Deep Science: Keeping AI honest in medicine, climate science and vision

This week, we'll explore a number of projects aimed at identifying or confirming bias or cheating behaviors in machine learning systems, or failures in the data that support them.

Deep Science: Robots, meet world

Research papers come out far too frequently for anyone to read them all. That’s especially true in the field of machine learning, which now affects (and produces papers in) practically every industr

Deep Science: Introspective, detail-oriented and disaster-chasing AIs

Research papers come out far too frequently for anyone to read them all. That's especially true in the field of machine learning, which now affects practically every industry and company.

Deep science: AI is in the air, water, soil and steel

This column aims to collect some of the most relevant recent discoveries and papers — particularly in but not limited to artificial intelligence — and explain why they matter.

Deep Science: AI adventures in arts and letters

There's more AI news out there than anyone can possibly keep up with, but you can stay tolerably up to date on the most interesting developments with this column.

Deep Science: AIs with high class and higher altitudes

Researchers are using AI to analyze MRI scans and even track elephants using satellite photography.

Deep Science: Using machine learning to study anatomy, weather and earthquakes

Research papers come out far too rapidly for anyone to read them all, especially in the field of machine learning, which now affects (and produces papers in) practically every industry and company. Th

Deep Science: Tech giants unveil breakthroughs at computer vision summit

Computer vision summit CVPR has just (virtually) taken place, and like other CV-focused conferences, there are quite a few interesting papers. More than I could possibly write up individually, in fact

Deep Science: Automated peach sniffers, orbital opportunity and AI accessibility

I see far more research articles than I could possibly write up. This column collects the most interesting of those papers and advances, along with notes on why they may prove important in the world o

Deep Science: ‘Twisted light’ lasers, prosthetic vision advances and robot-trained dogs

I see far more research articles than I could possibly write up. This column collects the most interesting of those papers and advances, along with notes on why they may prove important in the world o

Deep Science AI monitors security feeds for masks and guns to quicken response times

You're working late at the 7-Eleven when a guy comes through the door with a mask and a gun. You raise your hands, follow his instructions, empty the cash register and throw some burners in the bag. A
