Internet of Things and Bayesian Networks

@machinelearnbot

As big data becomes more of cliche with every passing day, do you feel Internet of Things is the next marketing buzzword to grapple our lives. So what exactly is Internet of Thing (IoT) and why are we going to hear more about it in the coming days. Internet of thing (IoT) today denotes advanced connectivity of devices,systems and services that goes beyond machine to machine communications and covers a wide variety of domains and applications specifically in the manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. An application in IoT can be an automobile that has built in sensors to alert the driver when the tyre pressure is low. Built-in sensors on equipment's present in the power plant which transmit real time data and thereby enable to better transmission planning,load balancing.


Text Mining Support in Semantic Annotation and Indexing of Multimedia Data

AAAI Conferences

This short paper is describing a demonstrator that is complementing the paper "Towards Cross-Media Feature Extraction" in these proceedings. The demo is exemplifying the use of textual resources, out of which semantic information can be extracted, for supporting the semantic annotation and indexing of associated video material in the soccer domain. Entities and events extracted from textual data are marked-up with semantic classes derived from an ontology modeling the soccer domain. We show further how extracted Audio-Video features by video analysis can be taken into account for additional annotation of specific soccer event types, and how those different types of annotation can be combined.


US Air Force funds Explainable-AI for UAV tech

#artificialintelligence

Z Advanced Computing, Inc. (ZAC) of Potomac, MD announced on August 27 that it is funded by the US Air Force, to use ZAC's detailed 3D image recognition technology, based on Explainable-AI, for drones (unmanned aerial vehicle or UAV) for aerial image/object recognition. ZAC is the first to demonstrate Explainable-AI, where various attributes and details of 3D (three dimensional) objects can be recognized from any view or angle. "With our superior approach, complex 3D objects can be recognized from any direction, using only a small number of training samples," said Dr. Saied Tadayon, CTO of ZAC. "For complex tasks, such as drone vision, you need ZAC's superior technology to handle detailed 3D image recognition." "You cannot do this with the other techniques, such as Deep Convolutional Neural Networks, even with an extremely large number of training samples. That's basically hitting the limits of the CNNs," continued Dr. Bijan Tadayon, CEO of ZAC.


Why You Must Treat Artificial Intelligence (AI) As A Very Special Technology

#artificialintelligence

There are lots of technologies that attract our attention – and money – these days. We're obsessed with blockchain, cryptocurrency, IOT, big data analytics, cybersecurity3-D printing and drones. We're excited about virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality. We love talking about driverless cars, ships and planes. We can't wait for 5G and Wi-Fi domes that solve all of our network access problems; and while we're getting a little worried about social media and privacy, we're still addicted to our ever-more-powerful smartphones.
