"This research introduces and demonstrates an artificial intelligent material that can learn to exhibit desired behaviors and properties when exposed to increased environmental conditions," said Jonathan Hopkins, the study's lead researcher and professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering.
Meta said Wednesday that it has built an artificial intelligence system that translates Hokkien into English, though the Taiwanese language lacks a standardized written form.
Today at Adobe Max 2022, Adobe will showcase a prototype AI project that can convert a still image of a person into an animated dancer.
