AI makes it easier for more people – beyond Hollywood special effects departments – to create fake new media. But AI will be able to help in its detection too … though not necessarily in ways that one might assume.
Such are the capabilities of AI to help improve the traditional ways of creating manipulated media that there is the potential to disrupt sectors of commerce – as well as presenting a challenge to news organisations and publishers.
No human carer could be available 24/7; robots on the other hand are not confined to shifts and rotas.
VR is still in its early days and its impact on human body and mind is yet to be thoroughly assessed. However, various sources point out that immersive reality and pharmaceutical products may have a thing in common – side effects.
No universal therapeutic tool is possible because no two medical conditions are the same. For instance, simple 3D images are required for dementia sufferers whose fading memory struggles with the complexity of the real world, while advanced and engaging virtual worlds must be created to distract cancer patients from the painful procedures they have to endure. VR for young children is a whole different story where a fairy-tale, cartoon-like approach is vital.
Software developers and medics around the world are working to prove that Virtual Reality (VR) powers stretch far beyond gaming and entertainment and have the potential to aid thousands suffering from cancer, anxiety, personality disorders, physical or psychological...
Smart clothes are where style and science meet, giving garments a whole host of innovative applications, such as charging depots for personal electronic gadgets, fitness trackers for capturing biometric data and colour-changing fashionable assets that go with everything.
Today’s vehicles are evolving fast, adopting more and more autonomous features on their way towards fully fledged self-driving status. Cities can’t afford to fall behind in their effort to remain fit for the autonomous vehicles of the near future.
Should AI be used solely to ease navigation through big data and augment human capabilities, or should it be allowed a more independent role in intelligent decision-making?
spotting a photograph or video where part of the image has been manipulated. Such a challenge faces news organisations on a regular basis: sensitivity over “fake news” means responsible publishers are on heightened alert to potential manipulation.
Predictive analytics, based on big data, is becoming an integral part of developing and delivering successful strategies in sport.
Network slicing, a key feature of 5G, lets operators automatically create separate, virtual end-to-end networks over the same physical infrastructure.
Today’s industrial technology settings have more interfaces than ever before, making industrial systems some of the most attractive targets for malware and ransomware attacks.
Financial incentives are available to encourage EV drivers with access to off-street parking to install home-charging units. Local councils have access to funding to install on-street EV chargers. The former has been successful, the latter has so far failed.
