Meet the Reaper, a $64M death-dealing assassination drone straight out of a science-fiction nightmare. Designated the MQ-9 Reaper multi-purpose drone, it’s widely considered the deadliest unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the sky. And for good reason. On 3 January 2020, US President Donald Trump authorized the military’s use of an MQ-9 in the assassination of Iranian…
Here’s what AI experts think will happen in 2020

Here’s what AI experts think will happen in 2020

It’s been another great year for robots. We didn’t quite figure out how to imbue them with human-level intelligence, but we gave it the old college try and came up with GPT-2 (the text generator so scary it gives Freddy Krueger nightmares) and the AI magic responsible for these adorable robo-cheetahs: But it’s time to…
2010 – 2019: The rise of deep learning

2010 – 2019: The rise of deep learning

No other technology was more important over the past decade than artificial intelligence. Stanford’s Andrew Ng called it the new electricity, and both Microsoft and Google changed their business strategies to become “AI-first” companies. In the next decade, all technology will be considered “AI technology.” And we can thank deep learning for that. Deep learning…

The latest industrial robots look like petting zoo versions of the big machines found in many modern factories – small, cute, and you can play with them. But don’t be deceived by their cuddly appearance. They have the potential to change the way humans work with machines and disrupt the existing market for industrial robots.…

2019 is almost over and that means it’s time to check in on Tesla’s progress towards fielding a million robo-taxis. You see, Elon Musk told the world he’d have a million fully autonomous robotaxis by the end of 2020, and we wanted to see how many he’s managed to produce so far. Let’s count together.…
Humans best AI in first-ever Drone Racing League showdown

Humans best AI in first-ever Drone Racing League showdown

The Drone Racing League recently held its first Human VS AI match, pitting a drone helmed by AI developed by Delft University of Technology’s MavLab against one flown by human pilot Gabriel Kocher. Despite early race hype, MavLab’s machine took a big “L” as Kocher flew away with the victory, running the course in half the time…

Nvidia built an AI that creates 3D models from 2D images

What if developing a 3D gaming world were as easy as snapping pics with your phone? Nvidia researchers recently developed an AI system capable of predicting a complete 3D model from any 2D image. Called “DIB-R,” the AI takes a picture of any 2D object – an image of a bird, for example – and predicts…
