Why Unsupervised Machine Learning is the Future of Cybersecurity

#artificialintelligence

As we move towards a future where we lean on cybersecurity much more in our daily lives, it's important to be aware of the differences in the types of AI being used for network security. Over the last decade, Machine Learning has made huge progress in technology with Supervised and Reinforcement learning, in everything from photo recognition to self-driving cars. However, Supervised Learning is limited in its network security abilities like finding threats because it only looks for specifics that it has seen or labeled before, whereas Unsupervised Learning is constantly searching the network to find anomalies. Machine Learning comes in a few forms: Supervised, Reinforcement, Unsupervised and Semi-Supervised (also known as Active Learning). Supervised Learning relies on a process of labeling in order to "understand" information.


2021 Cadillac Escalade getting hands-free Super Cruise driving aid

FOX News

The 2020 Cadillac CT5 is an all-new sedan that's set to get better with age, says chief engineer Brandon Vivian, with upgrades to its Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver aid. The 2021 Cadillac Escalade will be equipped with the latest version of the automaker's Super Cruise semi-autonomous driver aid, the automaker has confirmed. It will be the brand's first SUV with the system, which will also be available on the upcoming CT4 and CT5 sedans. Super Cruise launched in 2017 in the CT6 sedan with the ability to drive the car within a lane on certain divided highways, allowing a driver to let go of the steering wheel and take their feet off the pedals. It uses a facial recognition camera that can tell if a driver is looking ahead with their eyes open, and won't work if they're not.


Apple's self-driving car system could use voice, gesture guidance - Roadshow

#artificialintelligence

Apple has its eye on self-driving car tech. Interacting with a future self-driving car could be a lot like working with some future interpretation of Apple iOS with voice, gesture and touch-enabled commands at your disposal. It's the overarching view gathered after reading through an Apple patent application filed last August and published last week for a self-driving car voice and gesture guidance system. CEO Tim Cook said in 2017 that Apple was working on an autonomous car system, rather than a car itself, as had been previously rumored. At its core, the system described in the patent application gives passengers three ways to give the autonomous car directions and input, and much of the described system is incredibly similar to commands we're used to today.


Railway operators in final phase of preparing for Tokyo Games

The Japan Times

Railway operators in the Tokyo area are in the final stages of preparations for the Olympics and Paralympics this summer. East Japan Railway Co., or JR East, is scheduled to open a new station on its Yamanote Line for the first time in 49 years in March. Takanawa Gateway Station, located close to a public viewing event site for the Olympics, is expected to be used by many passengers during the quadrennial sports event. JR East touts Takanawa Gateway as a "future station" that showcases cutting-edge Japanese technologies such as an autonomous security robot and a convenience store without shop assistants. By the end of this month, all train cars for the Yamanote Line will have space available for wheelchair users.


$7,000 Tesla Autopilot vs $1,000 Openpilot: Self-Driving Test!

Get free Supercharging when ordering a Tesla: http://geni.us/t3sla One of the most popular reactions from people when they see my Tesla Model 3 is they usually ask "Does it really drive itself?" because many people associate Teslas with self-driving & Tesla Autopilot which is an advanced driver assistance system. Autopilot is synonymous with Tesla, but not many people realize that other non-Tesla cars can also have their own advanced driver assistance system added at a fairly affordable price.


Using artificial intelligence to enrich digital maps

#artificialintelligence

A model invented by researchers at MIT and Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) that uses satellite imagery to tag road features in digital maps could help improve GPS navigation. Showing drivers more details about their routes can often help them navigate in unfamiliar locations. Lane counts, for instance, can enable a GPS system to warn drivers of diverging or merging lanes. Incorporating information about parking spots can help drivers plan ahead, while mapping bicycle lanes can help cyclists negotiate busy city streets. Providing updated information on road conditions can also improve planning for disaster relief.


How AI In Transportation Is Changing The Face Of The Industry

#artificialintelligence

From minimizing accidents, traffic management, ticketing and preventive maintenance of fleets, AI has the potential to transform the transportation sector. The adoption of new technologies has helped the transportation sector innovate and evolve over the years. Today it is time for the industry to leverage Artificial Intelligence ( AI). AI, a technology that provides machines the ability to think like humans, is transforming the industry. The application of AI in transportation can help the industry in several areas including passenger safety, traffic management, and energy efficiency, amongst others.


5 AIs in Search of a Campus

#artificialintelligence

To grasp how artificial intelligence will play out in higher education, and how we can strategically address these changes, we should think about how artificial intelligence might unfold over the next few years. In late 2019, professors research, create, critique, and teach various forms of artificial intelligence. Students, staff, and faculty increasingly experience artificial intelligence in digital devices, ranging from autonomous vehicles to software-guided computer game opponents, that are unsupported by the campus IT department. AI capabilities are gradually infusing the services, used by all in the campus community, of powerful computing enterprises such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft. Homegrown experiments are under way on our campuses, while vendors offer AI tools for us to purchase and implement.


AI: Pharma's Perfect Medicine

#artificialintelligence

AI appears set to be the thing that separates the next generation of business success stories and market dropouts. It has revolutionized the transportation industry by bringing the science fiction dream of autonomous cars into reality, as driverless taxis have already been tested and deployed in the U.S. Further indicators of its importance come from finance companies like Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley -- all of which have aggressively expanded their data and tech teams over the past year -- looking to deploy AI projects that will give them the competitive edge against their rivals. The application of this technology ranges from the mundane to the absurd, seemingly with no sector able to escape its influence -- and the pharma industry is no different. From personal experience, having spent nearly three decades working in the technology industry, and from many conversations with my better half, a longtime pharmaceutical research professional in the therapeutics and drug-discovery sector, there's no question the opportunity for AI in pharma is immense. Some of the industry's giants have already started to take the plunge and implement AI strategies for an array of different purposes, setting the stage for industry transformation.


Read Yuval Harari's blistering warning to Davos in full

#artificialintelligence

Automation will soon eliminate millions upon millions of jobs, and while new jobs will certainly be created, it is unclear whether people will be able to learn the necessary new skills fast enough. Suppose you are a fifty-years-old truck driver, and you just lost your job to a self-driving vehicle. Now there are new jobs in designing software or in teaching yoga to engineers – but how does a fifty-years-old truck driver reinvent himself or herself as a software engineer or as a yoga teacher? And people will have to do it not just once but again and again throughout their lives, because the automation revolution will not be a single watershed event following which the job market will settle down, into a new equilibrium. Rather, it will be a cascade of ever bigger disruptions, because AI is nowhere near its full potential.
