Saildrone — the latest in autonomous technology

1*HLrSB9Pf91NlrjOqqNsghA.jpeg

From El Nino to ice movement in the Arctic, deep complexities in the ocean have long perplexed researchers. Limited not only by the spatial and temporal resolution of available data, but also by the vastness of the ocean itself, we have only scraped the surface of potential information to be gathered from beyond the horizon. One of my friends once put it to me this way, “the amount that we know about the ocean is similar to if we had been exploring North America, only at night, with a flashlight,” and he was probably right. The amount that we know about the ocean pales in comparison to what we don’t know.

Enter Saildrone - an autonomous unmanned surface vehicle or USV, designed to deploy in harsh environments and collect high resolution forecast measurements. Past technology mainly relied on buoys that were expensive to install and maintain. Buoys are also stationary, living out their life tied to one location while serving data to inform forecasts. Saildrone creates a new opportunity with a small fleet of boats that collect data in areas of particular interest for weather forecasts. Think of the NOAA hurricane hunters airplane, but on the surface of the ocean. Saildrone can head into brutal conditions and improve our ability to predict weather events.

How Smart is Artificial Intelligence?

How Smart is Artificial Intelligence?

A recent article challenges the humanization of AI and machine learning; let’s reconsider comparisons with human abilities

 What do we mean by ? In 1994 the  published a definition which reflected the consensus of 52 leading academic researchers in fields associated with intelligence: “Intelligence is a very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts.

Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings — ‘catching on,’ ‘making sense’ of things, or ‘figuring out’ what to do.” This is a very good definition of — the kind of intelligence that’s long been measured in IQ tests, and that, for the foreseeable future, only humans have.

What’s Happening Down There? New Aerial Video Event Recognition Dataset and DL Benchmark

1*swuwrZze_CJLGFxdiLN95A.png

It took humans hundreds of thousands of years to figure out how to fly. But long before aircraft were developed, cultures had already formed the concept of a “bird’s-eye view.” In recent years technology has democratized the bird’s-eye view and flown our vision beyond imagination. The question is timeless: What’s happening down there?

Thanks to quadcopters, GoPros, and YouTube, there is now plenty of available UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) video data. In the aftermath of earthquakes and floods, UAVs are used for estimating damage and delivering aid in areas too dangerous or difficult for human responders to access. UAVs are used to monitor wildlife in remote areas, while urban planners and other city officials, etc. use UAV cityscape data to better understand changing local environments. And of course, countless videographers and hobbyists regularly record and upload their UAV flights.

Is the Smart City a Good City?

Is the Smart City a Good City?

All our cities have to become, or have already become, smart cities; this is the consensus today. Nevertheless, what is a “smart city”? If one does not know the discourse, one might think that smart city means smart in the sense of “intelligent”, perhaps even of intelligent citizens. However, this is not what smart cities are. Smart city actually means the information technology (IT) city. The smart city uses IT to enhance the quality and performance of urban services, to reduce some costs and resource consumption, and — at least theoretically — to engage more effectively and actively with the citizens. Additionally, as human life gravitates towards the cities, “smart city” has become an umbrella term for life during the IT techno-economic paradigm generally.

But when is the smart city a good city?

AI 50: America’s Most Promising Artificial Intelligence Companies

1920x0.jpg?fit=scale

forbes.com -

Artificial intelligence is infiltrating every industry, allowing vehicles to navigate without drivers, assisting doctors with medical diagnoses, and mimicking the way humans speak. But for all the authentic and exciting ways it’s transforming the tasks computers can perform, there’s a lot of hype, too. 

As Jeremy Achin, CEO of newly minted unicorn DataRobot, puts it: “Everyone knows you have to have machine learning in your story or you’re not sexy.”

The inherently broad term gets bandied about so often that it can start to feel meaningless and gets trotted out by companies to gussy up even simple data analysis. To help cut through the noise, Forbes and data partner Meritech Capital put together a list of private, U.S.-based companies that are wielding some subset of artificial intelligence in a meaningful way and demonstrating real business potential from doing so. One makes robots that can whir around shoppers to help workers restock shelves. Another scans recruiting pitches for unconscious bias. A third analyzes massive data sets to make street-by-street weather predictions.

 Wikipedia Preview Links

MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory taps AI and machine learning to correct and update outdated Wikipedia articles

The English-language Wikipedia contains over 6 million articles, and the combined versions for all other languages exceed 28 billion words over 52 million articles in 309 languages. Wikipedia’s an incomparably valuable resource for knowledge seekers, but it requires constant pruning by the over 132,000 registered active monthly editors.

