In a world struggling to kick its addiction to fossil fuels and feed its growing appetite for energy, there's one technology in development that almost sounds too good to be true: nuclear fusion.If it works, fusion power offers vast amounts of clean energy with a near limitless fuel source and virtually zero carbon emissions.This is an experimental €1 billion A$1.4bn fusion reactor built in Greifswald, Germany, to test a reactor design called a stellarator.This is an important step en-route to demonstrating an essential feature of a future fusion power plant: continuous operation.Containing such a superheated fuel is no easy feat, so it's turned into a hot ionised gas – a plasma – which can be contained within a magnetic field so it doesn't actually touch the inside of the reactor.What makes the W-7X particularly interesting is its stellarator design.
Whether it s HAL 9000 in Stanley Kubrick s 2001: A Space Odyssey or the computer that learned to recognize cats by watching YouTube videos, artificial intelligence has a long and storied history of crossing over with movies.A new project, created by Copenhagen-based creative coding studio Støj, represents the next step of that process with an AI designed to watch — and try and make sense of — Hollywood movie trailers.More: Trust us, this video of 15 different sorting algorithms is way more entertaining than it sounds We are two interaction designers with a big interest in machine learning and computer vision, team member Lasse Korsgaard told Digital Trends.Real time object detection has the potential to become a really powerful tool in the type of work we do, and to test out its capabilities we thought it would be fun to run some movies through the algorithms.The main component of the project involves YOLO-2, a system for real-time object detection that is able to recognize everyday objects like persons, ties, cars, and chairs as they appear.

The model is tentatively called A120, which was chosen as an homage to the iconic A110 that dominated the world of rallying during the 1960s.Perhaps inspired by Tesla s success, Alpine is taking orders before unveiling a production model.Enthusiasts can download a smartphone app called Alpine and make a 2,000 euros roughly $2,100 deposit to reserve one of the very first cars to roll off the production line.Right now buyers can only choose whether they want the car painted blue, black, or white, but more options will be added to the app as production nears.The production model is significantly inspired by the striking Vision concept that was shown during an event in Monaco last year.Key retro-inspired styling cues like the lights, the shape of the hood, and the wraparound rear window have made the transition from concept to production with only minor tweaks.
Chinese online search giant Baidu on Monday set up an Augmented Reality Lab as part of its efforts to make the technology available to China s hundreds of millions of smartphone users.The lab, which is a spin-off of the Baidu Institute of Deep Learning, is dedicated to developing state of the art technologies and building augmented reality applications for various industries.Augmented reality has been in the news recently, particularly after the tremendous popularity of Pokemon Go.However, it has not made big strides like virtual reality, as location-based augmented reality games are still banned on the mainland.Andrew Ng, chief scientist of Baidu, however, see great potential for the technology, especially in areas like education, medical care and tourism, as the technology helps people use a more interactive way to explore the world .Many of the mobile phone-based innovation starts in China.
Facebook users will soon be able to flag news stories as fake and the social network may subsequently label the stories as "disputed" in a test of fake news filtering tools starting soon in Germany.The test will send user-flagged stories to Correctiv, a third-party fact checker.If the fact checker finds they are unreliable, the story will be de-prioritized in Facebook's news feed algorithm, meaning that fewer people see the story in their feed, according to the Financial Times.Our focus is on Germany right now but we re certainly thinking through what countries will unveil next, a Facebook spokesperson told the Financial Times.The Facebook test comes as Germany has had its own "fake news" problem, including one false viral story that said that Germany's oldest church was set on fire.German officials had previously threatened internet companies like Facebook with prosecution under strict libel and slander laws if they did not curb "hate speech" and other fake news on their platforms."We need to fully utilize all the legal authority at our disposal," Heiko Mass, Germany's Justice Minister, said in December.The proliferation of misleading and false news stories on Facebook has been a heated point of debate in the US as well, with some studies suggesting that clearly false stories — like one about the Pope endorsing President-elect Donald Trump before the election — were more widely read and distributed than truthful stories.Some observers have said that "fake news" contributed to Trump's election.President Obama called fake stories on Facebook a "dust cloud of nonsense" and "crazy conspiracy theorizing.
MEPs are discussing rules for human-robot interaction, including whether robots should come with a kill switch to allow them to be shut down in an emergency.A report from MEPs claims there is a "new industrial" robot revolution on its way, and calls for rules to be put in place ahead of its arrival.Specifically, the report explores whether to give robots legal status as "electronic persons", which would see them given human-style rights.It also discusses the rise of artificial intelligence: "Now that humankind stands on the threshold of an era when ever more sophisticated robots, bots, androids and other manifestations of artificial intelligence "AI" seem poised to unleash a new industrial revolution, which is likely to leave no stratum of society untouched, it is vitally important for the legislature to consider all its implications."The report goes on to recommend a 'general basic income' for robots and AI, inviting member states to 'seriously consider' the reccomendation.Much of the discussion echoes sentiments from prominent tech leaders such as Bill Gates and Elon Musk, who have been warning of an impending AI takeover for some time now.
That means no crummy smartphone games on your morning commute, but rather Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.Surely Miyamoto and co won t let us down twice on the trot?To find out we got hands-on with the Nintendo Switch at its London launch event.This is the hardware you could well be lugging around with you for the best part of four years, after all.It's brimming with buttons as well, including two analogue sticks, eight action buttons, start and select buttons and two pairs of shoulder triggers.The Switch s screen and battery life are inexorably linked: big displays with a high resolution require a lot of power to work, smaller displays with lower resolutions require less power.

News flash: Nokia isn t dead.Over the last couple of years we ve seen the Nokia name bob up to the surface a few times before disappearing back into the tech abyss of £20 feature phones.But now it looks like the pre-iPhone king of phones may be back for good.And it sounds like this will be the first of many new Nokias.It s a gigantic Chinese online retailer that sells lipstick, scarves and an awful lot of tech.While not exactly confirmation of new Nokia Android phones, licence owners HMD Global more on them later had been expected to have at least one big Nokia-related announcement at Mobile World Congress in late February.
Tesla has been on quite the talent search of late.Last year it hired Peter Hochholdinger from Audi to oversee Model 3 production.It also hired Anders Bell——to take charge of designing interiors.On Tuesday, that Apple programmer Chris Lattner had left the company Elon Musk once described as the "Tesla Graveyard" to become VP for Autopilot.Well, it turns out he's not the only longtime Apple man to ride whatever it is you'd call the Silicon Valley equivalent of Charon's boat.
