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...

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...
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...
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...

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...
Scientists and researchers are forever on the pursuit of increasingly sophisticated artificial intelligence technologies, especially today, with AI playing such a big role in so many different products and services. One of the more interesting developments in AI has to do with nanowire networks being trained to solve... Read more...
During its GTC 2021 keynote today, NVIDIA unveiled a new product for high performance computing (HPC) clients, its first-ever data center CPU called Grace. Based on Arm's architecture, NVIDIA claims Grace serves up 10x better performance than the fastest servers on the market currently, for complex artificial... Read more...
How do you make high bandwidth memory (HBM) even better? Lower for the price, for one. But aside from that, infusing it with artificial intelligence (AI) processing power is a surefire way to make HBM even more attractive for certain market segments, and that is precisely what Samsung has done—it has developed the...

Today we have an assortment of digital assistants to help us look up the weather, control the lighting, and all sorts of other tasks. Whether it's enlisting the aid of Siri or tapping into Alexa's growing set of skills, there is a new level of convenience at our disposal. Pretty cool, but take heed—one day it be us... Read more...
Anyone who has ever tried to touch up a professional photograph knows that it can be a slow, painstaking process, depending on the image and what exactly needs manipulated. To help with that, NVIDIA is introducing GPU-accelerated neural filters to Adobe Photoshop, which leverage artificial intelligence and its GeForce... Read more...
Many in the tech world are familiar with the term “Moore’s Law.” Moore’s Law has served as a guiding light for many tech companies over the last few decades when it comes to increasing transistor density. However, both scientists and tech industries have been concerned about when Moore’s Law will cease to be relevant... Read more...
Star Wars fans are likely familiar with the scene where Luke Skywalker receives a new hand. Luke twitches his hand as he responds to being poked by a robot. This kind of technology is no longer only attainable in fantasy or science fiction. Researchers at RMIT University have created new electronic skin that... Read more...
The proliferation of 'fake news' on social media is not just annoying, it has the potential to influence elections and policies, depending on the subject matter and how believable the content. In an effort to weed out misleading content and "combat disinformation," Microsoft is launching its Video Authenticator tool... Read more...
Are artificially intelligent pilots better at taking to the skies than human fliers? We are about to find out. The final competition in DARPA's AlphaDogfight trials are set to take place on August 18-20, though virtually instead of in-person because of the Coronavirus pandemic. And don't worry, nobody will be harmed... Read more...
