Artificial Intelligence

Registration is open for the 2019 LIR seminar, which will be held on Friday 6 December in Cork City, Ireland. 
The call for submissions is now open for the DataTech20 conference in Glasgow on 16 March 2020. 
As part of the Sage Ocean Speaker Series Neil Maiden, Professor of Digital Creativity at the University London, will talk about “Digital support for more creative science journalism”on 16 July 2019 in London.  At this talk, Neil will present and explore the features of the AI-powered tool INJECT, as well as a new project, QUEST (Quality and effectiveness in science and technology communication).

There is a great deal of excitement surrounding the use of robots in a variety of industries, from security and care to logistics and manufacturing.

These are not the robots of the past, who were static automatons confined to cages and empty factory floors,…

Growth in smartphone technology has led to the traditional trawl for information to be devolved down to an individual level. This presents a challenge as traditional methods of making information available depend on when it is ready available, rather than when it is most convenient for a busy user.

Currently…

Computer simulators have transformed almost every aspect of science and technology. From Formula One cars to modern jet engine aircraft, from predicting the weather to the stock market, and to the inner workings of the brain itself, most research and development activities today depend heavily on numerical simulations.

Will the rise of machines threaten the human race? Are they truly capable of emotional intelligence? Will they put us all out of work? And more importantly, can they do the washing up?

Much of the public perception about robots is driven by Hollywood movies and alarmist or poorly informed media claims. People fear robots because they are portrayed with super-human capabilities, or because they worry about losing their jobs. Yet real robots are not like that. Robots are far less capable than humans or…

One of the goals of artificial intelligence research is to build an autonomous machine that can make its own decisions. This would be able to act without a human needing to operate it and under a wide range of conditions. It would, however, face a big problem. If the…
