New technique improves AI ability to map 3D space with 2D cameras

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Researchers have developed a technique that allows artificial intelligence (AI) programs to better map three-dimensional spaces using two-dimensional images captured by multiple cameras. Because the technique works effectively with limited computational resources, it holds promise for improving the navigation of autonomous vehicles.

Aging and cancer

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Exhibit apparent links that we will examine in this review. The null hypothesis that aging and cancer coincide because both are driven by time, irrespective of the precise causes, can be confronted with the idea that aging and cancer share common mechanistic grounds that are referred to as ‘hallmarks’. Indeed, several hallmarks of aging also contribute to carcinogenesis and tumor progression, but some of the molecular and cellular characteristics of aging may also reduce the probability of developing lethal cancer, perhaps explaining why very old age ( 90 years) is accompanied by a reduced incidence of neoplastic diseases. We will also discuss the possibility that the aging process itself causes cancer, meaning that the time-dependent degradation of cellular and supracellular functions that accompanies aging produces cancer as a byproduct or ‘age-associated disease’

Information-hiding camera: Optical technology conceals data in plain sight

Posted by in categories: innovation, security

Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have developed an innovative information-hiding camera to optically transform and conceal input images into ordinary-looking patterns, providing a powerful solution for visual information security. The work is published in the journal Science Advances.

New snake species with “great aggression” revealed by scientists

Posted by in categories: habitats, health, robotics/AI

The discovery process involved extensive fieldwork and the use of advanced technology. Researchers utilized high-resolution aerial photographs and an optimized artificial intelligence model to accurately map the habitat and health of trees across the region, indirectly leading to the identification of the new viper species. This method allowed the researchers to cover a vast area with unprecedented precision, enhancing their understanding of the ecosystem and its inhabitants.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the Ovophis jenkinsi is its behavior. Unlike many snakes that prefer to flee when threatened, this viper exhibits aggressive defensive tactics.

“It is usually slow-moving but shows great aggression when disturbed,” the researchers wrote. “When threatened, these snakes inflate their bodies to make themselves appear larger and strike quickly.”

Tesla shareholders: What Elon Musk is doing is like CEO of Coca-Cola CEO starting a rival soda company and sending ingredients to it

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, robotics/AI

The lawsuit is one of the most direct challenges to Musk’s decision to start xAI, and it comes on the heels of his threat to develop AI outside of Tesla unless he is awarded more voting control over the company.

The suit was also filed just a few hours before Tesla is scheduled to host its annual…

Tesla shareholders are suing CEO Elon Musk and the company’s board over the creation of xAI, a new artificial intelligence company, as reported by TechCrunch.

Flow claims it can 100x any CPU’s power with its companion chip and some elbow grease

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

A Finnish startup called Flow Computing is making one of the wildest claims ever heard in silicon engineering: by adding its proprietary companion chip, any CPU can instantly double its performance, increasing to as much as 100x with software tweaks.

If it works, it could help the industry keep up with the insatiable compute demand of AI makers.

Flow is a spinout of VTT, a Finland state-backed research organization that’s a bit like a national lab. The chip technology it’s commercializing, which it has branded the Parallel Processing Unit, is the result of research performed at that lab (though VTT is an investor, the IP is owned by Flow).

‘Dyson spheres’ were theorized as a way to detect alien life. Scientists say they’ve found potential evidence

Posted by in categories: alien life, solar power, sustainability

O.o!!!! Woah even the news is talking about Dyson spheres now o.o

By Jacopo Prisco, CNN

(CNN) — What would be the ultimate solution to the energy problems of an advanced civilization? Renowned British American physicist Freeman Dyson theorized it would be a shell made up of mirrors or solar panels that completely surrounds a star — harnessing all the energy it produces.
