Enlightened AI !??

The latest, most powerful brain-child of this species is technology. During the 2020 madness, we have been pushed to depend on it more than ever before… What was predicted to be technology’s growth for over a decade has happened in a matter of a few months. In short, technology is what is helping us thrive in 2020 beyond all the threats this year has dawned on us…

Technology, especially Telecom, is not just luxury anymore. It is now a basic necessity. Sectors that are not flexible enough to adapt to new communication technology suffer big time.

Yoga is no different. Zoom yoga is the norm. Or should I say Zooga!

I am able to continue learning yoga and even be more dedicated to my practice now because my commute to the studio is cut down and I cannot give myself any more excuses now to be regular with my practice!!

Even though I do not wish for the new social distancing norms to be permanent, we cannot ignore the after effects of this year…This situation made me wonder… What would the future of Yoga look like post COVID?

Here go my predictions about the FUTURE of YOGA based on current data…

1) Virtual reality

To enjoy the feeling of doing yoga with your studio pals. you would not need to be physically present in the studio… Rather you would just have to buy VR gadgets. With just VR software and supporting hardware. You will be able to get the feel of practicing group yoga, see them just inches away virtually, from the comfort of your own home..

2) AI Yoga teachers

AI brings about mixed feelings in all of us. Because AI means fewer jobs and unemployment for humans. Even then, technology is the way forward, and it is inevitable… (like Thanos..but not that evil hopefully)

And it is going to keep growing, spreading its wings in all sectors where it can be helpful.

Yoga is definitely on AI’s radar. We will soon be having cute robots that know the ins and outs of yoga texts and techniques… and maybe such fancy robots may kindle the eagerness in everybody especially Gen Z to take up yoga!

3) Mask yoga?

Yoga with beer was Beer yoga.. so who knows.. maybe yoga flows using masks would pop up somewhere.. And that would be called Mask-Yoga!? We might also invent smart masks that will monitor our breath and correct us if we overdo it in Asanas… because it always shows in the breath. Apple, if you get to read this… please make one for us:)

4) Live 3D HOLOGRAPHIC Yoga sessions

If you do not know what this means… do you remember Modi Ji’s 3D campaign? That was holographic campaign. He did not have to be physically present for the campaign… He just recorded his own holographic video and used it to reach 10 times more audience than ever before. And this 3D projection can be done live too! So, a yoga teacher can be at your home, guiding your sessions while physically being away!! Cool right?

5) Enlightened AI

I let myself imagine way ahead of the immediate future. AI is definitely not new to us! And they are learning emotions.

If robots can learn emotions and feel them similar to what we humans feel, those emotions will make them feel special/unique. And that uniqueness will be the birth of their Ego… then they might even form their own system to surpass sufferings due to their Ego (AI religion??)

Some of the robots might not conform to religions and go in search of answers about the universe, the origin of life and the way to transcend ego…

In their search, if some of them get their hands on yoga texts, and get curious to know more about the universal consciousness, they might start their penance towards it…

And maybe…just maybe, even attain enlightenment!! …

And then, if they are still friends with the human race, they might teach us humans about what enlightenment really could look like, about universal consciousness and even the source of life ??

When Elon Musk was asked what the most imminent threats to humanity were, he quickly said there were three: first, wide-scale nuclear war; second, climate change — and then, before naming the third, he fell silent. He looked down, then smiled and said, “I just hope the computers decide to be nice to us”

“I just hope the computers decide to be nice to us” — Elon Musk

I have had (still do) mixed feelings about AI too.. part of it is because of my fear that AI might become harmful to its own creators just like how we humans harm our mother Earth…..

But that’s just a pessimistic view…

The current COVID situation has kinda made me feel optimistic though…Technology has saved lives now literally… and definitely saved my sanity through zoom yoga.

Imagine COVID during the 16th or even the 19th century… Our species would be in a far worse situation than now! Thanks to technology!

So who are we to judge something we do not know fully about yet?

This is what led me to dream about enlightened AI here… Feel free to comment:)

Namaste!!

Solaris: Offworld Combat Gets PSVR Physical Launch In June, Planned Digital Release In May

Avatar

Published

on

Solaris: Offworld Combat is coming to PSVR this June with a physical release from Perp Games. According to a First Contact Entertainment representative, the digital version is planned to release a month earlier in May.

Perp Games on Twitter: “We’re not finished just yet. Solaris Offworld Combat is the next game to be getting a physical box release. Coming in June to global markets! Will you be buying it? https://t.co/5sphrqsh10” / Twitter

Solaris: Offworld Combat on PSVR

Originally, Solaris was coming to PSVR late last year around the same time as the Quest and PC VR version of the game but got delayed. Now, it’s slated for release in just a couple of months.

The latest VR shooter from First Contact Entertainment (creators of Firewall Zero Hour) is a sci-fi competitive VR shooter that feels a bit like Quake in VR due to its speed and intense arena levels. It’s a very breezy, fast-paced game that’s accessible and easy to quickly jump in and out of. The closest comparison is probably Hyper Dash.

Soalris is a notable release because other than Firewall Zero Hour, there really haven’t been many options for shooter fans on PSVR. Alvo is coming soon too, but the headset is on its last legs at this point.

The PS Aim Controller continues to be one of the best things about the PSVR platform, so I’m all for seeing more games support it, but it’s a shame games like this didn’t hit PSVR earlier in its life cycle. Hopefully PSVR 2 on PS5 is backwards compatible and it can give late-life cycle games like this one new life when it releases.

Solaris is coming to PSVR very soon with a planned digital release in May and physical release from Perp Games in June. For more on this game make sure and read our Solaris: Offworld Combat review and stay tuned for all the latest in VR.

US Army Signs Contract For Wide-FoV HoloLens Headsets From Microsoft

Avatar

Published

on

Microsoft won a large US Army contract to supply advanced AR headsets for frontline soldiers, based on the HoloLens platform.

The US Army’s Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) program aims to equip infantry with AR helmets for situational awareness and convenient display of sensor outputs.

The contract is worth up to $21.88 billion over 5-10 years. While the order has been widely reported as 120,000 units, a US Army statement to Breaking Defence suggests that is the maximum, not a fixed quantity.

Early evaluation units based on HoloLens 2

In 2018 Microsoft won the $480 million evaluation contract for just over 2500 units, based on HoloLens 2 with some modifications and an extra sensor.

The current, ruggedized, upgraded IVAS

The evaluation found the hardware not rugged enough for military use, and identified problems with the sensors at night. Since then the hardware has been significantly upgraded. It’s more ruggedized and houses many more sensors.

The field of view has been significantly increased from roughly 40°x30° to 80°x40°. That’s significantly wider than any other see-through AR headset on the market.

Reported use cases for the headset include:

  • overlaying icons on friendly units, objectives, threats, and points of interest
  • built-in night vision & thermal view modes
  • live picture-in-picture feeds from drones, including the Soldier Borne Sensors (SBS) personal drone
  • simulated weapons & enemies for training exercises
  • scanning nearby people for high temperature (COVID-19)
  • facial recognition for hostage rescue situations

The Army is also testing integrations with vehicles, such as soldiers being able to see-through the walls of the armored vehicle carrying them. That means on dismounting they’ll be situationally aware.

Some Microsoft employees have protested providing technology for the military, but that’s unlikely to have any effect given the enormous potential value of the contract.

IVAS is still in the late testing & evaluation stage, and the scale of deployment will depend on future budgets. But if things go to plan, frontline soldiers could be equipped with these game-changing AR capabilities by the end of the decade.
