#ICRA2022, the great robotics scicommer – Day 1 video digest


The IEEE International Conference on Automation and Robotics, ICRA, is the itinerant flagship conference of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, RAS. In its 39th edition, ICRA is being held in the Pennsylvania Convention Center, in Philadelphia, PA, USA, between May 23 and 27, 2022. ICRA started just after the birth of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (formerly IEEE Robotics and Automation Council) in 1983. The first edition was held in Atlanta, GA, USA, in 1984. During its first years, the conference showed the growing interest of researchers and industry leaders in the emergent field of robotics.

GitHub - dair-ai/Mathematics-for-ML: 🧮 A collection of resources to learn mathematics for machine learning


A collection of resources to learn mathematics for machine learning. This is probably the place you want to start. Pay close attention to the notation and get comfortable with it. Machine learning deals with data and in turn uncertainty which is what statistics aims to teach. Get comfortable with topics like estimators, statistical significance, etc.

Walmart to place Symbotic system in 42 distribution facilities - Channel969


Symbotic's system will probably be deployed in all of Walmart's distribution community over the subsequent eight years. Walmart introduced that it's increasing its cope with Symbotic and plans to place Symbotic's system into all 42 of its regional distribution facilities over the subsequent, a minimum of, eight years. Symbotic's partnership with Walmart was introduced in July 2021, when Walmart deliberate to outfit 25 of its distribution facilities with Symbotic's system. The businesses had been working collectively since 2017, when Symbotic's system started being examined in Walmart's Brooksville, Florida distribution heart. The system features a fleet of totally autonomous robots and synthetic intelligence (AI) powered software program that goals to enhance effectivity, accuracy and agility whereas additionally lowering prices.

Artificial Intelligence Helps Scale Up Advanced Solar Cell Manufacturing


A type of artificial intelligence called machine learning can help scale up manufacturing of perovskite solar cells. Perovskite materials would be superior to silicon in PV cells, but manufacturing such cells at scale is a huge hurdle. Perovskites are a family of materials that are currently the leading contender to replace the silicon-based solar photovoltaics that are in broad use today. They carry the promise of panels that are far lighter and thinner, that could be made in large volumes with ultra-high throughput at room temperature instead of at hundreds of degrees, and that are easier and cheaper to transport and install. But bringing these materials from small laboratory experiments into a product that can be manufactured competitively has been a protracted struggle.

It's a Marketing Mess! Artificial Intelligence vs Machine Learning


There are many types of analytics that are used in the security world; some are defined by vendors, others by analysts. Let's begin by using the Gartner analytics maturity curve as a model for the list, with the insertion of one additional term slotted in the middle of the curve: Behavioral Analytics. Descriptive Analytics (Gartner): Descriptive Analytics is the examination of data or content, usually manually performed, to answer the question "What happened?" Baikalov explains that descriptive Analytics is the realm of a SIEM (Security Information and Event Management system) like ArcSight: "these systems gather and correlate all log data and report on known bad activities." Diagnostic Analytics (Gartner): Diagnostic Analytics is a form of advanced analytics which examines data or content to answer the question "Why did it happen?",

BlobGAN: A BIG step for GANs


I explain Artificial Intelligence terms and news to non-experts. BlobGAN allows for unreal manipulation of images, made super easily controlling simple blobs. All these small blobs represent an object, and you can move them around or make them bigger, smaller, or even remove them, and it will have the same effect on the object it represents in the image. As the authors shared in their results, you can even create novel images by duplicating blobs, creating unseen images in the dataset like a room with two ceiling fans! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it is one of, if not the first, paper to make the modification of images as simple as moving blobs around and allowing for edits that were unseen in the training dataset.

'The Sims 4' now lets players choose their Sims' pronouns

Washington Post - Technology News

In "Create-A-Sim," "The Sims 4′s" character creation tool, players can now choose from preset pronouns -- she/her, he/him or they/them -- or input custom ones for their Sims. Given the intricacies of English grammar, that last option requires a bit of extra work. Players that create custom pronouns will have to input different forms, including subjective, objective, possessive dependent, possessive independent and reflexive. If that triggered some long-forgotten, school age conjugation lessons, don't worry: The game includes example sentences for reference. It then automatically updates to use the correct pronouns where applicable.

Twitch 'working on' making ban notifications more specific

Washington Post - Technology News

In the meantime, Hession touted Twitch's recent addition of an appeals portal, which has streamlined the process of objecting to suspensions and bans in cases where users feel like Twitch missed the mark. This is key, given that for some, Twitch is a major source of income; even just a handful of days away can amount to money left on the table or an exodus of paying subscribers. This new tool has validated Twitch's approach to moderation, global VP of safety ops Rob Lewington said. Even before the feature was implemented, Twitch regularly double-checked decisions to make sure they aligned with the platform's guidelines, establishing a success rate of over 99 percent. Now, that success rate is even higher.
