How DARPA Took On the Twitter Bot Menace with One Hand Behind Its Back

When DARPA ran a competition to find Twitter bots designed to influence online debates, it inspired a new generation of anti-bot strategies.One of the more disturbing phenomena on Twitter is the proliferation of bots that generate tweets automatically in an attempt to spread spam, to make money illicitly through click fraud, and, most worryingly, to...

First Laser Measurements of Magnetic Fields of Single Nerves

Physicists have worked out how to measure the magnetic fields generated by single nerves from outside the body and at room temperature.Biologists have known that nerves produce and respond to electrical signals since the 18th century, when Luigi Galvani discovered that the muscles in a frog’s leg twitch when stimulated by a spark.

How One Intelligent Machine Learned to Recognize Human Emotions

Nobody knew how to identify people’s emotional states by looking at their brain waves. Then a machine learning algorithm stepped in.When it comes to communication, humans are hugely sensitive to each other’s emotional states. Indeed, most people expect their emotional state to be taken into account by their correspondents. And when this happens, communication...

How an AI Algorithm Learned to Write Political Speeches

Political speeches are often written for politicians by trusted aides and confidantes. Could an AI algorithm do as well?“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”—John F. Kennedy, 1961

How Future Cars Will Predict Your Driving Maneuvers Before You Make Them

Prototype car safety systems are learning to watch the driver, as well as the road ahead, to predict future maneuvers more than three seconds before a driver makes them.Buy a new car these days and the chances are that it will be fitted with an array of driver-assistance technologies. These can match the speed of a car ahead, manage lane changing safely,...

Programmable Material Algorithm Solves Universal Coating Problem

If you want to measure the temperature at any point on an object’s surface, a thin coating of programmable material can do the job, say computer scientists.The world is full of complex structures such as bridges, roads, wind turbines, power stations, and so on, that have to be carefully monitored to ensure their integrity.
