Using AI and ML, this Gurugram SaaS startup is driving efficiency in the logistics industry

#artificialintelligence

Managing supply chain is one of the biggest technological opportunities in the world. The potential to disrupt inefficiencies using innovations has led several startups, especially in India, to rise to the challenge. GoBOLT, a Gurugram-based tech startup, was founded in late 2015, to take on the mammoth and unorganised logistics industry in India. Founders Sumit Sharma, Parag Aggarwal, Naitik Baghlaall come from corporate backgrounds, having worked in companies like Ernst & Young, J M Financial, GSK, and Tata Motors. The idea for GoBOLT was born during Sumit's travels, while travelling to developed economies like the US and Canada, where asset utilisation in the trucking industry is very high.

Arm Enables Custom Instructions for Embedded CPUs

#artificialintelligence

WIRE)--Arm TechCon – Today at Arm TechCon 2019, Arm CEO Simon Segars announced Arm Custom Instructions, a new feature for the Armv8-M architecture. Arm Custom Instructions will initially be implemented in Arm Cortex -M33 CPUs starting in the first half of 2020 at no additional cost to new and existing licensees, enabling SoC designers to add their own instructions for specific embedded and IoT applications without risk of software fragmentation. "A world of a trillion secure intelligent devices will be built on a diversity of complex use cases requiring increased synergy between hardware and software design," said Dipti Vachani, senior vice president and general manager, Automotive and IoT Line of Business, Arm. "We have engineered Arm Custom Instructions to fuel closer hardware and software co-design efforts toward achieving application-specific acceleration while unlocking greater device differentiation." Architected as part of the evolution of the Armv8-M architecture with secure Arm TrustZone technology, Arm Custom Instructions are based on a simple guiding principle; the CPU is a chassis for Arm silicon partner innovation.

Health IT company Cerner is leveraging its partnership with Amazon Web Services to launch a new cloud-based health platform to incorporate artificial intelligence to improve usability and provide predictive insights for patient care. The new platform, called Project Apollo, brings a more cognitive approach to practicing medicine, Cerner Chairman and CEO Brent Shafer said during his keynote address at Cerner Health Conference, according to a company press release. Shafer said the new platform will leverage Cerner's health care technology and the AWS infrastructure to accelerate the speed that innovations are integrated by removing manual steps for clients that slow the pace of adoption. Cerner also is creating an "intelligence ecosystem" to innovate next-generation user experiences and care delivery algorithms, the company said. We're looking to return the joy of delivering medicine, and we're focused on innovating for the future and delivering better usability today," Shafer said. The Kanas City-based company also announced new predictive modeling tools to help reduce opioid abuse, improved dashboards and analytics, and a new capability aimed at enhancing interoperability in the healthcare industry. In July, Cerner announced a collaboration with cloud giant AWS, which is part of Amazon, with the aim of accelerating healthcare innovation. As part of the agreement, Cerner named AWS its preferred cloud provider. During his keynote speech, Shafer said Cerner will focus on several key areas in its broader strategy to innovate with Amazon, including turning data into insights, increasing interoperability and usability, and rapid development and deployment, according to the Kansas City Business Journal. Matt Wood, vice president of artificial intelligence for AWS, also spoke at the conference on the partnership with Cerner and the possibilities that arise when companies can access "infrastructure as if it was a utility, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.
