Engadget

Six years after its initial release, Stardew Valley has sold more than 20 million copies. Creator Eric Barone shared news of the accomplishment in an update posted to the game's press site and an interview with PC Gamer. "The 20 million copies milestone is really amazing," he told the outlet. But what's even more impressive is the increasing pace of Stardew Valley's sales. It took four years for the game to sell its first 10 million copies.


This is what may happen when we merge the human brain and computers

#artificialintelligence

Why are we on the verge of creating a technology that will combine the computer with the human nervous system into a single complex? Can a computer system handle the flood of data from billions of living neurons? I will try to answer these questions in this article. In the previous article "Individual artificial intelligence: A new technology that will change our world", we talked about the fact that a new type of artificial intelligence will become a bioelectronic hybrid in which a living human brain and a computer will work together. Thus, a new type of AI will be born – individual artificial intelligence.

Do you find these levels helpful when it comes to knowing what an AV can do? What's the difference between driver support features and automated driving? Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) recognise that levels 0-2 are better defined as'driver support features.' Level 3 and above encompass what they would now refer to as'automated driving features.' a six degrees of automated driving: from zero automation to full automation.

How I became an ML hackathon Grandmaster

#artificialintelligence

HSBC's Akash Gupta has won over 45 machine learning hackathons to date. The MachineHack Grandmaster has come second thrice in a row and is currently ranked sixth on the platform. "I've always been fascinated by numbers and patterns. I got very curious about algorithms – how they are made, how they work, and what we can do with them– after I took Andrew Ng's machine learning course," said Akash Gupta. The data scientist spoke about his MachineHack journey in an exclusive interview with Analytics India Magazine.


ACM SIGAI Industry Award 2022 nominations

AIHub

The ACM SIGAI Industry Award for Excellence in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be given annually to individuals or teams who have transferred original academic research into AI applications in recent years in ways that demonstrate the power of AI techniques via a combination of the following features: originality of the research novelty and technical excellence of the approach; importance of AI techniques to the approach; and actual or predicted societal impact of the application. Awardees receive a plaque accompanied by a prize of $5,000, and will be recognized at the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence through an agreement with the IJCAI Board of Trustees. After decades of progress in the theory, research and development of AI, AI applications are increasingly moving into the commercial sector. A great deal of pioneering application-level work is being done by those transferring research results into industry--from startups to large corporations--and this is influencing commerce and the broad public in a wide variety of ways. This award complements the numerous academic, best-paper and related awards, in that it focuses on innovators of fielded AI applications.


Seadronix raises $5.8M, round led by SoftBank Ventures Asia – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

South Korean startup Seadronix wants to reduce the issue of marine accidents, 75% of which are caused by human error, according to a 2019 Allianz safety and shipping report. The company just secured a $5.8 million Series A extension to scale its AI-based ship berthing monitoring and navigation systems to help cargo ships navigate safely and assist port operators anchoring their vehicles at harbor. The fresh funds, led by SoftBank Ventures Asia, bring Seadronix's the total round up to $8.3 million. Seadronix will use the capital to grow its team beyond the current headcount of 30 employees and enter global markets, including Singapore and Europe, where its "smart ports" are located, Byeolteo Park, CEO and co-founder, said in an interview with TechCrunch. A smart port uses technologies including AI, big data, Internet of Things and 5G to provide more security and save energy by digitalizing the way huge ships enter docks and handle logistics at the ports.

Lauren is the first Black woman to graduate from The University of Kansas' Aerospace Engineering Department and the first Black woman to win the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) international design competition. KeepWOL is a game-centric talent development platform that combines live multiplayer games, AI technology, and end-to-end learning integration to deeply understand how employees think and what influences their decisions. Could you discuss how you chose engineering as a career path, and even pursued a bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering, all while realizing that it was not the best match for you? I wouldn't say that engineering wasn't a perfect match for me. I have an uncanny ability to visualize processes and objects before they are even prototyped or in motion.


The nuanced debate over AI ethics

#artificialintelligence

"You won't see many people with my background talking about ethics," said Beena Ammanath, executive director of the Global Deloitte AI Institute and head of Trustworthy AI and Ethical Tech at the global consulting company. A computer scientist who worked as a database and SQL developer and held data science- and AI-related technology roles at Bank of America, GE and Hewlett Packard before joining Deloitte in 2019, Ammanath wasn't always gung-ho to talk AI ethics. Then she decided to write a book about it. "There has arguably never been a more exciting time in AI," she wrote in her book "Trustworthy AI." "Alongside the arrival of so much promise and potential, however, the attention placed on AI ethics has been relatively slight." Protocol spoke with Ammanath about why ethical AI practices should be part of every employee's training, the limitations of providing internal guidance inside a sprawling consultancy and why she finally gave in and joined the AI ethics conversation.
