Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

The company is also focusing on advertising and its core segment of gaming.

Chipmaker Nvidia has unveiled a slew of artificial intelligence (AI) products in its bid to stay ahead of the game and join the trillion-dollar valuation club with the likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon. The announcement comes close to the market rally of NVIDIA stock, which rose over 25 percent last week.

Once known for making chips for gaming geeks, Nvidia is now at the core of the AI frenzy that has gripped the world after its graphic processing units (GPUs) have been a critical component of the capacities of AI tools. The company’s A100 and H100 chips have become household names after tools like ChatGPT became popular last year.

5 ChatGPT tricks you had no idea you could do with the chatbot

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

You’ve likely seen all the impressive tasks ChatGPT can accomplish, from drafting emails and resumes to writing code and even inventing a new language. But as we wait for AI to make us all obsolete, we might as well enjoy our remaining time in control of the chatbots. One way to do so is by experimenting with all of the fun tricks ChatGPT can perform.

As intelligent and powerful as ChatGPT is, you can also treat it as a toy. Here are some of the best ChatGPT tricks we’ve discovered so far that might not change your life, but will definitely keep you entertained during an especially slow day at work:

If you’re desperate to play a game with someone but can’t actually find a human to play with, ChatGPT is more than capable of standing in.

OPPENHEIMER — Creating The Nuke Scene

Posted by in categories: entertainment, media & arts, military

Creating the nuke bomb scene in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. In this video essay, I discuss how Christopher Nolan will film the atomic bomb scene in Oppenheimer, a biopic film on the real-life story of J. Robert Oppenheimer. Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer movie will change the movie landscape through its source material and also its filmmaking potential.

Oppenheimer is an upcoming American biographical film written and directed by Christopher Nolan. It is based on American Prometheus, a biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer written by Kai Bird and Martin J. Sherwin. The film is a co-production between Syncopy Inc. and Atlas Entertainment; Nolan produced the film alongside Emma Thomas and Charles Roven. Cillian Murphy leads an ensemble cast as Oppenheimer, the theoretical physicist who is among those credited with being the “father of the atomic bomb” for his role in the Manhattan Project—the World War II undertaking that developed the first nuclear weapons. The film stars Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Florence Pugh, Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Rami Malek, Benny Safdie, Josh Hartnett, Dane DeHaan, Jack Quaid, Matthew Modine, Dylan Arnold, David Krumholtz, Alden Ehrenreich, David Dastmalchian, Olli Haaskivi, Jason Clarke, James D’Arcy, Michael Angarano, Guy Burnet, Danny Deferrari, Matthias Schweighöfer, Gary Oldman, Harrison Gilbertson, Emma Dumont, Devon Bostick, Trond Fausa, Christopher Denham, Josh Zuckerman, Josh Peck and Olivia Thirlby.

How is human behaviour impacted by an unfair AI? A game of Tetris reveals all

Posted by in categories: entertainment, information science, robotics/AI

A team of researchers give a spin to Tetris, and make observations as people play the game.

We live in a world run by machines. They make important decisions for us, like who to hire, who gets approved for a loan, or recommending user content on social media. Machines and computer programs have an increasing influence over our lives, now more than ever, with artificial intelligence (AI) making inroads in our lives in new ways. And this influence goes far beyond the person directly interacting with machines.


A Cornell University-led experiment in which two people play a modified version of Tetris revealed that players who get fewer turns perceived the other player as less likable, regardless of whether a person or an algorithm allocated the turns.

Sunspot explosion blasts out M-class solar flares! Causes radio blackout in USA

Posted by in categories: entertainment, particle physics

The possibility of the Sun causing catastrophic damage on Earth might seem something out of a science-fiction film, but this threat is very true. One of the best examples of Solar activity harming Earth was provided by the Roland Emmerich film 2012. It depicted the apocalypse prophesied by the Mayans many centuries ago. The storyline of the movie revolved around the Sun emitting unstable neutrinos because of anomalous energy processes, which were causing the Earth’s core to heat up and eventually lead to its destruction.

Although the ‘science’ part of the film was a bit over the top, the threat posed by the Sun could cause significant damage on Earth, and a recent solar flare impact gave us a hint of the Sun’s mighty power.

According to a report by spaceweather.com, a Reversed-polarity sunspot, given the designation AR3296, exploded on the Sun, blasting out dangerous solar flares directly towards Earth yesterday, May 7. Forecasters at NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) revealed that this explosion on the solar surface produced a M1.5-class solar flare which lasted for a substantial amount of time.

AI offers new tools for making games, but developers worry about their jobs

Posted by in categories: entertainment, robotics/AI

The early days of AI in game development have been full of questions and murky answers.

For the most part, AI is exceptionally bad at illustrating hands. They come out six-fingered or four-fingered or, even worse, just some wispy ends that fade into the background. AI has been programming large Western 1940s-era smiles onto people of various cultures. It’s been reshaping images we know and refitting them according to prompts. Depending on the data that it’s fed, though, sometimes AI has solutions, and sometimes it doesn’t. Video game developers and AI companies want to use these AI tools to streamline game development and make it faster.


As major video game publishers like Ubisoft start to utilize AI for their development workflows, developers are beginning to worry about future job prospects.

Now, in a new conversation with Collider ’s Steve Weintraub and Epic Games’ Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard, Joe Russo states his belief that a fully AI movie—one so convincing you don’t even know it’s AI—is only two years away.
