E3 2021: Tracking all of Saturday's latest video game announcements

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

This year's event will be online only and runs Saturday through Tuesday with a slew of briefings from companies including Microsoft and Nintendo. USA TODAY will be following all the E3 announcements and have already been tracking news and updates from the Summer Game Fest, which began Thursday, including the release date for "Elden Ring," a long-teased game by From Software, the studio behind "Dark Souls" and "Bloodborne," and Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin. Among the other games many are most anticipating updates about are "Halo Infinite," due later this year for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Windows PCs, and the "Marvel's Avengers" Black Panther downloadable content. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garretti appeared in a video appearance in the live E3 pre-show to welcome online viewers and to say, "we look forward do seeing you in person in 2022."

A survey of machine learning techniques in adversarial image forensics


Image forensic plays a crucial role in both criminal investigations (e.g., dissemination of fake images to spread racial hate or false narratives about specific ethnicity groups or political campaigns) and civil litigation (e.g., defamation). Increasingly, machine learning approaches are also utilized in image forensics. However, there are also a number of limitations and vulnerabilities associated with machine learning-based approaches (e.g., how to detect adversarial (image) examples), and there are associated real-world consequences (e.g., inadmissible evidence, or wrongful conviction). Therefore, with a focus on image forensics, this paper surveys techniques that can be used to enhance the robustness of machine learning-based binary manipulation detectors in various adversarial scenarios.

In defense of statistical modeling


Data science has been hot for many years now, attracting attention and talent. There is a persistent thread of commentary, though, that says data science's core skill of statistical modeling is overhyped and that managers and aspiring data scientists should focus on engineering instead. Vicki Boykis' 2019 blog post was the first article I remember along these lines. Don't do a degree in data science, don't do a bootcamp…It's much easier to come into a data science and tech career through the "back door", i.e. starting out as a junior developer, or in DevOps, project management, and, perhaps most relevant, as a data analyst, information manager, or similar… While tuning models, visualization, and analysis make up some component of your time as a data scientist, data science is and has always been primarily about getting clean data in a single place to be used for interpolation. More recently, Gartner's 2020 AI hype cycle report acknowledges the role of data scientists but says: Gartner foresees developers being the major force in AI.

Global Big Data Conference


Every day, researchers are marking new milestones in the technology sphere. Artificial intelligence is reaching unprecedented heights, taking humankind along with it. Artificial intelligence defines the ability of machines or models to think and learn from experience. Starting from smart home applications and delivery systems to giant robots in factories and robotic surgeon, everything in the digital era is powered by artificial intelligence and its sub-technologies. After the technology got congested with many achievements, researchers divided it into different types of artificial intelligence for their ease.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Artificial Intelligence and What Does the Future Hold? - Big Data Analytics News


Artificial intelligence aims at stimulating human reasoning in machines. There are advantages and disadvantages associated with artificial intelligence that will be listed in this context. AI technology has made it possible to solve complex problems. For instance, AI technology can aid medical practitioners in detecting ailments such as cancer. Also, AI technology can ensure you have access to insider trade news.

Correlation Explained Visually


Every now and then, someone comes and says "I've finally found a replacement for Pearson correlation". The truth is that -- despite its shortcomings -- Pearson correlation (a.k.a. However, the cold hard formula may be a little hard to grasp. So I've tried to find a visual interpretation of Pearson's r, and I hope that it will help you (like it helped me) to understand it in depth. The most interesting part is the numerator: the "codeviance". In fact, the denominator is just a normalization factor that binds the correlation coefficient between -1 and 1 (see here for the mathematical proof).

Top 5 GPT-3 Successors You Should Know in 2021


OpenAI presented GPT-3 in May 2020 in a paper titled Language Models are Few-Shot Learners. In July 2020, the company released a beta API for developers to play and the model became an AI-rockstar overnight. GPT-3 is the third version of a family of Generative Pre-Trained language models. Its main features are multitasking and meta-learning abilities. Being trained in an unsupervised way on 570GB of Internet text data, it's able to learn tasks it hasn't been trained on by seeing a few examples (few-shot). It can also learn from zero- and one-shot settings, but the performance is usually worse.

Implementing ML Systems tutorial: Server-side or Client-side models?


Developing machine learning models is all fun and good, but after developing them you will probably be looking into deploying them into an app to use them. The question is should you put them on the client-side (which is probably the mobile) or should you put the model on a server, send the data to the server and get the results back? In this article, I am going to be discussing the trade-offs and what those 2 methodologies entail. Server-side machine learning models are the most widely-used ML systems simply because the architecture is more simple to implement. For example, you have an application running on the phone (the client) that classifies images.

Brood X cicadas interfere with cars, planes, weather radar

FOX News

Incessant cicada shrill alarms a Georgia town. Fox News' Steve Harrigan has the details. Cicadas have taken over large swaths of the United States, interrupting sleep, causing car crashes and even bombarding President Biden on Wednesday as he prepared to board Air Force One. Trillions of the insects have emerged after 17 years underground in approximately 15 states, leaving nymph exoskeletons littered around city parks and backyards. The red-eyed bugs are especially active amid hot weather conditions that have swept the country in past weeks and residents of heavy cicada areas have taken note.

Larry Page's air taxi startup loses one of its key designers


Kitty Hawk might have the backing of Google's Larry Page, but that doesn't mean things are going smoothly. Forbes has learned that Kitty Hawk dropped key engineer Damon Vander Lind in May after "months" of fighting with Page and CEO Sebastian Thrun over the company's strategy. Page and Thrun want to build a larger version of the Heaviside air taxi that autonomously carries two passengers with a remote pilot as backup, but Vander Lind reportedly felt this was "too risky." There were also accusations that Vander Lind was unreceptive to ideas and at times hostile to staff, Forbes sources claimed. Kitty Hawk further dealt with separate complaints of sexism.
