Sound of hacking
Scientists from MIT have developed a new AI model that can detect COVID-19 from a simple forced cough.
Coding introduced to kids badly
MIT's Mitchel Resnick and Natalie Rusk have warned that trying to teach kids programming using logic puzzles is like teaching people to write using crosswords.
It lowered the standards of the world
MIT has taken offline its highly cited dataset that trained AI systems to potentially describe people using racist, misogynistic, and other problematic terms.
Small enough for a mobile phone
MIT boffins have published a new paper that describes a new type of artificial brain synapse that offers performance improvements versus other existing versions, and which can be combined in volumes of tens of thousands on a chip that's smaller physically than a piece of confetti.
Hype machine works well though
AI developments might not be all they are cracked up to be and are just tweaks to existing technology, according to studies compiled by MIT boffins.
Uses machine learning tool
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) boffins have developed a new machine learning-based tool that will tell you how fast code can run on various chips.
Stands down as president from the Free Software Foundation and its board of directors
Free software messiah Richard Stallman has resigned from MIT, and as president and board member of the Free Software Foundation.
Not really what I said
Open saucy messiah Richard Stallman has found himself in a bit of a mess after he was quoted as defending Marvin Minsky's association with dead sex-pest Jeffrey Epstein.
Looking for micro-sized Sara Conners
