Researchers reveal ultra-fast bomb detection method that could upgrade airport security

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain Researchers from the University of Surrey have revealed a new ultra-fast method to detect materials that could be used to build explosives. The new detection method is able to analyze a wider range of materials than current thermal based detection systems used in today’s airports, while reducing false positive reports. […]

Researchers propose method to balance user experience and cloud cost

[ad_1] Credit: CC0 Public Domain For an online gamer, lag is the worst. The gamer watches, telling the avatar to move to avoid another player’s attack, but the avatar does nothing. Then, suddenly, the avatar does all of the commands, rapid fire. It was listening, it just took too long for the commands to process. […]

Researchers develop a method to identify computer-generated text

[ad_1] Credit: Petr Kratochvil/public domain In a world of Deep Fakes and far too human natural language AI, researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and IBM Research asked: Is there a better way to help people detect AI-generated text? That question led Sebastian Gehrmann, a Ph.D. candidate […]
