TLDR: The Ultimate Artificial Intelligence Scientist Certification Bundle is your ticket to understanding — and maybe even working with — AI and machine learning systems.

Artificial intelligence has seeped into literally every facet of human life — and examples are in front of us every day. Like how AI advances just led to a new way to test your eyesight that doesn’t involve the old eye chart. Or how the U.S. House of Representatives thinks military artificial intelligence programs are so important that they should be overseen by the deputy Secretary of Defense. Or how Carnegie Mellon University is putting $5 million toward how AI can mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak. And that all happened in the space of 24 hours this month.

There’s a reason why AI and machine learning experts are earning seven-figure salaries (yep, $1 million) and now, you can lay the groundwork to join the AI explosion with the training in The Ultimate Artificial Intelligence Scientist Certification Bundle ($34.99, over 90 percent off from NTW Deals).

This collection of four courses offered by Super Data Science covers nearly 80 hours of content, offering inquisitive learners a 360-degree view of the advances happening in artificial intelligence and machine learning right now, as well as how that technology can be applied in virtually any field. And the training is definitely a hit, registering almost 200,000 positive reviews from over 1 million former students.

As the cornerstone of AI and machine learning, students start with a deep dive in Python A-Z, offering a full introduction to this elegantly simple, yet ultra-versatile programming language. As learners get a hold on how to code in Python, they’ll also face real world challenges to reinforce the training.

Next, courses in Machine Learning A-Z and Deep Learning A-Z explore how that coding is used to help the processing of large data sets to literally help machines interpret, reason and actually make critical decisions all by themselves. Training here also gets hands-on with the construction of machine learning models and projects that highlight the difficulty of getting AI right and the problems those professionals often face.

Finally, the Tensorflow 2.0: A Complete Guide on the Brand New Tensorflow goes in for an ultra-specific look at a critical industry tool for making machine learning work. Here, learners build models and even fashion their own neural networks that facilitate how machines understand and act on all that data correctly.

Each course in this package is a $200 value on its own, but you can get all this AI background training now for just $34.99.

Prices are subject to change.

How to turn off political ads on Facebook

Published

how-to-turn-off-political-ads-on-facebook

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.

It’s election year in the US, which means you’re probably going to see lots of political ads. While some social media platforms have banned them — such as Twitter — Facebook has yet to do so. But luckily, as of this June, it does offer an option to shut them off yourself.

Facebook‘s history with political ads, and politics in general, is a complicated and unpleasant one. Suffice to say the platform’s infamous for hosting a great deal of disinformation, much of it centered in the political sphere, and several ads have had some nasty imagery accompanying them. Word from Bloomberg and New York Times is that Facebook is considering banning political ads ahead of the next election, so it’s likely the company finds them as thorny and problematic as a lot of users do.

So if you want to take the initiative and remove political ads from Facebook yourself, here’s how you can do it.

First, you’ll need to use the Facebook app, as the settings are much easier to access there. Go to the settings menu under “Settings and Privacy” on the app’s menu. Once you’re there, find the Ad Preferences Setting.

Once you find that, tap on it and scroll until you find “Ad topics,” which will be listed under your interests. The Ad Topics in question are a motley collection, with alcohol, parenting, and pets being put on the same level as politics.

Select the ellipsis next to “Social Issues, Elections or Politics.” You’ll see the option to “See fewer ads on this topic.” Tap this. While it probably won’t completely eliminate political ads from your feed (Facebook doesn’t guarantee it will, hence the use of the word “fewer”), it’ll help cut down on what you do see.

And that’s it! Now you’ll see fewer political ads on Facebook. Good luck!

Pssst, hey you!

