Unbound: No 178 - Companies hope Super Bowl AI commercials and NFL's use of AI to prevent injuries revolutionize sports, while Louis Vuitton embraces blockchain for fine jewelry.

by Gael Cooper | CNet

Artificial intelligence continues to make its presence known in all sorts of ways. There's the FCC stepping in to ban AI-faked voices in robocalls; Paul McCartney using AI to create the final Beatles song; and a growing list of products you can use, from ChatGPT and Google's Gemini to special-purpose GPTs. AI showed up at Sunday's Super Bowl as well, in some of the highly anticipated commercials airing during the championship game, which the Kansas City Chiefs won 25-22 in overtime against the San Francisco 49ers.

As injuries continue to play a critical role in the sport of football, the NFL's "digital athlete" initiative uses artificial intelligence to study players' movements in hopes of avoiding player injuries.

NFL SVP of Health and Safety Innovation Jennifer Langton broke down how the data collection process works during an exclusive appearance on "The Claman Countdown," Monday, saying that the technology is "the first" of its kind.

"It is a first. It is a partnership with AWS. And we've always called it the next generation of player health and safety at the NFL. What it does is the technology itself uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to create a precise picture of each player. And when I say each player, it's the players' experience in training, practice and game," Langton explained to FOX Business' Liz Claman.

Reaffirming the maison’s bullish investment in emerging technologies, Louis Vuitton’s latest LV Diamonds fine jewelry collection has tapped the Aura Blockchain Consortium for its new digital certificates.

Following the blockchain’s meteoric rise and subsequent fall from grace, organizations like the Aura Blockchain Consortium are desperate to win back consumer trust

Spiral Galaxy NGC 4254’s Dazzling Swirls

It’s oh-so-easy to be mesmerized by this spiral galaxy. Follow its clearly defined arms, which are brimming with stars, to its center, where there may be old star clusters and – sometimes – active supermassive black holes. NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope delivered highly detailed scenes of this and other nearby spiral galaxies in a combination of near- and mid-infrared light.

NGC 4254, a spiral galaxy, is resplendent in orange and blue in this Jan. 29, 2024, image from the James Webb Space Telescope. This is one of 19 nearby spiral galaxies recently imaged by the telescope as part of the long-standing Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS) program supported by more than 150 astronomers worldwide.

Webb’s Near-Infrared Camera captured millions of stars in these images, which sparkle in blue tones, while the telescope’s Mid-Infrared Instrument data highlights glowing dust, showing us where it exists around and between stars.

Explore the intricacies of spiral galaxies in this deep dive.
