What is machine learning? - In this fascinating animation from Oxford Sparks, we take a look at how statistics and computer science can be used to make machines that learn for themselves, without being explicitly programmed. Machine learning is a burgeoning breed of artificial intelligence (AI), and it’s all around us already; on our phones, powering social networks, helping the police and doctors, scientists and mayors. But how does it work? Enjoy the video below, and visit Oxford Sparks t...

No, a Tesla didn’t predict an accident and brake for it - You may have seen a lot of press around a dashcam video of a car accident in the Netherlands.

Robot Life Survey - Image: Eunike Nugroho What might the first western explorer have thought upon encountering whales, flamingos and iguanas? What would have they thought of these strange near-fantastical creatures? What is it like for 21st-century people to encounter robots for the first time? Are they friend or foe? Where do they come from and what controls them? If we saw one for the first time tomorrow, what would we tell our friends? This is the thinking behind Robot Life Survey – an a...
