Will China succeed in its artificial intelligence ambitions?

While it’s not safe to make predictions about whether China will successfully push the US to the second position in the AI industry, it's evident that China is putting its best chip forward when it comes to AI.

Robust AI: Protecting neural networks against adversarial attacks

Deep learning and neural networks are becoming increasingly accurate at performing complicated tasks. But are they robust as well. Researchers at MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab have developed methods to evaluate the robustness of neural networks against adversarial examples.

Inside DARPA’s effort to create explainable artificial intelligence

DARPA's XAI initiative aims to shed light inside the black box of artificial intelligence algorithms. Project Manager Dave Gunning explains how the agency is working to create explainable AI tools that will build trust and reliability into AI models.

Explainable AI: Interpreting the neuron soup of deep learning

Boston University's Kate Saenko discusses explainable AI and interpreting decisions made by deep learning algorithms and neural networks.

How AI can prevent money laundering

Money laundering is a global, longstanding issue that demands attention and evidence suggests that AI is useful in preventing money laundering.

Protecting AI models against audio adversarial attacks

AI makes life easier, it also introduces its own set of vulnerabilities and security threats. AI researchers at IBM have developed a technique that can detect adversarial examples and protect machine learning models against adversarial attacks.

Emerging technologies, industry 4.0 and the new age of manufacturing

The fourth industrial revolution is well underway — and it's thanks to a confluence of technologies we wrote off as science fiction just a few short years ago.

We’re still years away from driverless cars, but self-driving forklifts are...

As we continue to chase the dream of fully autonomous vehicles, the technology we develop can solve smaller yet no less important problems, such as automating the operation of forklifts in industrial settings.

Making STEM classes accessible to students in rural America

More than ever before, there is a high demand in the workforce for an increased emphasis on education in mathematics and sciences but students in rural areas often do not have the same opportunities as those who live in urban areas.

AI defeated human champions at Dota 2. Here’s what we learned.

Nine months after losing to humans at a Dota 2 e-sports event, OpenAI's team of neural networks came back and made history by defeating the world champions of the online strategy game.
