Technology Inclusions for Your Manufacturing Toolbox

#artificialintelligence

This is a very exciting time to be in Manufacturing! Manufacturing Engineers' toolboxes are expanding everyday with new technologies and possibilities for greater efficiency and capability. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or what some are calling Industry 4.0, is bringing all kinds of tools to bear on all processes in our industrial world. It used to be that only very large companies could take advantage of the latest technologies due to cost, limited availability, and the need for continuous development as they were implemented. Today, the suppliers of these critical technologies have more robust, user friendly solutions at costs that enable even small to medium size enterprises to employ. The next step in embracing this revolution is making sure that Manufacturing Engineers are exposed to and educated on what is possible.


Technology, data and digital solutions, main keys for the construction sector

#artificialintelligence

Construtech magazine has published detailed information on the trends that will star in the construction sector over the coming months. It will be difficult to get it right, but they point out that technology, data analysis and digital solutions, together with the aging of the workforce, will be decisive in construction. I highlight below a summary of the short-term future. And then I invite you to watch a video about the most ambitious projects that will be culminated in this exercise. According to its analysts, the construction industry is in the middle of a move toward new business models that are technology-driven and data-driven, provide better collaboration between stakeholders, and result in higher productivity.


5 AIs in Search of a Campus

#artificialintelligence

To grasp how artificial intelligence will play out in higher education, and how we can strategically address these changes, we should think about how artificial intelligence might unfold over the next few years. In late 2019, professors research, create, critique, and teach various forms of artificial intelligence. Students, staff, and faculty increasingly experience artificial intelligence in digital devices, ranging from autonomous vehicles to software-guided computer game opponents, that are unsupported by the campus IT department. AI capabilities are gradually infusing the services, used by all in the campus community, of powerful computing enterprises such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft. Homegrown experiments are under way on our campuses, while vendors offer AI tools for us to purchase and implement.


Incredible moment a British Paralympian swimmer takes her first steps wearing a robotic exoskeleton

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Incredible footage shows the moment a British Paralympian swimmer with cerebral palsy stands up and takes her first steps wearing a robotic exoskeleton. Grace Harvey, 21, was able to take the special walk with the help of state-of-the-art technology developed in Japan -- giving her a day she will never forget. In the video, the swimmer from Ware, Hertfordshire, smiled nervously as she took her'first' tentative steps. She went on to giggle when a bystander said'You're running, Grace.' Swimmer Ms Harvey holds the European record for the 200 metre (656 feet) Individual Medley and is presently the British number one in the 100 metre (328 feet) backstroke event. She is currently training in the city of Suzuka, Japan, ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics in August.


How AI Can Improve Business Efficiency Businessing Mag

#artificialintelligence

Artificial science is a phenomenon today that is expanding the possibilities of uses of artificial intelligence in business. Not only is AI is revolutionizing the world of science, but it is also showing us uses in business that we could only dream about. Although AI is one of the dominating technologies in recent times, not everyone understands the scope of its importance in the world of business. If you are new to the business world, or even an experienced business owner, you'd agree that you need your business to run as efficiently as possible because there's a solid connection between profitability and efficiency. Whether you run a big company, top software development company or you're a multinational business empire, the more efficient your business is, the more productivity and profitability it rakes in.


Robotic exoskeleton helps a paraplegic sportsman hug his mother for the first time in 10 years

Daily Mail - Science & tech

A robotic exoskeleton developed by Korean car manufacturer Hyundai has helped a paraplegic sportsman walk over and hug his mother for the first time in 10 years. Korean para-athlete and pro-archer Jun-beom Park was confined to a wheelchair in 2008 after being involved in an accident as a school boy. He damaged his thoracic vertebrae – the small bones that form the spine – in an incident that left him unable to walk. Now, 11 years on, the archery star has taken his'second first steps' thanks to an'exoskeleton suit' developed by Hyundai Motors Robotics Lab in Seoul, South Korea. In a heartwarming video produced by Hyundai, Jun-beom, 28, is seen putting his weight on his legs to stand up from his wheelchair, aided by the Hyundai Medical Exoskeleton (H-MEX).


Using artificial intelligence to detect hypoglycaemic events via wearable sensors

Tracking sugar in the blood is crucial for both healthy individuals and diabetic patients. Current methods to measure glucose requires needles and repeated fingerpricks over the day.


Headless Commerce Gets a Massive Push with a New Acquisition Deal

#artificialintelligence

Both Moltin and Elastic Path are leaders in the headless commerce ecosystem. Together, the headless commerce industry leaders would provide unmatched business user experience and technical agility to accelerate digital customer experience innovation. Headless Commerce platform is an independent architecture that independently exists and operates as a link between the front-end and back-end of an e-commerce application. The links can be established using APIs, experience management platforms, and tools such as Heroku and Mulesoft. Modern Content Management Systems (CMS) have a limited layer of headless features– meaning, front-end and back-end retain their reciprocal properties during the dynamic/ live applications and A/B testing.

Apple's low-power AI acquisition will bolster its surging AR play

#artificialintelligence

Apple reportedly spent around $200 million to purchase US artificial intelligence startup Xnor.ai, according to GeekWire. The startup's low-power, edge-based AI tools will allow Apple to add AI features to power-constrained devices, like smart cameras or phones. For instance, Xnor.ai's most notable technology is an AI-based image recognition tool that enables on-device human detection for smart home cameras. Apple will also have access to a platform created by Xnor.ai that allows software developers who aren't well-versed in AI to implement AI-related code and data libraries in their apps. Apple's Xnor.ai acquisition is just one of many it has recently made, as it aims to create more powerful and personalized AI features.
