Samsung NEON artificial humans could be on Galaxy phones soon

Samsung NEON artificial humans could be on Galaxy phones soon

AI and machine learning have become the buzzwords of today's tech world and news but, save for a few exceptions, people envision them as disembodied voices like Siri or even impersonal bits and bytes that silent work miracle behind computer screens. At CES 2020 earlier this year, Samsung and its subsidiary Star Labs showed off AI that was both relatable but also eerily too human. As if it wasn't enough to have them standing at arms' length on wall-mounted displays, it seems that Samsung is toying with the idea of bringing NEON to phones soon.

Google Verse by Verse tool helps the public create poems like pros

Google has another experimental tool that anyone can access and it's called 'Verse by Verse.' The new tool enables anyone to generate poems in the style of famous poets with the help of artificial intelligence. Verse by Verse involves input from both human and machine to make the final poem, one that may be less than sensical depending on how heavily you rely on the AI's suggestions.

Google TensorFlow ML framework gets an Apple M1-optimized version

As more and more new late 2020 MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros land in users' hands, don't be surprised to see the pile-up of news and reports about their impressive performance. That has always been Apple's assurance anyway for those uncertain about the switch to a new Apple Silicon. Much of the company's messaging has revolved around the usual culprits of office work and video editing but now it is trying to appeal to a particular class of users, specifically developers need to do some AI and machine learning on their M1-powered Macs.

Machine learning helps translate lost languages

Machine learning helps translate lost languages

Researchers at MIT have created a new system that uses machine learning to help linguists decipher languages that have been lost to time. Research suggests that most languages that have ever existed are no longer spoken, with dozens of dead languages considered to be undeciphered. Linguists don't know enough about the grammar, vocabulary, and syntax to understand texts left behind in these lost languages.

Meet the company making pandemic lines less frustrating

Meet the company making pandemic lines less frustrating

At some point I think we all realized, grudgingly, that things weren't going back to normal any time soon. Plenty of things have been vying for "theme of 2020" but COVID-19 and social distancing have probably had the biggest impact on our day to day lives. For all that we've been told, repeatedly, over the past few years that machine learning is going to Change The World, can it make navigating a pandemic any easier?

Adobe Illustrator “Recolor Artwork” works like magic for iterative design

Adobe Illustrator “Recolor Artwork” works like magic for iterative design

Today Adobe delivered a sneak preview for the near-future feature called Recolor Artwork. It works like magic, intelligently seeking out the color pallet with which you've designed a piece of work, allowing you to change said pallet on the fly. Better yet, it allows you to intelligently select a whole new color pallet from an existing picture, lift it, and use it as your own.

Amazon Alexa gains new abilities and more privacy controls

Amazon Alexa gains new abilities and more privacy controls

Amazon announced quite a handful of new products today, including some from its Ring subsidiary, but it isn't just bringing new hardware to its customers. The e-commerce giant also announced upgrades to the hands-free experience that powers many of its devices, giving the AI-powered Alexa more skills and more brains. Going beyond that, however, Amazon is also trying to address one of Alexa's most unpopular flaw: its privacy.

Adobe Liquid Mode uses AI to make reading PDFs on your phone easier

Adobe Liquid Mode uses AI to make reading PDFs on your phone easier

We live in a digital and mobile world but, ironically, many of the things we deal with still aren't designed to fit both. Electronic documents that come in PDF form are one of the biggest offenders and while there is no shortage of PDF reader apps for phones, actually reading them on small screens is an entirely different matter. To address that problem, Adobe has embarked on a multi-year campaign to make PDFs behave better without actually changing them and the first stop in that journey is the new Liquid Mode for Acrobat Reader on mobile.

Photoshop Sky Replacement is more sophisticated than it sounds

Photoshop Sky Replacement is more sophisticated than it sounds

Let's face it. Despite concerns over easily "Photoshopped" fakes and advice to keep photos real, there will always be times when you'd wish a more dramatic sky was available in your photo. True to its original calling as a photo editing software, Photoshop's upcoming Sky Replacement feature will offer users the chance to have a more emphatic background to go with their images. But before you knock the feature off as something that can be done with simple selection tools and layers, Adobe is unsurprisingly explaining that there's quite a lot of AI and machine learning involved here as well.

NVIDIA to officially buy Arm, focus on AI, promises neutrality

NVIDIA to officially buy Arm, focus on AI, promises neutrality

Putting all speculation to rest, NVIDIA has finally announced that it is making an official bid to acquire Arm Limited from SoftBank. While the final say will be with regulators, this would mean that NVIDIA could soon be the owner of the intellectual property that pretty much powers the world's smartphones, cars, and many embedded devices. That does raise concerns about NVIDIA's hold on such IP and the computer graphics tech giant promises it will be business as usual as far as that licensing business goes.

Google’s Fabricius culture tool translates words into hieroglyphs

Google has introduced a new Arts & Culture tool called 'Fabricius' that enables anyone to learn about the ancient Egyptian writing system known as hieroglyphics, which are symbols used to represents words and phrases. Only a small group of people understood how to write in this system thousands of years ago, but it has since been decoded thanks to the Rosetta Stone discovery.
