Virtual Reality can predict human stress vulnerability

We all react to stress in different ways. A sudden loud noise or flash of light can elicit different degrees of response from people, which indicates that some of us are more susceptible to the impact of stress than others. Any event that causes stress is called a “stressor”. Our bodies are equipped to handle Read more about Virtual Reality can predict human stress vulnerability[…]

Artificial Intelligence coach to improve customer service skills

Researchers from Temple University, Sichuan University, and Fudan University published a new paper in the Journal of Marketing that explores the growing use of AI to coach sales agents to determine if there are any caveats that inhibit the effective use of this technology. The study forthcoming, in the the Journal of Marketing, is titled “Artificial Intelligence (AI) Read more about Artificial Intelligence coach to improve customer service skills[…]

New ways to boost trust in artificial intelligence

A University of Kansas interdisciplinary team led by relationship psychologist Omri Gillath has published a new paper in the journal Computers in Human Behavior showing people’s trust in artificial intelligence (AI) is tied to their relationship or attachment style. The research indicates for the first time that people who are anxious about their relationships with humans tend Read more about New ways to boost trust in artificial intelligence[…]

Online education pave the way for AI-teachers

The increase in online education has allowed a new type of teacher to emerge an artificial one. But just how accepting students are of an artificial instructor remains to be seen. That’s why researchers at the University of Central Florida’s Nicholson School of Communication and Media are working to examine student perceptions of artificial intelligence-based Read more about Online education pave the way for AI-teachers[…]

New metaphotonic OLED displays for future Virtual Reality and Augmentation Reality

By expanding on existing designs for electrodes of ultra-thin solar panels, Stanford researchers and collaborators in Korea have developed a new architecture for OLED – organic light-emitting diode – displays that could enable televisions, smartphones and virtual or augmented reality devices with resolutions of up to 10,000 pixels per inch (PPI). (For comparison, the resolutions Read more about New metaphotonic OLED displays for future Virtual Reality and Augmentation Reality[…]

A new haptic device which recreates the sense of touch

What if you could touch a loved one during a video call – particularly in today’s social distancing era of COVID-19 – or pick up and handle a virtual tool in a video game? Pending user tests and funding to commercialise the new technology, these ideas could become reality in a couple of years after Read more about A new haptic device which recreates the sense of touch[…]

Wide personality traits and attributes such as extraversion and IQ were predicted by Social Media information

Principle Investigator HARUNO Masahiko and Dr. MORI Kazuma at the Center for Information and Neural Networks (CiNet), the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT, President: TOKUDA Hideyuki, Ph.D.), report the use of machine learning to analyze behavior on Twitter and predict a wide range of personality traits and attributes such as intelligence and Read more about Wide personality traits and attributes such as extraversion and IQ were predicted by Social Media information[…]

New tool for internet searching

When you search for something on the internet, do you scroll through page after page of suggestions – or pick from the first few choices? Because most people choose from the tops of these lists, they rarely see the vast majority of the options, creating a potential for bias in everything from hiring to media Read more about New tool for internet searching[…]

Quantum secret sharing

Researchers at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, have demonstrated a record setting quantum protocol for sharing a secret amongst many parties. The team created an 11-dimensional quantum state and used it to share a secret amongst 10 parties. By using quantum tricks, the secret can only be unlocked if the parties Read more about Quantum secret sharing[…]

Research defines three new pathways for organisations to manage digital transformation

New research from Professor Feng Li, Chair of Information Management at City’s Business School has outlined three new approaches that digital innovators can take to reduce the risk of failure and seize competitive advantage in the industry. With the coronavirus pandemic forcing many organisations to operate remotely, adoption of the latest secure technologies has taken on greater importance Read more about Research defines three new pathways for organisations to manage digital transformation[…]

Neuromorphic computers with one step closer due to neurotransistors

Especially activities in the field of artificial intelligence, like teaching robots to walk or precise automatic image recognition, demand ever more powerful, yet at the same time more economical computer chips. While the optimization of conventional microelectronics is slowly reaching its physical limits, nature offers us a blueprint how information can be processed and stored Read more about Neuromorphic computers with one step closer due to neurotransistors[…]