Apple reportedly planning two MacBooks with ARM processors for 2020

Published

apple-reportedly-planning-two-macbooks-with-arm-processors-for-2020

Prolific Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo is at it again with another prediction on Cupertino’s upcoming products. Specifically, Kuo believes Apple is planning to launch a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air with the newfangled chips as early as this year, as well as 14 and 16-inch Pros next year. In a research note, Kuo says(via MacRumors):

We predict that Apple will launch new MacBook models including the new 13.3-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ equipped with the ‌Apple Silicon‌ in 4Q20, the new ‌MacBook Air‌ equipped with the ‌Apple Silicon‌ in 4Q20 or 1Q21, and new 14- and 16-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ models equipped with the ‌Apple Silicon‌ and all-new form factor design in late 2Q21 or 3Q21.

Apple is also rumored to announce a redesigned iMac with a design more akin to the iPad Pro this year, although it probably won’t feature an ARM processor in 2020.

The company has developed an expertise in ARM processors since the inception of the iPhone, launching devices with processors that are often a generation ahead of competitors in performance while being more efficient to boot. At WWDC, the company claimed its silicon will both be more powerful and use less power than existing desktop processors, although the announcement was light on specifics.

Developers were offered a new Mac Mini featuring an A12Z Bionic process — essentially a tweaked iPad Pro chip — after WWDC. While we may see that chip in the new MacBook Air, being Apple’s entry-level laptop, we expect to see a big leap in performance on the new MacBook Pros, as those will have to compete with the existing Intel Models.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say — we’ll (hopefully) find out more later this year.

Far Cry 6 details leak, and our fingers are crossed for a female protagonist

Published

far-cry-6-details-leak,-and-our-fingers-are-crossed-for-a-female-protagonist

Ubisoft was apparently planning to reveal a new Far Cry game at its weekend E3 replacement event. Today, a leak gave away most of the major details about the game, including a look at the main villain. Ubisoft has also confirmed we’ll be seeing the game at the show.

We already suspected there was going to be a Far Cry game at this weekend’s event. Ubisoft allegedly has five games coming out this fiscal year — we could already account for Watch Dogs LegionAssassin’s Creed ValhallaRainbow Six: Quarantine, and Gods & Monsters. All we knew about the fifth game was that it was allegedly a new release in one of Ubisoft‘s major franchises. Far Cry is really the only other big series Ubisoft has that’s not already represented on that list. So here you go: Far Cry 6.

The game’s cover image and details leaked via the PlayStation Store, where a listing for the game appeared, presumably a few days ahead of schedule. The description that accompanied the picture describes the game thus:

Welcome to Yara, a tropical paradise frozen in time. As the dictator of Yara, Anton Castillo is intent on restoring his nation back to its former glory by any means, with his son, Diego, following in his bloody footsteps. Their ruthless oppression has ignited a revolution… Play as Dani Rojas, a local Yaran and become a guerrilla fighter to liberate the nation…

Wow, that sounds like it could almost be a description of a Just Cause game. When does Rico Fucking Rodriguez (yes, that’s his full legal name) show up with the hookshot to help Dani out?

All that said, I’m pleased that the player character will actually be a character this time around. After Far Cry 5 and New Dawn hamstrung their villains by making them menace faceless, mute player characters, we might finally get to see some more of that fun hero/villain interaction that makes Far Cry games so memorable. Also, with a name like Dani Rojas, I think there’s a good chance the hero could be a woman or at least have a selectable gender. I sure hope Dani’s a woman — it’d certainly add a new spin to things.

The other thing you’ll probably have already noticed is who they’ve cast as Anton Castillo: Emmy nominee Giancarlo Esposito. Ordinarily I’m not a fan of game characters made the face and voice of a well-known actor — the ability to unbind characters from what their actors look like is one of the things I love about games (and animation). In my humble opinion no game has thus far benefited from the inclusion of such an actor’s conspicuous presence, though I’m willing to revisit that when Cyberpunk 2077 comes out and we can see how much of that game actually features Keanu Reeves. That said, I’m willing to let the man who played Gus Fring have his shot at playing a great game villain, so we’ll have to see if he changes my mind.

Expect to see the game officially unveiled at Ubisoft‘s show this Sunday. If the PlayStation Store leak is accurate, it’ll be released on February 18, 2021.
