AI chip startup NeuReality introduces its NR1-P object-oriented hardware architecture

ZDNet

The AI chip space is booming, with innovation coming from a slew of startups in addition to the usual suspects. You may never have heard of NeuReality before, but it seems likely you'll be hearing more about it after today. NeuReality is a startup founded in Israel in 2019. Today it has announced NR1-P, which it dubs a novel AI-centric inference platform. That's a bold claim for a previously unknown, and a very short time to arrive there -- even if it is the first of more implementations to follow.


The perfect summertime wireless speaker is now 20 percent off

Engadget

After spending so much time cooped up, most of us are ready to stay outside as much as possible this summer. With the weather warming up, we're already seeing visions of long beach days, camping weekends, park picnics and just about anything else that involves the great outdoors. On our list of necessities to make said activities a success, we count a great wireless speaker, like this stylish device that's currently on sale for 20 percent off. The LSTN Satellite 2.0 Wireless Speaker is small but mighty: It's just 3.5 inches tall and delivers crisp, clear sound for an impressive eight hours of battery life. That excellent audio quality comes courtesy of the 40mm 5W driver that provides a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz.

Samsung Electronics Co. on Tuesday launched a new robot vacuum cleaner with upgraded artificial intelligence (AI) solutions here as the tech giant eyes to boost home appliance sales amid the pandemic-driven stay-at-home trend. The BESPOKE JetBot AI vacuum cleaner comes in five colors at a price of 1.59 million won ($1,430). The product, which was first unveiled at the all-digital Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2021, is equipped with Intel's Movidius AI solution and utilizes LiDAR and 3-D sensors to avoid objects, while cleaning hard-to-reach areas. Samsung said the vacuum cleaner has active stereo camera-type sensors that can detect any object over 1-centimeter high at up to 1 meter of distance.


Sony patents an AI to assist in games like a good player two

#artificialintelligence

Many of us are guilty of giving up on a game because of a long grind or seemingly insurmountable challenge, but Sony's latest patent shows the company wants to change that. Some masochists enjoy the pain of being repeatedly beaten in games like Dark Souls – it's understandable, overcoming those challenges is a great feeling – but most of us have a breaking point where the power button gets hit and the game just ends up collecting dust on a shelf. A patent spotted by SegmentNext details an AI which learns from the human player and can continue when they're not playing: "The method includes monitoring a plurality of game plays of the user playing a plurality of gaming applications," the patent explains. "The method includes generating a user gameplay profile of the user by adjusting the default gameplay style based on the plurality of game plays, wherein the user gameplay profile includes a user gameplay style customized to the user. The method includes controlling an instance of a first gaming application based on the user gameplay style of the user gameplay profile."
