"A robotic technology stack aimed at developers on a budget." "HEXA, which, as its name implies, is a sensor-rich, six-legged robot that resembles a crab. It's designed to be a platform and not a finished product."

"The new bot runs on MIND, an operating system built on the Linux kernel and optimized for robotics."

"How AI is creating building blocks to reshape music and art." "Last spring, a few years after taking a research job at Google, Douglas Eck pitched the same idea he pitched Douglas Hofstadter, the cognitive scientist who wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning book on minds and machines, 'Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid,' all those years ago. The result is Project Magenta, a team of Google researchers who are teaching machines to create not only their own music but also to make so many other forms of art, including sketches, videos and jokes."

"The project is part of a growing effort to generate art through a set of AI techniques that have only recently come of age. Called deep neural networks, these complex mathematical systems allow machines to learn specific behavior by analyzing vast amounts of data."

"The researchers found that photos posted by depressed individuals were more likely to be bluer, grayer and darker. Those without depression, meanwhile, were more likely to have many photos with other people in them, and their photos (perhaps unsurprisingly) also tended to get more likes, although photos posted by those with depression received slightly more comments."

"The machine learning algorithm was able to accurately identify those participants with depression 70% of the time compared to doctors, who were only able to correctly identify depressed patients 42% of the time without the use of a questionnaire or other screening tools."

The study was done with about 44,000 photos from 166 people from Instagram and used color analysis, metadata, and algorithmic face detection.

"Once airborne, the glider uses artificial intelligence to find and rely on thermals, or bubbles of air that rise due to heat, to stay aloft."

"In building their algorithms, Ashish Kapoor and his team relied on techniques that date back decades -- something called Markov decision processes. Essentially, this is a way of identifying and responding to uncertainty."

"We don't know that autonomous vehicle intelligence in the future will all be delegated to a service that no one owns but everyone uses. It could play a role in vehicles that people own, vehicles that aren't supposed to crash. You're buying the capability because of the protection it gives you." Says the new CEO of Ford.

Nvidia is investing in a Chinese autonomous truck company called TuSimple. "In June, TuSimple successfully completed a 200-mile Level 4 test drive from San Diego to Yuma, Arizona, using NVIDIA GPUs and cameras as the primary sensor."

Deep learning has been added to the Gartner Hype Cycle. I guess that means the roller coaster has officially started! "The eight technologies added to the Hype Cycle this year include 5G, Artificial General Intelligence, Deep Learning, Deep Reinforcement Learning, Digital Twin, Edge Computing, Serverless PaaS and Cognitive Computing."

"Heavy R&D spending from Amazon, Apple, Baidu, Google, IBM, Microsoft, and Facebook is fueling a race for Deep Learning and Machine Learning patents today and will accelerate in the future -- The race is on for Intellectual Property (IP) in deep learning and machine learning today. The success of Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, Google's Google Now, Microsoft's Cortana and others are making this area the top priority for R&D investment by these companies today."

I never noticed this before, but the eclipse is happening on a Monday, which is a Moon day. Remember, Sunday is the Sun's day, Monday is the Moon's day, Tuesday is Tyr's day, Wednesday is Woden's day, Thursday is Thor's day, Friday is Freya's day, and Saturday is Saturn's day.

Since the Sun and Moon are coming together, it would also make sense for it to happen on a Sunday, but since it can't happen on both a Sunday and a Monday, and the Moon will be in front (from our perspective), it makes a little bit more sense for it to happen on a Monday.

"DeepMind has developed an AI that teaches itself to recognise a range of visual and audio concepts just by watching tiny snippets of video. This AI can grasp the concept of lawn mowing or tickling, for example, but it hasn't been taught the words to describe what it's hearing or seeing."

The AI learns by finding correspondences between the visual and audio portions of the video. They claim it performs on par with the state-of-the-art self-supervised approaches on ImageNet classification.
