NVIDIA will be releasing an update to TensorRT-LLM for AI inferencing, which will allow desktops and laptops running RTX GPUs with at least 8GB of VRAM to run the open-source software. This update will introduce support to more large language models. However, only users who are currently using Windows 11 will be able... Read more...
Google is testing a new feature on YouTube and, stop us if you've heard this one before, it's based on generative AI. Advanced machine learning algorithms and large language models are popping up in numerous products from Google, Microsoft, and almost every other tech company under the sun. This time, Google is...

The last year has seen an explosion of interest in generative AI tools like ChatGPT and Midjourney. Now, you can simply tell a computer what you want it to create, and it might just be good enough to replace a human. These tools are causing consternation in some corners of the internet, but others have embraced them... Read more...
A researcher out of Amsterdam is asserting in his recent study that our love and growing dependence on all things AI (artificial intelligence) will draw enough electricity to power a country the size of Sweden in less than five years. Alex de Vries from the VU Amsterdam School of Business and Economics, in his... Read more...
A team of British researchers have found a way to use AI to learn keyboard keystrokes with 95 percent accuracy using nothing but the mics on an iPhone. This spells more trouble in the already complex and increasingly insecure realm of personal data security. In a recently published paper submitted by a research... Read more...
A new study finds that robots can learn from other robots, much the same as humans learn from one another. The paper takes a deep dive into a new approach to growing an area of machine learning (ML) research known as Lifelong Learning (LL). Humans have learned from one another since the beginning of time. Whether... Read more...
We have seen prior evidence of Apple building a generative AI like ChatGPT, but reports emerged a few hours ago that the first fruits of the firm's machine learning-fueled labor are actually being tested in house. According to unnamed sources, the Apple framework upon which its chatbot's large language model (LLM) is... Read more...
AI has arrived and it seems to be everywhere. But what makes AI tick on ultra-low power devices like smartphones? How can we expect to harness not only recommendation engines and Google maps, but also, generative AI and true machine learning on devices that consume only a few watts of power? Let's find out and learn... Read more...
The generative AI genie is out of the bottle, and we're still not sure what form this electronic entity will take. Microsoft and Google are both pushing a new version of web search based on AI, and these machines are increasingly being used to generate images, videos, and text that look like they were created by...

Microsoft has announced a wide range of updates to “deliver new AI innovation,” across a variety of its IPs like Bing, Edge, SwiftKey, and Skype. Perhaps the launch which is set to make the biggest splash is the introduction of the Bing Widget, as noted in our headline. This home screen UI hogging widget is coming to... Read more...
Microsoft's Bing AI chatbot launched earlier this month and quickly came under heat for giving some quite disturbing answers. Answers varied from telling a New York Times journalist he was not happily married, to stating its desire to steal nuclear codes. The exchanges prompted Microsoft to quickly limit the number of...

Moore’s Law has been at the beating heart of technology advancement ever since it was first posited in 1965. Gordon Moore coined the golden rule which observes and predicts that the number of transistors in a microchip double roughly every two years. This is largely accomplished by making transistors ever smaller, but... Read more...
Smartphones have indisputably transformed the way we capture photos and videos of the world around us. We don’t even need to jump back to film’s heyday to make the point, either. Smartphones streamline the process over even standalone digital cameras through Internet connectivity, accessibility, and ease of use. These... 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...
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...
Artificial intelligence is only getting better, and it is only a matter of time until our robot overlords take over. Until then, Sony and Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital have partnered to make their AI better at racing. We have definitely been impressed by the amazing leaps done by their teams and they have... 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...
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...
“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...

Artificial intelligence is likely going to be a cornerstone of technology in the future. Until then, it needs to be improved, trained, and implemented well. Video games are an excellent way to train an AI due to the various paths and steps that can be taken, but it required some work to do. Now, the team at DeepMind... Read more...
