Artificial intelligence can improve sales by four times compared to some human employees

2019-09-23 95 ArtificialIntelligence MachineLearning

Chatbots, which use artificial intelligence to simulate human conversation through voice commands or text chats, incur almost zero marginal costs and can outsell some human employees by four times, so why aren't they used ...
Artificial intelligence designs metamaterials used in the invisibility cloak

2019-07-16 91 artificialintelligence

Metamaterials are artificial materials engineered to have properties not found in naturally occurring materials, and they are best known as materials for invisibility cloaks often featured in sci-fi novels or games. By precisely ...
Building trust in artificial intelligence

2019-07-02 88 AI artificialintelligence

From telecommunications to road traffic, from healthcare to the workplace—digital technology is now an intrinsic part of almost every area of life. Yet how can we ensure that developments in this field, especially those ...
Researchers design new material using artificial intelligence

2019-10-14 85 artificialintelligence MachineLearning

Researchers at TU Delft have developed a new supercompressible but strong material without conducting any experimental tests at all, using only artificial intelligence (AI). "AI gives you a treasure map, and the scientist ...
Using artificial intelligence to detect discrimination

2019-07-10 75 artificialintelligence MachineLearning

A new artificial intelligence (AI) tool for detecting unfair discrimination—such as on the basis of race or gender—has been created by researchers at Penn State and Columbia University.
Artificial intelligence and supercomputers to help alleviate urban traffic problems

2017-12-11 53 artificialintelligence

Look above the traffic light at a busy intersection in your city and you will probably see a camera. These devices may have been installed to monitor traffic conditions and provide visuals in the case of a collision. But ...
Machine learning reveals earth tremor and slip occur continuously, not intermittently

2020-02-27 50 Artificialintelligence

Applying deep learning to seismic data has revealed tremor and slip occur at all times—before and after known large-scale slow-slip earthquakes—rather than intermittently in discrete bursts, as previously believed. Even ...
Artificial intelligence bot trained to recognize galaxies

2018-10-31 50 AI artificialIntelligence

Researchers have taught an artificial intelligence program used to recognise faces on Facebook to identify galaxies in deep space.
Artificial intelligence helps experts forecast icebergs
