When a Story is Breaking, AI Can Help Consumers Identify Fake News

When a Story is Breaking, AI Can Help Consumers Identify Fake News

Warnings about misinformation are now regularly posted on Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms, but not all of these cautions are created equal. New research shows that artificial intelligence can help form accurate news assessments — but only when a news story is first emerging.

Intelligent Robot Helps to Maintain Orchards

Intelligent Robot Helps to Maintain Orchards

Orchards are among the most species-rich biotopes in Central Europe. But many stands are acutely threatened: Since their management is hardly worthwhile from an economic point of view, the vast majority of orchards are not or only poorly maintained. Researchers are working on the development of an autonomous robot that will largely take over tree pruning independently in the future.

Kuala Lumpar International Facial Recognition to Replace Boarding Pass

Kuala Lumpar International Facial Recognition to Replace Boarding Pass

Physical travel documents such as airline tickets and boarding passes may soon be a thing of the past for passengers at KL International Airport with the first phase roll-out of the Single Token Journey initiative. The initiative utilises facial recognition technology to provide passengers with one single-token biometric identification authentication that will take them through the entire airport journey.

Hybrid Chips can run AI on Battery Powered Devices

Smartwatches and other battery-powered electronics would be even smarter if they could run AI algorithms. But efforts to build AI-capable chips for mobile devices have so far hit a wall - the so-called "memory wall" that separates data processing and memory chips that must work together to meet the massive and continually growing computational demands imposed by AI.

Neural Network Connects Text and Images

Although deep learning has revolutionized computer vision, current approaches have several major problems: typical vision datasets are labor intensive and costly to create while teaching only a narrow set of visual concepts; standard vision models are good at one task and one task only, and require significant effort to adapt to a new task; and models that perform well on benchmarks have disappointingly poor performance on stress tests, casting doubt on the entire deep learning approach to computer vision.
