Silicon Valley Insider: Intellihot, using AI and NASA Technology to Provide You Hot Water - Impakter

#artificialintelligence

Have you ever been running late for work, your hand extended into your shower, cursing its name as the water slowly warms to a temperature that would allow you to enter? Well, you may be being unsympathetic to your hot water heater, because it's likely running all day and all night to keep between 40-80 gallons of water heated, so it can be ready at your command. As you ponder the inefficiency of such a system, imagine the hot water needs of a hotel or a high-rise apartment building, with hundreds of rooms and thousands of inhabitants. The founder in this week's Silicon Valley Insider, Sridhar Deivasigamani, estimates that at any point in time in the US, there could be as much as 6 billion gallons of water being kept hot for our consumption, one-sixth the size of Lake Tahoe. Intellihot, the Galesburg, IL company founded in 2009, designs and manufactures tankless water heaters, as well as monitoring devices and apps, for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

Company using artificial intelligence to detect cancer earlier

#artificialintelligence

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Behind every mammogram Dr. Lisa Watanabe looks at is a woman waiting, and hoping, for good news. Dr. Watanbe is a radiologist, and the Chief Medical Officer for CureMetrix, an artificial intelligence (AI) technology company focused on early breast cancer detection. Their FDA-cleared software is able to learn, using millions of mammograms, to identify, mark, and score anomalies. "Cancers that were missed by a radiologist were detected by the machine, some of them weren't even small, sometimes they were just obscured by dense tissue," said Dr. Watanabe. She says the technology has found breast cancer up to five years earlier than it was found by the human radiologist.


How the 'California effect' could shape a global approach to ethical AI

#artificialintelligence

In response to the serious threat that AI-enabled bots and deepfakes pose for election integrity, the California government has pushed forward progressive pieces of legislation that have influenced federal and international efforts. Passed in 2018, the "Bots Disclosure Act" makes it unlawful to use a bot to influence a commercial transaction or a vote in an election without disclosure in California. This includes bots deployed by companies in other states and countries, which requires those companies to either develop bespoke standards for Californian residents or harmonize their strategies across jurisdictions to maintain efficiency. At the federal level, the "Bots Disclosure and Accountability Act" includes many of the same strategies proposed in California. The California "Anti-Deepfakes Bill" seeks to mitigate the spread and impact of malicious political deepfakes before an election and the federal "Deepfakes Accountability Act" seeks to do the same.

Artificial Intelligence: Salaries Heading Skyward - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence salaries benefit from the perfect recipe for a sweet paycheck: a hot field and high demand for scarce talent. It's the ever-reliable law of supply and demand, and right now, anything artificial intelligence-related is in very high demand. According to Indeed.com, the average IT salary -- the keyword is "artificial intelligence engineer" -- in the San Francisco area ranges from approximately $134,135 per year for "software engineer" to $169,930 per year for "machine learning engineer." However, it can go much higher if you have the credentials firms need. One tenured professor was offered triple his $180,000 salary to join Google, which he declined for a different teaching position.


Artificial intelligence and chemistry compute at Lanxess

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) isn't magic, it's just really complicated math, said Greg Mulholland, CEO and founder of Citrine Informatics (Redwood City, CA), at a press roundtable hosted by Lanxess (Cologne, Germany) at K 2019. But Mulholland's hosts seemed quite bedazzled by his AI-enabled platform, nonetheless. Lanxess is the first company to adopt Citrine's technology at scale, and Dr. Markus Eckert, Senior Vice President, Head of Business Unit Urethane Systems at Lanxess was eager to explain what it means for customers. Citrine is a Silicon Valley startup that couldn't be more niche: It has developed a platform that leverages data and AI specifically to accelerate the development of materials and chemicals. Citrine has been recognized for technology innovation by the World Economic Forum as a Tech Pioneer, and collaborates with world-class academic institutions such as Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and the University of California, Berkeley.


The threat of AI-powered cyberattacks looms large

#artificialintelligence

With damage related to cybercrime projected to hit $6 trillion annually by 2021, enterprises are putting more emphasis than ever on securing their digital and organizational assets. While rudimentary machine learning has played a role in cyber threats for some years, today there's talk of the looming threat of malicious AI: AI-powered cyber-attacks capable of causing massive damage worldwide without the involvement of human operators. To better understand the threats and opportunities presented by AI in the cyber security space, we went to the AI Summit San Francisco to catch up with Justin Fier, director of cyber intelligence and analytics at Darktrace – the company putting AI to work on cyber defense. Justin's background is in the US intelligence community, and today works with Darktrace's global customers on threat analysis, defensive cyber operations, IoT security, and machine learning.
