It's a horror story for the modern world: you show someone an image on your phone, only for them to start browsing uninvited. You snatch your phone away, hoping they didn't stumble across one of the intimate photos that may be residing, fully exposed, on your handset. Artificial intelligence may be the solution to this problem, and it comes in the form of an app called Nude.

Alice is Yandex’s own voice assistant, speaks excellent Russian

It seems that AI voice assistants are the new chess pieces in mobile superiority so, naturally, Yandex is jumping in on the game. Regarded as the Google of Russia, and simultaneously the greatest threat to Google in Russia, Yandex has an equivalent to nearly every Google service and feature available. So it was really only a matter of time before it came out with its own Google Assistant counterpart. Meet Alice (not the Resident Evil Alice), the smart assistant that will perfectly understand you. If you speak Russian, that is.

Tesla and AMD tipped in development of AI chip for autonomous cars

Tesla has been tipped in a project to develop its own artificial intelligence chip, and sources claim it is working with AMD to refine this chip. Such a chip may pave the way for a future in which Tesla vehicles are fully autonomous, but details are slight at this time. Sources indicate that Tesla is developing its chip on top of a foundation of AMD intellectual property, and that testing with an early implementation is already underway.

AI and non-invasive MRI can diagnose Alzheimer’s disease long before doctors can

AI and non-invasive MRI can diagnose Alzheimer’s disease long before doctors can

A pair of researchers from the University of Bari in Italy called Nicola Amoroso and Marianna La Rocca and a team of colleagues have developed a new machine-learning algorithm that is able to help diagnose Alzheimer's disease up to nine years before doctors can diagnose the condition. The system the researchers have developed is also able to discern structural changes in the brain that are caused by Alzheimer's.

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Huawei promotes Mate 10 “real AI phone” by mocking Face ID

Face ID is perhaps the most contentious iPhone X feature next to the notch and amojis. The public demo’s seeming failure, which Apple has tried to explain away, seems to only add to the skepticism of Apple’s Touch ID replacement. Smelling blood, Huawei lost no time in trying to take a swipe at Apple. But it’s only able to do so because it believes it has the “real AI phone”, and it’s inviting the world to see it next month when it unveils the Huawei Mate 10.

Facebook taps AI to fix crooked 360-degree panoramic photos

Facebook taps AI to fix crooked 360-degree panoramic photos

Taking a panoramic photo with your phone is easy, but taking a high-quality 360-degree panorama with your phone isn't. The process typically involves opening an app and slowly rotating the phone in a circle while holding the handset steady. Though these apps provide a straight line and on-screen guidance to encourage users to maintain a proper horizon, most people fail to do that. The results are tilted, crooked panoramas that make VR viewing less than comfortable.
