Xbox720 Will Have Avatar-Graphics

AMD spilled the beans on the upcoming Xbox 720, and having fueled the current Xbox360, we believe that Microsoft will pair with the graphics company once again as has proven successful in the past.

AMD claims that the new Xbox will have Avatar-like graphics, which is a bold statement to make. The company went further to say that each character will have the capability of having a unique AI (artificial intelligence), rather than all of them acting in a predictable manner.

Google Introduces Image-Search, Voice Recognition, + Instant Pages

Google is introducing new features, engineered within mobile devices, such as voice and image search to its traditional Google search box. The company claimed that they will roll out a speech-recognition tool displayed as a microphone button on the right side of Google’s search box for a select number of visitors on Tuesday.

For now, it will only be available on Google’s Chrome Web Browser, a browser that claims 12.5% of the web browsing market share. The new speech recognition tool was programmed to take input both from standard English as well as varying accents to help create a platform for everyone to use.

Sony Reveals Smart AR Technology

Sony has just revealed its new SmartAR technology that allows a device to recognize an object, even within a 2D object such as a poster, and animate it. Sony’s prototype will animate the creature and allow the user to manipulate the item by touching the screen directly. While this technology is in the infant stage, this will bring collaboration to whole new levels. Imagine designing a prototype on paper and showing a 3D version of it to colleagues.

D-Wave Releases Optimal Computer For AI

A computer company called D-Wave has just announced that they are selling a computing system commercially, dubbed the D-Wave one. The D-Wave computer is a 128-qubit processor that is designed to perform intense computations. A qubit is the most basic unit of quantum information.

The processor uses quantum annealing to perform given operations. Again, for those unfamiliar with the term, quantum annealing is a mathematical operation where the extreme points of a function are determined from a given set of discrete candidate solutions.
