In a year like no other, Indonesian entrepreneurs have shown grit and determination to keep their businesses running for the communities that rely on them.

Musicians get the bulk of ticket sales with Bandcamp’s new live-streaming concert feature

The musician’s life is rarely an easy one. That goes double for these last, oh, eight or so months. Most artists who haven’t risen the ranks to rock-star levels make the lion’s share of their money from live shows, and that’s just not in the cards for now — and likely won’t be for some time. Bandcamp has been something of a lifesaver for many artists who make fractions of a cent on streaming revenue. Among other things, the site has set up the wildly popular Bandcamp Fridays, wherein it waves...

Researchers developed ‘explainable’ AI to help diagnose and treat at-risk children

A pair of researchers from the Oak Ridge Laboratory have developed an “explainable” AI system designed to aid medical professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adults who’ve experienced childhood adversity. While this is a decidedly narrow use-case, the nuts and bolts behind this AI have particularly interesting implications for the machine learning field as a whole. Plus, it represents the first real data-driven solution to the outstanding problem of empowering general medica...

Google has created an AI-powered nightmare creature generator

Google has taken the wraps off Chimera Painter, a web-based tool that lets anyone generate terrifying cryptozoological entities in an interface that looks like MS Paint by way of Diablo. Why, you ask? Well, isn’t it obvious? No… no, I suppose it isn’t. Surely the strangest thing to hit Google’s AI blog for at least a month, the Chimera Painter does actually have something like a reason for existing.

Twitter and Facebook’s diverging philosophies were on display in the latest tech hearing

The latest tech hearing was a study in contrasts. Contrasts between lawmakers who made an effort to stay on topic in a hearing ostensibly about social media and the 2020 election and those who… just talked about whatever was on their minds. Also contrasts between then and now. Social media companies previously treated any attempt at Section 230 reform as radioactive; now, they’ve now come around to cooperating so they’re not cut out of the conversation altogether. But most of all it was a study ...

Pfizer's COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution May Be a Logistical Nightmare

hey! writes: Pfizer's BNT162b2 vaccine must be stored at a constant -100F/-70C temperature, presenting a logistical nightmare for hospitals, which don't normally have freezers that go that low. This is because it is an mRNA vaccine, and mRNA is unstable unless stored at extremely low temperatures. Pfizer will distribute doses in dry-ice packed "suitcase" shipping containers containing 1,000-5000 doses, but these cases only work for ten days, during which they may be opened only twice a day, each...
