Use of dialogue systems such as Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant raises several questions. In recent years, these virtual personal assistants have become the most popular representatives of their field. Although the quality of the communication and the supported languages is improving day-by-day, there are still several concerns.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has entered into a new era, and its rapid development will profoundly affect the everyday life of citizens worldwide. Countries around the world are establishing governmental strategies and initiatives to guide the development of AI. The Chinese government is using the development of AI as a major strategy to enhance national competitiveness and protect national security.

In this blog post, we share our experiences in developing two critical software libraries that many BAIR researchers use to execute large-scale AI experiments: Ray Tune and the Ray Cluster Launcher, both of which now back many popular open-source AI libraries.
Many of us spend a significant portion of our day online and, in doing so, through our interactions with social media and IoT devices, leave a trail of “digital footprints” in our wake. Could this data be used by machine learning algorithms to infer psychometric information about us, including our emotions, attitudes, aptitudes, beliefs and more? A team at the University of Bristol have been finding out.
A new system combining artificial intelligence (AI) with human knowledge promises faster and more accurate cancer diagnosis.
The powerful technology, developed by a team led by engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo, uses digital images of tissue samples to match new cases of suspected cancer with previously diagnosed cases in a database.
Researchers at TU Delft have developed a new material using Bayesian machine learning algorithms. Using the results of their computational simulations they have fabricated two designs at different length scales that transform polymers into supercompressible metamaterials.
COMPRISE (cost-effective, multilingual, privacy-driven voice-enabled services) is a European-funded Horizon 2020 project looking into the next generation of voice interaction services. The project aims to implement a fully private-by-design methodology and tools that will reduce the cost and increase the inclusiveness of voice interaction technology.
Jutting out into the sea, the industrial port area of Nordhavn in Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, is currently being transformed into a futuristic waterfront city district made up of small islets. It’s billed as Scandinavia’s largest metropolitan development project and, when complete, will have living space for 40,000 people and workspace for another 40,000.
At the moment, Nordhavn is only served by a nearby S-train station and bus stops located near the station. There are no buses or trains running within the development area, although there are plans for an elevated metro line, and parking will be discouraged in the new neighbourhood. This is a great opportunity for autonomous vehicles (AVs) to operate as a new public transport solution
