Criminal shows have long been mocked for their use of fantasy technology that could, among other things, enhance pixelated low-resolution images in a way that made them both higher resolution and very clear. While you can scale up an image using something like Photoshop, the quality isn't very good. A new AI-based tool is different, taking low-res images and upscaling them while maintaining quality.

Adobe Scribbler AI can create a realistic color image from a sketch

Adobe has detailed a research project in which it has developed an artificial intelligence capable of generating realistic colored images from a sketch. This isn't the first time we've seen an AI able to generate realistic images, but they generally lack an element of control that lets the user dictate the final results. Adobe's Scribbler is different.

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.

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.

Autonomous Smart Desk 3 has a sideways touchscreen

The Autonomous Smart Desk 3 has an embedded touchscreen display that'll tell you when to stand up or sit down. This desk is also a standing desk - as you might have guessed - that's motorized for ease in rising. It's the touchscreen, though, that I've found strangest - as it's embedded at an angle, aimed at the user in the center.

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.

Google Street View employs AI to read street, business signs

Google Street View employs AI to read street, business signs

Google Street View is all grown up. For the first time in nearly eight years, its cameras are finally getting an upgrade. But more than just producing clearer and crisper images, the higher quality images from the more powerful hardware have another purpose. In line with Google’s favorite obsession, Google Street View is putting machine learning and artificial intelligence to work, using these high res images to detect, process, and, if necessary, translate street names and business signs, making it even easier to index the whole, physical world and put them in Google’s hands.
