Engineering a Successful New Car: Starting a New F1 Season with McLaren Racing


The 2022 season ignited a world of changes for McLaren Racing and Formula 1 with the biggest reengineering in modern F1 history. Each team now has a budget cap, and significant rule changes have been introduced, altering strategies and adding excitement for the fans. Another change that we're thrilled about is that DataRobot is one of McLaren's newest partners. As part of this relationship, DataRobot will be integrated into the McLaren Racing infrastructure, delivering AI-powered predictions and insights to maximize performance and optimize simulations. DataRobot is collaborating with team members across departments of McLaren and showing off co-marketing activities, including logos on the McLaren's MCL36 race cars and on the race suits of McLaren F1 drivers, Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo.

Closing The Gap Between Marketing And AI Systems


As a professor of machine learning, I often get asked how I think artificial intelligence (AI) will change the world we're living in. To answer this question, I usually find it easier to speak about one of the faster-moving fields of AI--digital advertising, in which AI has been around for quite some time but has always sat on the side of big tech. Now, as technology is becoming more available, you can see how it can potentially change the way we do things. To paint a picture, in the world of marketing, programmatic systems are a part of everyday life. Through them, the likes of Facebook, Google and TikTok have allowed marketers to reach billions of people, providing these opportunities for businesses both large and small.

What is AI hardware? How GPUs and TPUs give artificial intelligence algorithms a boost


Were you unable to attend Transform 2022? Check out all of the summit sessions in our on-demand library now! Most computers and algorithms -- including, at this point, many artificial intelligence (AI) applications -- run on general-purpose circuits called central processing units or CPUs. Though, when some calculations are done often, computer scientists and electrical engineers design special circuits that can perform the same work faster or with more accuracy. Now that AI algorithms are becoming so common and essential, specialized circuits or chips are becoming more and more common and essential.

The Role of Human Talents in the Era of Artificial Intelligence


As we have entered into the era of artificial intelligence (AI), today's AI-based technologies are not only assisting in mass production factories but also becoming socially intelligent – they are now utilized to interact with customers in frontline services. While the heated debate on whether AI will replace human employees continues, research evidence has shown that AI does not always outperform humans, especially in contexts such as tourism and hospitality service settings where person-to-person contact and personalized experiences are essential. A famous example is the first robot hotel in Japan which ended up replacing half of its robots with human staff. Some studies found customers still prefer human service in hospitality settings due to a number of reasons, such as the perception of humans as more effective communication partners, and the low perceived interaction quality and human sensitivity of service robots. Some studies also show that humans outperform service robots when it comes to building relationships and friendships with customers.

917P OPTIMA: Improve Care for Patients with Prostate, Breast, And Lung Cancer Through Artificial Intelligence


The Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) 2 sponsored public-private research initiative OPTIMA (Optimal Treatment for Patients with Solid Tumours in Europe Through Artificial intelligence) aims to employ artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance patient care for prostate, breast, and lung cancer. Creating the first interoperable, GDPR-compliant real-world data (RWD) and guidelines-driven evidence-generation platform in Europe was OPTIMA's main objective. The interdisciplinary collaboration of OPTIMA is concentrated on: establishing a safe, substantial, GDPR-compliant data platform with RWD from more than 200 million individuals. The federated learning tools, datasets, data analysis tools, and AI algorithms will all be hosted under the interoperable platform; creating clinical decision support toolkits that are based on global and national treatment recommendations and supported by data from cutting-edge AI models; using massive RWD to drive knowledge production, especially when the present evidence supporting clinical recommendations is insufficient or unreliable. In the disciplines of clinical, academic, patient, regulatory, data sciences, legal, ethical, and pharmaceutical, the interdisciplinary pan-European cooperation comprised 36 partners from 13 different countries. It has been given €21.3 million in IMI financing, a strong project management methodology, a Scientific Governance Board, and three independent advisory boards--Multistakeholder, Ethical/Legal; and Public/Private--are in place to offer prompt, objective guidance from subject matter experts.

UN says aid truck hit by debris from Ethiopian drone strike

Al Jazeera

Debris from a drone strike in northern Ethiopia's Tigray region has damaged a truck carrying humanitarian aid and belonging to the World Food Programme (WFP) and injured the truck's driver, the United Nations agency said on Monday. The WFP said the drone strike on Sunday hit near an area called Zana Woreda in northwestern Tigray, as two trucks were delivering relief supplies to families displaced by the nearly two-year long conflict. "Flying debris from the strike injured a driver contracted by WFP and caused minor damage to a WFP fleet truck," the spokesperson said, adding it was not possible to say yet whether further distributions would be suspended in the area. "WFP calls on all parties to respect and adhere to international humanitarian laws and to commit to safeguarding humanitarian workers, premises and assets." The WFP truck was delivering food to internally displaced people as hundreds of thousands have been uprooted by renewed fighting since August 24 after a five-month ceasefire broke down.

Using AI to track Coronavirus Variants


Researchers from the University of Florida (UF) are making use of the funding from the school to assist in resolving the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. All around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has become a never-ending challenge as new variants keep taking over as the previous ones die down. This is making the whole trend of the pandemic unpredictable and healthcare professionals and researchers want to dig deeper into the pandemic which has gripped the entire world over the past two years. The virus is always one step ahead, and whenever it feels like it's under control a new wave takes over which is more severe and contagious. The research team is all geared up to create an AI algorithm to track the virus and calculate new variants with precision. Publicly available global data will be leveraged to train the AI algorithm on the genetic structure of the virus.

Unleash the power of data & analytics with AI


The fast-paced age of computer connectivity is blurring the lines among physical, digital, and biological spheres. Tech is everything and tech is everywhere. Most organizations have somehow gone through a digital transformation journey. Today, almost every company is a technology company. As automation technology matures and becomes an integral part of business operations, it's time for organizations to pivot from process automation to intelligent automation, and from data-driven organizations to AI-powered organizations.

Introducing the Artificial Intelligence Ethics Playbook from GSMA


Artificial intelligence is a powerful, emerging force that is transforming business and society. The potential of these technologies to unlock benefits for organisations and society is only beginning to be seen. AI can help organisations to improve prediction, optimise operations, allocate resources more efficiently, and personalise digital solutions. PwC estimates AI could contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 20302. However, artificial intelligence isn't a futuristic technology; it is present in our everyday lives, used across a wide variety of industries.

Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Change the Sports Gambling Industry - Star Two
