‘Deep learning processes are reaching their limits’
Deep learning for the development and training of large AI models is reaching its limits. This is what researchers at the American university MIT concluded in a recent study. The reason for this is that the required computing power can no longer grow.
Deep learning is nowadays widely used for de... Read more
MIT and IBM develop AI that recommends documents per topic
In an effort to provide faster and better performance than most methods to date, a combined team from the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab and the MIT Geometric Data Processing Group came up with a technique that combines a number of popular AI tools.
The researchers say their approach can scan millions of... Read more
Research by MIT and IBM promises to provide AI with contextual knowledge
Scientists at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab are working on an approach that will eliminate a number of long-term obstacles in the design of artificial intelligence (AI) models. The resulting programs should be able to learn about the world by observing it.
Where people can learn a lot about an environme... Read more
Researchers develop an underwater sensor without a battery
MIT researchers have developed a new underwater sensor that works without batteries. The sensor generates electricity through piezoelectric materials, which vibrate when a sound wave hits them.
The sensor does not use any batteries, and uses very little energy at all. However, the device can tra... Read more
MIT’s AI tool can recognise breast cancer five years before development
MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab has developed a predictive artificial intelligence (AI) model, which can predict the development of breast cancer five years before that time. The model is also designed to be as accurate for white women as it is for dark women.
The researchers... Read more
MIT announces plans for new AI university
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has announced plans to create a new one-billion-dollar university where students are taught artificial intelligence (AI). That says Silicon Angle. The aim is to provide education for a future in which AI has a role in every scientific discipline.
The n... Read more
MIT, Cisco, Google and USPTO launch Prior Art Archive for better patents
Google, Cisco, MIT's Media Lab and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) jointly launched the Prior Art Archive. The initiative aims to improve patents, says TechCrunch.
"The patent research process should prevent patents from being given to old or obvious technologies," says MIT. Th... Read more
Artificial intelligence can develop prejudices
Based on thousands of simulations, MIT researchers argue that artificial intelligence is not free of prejudice. Not only can they learn from people, but robots can also teach themselves prejudices, as it were.
The researchers report this to the TechCrunch site. The MIT researchers set up a simulati... Read more
