A lot of people studying labor automation predicts that the total number of jobs today may not keep up with population growth unlike what we have seen in the past, even the bare minimum. However, recent job prospects will likely get worse for those between the ages of 18 to 34 right now as jobs nowadays are becoming easier to automate.
Meet this next-level AI that can learn from experience and move with more flexibility.
Tesla's new radar technology for Autopilot is already proving useful in a lot of potentially dangerous situations. However, a new incident report makes it clear that the report is valid.
While people do believe the biggest impact of machine learning lies in developments in the Silicon Valley, we may all be wrong.
In March 2016, a Syrian refugee named Rakan Ghebar started seeing a counsellor. He works at a vice-principal at a school for displaced Syrian children, and when he was asked for advice, he was always told to focus on the present.
More than 80 participants are part of a study that wants to explore the potential of virtual reality in relieving anxiety. This means students such as Amanda Chodak has been transported away from the snowy patches of Mount Royal University's campus and into a beach in California.
2016 has been a big year for technological developments. There's been a shift towards the consumer experience, and it will continue in 2017. However there is a need to redefine it to allow small businesses to compete with their larger counterparts.
Manufacturers have already made it clear: the future of manufacturing will have more technology, greater automation and an increased use of collaborative robots.
Scientists, Humanities Scholar, tech writers, sex writers, robot enthusiasts and journalists gathered together at Goldsmiths, University of London for the Second International Congress on Love and Sex with Robots.
After battery fires sparked the recall of almost two million Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones, researchers from Stanford University have found a way to develop safer alternatives to flammable liquid electrolytes used in lithium-ion batteries. The volatile liquids utilized in most electronic devices could be replaced by solid electrolytes. The list of almost two dozen electrolytes was inspired by techniques adapted from artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning.
Researchers at Cornell University have created a robot that has the gentle touch of a human. Their paper which was recently published in the journal Science Robotics, the researchers outlined their invention known as the “Gentle Bot,” a soft robot hand that is capable of human touch.
A team of engineers from UC Berkeley has built a tiny robot with the highest recorded robotic vertical jumping agility. The new technology could aid in rescue and search operations during disasters in urban areas.
NASA is currently studying a new type of material ideal for space robotic systems called Bulk Metallic Glass (BMG).
A humanoid robot toddler called iCub has been giving psychologists vital clues as to how children acquire new words. This discovery indicates that early learning in children is not based on conscious thought. Instead, they have an automatic ability to associate objects that enables infants to quickly understand their environment.
Mankind is on the verge of another breakthrough in the realm of artificial intelligence. A new AI system can now "predict" how a scene "unfolds" and even create what it thinks is the next course of events of situations -- from an image at least.
