Osaro Powers the Brains Behind Smarter Picking Robots

As a McKinsey report suggests, there's an estimated $766 billion total wages in the U.S. for predictable physical work, which is more likely to be automated by robots. The top 3 markets where the most predictable physical work resides are 1) accommodation and food, 2) manufacturing, 3) transportation and warehousing. We are facing a global problem of shrinking labor forces driving up needs for automation. Especially for countries like Japan, its population is expected to shrink by 24% by 2050, and its working-age population is set to decline at an even faster pace than the overall population. Labor shortages drive up salaries in industries like e-commerce fulfillment, where the tasks are highly repetitive and openings are hard to fill.


Autonomous Ships? Container Ship Companies Are Betting Big On Autonomy Digital Trends

#artificialintelligence

The cylindrical vessel sports a futuristic design like a surfaced submarine, it's sleek hull sculpted to slice through waves with ease. But step on board and things are out of the ordinary. The living quarters have been removed. Cars may dominate today's discussion about the future of autonomous transportation but some of the world's largest maritime companies are betting big on autonomous shipping. Within the next decade, driverless ships like the one just described could be hauling cargo around the world.



From Flying Cars to Drone Delivery, Smart Future Will Soon Become Reality.

#artificialintelligence

Technology has revolutionized our world and lives. It has made our lives better, faster, easier and fun. It has given us multi functional devices that have put everything at the touch of a button. From the way we communicate to the way we travel, its changing and evolving rapidly every day. Social media isn't the only big statement technology has made by making the way we connect and interact with the world.


Walmart Confirms Use of AI-Powered Cameras to Detect Stealing

#artificialintelligence

Retail chain Walmart says it uses AI face detection in cameras at over 1,000 store locations. It turns out, those "selfie cameras" at Walmart's checkout lines have been watching you back. The retail chain utilizes what it internally calls Missed Scan Detection, which helps detect when an item lands in a shopping bag without being scanned. The AI-powered visual scanners/cameras are placed at both self-checkout registers and ones run by store cashiers. SEE ALSO: Did Walmart Convince FedEx to Dump Amazon?


New Hampshire's Highly Automated Future Is Almost Here - R Street

For nearly 50 years, FedEx's local package delivery method has largely gone unchanged, but it may soon evolve. The multinational corporation is currently working with the city of Manchester to begin testing a new last-mile delivery method. It involves a highly automated robot, resembling a mini fridge on wheels, that will transport products from local hubs to their final destinations. Thanks to state-of-the-art cameras and sensors, the FedEx Sameday Bot can efficiently cover the last leg of deliveries without a human operator. And because it can travel on sidewalks, this technology could increase shipping speed while reducing roadway congestion – greatly benefiting New Hampshirites.


Artificial Intelligence may not take your job, but it could become your boss

#artificialintelligence

When Conor Sprouls, a customer service representative in the call center of insurance giant MetLife talks to a customer over the phone, he keeps one eye on the bottom-right corner of his screen. There, in a little blue box, A.I. tells him how he's doing. The program flashes an icon of a speedometer, indicating that he should slow down. A heart icon pops up. For decades, people have fearfully imagined armies of hyper-efficient robots invading offices and factories, gobbling up jobs once done by humans.

The cutting-edge technologies powering the warehouse - IoT Now - How to run an IoT enabled business

#artificialintelligence

As global taste for rapid delivery increases, so too does the pressure on those facilitating logistics internationally. Regardless of the scale of operation, says Dean Porter at Zebra Technologies, inventory management is one of the most frequently reported pain points in the warehouse and logistics industries. What was once manageable – or at least tolerable – and done manually, now requires a distinct minimum level of technology to run. Without intelligent databases, around the clock connectivity and smart, ruggedised devices, stock would get lost, workers confused, and management baffled without a live account of operations. The solution is to invest time into looking at what the next wave of technology will bring and how it can plug into existing systems – just don't get put off by jargon or futuristic titles.

Volvo Group and NVIDIA are delivering autonomy to the world's transportation industries, using AI to revolutionize how people and products move all over the world. At its headquarters in Gothenburg, Sweden, Volvo Group announced Tuesday that it's using the NVIDIA DRIVE end-to-end autonomous driving platform to train, test and deploy self-driving AI vehicles, targeting public transport, freight transport, refuse and recycling collection, construction, mining, forestry and more. By injecting AI into these industries, Volvo Group and NVIDIA can create amazing new vehicles and deliver more productive services. The two companies are co-locating engineering teams in Gothenburg and Silicon Valley. Together, they will build on the DRIVE AGX Pegasus platform for in-vehicle AI computing and utilize the full DRIVE AV software stack for 360-degree sensor processing, perception, map localization and path planning.
