Saudi Arabia oil facility attack launched from Iranian soil, US officials say

FOX News

President Trump says the U.S. is'locked and loaded' against the attackers of a key Saudi oil facility'depending on verification'; Mark Meredith reports. Cruise missiles and drones used in the weekend assault on Saudi Arabia's oil installations were launched from Iranian soil, U.S. officials told Fox News on Monday. The early morning strikes Saturday that hit Aramco's main crude processing facility knocked out 5.7 million barrels of daily oil production for Saudi Arabia -- or more than 5 percent of the world's daily crude production. Defense Secretary Mark Esper attended an emergency National Security Council meeting on Sunday at the White House along with Vice President Pence, where military options were discussed, officials told Fox News. Earlier Monday in Austria, Energy Secretary Rick Perry placed the blame for the attack squarely on Iran.

Today we would like to introduce one of our virtual employees to you: Our data quality rule number 1297 - in short "DQR-1297".


Data quality rules are the hidden champions of data cleansing tools – these help improve the quality of the master data records in data quality tools. Based on different data quality dimensions, data stewards establish different quality rules to determine if a data set is of good or poor quality. Creating data quality rules can be very time consuming. An easy approach could be to adopt proven algorithms, which already work very well in the context of customer and vendor data within our data sharing community. Today, we would like to introduce one of our virtual employees to you: Our data quality rule number 1297;"DQR-1297", for short.

Extreme Networks Makes Investment to Develop Next-Generation Cloud and AI-based Network Solutions in Ireland


READING, England and SHANNON, Ireland, September 16, 2019 ― Extreme Networks, a software-driven networking company, announced today that it will invest 3 million Euro to expand its R&D program in Shannon, Ireland. The investment will create 20 new jobs in engineering, data science, and software engineering over the next two years, with the Irish government providing additional funding in the form of research, development, and innovation grant worth over 500,000 Euro. The newly established R&D team will focus on developing a next-generation cloud portal for network applications and services, as well as a state-of-the-art AI-based security system for the Internet of Things (IoT). The Shannon R&D base is part of a long-term strategy by Extreme Networks that will result in the creation of a substantial number of highly specialized engineering jobs in the region over the next five years. With the network industry currently experiencing clear shifts in spending patterns as enterprises focus more on applications and security over physical hardware, this support for the program in Shannon is the next step in building a new'Cloud and AI Centre of Excellence' for Extreme Networks.

The 10 most important moments in AI (so far)


This article is part of Fast Company's editorial series The New Rules of AI. More than 60 years into the era of artificial intelligence, the world's largest technology companies are just beginning to crack open what's possible with AI--and grapple with how it might change our future.

World first after researchers create an AI made of glass – Fanatical Futurist by International Keynote Speaker Matthew Griffin


Connect, download a free E-Book, watch a keynote, or browse my blog. Recently, I talked about a team of researchers in the US that had managed to 3D print an Artificial Intelligence (AI) neural network, and another team that had made a complex neural network from DNA. But now, in another new development in the field of what's known as Diffractive Neural Networks, a team of researchers have created the smartest piece of glass in the known universe. Zongfu Yu at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and his colleagues have created a glass based AI that uses light to recognise and distinguish between images. What's more, the glass AI doesn't need to be powered to operate.

Artificial Intelligence, an ally against climate change


Greta Thunberg is 16 and lives in Sweden. Until February last year, she was just another student concerned about the environment. Today, she's become the world's most influential climate activists, after founding'Fridays for Future', a movement that encourages school students to take time off from class to participate in demonstrations against their countries' governments for breaching environmental laws. Greta believes that we're heading towards a natural disaster and the planet's destruction if we fail to change our habits as a society. And that includes everyone, from large industries to the individual citizen.

PRESS RELEASE, September 16, 2019 - Auransa


PALO ALTO, CA – September 16, 2019 – Auransa Inc., an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven biotechnology company developing precision medicines in areas of significant unmet medical need, today announced that data on AU-409, the company's lead drug candidate being developed for the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), will be presented at the 13th Annual Conference of the International Liver Cancer Association (ILCA). The study results will be featured in an oral presentation at the conference, which is being held September 20-22, 2019, in Chicago, IL. AU-409 is Auransa's lead drug candidate and was generated leveraging the company's proprietary AI-driven SMarTR Engine. The SMarTR Engine tackles disease heterogeneity and leverages gene expression profiles to predict responder patient populations, as well as compounds that might be effective against those patient populations. Auransa designed AU-409 to combine three essential features: DNA binding activity, antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo, and good oral bioavailability.

Managing the ethical complexities of the age of big data


Governments have defined almost every conceivable aspect of property ownership. Can I cut down my neighbors' tree if it grows over my patio? Only those limbs that grow over the property line. Can I play music on my porch? Only if it doesn't interfere with your neighbor's enjoyment of their property.
