Artificial Intelligence could help to foil online dating scams
Dating apps and websites could soon use computing algorithms that 'think' like humans to pinpoint fake profiles designed to con victims out of thousands of pounds. Researchers from across the UK, including experts from the University of Bristol Cyber Security Group , have developed new algorithms that can understand what fake dating profiles look like and then apply this knowledge when they scan profiles submitted to online dating services.

Machine learning reveals hidden turtle pattern in quantum fireworks
Two years ago, physicists at the University of Chicago were greeted with fireworks -atoms shooting out in jets-when they discovered a new form of quantum behavior. But the patterns underlying the bright jets were difficult to pick out from the noise. Instead, the scientists took an approach new to the field: machine learning.

Faster than allowed by quantum computing?
Faster than allowed by quantum computing?
Researchers determine the performance of multi-dimensional bits Quantum computers are more powerful than classical computers since they work with coherent "quantum bits" instead of ordinary zeroes and ones. But what if the laws of nature were different from what we think today - could there be even more efficient "science fiction computers"- Researchers from the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna have now shown that this is not possible - as long as those machines satisfy the same construction principles as ordinary circuits and their quantum counterparts.

Putting neural networks under the microscope
Putting neural networks under the microscope
Researchers pinpoint the "neurons" in machine-learning systems that capture specific linguistic features during translation tasks. Researchers from MIT and the Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) are putting the machine-learning systems known as neural networks under the microscope. In a study that sheds light on how these systems manage to translate text from one language to another, the researchers developed a method that pinpoints individual nodes, or "neurons," in the networks that capture specific linguistic features.

MIT robot combines vision and touch to learn the game of Jenga
MIT robot combines vision and touch to learn the game of Jenga
Machine-learning approach could help robots assemble cellphones and other small parts in a manufacturing line. It gently pokes at a tower of blocks, looking for the best block to extract without toppling the tower, in a solitary, slow-moving, yet surprisingly agile game of Jenga. The robot, developed by MIT engineers, is equipped with a soft-pronged gripper, a force-sensing wrist cuff, and an external camera, all of which it uses to see and feel the tower and its individual blocks.

Engineers program marine robots to take calculated risks
Algorithm could help autonomous underwater vehicles explore risky but scientifically-rewarding environments. We know far less about the Earth's oceans than we do about the surface of the moon or Mars. The sea floor is carved with expansive canyons, towering seamounts, deep trenches, and sheer cliffs, most of which are considered too dangerous or inaccessible for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) to navigate.

Tackling the fake news problem
Tackling the fake news problem
Meet the researchers who are trying to understand and solve fake news problems in the digital age. Fake news is a human activity, so humans should be involved Dr Julio Amador The term ‘fake news' regularly hits the headlines these days. Whether it is to do with political events or information on the various social platforms, it seems like it is getting harder and harder to know who to trust to be a reliable source of information.

Filling the gaps in a patient’s medical data
Neural network assimilates multiple types of health data to help doctors make decisions with incomplete information. MIT researchers have developed a model that can assimilate multiple types of a patient's health data to help doctors make decisions with incomplete information. The field of "predictive analytics" holds promise for many health care applications.
