Hitachi Vantara unveils aviation AI solution - Passenger Terminal Today

#artificialintelligence

Hitachi Vantara, the digital infrastructure and solutions subsidiary of Hitachi, is applying new artificial intelligence technologies to help airlines and airports solve some of their greatest challenges. The Silicon Valley-based company's technology aims to eliminate travel delays caused by congestion at check-in, security, retail and aircraft boarding areas. Hitachi Vantara has developed solutions that combine computer vision with video analytics and machine learning to help airline and airport staff identify when and where congestion and delays are occurring and take action to address them. The solution is already being piloted by a major US airline, and Hitachi Vantara hopes to implement the technology at more US airports in time for the 2020 holiday season.

Sproutt raises $12 million to find your best life insurance policy with AI

#artificialintelligence

Life insurance isn't as popular as it once was, despite the fact that a majority of people consider it to be important. Over 80% of consumers agreed in a recent survey that people need a life insurance policy, yet just 62% say they have one themselves. In fact, only 44% of U.S. households held individual life insurance as of 2010 -- a 50-year low -- compared with the 72% of Americans who owned life insurance in 1960. A New York- and Hartford, Connecticut-based startup hopes to reverse the trend with a novel service that rewards policyholders for making smart lifestyle choices. Dubbed Sproutt Insurance, it's the brainchild of insurance tech company Akitbo CEO Yoav Shaham, who nearly two years ago set out to blend analytics and health insights with AI to match people with life insurance providers.


Google taps AI to improve news results in Search

#artificialintelligence

Google says it's implementing AI and machine learning techniques to improve story suggestions in Google Search. In a blog post this morning, the tech giant announced that users in the U.S. in English (with more languages and locations to come in the next few months) who search for a news topic will now see an article carousel at the top of the results page. When there are multiple stories related to a search, each will be organized by relevance and quality in a way that accounts for a diversity of perspectives. "People come to Search for all types of information to help them form a better understanding of the world and the topics they care about most," wrote Google Search product manager Duncan Osborn. "We've continued to bring new improvements to Search to help people better orient themselves around a topic and easily explore related ideas, so they can more quickly go from having a question in mind to developing deeper understanding … Our research has shown that clustering results into clearly-defined stories is critical in helping people easily navigate the results and identify the best content for their needs."
