Researchers at Purdue university and Stanford University believe they have found a novel laser light sensing technology that is more robust and less expensive than currently available with a wide range of uses, including a way to guide fully autonomous vehicles.The researchers say their innovation is orders of magnitude faster than conventional leading-edge laser beam steering devices that use phased antenna-array technology. The laser beam steering being tested and used by Purdue and Stanford is based on light-matter interaction between a silicon-based metasurface and short light pulses produced for example by a mode-locked laser with a frequency-comb spectrum.

Horizon Robotics gets strong team, funding. An ambitious startup in Beijing has started shipping systems using its own designs for machine-learning SoCs. Horizon Robotics ultimately aims to power millions of cars and smart cameras with its AI chips. The startup adds fuel to China’s claims it will take a leading role in machine learning. Horizon’s chief executive sits on the country’s committee driving a national initiative in AI. Founded in July 2015, Horizon’s top executives come from AI groups at Baidu and Facebook and the chip division of Huawei.

People are remarkably good at focusing their attention on a particular person in a noisy environment, mentally “muting” all other voices and sounds. Known as the cocktail party effect, this capability comes natural to us humans. However, automatic speech separation — separating an audio signal into its individual speech sources — while a well-studied problem, remains a significant challenge for computers.

With support from Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox, FIDO2 Project opens new era of ubiquitous, phishing-resistant, strong authentication to protect web users worldwide. The FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have achieved a major standards milestone in the global effort to bring simpler yet stronger web authentication to users around the world. The W3C has advanced Web Authentication (WebAuthn), a collaborative effort based on Web API specifications submitted by FIDO to the W3C, to the Candidate Recommendation (CR) stage. The CR is the product of the Web Authentication Working Group, which is comprised of representatives from over 30 member organizations. CR is a precursor to final approval of a web standard, and the W3C has invited online services and web app developers to implement WebAuthn.
