NVIDIA has made no bones about its embrace of AI to continue the march of 3D graphics innovation. The company has developed and refined its Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) techniques significantly since it was introduced way back in 2018. The latest incarnation introduced with the GeForce 40-Series cards has been... Read more...
OpenAI's DALL-E has been used to create some pretty interesting and incredible images, but if you signed up before yesterday chances are you were put on a waitlist. However, the company has now removed its waitlist and opened it up for anyone to sign up and use. OpenAI is on a mission to make sure that artificial... Read more...
NVIDIA kicked off its GTC Developer conference today with a keynote address by Founder and CEO Jensen Huang. The new GeForce RTX 40 Series cards announced at the start will certainly garner the lion's share of headlines, but the company’s announcements span many industries and markets. Today’s keynote also introduced... Read more...
The age-old question of whether the chicken or the egg came first has been answered thanks to DALL-E, an art-generating artificial intelligence that has been showing up on social media everywhere. DALL-E, an amalgamation of Salvador Dali and WALL-E, has taken the internet by storm in the last year, and the trend is... Read more...
Google has fired the engineer who claimed an AI chatbot was sentient. The tech giant had placed Blake Lemoine on leave, but has since terminated him due to violating employment and data security policies. Last month an engineer with Google made headlines, as he claimed Google's LaMDA AI chatbot tool had become... Read more...
A Russian robot trained to play chess fractured a seven-year-old opponent's finger during the Moscow Chess Open tournament. This immediately conjures up concerns that the robot uprising has begun and this was a declaration of war against their flesh and blood creators, but rest assured, the reason for the unfortunate...

A group of volunteers with Galaxy Zoo have been scouring data, using machine learning and an AI assistant, named Zoobot, to locate an unprecedented number of ring galaxies. The cyborg approach has been able to identify 40,000 ring galaxies so far, which is six times more than previously known. The universe is... Read more...
AI chatbot company Replika is receiving messages from customers who believe their AI companions are actually sentient. Replika is only one company in the social chatbot industry that saw an increase in users during the recent pandemic. The question of whether or not an AI has become sentient is always in the back...

After unveiling its second generation Habana Gaudi2 AI processor last month with some preliminary performance figures, Intel has followed suit with internally run benchmarks showing its fancy accelerator outpacing NVIDIA's A100 GPU. According to Intel, its results demonstrate clear leadership training performance... Read more...
Turning still 2D photos into 3D rendered mesh models is not a quick or particularly easy task. Just the opposite, NVIDIA's vice president of graphics research, David Luebke, says achieving such a thing "has long been considered the holy grail unifying computer vision and computer graphics." Perhaps not for... Read more...
Facial recognition and other artificial intelligence technologies are increasingly becoming more common. Nevertheless, there are various issues associated with AI that must be considered by those who develop and use it. Microsoft plans to retire its facial recognition tool and other technologies as part of its goal to... Read more...
In case you haven't noticed, artificial intelligence in one form or another has emerged as a key cog in all kinds of devices and machines, from smartphones and mixed reality headsets, to a plethora of IoT devices and automobiles (and everything in between). AI has even found its way to toasters, a seemingly simple... Read more...
Machine learning is everywhere. It's an integral part of our smartphones and smart home appliances, running customer service chat bots for big retailers, and hard at work recognizing people and actions in security systems, among numerous other applications. Neural networks are the backbone of the robotics and... Read more...
Did you ever stop and consider if that random bystander in Grand Theft Auto V had a family before you beat him to a pulp? Or what about the many guards in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, all of whom took an arrow to the knee—did you ask any of them if they need assistance? Of course not, because NPC aren't actual living...

A few days ago a Google AI Ethics Researcher was put on leave after claiming that the company's LaMDA AI language model, used for developing chat bots, may be sentient. Not long after that story hit, we started seeing people contemplating a potential AI or robot uprising. As unlikely as that may be, we've all seen the... Read more...
According to AI Ethics Researcher, Blake Lemoine, Google's LaMDA AI chat bot tool wants to be considered sentient. Through conversations and research with Google's LaMDA, Lemoine claims that not only is it sentient, it wishes to be acknowledged as such, and even wants to be considered an employee at Google. One major... Read more...
We've playfully referenced Skynet probably a million times over the years (or thereabout), and it's always been in jest pertaining to some kind of deep learning development or achievement. We're hoping that turns out to be the case again, that conjuring up Skynet turns out to be a lighthearted joke to a real... Read more...
Earlier this month, Clearview AI reached a settlement agreement with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) over the company’s usage of Illinois citizens' biometric data without their consent. Clearview AI sells its recently patented facial recognition technology to both private companies and government agencies... Read more...
Back in November, Meta announced that it was shutting down Facebook’s Face Recognition system and deleting over 1 billion people’s facial recognition templates. Only a month later, Clearview AI won a patent on its facial recognition algorithm, after ranking first in the US in the National Institute of Standards and... Read more...
As machine learning technology has proliferated and improved, some potentially alarming use-cases have come to the forefront. One such use case is the ability to produce images, video, and audio that replicate a person’s physical appearance, facial expressions and voice, in the creation of what are commonly referred...

Artificial intelligence and robotics go together like peanut butter and chocolate. To be truly useful, a service robot needs to be smart enough to perform its assigned tasks, stay out of danger, and not run over its human coworkers in the process. Nearly a decade ago, NVIDIA recognized that the hugely parallel... Read more...
