The idea that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will learn unique human traits like adaptability, creativity and emotional intelligence is something that many in society consider to be an unlikely or distant possibility. But Toby Walsh, Scientia professor of AI at UNSW Sydney, has put a date on would could be reality. He considers 2062 the year … Continue reading AI will match human intelligence by 2062, UNSW professor says
UNSW scientists have developed a new carbon-based material that could revolutionise moisture control in applications as diverse as electronics, packaging and air conditioning – and which could even be used to keep footwear fresh. The new super dessicant, made from graphene oxide, significantly outperforms current drying agents, and is twice as absorbent as the industry … Continue reading Soaking up the water and the sweat – a new super desiccant
A $1 million joint fund established by UNSW and the NSW mining industry will take the form of a scholarship offering up to 25 students over $48,000 each over four years.
