It's Time to Wargame Against an AI-Enabled China

The U.S. military, whose wargames generally feature fictitious adversaries that closely resemble today’s Russian and Chinese forces, must start training for the faster-moving conflicts enabled by artificial intelligence and other emerging capabilities, two top military leaders said this week. And the ersatz enemies in these games should be unconstrained by U.S. ethical limits on AI in combat.

Nvidia’s Canvas AI painting tool instantly turns blobs into realistic landscapes

Each distinct color represents a different type of feature: mountains, water, grass, ruins, etc. When colors are blobbed onto the canvas, the crude sketch is passed to a generative adversarial network. GANs essentially pass content back and forth between a creator AI that tries to make (in this case) a realistic image and a detector AI that evaluates how realistic that image is. These work together to make what they think is a fairly realistic depiction of what’s been suggested.

Deep Instinct: AI, deep learning tools can help prevent cyberattacks

Security operations teams have a data management problem: The volume of security alerts they have to process is so high they can miss signs of an attack. In the first Voice of SecOps report from security vendor Deep Instinct, 86% of respondents said tools driven by data science — which includes artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning — would make a significant impact in preventing unknown threats and reducing false positives.

Next generation business applications are scalable, composable and intelligent

AI Helps Restore the Missing Pieces of a Chopped-Up Rembrandt

A mammoth 1642 Rembrandt is now complete after centuries of disfigurement, thanks in part to artificial intelligence. Seventy years after Rembrandt painted “The Night Watch,” edges of the 16-foot-wide piece were chopped off in order to fit Amsterdam’s Town Hall; the hack job cost the painting two feet on the sides and about a foot on the top and bottom. The digital border resets the composition, restores partially-cropped characters, and adds a few missing faces. (If you’re wondering where they are above, we, too, have maimed this due to Kinja’s barbaric aspect ratio rules for lead images, so scroll a little for the full piece.)

You can now build your very own Maypole in Valheim

There's a new Valheim patch out today that makes two big changes to the game, in a sort of "good news, bad news" package. First, the good news: Maypoles, which previously could only be found within abandoned villages in the Meadows biome, are now craftable. This is a nice boon...

Forrester: The new automation fabric is where digital business happens

A new report describes how a collection of automation technologies including RPA, low-code tools, chatbots and machine learning, are converging atop the application layer. Automation is changing the paradigm that development was limited to app development and delivery professionals with specialized skills, a new report from Forrester finds. Today, with low-code tools and robotic process automation builders, "business users and non-coders can now build bespoke workflows and customized functionality," according to the Automation is the New Fabric for Digital Business report.

NVIDIA’s GauGAN Uses AI to Transform Rough Doodles and Sketches Into Art Masterpieces

Have you ever wondered what your sketch could look like if it was drawn by a skilled artist? If so, NVIDIA’s deep learning model, called GauGAN, does just that by transforming rough doodles into photorealistic masterpieces without any extra effort. It doesn’t need a supercomputer, but rather leverages generative adversarial networks, or GANs, to convert segmentation maps into lifelike images. Read more for two videos and additional information.

AI system can rapidly identify healthy, productive skin stem cells

Stem cell therapy is at the cutting edge of regenerative medicine, but until now researchers and clinicians have had to painstakingly evaluate stem cell quality by looking at each cell individually under a microscope. Now, researchers from Japan have found a way to speed up this process, using the power of artificial intelligence (AI).

Artificial Intelligence Restores Mutilated Rembrandt Painting ‘The Night Watch’

One of Rembrandt’s finest works, Militia Company of District II under the Command of Captain Frans Banninck Cocq (better known as The Night Watch) from 1642, is a prime representation of Dutch Golden Age painting. But the painting was greatly disfigured after the artist’s death, when it was moved from its original location at the Arquebusiers Guild Hall to Amsterdam’s City Hall in 1715. City officials wanted to place it in a gallery between two doors, but the painting was too big to fit. Instead of finding another location, they cut large panels from the sides as well as some sections from the top and bottom. The fragments were lost after removal.
