  • NYC’s speed limiter trial leaves the EU in the dust

    Aug 18, 2022 | 09:36 am

    NYC’s speed limiter trial leaves the EU in the dust Late last week, the City of New York announced a revolutionary way to curb the problem of speeding using speed limiters. It’s not only a first for the city, but a massive upgrade on efforts rolled out this year in Europe.  As part of a new six-month pilot program, 50 city fleet vehicles are fitted with active intelligent speed assistance (ISA), which restricts a vehicle’s maximum speed, preventing it from exceeding local speed limits. If successful, the City of New York will extend the initiative across the City’s entire 30,000 vehicle fleet, which includes fire engines, police cars, sanitation trucks,…This[…]

  • DeepMind feuds with Russian scientists over quantum AI research

    Aug 16, 2022 | 19:39 pm

    DeepMind feuds with Russian scientists over quantum AI research There’s nothing quite so dramatic and inspirational as a scientific breakthrough. But what happens when different groups of scientists can’t seem to agree on the science? DeepMind, an Alphabet research company based in London, published a fascinating research paper last year wherein it claimed to have solved the huge challenge of “simulating matter on the quantum scale with AI.” Now, nearly eight months later, a group of academic researchers from Russia and South Korea may have uncovered a problem with the original research that places the paper’s entire conclusion in doubt. The implications for this cutting-edge research could be huge,…This[…]

  • 5 tips to get the most out of your ‘workation’

    Aug 16, 2022 | 12:54 pm

    5 tips to get the most out of your ‘workation’ During the Covid-19 pandemic, international travel pretty much came to a halt. As countries around the globe closed their borders and put extra security measures in place, people were forced to holiday a little bit closer to home. Staycations were all the rage and for a while, they seemed to fill a void. But now, we’ve moved on. 2022 is officially the year of revenge travel. Already, according to MarketWatch, 1.5 billion more passengers are flying internationally compared to 2021. It seems like the whole world is trying to make up for lost time with many households scheduling more than…This[…]

  • A pie from the sky: The future of drone deliveries is suburban

    Aug 16, 2022 | 12:18 pm

    A pie from the sky: The future of drone deliveries is suburban Picture it. Using an app, you order a new mobile phone on Amazon or a burger from your favorite restaurant. A mere 20 minutes later, you get an alert on your phone and head out to the backyard to see a drone descending from the sky holding your package. Your package gently drops to the ground, and the drone flies off. And it’s being led by retail behemoths Amazon, Walmart, and a slew of food delivery companies. I spoke to industry insiders to get the state of play and see an industry evolving from nascent to the mainstream, but for…This[…]

  • Want to spot a deepfake video caller? Ask the suspect to turn sideways

    Aug 11, 2022 | 18:45 pm

    Want to spot a deepfake video caller? Ask the suspect to turn sideways Researchers have discovered a surprisingly simple way to detect deepfake video calls: ask the suspect to turn sideways. The trick was shared this week by Metaphysic.ai, a London-based startup behind the viral  Tom Cruise deepfakes. The company used DeepFaceLive, a popular app for video deepfakes, to transform a volunteer into various celebrities. Most of the recreations were impressive when they looked straight-ahead. But once the faces rotated a full 90-degrees, the images became distorted and the spell was broken. The fakes fell apart at a sharp 90° profile. Credit: Metaphysic.ai The team believes the defects emerge because the software uses fewer…This[…]

  • You can buy this flying car, but should you?

    Aug 11, 2022 | 11:58 am

    You can buy this flying car, but should you? The idea of a car that turns into a plane in three minutes sounds like a dream. Imagine you’re driving along during peak hour. You get an alert of incoming traffic and shapeshift into an aircraft that takes to the skies, overtaking commuter delays, toll bridges, and construction delays — suck it, gridlock! But the reality of the flying car (aka air car) is a lot less spontaneous and a lot less flexible.  And I’m here to burst your bubble following the news of Samson Sky’s successful FAA inspection.  This week, after 14 years of design, R&D, and fundraising, Samson…This[…]

  • UK government again plugs strike-busting dream of driverless subway trains

    Aug 9, 2022 | 21:27 pm

    UK government again plugs strike-busting dream of driverless subway trains It’s strike season on the London Underground, and that means one thing for the UK’s interminable Tory governments: time to rev-up the driverless hype train. Conservative politicians have long called for a fully-autonomous metro. In 2012, then-London Mayor Boris Johnson said Britain’s capital would have driverless trains within 10 years. A decade later, he claimed the switch would free people from being “prisoners of the unions.” The government reiterated the case during recent funding talks with Transport for London (TfL), which operates the local underground network. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps made working towards driverless trains a condition of the bailout. Shapps…This[…]

  • Drones offer sustainable last-mile parcel delivery

    Aug 9, 2022 | 15:50 pm

    Drones offer sustainable last-mile parcel delivery The future of last-mile package delivery is fast and contactless, with delivery providers focused on eliminating traffic and parking challenges. An increasingly prominent option is the use of uncrewed aerial vehicles or drones.  This week research comparing the environmental impact of different forms of last-mile delivery was published in the scientific journal Patterns. Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University compared the energy consumption of quadcopter drones against diesel and electric medium-duty trucks, small vans, and electric cargo bicycles on a per-package basis. They found that greenhouse-gas emissions per parcel were 84% lower for drones than for diesel trucks. Unsurprisingly, drones consumed…This[…]
