AI-generated “painted” portrait will be auctioned as art by Christie’s

AI-generated “painted” portrait will be auctioned as art by Christie’s

What appears at first glance to be a painted portrait of a man is, its creators say, the work of an artificial intelligence trained on artwork. The "painting" will be sold as art by the auction house Christie's, making it the first work created by an AI algorithm that is sold by the auction house. The issue has raised questions over what can be considered art.

Voicera EVA AI mimics human attention to highlight important points

Voicera EVA AI mimics human attention to highlight important points

The popularity of voice-controlled smart assistants has substantially pushed forward the fields of speech recognition and natural language processing (NLP). This, in turn, has improved other products that make use of such technologies, like transcription engines used in meetings and interviews. But it’s one thing to simply to accurately transcribe spoken sometimes barely understandable words into text and another to extract and highlight important points in a meeting involving multiple people. Voicera’s in-meeting assistant EVA can do both and it’s no surprise that its secret sauce is artificial intelligence. Specifically, the Progressive Attention AI that the company is now making available to the public.

NVIDIA Quadro RTX bring Turing architecture real-time ray tracing

NVIDIA Quadro RTX bring Turing architecture real-time ray tracing

As technology evolves, so do users’ tastes and expectations. No longer are they satisfied with crude digital approximations of real-world objects and demand convincing and photorealistic renderings more than what current computing technology can provide. Unless they happen to have one of NVIDIA’s three new GPUs. Boasting to have brought technology that wasn’t expected until at least 2023, NVIDIA is announcing its newest Turing graphics architecture that mixes raw processing power and AI to provide real-time ray tracing capabilities.

We can’t trust self-driving car AI just yet

We can’t trust self-driving car AI just yet

Self-driving cars are the future. Almost every car maker, in one way or another, has embraced technology that can take over the wheel partially or completely. It has become not a question of “if” but of “when”. Some car makers are convinced that self-driving cars will be hitting the road in two years’ time. That, however, might be an extremely optimistic outlook that may miss out on how self-driving car tech just isn’t trustworthy yet, and it’s not for the reasons you might immediately think.

This AI system takes on potholes and other road defects

This AI system takes on potholes and other road defects

Researchers with the University of Waterloo have developed a new system that uses artificial intelligence to deal with potholes and other road issues. Though robots aren't out fixing these damaged spots (yet), machine intelligence is helping humans identify the defects using images gathered by cameras mounted on vehicles. Rather than manually scanning roads for issues, cities can use the system to automatically find and flag these spots.

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.
