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?[…]

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[…]
