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?[…]

Touch-and-know with haptic feedback

Have you ever wondered whether the brains of right-handed people work differently from those of left-handers? Is it possible to distinguish between them by observing their brain activity in response to stimuli or tasks? These are important questions from the perspectives of both basic sciences and application-based fields such as brain-computer interfaces, rehabilitation robotics, and Read more about Touch-and-know with haptic feedback[…]

New European rules and actions for trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI)

The Commission proposes today new rules and actions aiming to turn Europe into the global hub for trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI). The combination of the first-ever legal framework on AI and a new Coordinated Plan with Member States will guarantee the safety and fundamental rights of people and businesses, while strengthening AI uptake, investment and innovation across the EU. Read more about New European rules and actions for trustworthy Artificial Intelligence (AI)[…]

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[…]
