Researchers have developed a low-power chip that promises to significantly reduce speech recognition energy demands, paving the way for further miniaturization of artificial intelligence (AI). India’s Deccan Chronicle reports on a new chip developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that is specialized for AI speech recognition. The new microprocessor uses just 1% of the […]
Toyota has announced a new partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University, aimed at accelerating the development of artificial intelligence and robotics. The Japanese car maker will pump $50 million into newly formed research centers at MIT and Stanford. Any developments will be shared with Toyota, and could be adapted to […]
A recent trial for a mobility scooter that is self-driving completes a lengthy process of testing the software designed by researchers from the National University of Singapore, the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology and MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. The same sensor configuration and software has been used in trials of golf […]
An MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital group believes that machine learning can play a role in better understanding speech disorders and correcting vocal issues. The team recently described using a wearable gadget to gather accelerometer data to determine differences in people with Muscle Tension Dysphonia (MTD) compared to a control group. The individuals with MTD […]
In an effort to drive continued innovation in a handful of key areas of technology and science, President Obama hosted the White House Frontiers Conference, a one-day conference in Pittsburgh. This conference is a joint venture between the White House, the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. During the conference, President Obama announced a number […]
There are quite a few arguments for renewable energy investment, but one argument used against renewables was the cost factor. Five years ago, we started to see that cost gap close, leading countries like Germany, China, the United States to ramp up investment into solar farms. We may see a slow down on that investment, […]
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have unveiled a new sensor that could save lives by detecting a buildup of toxic gas in an area, and then send that data to a connected mobile or wearable. The sensor is incredibly sensitive to toxic gas, able to detect 10 parts per million of gas in the […]
Imagine having a personal monitoring system at work that makes sure the temperature is always perfect for you, and turns lights on or off whenever you enter or leave a room. This is what the employees at Carlo Ratti Associati , an international design and innovation firm, get to experience every day. See Also: HP Re-invents […]
Digital security solutions firm Tyfone is launching a new challenge at MIT focused on Internet of Things (IoT) security. Participants will be finding new ways to secure a Raspberry Pi-based IoT device or service by using the firm’s Connected Smart Card. This challenge is made in coordination with the MIT Sandbox Innovation Fund Program and is open […]
Researchers with MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have announced a breakthrough in cyber threat detection that promises to dramatically lower the amount of time human analysts spend sorting through information in search of evidence of cyber attacks. IT analysts spend countless hours scouring through mountains of data in order to find evidence […]
Driverless startup NuTonomy might be the first company with a fleet of self-driving taxis on the roads, if the city of Singapore approves of a pilot program to be launched later this year. NuTonomy started at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and has been working for three years to create a fully autonomous vehicle. The […]
