Engadget

Not content to be merely a Hollywood movie star, Sega's Sonic is making his way to Minecraft. Just in time for the hedgehog's 30th birthday on June 23rd, Mojang is releasing Sonic-themed DLC for its immensely popular sandbox title. The downloadable content includes a bit of everything. Fan-favorite Sonic levels like the Green Hills Zone have gotten a blocky makeover, turning them into infinite runners you can play through with your friends. Naturally, they'll be rings along the way for you and your buddies to collect as you race one another.


Top 6 Artificial Intelligence Documentaries

#artificialintelligence

Statistics and machine learning have been increasingly popular in recent years. Nowadays, machine learning can assist us in making better judgments, and big data governs every aspect of our life. It has an impact on how we operate, shop, and do businesses. Looking for some Artificial Intelligence Documentaries to watch? Well, here is a list of some documentaries that you must watch.


The Morning After: Robot dog maker Boston Dynamics has a new owner

Engadget

If you haven't already bought a new gaming monitor in the online shopping chaos we like to call Prime Day, Samsung might have something to halt any rash purchases. It unveiled its latest batch of budget Odyssey gaming monitors, including a flat rather than a curved model that can do 4K at 144Hz. Unlike Samsung's curvy G9 and G7 models, the new Odyssey G7 28 (G70) has a flat panel and uses IPS rather than QLED tech, which means it won't be as bright. With HDMI 2.1 compatibility, it can do 4K resolution at up to 144Hz, so it'll support Sony's PS5 and the Xbox Series X models at 4K 120Hz with room to spare. Alas, Samsung hasn't offered prices for this, the most interesting model.


Why UX should guide AI

#artificialintelligence

If we need to learn one thing about the numerous AI applications around us today, it is that they are examples of "artificial specific intelligence." In other words, they rely on algorithms that are great at very particular tasks, such as selecting a movie based on our watching history or keeping our car in the proper lane on the highway. Because it is so highly specialized, AI greatly outperforms human intelligence in those narrowly defined tasks. Take it from a person who recently spent 50 minutes picking a movie that itself lasted 77 minutes. However, AI's effectiveness at specialized jobs comes at the price of severe context blindness and a general inability to develop meaningful feedback loops: The typical algorithm does not and cannot consider the wider implications of the decisions it makes and hardly affords us users any control over its inner workings.


12 of the best suspense movies on Netflix to put you on edge

Mashable

Given how stress-inducing the real world can be at the best of times, movies that rely on tension as a driving force might seem like an odd entertainment choice to some. But who are we to judge? Maybe spending 90 minutes sweating and wincing in front of the TV screen is actually a cathartic way to let off some steam -- and at the very least, a suspense movie is always a great way to get the ol' heart-rate up. But what actually is a suspense movie? How is it different to a thriller?


Data Science: Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

Perhaps the most popular data science methodologies come from machine learning. What distinguishes machine learning from other computer guided decision processes is that it builds prediction algorithms using data. Some of the most popular products that use machine learning include the handwriting readers implemented by the postal service, speech recognition, movie recommendation systems, and spam detectors. In this course, part of our Professional Certificate Program in Data Science, you will learn popular machine learning algorithms, principal component analysis, and regularization by building a movie recommendation system. You will learn about training data, and how to use a set of data to discover potentially predictive relationships.

6 Python Projects You Can Finish in a Weekend

#artificialintelligence

Learning Python can be difficult. You might spend a lot of time watching videos and reading books; however, if you can't put all the concepts learned into practice, that time will be wasted. This is why you should get your hands dirty with Python projects. A project will help you bring together everything you've learned, stay motivated, build a portfolio and come up with ways of approaching problems and solving them with code. In this article, I listed some projects that helped me level up my Python code and hopefully will help you too.


Smart Recommendation System For OTT platforms

#artificialintelligence

The recommendation engine has become quite popular across diverse industries in recent years. The recommendation engine is gaining rapid traction from OTT (Over the Top) platforms to e-commerce stores. Whether you have just started your OTT platform or plan to scale it up, recommendation engines can significantly improve your profitability. A Recommendation engine or recommendation system is an information filtering tool that provides the most relevant suggestions regarding products or services to various customers. A recommendation engine uses machine learning algorithms to collect and analyze user activities such as their preferences, search history, and others.


"Demon Slayer": The Viral Blockbuster from Japan

The New Yorker

One of the seismic cultural shifts of the pandemic era has been a migration into fantasies. Some of them are troubling, such as the conspiratorial prejudice that has fuelled QAnon and the recent surge in violence against those of Asian descent. Others are restorative: the immersive worlds of books, the virtual realities of video games, the hypnotic lull of binge-streamed television series. Many of the escapes that we use to nourish ourselves originated in Japan. The stunning success of Nintendo's Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which sold thirty-one million copies worldwide last year, is a striking example.
