How the surprising water footprint of semiconductor manufacturing, datacenters, and AI solutions is sparking sustainable development.

Building Computing Systems for Embodied Artificial Intelligence

Embodied AI involves embedding artificial intelligence into tangible entities, such as robots, equipping them with the capacity to perceive, learn from, and engage dynamically with their surroundings [1]. This approach facilitates robots in evolving and adapting to environmental changes. A notable instance of this is the Figure AI humanoid, which leverages OpenAI’s cutting-edge technologies. It […]

On Specifying for Trustworthiness

As autonomous systems increasingly become part of our lives, it is crucial to foster trust between humans and these systems, to ensure positive outcomes and mitigate harmful ones.

Shape the Future of Computing

ACM encourages its members to take a direct hand in shaping the future of the association. There are more ways than ever to get involved.

Get Involved

Communications of the ACM (CACM) is now a fully Open Access publication.

By opening CACM to the world, we hope to increase engagement among the broader computer science community and encourage non-members to discover the rich resources ACM has to offer.
