AI detects movement through walls using wireless signals

You don't need exotic radar, infrared or elaborate mesh networks to spot people through walls -- all you need are some easily detectable wireless signals and a dash of AI. Researchers at MIT CSAIL have developed a system (RF-Pose) that uses a neural...

Microsoft is working on its own game streaming service

Microsoft isn't going to let Sony's PlayStation Now go unanswered. The company has announced that it's developing its own game streaming service, which promises "console-quality gaming on any device." In other words, expect Xbox-level visuals and g...

Experimental drone uses AI to spot violence in crowds

Drone-based surveillance still makes many people uncomfortable, but that isn't stopping research into more effective airborne watchdogs. Scientists have developed an experimental drone system that uses AI to detect violent actions in crowds. The te...

Fox Sports’ World Cup highlight machine is powered by IBM’s Watson

We're only ten days away from the start of the FIFA World Cup 2018. And for soccer (er, football) fans in the US, Fox Sports will be the TV network responsible for bringing them all 64 games from Russia, at least if they want to watch them in English...
