The scales of justice are not yet ready to be weighed and measured by robot lawyers powered by artificial intelligence. Or at least human lawyers are not ready to welcome AI into the fold. Under the threat of jail time, Joshua Browder, founder and CEO of DoNotPay, has decided not to let the "world's first robot... Read more...
The running joke whenever there's a story involving artificial intelligence is that Skynet is watching and, at times, is pleased. Or in this case, seriously displeased. The reason? United States congressman Ted W. Lieu wrote an op-ed calling for the creation of a dedicated federal agency staffed with experts to... Read more...
Everyone that does creative work, whether it's in visual art, writing, music, film, or even chemical engineering, should be concerned about AI overtaking their jobs at some point. It's not happening right now (unless you work at CNET), but it will happen eventually. "Eventually" may not mean "soon," though, and... Read more...
The same artificial intelligence (AI) tool that has been helping people cancel subscriptions, remove bogus charges, and lower their bills with little-to-no fuss is now turning its sights on fighting a speeding ticket. Pitched as the "world's first robot lawyer" by its developers, DoNotPay is headed to court, marking a... Read more...
As it was for many companies, last week was a busy one for NVIDIA, with the firm making a bunch of announcements at CES—the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti was finally made official, Ada Lovelace went mobile, and more. Now that CES week is in the rear view mirror, it's back to the usual deluge of leaks and rumors, one of which... Read more...
AMD's RDNA 3 GPU architecture found in the Radeon RX 7900 family of graphics cards was a tremendous leap in performance over the previous generation found in the Radeon RX 6000 series. Therefore, it only stands to reason that the next generation of AMD's high-performance and adaptive computing accelerators would... Read more...
IBM is showing off its first complete system-on-chip (SoC) designed to run and train deep learning models at a faster and more efficient clip than what general-purpose CPUs can achieve. Big Blue is calling it an Artificial Intelligence Unit (AIU) and one of the notable features is that clients can install it just as... 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...

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...
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...

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...
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...
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...
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...

SK Hynix announced it has developed its first PIM (processing in memory) solution, which it plans to show off at the upcoming International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), the same venue where Intel will talk about its Bonanza Mine crypto mining accelerator. These have nothing to do with one another, except... Read more...
NVIDIA has been making major inroads in the intelligent vehicle category with its DRIVE platform, and auto makers are taking notice. That includes Jaguar Land Rover, a Tata Motors subsidiary, which announced a multi-year strategic partnership with NVIDIA to build all future luxury Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles around...

Mark Zuckerberg and the gang over at Meta, the parent company to Facebook, have a new and powerful toy to play with courtesy of a collaboration with NVIDIA. Meta designed and NVIDIA built what is called the AI Research SuperCluster (RSC), a massive supercomputer that once fully deployed will rank as the largest... Read more...
How we both create and view art is being changed right before our very eyes. Along with artificial intelligence (AI), LG OLED displays are being used to change the very landscape of the art world. When one thinks about an art exhibit, the images of exquisite paintings hanging on walls come to mind. Artist Refix... 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...
NVIDIA is thumping its chest over a round of impressive benchmark runs that highlight the potency of mixing its A100 accelerators with either Arm or x86 hardware. Regardless of the CPU platform, NVIDIA contends that its accelerators enable the "best results in AI inference," and it has another batch of benchmarks to... Read more...
