Graphene as a new hardware security device

As more private data is stored and shared digitally, researchers are exploring new ways to protect data against attacks from bad actors. Current silicon technology exploits microscopic differences between computing components to create secure keys, but artificial intelligence (AI) techniques can be used to predict these keys and gain access to data. Now, Penn State Read more about Graphene as a new hardware security device[…]

A super-intelligent machine that controls the world sounds like less science fiction and more reality

We are fascinated by machines that can control cars, compose symphonies, or defeat people at chess, Go, or Jeopardy! While more progress is being made all the time in Artificial Intelligence (AI), some scientists and philosophers warn of the dangers of an uncontrollable superintelligent AI. Using theoretical calculations, an international team of researchers, including scientists Read more about A super-intelligent machine that controls the world sounds like less science fiction and more reality[…]

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[…]

A new approach for more trust in Artificial Intelligence

One of the biggest impediments to adoption of new technologies is trust in AI. Now, a new tool developed by USC Viterbi Engineering researchers generates automatic indicators if data and predictions generated by AI algorithms are trustworthy.  Their research paper, “There Is Hope After All: Quantifying Opinion and Trustworthiness in Neural Networks” by Mingxi Cheng, Read more about A new approach for more trust in Artificial Intelligence[…]

Artificial Intelligence more like the doctor

Artificial intelligence (AI) is an important innovation in diagnostics, because it can quickly learn to recognize abnormalities that a doctor would also label as a disease. But the way that these systems work is often opaque, and doctors do have a better “overall picture” when they make the diagnosis. In a new publication, researchers from Read more about Artificial Intelligence more like the doctor[…]

Patent research grants – call for proposals 2020

The EPO is pleased to announce a new call for proposals for funding under its Academic Research Programme. The EPO recognises the importance of high-quality research on patent-related intellectual property (IP) matters to inform policymakers and facilitate sound business decisions in a context where intangible assets, innovation and IP rights have become pivotal in the Read more about Patent research grants – call for proposals 2020[…]

Teaching the computer to teach

Intelligent tutoring systems have been shown to be effective in helping to teach certain subjects, such as algebra or grammar, but creating these computerized systems is difficult and laborious. Now, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have shown they can rapidly build them by, in effect, teaching the computer to teach. Using a new method that Read more about Teaching the computer to teach[…]

How ordinary consumers could reliably verify the operation of systems by using human senses

Many new applications aim to make information systems and machines identify their users and take their individual needs and emotions into account. VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd studied how ordinary consumers could reliably verify the operation of systems by using human senses. In the future, machines and AI systems will have a deeper Read more about How ordinary consumers could reliably verify the operation of systems by using human senses[…]
