Professor Shlomo Dubmov is working on a project with researchers in Europe to enhance the creative relationship between humans and computers — by teaching computers to play improv jazz.

Computers in a Jazz Ensemble? Inventing Improvisational AI

January 13, 2022

Project REACH: Raising Co-creativity in Cyber-Human Musicianship is teaching computers how to improvise, musically.

Engineers Develop Techniques to Improve Efficiency of Cloud Computing Infrastructure

March 6, 2013

Computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, and Google have developed a novel approach that allows the massive infrastructure powering cloud computing to run more efficiently. The new approach can make these warehouse-scale computers run as much as 15 to 20 percent more efficiently. This novel model has…

Fur Real - Scientists Improve Computer Rendering of Animal Fur

February 20, 2018

The next computer-generated animals in King Kong or The Lion King could look a lot more realistic thanks to a breakthrough by computer scientists at the University of California. The researchers from UC San Diego and UC Berkeley developed a method that dramatically improves the way computers simulate fur, and…

Data Structures Influence Speed of Quantum Search in Unexpected Ways

March 17, 2015

Using the quantum property of superposition, quantum computers will be able to find target items within large piles of data far faster than conventional computers ever could. But the speed of the search will likely depend on the structure of the data.

Using Stolen Computer Processing Cycles to Mine Bitcoin: Who Does It and How Much Do They Make?

February 26, 2014

A team of computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, has taken an unprecedented, in-depth look at how malware operators use the computers they infect to mine Bitcoin, a virtual currency whose value is highly volatile.

Hipster, Surfer or Biker? Computers May Soon Be Able to Tell the Difference

December 10, 2013

…your urban tribe? Your computer may soon be able to tell. Computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, are developing an algorithm that uses group pictures to determine to which of these groups, or urban tribes, you belong. So far, the algorithm is 48 percent accurate on average.…

Researchers Find Computer Code that Volkswagen Used to Cheat Emissions Tests

May 22, 2017

…investigation, researchers found code that allowed a car’s onboard computer to determine that the vehicle was undergoing an emissions test. The computer then activated the car’s emission-curbing systems, reducing the amount of pollutants emitted. Once the computer determined that the test was over, these systems were deactivated.
