Training the artificial intelligence models that underpin web search engines, power smart assistants and enable driverless cars, consumes megawatts of energy and generates worrying carbon dioxide emissions. But new ways of training these models are proven to be greener.
A research team at Carnegie Mellon University recently completed the first in-depth study of browser tabs in more than a decade. They found that many people struggle with tab overload, an underlying reason being that while tabs serve a variety of functions, they often do so poorly.
The world's first-ever 'academic paper which is not a paper' is due to be presented by a Lancaster University research team at the premier international conference on human-computer interaction.
A KAIST research team has developed a new technology that enables to process a large-scale graph algorithm without storing the graph in the main memory or on disks. Named as T-GPS (Trillion-scale Graph Processing Simulation) by the developer Professor Min-Soo Kim from the School of Computing at KAIST, it can process a graph with one trillion edges using a single computer.
Researchers have discovered the most precise way to control individual ions using holographic optical engineering technology.
Consumers are less forgiving of brand failures when algorithms are anthropomorphized, use machine learning, or are used for subjective or interactive tasks.
ChromoUpdate is an MIT-developed "programmable matter" technique to quickly change objects' color. The method uses light to alter the saturation of photochromatic ink on an item's surface and could give product designers a boost in churning out prototypes.
Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) scientists in Korea have developed algorithms that more efficiently measure how difficult it would be for an attacker to guess secret keys for cryptographic systems. The approach they used was described in the journal IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security and could reduce the computational complexity needed to validate encryption security.
University of New Mexico Researchers Create Open Source Computational Tool to Rapidly Screen Molecules For COVID-Fighting Properties.
In a recent article published in the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, researchers discuss how bad user design is especially detrimental to the underprivileged and how a wider usability movement can help 'everyone, everywhere.'
