Lush opens the world's first language-free concept store in Japan - Inside Retail Asia

#artificialintelligence

Foreign Lush customers in Japan can now shop without language barriers as the brand launches the first language-free concept store in Shinjuku district. By using AI technology, the UK cosmetics retailer helps its customers enjoy their retail experience without words as they use digital functions, including interactive walls and app-controlled lighting, to locate and choose their favourite products. "Shinjuku represents the ultimate version of what we want from a shop. Importantly, it was the first time our tech warriors and brand and shop design teams collaborated to create a retail space in a digital age," said Adam Goswell, tech R&D manager at Lush. Besides being its first language-free concept store, Lush Shinjuku is also its largest store in Asia, spreading over four floors with its signature fragrant goods.


Real-World Examples – How AI is Revolutionizing Top Industries

#artificialintelligence

In Japan's FANUC plant robots are producing robots and they outnumber people. Robots are beating humans in intelligence games, reading and writing pop songs. They are driving us to our chosen destinations and are on their way to become doctors, engineers, scientists, songwriters and painters. Never ever in history, the boundaries between fact and fiction were so thin. By 2030 AI will add an additional $15.7 trillion to the global economy.


Workers trust AI more than human managers

#artificialintelligence

Workers place more trust in robots and AI than their managers according to the second annual AI at Work study conducted by Oracle and Future Workplace. To compile the study, the two firms surveyed 8,370 employees, managers and HR leaders across 10 countries to find that AI has changed the relationship between people and technology in the workplace and is reshaping the role HR teams and managers need to play when it comes to attracting, retaining and developing talent. In contrast to common fears that AI and robots will take workers jobs, the AI at Work study found that employees, managers and HR leaders across the globe are reporting increased adoption of AI in the workplace and many are welcoming the emerging technology with enthusiasm. AI is becoming more prominent in workplaces with 50 percent of workers currently using some form of AI at work compared to only 32 percent last year. Workers in China (77%) and India (78%) have adopted AI over two times more than those in France (32%) and Japan (29%).


Machine Beats Man

#artificialintelligence

You probably picture robots as clodhoppers: ponderous, clunky, even doddery droids that need caffeine, badly. But robots are on the brink of making giant strides. Just ask Columbia University engineering professor Hod Lipson, who writes in Nature that "young animals gallop across fields, climb trees, and immediately find their feet with grace after they fall"--and robots are set to follow suit. A new breed of speedy robots promises to eventually outdo the runners at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Notable cybernetic contenders include MIT's dominant Cheetah, Boston Dynamics' Petman and Handle, Michigan Robotics' MABEL, and--further afield in South Africa--the University of Cape Town's Baleka. Plus, that efficiency-geared Florida University powerhouse, the Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IHMC), fields a smart, sensor-free biped plainly called Planar Elliptical Runner (PER).


MHIQ Program Seminar Series Healthcare Practice and Survivorship - Reactive and Passive Multisensory Brain-computer Interfaces for Communication or Dementia Biomarkers Elucidation

#artificialintelligence

The presentation will introduce contemporary brain-computer interface (BCI) techniques. Dr Rutkowski will explain auditory, visual, and tactile reactive BCI examples with applications for communication and passive solutions for cognitive-load/dementia biomarker elucidation. He will also discuss future research directions of the so-called neurotechnology applications for healthcare and especially cognitive monitoring solutions. Tomasz Rutkowski received his M.Sc. in Electronics and Ph.D. in Telecommunications and Acoustics from Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland, in 1994 and 2002, respectively. He received postdoctoral training at the Multimedia Laboratory, Kyoto University, and in 2005-2011 he worked as a research scientist at RIKEN Brain Science Institute, Japan.


Study Says 64% of People Trust a Robot More Than Their Manager

#artificialintelligence

Workers in India (89%) and China (88%) are more trusting of robots over their managers, followed by Singapore (83%), Brazil (78%), Japan (76%), UAE (74%), Australia/New Zealand (58%), the U.S. (57%), the U.K. (54%), and France (56%). More men (56%) than women (44%) have turned to AI over their managers.


AI system to help docs spot brain aneuriysms NHK WORLD-JAPAN News

#artificialintelligence

Japan's health ministry has approved the use of a revolutionary piece of artificial intelligence software to help identify brain aneurysms. It is the first time they have approved a deep learning program for use as medical equipment. The system was developed by a Tokyo venture firm called LPIXEL which develops AI software to analyze images. Their EIRL program can process MRI images and flag suspected aneurysms. It also has the ability to learn by itself and keep improving.


CEATEC 2019 features driverless shuttle bus and avatar tech among exhibits

The Japan Times

CHIBA – A compact driverless bus on Tuesday slowly shuttled a dozen passengers on public roads near the Makuhari Messe convention center in the city of Chiba to give them a sense of the steering wheel- and pedal-free future of transport. One of the passengers, Noriyuki Sakayanagi, was amazed at the distance the bus traveled without a human driver. "It wasn't scary" to ride the bus on a public road, said Sakayanagi, who was attending the first day of CEATEC 2019, one of Japan's biggest international digital trade shows that this year marks its 20th anniversary. Sakayanagi, a 39-year-old company worker, added, "I thought more improvement in detecting traffic lights may be needed and the brakes were not so smooth." CEATEC organizers said this year's four-day event has brought together 787 exhibitors from a broad spectrum of sectors -- not only information technology and electronics but also finance, housing, travel and health care -- with a vision toward a supersmart society designed to further economic growth and solve social problems.
