BlueHalo Awarded $24M Contract for TITAN C-UAS Systems – sUAS News – The Business of Drones - Channel969


The Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded BlueHalo Titan Defense a $24M contract to procure multiple Titan C-UAS systems. Titan, BlueHalo's AI/ML-powered RF-based Counter-Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) solution, is the DoD's recent selection as a Program of Record (POR) capability. Incorporation into the POR and this subsequent award serves as a milestone achievement for the Titan system after providing uncompromised C-UAS force protection to America's servicemen and women abroad in all Combatant Commands, as well as critical homeland defense in the United States for over five years. The undisclosed government customer will use Titan systems for pre-deployment activities, mobile security, fixed site protection, and dismounted operations while deployed. "Titan acts as a force multiplier for our troops," said Jonathan Moneymaker, BlueHalo's Chief Executive Officer.

AI Will One Day Make Better Decisions than CEOs, Nobel Laureate Kahneman Says


CEOs and senior executives do not occupy such positions for nothing: they accumulate many years of experience, play a leadership role, and have technical and social-emotional skills. But in the near future, they will have to live with a reality in which strategic business decisions within corporations will also be made by artificial intelligence (AI), according to Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize in economic science in 2002, and considered one of the fathers of so-called behavioral economics. "It won't be long before artificial intelligence is better than people because it learns faster (...) So we can expect that there will be more and more areas where artificial intelligence will become more and more important," Kahneman said in an exclusive interview with Bloomberg Línea by videoconference from the United States. "It will be possible to develop artificial intelligence that can evaluate business proposals at least as well or possibly better than a CEO. There will be a lot of decisions made by artificial intelligence. It hasn't happened yet, but I think that moment is coming," said the emeritus professor of psychology and public relations at Princeton University, who also predicted that there will be a lot of resistance from business leaders who today make the major decisions. Kahneman, 88, will travel to Brazil at the end of the month to participate as the main speaker at Data Driven Business, a data analytics event promoted by Neoway in partnership with B3 (B3SA3).

Google is training its robots to be more like humans

Washington Post - Technology News

In a drab Google office park in Silicon Valley, robots are going to school, using AI algorithms to learn how to play ping pong and clean up after humans.

Google's New Robot Learned to Take Orders by Scraping the Web


Late last week, Google research scientist Fei Xia sat in the center of a bright, open-plan kitchen and typed a command into a laptop connected to a one-armed, wheeled robot resembling a large floor lamp. The robot promptly zoomed over to a nearby countertop, gingerly picked up a bag of multigrain chips with a large plastic pincer, and wheeled over to Xia to offer up a snack. The most impressive thing about that demonstration, held in Google's robotics lab in Mountain View, California, was that no human coder had programmed the robot to understand what to do in response to Xia's command. Its control software had learned how to translate a spoken phrase into a sequence of physical actions using millions of pages of text scraped from the web. That means a person doesn't have to use specific preapproved wording to issue commands, as can be necessary with virtual assistants such as Alexa or Siri.

Your next Lyft in Las Vegas might be a driverless EV


Motional's driverless Ioniq 5 is entering service earlier than expected. On Tuesday, the company and Lyft announced that the vehicle is ready to begin offering rides to the public, starting with residents and visitors to Las Vegas. With today's announcement, the Ioniq 5 is the first fully electric autonomous vehicle to join Lyft's network. In Las Vegas, Motional, a joint venture between Hyundai and Aptiv, had been testing autonomous vehicles without safety drivers since 2020. With its public launch, the Ioniq 5 is fully integrated into Lyft's software.

Artificial intelligence use poses an ESG headache for global financial industry


Artificial intelligence (AI) is often touted as the cure-all for financial services firms' ability to deal with the looming data onslaught stemming from environmental, social & governance (ESG) regulation. Yet ESG also poses an existential threat to the financial services industry's use of AI The European Union's Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation has required asset management firms to begin collecting millions of data points from the companies in which they invest, and the forthcoming Corporate Sustainable Reporting Directive will only add to the volume of data points. Further, there is the data being collected under the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) initiative and the International Sustainability Standards Board's plans to create a baseline for ESG reporting. Taken all together and it becomes clear that AI-enabled systems will be essential to firms' efforts to make sense of -- and profit from -- all these requirements. The carbon footprint from storing and processing data is enormous and growing, algorithms have already been shown to discriminate against certain groups in the population, and a lack of technology skills in both senior management ranks and the general workforce leave firms vulnerable to mistakes.

Artificial Intelligence Is All Around Us. So This District Designed Its Own AI Curriculum


The description of "artificial intelligence in high school" may conjure up a science fiction novel where robots stand around chatting at their lockers. The reality, at Seckinger High School in Gwinnett County, Ga., looks more like this: A social studies teacher pauses a lesson on the spread of cholera in the 19th century to discuss how data scientists use AI tools today to track diseases. A math class full of English-language learners uses machine learning to identify linear and non-linear shapes. The simplest explanation of this technology is that it trains a machine to do tasks that simulate some of what the human brain can do. That means it can learn to do things like recognize faces and voices (helpful for radiology, security, and more), understand natural language, and even make recommendations.
