Google is Working on more AI in China!

Google is expanding their AI research by opening up a brand new research center in China.

Right now the large companies Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple are all heavily researching artificial intelligence more. And they want to find the best scientist and engineers available to win the race. In China they have lots of talent.

Google also have other research center in locations like: New York, Toronto, London and Zurich. The complicated thing about AI is how they will make it work best for everyone and benefit humanity. What will that mean to a robot. Feels for me like we are moving real life fiction or Skynet.

Google believes that China will become better than US 2025 in terms of AI research. In 2020 China will caught up with US, in 2025 they will be ahead and 2030 that will dominate that is what Google’s Eric Schmidt believe will happen.

It will be interesting in the world if we will reach singularity and how much more computers can become and what they will be able to do with that extra computing power. Of course the problem is how humans can’t keep up with this speed of this modern world. And humans need to feel they are doing useful tasks. People wanna feel their life has a meaning.

When life gets easier in future people will also become more bored. Can you really solve that boredom with more machines and AI that is a good question. Elon Musk is doing many interesting things as well in terms of automation of cars and vehicles. But then humans will be bored in car. What will humans do to find meaning that is a good question.

Have smartphones reached their peak or will there always be cool new features that they will be able to implement. Has human creativity a limit in a robot world.

Titan V New Wild Graphics Card From NVIDIA!

NVIDIA is releasing a brand new super high-end graphics card. The price will blow your mind. It will cost 3000 dollars! It’s being called the Titan V.

This card is not meant for regular consumers. But professionals that really need a strong card when they are doing business work. Work such as Deep learning, 3D rendering and Artificial Intelligence. AI is something that is growing more and will only get larger. We have started to see AI learning more advanced games and even be able to beat the most advanced players in a niche.

This card is built on the new Volta architecture and it’s having a 12nm process that is more advanced than the earlier system they used.

The GPU inside is being called GV100. The specs on it are: 21.1B transistors, 5120 CUDA cores, 640 Tensor cores, 1200MHz core clock and 1455MHz boost clock.

In memory we are getting: 12GB HBM2 memory clocked at 850MHz, 1.7Gbps memory speed and 653GB/s memory bandwidth!

Should be good to say that for regular gamers this card is a bit over the top and will probably not make that much of a difference in standard consumer games. But if you are curious about AI and becoming a professional developer then this card might actually be quite interesting to look into.

Some ports that you get on this card is 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI. The copper heatsink look same as the one on Titan Xp card.

So in terms of computing power with the brand new Tensa cores this low price for this variant will be amazing. This card will be available for purchase on NVIDIAs own website. Will probably take some time before it shows up on other places because of it’s expensive price. And shipping international might become a problem. But not impossible!

UBTECH Has Created A Cool Robot Called Alpha 1S!

With technology constantly moving forward we are getting more and more robots coming out on the market. Of course this is nothing compared to the robots we will have in a few centuries but it’s still pretty cool! This is a cool humanoid robot called Alpha 1S.

You can control it via bluetooth with your smartphone iOS or Android. 16 servo joints, flexible like a human, 3D visual PC software to both create and control each action, easy-to-use interface, STM32-F103RDT6 processor, 7.4V 2200mAh battery and 3W mono speaker.

Alpha 1S also comes with good battery life a full charge can last you 60 minutes. That is way better than many drones out there that needs a recharge every 10-20 minutes. You can also share your 3D creations with other people!

The robot comes in blue, white and gray colour, and the charge time is also short. You can really see how flexible the robot is on the pictures.

I am super curious where this will go in the future when we starts to combine the flexible joints with real artificial intelligence, but it will probably take another 10 years at least before we start to see more interesting stuff happening on the AI front.

As we have been seeing now with Google and Tesla both have AI controlled cars on the roads. And eventually trucks will also be having AI controlled vehicles.

A large industry is of course the Taxi industry where Uber has taken over a lot of the market with amateur drivers. And eventually the amateur drivers will be replaced by robot drivers.

This major area of transporting stuff or people will all eventually be replaced by robots who make less mistakes. And eventually what will the jobs be for the humans when robots can do it all? That is a very good question it will be interesting to see. What do you think about the Alpha 1S?

Super Cool Micro Drone From Extreme Fliers!

Ever wanted to fly around but can’t afford an airplane or a helicopter? Well good news for you. Extreme Fliers got their new Micro Drone 3.0!

This drone can record video in HD in FPV mode. You can also live stream via 2.4GHz Wi-Fi. Inverted flying support, auto leveling, sensor-assisted flying, 45mph top speed, 3 flying modes and a return home mode.

So the cool part about this drone is how it both supports live footage HD recording to iOS or Android smartphone. You can do acrobatics and do free flying. Self-stabilizing CPU. It is also built in a metal structure.

The videos in Micro Drone 3.0 record in 720×1280 HD video resolution. You can fly the drone either with the radio controller or from your Android or iOS smartphone. Also you don’t get any strange wires with the battery but it’s easy to switch to a new one fast with it’s Li-Po battery.

With a VR headset you can view the drone footage in first person view. Overall a pretty cool package. I have been talking about VR solutions in the past about how it will take over more and more.

In the future we will be able to experience any reality inside of our virtual reality headsets. Especially when AI technology will be better and when we will reach singularity. That may even happen before 2030 so stay tuned for that!

With this package of this drone you get a first person viewer that works as a VR headset. If you want to see more professional solutions then I have made blog posts about Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR headset. What do you think about the Micro Drone 3.0?

Be careful if it’s your first time controlling a drone. It can be a bit complicated to learn how to control it the first time using it. You don’t want to crash your first drone!

Anet Has A Cool 3D Printer Called A8!

These days you can print cool stuff in your home! 3D printers used to be very expensive but because of competition the prices has gone down a ton! You can now get the A8 3D Printer DIY Kit for less price than a mid-range smartphone!

This 3D printer contains of many parts: LCD Display at the top, Z axis lead rod, X axis motor, Nozzle, Mainboard, Hot bed, Turbofan, Power supply, Y axis motor and Z axis motor.

The LCD display on A8 3D Printer is a 2004 LCD screen with 5 keys, with simple controls and you can pause at any time. It will give you stable print and high-precision visual experience. The stepmotor can work without interruption for 1000 hours. The power supply is a high-quality 180W, 110V-240V variant.

Some ideas of things you can create with this machine are toys for children, art and cultural objects, medical application and more. Come up with something fun to create!

I am super curious about the future with 3D printing. Will we be able to eventually print anything in the world? Including objects that needs hardware to work? Like actually building anything in the world? With the power of AI I think we will be able to get this done eventually within 20-50 years. But will it be available for the masses? Do you think A8 3D Printer is cool? I love it!

Of course a machine like that you would have to feed it all the materials needed to create hardware. Software is already available in the cloud or in hardware or on the internet so that you wouldn’t be able to print. But I think the future may become weird if people can create anything in their home. Will it be safe?

Or will it be restricted? The internet is a strange thing how it allows us all to communicate and share ideas faster. An AI will still be more intelligent than us when a proper AGI has been created. When an AI machine can improve itself then we know we have created something that truly will replace us!
