‘Off label’ use of imaging databases could lead to bias in AI algorithms, study finds

Man looking at brain images

By Marni Ellerry. Significant advances in artificial intelligence (AI) over the past decade have relied upon extensive training of algorithms using massive, open-source databases. But when such datasets are used “off label” and applied in unintended ways, the results are…

Computers in a Jazz Ensemble? Inventing Improvisational AI

UC San Diego Professor Shlomo Dubnov is among the researchers who will benefit from a European Research Council Advanced Grant to teach computers how to improvise, musically.

By Josh Baxt. Go to any jazz club and watch the musicians. Their performances are dynamic and improvisational; they’re inventing as they go along, having entire conversations through their instruments. Can we give computers the same capabilities? To answer that…

Paging Doctor Robot?

A robotic hand holding a stethoscope

By Shelley Leachman. Much like a family physician who has treated you for years, computer systems could — hypothetically — know a patient’s complete medical history. A more common experience, of course, is seeing a new doctor or a specialist…

New AI Strategy Enables Robots to Rapidly Adapt to Real-world Environments

An AI Robot navigates tough terrain

By Sarah Yang. Delivery services may be able to overcome snow, rain, heat and the gloom of night, but a new class of legged robots is not far behind. Artificial intelligence algorithms developed by a team of researchers from UC…

AI for More Efficient Flying Qubits

In order to use existing optical network fibers such as these, qubits (quantum bits) need to be efficiently converted to "flying qubits." (Credit: Berkeley Lab)

By Jon Bashor. As quantum computers evolve from theory to functioning machines and begin solving problems beyond the capabilities of even the fastest supercomputers, finding a way to link these powerful new systems to communicate with other quantum machines becomes…

Artificial Intelligence: Can We Trust Machines to Make Fair Decisions?

woman with computerized background

By Catherine Kenny. Artificial Intelligence touches almost every aspect of our lives, from mobile banking and online shopping to social media and real-time traffic maps. But what happens when artificial intelligence is biased? What if it makes mistakes on important…
