GIS and Spatial Analytics market to touch US$88.3 Billion by 2020!


Geography, enriched by information systems to form the Geographic Information System or GIS, is growing exponentially. A core geospatial technology, the GIS is used virtually in every field, adding value to practically every business segment and application areas. In text, the genesis of GIS platforms (solutions/software) lies in capturing, analyzing, and presenting spatial and non-spatial information as effective visualizations. In reality, the segment is much more! The segment includes fast-growth engineering, and construction project designs, 3D Modeling with spatial data.

Artificial Intelligence in finance can help explore greener pastures


NEW DELHI: The adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in different sectors, be it e-commerce, healthcare and banking services, has helped the businesses to scale up their efficiency rate and deliver products that are widely accepted. A similar trend can be seen in the personal finance space, where companies are increasingly leveraging on AI and machine learning to minimise risk and provide a better return. Though still at a nascent stage, the road ahead for decoding market trends based on previous data by creating algorithms is only expected to increase. Jimeet Modi, Founder and CEO, SAMCO Securities, said that the trend is very much beginning to pick up, and the next generation of businesses will increasingly use tools like AI and machine learning in various aspects of businesses."When However, in the next five years or so, it's acceptance will incarese rapidly in India," Modi told The New Indian Express.

Artificial Intelligence - investing in the future


ARTIFICIAL Intelligence (AI) may be the buzz word today, but it is certainly not a new field as it has been developed over the last 50 years. Yet, it is now becoming mainstream, thanks to bigger data, faster computers and smarter algorithms. Defined as the simulation of human intelligence by machines, AI is quite different from software programs in that it extracts knowledge from data without being specifically programmed. AI enables computer systems to perform tasks that normally requires human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech-recognition, decision-making and translation. AI is a set of software tools and algorithms that can be embedded in hardware products or software platforms.

Now, Indian Railways to use Artificial Intelligence to control air circulation


While Indian Railways is already using this technique to detect flaws or problems in the signalling system, the national transporter will now reportedly use artificial intelligence (AI) to control air circulation, signages, supervision and maintenance work in the 10.28 km-long tunnel in Imphal, the capital of Manipur. This is part of Indian Railways' 110-km line Jiribam to Imphal project. The Artificial Intelligence system will control air circulation and alert the passenger in case of fire. This tunnel has reportedly a safety spot every 500 meters. "In case of an accident or any mishap, passengers have to go 500 meters into the safety tunnel and through signages find their way out," Yogesh Verma, deputy chief, construction, Northeast Frontier Railway told PTI.

Prosthetic arm points California deputies to 3 burglary suspects

FOX News

Investigators in California were pointed in the right direction when a prosthetic arm that was reported stolen last week was spotted in the alleged thieves' car. Investigators in California were pointed in the right direction after a prosthetic arm that was reported stolen last week was spotted in the alleged burglars' car, leading to arrests. An officer with the Grass Valley Police Department on Wednesday came across the suspects -- identified by the Nevada County Sheriff's Office as Michael Martin, Emma St. Claire and Mike Mulligan -- and searched their car. Mike Mulligan, left, Michael Martin and Emma St. Claire were booked at a correction facility in California for suspicion of burglary and possession of stolen property. Law enforcement officials uncovered the prosthetic limb -- which the sheriff's office described in a Facebook post as "the exact arm that was stolen in the burglary."

Nvidia researchers create AI, deep-learning system to enable robots to learn from human demonstration


Nvidia researchers have created a deep-learning system that can teach a robot simply by observing a human's actions. According to Nvidia, the deep learning and artificial intelligence method is designed to improve robot-human communication and allow them to collaborate. The paper will be presented at a conference in Brisbane, Australia. Researchers trained neural networks powered by Nvidia's Titan X GPUs. The neural networks incorporated perception, program generation and ultimate execution.

Didi redesigns car-pooling service in China after death of female passenger


Chinese car-hailing platform Didi Chuxing has quietly resumed its car-pooling services at the weekend, with major functions undergoing a redesign, aimed at ensuring the safety of passengers. The service has been halted since May 12 after a 21-year-old flight attendant reportedly died at the hands of a 26-year-old driver in China's Henan province on May 6. The flight attendant had booked a ride through Didi and was allegedly killed by the driver who was also found dead in a river by police, according to Chinese news reports. There are some things that machines are simply better at doing than humans, but humans still have plenty going for them. Here's a look at how the two are going to work in concert to deliver a more powerful future for IT, and the human race.

FPT Software floats trial of self-driving cars - Vietnam Insider


FPT Software has asked the Ministry of Transport and relevant sectors for permission to operate self-driving autos in hi-tech zones and software parks nationwide on an experimental basis. FPT said it had studied the self-driving technology from 2016 to October 31, 2017, before announcing the first self-driving vehicle in Viet Nam. The company had been operating trams in central Da Nang City (around F-Complex, FPT Software Da Nang) and self-driving cars around FPT Software HCM City. The self-driving vehicles have a speed of 20-25kmph on an average and can reach up to 40kmph in a straight direction. It can self-align, turn in line and avoid obstacles or tripping when needed.
