Elon Musk fathered twins with one of his executives last year – report

The Guardian

Elon Musk fathered two children in 2021 with Shivon Zilis, a top executive at his artificial intelligence company Neuralink, new court documents show. The world's wealthiest man now has nine known children, including five children with his first wife, Justine Musk, and two with the singer Claire Boucher, known professionally as Grimes. Court documents obtained by Insider and published on Wednesday showed that Elon Musk and Zilis filed a petition to change their twin babies' names to "have their father's last name and contain their mother's last name as part of their middle name". The petition was filed in Austin, Texas, where the babies were born, and was approved by the judge. Zilis reportedly gave birth in November 2021, weeks before Musk and Boucher had their second child via a surrogate.

As CERN's Large Hadron Collider revs up for Run 3, will it unravel the mystery of dark matter?

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Scientists at CERN are slamming protons together at an unprecedented energy level in order to unlock our world's most enduring mysteries - including dark matter, which we know little about despite it accounting for 26.8 percent of all mass and energy. The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which restarted for its third run after undergoing extensive upgrades, shattered energy records when it was turned back on today - enabling physicists to further study the Higgs Boson and what this particle's decay can reveal about the rest of the universe. By colliding proton beams together at 13.6 teraelectronvolts, the LHC broke a record; to give a sense of the power being unleashed at the particle collider located 300 feet underground, one tera electron volt is equivalent to 1,000,000,000,000 electron volts. CERN physicist Katharine Leney, pictured above, works at the ATLAS Experiment and is an assistant research professor at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. 'We think [dark matter] has mass but we don't know anything about it,' CERN physicist Katharine Leney, who works on the ATLAS Experiment and is a research assistant professor at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, told Daily Mail in an interview.


Meta open sources three new AI-driven acoustic models for better sound in the metaverse

#artificialintelligence

Meta AI has partnered with the University of Texas to open source three new models based on audio-visual perception that can help improve AR/VR experiences. The release is another step toward the direction Meta has taken to shift to a virtual universe. The first model, the Visual Acoustic Matching model or AViTAR, can help transform the acoustics in audio clips and make them sound like the target space in a specific image. For instance, an audio clip that sounded like it was recorded in an empty space could be matched with the image of a crowded restaurant and result in audio that sounded like it was in the restaurant. The second model, called Visually-Informed Dereverberation or VIDA, as the name suggests, performs the opposite function.


Behind the scenes of Waymo's worst automated truck crash – TechCrunch - Channel969

#artificialintelligence

Probably the most critical crash thus far involving a self-driving truck may need resulted in solely average accidents, but it surely uncovered how unprepared native authorities and legislation enforcement are to take care of the brand new expertise. On Might 5, a Class 8 Waymo By way of truck working in autonomous mode with a human security operator behind the wheel was hauling a trailer northbound on Interstate 45 towards Dallas, Texas. At 3:11 p.m., simply outdoors Ennis, the modified Peterbilt was touring within the far proper lane when a passing truck and trailer combo entered its lane. The motive force of the Waymo By way of truck informed police that the opposite semi truck continued to maneuver into the lane, forcing Waymo's truck and trailer off the roadway. She was later taken to a hospital for accidents that Waymo described in its report back to the Nationwide Freeway Visitors Security Administration as "average."


Aurora's Autonomous Tests in Texas Keep Rolling

#artificialintelligence

After lumbering through a gravel parking lot like a big blue bull, one of Aurora Innovation Inc.'s self-driving truck prototypes took a wide right turn onto a frontage road near Dallas. The steering wheel spun through the half-clasped hands of its human operator, whose touch may not be needed much longer. Fittingly for Texas, these Peterbilts are adorned with a sensor display above the windshield that looks much like a set of longhorns. This was the beginning of a 28-mile jaunt up and down Interstate 45 toward Houston in a truck with a computer for a brain, and cameras, radar and lidar sensors for eyes, capturing objects more than 437 yards out in all directions. The stakes for test drives like this one are incredibly high for the future of freight.


For the Record: What Do State IT Leaders Think About Emerging Tech?

GT caught up with state technology leaders at the recent National Association of State Chief Information Officers Midyear conference. Here's what they had to say about artificial intelligence, chatbots, blockchain and other headline-grabbing technologies. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Amanda Crawford, Texas: We use AI today. We certainly use robotic process automation in a variety of applications and projects across the state. One of the exciting areas for us is using AI for security.


Introducing AI-driven acoustic synthesis for AR and VR

#artificialintelligence

Whether it's mingling at a party in the metaverse or watching a home movie in your living room while wearing augmented reality (AR) glasses, acoustics play a role in how these moments will be experienced. We are building for mixed reality and virtual reality experiences like these, and we believe AI will be core to delivering sound quality that realistically matches the settings people are immersed in. Today, Meta AI researchers, in collaboration with an audio specialist from Meta's Reality Labs and researchers from the University of Texas at Austin, are open-sourcing three new models for audio-visual understanding of human speech and sounds in video that are designed to push us toward this reality at a faster rate. We need AI models that understand a person's physical surroundings based on both how they look and how things sound. For example, there's a big difference between how a concert would sound in a large venue versus in your living room.


Top Guinness world records in AI

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is growing at record-breaking speed, literally. Thanks to exponential development, AI has made its way to the Guinness book of world records. Below is a list of records in the AI domain. What started as a simple Bot Camp program became a world record for the largest artificial intelligence programming lesson. Capital One Services LLC hosted this camp as part of its Future Edge DFW initiative in Dallas, Texas, USA, on April 17 2019.
