Latest developments surrounding Google, Microsoft, and Facebook point toward massive plans of enhancing AI operations. While these have their benefits, will this eventually begin the rise of AI overlords?
Can you "read" what she's saying? Google DeepMind's newest AI endeavor can. A new project by DeepMind and the University of Oxford has created a lip-reading system that can send the best professionals with a run for their money.
Scientists at IBM have devised a way to make carbon nanotubes "build" themselves in an effort to replace silicon chips. This technology can lead to faster-than-silicon computer chips and bendable electronics.
It appears there is more to paint than aesthetics. Researchers have developed what appears to be photovoltaic paint, as in paint that absorbs heat and converts it to electricity. This can pave way to "paint-on solar cells" that can capture the sun's energy.
Canada is on its way to officially phase out its coal-fired power plants by 2030 in an effort to curb greenhouse gas emissions as prescribed in the Paris Agreement.
Microsoft will herald a global change in the realm of speech recognition. Its newest software appears to transcribe conversational speech as well as humans.
Representatives from 47 of what could be considered as some of the world's most "disadvantaged" nations are pledging to go full green and renewable energy by the year 2020.
A company aims to release "workplace" versions of its hallmark modular exoskeleton. The armor can reduce muscle force needed for hard labor by 2.5 times, with a medical version to be available in 2018.
Leading military and intelligence experts have revealed in a global conference just how governments may use social media as a tool for warfare, with alarming evidence of how they use the internet as "a new front in warfare."
The Luxembourg government has a new law that ensures that private operators working in space will have the right to the resources that they extract.
