Fakhri Karray, a Waterloo electrical and computer engineering professor, has been honoured as a 2020 fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in recognition of his "contributions to intelligent systems."
Researchers at Waterloo Engineering have developed a new screening tool that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help fact-checkers identify false information online.
The system sets a new benchmark for accuracy in stance detection, a key area in efforts by scientists and engineers around the world to create fully automatic technology capable of detecting fake news.
Engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo have unearthed inherent gender and age biases buried in a popular image dataset used to train artificial intelligence (AI) systems around the world.
The discovery will help researchers find ways to rebalance the data so it better reflects demographic diversity, ultimately paving the way for more accurate AI models.
