The goal of the project is to set up a new frontier in automate sign language interpreting with novel technologies and AI algorithm.
Blockchain – Everyone has probably heard about blockchain, but do we really understand how this technology works and what application it has found in modern life? In this article, we will look at the basic concepts of blockchain and explain everything you need to know in simple terms.
This article reflects on the growing awareness and adoption of AI in media organisations. But how best to use AI tools and what is the impact?
Computer science gives us stunning possibilities these days, but I wish we would all take time to remind ourselves of some simple facts about algorithms.
This special issue collects articles that present some projects on media accessibility and contextualise them within the broader context of the social changes we are facing.
– the digital terrestrial broadcasting. As opposed to the linear transmission of sound in analog, digital radio uses compressed digital signals for radio terrestrial broadcasts. As analog signals suffer from quality loss due to signal interference and obstructions, the digital radio, on the other hand, offers an excellent audio quality.
Right now, the market for those knowledgeable in data is growing quickly. It’s estimated that US data professional job openings grew by 364,000 openings by 2020 alone. However, when you see terms like machine learning, data science and data analytics Read more […]
A robot that behaves or thinks like a human is called a humanoid. A robot can either be controlled directly using a controlled device or can be programmed to do specific tasks autonomously. Robots are widely used in manufacturing, assembly and packing, transport, earth and space exploration, surgery, weaponry, laboratory research, and mass production of consumer and industrial goods. The world’s first digital robot called the Unimate was invented by George Devol in 1954. It was sold to General Motors to help with the manufacturing process like lifting hot pieces of metal from a die casting machine and stacking them. But a humanoid robot was still a fiction until 1972, when the first humanoid robot called WABOT-1 was developed by Waseda University (Japan).WABOT-1 was able to walk, communicate (in japanese), grip objects, etc.
Across the UK, more people than usual were dying from non-Covid causes last year—and no one knows why. A wave of unexplained extra deaths from causes other than Covid-19 hit the UK, the first nation to start mass vaccination with novel vaccines. Since Read more […]
Europe’s history is stored in billions of archival pages across the continent. While many archives try to make their documents public, finding information in them remains a low-tech affair. Simple page scans do not offer the metadata such as dates, names, locations that often interest researchers. Copying this information for later use is also time-consuming.
The COVID19 has accelerated digitalization and the adoption of new technologies that are having effects on the way we work.
LOFAR (Low Frequency Array) is the world’s largest and most sensitive low frequency radio telescope. It was designed, built, and is now operated by ASTRON, the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy. LOFAR’s reach now spans Europe – from Ireland to Poland, with the newest LOFAR antenna station being delivered to Ventspils University of Applied Sciences in Latvia. Here we propose that LOFAR is a prime example of how state-of-the-art facilities leads to the sharing and building of competencies and innovation: it is one of today’s major success stories of research infrastructures on a European scale.
