Princeton’s REVISE uses statistics to inspect datasets for biases along three dimensions: object-based, gender-based and geography-based.
Toyota Research Institute demonstrated its research into machine learning, simulation, and manipulation in a virtual open house, which included a ceiling-mounted kitchen gantry robot.
Hailo said its new M.2 and Mini PCIe modules, which use the Hailo-8 AI processor, will make it easier for developers to build high performance into edge devices than other current systems.
Forests cover 30 percent of the Earth’s landmass, but that number is on the decline. Despite forests’ crucial role in conserving wildlife and processing carbon dioxide, many are threatened by deforestation and wildfires. Complicating these threats is the lack of quantitative information that foresters and environmental researchers need for making important decisions to preserve forests.…

StradVision’s SVNet software will be paired with ultrasonic sensors in Changan’s CS75 Plus advanced driver
Army researchers developed a reinforcement learning approach that allows swarms of unmanned aerial and ground vehicles to optimally accomplish various missions while minimizing performance uncertainty. Swarming is a method of operations where multiple autonomous systems act as a cohesive unit by actively coordinating their actions. Army researchers said future multi-domain battles will require swarms of…
How did farming affect your day today? If you live in a city, you might feel disconnected from the farms and fields that produce your food. Agriculture is a core piece of our lives, but we often take it for granted. Farmers today face a huge challenge — feeding a growing global population with less…
