Cybersecurity mesh provides decentralized safety and swarm AI for remote-first enterprises - Channel969


Be a part of executives from July 26-28 for Remodel's AI & Edge Week. Hear from high leaders talk about matters surrounding AL/ML know-how, conversational AI, IVA, NLP, Edge, and extra. Cybersecurity mesh has been named a high strategic know-how development for 2022 by Gartner. In line with Gartner's report, cybersecurity mesh is a cutting-edge conceptual safety structure methodology that permits right this moment's scattered enterprises to increase and implement safety the place it's most wanted. David Carvalho, CEO and founding father of cybersecurity community Naoris Protocol, instructed VentureBeat through e-mail that cybersecurity mesh is a versatile, composable structure that integrates broadly distributed safety companies.

Complete Step-by-step Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm from Scratch


The particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is a population-based search algorithm based on the simulation of the social behavior of birds within a flock. The initial intent of the particle swarm concept was to graphically simulate the graceful and unpredictable choreography of a bird flock, to discover patterns that govern the ability of birds to fly synchronously, and to suddenly change direction by regrouping in an optimal formation. From this initial objective, the concept evolved into a simple and efficient optimization algorithm. So, just like the Genetic Algorithm, PSO is inspired by nature. In PSO, individuals, also referred to as particles, are "flown" through hyperdimensional search space. Changes to the position of particles within the search space are based on the social-psychological tendency of individuals to emulate the success of other individuals.

Implementing the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) Algorithm in Python


There are lots of definitions of AI. According to the Merrian-Webster dictionary, Artificial Intelligence is a large area of computer science that simulates intelligent behavior in computers. Based on this, an algorithm implementation based on metaheuristic called Particle Swarm Optimization (originaly proposed to simulate birds searching for food, the movement of fishes' shoal, etc.) is able to simulate behaviors of swarms in order to optimize a numeric problem iteratively. It can be classified as a swarm intelligence algorithm like Ant Colony Algorithm, Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm and Bacterial Foraging, for example. Proposed in 1995 by J. Kennedy an R.Eberhart, the article "Particle Swarm Optimization" became very popular due his continue optimization process allowing variations to multi targets and more.

Features of a smart city


A smart city is a city that uses technology to provide services and solve city problems. The main goals of a smart city are to improve policy efficiency, reduce waste and inconvenience, improve social and economic quality, and maximize social inclusion. Due to the breadth of technologies that have been implemented under the smart city label, it is difficult to distill a precise definition of a smart city. As the world's population continues to urbanize – by 2050, 66% of the world's population is expected to be urban – there is a global trend toward the creation of smart cities. This tendency not only causes many physical, social, behavioural, economic, and infrastructure issues, but it also creates many opportunities.

2022 Doherty Award Recipient Howie Choset Kavčić-Moura Professor of Computer Science - The Robotics Institute Carnegie Mellon University

CMU School of Computer Science

Howie Choset is a Professor of Robotics where he serves as the co-director, along with Matt Travers, of the Biorobotics Lab. Choset's research program has made contributions to strategically significant problems in surgery, manufacturing, on-orbit maintenance, recycling and search and rescue. His work is most famous for its snake robots and other biologically inspired systems and recently his group has been contributing to robotic modularity, multi-agent planning, information-based search, and skill learning. Currently, Choset's projects include: medical support in the field, expeditionary robotics, on-orbit maintenance and construction of structures in space, rapidly carrying heavy objects up several flights of stairs, recycling of E-waste, food preparation, "edge"-sensing, and aerospace painting. Choset has led multi-PI projects centered on manufacturing: (1) automating the programming of robots for auto-body painting; (2) the development of mobile manipulators for agile and flexible fixture-free manufacturing of large structures in aerospace, and (3) the creation of a data-robot ecosystem for rapid manufacturing in the commercial electronics industry.

Oscars 2022: Who Got More Winners Right, AI or the Movie Experts?


Every year for the last six years, Unanimous AI has been more accurate than movie critics at predicting Oscar winners. It uses swarm intelligence the power of interactive group decisions enhanced by AI – to transform regular people into expert decision-makers. How did it do this year? Unanimous AI took a group of regular movie fans and created a'hive mind' in which their combined choices are smarter than those of any individual member. "We can take a group of people and turn them into a super organism," founder Louis Rosenberg told IoT World Today's sister publication AI Business.

The application of Evolutionary and Nature Inspired Algorithms in Data Science and Data Analytics Artificial Intelligence

In the past 30 years, scientists have searched nature, including animals and insects, and biology in order to discover, understand, and model solutions for solving large-scale science challenges. The study of bionics reveals that how the biological structures, functions found in nature have improved our modern technologies. In this study, we present our discovery of evolutionary and nature-inspired algorithms applications in Data Science and Data Analytics in three main topics of pre-processing, supervised algorithms, and unsupervised algorithms. Among all applications, in this study, we aim to investigate four optimization algorithms that have been performed using the evolutionary and nature-inspired algorithms within data science and analytics. Feature selection optimization in pre-processing section, Hyper-parameter tuning optimization, and knowledge discovery optimization in supervised algorithms, and clustering optimization in the unsupervised algorithms.

A Survey of Methods for Automated Algorithm Configuration Artificial Intelligence

Algorithm configuration (AC) is concerned with the automated search of the most suitable parameter configuration of a parametrized algorithm. There is currently a wide variety of AC problem variants and methods proposed in the literature. Existing reviews do not take into account all derivatives of the AC problem, nor do they offer a complete classification scheme. To this end, we introduce taxonomies to describe the AC problem and features of configuration methods, respectively. We review existing AC literature within the lens of our taxonomies, outline relevant design choices of configuration approaches, contrast methods and problem variants against each other, and describe the state of AC in industry. Finally, our review provides researchers and practitioners with a look at future research directions in the field of AC.

A multi-domain virtual network embedding algorithm with delay prediction Artificial Intelligence

Virtual network embedding (VNE) is an crucial part of network virtualization (NV), which aims to map the virtual networks (VNs) to a shared substrate network (SN). With the emergence of various delay-sensitive applications, how to improve the delay performance of the system has become a hot topic in academic circles. Based on extensive research, we proposed a multi-domain virtual network embedding algorithm based on delay prediction (DP-VNE). Firstly, the candidate physical nodes are selected by estimating the delay of virtual requests, then particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used to optimize the mapping process, so as to reduce the delay of the system. The simulation results show that compared with the other three advanced algorithms, the proposed algorithm can significantly reduce the system delay while keeping other indicators unaffected.
