Scientists are teaching computers to diagnose soybean stress

[ad_1] Unmanned aerial vehicles could be equipped with hyperspectral technology capable of detecting wavelength ranges beyond those detectable by the human eye. Such technology could combine with machine learning techniques under development at Iowa State to help farmers anticipate stress among their crops before symptoms appear.

Keeping high-performance computers cybersecure

[ad_1] Credit: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is leading efforts to address next generation computing’s critical role in protecting the nation from cybersecurity threats. PNNL’s Center for Advanced Technology Evaluation (CENATE) sponsored a roundtable earlier this month to bring the high-performance computing community together and tackle cybersecurity challenges. “This roundtable enabled researchers […]

Building computers the way our brains work

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain We are approaching the limit for how much more microprocessors can be developed. Gunnar Tufte proposes building computers in a completely new way, inspired by the human brain and nanotechnology. Gunnar Tufte is a professor of computer technology, but his research has taken him in some surprising directions. He’s now […]

Seeing how computers 'think' helps humans stump machines and reveals AI weaknesses

[ad_1] Credit: University of Maryland The holy grail of artificial intelligence is a machine that truly understands human language and interprets meaning from complex, nuanced passages. When IBM’s Watson computer beat famed “Jeopardy!”  champion Ken Jennings in 2011, it seemed as if that milestone had been met. However, anyone who has tried to have a […]
