By Neil Sahota  |  November 25, 2018  |  Source: CogWorld on FORBES I am never cleanly shaven. But it’s not because I’m lazy. Or because I don’t care about my appearance. Three years ago, I stopped shaving with water to conserve H20. It might seem like a little thing, but little things add up. When I tell people this, they sometimes scoff at me. “Oh, come on,” they say. “Just how much water are you actually saving?” About a gallon a day. That comes out to 365 gallons a year.

By Naveen Joshi  |  June 10, 2018 It is quite impressive to see how deep learning reconstructs holograms to benefit various industries and their consumers. What if your contacts pop out of your phone while you make a call? What if people who are not around us emerge from nowhere in our room? You might think that such things can only happen in a fictitious world, yet fortunately, we're in times where we have technology that helps us experience such events. Technology has already brought celebrities Frank…

By Sheridan Tatsuno  |  November 17, 2017 In "Blade Runner" and the upcoming movie "Ready Player One," Hollywood shows us one of their favorite genres -- dark, violent dystopias not unlike many cities today. Dystopias have become so pervasive in movies, books and TV programs that many people are tiring of them and seeking relief in more positive stories and news. Instead of another round of virtual shoot-em-up hells, many VR developers are asking: How can virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) be…
