IBM Delivers Its Highest Quantum Volume to Date, Expanding


Today, IBM has unveiled a new milestone on its quantum computing road map, achieving the company's highest Quantum Volume to date. Combining a series of new software and hardware techniques to improve overall performance, IBM's has upgraded one of its newest 27-qubit client-deployed systems to achieve a Quantum Volume 64. The company has made a total of 28 quantum computers available over the last four years through IBM Quantum Experience. In order to achieve a Quantum Advantage, the point where certain information processing tasks can be performed more efficiently or cost effectively on a quantum computer, versus a classical one, it will require improved quantum circuits, the building blocks of quantum applications. Quantum Volume measures the length and complexity of circuits – the higher the Quantum Volume, the higher the potential for exploring solutions to real world problems across industry, government, and research.

A.I. Can Make Music, Screenplays, and Poetry. What About a Movie?


Let's say for the sake of argument you're stuck at home for a long time watching too much of the stuff we euphemistically call "streaming content," by which I mean movies and TV. Come up with your own reason -- anything from being one of Japan's pathologically introverted hikikomori to, say, hiding out from some sort of potentially lethal respiratory virus. In any case, you will at some point sour on all the available programming options and scroll glumly through all the familiar title selection menus until you give up. Tiger King is more of a punch line than a TV show at this point, and, sure, you could plumb the depths of history's most creative auteurs over on the Criterion Channel, but that sounds hard, and if you are like me, you consider reading the morning news emotional labor. But what if there were a movie streaming service with no downsides?

The "Ultimate" AI Textbook


In this section, we will talk about Artificial Intelligence, its history, applications, the different types of AI, and the programming languages that are used for AI. Note that I will not be talking about how to code AI but mainly focus on the various languages which support AI. No, don't close this tab!!! Ok fine, I'll start doing my job of explaining properly. "The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages." In simple words, AI is the science of making machines that can think. It's a technique of getting machines to work and behave like humans which accomplishes this task by creating machines and robots.

Q-CTRL and Advanced Navigation partner for quantum-based navigation systems


Quantum startup Q-CTRL has partnered with AI-based navigation hardware firm Advanced Navigation to further work on quantum-enabled sensing. The two Australian companies have announced their intentions to conduct joint technical development in support of both the civilian and defence markets, focusing on quantum-enhanced precision navigation and timing (PNT). According to the companies, quantum sensing is considered one of the most promising areas in the global research effort to leverage the exotic properties of quantum physics for real-world benefit. "It is expected to revolutionise PNT through an ability to detect very weak accelerations while maintaining accuracy over long times," they wrote. "Quantum-enabled PNT can therefore enable highly precise navigation in commercial and military applications where GPS is unavailable."

Developing Deep Learning API using Django


Again, this is one of the techniques (simplest one) for developing an app using the Django REST Framework on Windows system. Several of these files aren't even needed and hence, we can ignore those files. Django has a utility that will help us focus on coding than arranging directories for deployment . Now copy the localhost url (which should look like: and paste that to your browser. You should see something like below on a successful build.

This Week's Awesome Tech Stories From Around the Web (Through June 27)


Amazon Shakes Up the Race for Self-Driving--and Ride-Hailing Aarian Marshal Wired "Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi says his company wants to be the'Amazon for transportation.' Friday, Amazon made clear that it intends to be the Amazon for transportation. The ecommerce giant said it had agreed to acquire Bay Area-based autonomous vehicle company Zoox, a deal reportedly worth more than $1 billion." Williams knew that he had not committed the crime in question. What he could not have known, as he sat in the interrogation room, is that his case may be the first known account of an American being wrongfully arrested based on a flawed match from a facial recognition algorithm, according to experts on technology and the law." Meet Silq: The First Intuitive Programming Language for Quantum Computers Luke Dormehl Digital Trends "The creation of the C programming language was a massive milestone for classical computing.

Learning AI/ML: The Hard Way - DZone AI


Data science, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), since last five to six years these phrases have made their places in Gartner's hype cycle curve. Gradually they have crossed the peak and moving toward the plateau. The curve also has few related terms such as Deep Neural Network, Cognitive AutoML etc. This shows that, there is an emerging technology trend around AI/ML which is going to prevail over the software industry during the coming years. Few of their predecessors such as Business Intelligence, Data Mining and Data Warehousing were there even before these years.

Titan Medical, Medtronic agree to cooperate on surgical robotics development


The development of systems for robot-assisted surgery is difficult, with the need to meet stringent clinical requirements, get regulator approvals, and keep costs under control. Today, Titan Medical Inc. announced an agreement with Medtronic PLC to advance the design and development of surgical robots. The onetime rivals also signed a licensing agreement regarding some of Titan's intellectual property. Under the agreement, both companies can develop robot-assisted surgical systems in their respective businesses, while Titan will receive a series of payments that reach $31 million in return for Medtronic's license for the technologies. The payments will arrive as milestones are completed and verified.

From mythology to machine learning, a history of artificial intelligence


From helping in the global fight against Covid-19 to driving cars and writing classical symphonies, artificial intelligence is rapidly reshaping the world we live in. But not everyone is comfortable with this new reality. The billionaire tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has referred to AI as the "biggest existential threat" of our time. With recent scientific studies testing the technology's ability to evolve on its own, every step in its development throws up new concerns as to who is in control and how it will affect the lives of ordinary people. Here are 9 important milestones in the history of AI and the ethical concerns that have long loomed over the field.

Last Week in AI


Every week, Invector Labs publishes a newsletter that covers the most recent developments in AI research and technology. You can find this week's issue below. You can sign up for it below. Games are often seen as a great benchmark to evaluate the ability of artificial intelligence(AI) algorithms to generalize knowledge. From the different data environments that we can create, games come the closest to resemble real world environments.
