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...
Steve Buscemi dropped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where he was shown his deepfake with Jennifer Lawrence. He expresses feelings of sadness that someone took the time to create it, but then he and Colbert mull over the question, "Will live actors be needed in the entertainment industry...
An enterprising modder managed to upscale Morrowind's textures with deep learning algorithms last year, and today, PC Gamer spotted a mod that does the same thing in Final Fantasy 7. Like the Morrowind mod, this particular modder is running ESRGAN to upscale the game's textures and backgrounds...
Lambda Labs ran a RTX 2080 TI and the Turing Titan through a set of Tensorflow benchmarks, and compared them to Pascal and Volta-based cards. On average, the RTX cards are on par with the pricey Titan V and Volta-based Tesla V100, but are significantly faster than the 1080 TI and the Pascal...
The Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick is a development kit for Deep Learning. It can be used to design, develop, and prototype smart edge devices like the image classifier shown in the video below. Other uses would be autonomous drones, smart security cameras, industrial machine vision...
A researcher has reportedly emulated thousands of gameboys, each running hundreds of times faster than the original console, in an effort to train an AI. Kamil Rocki was apparently inspired by Alphabet's progress in Google's DeepMind project, and set out to see how he could emulate the Intel...
Researchers from MIT have developed a technique that can reconstruct images of objects snapped in near total darkness. The scientists trained a deep neural network on "more than 10,000 transparent glass-like etchings, based on extremely grainy images of those patterns." They claim those grainy...
Deep learning is big business these days, and Nvidia is currently a major leader in the field. But more and more companies are showing off alternatives to GPU-like architectures for AI processing. IBM unveiled a concept for a tile-based neural net system earlier this month, and according to a...
Building on previous research, Nvidia taught a robot to pick up objects using a virtual environment. While similar commercial neural nets are usually trained on real world data, Nvidia developed an Unreal Engine plugin to train the deep learning algorithm in a game-like virtual space. Using a...
Gadi Singer is the vice president and general manager of the Artificial Intelligence Products Group at Intel. In an interview with Ed Sperling of Semiconductor Engineering, he discusses how Intel is evolving to meet the ever changing requirements for deep learning. He believes that Xeon...
HotHardware has conducted an interview with Nvidia Director of Technical Marketing, Tom Petersen where they discuss various topics such as how Turing compares to Pascal. Tom Petersen had this to say.
"The fact is that Turing, just a just the traditional Turing where you think about shaders...

real-time ray tracing
Nvidia has released a list of games that support the real-time ray tracing and Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS) found on their new GeForce RTX lineup of video cards. Real-time ray tracing allows for "objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and...
The good folks at AMD have published a page on Machine Learning and Deep Learning. It's a good read because it breaks down what many call AI and does it in an easily understood fashion. I've never really dug too deeply into the differences between ML and DL so this write-up was an eye-opener for...
NVIDIA is showing off how it is using its deep learning to teach robots how to complete tasks by simply "showing" the robot how it is done. This will certainly be a boon in industry where repetitive tasks need to be accomplished. Once you get done teaching the robot how to do the job, it is...
We love Doom, every old school gamer loves Doom, and now researchers from Italy's Politecnico of Milano have used two deep-learning neural networks to create an infinite number of new levels for the 1993 shooter. Digital Trends is reporting that the neural networks were shown 1,000 existing Doom...
GE healthcare has announced they will be using Nvidia AI in over 500,000 medical devices around the world. The tech is going to improve the outcome of patients with liver legions and other similar lesions because it will enable doctors to detect them more quickly. The uses for AI in the...
Drive.ai, another start-up in the burgeoning tech sector of autonomous self-driving cars raised an additional $50 million in funding for R&D following $12 million financed last year. The company with its group of about 70 computer scientists and engineers make kits for retrofitting cars...
We hear the term "deep learning" thrown around a lot now days, and Sandeep Raut over at the site readwrite, gives us a quick and dirty lesson as to what deep learning is. While he touches on it in an non-esoteric way, if you are in the dark he gives you a idea of why going deep really matters...
