This drone can soar through the skies and swim like a fish underwater

Posted by in categories: drones, military

With its state-of-the-art design, it provides endless possibilities for exploration and adventure!

A research team at the Chinese University in Hong Kong recently demonstrated that, despite giving off an aura of extraterrestrial technology to onlookers, it’s not out-of-this-world for objects to traverse between water and air in the blink of an eye.

Mirs-X-a revolutionary new quadcopter prototype.

Turkey-Syria earthquake is one of the deadliest in years, here’s why

Posted by in category: futurism

The death toll now stands at over 5,000.

The magnitude 7.8 earthquake that rocked Turkey and Syria on Monday is likely to go down as one of the deadliest this decade, according to a report from Reuters.

The epicenter of the earthquake is located 16 miles (26 km) east of the Turkish city of Nurdagi, 11 miles (18 km) below the Earth’s surface on the East Anatolian Fault.

AI Battle Royale Erupts With Google Bard Versus Microsoft OpenAI ChatGPT, Stoking AI Ethics And AI Law Concerns

Posted by in categories: business, ethics, law, robotics/AI

Get your helmet on and be ready for the fallout from an emerging battle royale in AI. Here’s the deal. In one corner stands Microsoft with their business partner OpenAI and ChatGPT. Leering anxiously in the other corner is Google, which has announced that they will be making available a similar type of AI, based on their long-standing insider AI app known as Lambda sounds kind of techie, which is a stark contrast to “ChatGPT” (seems kind of light and airy). Google, perhaps realizing that a name embellishment was needed, has opted to put forth its variant of Lambda and anointed it with a new name “Bard”.

I’ll say more about Bard in a moment, hang in there.


Google has announced they will be releasing a generative AI app called Bard, based on their Lambda AI app. Microsoft is going to incorporate OpenAI ChatGPT into Bing. The AI wars are getting avidly underway. Here’s the scoop.

The Next Generation Of Large Language Models

Posted by in categories: economics, robotics/AI

In case you haven’t heard, artificial intelligence is the hot new thing. Generative AI seems to be on the lips of every venture capitalist, entrepreneur, Fortune 500 CEO and journalist these days, from Silicon Valley to Davos.

To those who started paying real attention to AI in 2022, it may seem that technologies like ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion came out of nowhere to take the world by storm. They didn’t.


Since at least the release of GPT-2 in 2019, it has been clear to those working in the field that generative language models were poised to unleash vast economic and societal transformation. Similarly, while text-to-image models only captured the public’s attention last summer, the technology’s ascendance has appeared inevitable since OpenAI released the original DALL-E in January 2021. (We wrote an article making this argument days after the release of the original DALL-E.)

How ChatGPT, Bard And AI Rivals Are Shaping Layoffs And Hiring

Posted by in categories: economics, employment, robotics/AI

In every downturn, we tend to measure the pain by counting layoffs. (Dell is the latest, announcing it will cut 6,650 jobs or 5% of its workforce.) According to Layoffs.fyi, a smart if incomplete tracker of job cuts, tech companies laid off almost 95,000 workers in the first five weeks of this year, which is already about 60% of the layoffs it reported for all of 2022.

While job cuts are normal, there’s something different about this economic dip. To start, as Jena McGregor reports, the advent of remote work has cemented the digital pink slip.

Test Preparation Enters The Age Of Artificial Intelligence

Posted by in categories: business, robotics/AI

In the ever-evolving landscape of test preparation, a new player has sprouted on the scene – artificial intelligence.

At the forefront of this movement is a Korean start-up, Riiid, founded by YJ Jang, a graduate of the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. Riiid has already made a name for itself in the Asian test-prep market for the TOEIC, a measure of English proficiency in the business world. Now, the company has set its sights on the American market with an SAT and ACT prep system called R.Test.

A.I. technology, with its mimicry of the networks of neurons in the human brain, has the potential to revolutionize the way educators approach their craft.

Startup MindsDB Raises $16.5 Million To Power The AI Race In The Workplace

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Though Bill Gates recently declared the current moment in technology as important as the advent of the PC, storied Silicon Valley firm Benchmark is taking a relatively cautious view of AI’s gold rush for now. A “big majority” of startups pitching to partner Chetan Puttagunta claim to be working on machine learning, but, he told Forbes.


Benchmark is leading the investment with a bet that MindsDB can replace the need to hire hundreds of machine learning engineers.
