Machine Learning may help capture fusion energy on Earth

Machine learning is an application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides systems the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly...
A team of scientists at MIT and elsewhere has developed a neural network, a form of artificial intelligence (AI), that can read scientific papers and render a plain-English summary in a sentence or two.

Can science writing be automated?

Science writers are sometimes known as scientific journalists. They report on scientific news for the media, sometimes taking on a more investigatory, critical role....
A new “particle simulator” developed by MIT researchers improves robots’ abilities to mold materials into simulated target shapes and interact with solid objects and liquids. This could give robots a refined touch for industrial applications or for personal robotics— such as shaping clay or rolling sticky sushi rice. Courtesy of the researchers

Giving robots a better feel for object manipulation

MIT scientists have developed a new learning system that can potentially improve robots’ abilities to mold materials into target shapes and make predictions about...

Computer model accurately identifies sources of foodborne illnesses than traditional

A new research led by Google and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health suggests that a new computation model can precisely identify potentially unsafe restaurants...
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer, or MODIS, on NASA’s Terra satellite acquired these natural-color images. The photo on the left shows the enormous amount of smoke produced during fires in Oregon last summer. The image on the right was taken on a clear day. A Goddard engineer has used MODIS data to train algorithms how to detect wildfires. Credits: Joshua Stevens, NASA Earth Observatory

NASA researchers teach machines to see

Thought about a subset of AI, machine learning and neural systems are quite the cutting edge. Rather than programming a computer to complete each...
MIT computer scientists have developed a system that learns to identify objects within an image, based on a spoken description of the image

Machine-learning system tackles speech and object recognition

MIT computer scientists have built up a system that figures out how to distinguish protests inside an image, in view of a spoken description...
Age, race or need for instant gratification: which best predicts how much you will earn?

Age, race or need for instant gratification: which best predicts how much you will...

Scientists for the first ever time have ranked the most important determinants of future affluence using machine learning. Their study suggests that a person's ability to...
Artificial intelligence model “learns” from patient data to make cancer treatment less toxic

Artificial intelligence model “learns” from patient data to make cancer treatment less toxic

Glioblastoma is a threatening tumor that develops in the brain or spinal cord, and anticipation for grown-ups is close to five years. Patients must...
