Google Docs gets AI-based tool to fix grammar mistakes

Google is utilizing artificial intelligence to help its Google Docs users improve their grammar. The company recently detailed a new feature called Grammar Suggestions, which offers ways to improve or correct any grammar issues it finds within a document. According to Google, its artificial intelligence is able to spot multiple types of grammar issues ranging from big to small.

DARPA AIE program will explore AI for problem-solving machines

DAPRA has announced a new program called Artificial Intelligence Exploration (AIE) that aims to surface new AI concepts at a faster pace than competing efforts elsewhere. The overall goal of the project is to ensure the US maintains an advantage when it comes to artificial intelligence technologies. The program will involve a series of "regular and relatively short-term technology development projects," according to DARPA Deputy Director Peter Highnam.

Move Mirror AI matches your pose with one in 80,000 images

Move Mirror AI matches your pose with one in 80,000 images

Artificial intelligence has become so sophisticated these days that it can identify objects and, in the case of Amazon, even help you order that object. But stationary objects with fixed shapes are one thing. Moving bodies with moving parts and uncommon positions are another. Trying to identify your pose and match it with a set of photos with similar poses is the holy grail of pose estimation and it is exactly what Google is presenting with its Move Mirror AI Experiment. Best of all, all you need is a web browser and a webcam.

MediaTek Helio A22 to deliver AI features to mid-range

MediaTek Helio A22 to deliver AI features to mid-range

Qualcomm may have become the household name in the mobile application processor (AP) market but it is hardly the only one. Even before Apple’s A chips or Samsung’s Exynos, there was MediaTek. Often the preferred processor of Chinese brands and less expensive smartphones, MediaTek has been making promises of high-end features at affordable prices, at least as far as its chips are concerned. Now the Taiwanese company is trying to nibble at Qualcomm’s bottom line with its new Helio A series designed to bring camera and AI features to the budget smartphone market.

Microsoft, Walmart enter multi-year AI deal to take on Amazon

Walmart and Microsoft have struck a new partnership and they're very clear about why: to take on Amazon. The two companies announced a five-year deal today, one that revolves around Microsoft's artificial intelligence technologies and the ways they can help Walmart retail stores. This follows a recent report claiming that Walmart was considering Microsoft technology that will allow it to launch its own checkout-free grocery stores similar to Amazon Go.

NVIDIA AI scrubs noise and watermarks from digital images

NVIDIA AI scrubs noise and watermarks from digital images

NVIDIA researchers are back with yet another digital image technology that pushes the limits of traditional image manipulation. Unlike Adobe's recently disclosed project, which involved a neural network trained to spot digitally altered images, NVIDIA's newest creation can scrub digital sensor noise and watermarks from digital images. Thanks to the artificial intelligence powering it, the feature is far more effective than existing denoising tools.

AI-powered instant camera prints doodles, not photographs

AI-powered instant camera prints doodles, not photographs

Digital cameras are old news. Instant film cameras are back in vogue, but hardly inspiring. The market needs something fresh, and that something may be doodles. A newly detailed camera powered by artificial intelligence brings a twist to the photography industry, snapping "doodles" instead of actual images. The camera is a DIY project involving a Raspberry Pi and some Google magic.

US Army deploys Uptake AI to predict vehicle component failures

US Army deploys Uptake AI to predict vehicle component failures

The US Army will soon start testing an artificial intelligence system from Uptake that warns when a vehicle may have a component about to fail. The software is designed to "increase the readiness" of Bradley Fighting Vehicles, namely to predict when something is going to fail before it actually does. This, hopefully, will help keep soldiers safe and reduce vehicular downtime.

Google Duplex is about to start calling businesses for real

Google Duplex is about to start calling businesses for real

Google Duplex, the controversial phone call-making AI intended to make reservations for you, will begin public testing within the next few weeks, the company has confirmed. Previewed at I/O earlier this year, Duplex may sound like a human on the call, but it's actually the Google Assistant tasked with going through the steps of making a restaurant reservation, an appointment for a haircut, or finding out a business' opening hours.

This AI can spot fake photos that fool the human eye

This AI can spot fake photos that fool the human eye

It's easier than ever to modify an image and that's a big problem. In the days of social media and instant sharing, any given image can quickly go viral, gracing millions of eyes and, potentially, shaping the perceptions, beliefs, or attitudes of the people who see it. This makes it more important than ever to find and denounce fake photos -- ones altered to show something that didn't happen -- and artificial intelligence may be the solution.

Computer AI team beats humans at DOTA 2

Computer AI team beats humans at DOTA 2

This week it's happened, a machine beat humans at a complex esports game, and we're all doomed. The game is Dota 2, and the machine goes by the name OpenAI Five. The machine is a set of five neural networks, and they've begun beating amateur human teams at Dota 2 without breaking too much of a digital sweat. In the near future, the machines will attempt to beat the real professionals.

Bing mobile apps updated with AI-powered visual search tool

Bing mobile apps updated with AI-powered visual search tool

Microsoft has updated its Bing mobile apps for iOS and Android with new visual search capabilities. This tool is powered by artificial intelligence, which enables the user to snap an image of an object, then get information about that object through a Bing search. At no point does the user have to input text, helping for those times when you don't have quite the right words to search.
