This Week’s Top Stories About Technology
This week, we look at some of the top stories about technology
First, we explore how AI is being used to create more realistic 3D images. Researchers from MIT have developed a new AI technique to create more realistic 3D images. The new technique is called “GANs for 3D printing,” It was developed by a team of researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks) are AI used to generate realistic images. The new technique uses two GANs networks- one that generates the 3D image and one that critiques the image to make it look realistic. This allows the system to learn and improve its 3D images over time.
Next, we look at how 5G technology is changing the way we use our smartphones. 5G is the fifth generation of cellular wireless technology, and it promises to be much faster than 4G LTE. One company planning to launch a 5G service in the United States is Sprint. In June, Sprint announced that it would launch 5G services in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. Other companies planning to launch 5G services include Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.
Finally, we explore some of the challenges that facial recognition technology faces. Recently, Facebook has come under fire for its facial recognition technology. In May, the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced that it was investigating Facebook’s use of facial recognition technology. The FTC is concerned that Facebook may be violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act by using facial recognition technology to scan through users’ photos without their consent. In addition, several states have started to pass laws regulating facial recognition technology. Earlier this year, California became the first state to pass a law regulating facial recognition technology. The new law requires companies to get consent from people before using their faces to identify them.
