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...
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded Intel and its collaborators a contract to develop advanced simulation solutions for off-road autonomous ground vehicles. The hope is that these sims will reduce the significant gap that exists between on-road and off-road autonomous vehicle... Read more...
Artificial intelligence has been used to study climate change, improve healthcare, make more realistic and immersive gaming experiences, analyze daunting amounts of data from space exploration, and so much more. Oh, and apparently AI can also be useful in helping you figure out if you're the insensitive butthole in a... Read more...
Intel is testing new AI software that will detect the emotions of students while they are in an online classroom setting, and some are not happy about it. The software is designed to run on top of Zoom and is a collaboration with Classroom Technologies' virtual school software called Class, and is being backed by... Read more...
AMD's next big consumer products will be Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series desktop CPUs, as confirmed at CES. Those chips were claimed to arrive in late Q3 of this year, and it looks like they're well on track for that time frame. The latest scuttlebutt seems to indicate that the chips stand on the precipice of mass... Read more...
Have you ever searched for something on the internet and found something close to what you were looking for except for a few key elements? Like a garment in a style you adore, but that's the wrong color, for example. Google's latest search innovation is specifically designed to help with that kind of scenario. It's... Read more...
Let's talk about neuromorphic computing. Whereas traditional computers have processors and memory as discrete components, neuromorphic computing attempts to emulate the brain in that each functional element—each synapse—is both processor and memory. This radically-different approach to computing requires new hardware... Read more...
We all know Anker for its extensive product line of phone charges, cables, power banks, and other accessories, but its next offering is a delightful surprise. Anker is crowdfunding a 3D printer on Kickstarter, and it comes with some big promises. Chief among them is a five-fold increase in print speeds compared to... Read more...
Researchers at MIT are developing a new AI method that will allow robots to think more like a human as it makes pizza. The framework for the robotic system uses a two-stage learning process, which is aimed to enable a robot to perform complex dough-manipulation tasks over a long period of time. When someone thinks...

It takes a human being around 0.1 to 0.4 seconds to blink. In even less time, an AI-based inverse rendering process developed by NVIDIA can generate a realistic three-dimensional scene from a series of two-dimensional photographs taken from different angles. NVIDIA's approach is based on a new technology called... Read more...
At the heart of every autonomous machine, modern industrial robot, and automated manufacturing apparatus is some form artificial intelligence. These things are amazingly complex, too—not only are there models to train, but there are sensors to interpret and reactions to formulate. NVIDIA has been at the forefront of... Read more...
Anyone who has ever played an online video game has likely received a nasty message from another gamer. Most games incorporate a report button, but it can sometimes feel as if this feature does nothing. A pro esports player and others have recently created an artificial intelligence system that helps AAA studios... Read more...
There are a myriad of ways artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) can and do improve the quality of life. One of the most important areas is healthcare, where AI has been employed to help detect medical conditions and treat them, in part by developing life saving drugs. But while drug discovery is an...

When IBM's Watson defeated two of the greatest Jeopardy players of all time with a $1 million pot up for grabs, we applauded. And when AI started beating up flesh and blood players at games like Quake III Arena and Gran Turismo, we stood by and watched in amazement. But have we been witnessing marvels of technological...

Google says its DeepMind AI, Ithaca, can now decipher ancient Greek texts from damaged artifacts. Ithaca is said to be even better at Greek text restoration tasks than its predecessor, Pythia. Back in 2019, Google announced that its DeepMind lab had created an AI, Pythia, that could accurately guess sequences of... Read more...
Intel today has extended its vPro platform into its 12th Gen mobile and desktop CPU lineup based on Alder Lake, and with the expansion comes some new features and additional segmentation for different size businesses and enterprise clients. As it pertains to the latter, Intel added a couple of new tiers, including... Read more...
Qualcomm today is adding to its growing stack of 5G modem-RF systems with a new flagship model, the Snapdragon X70. This is actually its fifth generation 5G modem, preceded by the Snapdragon X65, Snapdragon X60, Snapdragon X55, and Snapdragon X50. It doesn't come with a raw speed upgrade, but it does introduce some... Read more...
In the past, the Battlefield series from EA and DICE has been incredibly well-received and well-played, but when Battlefield 2042 launched, things seemed to change. Between quality issues and bugs galore, players who picked up Battlefield just as soon put it back down again, and moved on to other games that have come... Read more...
Researchers are attempting to use quantum computing and machine learning in order to gain a better understanding of holographic duality. The study is the first systematic survey for quantum computing and deep-learning as it pertains to matrix quantum mechanics, and lays the groundwork for addressing more complicated... Read more...
