The new MB&F HM6 is a version of Max Busser’s popular Horological Machine series but features a… Read More

    Zuckerberg says he’s not currently planning to run for president

    Speculation that Facebook CEO Mark  Zuckerberg could run for president has been brewing in recent weeks.

    Kristen Stewart co-authored a paper on style transfer and the AI community lost its mind

    Hollywood and the academic artificial intelligence community have an interesting relationship, to say the least. Many people interested in the field, myself included, love science fiction, but regularly end up being the obnoxious commentator on family movie night pointing out that Johnny Depp’s Transcendence is more anti-intelligence than artificial intelligence.

    Wolfprint 3D raises $500K to bring scanning pods to an airport near you

    3D body scanning isn’t very exciting right now – you can’t really use your scan anywhere except maybe on Thingiverse where people can print you out and create a shrine to you (hint hint!).
