Hardware Unboxed has released its newest video where they dissect the image quality of Battlefield V with the new NVIDIA technology called Deep Learning Super Sample (DLSS) enabled. They not only compare the DLSS image quality to the native 4K image; Tim takes it a step further and compares the...
Researchers in the USA and China have published a paper in Nature Medicine that finds artificial intelligence (A.I.) is as capable as an experienced physician's assistant when it comes to automatically diagnosing common childhood diseases. Data from 600,000 Chinese pediatric patient records...
Wall Street Journal reporter David Pierce was privy to a new form of pedestrian only, augmented reality navigation that is coming to Google Maps in the future. In the video below, Mr. Pierce takes his phone's camera and uses it to capture images of landmarks around him such as signs, shops, etc...
Jubilant Tesla Model 3 owner Amit says the Autopilot feature that enables the car to self-drive; saved his life by avoiding an accident. When another car entered his lane on I-95, the Autopilot feature in his Tesla Model 3 emitted an audible alarm and swerved to the left to avoid the accident...
Delaware Destroyer on YouTube has used artificial intelligence (AI) to create a deep-fake of Steve Buscemi's face on Jennifer Lawrence's body. It is amazing how much better these amalgamations are becoming. Thanks Schtask !
Mashup of Steve Buscemi and Jennifer Lawrence
NVIDIA has updated its Q4 2019 financial guidance where it lowered its Q4 2019 revenue from $2.7 billion to $2.2 billion. This is due to slowdowns in both the Gaming and Datacenter sectors. NVIDIA admits that higher prices for high-end Turing GPUs has negatively affected sales as "macroeconomic...

The Iowa DOT and Iowa State University researchers have teamed up to use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to analyze traffic pattern data such as speed, accidents, weather conditions, congestion, and more. This is accomplished by using the TensorFlow framework from Google...
Medical schools typically recruit students by choosing candidates that can memorize tables of organic chemistry compounds and other rote memorization. Jefferson Health CEO and Thomas Jefferson University president, Dr. Steven Klasko suggests this is designed to "suck the creativity out of...
Researchers discussing artificial intelligence (A.I.) have voiced similar opinions related to the necessity for more accurate data collection. The invention of the internet allowed companies to collect enough data to create algorithms, machine learning, and artificial intelligence technologies...
The Commerce Department is considering export restrictions on certain artificial intelligence technologies as concerns about national security have arisen. The Export Controls Act of 2018 added restrictions to "emerging and foundational technologies." The Commerce Department added artificial...
Engineering students at Jiao Tong University in Shanghai have invented an artificial intelligence (A.I.) powered self-checkout system called AEYA-Go that scans and identifies the food on customer's plates. The A.I. accomplishes this task by distinguishing the unique color and pattern of various...
A Doom modder named "hidfan" on the Doomworld forums has used artificial intelligence (A.I.) to increase the texture fidelity of the 1993 cult classic. The Doom Neural Upscale 2X mod uses a combination of Super Resolution from the NVIDIA GameWorks: Materials & Textures toolset and Topaz AI...
A team of researchers at NVIDIA have developed a GPU-accelerated reinforcement learning simulator using just one NVIDIA Tesla V100 GPU and a CPU core. The research team was able to train the AI to complete human-like tasks such as running in less than 20 minutes. The simulator can support...
The police force in Spain is using a tool with over 80% accuracy that can identify false insurance claims based on the description of the perpetrator, types of items listed, finer details of the incident and more. The Veripol software uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to...
Coreteks on YouTube has released a video where he discusses Moore's Law and how it pertains to AMD and NVIDIA. He touches on how NVIDIA will stay ahead of AMD by convincing developers to use features such as real-time ray tracing, upscaling, and DLSS. Then he discusses how NVIDIA could pioneer...
Doctors in China have started using artificial intelligence (A.I.) as a tool to recognize brain activity in coma patients. Patients that score low on the coma recovery scale, are eligible for disconnection from life support, if the family chooses to do so. In a new study, patients in this...
McKinsey Global Institute has released a new study that compares the potential impact of artificial intelligence (A.I.) to the invention of the steam engine in driving economic growth for the countries that are first to establish themselves as leaders in the field. It is estimated that A.I...
Former professional and celebrity Dota 2 human players were pitted against OpenAI FIVE bots in a best of three match. The OpenAI FIVE bots were trained utilizing machine learning where they taught themselves to play while constrained by the rules of the game. The hero pool for the match was...
A team of MIT researchers have created a new AI, one that happens to be a psychopath. Researchers set out to prove that the data that is used to teach a machine learning algorithm can significantly influence its behavior. Norman was trained to perform image captioning, however instead of...
Recent research published in the journal Science has concluded that AI and machine learning programs may need an AI stereotype catcher, after showing that various AI systems relatively new language abilities may become an instrument of unintentional discrimination based on gender, race, age and...
