  • Sber may sell its smart device development division due to sanctions.
  • Novaya Poshta and the State Emergency Service will develop a sapper robot.
  • TSMC will start production of 3nm processors in September 2022 of the year.
  • Tesla owners urged not to test Autopilot technology on children.
  • Google will update Search to combat clickbait and irrelevant reviews.
  • TikTok introduced a background generator for video by text.
  • Scientists have developed a nanorobot from DNA.
  • The most important transactions in the field of AI.
  • Media: Sber to sell smart device development division

    Sber may sell smart device development division to SberDevices due to difficulties against the backdrop of sanctions.

    According to Kommersant, the bank removed the Sber prefix from the company's name, explaining the changes by expanding its product portfolio. However, the sources of the newspaper believe that Sber allows the sale of the division due to sanctions restrictions on access to foreign components and technologies.

    According to the publication, employees have already begun to leave SberDevices amid difficulties.

    Nova Poshta will develop robots-sappers

    The postal operator “Nova Poshta” and the State Emergency Service of Ukraine will create robots-sappers.

    The company plans to develop at least 40 devices for finding and clearing mines in water bodies and on land.

    According to the forecasts of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, it will take more than 5–7 years for pyrotechnicians to clear mines throughout the country.

    TSMC will launch mass production of 3nm processors

    < p>In September 2022, TSMC will start mass production of 3nm (N3) chips. In 2023, the company will start supplying chips to customers.

    Compared to N5, N3 technology will improve performance by 10-15% with the same power and complexity, and reduce chip power consumption by 25-30% while maintaining frequency. Also, the 3nm process technology will increase the density of transistors by about 1.6 times.

    N3's FinFlex technology will allow designers to mix and match different standard cell types in a single unit to precisely optimize performance, power consumption and footprint. It will be useful for complex products, including CPUs and GPUs.

    In the future, TSMC will launch N3E, N3P, and N3S process technologies. The first will be an optimization of the N3, and the rest will be an improvement of the N3E for various classes of applications.

    Tesla owners are urged not to test autopilot on children

    A Tesla fan suggested testing the Full Self-Driving (FSD) autonomous driving system on children. The Verge journalist asked not to do this.

    The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) also warned Tesla owners against testing the system on children.

    The attention of the regulator was attracted by a video where users tested FSD on minors: they were placed on the road or asked to cross the roadway in front of him.

    According to the authors of the videos, the drone correctly recognized children of different sizes and slowed down.

    The NHTSA urged not to risk people's lives to test the work of automotive technology. Consumers should not recreate their own test scenarios in real life and involve someone else in this, the department added.

    The Dawn Project previously tested the technology on child-sized dummies. Robocar driving along a straight road at a speed of 40 km/h did not recognize them and hit them.

    TikTok introduced the background generator for video by text

    TikTok introduced the AI ​​greenscreen background generator for video by text. The tool is available for Android and iOS users.

    Compared to the photorealistic artwork of OpenAI's DALL-E 2 model, the AI ​​greenscreen algorithm generates primitive abstract paintings. According to The Verge, TikTok may have done this on purpose to avoid the risk of violating platform rules such as nudity or violence.

    Google taught office robots to talk< /h2>

    Google has taught Alphabet office robots to understand natural language commands.

    The developers equipped the prototypes of Everyday Robots with the PaLM model. Now, if the robot hears the phrase “I spilled my drink, can you help?”, It will analyze the information through the internal list of possible actions and interpret it as “bring me a sponge from the kitchen.”

    Google said the PaLM-SayCan system allowed devices to plan correct responses to 101 requests 84% ​​of the time, and execute correctly 74%.

    Stability AI introduced a free text-based image generator

    Startup Stability AI has given more than 1,000 researchers access to the Stable Diffusion text-based image generator. The public launch of the tool is planned in the coming weeks.

    The system runs on high-performance hardware and generates images with a resolution of 512×512 pixels in a few seconds for any text requests.

    The company said that the algorithm can create images with public figures, nudity and even toxic content, which the DALL-E 2 model from OpenAI does not do due to the filters installed.

    Researchers have created a robot from DNA

    Scientists from the University of Montpellier have created a nanorobot from DNA. A gadget the size of a human cell will help to study viruses and pathogens at the microscopic level.

    The researchers used the DNA origami method by assembling a robot from three structures of deoxyribonucleic acid. They then connected the device to a mechanoreceptor-recognizing molecule and learned how to activate it.

    This helped the scientists figure out at what point in the application of force at the cellular level, key signaling pathways are activated. In the future, the same could be done with other biological and pathological processes.

    Scientists say it is the first man-made DNA-based self-assembly object capable of applying and controlling force with a resolution of one piconewton.


    However, the researchers noted that the robot is sensitive to enzymes that destroy it, so it is necessary to figure out how to change its surface and fix this vulnerability.

    The first fully robotic restaurant will open in the USA

    On August 28, 2022, Mezli will open a healthy food restaurant in San Francisco (USA), controlled by robots without human intervention.

    The devices can portion ingredients, put them in paper bowls, heat them up, and serve them to customers. The company said that the restaurant is able to process about 75 orders per hour.

    In addition to ready meals on the menu, customers can assemble a plate from the ingredients they choose. There are about 64,800 possible combinations in total.
