KT deploys 5G autonomous carts at warehouses


One of the carts, called, Targo, will trail behind staff. South Korean telco KT has deployed autonomous carts with 5G connectivity at its smartphone warehouses to alleviate the workload of staff, the company announced. The carts were co-developed by South Korean autonomous robot developer Twinny. One version of the cart, dubbed NarGo, will have a cart that has multiple carts trailing behind it, like a freight train. It is designed to carry large quantities of cargo, with each cart being able to carry 100 kilograms of goods.

Top 10 B.Tech Data Science and Artificial Intelligence Colleges In India


Are you a student looking for the top 10 colleges for pursuing bachelor's/Btech in data science and artificial intelligence? In fact, as soon as a child passes high school, he/she starts to inquire about various colleges and universities which match his learning profile so that he gains proficiency in the subject which he decides to study. There are subjects that are not traditional in nature and require extra efforts to look into so that the right decision is taken. One such subject is Artificial Intelligence, which calls for counterfeit of human intelligence procedures by computers and other machines. This course requires expert faculty to teach so that students get adequate knowledge and are able to meet the industries' demands with their skills.

The Role Artificial Intelligence is Playing in the Fight Against COVID-19


As the economy begins the slow process of re-opening, advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing are playing a key role not only in monitoring COVID-19 outbreaks, but how companies manage the unchartered landscape before them. Use of AI during the earliest days of the pandemic centered on tracking the spread of the disease around the world. Today, AI is playing a critical role in how pharmaceutical and biotech companies research and test treatments, and in the development of a vaccine. And now, as states begin to reopen, and businesses try to find the best path forward, these advanced technologies are enabling them to figure out how to do this safely and effectively. "Companies don't have historical data to work from because they've never dealt with a crisis like this before," said Katie Stein, chief strategy officer for Genpact, a global professional services firm that specializes in digital transformation.

AI Computing for Automotive: The Battle for Autonomy - EE Times Asia


The 2025 market for AI, including ADAS and robotic vehicles, is estimated at $2.75 billion – of which $2.5 billion will be "ADAS only"... Artificial Intelligence (AI) is gradually invading our lives through everyday objects like smartphones, smart speakers, and surveillance cameras. The hype around AI has led some players to consider it as a secondary objective, more or less difficult to achieve, rather than as a central tool to achieve the real objective: autonomy. Who are the winners and losers in the race for autonomy? "AI is gradually invading our lives and this will be particularly true in the automotive world" asserts Yohann Tschudi, Technology & Market Analyst, Computing & Software at Yole Développement (Yole). "AI could be the central tool to achieve AD, in the meantime some players are afraid of overinflated hype and do not put AI at the center of their AD strategy".

Robot barista helps South Korean cafe with social distancing


The new robot barista at the cafe in Daejeon, South Korea, is courteous and swift as it seamlessly makes its way toward customers. "Here is your Rooibos almond tea latte, please enjoy. It's even better if you stir it," it says, as a customer reaches for her drink on a tray installed within the large, gleaming white capsule-shaped computer. After managing to contain an outbreak of the new coronavirus that infected more than 11,000 people and killed 267, South Korea is slowly transitioning from intensive social distancing rules toward what the government calls "distancing in daily life." Robots could help people observe social distancing in public, said Lee Dong-bae, director of research at Vision Semicon, a smart factory solution provider that developed the barista robot together with a state-run science institute.

How Baidu is bringing AI to the fight against coronavirus


In comparison to the last major outbreak of the SARS virus in 2003, those fighting this particular epidemic can leverage new and emerging technologies that quickly aid public health bodies in creating a valuable understanding of the coronavirus, guiding prevention efforts, augmenting human aid and support efforts, and facilitating virus research. In recent years, AI has begun to play a significant role in the health-care sector: Advanced computing and data-analysis tools enable information sharing and diagnostic practices, and deepen the medical profession's understanding of diseases and infections. Prompted by the urgent need to contain Covid-19, government agencies and private companies around the world are increasingly looking toward AI-based techniques to provide insight on its spread and support treatment for those who have been infected. Because of Covid-19's unpredictable but highly-contagious nature, academic and medical communities have prioritized analyzing the structure of the virus in order to create an effective vaccine. However, this virus is particularly challenging because it belongs to a family of enveloped coronaviruses that contain single-strand RNA structures.

Contributing a New Large Dataset for SARS-CoV-2 Identification via CT Scan


You can find the dataset on Kaggle. For the detailed paper, please visit medRxiv. In December 2019, an outbreak coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) infection began in Wuhan, the capital of central China's Hubei province. On Jan 30, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared a global health emergency. By May 9, 2020, over 4 million officially confirmed cases were reported in practically every corner of the Earth, with 275,976 officially reported deaths documented.

China's State News Agency Introduces New Artificial Intelligence Anchor


The traditional method of training AI models involves setting up servers where models are trained on data, often through the use of a cloud-based computing platform. However, over the past few years an alternative form of model creation has arisen, called federated learning. Federated learning brings machine learning models to the data source, rather than bringing the data to the model. Federated learning links together multiple computational devices into a decentralized system that allows the individual devices that collect data to assist in training the model. In a federated learning system, the various devices that are part of the learning network each have a copy of the model on the device.

XAG Launched JetSeed Drone Magazine


China's leading agri-tech company XAG has just launched a patented granule spreading system JetSeed at its Special Event held in Ruoergai Grassland, Aba, Sichuan. JetSeed Granule Spreading System is designed to dispense granules such as seeds, fertilisers and pesticides precisely and effectively to any environment through high-speed airflows. It helps to combat grassland degradation, one of the world's biggest environmental challenges, using AI prescription map and high-accuracy drone spreading solution. At the launch event, XAG introduced this cutting-edge technology to Ruoergai Grassland, one of China's most primitive nature reserves, by spreading grass seeds on 670 hectares of degraded land with a fleet of P30 Plant Protection UASs configured with JetSeed Granule Spreading System. This is the first time that drones, AI and airflow seeding technologies were harnessed to restore the grassland biomes at plateau area.
