AI-powered system can inspect a car in seconds using bomb detecting tech

FOX News

Fox News correspondent Grady Trimble has the latest on fears the technology will spiral out of control on'Special Report.' This is what you call speedy service. UVeye is a new system that uses artificial intelligence to perform multi-point vehicle inspections in seconds, saving hours of work compared to traditional methods. "It's kind of like an MRI for your car," UVeye Chief Marketing Officer Yaron Saghiv told Fox News Digital. The technology uses computer vision and deep learning originally developed in Israel as a security system that could scan below vehicles for explosive devices and other smuggled items.

Hezbollah conducts wargames near Lebanon's border with Israel

Al Jazeera

Lebanon's Hezbollah movement has carried out military exercises near the country's southern border with Israel in a show of its military power. About 200 Hezbollah fighters used live ammunition and an attack drone to take part in the exercises on Sunday in Aaramta, 20km (12 miles) north of the Israeli border. The drills took place ahead of the anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon on May 25, 2000. It was the largest demonstration of Hezbollah's military might in years. Hezbollah fighters carried out simulated raids involving sniper and drone attacks against Israeli targets as part of the exercise.

AI-powered 'Lifesaving Radio' helps surgeons operate with greater efficiency and accuracy

FOX News

Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel joins'Fox & Friends' to discuss the benefits of artificial intelligence in the medical industry if used with caution. Music has long been shown to enhance athletic performance, whether that performance is on an NFL field or a treadmill at the gym. And now, with the help of artificial intelligence, music is helping surgeons achieve better results in the operating room. Backed by scientific studies, NextMed Health -- in collaboration with the data science company Klick Health -- has created the world's first AI-based health care radio station called Lifesaving Radio. It features more than 30 hours of hard rock music that's been carefully curated for peak surgical performance.

Are killer robots the future of war?

Al Jazeera

Humanity stands on the brink of a new era of warfare. Driven by rapid developments in artificial intelligence, weapons platforms that can identify, target and decide to kill human beings on their own -- without an officer directing an attack or a soldier pulling the trigger -- are fast transforming the future of conflict. Officially, they are called lethal autonomous weapons systems (LAWS), but critics call them killer robots. Many countries, including the United States, China, the United Kingdom, India, Iran, Israel, South Korea, Russia and Turkey, have invested heavily in developing such weapons in recent years. A United Nations report suggests that Turkish-made Kargu-2 drones in fully-automatic mode marked the dawn of this new age when they attacked combatants in Libya in 2020 amid that country's ongoing conflict. Autonomous drones have also played a crucial role in the war in Ukraine, where both Moscow and Kyiv have deployed these uncrewed weapons to target enemy soldiers and infrastructure.

AI tool helps doctors make sense of chaotic patient data and identify diseases: 'More meaningful' interaction

FOX News

Doctors believe Artificial Intelligence is now saving lives, after a major advancement in breast cancer screenings. A.I. is detecting early signs of the disease, in some cases years before doctors would find the cancer on a traditional scan. For every patient visit, physicians spend an average of 16 minutes and 14 seconds using electronic health records to review data and make notes, according to a 2020 study in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Navina, a New York-based medical tech company, has created an artificial intelligence tool to help doctors reclaim some of that time -- and ensure that important data doesn't get missed. The platform, which is also called Navina, uses generative AI to transform how data informs the physician-patient interaction, explained Ronen Lavi, the company's Israel-based CEO.

Israeli demolition of Palestinian Bedouin homes spike in Naqab

Al Jazeera

Naqab, Israel – In 1992, Mohamed Abu Qwaider watched his mother's home bulldozed by the Israeli army in the unrecognised Bedouin village of az-Zarnug in the Naqab Desert. The then-10-year-old helped his family rebuild the house using stone and concrete, sturdier than the previous metal shack. A few days after completing their new home, the family got another demolition order stating the structure was built illegally and had to watch it flattened to the ground. "I was too young so I didn't know the regulations," Abu Qwaider, now 41, said. "All I knew is that we had the right – anybody has the right to upgrade their house and live peacefully," he told Al Jazeera.

'Chilling effect': Israel's ongoing surveillance of Palestinians

Al Jazeera

For activist Issa Amro, the latest revelations from human rights group Amnesty International about Israel's ever-growing use of facial recognition technology against Palestinians come as no surprise. My people are suffering from it," he told Al Jazeera from Hebron. On May 2, Amnesty published a report titled Automated Apartheid, detailing the workings of Israel's Red Wolf programme – a facial recognition technology used to track Palestinians since last year that is believed to be linked to similar, earlier programmes known as Blue Wolf and Wolf Pack. The technology has been deployed at checkpoints in the city of Hebron and other parts of the occupied West Bank – scanning the faces of Palestinians and comparing them against existing databases. Palestinians, like anyone else, have the right to live in a world that upholds equality and dignity. Help dismantle Israel's apartheid and call for an end to the supply of facial recognition technologies used in the Occupied Palestinian ...

Israel leads with early AI battlefield integration: 'The future of defense systems'

FOX News

Naftali Bennett spoke exclusively with Fox News Digital about the benefits of AI and the need to set parameters for its use now. Israel is working to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) into its battlefield operations as it looks to lead the way on handling "the biggest game changer" for technology. "The future of defense systems and of military will rely heavily on artificial intelligence," former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett told Fox News Digital in an exclusive interview. "I'm talking about the analysis of massive data in intelligence," he explained. Any country who seeks to be strong has to develop now an AI strategy," which he said he did during his tenure as prime minister. The Israel Defense Forces announced in February that the force has started utilizing AI in its operations, saying new digital methods helped produce "200 new target assets" during a 10-day operation in 2021 to successfully target at least two Hamas commanders, The Jerusalem Post reported. "Remember breaking the human barrier?

Human or bot? New Turing test AI game challenges you to take your best guess


Named after the celebrated computer scientist Alan Turing, the Turing test is a way to determine if AI can convincingly act like a real person. The test typically asks someone to engage in an anonymous conversation and then deduce if their chat partner is real or artificial. Now, a new game takes advantage of the recent buzz about AI to dare you with its own version of a Turing test. Made by Tel Aviv-based and AI systems developer AI21 Labs, the online app known simply as Human or Not describes itself as a social Turing game. The premise is simple but challenging.
