Neuromarketing for Dummies: How-To Guide with Examples


The field of neuromarketing is still in its infancy, but it's growing fast as the ability to track and monitor consumer brain activity becomes more widespread. While American companies have been pioneers in this field, many European businesses are just now starting to hop on board with neuromarketing research techniques. This article will serve as a quick guide for companies looking to implement neuromarketing principles and tactics into their marketing research endeavors. Neuromarketing is the study of human brain activity that is triggered by exposure to stimuli in marketing research. This could include exposing participants to products, websites, advertisements, or packaging in order to determine how each stimulus elicits a physical or emotional response.

What facial recognition and the racist pseudoscience of phrenology have in common


'Phrenology' has an old-fashioned ring to it. It sounds like it belongs in a history book, filed somewhere between bloodletting and velocipedes. We'd like to think that judging people's worth based on the size and shape of their skull is a practice that's well behind us. However, phrenology is once again rearing its lumpy head. In recent years, machine-learning algorithms have promised governments and private companies the power to glean all sorts of information from people's appearance.

When There Is Bias In AI--And What We Can Do


Artificial Intelligence is increasingly underlying the systems and processes that we interact with on a daily basis. While this has benefits such as improved efficiency, increased capacity, and the ability to institute more sophisticated applications, it can also be a double-edged sword. Code is unbiased, but the people who create it are not, and their unconscious biases can inform that code and everything that it interacts with.

How Artificial Intelligence Detects Faces?


You might've heard about face recognition and its different applications. A face recognition system can identify people in videos or static images to put it in simple terms. Many fields use the technology for surveillance and tracking people. Some countries are using face recognition systems more widely than others. But while you may hear about it more frequently now, the technology has been in existence for decades.

3D Imaging Shows How Shark Guts Work Like a Tesla Valve


In 1920, Serbian-born inventor Nikola Tesla designed and patented what he called a "valvular conduit": a pipe whose internal design ensures that fluid will flow in one preferred direction, with no need for moving parts, making it ideal for microfluidics applications, among other uses. According to a recent paper published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the Tesla valve also provides a useful model for how food moves through the digestive system of many species of shark. Based on new CT scans of shark intestines, scientists have concluded that the intestines are naturally occurring Tesla valves.

China built the world's largest facial recognition system. Now, it's getting camera-shy.

Washington Post - Technology News

But Beijing has become alarmed at the growing power of Big Tech -- including the risk that personal information of senior officials could leak overseas -- and has moved this year to rein in China's Internet giants. This included derailing the IPO plans of mobile payment titan Ant Group, launching a probe into Didi Chuxing, the Chinese equivalent of Uber, and a ban on the country's lucrative online, for-profit tutoring services for students.

AI Bringing New Insights to the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo


You may not be noticing it much on your television, smartphone or tablet screens, but the TV coverage of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (which of course are being held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic) are infused with big data and AI to an extent never before experienced in the history of the Olympic games. It's been 53 years since the Olympics officially adopted electronic time-keeping equipment to track racers in Olympic events. Omega's Magic Eye camera, which debuted in 1948, gave us the first of many "photo finishes" for track events, and was soon adopted in other events as well. Now the technology is cranking up a notch in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (which perhaps should have been called the 2021 games), and Omega is again behind much of it. For example, Omega, which is the official timekeeper for 35 Olympic sports, is using cameras equipped with computer vision capabilities to track the movement of beach volleyball players, as well as the ball in play.
