And on Nov. 2, 2018, NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft crossed into the vastness of interstellar space, following Voyager 1, which made the leap six years earlier. Since their launch in 1977, the two probes have traveled more than 11 billion miles across the solar system, lasting […]

Using artificial intelligence to automate sea-ice charting

Artificial intelligence has been used to analyse high-resolution digital X-ray images of the world famous Ghent Altarpiece, as part of an investigative project led by UCL. The finding is expected to improve our understanding of art masterpieces […]

Scientists develop a traffic monitoring system based on artificial intelligence

[ad_1] Credit: South Ural State University Scientists of South Ural State University have developed a unique intelligent system for monitoring traffic flow using artificial intelligence, which does not require specific recording equipment and can work on almost any type of camera. The system instantly processes data received in real time, unlike existing programs in which […]

Artificial intelligence to predict protein structure

An artificial-intelligence (AI) voice-interactive project, the device called “Not the Only One” is designed to respond to people based on conversations that the multimedia artist, Stephanie Dinkins, had with her […]

Spotting misinformation online via artificial intelligence

[ad_1] Credit: iStock/champja We live in an era of too much information—an endless stream of status updates, memes, reposts, infographics, quotes and hashtags roll daily through our social media feeds, meant to express viewpoints, drum up solidarity, provide information, change minds or cause controversy. Problem is, the average online browser/social media user doesn’t have the […]
