GPT Announces New Developments in Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) at HSA ... - Artificial Intelligence Online


IP Cores Designed for HSA Historically GPT has developed IP specifically for the China market. The company recently announced a range of new IP licensing offerings along with an enhanced geographical licensing program. With the company-wide adoption of HSA standards, GPT now licenses IP worldwide. All GPT processors include HSA support and the company is now offering world-class HSA-enabled processors to its customers. The HSA enabled IP core which is sampling now in silicon is a first implementation of GPT's 3-in-1 Unity architecture designed for multidimensional signal processing including image and video processing.

Robot judges could soon be helping with court cases

The Independent - Tech

An AI judge has accurately predicted most verdicts of the European Court of Human Rights, and might soon be making important decisions about cases. Scientists built an artificially intelligence computer that was able to look at legal evidence as well as considering ethical questions to decide how a case should be decided. And it predicted those with 79 per cent accuracy, according to its creators. The algorithm looked at data sets made up 584 cases relating to torture and degrading treatment, fair trials and privacy. The computer was able to look through that information and make its own decision – which lined up with those made by Europe's most senior judges in almost every case.

The rise of robots -- AI is coming to a business near you


Consider your repetitive daily tasks. Do you, or your employees, follow a process to perform these? If so, then this job, or at least the repetitive part of it, will almost definitely be replaced by a robotic usurper. No industry will be unchanged from the "robot revolution". Disruption is already occurring in many of the commoditised functions of accounting and legal advice, for example.

Smart sex toy maker that collected vibrator usage habits without consent to pay customers $10,000 each

The Independent - Tech

A sex toy maker has agreed to pay customers up to $10,000 CAD each after allegations that it had collected data about its customers' We-Vibe vibrator usage habits without their consent. The smart sex toy, created by Ottawa-based Standard Innovation, allows users to control vibration intensity through an accompanying smartphone app. However, a demonstration at the Def Con hacking conference in August last year showed that the firm was secretly gathering potentially sensitive information about We-Vibe's users, including dates and times of use, temperature levels and changes in intensity. The giant human-like robot bears a striking resemblance to the military robots starring in the movie'Avatar' and is claimed as a world first by its creators from a South Korean robotic company Waseda University's saxophonist robot WAS-5, developed by professor Atsuo Takanishi and Kaptain Rock playing one string light saber guitar perform jam session A man looks at an exhibit entitled'Mimus' a giant industrial robot which has been reprogrammed to interact with humans during a photocall at the new Design Museum in South Kensington, London Electrification Guru Dr. Wolfgang Ziebart talks about the electric Jaguar I-PACE concept SUV before it was unveiled before the Los Angeles Auto Show in Los Angeles, California, U.S The Jaguar I-PACE Concept car is the start of a new era for Jaguar.
