GrAI Matter Labs Reveals NeuronFlow Technology and Announces GrAIFlow SDK

#artificialintelligence

GrAI Matter Labs (aka GML), a neuromorphic computing pioneer today revealed NeuronFlow – a new programmable processor technology – and announced an early access program to its GrAIFlow software development kit. GML's NeuronFlow technology draws from neuromorphic and dataflow paradigms to uniquely solve core problems for real world AI applications. One of the breakthroughs of the technology is dynamic dataflow processing of real-time data, which drastically reduces application latency for autonomous navigation, cognitive voice & video assistants and smart healthcare applications. NeuronFlow utilizes in-memory compute with a mesh of cores and local neuron/synapse memories, avoiding the memory bottleneck of traditional Von Neumann architectures. It is based on a fully digital design with packet-switched connectivity and sparsely connected event-based neural networks to allow scalable implementations across market segments.


Application of neural networks using machine learning for live video recognition - Evenbytes

In the analysis phase we carry out two tasks, a real time analysis applying the models to obtain the data shown on the web (without storing them) and which identify separately whether or not there is a parked aircraft, in addition to obtaining the airline, the aircraft model and whether or not there are vehicles for fuel loading and baggage management. We carry out these analyses using two different recognition systems, on the one hand we apply automatic learning models programmed and trained by us (our own models and scripts) and in parallel we carry out the same task using Cloud Auto ML (a package of products that makes it possible to create customised models easily). With this double processing we increase the reliability of the results by comparison, and we improve the training processes of our own models and scripts. In addition to real time processing, we store all collected images for a complete overnight reprocessing. This is useful because depending on the project to which these technologies are applied, it will not always be necessary to obtain data in real time, and in this case, the data processed in batches are stored in Big Query for later analysis obtaining different indicators.


INDUS.AI Raises $8 Million Series A to Bring Artificial Intelligence to Construction - Cantech Letter

#artificialintelligence

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–INDUS.AI, a construction software company using computer vision to track and analyze construction project performance in real-time, announced today that it has received an $8 million Series A investment led by Millennium New Horizons with additional participation from strategic investors Foundamental and Groundbreak Ventures. Previous investors Spero Ventures, UP2398, and Bootstrap Labs also joined the round. The new funding will be used to accelerate product development and expand sales, marketing and customer success services. "The construction industry has been a neglected space for too long. This country expends extraordinary energy and capital to build amazing things – tunnels, train stations, skyscrapers and stadiums. But the sad truth is that the vast majority of those projects are painfully over-budget and delayed," said Matt Man, CEO and co-founder.


Oracle Introduces Exadata X8M

#artificialintelligence

SAN FRANCISCO, September 17, 2019 -- Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M, available today, sets a new bar and changes the dynamics of the database infrastructure market. Exadata X8M combines Intel Optane DC persistent memory and 100 gigabit remote direct memory access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) to remove storage bottlenecks and dramatically increase performance for the most demanding workloads such as Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), analytics, IoT, fraud detection, and high frequency trading. "With Exadata X8M, we deliver in-memory performance with all the benefits of shared storage for both OLTP and analytics," said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. "Reducing response times by an order of magnitude using direct database access to shared persistent memory accelerates every OLTP application, and is a game changer for applications that need real-time access to large amounts of data such as fraud detection and personalized shopping." Exadata X8M helps customers perform existing tasks faster and accelerates time-to-insight, while also enabling deeper and more frequent analyses.

Insurance Modernization Fueled by Rise of Insurtechs

#artificialintelligence

The recent rise of insurtechs has spurred modernization in the fundamentals of insurance, including policy creation, underwriting, and claims management. Insurtechs, such as Hippo and Lemonade, have implemented AI and data analytics to provide quick and accurate quotes to their customers while also decreasing their own operating costs. Such innovation has disrupted the traditional insurance industry and has helped alter underlying business models of legacy companies, forcing them to invest heavily in insurtech technology to remain competitive. Hippo, which promotes savings of up to 25% on home insurance, offers customer quotes in less than 60 seconds and also provides complimentary smart home sensor kits to all policyholders. These kits include a two-sensor smart home monitoring system and premium discounts for helping to prevent common risks from fire, water damage, and break-ins.
