ICYMI: AI nanostructures and human-AI hybrid fashion designs

A week is a long time in artificial intelligence, so here’s a round-up of the AI Magazine articles that have been starting conversations around the world

AI algorithm discovers new self-assembling nanostructures

Scientists at the US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have demonstrated that artificial intelligence can be used to discover new materials. The AI-driven technique led to the discovery of three new nanostructures, including a first-of-its-kind nanoscale "ladder." The newly discovered structures were formed through a process known as self-assembly, where a material's molecules organise themselves into unique patterns. The scientists at Brookhaven's Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) are experts in directing the self-assembly process, creating templates for materials to form desirable arrangements for applications in microelectronics, catalysis, and more. Their discovery of the nanoscale ladder and other new structures further widens the scope of self-assembly applications. This research opens up new possibilities for advancing microelectronics and other fields.

Human-AI hybrid designers to produce fashions of the future

Human-AI collaborative networks could help amateur fashionistas compete with professional fashion designers, according to researchers in South Korea. The fashion industry has seen a significant increase in the use of artificial intelligence. From personalising customer fashion recommendations to optimising supply chain management and improving sustainability, AI plays a vital role in the fashion world. However, while many tasks are being automated, creative processes in fashion design remain mostly human-driven.

AI in everything, everywhere, all at once, say Davos experts

With half a trillion dollars worth of AI investments expected in 2023, the world needs to prepare for artificial intelligence to be integrated into all aspects of business and life, experts predicted at the World Economic Forum's Annual Meeting 2023 in Davos this week. Speakers emphasised that technology can bring about shared prosperity and innovative solutions to pressing global issues. However, they also acknowledged that the rapid pace of technological advancement poses a risk to current institutions, creating the potential for uncontrolled risks.
