AI revolution 'more compassionate and moral' than NZers

#artificialintelligence

Hold onto your job - artificial intelligence (AI) is driving us through a fourth industrial revolution. Up to half our existing jobs will be replaced by robots, nanotechnology and AI within 10 to 15 years and many are warning New Zealand business is woefully unprepared. Sophie is Air New Zealand's face of digital disruption. Soon she may be booking your flight. Sophie was made by New Zealand-based company Soul Machines, which is about to roll out digital employees to some major companies.

10 Really Hard Decisions Coming Our Way

#artificialintelligence

Things are about to get interesting. You've likely heard that Google's DeepMind recently beat the world's best Go player. But in far more practical and pervasive ways, artificial intelligence (AI) is creeping into every aspect of life--every screen you view, every search, every purchase, and every customer service contact. It's the confluence of several technologies--Moore's law made storage, computing, and access devices almost free. This Venn diagram illustrates how deep learning is a subset of AI and how, when combined with big data, can inform enabling technologies in many sectors.


The ways that AI can change your business

@machinelearnbot

Artificial intelligence now fits in our daily lives and is deployed in more and more business sectors, hustling human expertise. Artificial intelligence should transform one job over two, but does not necessarily represent a threat. In fact, these jobs should be redirected to less repetitive tasks, with more added value, discusses According to a PwC study from March 2017, 70% of the jobs in the energy sector and 65% of the jobs in the consumer sector could be automated through artificial intelligence. This new technology involves a necessary change in the value chain and, if it opens the way to new skills like cybersecurity, it also represents a major challenge and opportunity for these businesses. Managers and Top-Levels are directly involved in the facing of this challenge, by accompanying the teams through this mutation: vanquish fears, embracing innovation, transforming businesses, training teams.


Google's Mad Scientist on Why You Shouldn't Fear AI

#artificialintelligence

I've been interested in A.I. since I was a kid. I focused my Ph.D. on it. My first novel was a parable about the dangers of being fearful of it. For over 20 years, I've worked to help people understand it. The field of A.I., of using computers to perform complex tasks as well as a human, is not new.


Video Friday: Sony's Home Robot, MegaBots Duel, and Six-Legged Zebros

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

Video Friday is your weekly selection of awesome robotics videos, collected by your Automaton bloggers. We'll also be posting a weekly calendar of upcoming robotics events for the next two months; here's what we have so far (send us your events!): Let us know if you have suggestions for next week, and enjoy today's videos. I like the design, but it costs over $1,100. Apollo is a fixed-base manipulation platform at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems who seems to enjoy playing with puny humans.


Vision is the next big challenge for chips

ZDNet

In my previous post on the recent Linley Processor Conference, I wrote about the ways that semiconductor companies are developing heterogeneous systems to reach higher levels of performance and efficiency than with traditional hardware. One of the areas where this is most urgently needed is vision processing, a challenge that got a lot of attention at this year's conference. The obvious application here is autonomous vehicles. One of the dirty secrets of self-driving cars is that today's test vehicles rely on a trunk full of electronics (see Ford's latest Fusion Hybrid autonomous development vehicle below). Sensors and software tend to be the big focus, but it still requires a powerful CPU and multiple GPUs burning hundreds of watts to process all this data and make decisions in real-time.


Robots on the Rise

Robohub

NEDO, Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, is a regular funder of robotic technology, has an office in Silicon Valley, and participates in various regional events to promote its work and future programs. One such event was Robots on the Rise: The Future of Robotics in Japan and the US held October 16th in Mountain View, CA and jointly sponsored by Silicon Valley Forum. Over 400 people attended the all-day series of panels with well-known speakers and relevant subject matter. Panels covered mobility, agricultural robotics, search and rescue, and the retail and manufacturing revolutions. Henrick Christensen from UC San Diego gave an overview of robotics in Japan and the US as a keynote.


The robot that could help clean up Fukushima

Daily Mail

From Fukushima in Japan to Sellafield in the UK, the world is home to a number of sites that are contaminated with radioactive waste and require clean-up. The current techniques available to do this are expensive and time consuming – but a new'super hero' robot could help to cut both costs and time. The robot, called Avexis, is designed to fit through a 100mm access port in the flooded reactors at the Fukushima site, to locate and analyse melted fuel. Many areas around Fukushima are still being decontaminated, 58,000 people are still displaced from their homes and the local food industries have been crippled. Its designers hope that the robot will be ready to deploy at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear power plant by February 2018.
