Franz’s Allegro CL® Used for Scheduling the Hubble Space Telescope Discovery of Earendel

Franz Inc., an early innovator in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and leading supplier of Graph Database technology for Entity-Event Knowledge Graph Solutions, announced that its Allegro CL (Allegro Common Lisp) dynamic object-oriented development system used by the Space Telescope Science Institute to develop the SPIKE Hubble Space Telescope observation scheduler has aided in the discovery of “Earendel,” the farthest star ever seen in the universe.

University of Illinois Professor’s Expertise in Machine Learning for Audio Benefits Creation of New Beatles Documentary

From the first time he used a synthesizer, Illinois Computer Science professor Paris Smaragdis knew that he wanted to learn how technology could make or alter music. What’s followed is a career in academia that centered his Artificial Intelligence research on the question: What does it mean to take a stream of sound and then break it down into its individual components? Nothing he’s accomplished has been more “mind-bending” than the recent work he completed with a team of engineers to boost the audio quality of director Peter Jackson’s recent documentary titled “The Beatles: Get Back.”

Research Highlights: Using Theory of Mind to improve Human Trust in Artificial Intelligence

eXplainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) has become an active research area both for scientists and industry. XAI develops models using explanations that aim to shed light on the underlying mechanisms of AI systems, thus bringing transparency to the process. Results become more capable of being interpreted by both experts and non-expert end users alike. New research by a team of UCLA scientists is focused on boosting human trust in these increasingly common systems by greatly improving upon XAI. Their study was recently published in the journal iScience.

With More Data Comes Great Responsibility and a Need for Education

In this sponsored post, Dr Kendra Vant, Executive General Manager of data at global small business accounting platform Xero, discusses what responsible data use looks like in practice for tech companies and professionals. From strengthening insights into how a business operates and keeping businesses better equipped and informed, through to saving time with automation and even deepening a business’ understanding of its customers – the potential of data to make life easier for businesses and their customers is awe inspiring.
