Jessica Hammer Named HCII Interim Associate Director

CMU School of Computer Science

Award-winning game designer Jessica Hammer will soon level up when she takes on the role of interim associate director of the Human-Computer Interaction Institute in Carnegie Mellon University's School of Computer Science. "We are lucky to do exceptional research and teaching at the HCII. Even better, we get to combine the two to shape the future of human-computer interaction," said Hammer, the HCII's Thomas and Lydia Moran Assistant Professor of Learning Science. "I want to make sure that all members of our community -- from our first-year undergraduates to the most senior faculty -- can contribute to this mission." Hammer, who has often learned the hard way how to develop a game to meet its vision, said that her training will help her ensure the department's practices and organizations are best suited to meet its goals.

Artificial Intelligence for the Real World


Computerized reasoning has made knowledge with IoT, Big Data, Automation, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality. A program that can do a total simulation of the human mind, is right and making a self-instructing computer-based intelligence that will reflect human learning may be a definitive objective. To see How Computerized reasoning really functions, one necessity to profound plunge into the different sub-areas of AI and see how those spaces could be applied to the different fields of the industry. Incidentally, simulated intelligence frameworks can have impetuses that aren't really clear dependent on their underlying programming. So the motivating forces of numerous current AI effectively go astray from those of their software engineers insignificant and huge manners that are in a real sense forming society.

Lexus and Toyota Want You To Know That You Don't Need Apple Or Google Anymore


There's a new Lexus NX around the corner that's sporting a mild redesign, but the big news revolves around the all-new infotainment system inside. This new system is called Lexus Interface, for better or worse, and it's a shot across the bow in the battle for your in-car infotainment needs. That means the interface was produced in North America, which Toyota says is the first time this has happened. But it makes sense, given that this interface is going up against the tech giants from Silicon Valley, namely Apple and Google. The Japanese carmaker doesn't want to mirror your smartphone; it plans to replace it.

MSc Applied Artificial Intelligence and User Experience


Learn to design and interrogate AI systems with a clear understanding of human behaviour. With the dependence on digital automation and remote working greater than ever, there is a huge demand for professionals with skills in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and User Experience (UX). We are the first UK university to offer a Master's degree bringing together AI, UX Research and Applied Psychology. As well as gaining a thorough understanding of Data and AI techniques, you'll explore theoretical concepts with practical applications. Using data and AI to acquire deeper insights into human behaviour and psychology, you'll also focus on the ethical responsibilities of developing AI applications.

The Reskilling Revolution in the Artificial Intelligence Era: The Case for Digital Upskilling


The Reskilling Revolution in the Artificial Intelligence Era: The Case for Digital Upskilling is online 10am – 1.00pm GMT, Thursday 17 June. However, more and more businesses are also reaping the benefits of AI whether that's a small business replacing paper-based processes with digital, using drones, virtual reality or augmented reality or a total transformational change. The impact for employees could be devastating, with concerns over job role and security, but by providing relevant digital upskilling training, employers can retain valuable employees minimising uncertainty and job losses." Speakers will include leading experts from the field of Artificial Intelligence who will share their knowledge and expertise. SERC will also share the results of their literature review, "Skills and Competencies for the AI Revolution" and an analysis of employer and employee surveys into attitudes towards the introduction of AI into the workplace.

This backup software is self-explanatory and streamlined to cover the most essential features so there is no learning curve.

MBA in Artificial Intelligence Digital Marketing: Term 2.1


Welcome to the first course in Term 2 as part of the series "MBA in Artificial Intelligence Digital Marketing". Artificial Intelligence (AI) seems to be a unique technology of making a machine, a robot fully autonomous. AI is an analysis of how the machine is thinking, studying, determining, and functioning when it is trying to solve problems. These kinds of problems are present in all fields, the most emerging ones, and even beyond. The aim of Artificial Intelligence is to enhance machine functions relating to human knowledge, such as reasoning, learning, and problems along with the ability to manipulate things.

5G Could Be the Future of Concerts. No, Really


Hip-hop artist TheHxliday is 19 years old and determined to have true creative control of his visuals as he makes his way up the music business. He's looking to a cell-phone company to achieve that. The Baltimore native, real name Noah Malik Lee, signed a deal with Motown Records last year and released his first major-label EP last week. To commemorate the occasion, he performed in a 20-minute "virtual world" hosted by Verizon on Friday (May 14th), appearing on fans' screens from an unreal landscape. Virtual effects swam around him -- but TheHxliday didn't pop up as an avatar inside a game, the way Travis Scott did with his Astroworld concert inside Fortnite, and the show wasn't meant to reproduce a concert the way Billie Eilish staged her full-length quarantine show.

The new IIT's "Robot Teleoperativo" (teleoperation robot)


The Robot Teleoperativo is a new robotics result achieved at IIT-Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia and combining the rugged locomotion of HyQReal robot with dexterous and powerful manipulation assured by a new robotic arm, controlled by immersive VR visualization and haptic teleoperation. It represents a significant contribution to the state-of-the-art robotics dedicated to intervention on unstructured, difficult terrain environments, requiring powerful capabilities. The human operator can always be in control, not being replaced by the robot but substituted and assisted by it, in the case of situations where humans may be exposed to risks for their health, such as disaster response or emergency in nuclear, marine, chemical, oil-&-gas, environments. In a new video, researchers show the achieved results: the Robot Teleoperativo is able to open doors, access fire equipment, gather precious items, navigate in the dark, and walk over difficult terrain. The video was showed during the international conference ICRA 2021, on May 31st.
