OpenAI created Point-E, a System for Generating 3D Point Clouds from texts
OpenAI open sourced Point-E, a sustem that transform sentences and words to 3D models. It is advanced artificial intelligence model from Open AI, who uses Dall-E model to create images from given sentences. Point-E adds three.dimensional form to image.
While recent work on text-conditional 3D object generation has shown promising results, the state-of-the-art methods typically require multiple GPU-hours to produce a single sample. This is in stark contrast to state-of-the-art generative image models, which produce samples in a number of seconds or minutes.
Scientists created alternative method for 3D object generation which produces 3D models in only 1-2 minutes on a single GPU. See the science paper here (PDF).
The Technical Red Teaming Exercise Crossed Swords 2022 Starts Today
The technical red-teaming exercise Crossed Swords, experimenting on the integration of offensive cyberspace operations in a modern battlefield, is executed for the 11th time today by the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) in Tallinn.
Carry Kangur, CCDCOE Head of Cyber Exercises said: „CCDCOE continues to provide a unique full-spectrum training session in the areas of cyber red-teaming, penetration testing, digital forensics, and situational awareness.“
The exercise brings together around 120 participants from 24 countries, both from NATO and non-NATO countries and is being conducted at the exercise and training centre CR14.
As 2023 Nears, What Is the Status of 5G and What Can We Expect From 6G in the Future?
Adding a new spectrum is key to each new generation of telecommunications. The two new frequency bands in 5G are sub-6 GHz (3.5 - 7 GHz) and mmWave (24 – 71 GHz). The initial wave of 6G development looks at expanding the spectrum to the THz area, with a special focus on the sub-THz range (100 - 300 GHz).
The advantages of going up to a higher frequency band are obvious: substantial bandwidth (translating to large data throughput) and extremely low latency. These two key benefits allow the exploration of new applications that past generations of telecommunications were unable to explore. Nonetheless, severe signal attenuation when encountering obstacles, such as raindrops or walls, is a crucial bottleneck in the high frequency spectrum.
