And there are many of them. As life expectancy hovers around 79 years, the number of individuals age 65 and older in the U.S. alone is projected to more than double from 46 million today to over 98 million by 2060, according to the Population Reference Bureau. The facilities to care for them are also proliferating. According to the National Institute on Aging (as of 2015) there are about 4.7 million senior citizens using home-health care; 730,000 in assisted living facilities, and 1.4 million in nursing homes. The majority of seniors say they would like to see more services available to help them adapt their homes for their developing needs.

Artificial Intelligence: How Much Are You Affected By It?

#artificialintelligence

Have you ever wondered what AI or Artificial Intelligence is all about? It's the deliberate reprogramming of the human race to think and to act according to controllers who want to have absolute control over every aspect of our abilities to think and to act other than the way they approve and program us to act! Is that happening already with some of the counter-culture crimes in order to steer humans into a'mental slave corral'? Following are excerpts taken from the source link below, which indicates certain aspects of where the NWO controllers are directing the future of humankind into becoming technological slaves to Artificial Intelligence, which most tech-addicted humans are not aware of, in my opinion. CG are the initials for Corey Goode, a person who worked with high tech and had extremely highly classified credentials, as I understand, which included interactions with extraterrestrial beings of higher intelligence than we, who are working with the U.S. tech companies and government agencies on ET projects.


Subcutaneous Fitbits? These cows are modeling the tracking technology of the future

MIT Technology Review

Somewhere on a dairy farm in Wellsville, Utah, are three cyborg cows, indistinguishable from the rest of the herd. Just like the other cows, they eat, drink, and chew their cud. Occasionally, they walk over to a big, spinning red-and-black brush, suspended at bovine back height, for a scratch. But while the rest of the cows just get their scratch and move on, these cows deliver data. Trackers implanted in their bodies use low-energy Bluetooth to ping a nearby base station and transfer information about the cows' chewing frequency, temperature, and general rambling around the farm.


TensorFlow 1.X Recipe for Supervised & Unsupervised Learning

@machinelearnbot

Deep Learning models often perform significantly better than traditional machine learning algorithms in many tasks. This course consists of hands-on recipes to use deep learning in the context of supervised and unsupervised learning tasks. After covering the basics of working with TensorFlow, it shows you how to perform the traditional machine learning tasks in supervised learning: regression and classification. This course also covers how to perform unsupervised learning using cutting-edge techniques from Deep Learning. To address many different use cases, this product presents recipes for both the low-level API (TensorFlow core) as well as the high-level APIs (tf.contrib.lean


Artificial Intelligence is Changing the Game for Marketing

The successful sports apparel company, Under Armor, teamed up with IBM to produce the UA Record app in 2016. The app is powered by IBM Watson, an artificial intelligence program with cognitive computing technology, in order to track and analyze a person's workouts, nutrition and sleeping habits. According to IBM's press release, the Record app, "will serve as a personal health consultant, fitness trainer and assistant by providing athletes with timely, evidence-based coaching around your sleep, fitness, activity and nutrition, including outcomes achieved based on others "like you."


Beyoncé Is Using Artificial Intelligence To Help You Eat Vegan

#artificialintelligence

Beyonce is at the top of her game, and diet has a lot to do with it. Recently, Beyoncé gave her first major public performance since giving birth to twins. Forty-four days before her Coachella performance, she announced via Instagram that she was going vegan ahead of the show. She also changed the link on her Instagram bio (apparently for the first time) to her new vegan meal planner so others could eat like her as she prepared for the event. And it seems that her decision to go vegan paid off.

Why Alexa's Next Big Move Is Into Health Care

Slate

Health care is a $3 trillion a year industry, and tech companies such as Amazon are vying for a slice of it. In January, the e-commerce giant announced a partnership with JPMorgan and Berkshire Hathaway to "revolutionize health care." Chiefly, this joint partnership would work toward developing a less costly health care network for their employees, but the exact aims and methods are otherwise vague. It's also been rumored periodically that Amazon might enter the pharmaceutical business. Now, reports suggest Amazon is interested in building health care applications directly into its virtual assistant, Alexa.


Amazon is building a 'health & wellness’ team within Alexa as it aims to upend health care

USATODAY

The nucleus of Amazon's effort to upend the health-care market may very well be the Echo device in your living room. According to an internal document obtained by CNBC, Amazon has built a team within its Alexa voice-assistant division called "health & wellness," which includes over a dozen people and is being led by Rachel Jiang, who has spent the last five years at Amazon in various roles including advertising and video. The team's main job is to make Amazon's Alexa voice assistant more useful in the health-care field, an effort that requires working through regulations and data privacy requirements laid out by HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), according to people familiar with the matter. The group is targeting areas like diabetes management, care for mothers and infants and aging, said the people, who asked not to be named because the work is confidential. Echo/Alexa opens up a new sales channel for Amazon.
