blocks of nature to the largest structures in the universe — and galvanize AI […]

Conceptual illustration of how artificial intelligence classifies various types of galaxies according to their morphologies. Credit: NAOJ/HSC-SSP Astronomers have applied artificial intelligence (AI) to ultra-wide field-of-view images of the distant Universe captured by the Subaru Telescope, and have achieved a very high accuracy for finding and classifying spiral galaxies in those images. […]

Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino Many attempts to develop artificial intelligence are powered by powerful systems of mathematical logic. They tend to produce results that make logical sense to a computer program — but the result is not very human. In our work building therapy chatbots, we have found using a different […]