In search of an autonomous solution, researchers at MIT have developed an system that uses AI and machine learning to address inconsistencies in Wikipedia articles. Thanks to a family of algorithms, it’s able to identify errors and update the articles as needed, using the latest information from around the web to produce revised sentences.

States, Actions, Rewards — The Intuition behind Reinforcement Learning

0*4Mchj4nBdu2a0hva.png

In 2014, Google acquired a British startup named DeepMind for half a billion dollars. A steep price, but the investment seems to have paid off many times over just from the publicity that DeepMind generates. ML researchers know DeepMind for its frequent breakthroughs in the field of deep reinforcement learning. But the company has also captured the attention of the general public, particularly due its successes in building an algorithm to play the game of Go. Considering the frequency with which DeepMind makes progress in the field — AlphaGo, AlphaGo Zero and AlphaZero in the last couple of years — it becomes hard to keep track of what exactly is happening, both at a technical level and from the point of view of implications. I plan to do just that — provide a high-level view of DeepMind’s successes in Go, and explain the distinctions between the different versions of AlphaGo that they have produced.

But first, for context, I’d like to give a overview of reinforcement learning (RL) in general, and that is what the rest of this particular post is dedicated to.

How Does Facial Recognition Really Work?

How Does Facial Recognition Really Work?

1*Nl-H3eRueex7dyWR0IBlpw.png

How does Artificial Intelligence (AI) work with identity verification? How does facial recognition work and is there a human overseeing?

We get a lot of feedback and questions when customers are looking to choose an identity verification provider. These are things like how does Artificial Intelligence (AI) work with Identity verification? How does facial recognition work and is there a human overseeing the process?

Let’s Start With The Face

Identity verification providers look at a wide array of data to make a claim for identity. But, the most important point is to start with the face. It is unique and genuine to all humans, allowing strong conclusions to be made.

For an image analysis, the computer starts by locating a human face in the field and returns all sorts of “face-related” data. Once a face is detected, the next level of processing is defining the “face landmarks.” Which is exactly what it sounds like. The computer analyzes 27 points like the pupil, tip of the nose and eyebrows (Ex.1).

How AI Engineer will transform the face of education in future

1*Wjn-TwgyepdRrWNRqJupgQ.jpeg

With an emphasis on interactive learning and creating personalised education model, artificial intelligence is relied upon to make education progressively effective and fun, writes Sachin Dev Duggal, CEO of Engineer.ai

In recent years, innovation has changed the manner in which we see the reality of our world. Be it associating with individuals over the world via social media, shopping garments from an online store or having food supplies conveyed directly at our doorstep, today, human endurance sans innovation is simply unimaginable.

Through these years, science fiction, authors, futurists, and movie makers the same have additionally been foreseeing the astonishing (and some of the time disastrous) changes that will emerge with advent of widespread artificial intelligence (AI) — saw as the ‘subsequent stage in human development’. Those not so much acquainted with AI may imagine a future loaded with robots that behave like humans. However, in truth,, AI is nothing but advanced algorithms assisting machines in impersonating human behaviour, particularly in excess errands across industries. With so broad an impact, education makes certain to be touched by AI but the question is how?

The Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is an emerging technology that is widely focused by several countries and societies, with the potential to disrupt conventional models every industry. The decentralized system of blockchain technology is in contrast to the centralized systems of operation in use today. The blockchain technology uses a form of decentralized database architecture, where the record and authentication of certain operations are dependent upon the agreement of several parties rather than a single authority. This makes the blockchain technology, compared to the centralized technologies, safer, faster, and more transparent for everyone.

Top digital transformation trends for 2020

Top digital transformation trends for 2020

1*OjpoUw-lm-bf2xpvZ5XDWA.jpeg

Looking back at the last decade of digital transformation, no one can argue that the way to transform businesses through digital drastically shifted. The early 2010s saw numerous projects on system of engagement implementation, zero paper model adoption, cloud migrations, and middleware layer creation to continue to get value out of legacy systems. While delivering business value through technology, all these projects also aimed to tame Agile methodologies and DevOps in order to reduce delivery risks and time to market.

Nowadays these types of projects are simply foundational — and won’t be enough to give a competitive edge. With a shorter time-to-value expectation and the proliferation of solutions, it becomes more and more complex to navigate a roadmap definition exercise.

As mobile carriers roll out 5G, Edge computing will progressively become the norm, boosting adoption of IoT and beginning a new wave of products.
