My mom was very supportive and interested in me finding someone, and, unbeknownst to me, created a fake profile to scope out the site.

Traditional vs Deep Learning Algorithms in the Telecom Industry -- Cloud Architecture and Algorithm Categorization

#artificialintelligence

The unprecedented growth of mobile devices, applications and services have placed the utmost demand on mobile and wireless networking infrastructure. Rapid research and development of 5G systems have found ways to support mobile traffic volumes, real-time extraction of fine-grained analytics, and agile management of network resources, so as to maximize user experience. Moreover inference from heterogeneous mobile data from distributed devices experiences challenges due to computational and battery power limitations. ML models employed at the edge-servers are constrained to light-weight to boost model performance by achieving a trade-off between model complexity and accuracy. Also, model compression, pruning, and quantization are largely in place.

AI remains priority for CEOs, according to new Gartner survey

#artificialintelligence

For the third year running, AI is the top priority for CEOs, according to a survey of CEOs and senior executives released by Gartner on Wednesday. The findings also revealed that the metaverse, which has received a lot of hype in the last year, especially since the rebranding of Facebook to Meta, is not as relevant to business leaders – 63% say that they do not see the metaverse as a key technology for their organization. It's not a big surprise that AI continues to be on the mind of top business leaders. As TechRepublic reported in June 2021, 97% of senior executives planned to invest heavily in AI. Jobs in AI, which are often high-pay, are also in demand, according to the jobs board Indeed.com.

For decades, the games market has included both physical and digital games with little crossover. More than a decade ago, I wrote about the Sifteo Cubes, a set of thick tiles with small screens that could be repositioned to create a range of games. The innovative effort may have inspired Hasbro to trot out a line of cheaper and simpler electronic games that included Scrabble Flash and Yahtzee Flash.
