Machine gun-toting drone threatens to change combat forever
Florida-based startup Duke Robotics has unveiled the TIKAD, a custom-built multirotor that can carry and fire various military weapons, including semi-automatic rifles and grenade launchers.
Can the US Military Re-Invent the Microchip for the AI Era?
As conventional microchip design reaches its limits, DARPA is pouring money into the specialty chips that might power tomorrow’s autonomous machines. The coming AI revolution faces a big hurdle: today’s microchips…That poses a big problem for the Defense Department. In 2014, Defense One asked DARPA director Arati Prabhakar about it…
Changing a flower’s color with the CRISPR gene-editing tool
It often takes years of careful cross-breeding for horticulturalists to turn flowers certain colors, but scientists can dig right in and change them at a genetic level much faster. Using the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool, scientists have changed the flowers of the Japanese morning glory from its usual violet color to a pure white, by disrupting a single gene.
Can AI detect homosexuality from a facial image? And should it?A study published late last week from two Stanford researchers has caused shockwaves around the world. The duo reportedly developed a neural network that could detect the sexual orientation of a person just by studying a single facial image. The startling degree of accuracy achieved by the algorithm has been questioned by some and accused as dangerous by others.
Apple’s New “FaceID” Could Be A Powerful Mass Spying Tool
“Apple’s new system completely changes that. For the first time, a company will have a facial recognition system with millions of profiles, and the hardware to scan and identify faces throughout the world… This could make Apple the target for a new mass surveillance order.”
