Streamlining Mass Production of Printable Electronics


While memory devices are becoming progressively more flexible, their ease of fabrication and integration in low performance applications have been generally been treated as being of secondary importance. But now, thanks to the work of researchers at Munich University of Applied Sciences and INRS-EMT, this is about to change. In this week’s Applied Physics Letters, they presents a proof of concept, using resistive memory that now paves the way for mass-producing printable electronics.

Google's AI Tool for Video Searches Can Be Easily Deceived


University of Washington security researchers have shown that Google’s new tool that uses machine learning to automatically analyze and label video content can be deceived by inserting a photograph periodically into videos. After they inserted an image of a car into a video about animals, for instance, the system thought the video was about an Audi.
