AI Agents Simulate Daily Life Better Than Humans

Researchers at Stanford and Google created a human behaviour simulation with AI agents designed to simulate daily life. When left to run, the simulation agents organised a valentine's day party among themselves, in a better manner than the human evaluator control group.


AI 2D To 3D Scene Generation

Researchers at Google released Zip-NeRF this week. A neural radiance field (NeRF) is a fully-connected neural network that can generate novel views of complex 3D scenes, based on a partial set of 2D images. Zip-NeRF incorporates complex anti-aliasing and faster training than previous NeFT system, with very impressive results.


God Mode

God Mode is a new AI tool that combines a LLM model with AI agents that can access the internet and incorporate results into subsequent tasks.


Hyperdimensional Computing

Hyperdimensional computing uses vectors to encode information and relationships in 10,000 dimensional space, and could supercharge current AI computing models.


Sustainable Data & AI Practices

Bernard Marr & Co have put together a useful list of tactics to incorporate sustainability in the use of data processing and AI computing.
