Games make the perfect teaching environment for developers to train machine learning models in, but which game produces the strongest AI? You can put your money on DeepMind’s AlphaGo or OpenAI’s DotA 2-playing machine, but we’ll take whichever one is the first to master Magic: The Gathering – humanity’s hardest game. A trio of scientists led by independent researcher Alex Churchill recently published research in pre-print archive arXiv that appears to establish that Magic: The Gathering, a collectible card game, is “the most computationally complex real-world game known” in scientific literature. While anyone whose ever tried to casually get into tournament Magic… This story continues at The Next Web.

A new study shows early evidence that receiving unsolicited sexual imagery through text, or being coerced into sending it is associated with mental health distress. This is the first research linking both non-consensual and coerced sexting behavior with depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. The research was co-authored by Bianca Klettke, David J. Hallford, Elizabeth Clancy, David J. Mellor, and John W. Toumbourou at Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. According to the team’s research: We recruited a convenience sample of young adults … to test the hypothesis that sexting might be associated with poorer mental health. Our results showed no association… This story continues at The Next Web.

Well, here we are again. A couple of weeks ago, we put together a bar chart animation tracking video game console sales. We organized this by year, so the viewer could see which bit of hardware shifted the most units in, say, 1996. Cool, right? People loved this visualization, but there was one thing we heard again and again: could we create a graph that showed total, cumulative sales? So we could see what consoles sold the most overall? The answer? Yes. Yes we could. And would. And now, thankfully, have. So, please sit back and enjoy a bar chart race… This story continues at The Next Web.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is no stranger to grandiose claims. For more than 15 years, Musk has made it a habit to make outlandish predictions and seemingly impossible proclamations about his company’s capabilities, at times to the detriment of their customers. When he took to the stage yesterday at the Tesla Autonomy Investor Day in Palo Alto, in addition to announcing aggressive Autopilot driving modes (there is even a Mad Max setting that will be available soon) and unveiling an in-house computer chip for self-driving vehicles, Musk also outlined his plans for a driverless robo-taxi service with over a million cars that he… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverage about: Tesla.

Researchers have developed an algorithm that uses satellite imagery to rapidly pinpoint industrial livestock farms, manifold faster than humans can do by manually analyzing maps. Now, the researchers think their new analytical tool could help regulators to identify farms that may be breaking environmental laws. The research, led by a team from Stanford University, was premised on the fact that intensive animals farms are notoriously difficult to monitor and regulate in the United States – while also being a huge source of freshwater pollution. Over 40 percent of the country’s livestock now comes from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), defined as sites… This story continues at The Next Web.

April 20th is a holy day for many who imbibe cannabis. For some, it’s just a great day to watch stoner flicks and smoke herb all day. Others view it with more import; especially those who consume cannabis medicinally. To them it’s a celebration of the day they found a therapeutic treatment that works. Every year, around this time, we see an outpouring of testimony in the news and on social media from people whose lives have been positively changed through the addition of medicinal cannabis. These inspiring stories include children who’ve found the first relief in their lives after… This story continues at The Next Web.

After a stand-off that’s lasted years, Google and Amazon have made peace and finally agreed to put their streaming apps on each other’s platforms. Yes, that means Prime is coming to Chromecasts, while YouTube will finally be available on Fire TVs. The two companies announced today they’d come to a detente. Google will bring the YouTube app to Amazon’s Fire TV devices and smart TVs, along with YouTube TV and Kids later this year. Amazon, meanwhile, will add Chromecast streaming support to the Prime Video app. It’s a welcome, if surprising handshake, given the feud between the two has lasted… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverage about: Chromecast , YouTube , Amazon , Google.

When Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was released 50 years ago, flying cars were a flight of fancy. Now, these futuristic vehicles are entering the outer fringes of reality. According to a new study published in Nature, for some journeys flying cars could eventually be greener than even electric road cars, cutting emissions while also reducing traffic on increasingly busy roads. However, gaps in necessary technology and practical uncertainties beyond the cars’ promising physics mean that they may not arrive in time to be a large-scale solution to the energy crisis and congestion – if at all. How to make a… This story continues at The Next Web.

Welcome to the latest episode of “Facebook’s Daily Screw-up.” Following a report from Business Insider yesterday, the company confirmed it had uploaded more 1.5 million users’ contact lists without their permission when they signed up for the service starting in May 2016. According to BI, a security researcher noticed that Facebook was asking some users to enter the password for their email account when they’re making a new Facebook account. If they went ahead and entered the password, the social network displayed a message saying it was “importing your contacts,” without a way for them to opt out. Later, it… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverage about: Facebook.

