High-speed 5G network seen as ready to give big boost to online gaming

The Japan Times

CHIBA – At this year's Tokyo Game Show, the big draw was next-generation 5G networking -- setting pulses racing with the prospect of a radically more immersive gaming experience. Offering data transmission speeds around 100 times faster than 4G, 5G is expected to enable more seamless imagery -- particularly lower latency, more vivid images -- and sharper motion. Industry experts say it will dramatically improve the quality of augmented and virtual reality games. "It was very smooth, responsive and consistent," said Omar Alshiji, a 23-year-old game designer from Bahrain, after trying out the fighting game Tekken at the NTT Docomo Inc. booth. The major mobile carrier installed 5G base stations at its booth this year, making the high-speed network available at the show.

CHIBA – Next-generation 5G networking was the big draw at Tokyo Game Show 2019, setting pulses racing with the prospect of a radically more immersive gaming experience. Offering data transmission speeds around 100 times faster than 4G, 5G is expected to enable more seamless imagery with lower latency, more vivid images and sharper motion. Industry experts say it will dramatically improve the quality of augmented and virtual reality games. "It was very smooth, responsive and consistent," said Omar Alshiji, a 23-year-old game designer from Bahrain, after trying out the fighting game "Tekken" at the NTT Docomo Inc. booth at the four-day game show in Chiba. The major mobile carrier installed 5G base stations at its booth this year, making the high-speed network available at the show.


Using emerging technologies for better CX

#artificialintelligence

Emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and speech recognition, are changing experiences. For better or worse, these technologies have arrived, and customer expectations are rising because of them. Starcom's Future of Connected Living research project, which took existing homes and transformed them into connected smart homes over a period of six weeks earlier this year, observed the resulting changes to behaviour of the inhabitants. It saw consumer expectations rise exponentially when living in a connected home. And like it or not, emerging tech will only increase customer expectations for better experiences from here.


Top 10 Emerging Technologies Of 2019 - dotlah!

The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently released a report detailing the ten "world-changing technologies that are poised to rattle the status quo." Let's see for ourselves what these technologies have to offer. Some developments in the bioplastics industry allow lignin, a component of wood, to be broken down into its simpler components using engineered solvents. With this possible, plastics can then be made from it. Lignin is found in wood waste and agricultural byproducts which otherwise doesn't have any other function.


User Experience News » Artificial Intelligence (AI): What About The User Experience?

#artificialintelligence

One of the key drivers of the AI (Artificial Intelligence) revolution is open source software. With languages like Python and platforms such as TensorFlow, anybody can create sophisticated models. Yet this does not mean the applications will be useful. They may wind up doing more harm than good, as weve seen with cases involving bias. But there is something else that often gets overlooked: The user experience.



Bringing Augmented Reality to life with 'virtual humans' using Artificial Intelligence – the mission of Scanta WRAL TechWire

#artificialintelligence

Editor's note: This is the latest installment in an Uptech series of video interviews and accompanying transcripts about the emerging development and uses of Artificial Intelligence along with Machine Learning, YourLocalStudio.com and WRAL TechWire are working together to publish this series. Alexander Ferguson is the founder and CEO of YourLocalStudio. Artificial intelligence, machine learning: These emerging technologies are changing the way we live, work, and do business in the world for the better. How is AI actually being applied in business today, though? In this episode of UpTech Report, I interview Chaitanya Hiremath, who also goes by Chad.


Artificial Intelligence Software Will Track Athletes' Speed at 2020 Tokyo Olympics

#artificialintelligence

Ever feel like the broadcasts for running meets lack a few bells and whistles that you may notice during other sporting events? If so, Tokyo 2020 is hoping to change that--and revamp the viewer experience with artificial technology innovations. On Wednesday, Intel announced a new partnership with International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games, and as part of it, also revealed some of the tech they will have at the event to offer broadcasters in Tokyo next July. As a result, track and field fans should be in for a very different viewing experience than they are used to. For starters, the tech giant is debuting what they call 3D Athlete Tracking (3DAT).


GPU Market 2019 Regional Growth Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts to 2024

#artificialintelligence

The key factors driving the GPU market growth include the rising adoption of GPUs in the healthcare sector, rapidly evolving PC gaming landscape with the advent of interactive Virtual Reality (VR) games, and the growing popularity of GPUs for machine learning and neural network training applications. In applications involving machine learning and Big Data analytics, GPUs are highly efficient when compared with CPUs as they enable excellent multiple parallel processing. With 10-100x application throughput and thousands of computational cores compared to CPUs, GPUs are preferred by scientists and data analysts who require massive Big Data processing capabilities. From interactive model-based image registration and MRI connectivity mapping to medical imaging and image reconstruction, the healthcare industry is increasingly leveraging the extensive computational power of GPUs. Technological advancements are giving rise to a persistent expectation from healthcare providers to deliver advanced visualization capabilities.


Will virtual reality and AI help us to find love or make us lonelier?

Two lovers hold hands across a table, overlooking a virtual vista of the Mediterranean. As the pair exchange sweet nothings, the fact they are actually sitting thousands of miles apart bears little significance on the romantic experience. The couple was deemed "hyper-compatible" by online dating technology that matched them using a search engine infused with artificial intelligence (AI). Using data harvested about their social backgrounds, sexual preferences, cultural interests, and even photos of their celebrity crushes, they were thrust together in a virtual reality of their own design. This technology is in the early stages of development.
