  • Despite launching the PSVR headset in 2016, no PS5-dedicated headset has been announced

Even as he prepares to launch a new console, Sony PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan is not doubling down on virtual reality playing a significant part in gaming in the immediate future.

“I think we’re more than a few minutes from the future of VR,” Ryan said.

The Next Generation Of Artificial Intelligence (Part 2)

For the first part of this article series, see here.

The field of artificial intelligence moves fast. It has only been 8 years since the modern era of deep learning began at the 2012 ImageNet competition. Progress in the field since then has been breathtaking and relentless.

If anything, this breakneck pace is only accelerating. Five years from now, the field of AI will look very different than it does today. Methods that are currently considered cutting-edge will have become outdated; methods that today are nascent or on the fringes will be mainstream.

What will the next generation of artificial intelligence look like? Which novel AI approaches will unlock currently unimaginable possibilities in technology and business?

My previous column covered three emerging areas within AI that are poised to redefine the field—and

No. But will it come at some stage? We believe that.” He notes that the upcoming PlayStation 5, which will be released November 12th, supports the old PlayStation VR headset with a special adapter.

Last Friday, Xbox Brazil video host Isadora Basile announced that Microsoft had severed ties with her. In a tweet, she said she’d been regularly harassed by members of the local Xbox community since being hired in early September, and that that mistreatment was part of the decision to end her contract.

Kotaku has been in contact with Basile throughout the week to learn more about the situation.

“At the end of the day, it seems I became too much of a problem,” Basile explained to Kotaku via email. She said that she had been supported by Xbox Brazil during some tough times, but understood that her dismissal was partially informed by fan abuse.

Microsoft, after initially not acknowledging the harassment in two statements since last week, was quoted by IGN today as saying that Basile’s firing was “unrelated” to the harassment.
