Researchers explain how a new deep learning system (google AI) is able to identify voices just looking at people’s faces as they speak. It was released in a paper titled, “Looking to Listen at the Cocktail Party”. “People are remarkably good at focusing their attention on a particular person in a noisy environment, mentally “muting” all other voices and sounds,” Inbar Mosseri and Oran Lang, software engineers at Google Research noted in a blog post.

Canada has taken one more step to study the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI). The Waterloo Artificial Intelligence Institute launches its first AI research lab concentrating on developing AI solutions for healthcare, environmental protection, urban planning, manufacturing, autonomous systems and human-machine interactions. The Waterloo Artificial Intelligence Institute will bring together a group of researchers and businesses to “advance technology and prepare Canada for future economic disruption,” stated the government in a press release.
Aurora Station has a plans to become the world’s first luxury space hotel in orbit 200 miles above the Earth’s surface. According to Aurora Station their luxurious accommodations will contain private suites for two, the most number of windows ever created for spaceflight, weightlessness, and the world’s only authentic astronaut experience. They are going to launch in 2021. “We are launching the first-ever affordable luxury space hotel,” said Orion Span founder and CEO Frank Bunger, who revealed the Aurora Station idea at the Space 2.0 Summit in San Jose, California.
Scientists working on NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter shared a 3-D flyover video captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Those are among the items revealed during the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria, on Wednesday, April 11. The data had been collected by Juno mission scientists of Jovian InfraRed Auroral Mapper (JIRAM). Imaging in the infrared part of the spectrum, JIRAM captures light emerging from deep inside Jupiter equally well, night or day. The instrument probes the weather layer down to 30 to 45 miles (50 to 70 kilometers) below Jupiter’s cloud tops.
What do you think are there aliens living on the cigar-shaped asteroid Oumuamua? To find out the astronomers in the outback of Western Australia used the Murchison Widefield Array telescope to eavesdrop on the rocky visitor. They found out “We found no such signals with non-terrestrial origins,” the researchers wrote in the paper. Scientists learned about the mysterious, reddish space rock last year when it was spotted by the Pan-STARRS1 telescope in Hawaii in October.

There is a dark zone on Greenland’s ice sheet which is getting darker according to the new survey. In accordance with a viewpoint of a professor when we look at Greenland’s ice sheet from above, it looks like a massive field of white brilliant for the most part. On top of that, it also seems to be melting faster than it should. “What we show is that the dark zone is covered in a finely distributed layer of dust and black carbon, which provide nutrition for dark-colored algae,” study co-author Alun Hubbard, a professor at Norway’s Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate, said in a statement.
