LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air with its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor. Meanwhile, the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
  1. Self Driving
(Reuters) Competitor Mercedes-Benz says it has built a similar device, but stops short of allowing members of the public to take it on urban roads, as Tesla promotes the cutting edge quality of its current Complete Self Driving program. The German leaders in the development of advanced driver assistance systems ( ADAS) are taking a […]

Google researchers claim they have built a Transporter Network AI model architecture that allows object-grasping robots to reason about which visual signals are relevant and how they should be rearranged in a scene. The researchers say their Transporter Networks have achieved “superior” efficiency during experiments on a variety of tasks, including stacking a block pyramid, […]

Intel today quietly released Intel Geospatial, a cloud platform that provides geovisual workloads with data engineering solutions, 3D visualizations, and simple analytics tools. Intel says it is designed to provide access across an ecosystem of partners to 2D and 3D geospatial data and applications, addressing use cases such as vegetation control, fire risk assessment and […]
  1. Self Driving
There are a billion drivers, each a different entity, so the use of the law makes sense. But there will never be more than a handful of robocar driving systems in any given area, and probably not more than a hundred or so world-wide. Unlike the human drivers, it will be possible to get representatives from each robocar system in a town or nation in one room at the same time.
