Devices like Roombas rely on maps to find their way around your home. This is done by the robot moving around and when it detects an obstacle, it marks it down, and ultimately this creates a map of the room so that it knows where it can or cannot go. However, Facebook thinks that they might have developed an AI for robots that could potentially eliminate the need for maps.
Clearview AI is apparently a startup that helps identify people by simply having a snapshot of you (or your face – precisely).Even though this is being used by the Law Enforcement at certain places, this can be potentially a privacy threat.Of course, it will definitely help identify the criminals faster while utilizing technology. However, it looks like Clearview’s app might end up being accessible to almost everyone soon enough.As per […]
We’ve seen AI used for all kinds of things, ranging from automation and to even helping doctors detect diseases and illnesses they might have otherwise missed. Now it looks like AI could soon be applied to music, thanks to a collaboration between musician Björk and Microsoft, where they are using AI to adapt Björk’s music to the ever-changing skies.
There is a reason why movies aren’t released the moment they are ready. This is because there are a variety of factors to consider, such as whether or not there are movies that are similar in nature that could potentially distract from the release, how many people are free to watch the movie (such as during the holiday season), and so on.
If you own a D-Link camera, you might be pleased to learn that the company is planning on introducing some new features to its home security cameras where with the use of AI, it will soon be able to detect people and also when a glass in your home breaks, suggesting that someone might be looking to break in.
When it comes to detecting certain diseases, it can be a bit of a mixed bag because humans can make errors. For example when it comes to detecting breast cancer, current methods actually have pretty high rates of false positives. While it is better to be safe than sorry, the downside is that false positives can lead to stress on the patient’s end and potentially unnecessary medical interventions.
A lot of our devices these days require us to touch them physically in order to interact with them. This is not a bad thing but if you’ve ever wanted to live in a movie where we can interact with things without actually touching them, Samsung seems to be taking steps in ensuring that this could happen.
The problem with our smartphones is that for the most part, the screen is still too small for us to do extended typing on them. If you’ve ever wanted to write up a document or a long email, you know that it can be a bit tiring trying to type it all out on your smartphone’s screen, but Samsung has a potential solution for you.
One of the features of Adobe Photoshop for the desktop is called Select Subject. This is a feature that is powered by Adobe’s Sense AI engine where it makes it easy for users to select images of their subjects in the app. Given that not all subject matters are regular-shaped, this can be a tricky process for those who aren’t too adept at using selection tools like the lasso.
With social media being so easy to access and anyone can post and say anything, sometimes people end up saying things they don’t mean or say things without thinking about how it might affect the person reading it. Instagram seems to have a new feature that could give you some pause.
As our smartphones are so slim and tiny, it is obvious that in terms of hardware, it would be hard to match the optics found in bigger, more dedicated cameras. As such, a lot of smartphones are turning to the use of software to help process images to try and bring them closer to what professional cameras can do.
When we drive, we use our eyes to see what’s around us and that lets us know when to brake, when to move forwards, when to turn, and so on. However, since computers don’t have “eyes”, at least not in the traditional sense, they need to use cameras, but even then, cameras need to be taught to know what they’re looking at.
Creating 3D models can be tricky because unlike 2D images which are “flat”, 3D models aren’t and as such, designers need to consider all the various angles of the model. Naturally, this also means that creating 3D models could potentially take a lot longer to build and render compared to 2D.
Calculator apps are a dime a dozen but for the most part, you need to know how to solve the problem first. However, what if you don’t know how to solve a math problem? It seems that Microsoft is here to help as the company has since launched a new app called the Microsoft Math Solver.
