Iveda Introduces Patented Next-Gen AI Search Technology for Video Surveillance - Iveda - Enabling Cloud Video Surveillance

#artificialintelligence

This new offering is available to service providers such as security integrators, telecoms and alarm and monitoring companies for reselling to their customers. IvedaAI includes a powerful self-contained server with artificial intelligence (AI) software, capable of searching a combination of objects from dozens to thousands of cameras in less than one second. Video analytics have been around for many years, but adoption has been slow because of inaccuracies and high cost. IvedaAI employs 30 patents in AI, big data analytics and cloud computing. It applies a deep learning algorithm (trained, not programmed), automates processes and uses natural language.


US and China should collaborate more to bring AI to healthcare

#artificialintelligence

New article says that to take full advantage of deep-learning solutions in healthcare, the US and China should collaborate, not compete. In a new commentary article, titled'It Takes a Planet', Eric Topol, MD, of Scripps Research and Kai-Fu Li, PhD, CEO of the China-based tech investment firm Sinovation Ventures have argued for more collaboration between China and the US on artificial intelligence (AI) development. This comes in the wake of the US government ordering the AI company iCarbonX in China to divest its majority ownership stake in the Massachusetts-based company PatientsLikeMe. "Chinese academics and companies already have unfettered access to personal health data," they write. "To compete in AI health, US companies will need access to clinical data on a similar scale. How will that be possible if the current isolationist policy continues?"


[P] Deep learning for estimating race and ethnicity from electronic medical records (GitHub arXiv) • r/MachineLearning

@machinelearnbot

I recently launched a new research project called RIDDLE: Race and ethnicity Imputation from Disease history with Deep LEarning. I haven't seen a lot of content on /r/machinelearning that deals with biomedical data, so I thought that this project might be interesting to some of you! RIDDLE uses deep MLPs to estimate race and ethnicity information from electronic medical records. The underlying methodology is not anything new, but I think the application is meaningful. RIDDLE is primarily useful for epidemiology research where race & ethnicity can be powerful confounders.


Using blockchain to secure the 'internet of things' -- GCN

This article was first posted on The Conversation. The world is full of connected devices -- and more are coming. In 2017, there were an estimated 8.4 billion internet-enabled thermostats, cameras, streetlights and other electronics. By 2020 that number could exceed 20 billion, and by 2030 there could be 500 billion or more. Because they'll all be online all the time, each of those devices -- whether a voice-recognition personal assistant or a pay-by-phone parking meter or a temperature sensor deep in an industrial robot -- will be vulnerable to a cyberattack and could even be part of one.


AI Stats News: 39% Of Business Executives Predict China Will Overtake US As The Global AI Leader

The recent surveys, studies, forecasts and other quantitative assessments of the health and progress of AI provided new numbers regarding business leaders' assessment of China as a global AI leader, the current worldwide ranking of China's AI-related entrepreneurial and research activities, plans for AI adoption by U.S. enterprises and expectations regarding its impact on jobs, and the use of AI in face recognition, physical security monitoring, cashierless retail, categorizing open-ended survey responses, and detecting plant diseases and atrial fibrillation.
