AI Drone Learns to Detect Brawls

IEEE Spectrum Robotics Channel

Drones armed with computer vision software could enable new forms of automated skyborne surveillance to watch for violence below. One glimpse of that future comes from UK and Indian researchers who demonstrated a drone surveillance system that can automatically detect small groups of people fighting each other. The seed idea for researchers to develop such a drone surveillance system was first planted in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured hundreds in 2013. It was not until the Manchester Arena bombing that killed 23 and wounded 139--including many children leaving an Ariana Grande concert--when the researchers made some progress. This time, they harnessed a form of the popular artificial intelligence technique known as deep learning.

Artificial intelligence (AI) promises to deliver the most significant productivity boost and labor disruption since the industrial revolution. The news offers polarizing viewpoints on AI that range from curing cancer to overtaking the human race. Before we work ourselves into a tizzy over the destruction of humanity, we need to understand what AI can and can't do. Technology leaders have been debating AI concepts since 1950 when Alan Turing published his seminal paper on "Computing Machinery and Intelligence". However, in the past year, the AI discussion reached the top of the hype cycle.


Machine Learning And Big Data Know It Wasn't You Who Just Swiped Your Credit Card

International Business Times

You're sitting at home minding your own business when you get a call from your credit card's fraud detection unit asking if you've just made a purchase at a department store in your city. It wasn't you who bought expensive electronics using your credit card – in fact, it's been in your pocket all afternoon. So how did the bank know to flag this single purchase as most likely fraudulent?


Everything you want to know about how AI is transforming banking but were too afraid to ask

#artificialintelligence

The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) is set to change the way banks and financial services operate, as well as the way consumers approach their personal banking. Powerful AI can replace humans with machines, improve customer experience and provide simplified cost-effective solutions for businesses. AI is the science of creating intelligent machines and computer programs that can replace human tasks. Computer programs have vast capabilities to execute tasks quicker than humans can, with embedded algorithms that leave less chance to make human error. Robert Smith, Chairman and CEO of Vista Equity partners said at The World Economic Forum: "Since the invention of computers, we have envisioned that computer systems will take the best of what we think and deliver real time solutions that are more efficient.


The Deep Learning Age Of Computing – Saad Hussain – Medium

Last year, we pitched our deep learning and AI-based fraud protection product, DeepShield.ai, to financial institutions. In doing so, it became clear pretty quickly that our strategy of pitching our product was dead wrong. Let's take a step back and look at what led us to pitch our product. Two years ago, we built an MVP payment platform that was targeted for the used item sales market. Soon after soft launching our product, our users started experiencing payment fraud problems.

So how did the bank know to flag this single purchase as most likely fraudulent? Credit card companies have a vested interest in identifying financial transactions that are illegitimate and criminal in nature. According to the Federal Reserve Payments Study, Americans used credit cards to pay for 26.2 billion purchases in 2012.

No Match for Machine Learning: How the Future of Computing is Solving Difficult Problems from Terrorism to Cancer to Climate Change

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning and the artificial intelligence that it promises to deliver are clearly here to stay. The only remaining question is what will these technologies conquer next? The algorithms and techniques that have been exciting researchers and practitioners over the last few years are being dramatically improved, tuned for perfection, and in some cases completely replaced by a new generation of increasingly powerful algorithms. The investments in areas such as deep learning and the promise of building multi-layer perceptron (or artificial neurons) to solve a host of challenging problems has started to move out of dusty offices and laboratories toward the center of our economy in areas such as healthcare, marketing, communications, finance, energy, education, and even public safety. The number of useful applications is growing rapidly and the benefits of early investments by technology giants and influential research institutions are paying off nicely.
