Video analytics at the edge, an ideal technology for 5G cloud monetization

#artificialintelligence

Creating a programmable software infrastructure for telecommunication operations promises to reduce both the capital expenditure (CAPEX) and the operational expenses (OPEX) of the 5G telecommunications operators. What is exciting to many of us who work in this space is that the convergence of telecommunications, the cloud, and edge infrastructures will open up opportunities for new innovations and revenue for both the telecommunications industry and the cloud ecosystem. In this blog, we focus on video, the dominant traffic type on the internet since the introduction of 4G networks. With 5G, not only will the volume of video traffic increase, but there will also be many new solutions for industries, from retail to manufacturing to healthcare and forest monitoring, infusing deep learning and AI for video analytics scenarios. The symbiotic evolution of video analytics and edge computing provides opportunities for operators to offer new services which they can monetize with their customers.


Why leaders should be using AI in their businesses right now

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence is no new concept. The phrase was first coined by John McCarthy in 1956[1], when he invited a group of researchers to discuss the notion of'thinking machines' during a conference at Dartmouth College. Since then, it has been a point of fascination for scientists, academics, software developers, and moviemakers alike. Fast-forward to today where you'll find lots of examples hiding in plain sight. From digital assistants like Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri, who use AI to learn from user interactions, to automated email responses and search engines predicting what you're looking for.


DISH partners with IBM for new cloud-native 5G network

ZDNet

DISH and IBM have announced a new partnership that will see the companies collaborate on the United States' first greenfield cloud-native 5G network. DISH said in a statement that IBM will provide "AI-powered automation and network orchestration software and services to bring broad 5G network orchestration to DISH's business and operations platforms." DISH Wireless chief network officer Marc Rouanne explained that the company's 5G build is unique because they are creating a "network of networks" where enterprises can customize a network slice or group of slices to achieve their business goals. "IBM's orchestration solutions are designed to leverage AI, automation and machine learning to not only make these slices possible, but to help them adapt over time as customer use evolves," Rouanne said. "With IBM, DISH is combining the speed and latency advances of 5G with the customization and intelligence of the cloud, and the result could be a paradigm shift for small businesses, large enterprises and the broader wireless industry."


The interplay of 5G and artificial intelligence will enable new user experiences

#artificialintelligence

Over the years, 5G and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have both proven to be transformative technologies in their own ways. Both these technologies have one thing in common – both need to deal with massive amounts of data. We are on the cusp of an era where they will complement and enhance each other and bring the power of Machine Learning to our -devices, enabling richer, smoother, and more personalized experiences than ever before. Most of the initial implementations of AI/ML applications involved offline machine learning with large amounts of historical data and the inferencing engine resided in the cloud. As end devices became more powerful, some of the inferencing schemas moved to end devices.


Survey XII: What Is the Future of Ethical AI Design? – Imagining the Internet

#artificialintelligence

Results released June 16, 2021 – Pew Research Center and Elon University's Imagining the Internet Center asked experts where they thought efforts aimed at ethical artificial intelligence design would stand in the year 2030. Some 602 technology innovators, developers, business and policy leaders, researchers and activists responded to this specific question. The Question – Regarding the application of AI Ethics by 2030: In recent years, there have been scores of convenings and even more papers generated proposing ethical frameworks for the application of artificial intelligence (AI). They cover a host of issues including transparency, justice and fairness, privacy, freedom and human autonomy, beneficence and non-maleficence, freedom, trust, sustainability and dignity. Our questions here seek your predictions about the possibilities for such efforts. By 2030, will most of the AI systems being used by organizations of all sorts employ ethical principles focused primarily on the public ...


Artificial Intelligence offers greater solutions

#artificialintelligence

PETALING JAYA: The ability of artificial intelligence (AI) to process a huge amount of data makes it an important enabler in ultimately helping humans drive better outcomes. "We see customers struggling with this," said US-based software firm ServiceNow's IT Transformation Solution Lead for Asia, Daniel Ng at the August CxO Virtual Dialogue. "When customers see AI as a technology instead of an enabler, they will typically ask: 'Have you incorporated AI into this process and that process?' when they should be asking what are the problems that AI is being deployed on to solve." The CxO Virtual Dialogue, sponsored by The Star and ServiceNow, addressed the subject of "Enhancing IT Services and Operations with the Power of AI". It featured insights from Ng and Forrester's principal analyst Achim Granzen, who said that workers should be given more time to do greater value-added work, something that AI can help drive.


5G and AI Combine to Advance the Capabilities of Drones - AI Trends

#artificialintelligence

What do you get when you combine 5G and AI with advanced drone development? One answer is from Qualcomm's recent launch of its Flight RB5 5G Platform, a reference drone containing computing at lower power with AI, 5G, and long-range Wi-Fi 6 connectivity. According to the company in a press release, the drone and reference design contains "enhanced autonomy and intelligence features" powered by the Qualcomm QRB5165 processor. Announced in June 2020, the QRB5165 processor is customized for robotics applications and is coupled with the Qualcomm AI Engine, which delivers 15 trillion operations per second (Tops) of AI performance. This allows it to run complex AI and deep learning workloads, and on-device machine learning and accurate edge inferencing while using lower power, according to a Qualcomm product description.
