New technological waves have often been great starting places for companies to burst onto the scene and make a significant impact, but equally so, these changes in the way things are done also allow for already established players to reinvigorate themselves.
Fortnite is introducing two major new changes in an effort to address the vast range of skill levels across players of the hugely popular video game.
Researchers at TU Delft in the Netherlands have recently developed a convolutional neural network (CNN)-based model to reconstruct drawings that have deteriorated over time. In their study, published in Springer’s Machine Vision and Applications, they specifically used the model to reconstruct some of Vincent Van Gogh’s drawings that were ruined over the years due to ink fading and discoloration.
The promise of blockchain technology couldn’t be greater than in the healthcare sector. A prime example is the groundbreaking deployment of blockchain technology by Intermountain Healthcare, a Utah-based, not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals. This medical group has more than 1,600 physicians and advanced practice clinicians at 180 clinics.
Traditional financial institutions and fintech start-ups alike are looking for more candidates who specialize in artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science. According to reporting by Bloomberg reporting and data from LinkedIn, job listings requiring these skills in the financial industry increased nearly 60% in the past year.
A new technology using artificial intelligence detects depressive language in social media posts more accurately than current systems and uses less data to do it.
Cryptocurrency compliance company Elliptic has raised $23 million in a Series B funding round led by SBI Holdings, a Japanese financial institution which has been trialing an XRP-powered store settlement payments app.
A team of scientists has developed a computational model that uses artificial intelligence to find sites for hydropower dams in order to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Directorate General of Training (DGT), under the skill development and entrepreneurship ministry, has signed an agreement with IT major IBM to carry out a nationwide Train-the-Trainer programme in basic artificial intelligence, an official statement said on Wednesday.
The Uttar Pradesh government is planning to use artificial intelligence AI-bots to upgrade the examination system for secondary school education and make education free from corruption and negligence.
How do you stop European tech firms from moving to the US once they start eyeing the big time? Part of the solution is finding them access to funding at home.
Researchers at Hefei University of Technology in China and various universities in Japan have recently developed a unique emotion sensing system that can recognize people’s emotions based on their body gestures. They presented this new AI- powered system, called EmoSense, in a paper pre-published on arXiv.
Now, 10 months later, the move is finally happening, the delay a measure of how controversial and painful this process has been. When the restructuring was announced last year, DeepMind was accused of breaking a promise not to hand over any NHS data to the American search giant.
Facebook has launched its range of Portal smart home devices, which use AI-powered cameras to make video calls between its users.
Gatwick has become the UK’s first airport to confirm it will use facial-recognition cameras on a permanent basis for ID checks before passengers board planes.
Neural networks have given researchers a powerful tool for looking into the future and making predictions. But one drawback is their insatiable need for data and computing power (“compute”) to process all that information.
