New Amazon robots could enable 'safer' exploitation of warehouse staff


Weeks after a study revealed that Amazon warehouse workers are injured at higher rates than staff at rival firms, the company has revealed it's testing new robots designed to improve employee safety. The e-commerce giant has ingratiatingly named two of the bots after Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie. Bert is an Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) that's built to navigate through Amazon facilities. In the future, the company envisions the bot carrying large and heavy items or carts across a site, reducing the strain on its human coworkers. Ernie, meanwhile, is a workstation system that removes totes from robotic shelves and then deliveries them to employees.

Vision Guided Robotics & Artificial Intelligence: An Explanation for the Non-Technical


The automation industry is experiencing an explosion of growth and technology capability. To explain complex technology, we use terms such as "artificial intelligence" to convey the idea that solutions are more capable and advanced than ever before. If you are an investor, business leader, or technology user who seeks to understand the technologies you are investing in, this article is for you. What follows is an explanation of vision-guided robotics and deep-learning algorithms. That's right, the article is titled "artificial intelligence" and yet by the end of the first paragraph, we've already switched to deep-learning algorithms!

Facebook AI can mimic text styles with a photo of a single word


Ever wish you could mimic a font or handwriting just by taking a snapshot? Facebook has unveiled an AI research project, TextStyleBrush, that copies the text style in a photo just by looking at one example word. While past AI could do this in a narrow set of conditions, the Facebook technology can recognize a wide variety of handwriting and type styles, even with less-than-ideal angles and backgrounds. The technology works much like style brush tools from word processor apps, just applied to images. Where previous approaches depended on specific criteria like typefaces, Facebook's method tries to "disentangle" the text from its appearance.

Can AI Design AI?: Responding to Google's Latest Tech


Could it design a bigger and better computer? A team at Google says yes. According to a recent article at NewScientist, Google has begun using AI to design AI. "Engineers at Google have tasked an artificial intelligence with designing faster and more efficient processors – and then used its chip designs to develop the next generation of specialised computers that run the very same type of AI algorithms," writes Matthew Sparkes. Sparkes continues by explaining Google's chip design, and introducing the reader to Google's Anna Goldie, a member of the team at the front of this effort that tasks computers with making better computers. "It is conceivable," says Sparkes, "that this new AI-designed chip will be used in the future to design its successor, and that successor would in turn be used to design its own replacement."

Decrease Fraud by Over 80% with AI


The power of avoiding and detecting fraud in advance is clear: a few hours can have a major impact on losses. There are a host of challenges in all industries – from financial services to retail and healthcare – that need to be addressed to detect fraudulent behavior and suspicious activities.

Implementation of Machine learning algorithms to assist consumers in discovering new products and services is new form of digital marketing on e-commerce website. When you shop online, a recommendation system directs you to the product that is most likely to be purchased.Users are often frustrated by options and need assistance discovering what they're looking for, so recommender systems are an important element of our digital environment. Customers will be happier, and profits will increase as a result. Recommender systems are similar to salespeople who know what you want based on your history and interests. In this blog, I am going to show different approaches for Recommendation system that can built on Brazilian e-commerce public dataset.
