TORONTO, November 1, 2019 Kontrol Energy Corp. (CSE: KNR, OTCQB: KNRLF, FSE:1K8) ("Kontrol" or "Company") a leader in the energy efficiency and smart building sector through IoT, Cloud and SaaS technology is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic partnership with RF Controls LLC ("RFC"). RFC is a technology company bringing the promises and possibilities of the Internet of Things (IOT) to life by transforming the physical world into real-time data visibility using battery-free and cost-effective Radio-Frequency IDentification (RAIN RFID) tag technology. Under the strategic partnership, Kontrol and RF Controls will jointly undertake efforts to promote and deploy the CS Smart Antenna Real-Time Location System (RTLS) integrated into Kontrol's energy and asset performance tracking software, to help customers improve operations and operating performance. By using low cost RAIN RFID tags, this integrated solution tells you where the asset is, when it's being used, and who is using it. CS Smart Antennas installed overhead, light up the entire floor area, providing wall to wall RTLS coverage of tagged assets automatically with no human interference.
Decades of research in artificial intelligence (AI) have produced formidable technologies that are providing immense benefit to industry, government, and society. AI systems can now translate across multiple languages, identify objects in images and video, streamline manufacturing processes, and control cars. The deployment of AI systems has not only created a trillion-dollar industry that is projected to quadruple in three years, but has also exposed the need to make AI systems fair, explainable, trustworthy, and secure. Future AI systems will rightfully be expected to reason effectively about the world in which they (and people) operate, handling complex tasks and responsibilities effectively and ethically, engaging in meaningful communication, and improving their awareness through experience. Achieving the full potential of AI technologies poses research challenges that require a radical transformation of the AI research enterprise, facilitated by significant and sustained investment. These are the major recommendations of a recent community effort coordinated by the Computing Community Consortium and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence to formulate a Roadmap for AI research and development over the next two decades.
The International Environments conference has been held four times now. The first meeting was held in 2005 at the University of Essex, the second in 2006 at the National Technical University of Athens, and the third in 2007 at the University of Ulm. The conference is unique in its field, providing a leading edge forum for the international community to present the latest academic research and commercial developments. The realization of intelligent environments requires the convergence of different prominent disciplines. As a result, the conference has relevance to individuals working in the fields of information and computer science, material engineering, artificial intelligence, architecture, health care, sociology, design, networking, and intelligent agents.
Edge intelligence refers to a set of connected systems and devices for data collection, caching, processing, and analysis in locations close to where data is captured based on artificial intelligence. The aim of edge intelligence is to enhance the quality and speed of data processing and protect the privacy and security of the data. Although recently emerged, spanning the period from 2011 to now, this field of research has shown explosive growth over the past five years. In this paper, we present a thorough and comprehensive survey on the literature surrounding edge intelligence. We first identify four fundamental components of edge intelligence, namely edge caching, edge training, edge inference, and edge offloading, based on theoretical and practical results pertaining to proposed and deployed systems. We then aim for a systematic classification of the state of the solutions by examining research results and observations for each of the four components and present a taxonomy that includes practical problems, adopted techniques, and application goals. For each category, we elaborate, compare and analyse the literature from the perspectives of adopted techniques, objectives, performance, advantages and drawbacks, etc. This survey article provides a comprehensive introduction to edge intelligence and its application areas. In addition, we summarise the development of the emerging research field and the current state-of-the-art and discuss the important open issues and possible theoretical and technical solutions.
