Smart factory using AI methods

Small parts can cause big problems. Worn or defective components in industrial plants can bring an entire production process to a standstill. But artificial intelligence is helping businesses to anticipate when problems are likely to arise. A new data system identifies faults early on and proposes effective corrective action. A team of academic and industrial Read more about Smart factory using AI methods[…]

€10 billion for 2021-2027 to develop and expand breakthrough innovations

The European Commission launched today, at an online event, the European Innovation Council (EIC) with a budget of over €10 billion (in current prices) for 2021-2027 to develop and expand breakthrough innovations. Building on a successful pilot programme under Horizon 2020, the new EIC is not only a novelty of Horizon Europe, but it is also unique in the Read more about €10 billion for 2021-2027 to develop and expand breakthrough innovations[…]

Action Plan on Synergies between civil, defence and space industries

The European Commission presents an Action Plan on Synergies between civil, defence and space industries to further enhance Europe’s technological edge and support its industrial base. The Action Plan is devised against the background that, for the first time, EU funding presents opportunities to reinforce European innovation by exploring and exploiting the disruptive potential of Read more about Action Plan on Synergies between civil, defence and space industries[…]

Exploring and developing the quantum brain

An intelligent material that learns by physically changing itself, similar to how the human brain works, could be the foundation of a completely new generation of computers. Radboud physicists working toward this so-called “quantum brain” have made an important step. They have demonstrated that they can pattern and interconnect a network of single atoms, and Read more about Exploring and developing the quantum brain[…]

Photonic neuromorphic computing to process data in a fast and energy efficient way

Scientists have given a fascinating new insight into the next steps to develop fast, energy-efficient, future computing systems that use light instead of electrons to process and store information – incorporating hardware inspired directly by the functioning of the human brain. A team of scientists, including Professor C. David Wright from the University of Exeter, Read more about Photonic neuromorphic computing to process data in a fast and energy efficient way[…]

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[…]

Enhancing energy efficiency of artificial synapses

A joint research led by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has built an ultralow-power consumption artificial visual system to mimic the human brain, which successfully performed data-intensive cognitive tasks. Their experiment results could provide a promising device system for the next generation of artificial intelligence (AI) applications. The research team is led by Professor Johnny Chung-yin Ho, Read more about Enhancing energy efficiency of artificial synapses[…]

New EU Sustainable & Smart Mobility Strategy

The European Commission presented today its ‘Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy’ together with an Action Plan of 82 initiatives that will guide our work for the next four years. This strategy lays the foundation for how the EU transport system can achieve its green and digital transformation and become more resilient to future crises. As outlined in Read more about New EU Sustainable & Smart Mobility Strategy[…]

E-skins keeps shifting future at a spectacular pace

A material that mimics human skin in strength, stretchability and sensitivity could be used to collect biological data in real time. Electronic skin, or e-skin, may play an important role in next-generation prosthetics, personalized medicine, soft robotics and artificial intelligence. “The ideal e-skin will mimic the many natural functions of human skin, such as sensing Read more about E-skins keeps shifting future at a spectacular pace[…]

AI system to discover new materials without requiring additional training from scientists

When the words “artificial intelligence” (AI) come to mind, your first thoughts may be of super-smart computers, or robots that perform tasks without needing any help from humans. Now, a multi-institutional team including researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has accomplished something not too far off: They developed an AI algorithm Read more about AI system to discover new materials without requiring additional training from scientists[…]

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[…]
