Comment: how ships can outwit piracy with AI

#artificialintelligence

Deep learning is on the frontline in a new age of piracy, outwitting attacks with pre-emptive tech, explains Yarden Gross, CEO and co-founder of Orca AI. Almost a decade has passed since piracy raged off Somalia, and yet the danger posed by maritime hijackings is as present as ever. The global pandemic last year sparked a resurgence of attacks, with piracy incidents doubling across Asia, in a worrying uptick also seen in the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa. The fallout from coronavirus, including the loss of key security personnel, turned quarantined vessels into easy targets. This wave has since receded a little, with the International Maritime Bureau reporting a 44 per cent YoY dip in piracy and armed robbery incidents in 2021.


High-tech virtual wall is the latest defense at the US-Mexico border

FOX News

Rep. August Pfluger joins'Fox & Friends First' and calls out Biden's handling of border crisis The feds have turned to cutting-edge cameras developed by a virtual reality wunderkind to help them monitor the southern border -- by creating an invisible border wall. The high-tech watch poles known as Autonomous Surveillance Towers are powered by solar energy and use artificial intelligence to detect movement along a two-mile radius, sending the information in real-time to agents patrolling the area. And they're now being installed at different points along the nearly 2,000 miles of the US-Mexico border. "The ASTs are in remote locations that are difficult to reach," Border Patrol agent Joel Freeland recently told The Post. "They operate 24-hours a day and are environmentally friendly because they rely entirely on solar power." The ASTs were developed by Palmer Luckey, the 28-year-old founder and designer of Oculus VR and Oculus Rift.


A robot will be the new employee of Palacio de Hierro

#artificialintelligence

Can you imagine walking through a store and being served by a robot? Something like this will happen in the electronics department of the Palacio de Hierro located in Polanco, Mexico City. A robot developed by Intel will be the department store's new advisor, it will help users choose computers and other electronic devices. The humanoid combines artificial intelligence with the internet of things and cloud services. The robot has the ability to answer common questions through its voice interaction, as well as profile what each user will need and move to the correct counter to show the customer the product.

Fox News Flash top headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com. Social media users branded a humorous wedding cake topper that highlighted a groom's love for video games as offensive, but the couple behind the requested figurines say that's not what they meant. Perla Blanco and Gerardo Martinez got married in late July after four years of dating. Their special day, which was celebrated in Monterrey, Mexico, with close family and friends, went viral on TikTok when their guest Leonardo Aceves shared a clip of their unique wedding cake.


Apple has a new app for collecting feedback on Siri

Engadget

While Apple may have released Siri before Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, in many ways its voice-activated assistant is the least advanced of the three. A lot of that has to do with the amount of data and training digital assistants need to understand different languages, dialects and speech patterns. In an effort to improve its digital assistant, Apple recently launched a study to collect speech data and feedback with the help of an app called Siri Speech Study. "The Siri Speech Study app allows participants to send certain data to Apple for product improvement, as detailed in the informed consent form," the company says in a listing spotted by TechCrunch. The software is available in the US, Canada, Germany, France, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand and Taiwan.


Mexico seeks to reinvent itself through Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Reinventing itself so as not to disappear, to that point of no return, the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) brought thousands of companies of all sizes and sectors in Mexico. In this scenario, O ne of the most disruptive technologies exploited to achieve digitalisation and economic growth was the Artificial Intelligence (AI). "The pandemic taught companies the importance of adopting technologies such as AI to digitize, improve the quality of care they provide to their customers, in their services and enhance the work generated by their collaborators, this while reducing costs and increasing their income ", says Israel Alejandro Cauich Viñas, founder and CEO of SoldAI . According to the Digital Transformation index, prepared by Dell Technology, it was announced that during 2020 Mexico experienced an important advance regarding digital transformation, since 52% of the companies surveyed in the Mexican Republic considered themselves part from the category "digital adopters", that is, companies that are already investing in innovation . Although Artificial Intelligence is not a new topic in the country, since it has been working on it since the 1950s, only in recent years has AI become the most powerful tool and the great ally of national companies so as not to be left behind in this digital revolution and, thus, to continue growing and being competent in the market. " Technological change in various industries today presents an unbeatable opportunity to position ourselves within countries at the forefront in the development and implementation of AI.


Mexican Artificial Intelligence startups with a global profile

#artificialintelligence

In recent years, Mexican startups have emerged considerably, so much so that many of them have become benchmarks not only in the region, but throughout the world. The reasons are various, from the enormous talent and potential that entrepreneurs have to exploit new digital technologies, to the geostrategic position that the country has. Another factor that has a favorable influence is that currently in Mexico there are various supports, coming from both the private and government sectors, that promote the emergence of innovative and technological service startups . And it is that for the national economy to continue growing, industries must have businesses that bet on innovation and that implement 4.0 technologies such as: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Robotics, Blockchain, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, among other. From emerging companies That focus on fintech, e-commerce and retail solutions, there are many Mexican Artificial Intelligence startups with a global profile .


Clustering by Maximizing Mutual Information Across Views

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

We propose a novel framework for image clustering that incorporates joint representation learning and clustering. Our method consists of two heads that share the same backbone network - a "representation learning" head and a "clustering" head. The "representation learning" head captures fine-grained patterns of objects at the instance level which serve as clues for the "clustering" head to extract coarse-grain information that separates objects into clusters. The whole model is trained in an end-to-end manner by minimizing the weighted sum of two sample-oriented contrastive losses applied to the outputs of the two heads. To ensure that the contrastive loss corresponding to the "clustering" head is optimal, we introduce a novel critic function called "log-of-dot-product". Extensive experimental results demonstrate that our method significantly outperforms state-of-the-art single-stage clustering methods across a variety of image datasets, improving over the best baseline by about 5-7% in accuracy on CIFAR10/20, STL10, and ImageNet-Dogs. Further, the "two-stage" variant of our method also achieves better results than baselines on three challenging ImageNet subsets.


On the Memorization Properties of Contrastive Learning

However, data labeling is often time-consuming and costly, as it involves human expertise. Thus, it is common for computer vision to pretrain DNNs vate improvements to DNN training approaches. A pioneer on some large labeled dataset, e. g. ImageNet (Russakovsky work of Zhang et al. (2017) showed that the capacity of et al., 2015), and then to fine-tune the model to a specific modern DNNs is sufficient to fit perfectly even randomly downstream task. The self-supervised learning paradigm labeled data. According to classic learning theory, such a provides a human labeling-free alternative to the supervised huge capacity should lead to catastrophic overfitting, however, pretraining: recently developed contrastive self-supervised recent works (Nakkiran et al., 2020) show that in methods show results, comparable to ImageNet pretraining practice increasing DNN capacity further improves generalization.
