Computex 2019: The best of PC Builds, Gaming Pods, PC Accessories and AI

At Computex 2019, brands such as Dell, Intel, Asus, AMD to name a few, had a lot of interesting announcements. Army of devices from quirky PC’s, gaming pods and accessories were showcased. Here’s Ankit Vengurlekar giving us a glimpse of the most epic PC Builds to what the future of AI looks like at Computex 2019 Follow us on Twitter @tech2eets – and on Facebook – yes the food is absolutely delicious here in Taipei but so are the gadgets and computers I'm here in Taipei Taiwan to the first time ever to check out Computex courtesy assumes so let's see what's cooking [Applause] CyberLink faced me was chopped cross-platform AI facial-recognition Ange 90s 8.4 percent accurate that's a dashboard there's a web camera right up there and it recognizes early 24 to 29 mm-hmm you're gonna have to do better than that emotion happy so it sees me smiling let me make a sad face an integrated trip like that basically monitors the neural activity of the brain and you can stimulate and you can give specific signals to trigger certain neural activity in certain specific parts of the brain and the value of a treatment like this can…

MIT Robot Learns How to Play Jenga

Using machine-learning and sensory hardware, Alberto Rodriguez, assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and members of MIT’s MCube lab have developed a robot that is learning how to play the game Jenga®. The technology could be used in robots for manufacturing assembly lines. Jenga is a complex game requiring a steady handand nerves of steel. As humans, we combineour senses of sights and tough to master this game. Now, researchersat MIT's MCube Lab have devised an algorithmto replicate this ability using a robot. Unlike typicalmachine-learning methods that rely on huge data sets todecide their next best action, this robot learns anduses a hierarchical model that enables gentle andaccurate extraction of pieces. This model allows the robot toestimate the state of a piece, simulates possible moves, anddecide on a favorable one. It divides thepossible interactions between the robotand the Jenga tower into clusters, each withits own set of physics. The robot efficientlyand clearly identifies when a piece feels stuckor free and decides how to extract itusing far less data. This approach as asuccessful example of AI moving into the physical world. The robot learns as itinteracts with its environment and captures some of theessential skills that define human manipulation.

Freaky AI robot, taken from Nova science now, here’s the full episode, enjoy 😀 Also yay for me, 2 videos in one day 😀 :D.

An "anatomically correct" Scarlett Johansson robot

Ricky Ma has no formal training in robotics. He spent three years and $50,000 building a robotic Scarlett Johansson. Ricky is a graphic designer from Hong Kong. With no formal training in robotics, he spent three years building “Mark One,” an extremely lifelike robot that looks exactly like Scarlett Johansson, out of hardware store supplies. Oh, and it’s not a sex robot. This video is part of Machines With Brains, a series about what it means to be human in a world that’s increasingly filled with robots.

Tractor Hacking: The Farmers Breaking Big Tech's Repair Monopoly

When it comes to repair, farmers have always been self reliant. But the modernization of tractors and other farm equipment over the past few decades has left most farmers in the dust thanks to diagnostic software that large manufacturers hold a monopoly over. In this episode of State of Repair, Motherboard goes to Nebraska to talk to the farmers and mechanics who are fighting large manufacturers like John Deere for the right to access the diagnostic software they need to repair their tractors.
