The Biggest AI Trends In The Next 10 Years

Posted by in categories: business, internet, robotics/AI

Although I like to write about future predictions for the world of technology and business, I’m usually focused on what’s coming up in the next five years.


But it’s also worth taking a longer view. I believe that in 10 years’ time, the AI that’s a part of everyday life will be as far evolved from today’s AI as today’s internet is from the internet of the early days.

In his excellent book The Coming Wave, Mustafa Suleyman notes that every wave of technology-driven change – from the combustion engine to the internet – has revolutionized society in a shorter time span than the previous wave. So, I don’t think we’ll have to wait 30 or even 20 years until AI is utterly engrained in all aspects of life.

Amazon develops world’s largest text-to-speech model with ‘emergent’ qualities

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

The new model is called Big Adaptive Streamable TTS with Emergent abilities — BASE TTS.


In what is being called the largest text-to-speech model ever developed, researchers at Amazon AGI have made waves after creating the Big Adaptive Streamable TTS with Emergent abilities (BASE TTS).

Text-to-Speech (TTS) models are used in the development of voice assistants for smart devices and are employed to convert written text into spoken words, allowing voice assistants to communicate with users in a natural and human-like manner.

Scientist shows Focused Ultrasound can Reach Deep into the Brain to Relieve Pain

Posted by in category: neuroscience

Research reveals potential of using low-intensity focused ultrasound for pain management. Scientists have found soundwaves from low-intensity focused ultrasound aimed at a place deep in the brain called the insula can reduce both the perception of pain and other effects of pain, such as heart rate changes.

You feel a pain, so you pop a couple of ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the pain is severe or chronic, you might be prescribed something stronger — an opioid pain killer that can be addictive under some circumstances.

But what if you could ease pain by non-invasively manipulating a spot inside your brain where pain is registered?

Gas on the run — ALMA spots the Shadow of a Molecular Outflow from a Quasar when the Universe was less than one billion years old

Posted by in category: cosmology

Theoretical predictions have been confirmed with the discovery of an outflow of molecular gas from a quasar when the Universe was less than a billion years old.

A quasar is a compact region powered by a supermassive black hole located in the center of a massive galaxy.

They are extremely luminous, with a point-like appearance similar to stars, and are extremely distant from Earth.
