Nutanix Clusters: Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure for the Multicloud Era

Article | August 12, 2020

Today’s digital innovation era coupled with increased remote work requirements over the last several months has put an increased focus on IT teams to rapidly innovate to support business needs, all while working remotely themselves. To satisfy the IT challenges of rapid provisioning, while maintaining centralized control, there has been an increased adoption of public clouds like AWS, Azure, GCP and others.

AI TO READ HUMAN THOUGHTS AND COVERT THEM INTO TEXTS

Article | April 2, 2020

Imagine an age where you can read the thoughts of a person via telepathy like Professor X of X-Men comics and uncover their anarchical plans or a tech that reads the thoughts of a mute person or your pets and helps you have better communication. Well, a team at the University of California, San Francisco, performed this experiment and put us a step closer to the dream. Joseph Makin, co-author of the research team says, “We are not there yet, but we think this could be the basis of a speech prosthesis.” The university developed the AI to decipher up to 250 words in real-time from a set of between 30 and 50 sentences. The university recruited four women participants with a history of epilepsy and already had electrode arrays implanted in their brain to monitor epileptic seizures. These participants were asked to read aloud from 50 set sentences multiple times as the team tracked their neural using electrodes while they were speaking. The sample included “Tina Turner is a pop singer”, “the oasis was a mirage”, “part of the cake was eaten by the dog”, “Those thieves stole 30 jewels”, “how did the man get stuck in the tree” and “the ladder was used to rescue the cat and the man.” The largest group of sentences contained 250 unique words.
