“This world will not remain the same as it was till now. Your life habits, your approach to life, maybe your over-aggrandizement of the world as a nation will change. In this light, do we need to reflect on the application of AI in a completely different way?” Prasad said.
Here, the authors sample air and surfaces in hospital rooms of COVID-19 patients, detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA in air samples of two of three tested airborne infection isolation rooms, and find surface contamination in 66.7% of tested rooms during the first week of illness and 20% beyond the first week of illness.

This classic game has been redesigned by - you guessed it AI. In this article, I will talk about how NVIDIA has helped recreate it without the use of a game engine and what this could possibly mean for the future.
While many European states are currently setting up the 5th generation of mobile communication, scientists are already working on its optimization. Although 5G is far superior to its predecessors, even the latest mobile communication standard still has room for improvement: Especially in urban areas, where a direct line of sight between emitter and transceiver is difficult, the radio link does not yet function reliably.
The ability to estimate the physical properties of objects is of key importance for robots, as it allows them to interact more effectively with their surrounding environment. In recent years, many robotics researchers have been specifically trying to develop techniques that allow robots to estimate tactile properties of objects or surfaces, which could ultimately provide them with skills that resemble the human sense of touch.
