Air Taxi Winners: Watch Orders Not Investment

Air Taxi Winners: Watch Orders Not Investment

Air taxi operators are unfazed by the 200 or so organizations designing vertical take-off electric aircraft. Follow the economics and the orders not the fluid investments from people seeking the next Tesla. Those getting the huge investments often lack significant orders.

Neural Model Seeks 'Inappropriateness" in Chatbots

Neural Model Seeks 'Inappropriateness" in Chatbots

Researchers have introduced the notion of inappropriate text messages and released a neural model capable of detecting them, along with a large collection of such messages for further research. Among the potential applications are preventing corporate chatbots from embarrassing the companies that run them, forum post moderation, and parental control.

Liquid Metal Sensors and AI Could Help Prosthetic Hands to Feel

Liquid Metal Sensors and AI Could Help Prosthetic Hands to Feel

Each fingertip has more than 3,000 touch receptors, which largely respond to pressure. Humans rely heavily on sensation in their fingertips when manipulating an object. The lack of this sensation presents a unique challenge for individuals with upper limb amputations.
