With the physical world of retail becoming less accessible, the convenience of online shopping has made the former even less attractive and has driven consumers to expect on-demand delivery for almost everything (if not all) they need.

    Scientists figured out how to stop time using quantum algorithms
    Everyone’s always talking about traveling through time, but if you ask me the ultimate temporal vacation would be just to pause the clock for a bit. Who among us couldn’t use a five or six month break after 2020 before we commit to an entire new calendar year? It’s not you 2021; it’s us. Unfortunately, this isn’t an episode of Rick and Morty so we can’t stop time until we’re ready to move on. But maybe our computers can. A pair of studies about quantum

    Surveillance group exposes disturbing Huawei patent for AI-powered Uighur detection
    A Huawei patent that mentions AI-powered identification of Uighur people and other ethnic groups has been discovered. The patent was exposed by video surveillance research group IPVM, the same organization that had previously spotted references to an AI “Uighur alarm” on Huawei‘s website, as well as evidence that Alibaba had offered “Uighur-detection-as-a-service.” IPVM also recently found 12 government projects from the last few years that mandate U

    Google’s new trillion-parameter AI language model is almost 6 times bigger than GPT-3
    A trio of researchers from the Google Brain team recently unveiled the next big thing in AI language models: a massive one trillion-parameter transformer system. The next biggest model out there, as far as we’re aware, is OpenAI’s GPT-3, which uses a measly 175 billion parameters. Background: Language models are capable of performing a variety of functions but perhaps the most popular is the generation of novel text. For example, you can go here and talk to a “philosopher AI&r

    Data science needs you. No really. This 12-course training package can help get you there
    TLDR: With training in Python, Hadoop, Apache, MongoDB, Excel, and even machine learning, the 2021 All-in-One Data Scientist Mega Bundle can turn you into a true data analyst. Leave it to data scientists to find data that tells us something meaningful about data science. A new study determined that without diversity in the ranks of data science engineers, the data itself can often fall prey to bias and imbalanced reporting. That’s a science-based way of letting you know that if you’
  • We ranked the best (and worst) EV pedestrian warning noises

    We ranked the best (and worst) EV pedestrian warning noises
    Electric vehicles are fast and stealthy. With no combustion engine or exhaust noise, they have the ability to sneak up on pedestrians without much of a warning. This is bad enough for the average road user, but for the visually impaired, it represents an even bigger danger. Thankfully, legislation that requires EVs to make an audible pedestrian warning has been passed in a number of important EV markets, like the US, and Europe. The sound a car makes can embody and amplify what type of car it i

According to analytics firm App Annie, Telegram’s monthly active users increased by 110%  — in a 600 million internet user market —and made it the fastest growing social app in the country. WhatsApp was second in the growth list, followed by Instagram and short video apps MX Takatak and Moj. Both thes
  • Oh, great — Uber and Lyft are actually increasing car ownership in US cities

    Oh, great — Uber and Lyft are actually increasing car ownership in US cities
    Ride hailing apps like Uber and Lyft were created with a Silicon Valley mindset to “disrupt,” and change how we travel, supposedly for the better. The platforms were supposed to provide alternatives to private car travel and ultimately decrease car ownership. However, a recent study suggests that this isn’t entirely the case and ride hailing apps actually increase car ownership, especially in cities that are already dependent on cars. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon Universit

    Thank god, 2021 is shorter than 2020 by 1 second — here’s why
    The Earth is spinning faster than it has at any time in the last 50 years, careful study of our planet reveals. Each of the 28 shortest days ever measured came in 2020. It is possible this may require shortening the standard time on which much of our technological systems are based. “The Earth is spinning faster now than at any time in the last 50 years. It’s quite possible that a negative leap second will be needed if the Earth’s rotation rate increases further, but it’

    Tesla finally has an office in India — but don’t expect its cars for a while

However, that network ran into all sorts of trouble because of content that can potentially incite violence. Amazon Web Services booted it off its cloud infrastructure, and Apple and Google removed the app from the App Store. Now that the social network and its CEO are offline for now, Tr

    These are exciting times for the artificial intelligence community. Interest in the field is growing at an accelerating pace, registration at academic and professional machine learning courses is soaring, attendance in AI conferences is at an all-time high, and AI algorithms have become a vital component of many applications we use every day. But as with any field going through the hype cycle, AI is surrounded by a saturation of information, much of which is misleading or of little va

    It’s a new year, but the same dreaded pandemic. We’ve been wearing masks for a long time now, so companies are trying to get creative and offer something unique by way of protective gear. I’ve seen some masks that play on style and some on function  — like this one with a Bluetooth headset. Last night, Razer showed off a new ‘smart mask’ called Project Hazel. The N95 mask has an active ventilation component for breathing fresh air. Plus, it&rsq
