How one company is helping to diversify the A.I. field


At SureStart, students are introduced to the fundamentals of A.I. through a self-paced, mentor-led program before breaking into teams to build a project using A.I. technology to solve real world problems.

Truthful and Faithful Monetary Policy for a Stablecoin Conducted by a Decentralised, Encrypted Artificial Intelligence Artificial Intelligence

The Holy Grail of a decentralised stablecoin is achieved on rigorous mathematical frameworks, obtaining multiple advantageous proofs: stability, convergence, truthfulness, faithfulness, and malicious-security. These properties could only be attained by the novel and interdisciplinary combination of previously unrelated fields: model predictive control, deep learning, alternating direction method of multipliers (consensus-ADMM), mechanism design, secure multi-party computation, and zero-knowledge proofs. For the first time, this paper proves: - the feasibility of decentralising the central bank while securely preserving its independence in a decentralised computation setting - the benefits for price stability of combining mechanism design, provable security, and control theory, unlike the heuristics of previous stablecoins - the implementation of complex monetary policies on a stablecoin, equivalent to the ones used by central banks and beyond the current fixed rules of cryptocurrencies that hinder their price stability - methods to circumvent the impossibilities of Guaranteed Output Delivery (G.O.D.) and fairness: standing on truthfulness and faithfulness, we reach G.O.D. and fairness under the assumption of rational parties As a corollary, a decentralised artificial intelligence is able to conduct the monetary policy of a stablecoin, minimising human intervention.

Nvidia shrugs off crypto-mining crash, touts live ray-tracing GPUs, etc


Roundup Here's your quick roundup of AI news beyond what we've already written about this week. Crypto-mining is bust for Nvidia: Nvidia reported strong growth in its second quarter financial results, emitted this week, in areas expected like the data center and gaming – but not for cryptocurrency mining. The demand for GPUs grew 40 per cent from last year to account for $2.66bn in sales, we're told. Popular online titles such as Fortnite and PUBG have helped Nvidia in the gaming department, which grew 52 per cent in terms of revenue to $1.8bn. The boom in deep learning is also accelerating its data center business by 83 per cent, to $760m, where its graphics cards are used as math accelerators.
