Drone delivery service using Starlink launched in Japan

The Japan Times

Telecommunications company KDDI, map-maker Zenrin and others in Japan launched a drone delivery service using U.S. aerospace company SpaceX's Starlink satellite internet access service in Chichibu, a mountainous city in Saitama Prefecture, on Thursday. By connecting a drone to the Starlink service that provides a stable communication environment even in mountain areas, the new delivery service allows residents in a district of Chichibu affected by a road closure following a mudslide in September last year to receive food and other supplies on a regular basis. According to KDDI, it is the first time that a regular drone delivery service using the Starlink service by SpaceX, officially called Space Exploration Technologies, has been launched in Japan.

Innovation and the Pandemic Propelled Performance G.R. Jenkin & Associ


Innovation and the Pandemic Propelled Performance The 2022 TMT Value Creators Report February 28, 2022 By Simon Bamberger, Hady Farag, Derek Kennedy, Franck Luisada, Michaela Novakov, Vaishali Rastogi, and Neal Zuckerman The outsized role that technology, media, and telecommunications (TMT) companies play in modern life has made the sector a leader in creating shareholder value. From 2016 to 2021, TMT companies collectively outperformed those in many other industries in total shareholder return (TSR), according to BCG's 2022 Value Creators Report. Among our findings: The lion's share of TMT value creation came from tech players, which from 2016 to 2021 had a median annual TSR performance of 30%, more than double the median overall return of 13% for the 33 industries we studied. Of the 232 TMT companies in our sample, 70% posted a higher TSR during the period that included the peak of the pandemic, the 21 months from March 2020 to November 2021, than during the prior 21 months. Continuing on the same growth trajectory may be a challenge given recent investor anxieties about inflation, monetary policy, and moderating earnings growth.

5 key 5G trends to watch in 2023


Individuals are also eager to learn about its capabilities and how it differs from previous networks. Many service providers are already rolling out 5G across countries like the U.S., U.K. and China. Since its initial adoption in 2019, 5G has already revolutionized the efficiency and reliability of broadband communication for consumers and enterprises. According to the Columbia Climate School, 5G will create a notable impact in the new year on various fronts, including broadband, sustainability and machine-to-machine communication. While we know this to a certain extent, we still look forward to the features that make it stand out.

Use Cases of Artificial Intelligence in the Telecommunication Industry


The telecom sector has experienced numerous automation phases. While previous connections were still made manually by switching cables, hardware later automated this operation. It is no longer a question of whether the rapid development of AI will be affecting or even disrupt the majority of the industry. In addition, the telecom industry is not an exception. Undoubtedly, the emergence of AI, Data Science, and Machine Learning will be enabling telecom firms to operate better, make investments, and additional revenue.

full body tracking with WiFi signals by utilizing deep learning architectures : AR_MR_XR


Advances in computer vision and machine learning techniques have led to significant development in 2D and 3D human pose estimation from RGB cameras, LiDAR, and radars. However, human pose estimation from images is adversely affected by occlusion and lighting, which are common in many scenarios of interest. Radar and LiDAR technologies, on the other hand, need specialized hardware that is expensive and power-intensive. Furthermore, placing these sensors in non-public areas raises significant privacy concerns. To address these limitations, recent research has explored the use of WiFi antennas (1D sensors) for body segmentation and key-point body detection.

MyRepublic Digital Transforms Telecommunications Market with Boomi


Boomi, the intelligent connectivity and automation leader, announced that MyRepublic Digital, the digital transformation company powering MyRepublic, an award-winning telecom operator in the Asia-Pacific, has implemented The Boomi AtomSphere Platform to achieve higher levels of efficiency, performance, and ultimately a better experience for customers. "For instance, we've observed a marked reduction in customer waiting time for modems between one and two business days, allowing us to provide faster service." MyRepublic Digital, a recently launched technology business spin-out, helps operators achieve their business outcomes with its readily deployable cloud-native multi-tenant software as a service (SaaS) platform, Encore. In the hyper-competitive telecom market, staying fast and agile when it comes to service delivery is key to success. To enhance the efficiencies of the Encore platform, and its real-time decision-making capabilities, without compromising on scalability or security, MyRepublic Digital selected Boomi's award-winning integration platform as a service (iPaaS).

Best applications of Deep Reinforcement Learning 2022 part4


Abstract: Although most reinforcement learning research has centered on competitive games, little work has been done on applying it to co-operative multiplayer games or text-based games. Codenames is a board game that involves both asymmetric co-operation and natural language processing, which makes it an excellent candidate for advancing RL research. To my knowledge, this work is the first to formulate Codenames as a Markov Decision Process and apply some well-known reinforcement learning algorithms such as SAC, PPO, and A2C to the environment. Although none of the above algorithms converge for the Codenames environment, neither do they converge for a simplified environment called ClickPixel, except when the board size is small. Abstract: In this paper, we employ multiple UAVs coordinated by a base station (BS) to help the ground users (GUs) to offload their sensing data.

12 Digital Transformation Trends for 2022/2023: Current Predictions You Should Know -


We're past the point where utilizing the latest technology is confined to big businesses with budgets to spare. The pandemic with its accompanying mandated lockdowns and changes in the demands and requirements of customers and markets are forcing companies to adapt to digital transformation. Put bluntly, those who want to remain in business have to keep up with the latest digital transformation trends. Some of them might already be familiar because they belong to innovations that have been in development for a long time. However, most will soon be ready for application and will be taking center stage in 2021. So we will be detailing each one to help you understand how these trends can affect your business in the coming years. With innovations being developed left and right, technological evolution comes into play. New technologies radically transform our lives into something that seemed unthinkable in the old times. However, it's not just our personal lives that are being altered by modernization. Businesses are also grabbing what they can when it comes to technological advancement. With the onset of the pandemic, they have to leverage new technologies to remain relevant in the digital age.

AIM Research: What did people search for in AI?


In retrospect, we see that the year was marked by the rising popularity of several text-to-image generators like Dall-E 2, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion, widening use cases of Metaverse, US–China chip war, tech sector layoffs, crypto volatility and much more.
