Man Is Charged With Flying Drones to Bring Drugs From Mexico

U.S. News

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said in a recent annual report that drones are not often used to smuggle drugs from Mexico because they can only carry small loads, though it said they may become more common. In 2015, two people pleaded guilty to dropping 28 pounds (62 kilograms) of heroin from a drone in the border town of Calexico, California. That same year, Border Patrol agents in San Luis, Arizona, spotted a drone dropping bundles with 30 pounds (66 kilograms) of marijuana.

Cognitive System Value Model


The race to develop and deploy cognitive systems is on. Immature and rapidly changing, the current cognitive systems landscape is made up of a small but steadily growing group of cognitive tools, APIs, platforms, and application vendors. Autonomous Cognitive Systems Current Cognitive System deployments have a variety of approaches, ambitions, and complexities. For each Cognitive System deployment type, the following Cognitive Value Model provides context, illustrates the time-to-value versus the relative benefit realized, and identifies sample technologies and implementations.

AI can determine our motivations using a simple camera


Hamon and his team created an algorithm that analyzes the tiniest of human movements, using a camera, and determines what that person is feeling. SLL is trying to solve one of the oldest problems in the world: people lie. Being able to determine the viability of a TV show, or how people feel about a specific scene in a movie is a pretty neat trick. SLL does more than provide analytics for TV shows and movies, in fact its ambitions might be some of the highest we've ever seen for an AI company.

Driving reliability and improving maintenance outcomes with machine learning


To remain competitive, complex industries need to deploy industrial automation more than ever, as intense global competition drives process industries to increase efficiency through reduced operating costs, increased production, higher quality and lower inventories. Applying the failure signature to the rest of the pumps provided an early warning, allowing early action to avoid a repeat incident, thus preventing a major problem. In another case, a leading railway freight firm operating across 23 states in the US used machine learning to address perennial locomotive engine failures costing millions in repairs, fines and lost revenue. With the right software solutions, predictive technologies will detect the conditions that limit asset effectiveness, while providing prescriptive guidance that assures firms remain profitable and improve margins.

How AI can connect customers to your brand


A survey last year found that 98 percent of smartphone owners had used their device's artificial intelligence-based virtual personal assistant (VPA). Similarly designed in-store robot assistants can walk customers through self-service buying decisions, conversing with consumers in a more natural way to determine product preferences and enable more informed decision-making. In an increasingly competitive, data-driven market, forward-thinking brand leaders can gain an edge by leveraging conversations between humans and their AI assistants. Brands that create a seamless experience that delivers personalized, relevant offers will have a clear advantage.

Review: Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark


If you had been walking down the tunnel linking the Science Museum with South Kensington Tube station one day in February 2014, you might have seen a grown man crying. He had not been dumped or bankrupted. He was weeping because he was afraid for the future of a human race that was sledging merrily into the abyss of its obsolescence. Tegmark, a Swedish physicist with the smile of Cliff Richard and the mind of a modern Aristotle, is not like most people.

Nick Kohlschreiber - Media Expert and Adboom on Artificial Intelligence


A recent article in Business Insider suggests that artificial intelligence transforms marketing by changing how consumers are discovered, connected to, and communicated with. According to Nick Kohlschreiber, AI is far superior to in-house data scientists and their old-school methods of prediction. A recent article in Forbes suggests that in addition to personalization of marketing based on superior data collection and analysis, AI can help create content, answer questions (think Siri), and even improve team performance. With the use of technology, including artificial intelligence, Kohlschreiber helps companies grow organically by driving brand awareness.
