Emerging Technology Creates Challenges for Electric Vehicles, PepsiCo Exec. Says – Tech Check News


Business Technology Equipment Fran Matso Lysiak Equipment Editor Johnston by Joseph Terry/Transport Topics ATLANTA -- Electric vehicles will have a large role in trucking's future, but there are challenges, including emerging technology, said a PepsiCo Inc. fleet executive. "Electric will continue to play a bigger and bigger part of the future for sure because it's more efficient," said Jim Johnston, fleet reliability manager with PepsiCo. "Internal combustion engines are only a third efficient. Electric is more efficient but you got to look at the whole picture."

Parallelized Narrow Scope NN or single Wider Scope NN • /r/MachineLearning


Is it more efficient to have separate neural networks that are narrowly scoped but are looped in a cycle or a neural network in a wider scope that does everything all the narrow scoped tasks in one model. By efficient I mean the training time, amount of data required, accuracy, etc. The reason I ask is I think the future of personal assistant androids, is they will be connected to the Internet and if the owner gives a task they haven't done before, "Wash the dishes." It will transcribe the voice to text, "understand" the intent of the sentence(do a task) and if it doesn't know the task, it will search the online repository of chain linked narrowly scoped tasks and then download it and run it. If it finds no matches in the household(not mapped yet) it will ask the task giver to bring them to the area.

Stock Trading Differences in the Age of Artificial Intelligence


I can still remember reading about artificial intelligence when I was learning to write C code at the tender age of 15. If you asked me how artificial intelligence would change our lives, I would talk about the impact of video games or the future of robotics. The thought that AI could be used for stock trading never crossed my mind. I have recently observed that AI has changed the world of financial trading in ways that I never envisioned. Here are some things that stock traders need to be aware of in 2018.

Huawei and Telefonica constructing 100Gbps network in Spain


Huawei has announced that it will be constructing an "intelligent metro network" capable of speeds of up to 100Gbps in Spain in conjunction with telecommunications carrier Telefonica, in order to enable low-latency and high-bandwidth services. Serving as Telefonica's underlying transport network, Huawei's Optical Transport Network (OTN) solution will provide 100Gbps/200Gbps bandwidth, and supports future progression to 400Gbps, meaning it will be able to support 4K video and new Telefonica Data Center Interconnect services. The more advanced optical networking platform, with generalised multiprotocol label switching (GMPLS), is almost twice as efficient in terms of service provisioning and management as current network solutions. "We are pleased to work with Telefonica de España to jointly build intelligent metro network, which is an important milestone in our global metro network reconstruction," president of Huawei Fixed Network Product Line Zha Jun said. "This project will meet the future requirements for 4K video development and DC network reconstruction, and achieve intelligent and efficient network management.
