Have you ever imagined a technology that would replace all repetitive jobs and relieve humans from performing heavy labor? Artificial intelligence is a technological blow that has continued to take the world by storm since 1955. The advent of the internet has helped this technology progress exponentially, and that it is now advancing exponentially. It is streamlined with widespread sub-technologies and applications ranging from biometrics and computer vision to intelligent devices and self-driving cars. Many predictions have been made about what new advances are expected in the field of artificial intelligence.


Overview of Types of AI

#artificialintelligence

So, what is artificial intelligence? Artificial intelligence is the overarching name for a branch of computer science that deals with smart machines or robots that can think and perform tasks like a human. In artificial intelligence you can teach a computer to learn and make its own decisions. AI is the broad concept of machines being able to carry out tasks in a way that we would consider'smart', and we encounter these technologies on a daily basis: from voice assistants in our home, to Netflix recommendations or autonomous cars. AI relies on data and on training algorithms.

Discovering exoplanets using artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

By implementing artificial intelligence techniques similar to those used in autonomous cars, a team from the UNIGE and the UniBE, in partnership with the company Disaitek, has discovered a new method for detecting exoplanets. The majority of exoplanets discovered to date have been discovered using the transit method. This technique is based on a mini eclipse caused when a planet passes in front of its star. The decrease in luminosity observed makes it possible to deduce the existence of a planet and to estimate its diameter, after the observations have been periodically confirmed. However, theory predicts that in many planetary systems, interactions between planets alter this periodicity and make their detection impossible.


What is Machine Learning?

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) and computer science that focuses on using data and algorithms to simulate the way humans learn, gradually increasing its accuracy. IBM has a rich history of machine learning. One of them, Arthur Samuel, is famous for coining the term "machine learning" in his research on the game of checkers. Robert Neely, a self-proclaimed checkers master, played the game on an IBM 7094 computer in 1962 and lost to the computer. This feat appears almost trivial in comparison to what can be done today, but it is regarded as a significant milestone in the field of artificial intelligence. Over the next two decades, data storage and processing technology will create some of the innovative products we know and love today, like the Netflix recommendation engine or self-driving cars.


Robot taxi boats take to the water in Amsterdam

ZDNet

An autonomous boat taxi, years in the making, has now made it to the waterways of Amsterdam. The self-driving boat, dubbed Roboat III, is the creation of MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), the Senseable City Laboratory, and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions. First developed and tested in pool environments back in 2015, Roboat has undergone extensive redesigns to become a full-scale, autonomous'taxi' service for city residents. Last year's version, Roboat II, was a blocky, eyesore-yellow model, two meters in length, that was able to carry two passengers. Despite its appearance, the technology behind the boat -- including sensors and mapping technologies -- meant that the boat was safely able to navigate itself for three hours with an error margin of 0.17m.

In the coming years, mobility solutions--or how we get from point A to point B--will bridge the gap between ground and air transportation--yes, that means flying cars. Technological advancements are transforming mobility for people and, leading to unprecedented change. Nand Kochhar, vice president of automotive and transportation for Siemens Software says this transformation extends beyond transportation to society in general. "The future of mobility is going to be multimodal to meet consumer demands, to offer a holistic experience in a frictionless way, which offers comfort, convenience, and safety to the end consumer." Thinking about transportation differently is part of a bigger trend, Kochhar notes: "Look at few other trends like sustainability and emissions, which are not just a challenge for the automotive industry but to society as a whole." The advances in technology will have benefits beyond shipping and commute improvements--these technological advancements, Kochhar argues, are poised to drive an infrastructure paradigm shift that will bring newfound autonomy to those who, today, aren't able to get around by themselves. Kochhar explains, "Just imagine people in our own families who are in that stage where they're not able to drive today. Now, you're able to provide them freedom." Laurel Ruma: From Technology Review, I'm Laurel Ruma, and this is Business Lab, the show that helps business leaders make sense of new technologies coming out of the lab and into the marketplace. Our topic today is the future of mobility. In 2011, Marc Andreessen famously said, "Software is eating the world."


Artificial Intelligence: The Enemy and The Solution - CPO Magazine

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is often viewed as a potential threat to humanity, but it can also be viewed as a valuable tool. From self-driving cars to automated security systems, AI is gradually becoming a valuable resource in our everyday lives. It's important to realize that AI can be used for good or bad purposes. One of the biggest risks of AI is that it is becoming more and more advanced, which is opening the door to the possibility of AI surpassing human intelligence. This is called the singularity, and it's something that should be considered because once it occurs, we may not be able to turn back.

Natural language processing is a branch of artificial intelligence concerned with teaching computers to read and derive meaning from language. Since language is so complex, computers have to be taken through a series of steps before they can comprehend text. The following is a quick explanation of the steps that appear in a typical NLP pipeline. Over the last 25 years, Tata Elxsi has been facilitating technology-based advancements. It features a wide spectrum of breakthroughs enabled by AI and analytics, from self-driving cars to video analytics solutions.


AI Start-Ups in China

Communications of the ACM

Chinese AI businesses have been growing rapidly since 2010. They have attracted significant investment from Internet giants and a vast number of emerging AI companies have emerged. Over the past decade, Chinese AI start-ups have gradually moved away from noisy bubbles and landed in an investment boom. In 2020, when people were fighting against the pandemic, CloudMinds, an AI start-up based in Beijing, developed a humanoid service robot named Cloud Ginger XR-1. Ginger played an important role in local hospitals, delivering food and medication to patients in a contactless manner when it was needed the most. Moreover, Ginger entertained patients, freeing up doctors and medical teams to focus on more critical health matters.
