Amazon's new Ring camera is actually a flying drone -- for inside your home

#artificialintelligence

Ring's Always Home Cam is an indoor security camera drone. Ring on Thursday introduced a new product to its growing roster of smart home devices -- the Ring Always Home Cam. Unlike the Amazon company's other security cameras, the Always Home Cam is a flying camera drone that docks when it isn't in use. The Ring Always Home Cam will be available in 2021 for $250. Along with this hardware announcement, Ring says you'll be able to turn on end-to-end encryption in the Ring app's Control Center "later this year" in an effort to improve the security of its devices.


The Future of AI Part 1

#artificialintelligence

It was reported that Venture Capital investments into AI related startups made a significant increase in 2018, jumping by 72% compared to 2017, with 466 startups funded from 533 in 2017. PWC moneytree report stated that that seed-stage deal activity in the US among AI-related companies rose to 28% in the fourth-quarter of 2018, compared to 24% in the three months prior, while expansion-stage deal activity jumped to 32%, from 23%. There will be an increasing international rivalry over the global leadership of AI. President Putin of Russia was quoted as saying that "the nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world". Billionaire Mark Cuban was reported in CNBC as stating that "the world's first trillionaire would be an AI entrepreneur".


4 Perceived Problems With Self-Driving Vehicles

#artificialintelligence

The development of autonomous vehicles has been the strongest driver of auto tech investment in the past couple of years. According to the infographic about the future of cars from carsurance.net, more than $9 billion was funneled into the R&D of self-driving vehicles between 2014 and 2018 in 215 deals. The collective efforts of traditional automakers and tech giants, such as Google, Amazon, and Apple, are fast-tracking the maturity of autonomous driving technology. By 2030, about 70% of motor vehicles are projected to have some self-driving features. Furthermore, by the year 2035, it is expected that there will be 4.5 million self-driving cars roaming around the US streets.


Standing Ai (Artificial intelligence) - A brief history - Diginixai

#artificialintelligence

Thirty years ago, everybody was thinking about flying cars. Do we have flying cars now?? of course not! But we have something better. AI, wheel of our times, it will change the world as the invention of wheel did in the stone age. The term'artificial intelligence' was given by John Mccarthy way back in the 50's, but the journey of understanding the process took more than half of a century.


Computer Vision for Pictures and Videos

#artificialintelligence

As living organisms process images with their visual cortex, many researchers have taken the architecture of the mammalian visual cortex as a model for neural networks structured to perform image recognition. Over the past 20 years, progress in computer vision has been remarkable. Some computer vision systems achieve 99% accuracy, and some run decently on mobile devices. Today's best image classification models can detect diverse catalogues of objects at high definition resolution in colour. Additionally, people sometimes use hybrid vision models that combine deep learning with classical machine-learning algorithms and perform specific sub-tasks.


Redefining Leadership in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world. Emerging technologies on a daily basis in AI capabilities have led to a number of innovations including autonomous vehicles, self-driving flights, robotics, etc. Some of the AI technologies feature predictions on future and accurate decision-making. AI is the best friend to technology leaders who want to make the world a better place with unfolding inventions. Whether humans agree or not, AI developments are slowly impacting all aspects of the society including the economy.


AI Weekly: Amazon went wide with Alexa; now it's going deep

#artificialintelligence

Amazon's naked ambition to become part of everyone's daily lives was on full display this week at its annual hardware event. It announced a slew of new Alexa-powered devices, including a home surveillance drone, a suite of Ring-branded car alarm systems, and miscellany like an adorable little kids' Echo device. But it's clear Amazon's strategy has shifted, even if only for a product cycle, from going wide to going deep. Last year, Amazon baked its virtual assistant into any household device that could accommodate a chip. Its list of new widgets with Alexa seemed a mile long and included a menagerie of home goods, like lamps and microwaves.


Free workshop on Deep Learning with Keras and TensorFlow

#artificialintelligence

Because this year's UseR 2020 in Munich couldn't happen as an in-person event, I will be giving my workshop on Deep Learning with Keras and TensorFlow as an online event on You can register for FREE via Eventbrite. Deep learning is an artificial intelligence that mimics the workings of a human brain in processing different data, creating patterns and interpreting information that is used for decision making. It is a subfield of machine learning in artificial intelligence and Its networks has the capability to learn, supervised or unsupervised, from data that is either structured or labelled. It is one of the hottest trends in machine learning at the moment and there are many problems where deep learning shines, such as Self Driving Cars, Natural Language Processing, Machine Translations, image recognition and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and so on.


The AI 'Intelligence Explosion' Might Happen This Way, Including For AI Self-Driving Cars

#artificialintelligence

Sometimes you initiate an action and in a domino-like manner it gets going and going, seemingly feeding off itself and rapidly agitating in an almost unstoppable manner. For example, you might be familiar with those popular YouTube videos of a beaker that when filled with a special liquid will spontaneously gush out foam, akin to a type of chain reaction. History indicates that during the initial creation of the atomic bomb, some of the scientists involved were concerned that if the atomic bomb was set off, it might begin a chain reaction due to igniting a fission explosion in the air, and would generate a globally wide conflagration. There is a venue today in which a chain reaction phenomenon is being bandied about by researchers and scientists. Some vehemently assert that we are potentially going to have an AI "intelligence explosion" that will someday occur, and there are various bets that this might happen somewhere between the year 2050 and the year 2100.


Huawei Strives to Build industry Intelligent Twins with Intelligent Connectivity

#artificialintelligence

These solutions will help Huawei deliver intelligent connectivity that is characterized by ubiquitous gigabit, deterministic experience, and hyper-automation in order to build industry Intelligent Twins. Huawei also launched autonomous driving network (ADN) solutions for enterprises, propelling enterprise networks into the ADN era and accelerating the intelligent upgrades of industries. David Wang, Huawei Executive Director and Chairman of the Investment Review Board, delivered a keynote speech titled "Building industry Intelligent Twins with intelligent connectivity." According to Mr. Wang, connectivity is productivity. It is not mere computing power, but strong connectivity that makes Intelligent Twins smarter.
