The Math Proves It—Network Congestion Is Inevitable
Just as highway networks may suffer from snarls of traffic, so too may computer networks face congestion. Now a new study finds that many key algorithms designed to control these delays on computer networks may prove deeply unfair, letting some users hog all the bandwidth while others get essentially nothing.
AI That Can Learn the Patterns of Human Language
On its own, a new machine-learning model discovers linguistic rules that often match up with those created by human experts.
Researchers Propose New and More Effective Model for Automatic Speech Recognition
Popular voice assistants like Siri and Amazon Alexa have introduced automatic speech recognition (ASR) to the wider public. Though decades in the making, ASR models struggle with consistency and reliability, especially in noisy environments. Chinese researchers developed a framework that effectively improves the performance of ASR for the chaos of everyday acoustic environments.
