Your face is your passport at Qantas
Qantas is trialling a biometrics system that uses your face as your passport at Sydney International Airport. Participants will have their face scanned to prove identity, instead of a passport. In the future your face will be your passport and your boarding pass. Qantas customers will not only be able to check-in for their flight using the technology, it is also available for their lounge staff who can create a more personalized experience when you arrive. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/07/05/your-face-will-be-your-passport-qantas-passengers-start-using-biome.html?

Order a tailored shirt online
While many people order clothes online, this is based on a process of trial and error where you try different sizes and return the unwanted ones. Original Stitch has solved this problem for shirts. Their solution, called ?Bodygram?, involves you selecting from different styles then taking 2 photos of yourself, one front on and one side on. Bodygram then uses AI, computer vision and machine learning to develop an analysis of your required shirt sizing with almost (99%) accuracy. www.originalstitch.com

An AI system at the board table
The first live, public debate between an artificial intelligence system and two human debaters has happened. Using language and reasoning to debate is far more complicated than playing a game and the AI system matched the humans. Once AI is capable of persuasive arguments, it can be applied as a tool to aid human decision-making. One example of this might be boardroom decisions, where there are conflicting points of view. The AI system could, without emotion, listen to the conversation, take all of the evidence and arguments into account and challenge the reasoning of humans where necessary. The machine wouldn?t make the decision but would contribute to the discussion and act as another voice at the table. www.theguardian.com/technology/2018/jun/18/artificial-

A robot fish that could revolutionise how we view the ocean
A team from MIT?s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory has developed a soft robotic fish that can independently swim alongside real fish in the ocean and take high-resolution photos and videos. It?s the first robotic fish that can swim untethered in three dimensions for extended periods of time. A robot like this can help explore a reef more closely than current robots. It has the potential to be a new type of tool for ocean exploration and to open up new avenues for uncovering the mysteries of marine life.? http://news.mit.edu/2018/soft-robotic-fish-swims-alongside-real-ones-coral-reefs-0321

A wearable device that can read your mind
MIT researchers have created a wearable device called AlterEgo that can recognize nonverbal prompts, essentially ?reading your mind.? We can't live without our digital devices. But at the moment, the use of those devices is very disruptive. MIT is experimented with new technologies to develop something that would allow us to benefit from the information offered by these devices, but in a way that allows us to "remain in the present." https://www.dezeen.com/2018/04/09/mit-media-lab-alterego-device-technology/
