Amazon founder Jeff Bezos's space launch company, Blue Origin, will put people in space by 2019.
Hiring is undergoing a profound revolution. Nearly all Fortune 500 companies now use some form of automation -- from robot avatars interviewing job candidates to computers weeding out potential employees by scanning keywords in resumes. And more and more companies are using artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to assess possible employees.
Quantum computing is one of the most exciting technologies there is, but its basis in quantum physics makes it a pain in the ass to understand and even harder to do anything with. A recent breakthrough in physics research, however, might change all of that and start a computing revolution.
Until now, if you wanted a fun, stylish, luxurious, long-range electric car, you had to buy a Tesla. Elon Musk's automaker was the first to produce battery-powered vehicles that could stay on the road for hundreds of miles without stopping to recharge.
A team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh developed a novel method for teaching AI to respond to queries in a more conversational manner: They paid people to talk to themselves. It turns out that paying one person to pretend to be two people is a cost-effective way of training an AI to recognize natural human language.
As part of its long-term planning, Chinese rocket officials have talked for some time about a super-heavy lift rocket that will enable a human lunar program. For this rocket, called the Long March 9, officials have generally cited the 2030 time frame for its maiden launch.
U.S. Air Force photo/Ilka Cole A U.S. Reaper drone shot down another with a missile, the Air Force revealed yesterday. The incident, which took place last year and involved an unmanned target drone, was the first case of a drone shooting down another another aircraft.
September 19, 2018 by Ariana Tantillo, US Department of Energy Nearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. These irreversible brain disorders slowly cause memory loss and destroy thinking skills, eventually to such an extent that self-care becomes very difficult or impossible.
Intuition is the link between perception and reality; the grey area where logic is incomplete without emotions. The possibilities of Artificial Intelligence developing logical element of intuition are green because of its detail-oriented observation of all inputs and the result of their implications.
Habana Labs, a startup that came out of "stealth mode" this week, announced a custom chip that is said to enable much higher machine learning inference performance compared to GPUs. According to the startup, its Goya chip is designed from scratch for deep learning inference, unlike GPUs or other types of chips that have been repurposed for this task.
By definition, HPC is always at the cutting edge of computing, driving innovations in processor, system, and software design that eventually find their way into more mainstream computing systems. This, in fact, is one of the key founding premises of The Next Platform.
Future-predicting robots are all the rage this year in machine learning circles, but today's deep learning techniques can only take the research so far. That's why some ambitious AI developers are turning to an already established prediction engine for inspiration: The human brain.
HALIFAX - Canada's environment minister opened a meeting of her G7 counterparts with a call for action on climate change, even as prominent environmentalist David Suzuki reportedly called for her resignation over Ottawa's support of fossil fuels.
Accenture research shows that as digital innovations reshape the nature of work, new approaches to learning and skillsets will be required for growth. Learn more.
