Can GitHub Copilot Crack a Facebook Coding Interview?


Github Copilot is a new product created by OpenAI as "Your AI Pair Programmer". It is a plugin that you install in VSCode and it is simple to use and install. I've tested it through the past week and wanted to test it to see how powerful it is, so I went through 3 coding questions on the web that are a set of prepared interview coding questions with it to see how it would perform. How does GitHub Copilot work? Copilot is powered by a deep neural network language model called Codex. Codex is a fine-tuned GPT model trained on top of Github code.

Understanding the Role of Artificial Intelligence in the SPAC Bubble


The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is poised to put a damper on Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) IPOs and mergers: it deepened its investigation into potential conflicts of interest in SPAC underwriting processes, and brought charges against prominent SPACs. Find below an analytical digest of the AI SPAC's state of affairs. A special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) is a company with no commercial operations that is formed strictly to raise capital through an IPO for the purpose of acquiring an existing company. IPO investors have no idea what company they ultimately will be investing in.) SPACs seek underwriters and institutional investors before offering shares to the public.

Machine-learning improves the prediction of stroke recovery


When blood flow to the brain is somehow reduced or restricted, a person can suffer a stroke. Stroke is fairly common; in Europe alone, there are over 1.5 million new cases each year. Some strokes can be lethal, and when they're not, they often result in serious damage to the victim's ability to move. In fact, stroke is one of the major causes of long-term disability today. Recovery can be a long and arduous road.

Artificial intelligence 'transformative' for the future of ag


Artificial intelligence is not the scary, half-human half-robot movie character some might think it is, says Precision AI founder Daniel McCann. "AI is just a data processing system that points out patterns in huge volumes of data and that's it," he said during a presentation at the virtual Canada's Farm Show. For agriculture, it represents the future. McCann said he believes within the next 15 years common pieces of farm equipment, such as the broadcast sprayer, will become like a BlackBerry -- still around, not too common and not too efficient. But he said AI in agriculture is at an interim step along the way to that.

#IROS2020 Real Roboticist focus series #1: Davide Scaramuzza (Drones & Magic)


Are you curious about the people behind the robots? The series'Real Roboticist', produced by the 2020 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), shows the people at the forefront of robotics research from a more personal perspective. How did they become roboticists? What made them proud and what challenges did they face? What advice would they give to their younger self?

US, UK and Israel blame Iran for attack on Israeli-managed tanker

FOX News

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) – The United States has joined the United Kingdom and Israel in accusing Iran of carrying out a deadly drone strike that killed two aboard a tanker off Oman. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken made the announcement in a statement Sunday. Blinken said: "Upon review of the available information, we are confident that Iran conducted this attack, which killed two innocent people, using one-way explosive (drones), a lethal capability it is increasingly employing throughout the region." He added that there was "no justification for this attack, which follows a pattern of attacks and other belligerent behavior."

Artificial intelligence can now be recognised as an inventor after historic Australian court decision


The AI machine called DABUS is an "artificial neural system" and its designs have set off a string of debates and court battles across the globe.

AI and financial processes: Balancing risk and reward


All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Of all the enterprise functions influenced by AI these days, perhaps none is more consequential than AI and financial processes. People don't like when other people fiddle with their money, let alone an emotionless robot. But as it usually goes with first impressions, AI is winning converts in monetary circles, in no small part due to its ability to drive out inefficiencies and capitalize on hidden opportunities – basically creating more wealth out of existing wealth. One of the ways it does this is to reduce the cost of accuracy, says Sanjay Vyas, CTO of Planful, a developer of cloud-based financial planning platforms.

Tech 101: The Difference Between Data Science & Artificial Intelligence


Data science and artificial intelligence are two technologies that are transforming the world. While artificial intelligence powers data science operations, data science is not completely dependent on AI. Data Science is leading the fourth industrial revolution. This era saw massive amounts of data being generated by people on a daily basis and data science provides a way for businesses to capitalize on this available data. Our society now has become so data-driven that every major decision is a data-backed calculative move.

DeepMind's AI for protein structure is coming to the masses

On 15 July, the London-based company DeepMind released an open-source version of its deep-learning neural network AlphaFold 2 and described its approach in a paper in Nature1. The network dominated a protein-structure prediction competition last year. Meanwhile, an academic team has developed its own protein-prediction tool inspired by AlphaFold 2, which is already gaining popularity with scientists. That system, called RoseTTaFold, performs nearly as well as AlphaFold 2, and is described in a Science paper also published on 15 July2.
