GE Working on Robot That It Says Can Save $200 Billion of Power


General Electric Co. is working on a way to use artificial intelligence in electricity grids, a technology that it expects will save $200 billion globally by improving efficiency. "We're also putting a lot into the machine learning side, a lot," said Steven Martin, chief digital officer at GE's energy connections business, at an interview at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance summit in London. This is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the grid and save consumers money. Researchers are looking into how so-called machine learning can be integrated into businesses from healthcare to computing, and now energy.

Ring Video Doorbell 2 review: Higher res and easier to recharge, but just as bulky

Popular Science

Ring's second-generation video doorbell adds a quick release rechargeable battery and boosts video resolution from 720p to 1080p. It remains one of the only video doorbells that can provide its own power instead of relying on your home's existing wiring. Like the previous version we tested, we set up the Ring Video Doorbell 2 in its wireless configuration, mounting the unit in the same, somewhat awkward, location outside our front door. Once again, we tested the video doorbell with the Chime Pro, a $49 plug-in chime and Wi-Fi range extender that boosts the Ring's network signal and provides its own sonic alerts when someone rings your doorbell.

LG Electronics sets up AI division: Yonhap - The Mainichi


South Korean tech powerhouse LG Electronics Inc. said Sunday it has set up two research centers to develop technologies related to artificial intelligence, Yonhap News Agency reported. One center will focus on developing AI and the other robotics, it said. The AI center will focus on developing technologies applicable to LG Electronics' home appliance lineup, smartphones and automobile parts, while the robotics center will focus on developing "core technologies of smart robotics," Yonhap reported.

Ring Video Doorbell review

Popular Science

Like most other smart doorbells, Ring lets you see who's at your door and interact with your guests before letting them in. Since our test home doesn't have built-in doorbell wiring, we chose the wireless installation option. That's partly due to our unique front door situation, and partly due to the Ring's 5-by-2.4-by-1-inch The former was too thin to serve as an adequate base, while the latter were too short to accommodate the Ring's entire length. Our review unit came with the Chime Pro, a $49 chime/Wi-Fi range extender that, once plugged into an outlet, boosts the Ring's network signal and amplifies the sound of the doorbell alerts.

Forget Autopilot, the Self-Driving VW Sedric Boasts Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality - TechEBlog


Forget autopilot, the VW Sedric is a self-driving pod car with absolutely no pedals, a steering wheel, or even a cockpit for that matter. At the push of a button, the vehicle transports its passengers to their desired location using the most efficient route(s). "Sedric is a purely electric car, with a battery pack located flat between its axles and the compact electric motor at the wheels. The AI system is located in the compact overhangs at both the front and rear of the pod, and the rider can communicate with the vehicle via a push-button remote to indicate the time at which Sedric should arrive.

Single-wheeled GeoBlade electric skateboard is straight out of a sci-fi movie


Bigler said they're aiming to sell the GeoBlade for no more than $1,500, less than half the cost of the most expensive Hoverboard model. In fact, Bigler and Hoverboard Technologies are doubling down on safety on the GeoBlade by making its batteries removable. The GeoBlade's has slots for two removable batteries, each good for up to 10 miles of range. Instead of using a built-in rechargeable battery like the Hoverboard had, the GeoBlade has slots for two removable batteries, each capable of providing up to 10 to 20 miles of range in total.

GE seeks to simplify the industrial IoT's mind-blowing complexity


Stone, who is general manager of asset performance management at GE Digital, recently spoke with theCUBE's Jeff Frick (@JeffFrick) at GE Digital's Innovation Day 2016 about the complex problems GE engineers are solving as the Internet of things moves into the industrial mainstream. Sensors will enable solar equipment operators to diagnose precisely when and where repairs need to be made so they can dispatch service people with the right skills at the right time, preventing failures and lowering service costs. "We have decades of experience connecting to machinery, providing advanced control systems and bringing that data back for analytics," Stone said. That's why GE is doing a lot of work with artificial intelligence and machine learning to apply statistical principles to the data its customers gather.
