ML Tools Automatically Classify 1,000 Supernovae
A machine learning algorithm autonomously classified 1,000 supernovae using data from the Zwicky Transient Facility sky survey instrument at Caltech's Palomar Observatory.
Hint: It's not all about scaling.
The Long Road to Driverless Trucks
Self-driving eighteen-wheelers are on U.S. highways, but there are still human "safety drivers" behind the wheel. What will it take to get them out?
Lawsuit Takes Aim at the Way A.I. Is Built
A programmer is suing Microsoft, GitHub, and OpenAI over artificial intelligence technology that generates its own computer code.

AI is Solving Classical Computing's Quantum Problem
Quantum computers, once thought to be "superior" to classical computers, increasingly are being seen as yet another accelerator for specialized problems, according to IBM.
AI Is Better at Answering Questions if You Get Another AI to Ask Them
An artificial intelligence (AI) model that makes suggestions to another AI generates results as good as if they were prompts from people.
Can You Tell Whether This Headline Was Written by a Robot?
Not this time, but artificial intelligence is churning out articles, illustrations, fake product reviews and even videos.

Synthetic data helps in projects that place heavy demand on data.
Italy Outlaws Facial Recognition Tech, Except to Fight Crime
Italy has banned the use of facial recognition technology and "smart glasses," except when used in judicial investigations or the fight against crime.
AI Uses Artificial Sleep to Learn New Task without Forgetting the Last
Scientists taught an artificial intelligence a second distinct task without overwriting connections learned from a first task, through the use of simulated sleep.
