We all need a bit of escapism sometimes, and there’s nothing like a blast from the pop-culture past to do the trick. Today, we’re bringing characters from classic Japanese anime, games and TV shows to life — from Pac-Man to Hello Kitty — with augmented reality (AR) in Search. Japan’s anime and video game culture …

We’ve come a long way since Intel introduced the first microprocessor in 1971. Their 4004 held 2,300 transistors, with today’s best chips exceeding billions, harnessing more and more power since their birth. But every time Intel releases a new computer chip, it’s a costly investment, as they need to add new instructions of computer programs …

Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have created a tiny wireless implant that can provide real-time measurements of tissue oxygen levels deep underneath the skin. The device, which is smaller than the average ladybug and powered by ultrasound waves, could help doctors monitor the health of transplanted organs or tissue and provide an early …

Darktrace, a leading autonomous cyber security AI company, today announced that a study conducted by MIT Technology Review finds that 96% of IT and security leaders are now preparing for the emergence of AI-powered cyber-attacks, with many embracing AI defenses. MIT Technology Review Insights surveyed over 300 C-level executives, directors and managers worldwide between December …

The U.S. transportation industry is the nation’s largest generator of greenhouse gases, accounting for nearly one-third of climate-warming emissions. To move towards a clean-energy future, developing zero-emissions technologies for heavy-duty vehicles is critical. A new partnership comprising Los Alamos National Laboratory, Advent Technology Holdings Inc., Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) …

Rapid deployment of artificial intelligence and machine learning to tackle coronavirus must still go through ethical checks and balances, or we risk harming already disadvantaged communities in the rush to defeat the disease. In a health crisis of this magnitude, the stakes for fairness and equity are extremely high Alexa Hagerty This is according to …

Microsoft has reportedly been awarded a ten year contract worth close to US$22 billion, to provide 120,000 military-grade augmented reality (AR) headsets to the US Army. Popularised through mobile apps such as Pokémon Go and face filters on social media, AR technology is fundamentally about superimposing digital images over real-world environments. The AR interface commissioned …

Artificial Intelligence can sustain the environment by helping to reduce GHG emissions and optimize the use of natural resources. However, AI can have unintended consequences – such as by increasing demand and thus increasing carbon footprint. This four-step plan can ensure AI can be deployed in a responsible way. With Artificial Intelligence (AI), a software …

Artificial Intelligence can improve lives, but to avoid issues such as accuracy, human control, transparency, bias and privacy challenges, its use needs to be carefully and ethically managed. One way to do this is to set up a national “Centre for Excellence” to champion the ethical use of AI and help roll out training and …

Creating a smart algorithm is not yet a given for many entrepreneurs and small businesses, who might lack the resources to launch a successful Artificial Intelligence program. Much like the rest of the world, Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) has a 1% problem. While (very) large corporations benefit from the vast amount of data available to them, as well …
