NASA missed these 11 dangerous asteroids, but an AI caught them

February 18th, 2020

There are lots and lots of space rocks hanging out in our solar system. Most of them will never pose a threat to our planet, but a very tiny percentage will indeed come close. Inevitably, Earth will be on a collision course with a dangerous asteroid at some point in the future, and identifying the …

Man, Samsung’s new ‘Neon’ artificial humans really suck

January 8th, 2020

In the quest to make robots more human-like, the holy grail has always been a humanoid machine that is as indistinguishable from a real person as possible. It’s a high bar to clear, and we’re obviously not there yet, but a Samsung-backed startup called Neon is aiming to impress with a cast of unreal virtual …
