MIT system predicts the best way to deflect an Earth-bound asteroid

We’re not in immediate danger of any asteroids colliding with Earth – at least not as far as anyone’s aware. But it’s not like it hasn’t happened before, and there is an expected near-miss coming up

MIT’s Ground-Penetrating Radar Looks Down for Perfect Self-Driving

A digital map of rocks, cavities, and utility pipes underground creates a unique signature. Cars can follow it, at speed, in snow, and be within 2 inches of the road center, says WaveSense. The post

Elon Musk says all advanced AI development should be regulated, including at Tesla

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is once again sounding a warning note regarding the development of artificial intelligence. The executive and founder tweeted on Monday evening that “all org[anizations]

MIT CSAIL’s AI corrects outdated Wikipedia articles

MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory taps AI and machine learning to correct and update outdated Wikipedia articles.

AI can automatically rewrite outdated text in Wikipedia articles

It's good to be skeptical of Wikipedia articles for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the possibility of outdated info -- human editors can only do so much. And while there are bots that

Fiddler Labs, SRI and Berkeley experts open up the black box of machine learning at TC Sessions: Robotics+AI

As AI permeates the home, work and public life, it’s increasingly important to be able to understand why and how it makes its decisions. Explainable AI isn’t just a matter of hitting a switch, though;

MIT’s RFocus technology could turn your walls into antennas

RFocus asks a simple question: What if instead of just antennas and transmitters on access points and mobile devices, we put the things just about everywhere? You know, just totally slather the walls

MIT Develops ‘Spider’ Tech to Enable More Efficient Off-Chain Crypto Transactions

The researchers say their new routing scheme can help avoid congestion on off-chain cryptocurrency networks.

MIT's 'smart surface' could improve your WiFi signal tenfold

There's a problem with stuffing wireless connections into ever-smaller devices: they can struggle to maintain a good signal when there's so little space for antennas. MIT CSAIL researchers might have
