Fueled by artificial intelligence, the world may be entering — or perhaps already in — another cold war, with Russia leading the way.
Our solar system now is tied for most number of planets around a single star, with the recent discovery of an eighth planet circling Kepler-90, a Sun-like star 2,545 light-years from Earth. The planet was discovered in data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.
The mysterious discovery was made by harnessing Google’s machine learning prowess
Researchers say social, ethical and political concerns are mounting and greater oversight is urgently needed
An artificial intelligence system being developed at Facebook has created its own language. It developed a system of code words to make communication more efficient. Researchers shut the system down when they realized the AI was no longer using English.
Although the scientists behind it would really rather you didn’t
Rich people are going to find it easier to adapt to automation
CERN and the Large Hadron Collider depend on a massive computer grid, as does the global network of scientists who use LHC data. CERN scientists are now teaching an AI system to protect the grid from cyber threats using machine learning.
Who needs humans?
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed an AI that can analyze CT scans to predict if a patient will die within five years with 69 percent accuracy. This system could eventually be used to save lives by providing doctors with a way to detect illnesses sooner.
