C3 AI Launches Ex Machina to Offer Business Insights With No Code AI - The NFA Post


Bengaluru, NFAPost: C3 AI (NYSE: AI), one of the leading Enterprise AI software provider, today announced the general availability of C3 AI Ex Machina, a next-generation predictive analytics application that empowers anyone to develop, scale, and produce AI-based insights without writing code. Analysts, operators, and subject matter experts across all industries and business functions are increasingly required to develop predictive and prescriptive insights compiled from vast and disparate datasets. While there are many no-code tools available that lower the barrier for users to build ML models and perform data analysis, none provide end-to-end capabilities that enable them to capture and process the volume and variety of data required, automatically generate interpretable AI models, and productise, deploy, and scale the results across their company. Current predictive analytics tools are typically complicated to use and limit the ability of their insights to drive real business outcomes. Con Edison's data analysts use C3 AI Ex Machina to identify malfunctioning meters in near-real-time, realizing significant business value.

BEL adopts artificial intelligence to tackle internal security challenges


Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) is increasingly adopting the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to throw up advanced technological solutions to internal security challenges. The Bengaluru-headquartered company may be known as a radar company, but its embrace of AI technologies is resulting in increasingly smaller but advanced inventions. During a recent interaction at Defexpo 2020 in Lucknow, the company showed DH its new Command Control System (CCS), which can track Persons of Interest (PoI) in public spaces such as airports and railway stations. "The CCS is more than a video monitoring system. Its AI system can determine anomalous behavior, identify persons of interest through their gestures or body language and even gauge their emotional state by scanning their faces," said a BEL officer.

Using drones, AI and big data, India to draw up digital map with 10 cms resolution India News - Times of India


BENGALURU: India has initiated a project to digitally map the country with a resolution of 10 centimetres, using drones and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and big data, a senior government official said on Monday. The herculean task was taken up by the Survey of India, part of the Department of Science and Technology, a few months ago and is planned to be completed in two years, the department's secretary, Prof Ashutosh Sharma said. "...now we are equipping them (Survey of India) with the latest technologies like drones, Artificial Intelligence, big data analytics, image processing and continuously operated reference system", he told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

Increase in flexi-staff hiring may eat into IT industry's margins


Bengaluru: A move toward project-based work is prompting Indian information technology (IT) services companies to adopt the flexi or contractual staff model while hiring professionals in high-tech areas, spelling rising costs for companies. According to the latest talent market research by Infosys, called Talent Radar 2019, the top five technical skills in demand in digital projects are: analytics, user experience, automation, IT architecture and artificial intelligence. Companies like Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, Infosys Ltd, Wipro Ltd, HCL Technologies Ltd and Tech Mahindra Ltd have adopted this model in varying degrees. The sector's flexi workforce is expected to grow to 720,000 by 2021 from half a million in 2018, according to ISF. To be sure, the move toward contract hires has been a trend across industries, but it has become more visible in IT of late because of a rise in project-based work.

India plans face recognition technology to decongest airports

Al Jazeera

The Indian government plans to decongest its airports by introducing facial recognition technology next year - a proposal that may once again raise privacy concerns in the South Asian country. India's ministry of civil aviation on Thursday said passengers on domestic flights will be able to choose to use their biometric authentication system and go paperless. "Security will benefit from the ability of the technology to verify the passenger at every checkpoint in a non-intrusive way," ministry secretary Rajiv Nayan Choubey said in a statement. The proposal says passengers would be verified by being photographed at every stage of the check-in process - from entering the airport to proceeding through security and boarding the plane. The India government statement said the biometric technology will be introduced first at Bengaluru and Hyderabad airports by February next year, followed by Kolkata, Varanasi, Pune and Vijayawada by April.

Realty firms tap AI, big data to push sales