Samsung has another PR disaster on its hands. According to multiple sources, Samsung’s new Galaxy Fold — its dual-screen, folding smartphone — is failing just days after reviewers got their hands on it. At least it’s not catching fire. “A review unit given to CNBC by Samsung is completely unusable after just two days of use,” wrote Todd Haselton. After one day of use… pic.twitter.com/VjDlJI45C9 — Steve Kovach (@stevekovach) April 17, 2019 So far, the $1,980 device has only been sent to a select few gadget reviewers, the bulk of which seem to be experiencing similar problems that render the… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverage about: Samsung.

An international team of scientists recently unveiled a new CRISPR-based tool capable of shredding long portions of targeted DNA strands. The new technique provides advantages over previous methods and could potentially lead to a cure for viral diseases such as herpes and hepatitis-C. The new tool is called Type I CRISPR-Cas3. It’s a long-range DNA targeting and editing tool – it can delete longer sections of DNA than its predecessor, the Type II CRISPR–Cas9. The “Type I” and “Type II” distinctions indicate which kind of CRISPR bacteria DNA the tools are based on. The Cas3 version is the only CRISPR… This story continues at The Next Web.

Artificial intelligence offers us an opportunity to amplify service and the integration of technology in everyday lives many times over. But until very recently, there remained a significant barrier in how sophisticated the technology could be. Without a complete understanding of emotion in voice and how AI can capture and measure it, inanimate assistants (voice assistants, smart cars, robots and all AI with speech recognition capabilities) would continue to lack key components of a personality. This barrier makes it difficult for an AI assistant to fully understand and engage with a human operator the same way a human assistant would.… This story continues at The Next Web.

Big tech is broken. From Uber’s sexual harassment scandal to Mark Zuckerberg’s Congressional testimony and Elon Musk’s Twitter meltdown, tech disillusionment is definitely starting to set in for many people. It’s a shift that’s perceptible everywhere. Last month, at SXSW — normally an unabashed celebration of new tech — Elizabeth Warren, one of Big Tech’s biggest enemies, was one of the main speakers. A growing number of people in the industry dares to ask the hard questions: What do we do about privacy? How do we keep AI in check? Can personal data be harnessed to do good?

Oxford philosopher and founding director of the Future of Humanity Institute Nick Bostrom‘s latest research paper seems to indicate our species could be on a collision course with a technology-fueled super villain. Will a deranged lunatic soon have the capabilities to take the entire world hostage? Can our nation’s leaders do anything to stop this inevitable tragedy? Will the caped crusader rescue his sidekick before the Joker’s sinister trap springs? In the paper, titled “The Vulnerable World Hypothesis,” Bostrom posits the whole of human technological achievement can be viewed as a giant urn filled with balls that we pull out… This story continues at The Next Web.

Ted Talk organizers today hosted a conversation with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. The conversation went mostly as planned. It centered on opportunities and challenges faced by the platform, and what it was doing to address them. But in one bit of poor planning, someone decided it’d be a good idea to feature a hashtag, #AskJackAtTED, on a projector screen behind Dorsey during the talk. #TED2019, were you overwhelmed or distracted by the questions on the screen? Take a look at what everyone asked on #AskJackAtTED. Thank you to everyone who participated in our conversation with @jack.

So it begins: after months of rumors and speculation, the first details of the next-generation PlayStation console have finally come to light. In addition to the predictable nuts-and-bolts updates, we have new information on the most desirable upgrades, namely that the new console will be fully backwards compatible. It’ll also come with a massive new drive that could, in theory, cut loading times down to nothing. The details come courtesy of Wired‘s interview with Mark Cerny, game designer and lead architect of the PS4 and Vita. Cerny wouldn’t name the new baby, which has been in development for about four years,… This story continues at The Next Web Or just read more coverage about: Sony.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Are angels really AIs sent to monitor us on behalf of the programmers responsible for our creation? MIT computer scientist Rizwan Virk tackles these mind-boggling questions and many more in his new book ‘Simulation Hypothesis.’ This adventurous non-fiction work speculates the origins of reality, claiming it’s most likely we’re in a computer simulation. In doing so, Virk draws on his vast knowledge of quantum physics, computer science, philosophy, Eastern religion, video games, and science fiction. The result is a compelling – though sometimes frantic – argument against the idea we’re living… This story continues at The Next Web.
