First AI in Space: NLP Robot Joins Space Station Crew

AI in space doesn’t have a very good image—just recall the scene in the science fiction epic “2001: A Space Odyssey” where the supercomputer HAL murders most of a spaceship’s crew. However, space AI is about to get an image makeover, with a friendly robotic assistant that employs technologies including Natural Language Processing (NLP), face…

Students Turn to Object Recognition for Safety

Recent school shootings have spurred students across the country to mobilize. However, instead of hitting the streets in protest, one group of students has turned to object recognition technology to detect and warn of possible threats to schools. The University of Texas at Dallas students have developed a system called iNotify that’s designed to stop…

NASA and Google Use Image Recognition to Discover New Worlds

It’s said there are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand in all the earth’s deserts and beaches—10 times more, by some estimates. So, imagine the plight of planet hunters, who must sort through images of countless stellar bodies to find telltale images of alien worlds. However, by using neural-network-based technology…

Stanford Index Reveals AI Image and Speech Recognition Equaling or Exceeding Human Levels

One of the biggest questions facing the world is exactly when artificial general intelligence (AGI) will achieve the technological singularity, i.e., the point when AI will equal and then surpass human levels. However, new findings from Stanford University indicate that artificial narrow intelligence (ANI) technologies like image and speech recognition are already attaining a technological…

MIT Computer Vision Technology Allows Cars to See Around Corners

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have devised a computer vision system that monitors subtle shadows to detect objects that are hidden from view. The CornerCameras system from the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) observes light reflections to perceive unseen people or things. The computer vision system uses these reflections to estimate the…
