Google has been able to train its various DeepMind AIs to do some very cool things. The AlphaZero AI was able to destroy the highly acclaimed Stockfish chess program over a 100-game match, winning 28 of the matches outright and tying the other 72 matches for a no loss record. DeepMind certainly isn’t the only AI that has performed some cool and impressive feats, however. With respect to a pure gaming venue, EA has developed an AI that is able to successfully battle human players in Battlefield 1. And yet another AI, inspired by the human visual cortex, was recently demonstrated as having... Read more...
After months of internal and public testing (via the Windows Insider program), Microsoft released the Windows 10 April 2018 Update on the very last day of April. Microsoft rolled the update out in phases to help minimize install failures and hardware incompatibilities (which did tend to pop up on occasion). Today, Microsoft announced that the April 2018 Update is now available for all Windows 10 PCs. The company says that it was able to achieve broad availability in a relatively short period of time thanks in part to machine learning.  "Our AI approach intelligently selects... Read more...
After taking a measured, wait-and-see approach to machine learning, Arm is ready to jump into the fold full throttle. Today, the company is following up on its Project Trillium announcement from back in February with new details surrounding its machine learning processor, also known as the neural-network processing unit or NPU. To quickly recap, Project Trillium encompasses Arm’s push to leverage machine learning and neural network operations across their line-up of processors – whether that processing takes place on the CPU, GPU, or its new NPU. Arm’s goal is to make machine... Read more...
NVIDIA is talking up some new AI techniques that well help robots to more efficiently work alongside humans. The research was led by NVIDIA researchers Stan Birchfield and Jonathan Tremblay. The duo was able to develop a deep learning-based system that is said to be the first of its kind that can teach a robot to complete a task simply by observing the actions of a human. NVIDIA says that the research is meant to enhance communications between humans and robots while furthering research that allows people to work alongside robots seamlessly. "For robots to perform useful tasks in real-world settings,... Read more...
NVIDIA researchers have come up with some new artificial intelligence (AI) technology that can help fill in the blanks with respect to images that have either been corrupted or otherwise having missing details. With a team lead by NVIDIA's Guilin Liu, missing pixels can be quickly reclaimed with stunning results. This process, which NVIDIA calls image inpainting, can be used not only for restoring missing image pixels, but also for removing an unwanted object from a scene and filling it back in. If this sounds familiar, it's because Photoshop has been able to perform similar operations with Content-Aware... Read more...
Are you one of those people that is constantly being criticized for mumbling or speaking too softly; so much so that no one can clearly understand what you're saying? That may not be a problem for a new communication device from MIT called the AlterEgo. AlterEgo is a rather odd-looking wearable device that mounts to your head and wraps around the back of your neck. Electrodes mounted on the device are than able to identify neuromuscular signals in the jaw and face to read a human's subvocalization. Subvocalization refers to the muscular movements that are made when we almost imperceptibly say words... Read more...
Of the over 28,000 attendees at NVIDIA’s GTC 2018 GPU Technology Conference, many converged on the San Jose Convention Center this week to learn about advancements in AI and Machine Learning that the company would bring to the table for developers, researchers and service providers in the field. Today, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang took to the stage to unveil a number of GPU-powered innovations for Machine Learning, including a new AI super computer and an updated version of the company’s powerful Tesla V100 GPU that now sports a hefty 32 Gigabytes of on-board HBM2 memory. NVIDIA Tesla V100... Read more...
Microsoft today announced that it will be bringing a new artificial intelligence platform to Windows 10 with the upcoming spring update. The AI platform, which is being called Windows ML, will allow developers to use pre-trained machine learning models within their apps to use across a broad spectrum of Windows-based devices. When it comes to hardware support, Microsoft says that Windows ML is "tuned for efficiency across the diverse silicon" that is already supported on Windows platforms. Microsoft will support current and future hardware (including CPUs, and GPUs that support DirectX 12) and... Read more...
Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) are coming in at a rapid pace, and mobile devices seem to be the new frontier. ARM's processor architecture underpins nearly every smartphone sold today and provides the brains for countless other products in widely-varied market segments. Today, the company is looking to expand its domination of the smartphone world with a new suite of products -- Project Trillium -- that will boost machine learning and neural network operations. Taken down to the basics, Project Trillium consists of three primary components. The first is the actual machine learning processor,... Read more...
We've all been there; we get to the airport well in advance, check our bags, [hopefully] sail through the security screening process, and arrive our gate only to find that the flight has been delayed at the last minute. Sometimes it's an annoyance, but other times a cascading level of delays can cause some major headaches for your travel plans. Google, however, it looking to add a little bit more clarity for frequent travelers when it comes to flight delays – and even predict them. The company has updated its Flights app with new machine learning algorithms that to find common patterns that... Read more...
Google officially unveiled the Clips wearable camera back in October at the same time it also rolled out the high-end $999 Pixelbook and Pixel Buds earphones. If you have been waiting to get your hands on that AI-powered Clips camera and didn’t order in the early moments of availability, you will be out of luck for at least a few months. Clips cameras went fast when orders opened and as of writing, there is now a waitlist for the device. Shipping is currently pushed all the way out to March as of now, and when you go to the official Clips camera page, you can click a button and be automatically... Read more...
We all know that Microsoft has made some incredible advances in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) over the past few years. However, the software giant is taking things to the next level with new AI that was developed using a Generative Adversarial Network (GAN). Put simply, Microsoft calls the AI a “drawing bot”. The drawing bot is capable of generating images using caption-like text descriptions as the input. Using this technique, Microsoft's researchers were able to achieve a three-fold uplift in image quality compared to previous text-to-image methods. When drawing an image,... Read more...
Although NVIDIA officially unveiled its Volta-based GV100 GPU over seven months ago, and an unwitting intern may have leaked pictures of the card we’re going to show you here today shortly thereafter, the NVIDIA TITAN V featuring the GV100 GPU began shipping just this past week. The NVIDIA TITAN V targets a very specific audience and is designed for professional and academic deep learning applications, which partly explains its lofty $3,000 price tag. Unlike NVIDIA's previous-gen consumer flagship, the TITAN Xp, the TITAN V is clearly not designed for gamers. But since it features NVIDIA’s... Read more...
Amazon Web Services (AWS) has been firing on all cylinders lately. Last week, the company announced a new Secret Region for U.S. intelligence agencies, and this week it has announced a new camera that will help businesses leverage the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI). Meet AWS DeepLens, which is a deep learning camera that is capable of wireless running real-time computer vision models. At the heart of the DeepLens is an HD (1080p) video camera and an Intel Atom X5 processor that can process over 100 billion deep learning operations per second. The camera runs on Ubuntu 16.04 and is preloaded... Read more...
