Partnership Profile: HD Maps for Autonomous Vehicles

#artificialintelligence

Ecopia is creating the first HD Map of Waterloo Region. Today, drivers use maps for way-finding and to generally orientate themselves with their surroundings, but as the task of driving shifts from the in-car driver to in-vehicle automation, the role of digital maps shifts significantly. These next generation maps for machines come in the form of a highly accurate and realistic representation of the road, generally referred to as high-definition (HD) maps. The base layers of the Waterloo Region HDMap, created by Ecopia's Global Feature Extraction services, offers a highly accurate and highly attributed representation of the road, including attributes such as lane model, traffic signs, road furniture and lane geometry, as autonomous vehicles need very different maps from those that are currently used in today's navigation systems. HDMaps of Waterloo Region will be available to SMEs and academia on a platform hosted and developed by Ecopia.


AI Can Now Predict If You're Going To Die Soon And Nobody Knows How

#artificialintelligence

Is there anything today that can't possibly be done by Artificial Intelligence? From self-driving cars, 3D printing, sex robots that can breathe, and many other AI innovations, AI can do just about everything. To that end, researchers from Pennsylvania healthcare provider, Geisinger have trained an AI to predict which patients are at risk of dying within a course of a year, reports New Scientist. SEE ALSO: Chrome's New Feature Uses AI To Describe Images For Blind And Low-Vision Users Artificial Intelligence can reportedly determine when a person will die based on their heart test results, even if these results look normal to doctors. Dr. Brandon Fornwalt at the healthcare provider, Geisinger, trained the AI with examining 1.77 million electrocardiogram (ECG) results from almost 400,000 people to predict patterns that signal towards future cardiac issues.

Try zeroing in on an orange. While the human brain may correctly identify the images, a machine might mistake them for a missile or jaguar, says Chaz Firestone, assistant professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Those mistakes might seem comical at face value, but could prove deadly if a self-driving car doesn't recognize a person in its path, for example. Or when we begin relying more on automated radiology to screen for anomalies like tumors or tissue damage. "Most of the time, research in our field [of artificial intelligence] is about getting computers to think like people," says Firestone.

Machine learning & Artificial Intelligence Top Training center in Bangalore ML & AI Coaching Center in Bangalore Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. The field of Artificial Intelligence (ai systems) encompasses computer science, natural language processing, math, psychology, neuroscience, data science, machine learning and many other disciplines.


Express Unmanned Vehicle Appears on the Campus of Tianjin University-Tianjin University:

#artificialintelligence

Recently, students on the Peiyangyuan Campus of Tianjin University (TJU) caught their first glimpse of a little blue and white self-driving car moving leisurely around the campus. If students blocked its way, it would automatically slow down and brake. Actually, the driverless vehicle is being used for express delivery and was recently put into use in mid-October. Despite its budding appearance, it is the latest product from Alibaba's Cainiao E.T. Logistics Laboratory, which holds the leading edge in international autopilot capability. The Cainiao unmanned vehicle is moving on the Peiyangyuan Campus of Tianjin University.


Understanding Deep Learning

#artificialintelligence

We have now entered the era of artificial intelligence. In just a few years, the number of applications using AI has grown tremendously, from self-driving cars to recommendations from your favourite streaming provider. Almost every major research field is now using AI. Behind all this, there is one constant: the reliance, in one way or another, on deep learning. Thanks to its power and flexibility, this new subset of AI approach is now everywhere, even in ecology we show in'Applications for deep learning in ecology'.

The Future Of Retail: Autonomous Drivers, Conscious Consumers And AI-Powered Everything

#artificialintelligence

Between delivery bots, interactive screens and voice shopping, the retail landscape has no boundaries for innovation. While some of the trends we're seeing now will prove to be just trends, others will change the way consumers shop and push brands to radically rethink their customer experience. As 2019 comes to a close, it's critical to reflect on changing customer expectations as well as industry leaders who are raising the bar for everyone in the retail space. As the chief marketing officer of a software as a service (SaaS) platform for e-commerce product data, I've come across some leading trends that are likely to stick. For any marketer in the retail space, it's important to consider what these trends may mean.


Glimpse Into the Future: What Banking Looks Like 10 Years From Now

#artificialintelligence

"We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next ten." That famous line from Bill Gates certainly applies to the banking industry. While banking may still look much as it does today in the next year or two, the springboards for dramatic change already are in place. Those forces -- operating in tandem with shifting consumer expectations -- will have an unprecedented impact in the decade ahead, accelerating the transformation of the banking landscape. It's not too late for traditional banks and credit unions to thrive in this dynamic environment.


Samsung Tech Day: Today's Electronic Devices Seem Magical, But the Real Super-Power is in Silicon - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

Arthur C. Clarke's famous comment, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," seems especially apt today, with cars driving themselves and phones starting to do real-time language translation. But the real super-power behind our smartphones, apps, servers, automated homes and autonomous vehicles isn't magic – it's silicon, in the form of advanced processor and memory chips. A vivid reminder of this was provided by Samsung Semiconductor, a world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, at its Samsung Tech Day on Oct. 23 in San Jose. The annual event is part of Samsung's ongoing effort to foster innovation across the technology ecosystem, with hundreds of attendees learning about and discussing the future of consumer and business technology sectors. Chip-stacking is a perfect example of how behind-the-scenes innovation creates new possibilities, like the 12GB LPDDR4X uMCP (UFS-based multichip package).
