IT has been one of the fastest growing and most lucrative industries for a long time. But is that going to be true in the future?
- Considering the high wages and high demand, it's very tempting to learn to code and join the IT industry.
- While official projections say that this industry will stay strong and lucrative for a long time, some experts disagree.
- Individuals such Mark Cuban and Andrew Yang believe that automation is going to come for the IT industry too and that the valuable skill set of the future might not be what you'd expect.
Researchers advance machine learning to create videos of people from single stills and paintings.
- Samsung researchers improve AI modeling to quickly create realistic (but fake) videos.
- The model uses "single-shot learning" to create videos from a single picture.
- The application of the tech could be in telepresence, video conferencing and gaming.
Cook's commencement speech at Tulane University urges students to take action.
- Apple CEO Tim Cook gave a commencement speech at Tulane University on May 18th.
- Cook cautioned the graduates to not get caught up in echo chambers and algorithms.
- He acknowledged the failures of his generation.
New computing theory allows artificial intelligences to store memories.
- To become autonomous, robots need to perceive the world around them and move at the same time.
- Researchers create a theory of hyperdimensional computing to help store robot movement in high-dimensional vectors.
- This improvement in perception will allow artificial intelligences to create memories.
Don't start investing in flux capacitors just yet, though.
- The second law of thermodynamics states that order always moves to disorder, which we experience as an arrow of time.
- Scientists used a quantum computer to show that time travel is theoretically possible by reverting a simulated particle from an entropic to a more orderly state.
- While Einstein's general theory of relativity permits time travel, the means to achieve it remain improbable in nature.
