The computer vision scientist Greg Johnson is building systems that can recognize organelles on sight and show the dynamics of living cells more clearly than microscopy can.
Consciousness is a famously hard problem, so Hod Lipson is starting from the basics: with self-aware robots that can help us understand how we think.
To make headway on the mystery of consciousness, some researchers are trying a rigorous new way to test competing theories.
Neural networks can be as unpredictable as they are powerful. Now mathematicians are beginning to reveal how a neural network’s form will influence its function.
Neural networks are famously incomprehensible, so Been Kim is developing a “translator for humans.”
A visual prank exposes an Achilles’ heel of computer vision systems: Unlike humans, they can’t do a double take.
