Rice’s AI Houston Institute, in collaboration with NASA, will host the two-day International Workshop on AI-Powered Space, covering the latest advances in artificial intelligence (AI) theory and practice in core space and extended space at the university’s tech hub, the Ion.
Kaiyu Hang, an assistant professor of computer science at Rice University, has won a National Science Foundation CAREER Award to develop robots that can manipulate unfamiliar objects in high-uncertainty situations.
Steps to regulate advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-enhanced social media are needed to protect people from AI “hacking” our interpersonal relationships and collective intelligence, says Harris Eyre, fellow in brain health at the Baker Institute.
The new open-source large language model, Llama 2, launched by Facebook parent company, Meta, last Tuesday allows users to adapt and develop artificial intelligence tools ⎯ including for use in commercial products ⎯ but the move raises urgent questions about the risks and potential benefits to how information is produced and disseminated.
Engineers from Rice and the University of Maryland have created technology that could allow cameras to "see" through fog, smoke, driving rain, murky water, skin, muscle and other light-scattering obstructions.
Rice computer scientist Anastasios Kyrillidis has won a Microsoft Research Award to find ways to overcome the problem of “catastrophic forgetting” during the training of artificial intelligence.
Rice researchers have discovered a natural cycle that repeats every 150 days in the north-south oscillation of the Southern Hemisphere’s prevailing westerly winds.
Alexandra Kieffer, an associate professor of musicology in Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, has been awarded a $40,000 fellowship by the George A. and Eliza Gardner Howard Foundation to support a semester of dedicated research and writing.
Business leaders, strategists and technologists from the energy industry attended the first International Workshop on AI-Powered Renewable Energy April 17-18 at the Ion innovation hub.
Rice engineers discovered a 200-year-old technique called Fourier analysis can reveal crucial information about how a form of artificial intelligence called a deep neural network learns to perform tasks involving complex physics.
Rice bioengineers teamed up with tropical medicine experts from Tulane to invent a high-tech way to study the feeding behavior of mosquitoes. To eliminate the need for live volunteers, the system uses patches of "synthetic skin" made with a 3D bioprinter.
Rice synthetic biologists have uncovered new capabilities of a genetically encoded sensor that allows salmonella, E. coli and other pathogens to sicken millions of people each year.
Life science innovators, academics and investors – including those specializing in health tech, medical devices and therapeutics – convened at Rice University this week to discuss Houston’s role in the future of health care and give awards to top early-stage life science companies.
A breakthrough by Rice computer scientists could allow more labs and companies to use artificial intelligence.
Rice's Ken Kennedy Institute is organizing and hosting the AI in Health Conference Nov. 7-9 at the BioScience Research Collaborative.
