Three Computer Games That Make Assembly Language Fun

Human Resource Machine, TIS-100, and Shenzhen I/O teach low-level coding Photo: Randi Klett Photo: Randi Klett Ah, assembly. Where all the pretense of high-level languages—the program structures, the data handling, the wealth of functions—gets stripped away. You get branches, bytes, and if you’re lucky, a subtraction command. True, directly manipulating the state of a computer can be(…)

AI Learns Gender and Racial Biases from Language

AI Learns Gender and Racial Biases from Language

Machine learning algorithms that readily pick up cultural biases may pose ethical problems Image: iStockphoto Artificial intelligence does not automatically rise above human biases regarding gender and race. On the contrary, machine learning algorithms that represent the cutting edge of AI in many online services and apps may readily mimic the biases encoded in their(…)

Leveraging Natural Language Processing in Requirements Analysis

This whitepaper explores emerging Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies that significantly reduce the cost and effort of fixing requirements errors. This whitepaper explores emerging Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies that significantly reduce the cost and effort of fixing requirements errors – freeing domain experts from tedious, time-consuming tasks.    Requirements documents are still written in(…)
