MIT researchers develop AI to calculate material stress using images

Researchers from MIT have developed an AI tool for determining the stress a material is under through analysing images.

The pesky laws of physics have been used by engineers for centuries to work out – using complex equations – the stresses the materials they’re working with are being put under. It’s a time-consuming but vital task to prevent structural failures which could be costly at best or cause loss of life at worst.

“Many generations of mathematicians...

Researchers find systems to counter deepfakes can be deceived

Researchers have found that systems designed to counter the increasing prevalence of deepfakes can be deceived.

The researchers, from the University of California - San Diego, first presented their findings at the WACV 2021 conference.

Shehzeen Hussain, a UC San Diego computer engineering PhD student and co-author on the paper, said:

"Our work shows that attacks on deepfake detectors could be a real-world threat.

More alarmingly, we demonstrate that it's...

NVIDIA breakthrough emulates images from small datasets for groundbreaking AI training

NVIDIA’s latest breakthrough emulates new images from existing small datasets with truly groundbreaking potential for AI training.

The company demonstrated its latest AI model using a small dataset – just a fraction of the size typically used for a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) – of artwork from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

From the dataset, NVIDIA’s AI was able to create new images which replicate the style of the original artist’s work. These images...
