AI suggests recipes based on food photos
There are few things social media users love more than flooding their feeds with photos of food.

Is AI a fundamental threat to human civilisation?

Is AI a fundamental threat to human civilisation?
According to Tesla and Space X chief executive Elon Musk, artificial intelligence is the “biggest risk we face as a civilisation” and needs to be proactively regulated before it’s too late. Speaking at a meeting of US governors, Musk said: “Normally the way regulations are set up is when a bunch of bad things happen, there’s a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry. It takes forever. That, in the past, has been bad but not something which represented a fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation.”

What is the future of VR & AR for businesses?
At London’s TechXLR8 trade show which took place 13th to 15th June 2017, David MacQueen, Executive Director, Apps and Media, Strategy Analytics, gave a talk entitled ‘Harnessing VR & AR enterprise opportunities’. Strategy Analytics predicts that half a billion VR headsets will be on the market by 2022, and that this sector will be dominated by low cost smartphone VR. On the other hand, while niche in terms of volume, many enterprises use PC-based VR and this accounts for 40% of total VR & AR revenue.

Bitcoin could help prevent identity theft

Bitcoin could help prevent identity theft
A reaction to the 2008 financial crisis, Bitcoin is a digital-currency scheme designed to wrest control of the monetary system from central banks. With Bitcoin, anyone can mint money, provided he or she can complete a complex computation quickly enough. Through a set of clever protocols, that computational hurdle prevents the system from being coopted by malicious hackers.
