With the advent of photography, a tiny fraction of 19th-century scientists believed they could develop methods of accurately identifying criminals by their facial features. While their hypotheses were eventually discredited, new artificial intelligence technology suggests their claims might’ve been valid after all.

Xiaolin Wu and Xi Zhang from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China have resurrected this facial recognition tradition and built a neural network that can supposedly pick out criminals by simply looking at their faces.

As one of the first 100 employees at Google, Ron Dolin worked directly on the indexing and retrieval of information on a massive scale. Before that, he was a physicist working on data acquisition and computer controls at European particle accelerator CERN, where scientists explore the fundamental laws of nature that create and destroy universes. Now the physics and computer science have come together for Dolin in a surprising place: the legal profession. Dolin doesn’t think the traditional structure of the legal universe can survive what’s coming from the world of artificial intelligence.

British military drones bringing death from above could be capable of firing on targets without the need for a human operator.

A new drone being developed by French and British military contractors for use by the RAF, is being built with capabilities of selecting and engaging targets using artificial intelligence.

While human intervention is required under international law, the Taranis drone could potentially become fully autonomous if the laws change, taking humans out of the loop and leaving the decision-making to the machines.

A free online chatbot laywer has managed to overturn a staggering 160,000 parking tickets in London and New York City, saving users an estimated £2.9 million.

The artificial intelligence bot was launched just 21 months ago and is touted as the “world’s first robot lawyer”.
