New rules to ensure the safety of machinery and robots

The Commission welcomes the political agreement reached by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on a new Machinery Regulation. It revises the existing Machinery Directive and adapts the rules to address the emerging risks and challenges posed by new technologies to machinery products and ensure these can be operated safely. The Read more about New rules to ensure the safety of machinery and robots[…]

HR technosolutionism could be better

Recent years have seen the emergence of AI tools marketed as an answer to lack of diversity in the workforce, from use of chatbots and CV scrapers to line up prospective candidates, through to analysis software for video interviews. Those behind the technology claim it cancels out human biases against gender and ethnicity during recruitment, Read more about HR technosolutionism could be better[…]

New liability rules on products and AI to protect consumers

The Commission adopted two proposals to adapt liability rules to the digital age, circular economy and the impact of global value chains. Firstly, it proposes to modernise the existing rules on the strict liability of manufacturers for defective products (from smart technology to pharmaceuticals). The revised rules will give businesses legal certainty so they can Read more about New liability rules on products and AI to protect consumers[…]

The Future Is Now: Artificial Intelligence In Oil & Gas At AUTOMA 2022

Artificial Intelligence Save Energy

With energy prices soaring, heating costs will also inevitably rise in the coming winter. In order to mitigate this, solutions for operating buildings more efficiently are needed. The Empa spin-off viboo has developed an algorithm that makes it possible to operate even older buildings with around 25 percent less energy – while user comfort remains Read more about Artificial Intelligence Save Energy[…]

How the next-generation of AI can be integrated into the innovation process for designing new and existing materials

More than a century has passed since Thomas Edison developed the first electric light bulb, yet Edison’s hallmark approach of ‘trial and error’ to reach his discovery still remains a large part of today’s inventions. Now, a team of engineers at the University of Missouri is embodying the age-old adage of “work smarter, not harder” Read more about How the next-generation of AI can be integrated into the innovation process for designing new and existing materials[…]

Next-generation of AI and machine learning to take advantage over innovation process

More than a century has passed since Thomas Edison developed the first electric light bulb, yet Edison’s hallmark approach of ‘trial and error’ to reach his discovery still remains a large part of today’s inventions. Now, a team of engineers at the University of Missouri is embodying the age-old adage of “work smarter, not harder” Read more about Next-generation of AI and machine learning to take advantage over innovation process[…]

Intelligent metasurface as an emerging research direction involving various disciplines

The manipulation of electromagnetic waves and information has become central to our daily lives. Intelligent metasurfaces have emerged as smart platforms for controlling the wave-information-matter interactions without manual intervention. They evolved from engineered composite materials, including metamaterials and metasurfaces. As a society, we have witnessed significant progress of metamaterials and metasurfaces with different forms and Read more about Intelligent metasurface as an emerging research direction involving various disciplines[…]

Brain-based computing chips not just for AI anymore

With the insertion of a little math, Sandia National Laboratories researchers have shown that neuromorphic computers, which synthetically replicate the brain’s logic, can solve more complex problems than those posed by artificial intelligence and may even earn a place in high-performance computing. A random walk diffusion model based on data from Sandia National Laboratories algorithms Read more about Brain-based computing chips not just for AI anymore[…]

AI-powered apps reduced business risks during the pandemic

A new study has found that artificial intelligence (AI) apps helped protect small and medium-sized businesses against many of the risks that emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic – yet only a quarter of small firms currently use them. The research, undertaken by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and published in the journal Information Systems Frontiers, surveyed 317 Read more about AI-powered apps reduced business risks during the pandemic[…]

Neural Holography bridging simulation and reality

Virtual and augmented reality headsets are designed to place wearers directly into other environments, worlds and experiences. While the technology is already popular among consumers for its immersive quality, there could be a future where the holographic displays look even more like real life. In their own pursuit of these better displays, the Stanford Computational Imaging Read more about Neural Holography bridging simulation and reality[…]

What if that second medical opinion could be generated by a computer, using artificial intelligence?

It’s an old adage: there’s no harm in getting a second opinion. But what if that second opinion could be generated by a computer, using artificial intelligence? Would it come up with better treatment recommendations than your professional proposes? A pair of Canadian mental-health researchers believe it can. In a study published in the Journal of Applied Behavior Read more about What if that second medical opinion could be generated by a computer, using artificial intelligence?[…]
