NVIDIA is much more than a consumer graphics card and GPU company, it is heavily involved with artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicle technology as well. It's those latter markets that are the focus of its GTC 2021 conference, as it looks to advanced its technology portfolio in both categories. NVIDIA today... Read more...
Meta has not made it a secret it intends to expand its metaverse to include new projects and products. It seems Mark Zuckerberg wants one of those new ventures to include helping robots experience and understand the world as flesh and blood humans do, through touch interaction. Or maybe Zuck pines to be human. Either... Read more...
As artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities continue to play increasingly larger roles in everyday tasks, there is a need for ever-faster hardware and architectures. Arm is on the task. During its DevSummit conference this week, Arm's senior director of technology, Ian Bratt, talked a bit about what's... Read more...
In 2020 a study showed the IT industry spent an estimated $2 trillion in software development associated with debugging code. The study also showed that 50 percent of IT budgets were allocated to debugging code alone. Intel hopes to change those numbers by making its ControlFlag tool open-source. ControlFlag is an...

There's quite a bit of moving and shaking in the chip industry right now—Apple just unveiled its M1 Max and M1 Pro chips, Google provided more details on its upcoming Tensor SoC, and of course Intel's Alder Lake launch looms right around the corner. But as it applies to the mobile space, Qualcomm has a message for the... Read more...
Facebook's artificial intelligence division has announced a new long-term research project called Ego4D, which is an ambitious effort to expand the boundaries and capabilities of AI to understand and learn our habits from a first-person perspective, via AR glasses and headsets. The hardware aspect, while critical, is... Read more...
Back in May, Samsung unveiled a high-tech gadget for data centers called the CXL Memory Expander, essentially a memory expansion device that utilizes the newer Compute Express Link interconnect standard. As with most hardware, however, the clever device is only as good as the software. To address that fact, Samsung... Read more...
With the proliferation of artificial intelligence in recent years, the term "neuromorphic" is being used much more often in the tech sector. If you're a native English speaker, you can probably surmise that neuromorphic means something along the lines of "brain-like." Indeed, the buzzword of the day is "neuromorphic... Read more...
In 2014, it was established that the U.S. Copyright Office would "not register works produced by nature, animals, plants, or through divine or supernatural spirits." This declaration stemmed from a monkey who took a selfie and a photographer who thought they had the rights to the image. We are now facing a similar... Read more...
Drivers contracted to make delivers for Amazon claim that special cameras installed in their delivery vans are unfairly dinging them for road violations that did not occur, resulting in loss of extra income and other bonuses that they might otherwise be eligible to receive. Amazon, meanwhile, says the cameras have led... Read more...
It is well established that facial recognition based on machine learning is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination; therefore, using it for security purposes is likely a bad idea. This has now been proven through research from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, which showed that digital and real makeup could... Read more...
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang is adding another honor to his portfolio this week, as he was named one of the world's most influential people by TIME Magazine. Of course, we in the computing industry know all about Huang and his company's contributions to AI, PC gaming, and autonomous vehicles (among other sectors), and TIME... Read more...
Most people would be happy just to get their mitts on a single GPU, in the current landscape. The US Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory is much more fortunate, having procured a whopping 2,240 NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs (based on Ampere) for its Polaris supercomputer to "supercharge researcher and...

Do you think maybe the tech industry is hyper-focused on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies? It certainly is, and to some extent AI is practically everywhere these days, from servers and high-performance computing, to autonomous vehicles and everyday consumer devices, and everything in, around, and between. So... Read more...
“Following the publication of this article, HotHardware was provided with copies of court documents from this case that show ShotSpotter did not change the location of the gunfire, as had been previously reported, but had identified the same GPS coordinates for the gunfire in both its initial real-time alert and in its later detailed forensic Read more...
The human brain is enormously complex, and cracking the code of its intricacies in its entirety might never be accomplished. However, there have been loads of interesting research related to brain activity. Most recently, a team of researchers say they developed a deep learning framework that is able to decode sensory...

Following call center company Teleperformance allegedly forcing employees to undergo AI camera surveillance, Amazon wants to monitor its own customer service employees. Soon, Amazon could use a system that captures all workers' keystrokes to run behavioral analysis and prevent malicious hackers or imposters from... Read more...
If you thought Amazon wanting drivers to submit to biometric surveillance was bad, these recent revelations take the cake. Colombia-based call center workers, who perform outsourced customer services for some of the largest companies in the US, are now reportedly being pressured into signing a contract allowing their...

Though it has been more than a few weeks, and we have long since passed the end of 2020, the U.K’s most powerful supercomputer is now operational. Powered by NVIDIA hardware, the Cambridge-1 is a $100 million, 400 petaflop beast of a computer that ranks “among the world’s top 50 fastest computers and is powered by 100... Read more...
I have only dabbled in programming, and from my limited experience, I can appreciate that really good coding is an art form that not everyone possesses. Whether I have it or not, I can't say—I've never dived too deeply into programming to find out. If I ever do, Microsoft's new GitHub Copilot might prove to be a... Read more...
NVIDIA DLSS is an AI rendering technology used to increase performance while allowing players to still enjoy high-fidelity and quality in games. As of late, this technology has been added to a myriad of games, such as Rainbow Six: Siege earlier this year. Now, the tech is slated to come to five new game titles in the... Read more...
While there may be funny and impressive deepfakes out there, the technology poses a risk to trustworthy media and public figures. However, companies are working to prevent this sort of thing by developing robust deep fake detection tools. Facebook is the latest to join the group through reverse engineering generative...
