Baidu and Huawei are building an open AI ecosystem for smartphones - SiliconANGLE

#artificialintelligence

Chinese tech giants Baidu Inc. and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. announced today that they're teaming up to build an open artificial intelligence ecosystem for mobile devices. The two companies said they want to create platform that fosters the development of mobile AI that "knows you better." The new ecosystem will combine Baidu Brain, which is the catch-all term for Baidu's various AI tools, with Huawei's HiAI mobile computing platform. The project will also take advantage of the AI-focused hardware components that Huawei installs in its latest smartphone models. "The future is all about smart devices that will actively serve us, not just respond to what we tell them to do," Richard Yu (pictured, right), chief executive of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, said in a statement.


The Intelligent Combination of 5G Technology and Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Despite the fact that it's as yet quite a while away from widespread deployment, 5G is a critical segment in the development of cloud-computing ecosystems toward more distributed environments. Between now and 2025, the networking industry will contribute about $1 trillion worldwide on 5G, supporting quick worldwide adoption of mobile, edge, and embedded devices in essentially every circle of our lives. It will be a demonstrating ground for cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI), offering an environment within which data-driven algorithms will control each cloud-driven process, device, and experience. Similarly as huge, AI will be a vital segment in guaranteeing that 5G networks are enhanced from start to finish, 24 7. Many believe that 5G internet and artificial intelligence will change the world.


5G Has Arrived. What Is It and How Does It Work?

#artificialintelligence

By now, you've probably heard about 5G and the new high-speed cellular networks that are spreading to every corner of the country. But what's all the hype about, and is it really as groundbreaking as your cellular provider makes it seem? Here's a simple breakdown of what 5G is, and how it works. As the term implies, 5G is the fifth generation of wireless telecommunications. If you've had a cell phone for the last decade or so, you probably remember the switch from 3G to 4G, which started in the early 2010s.


How Apple Built 5G Into Its New iPhones

WIRED

In introducing its first 5G phones on Tuesday, Apple said it had tested them on more than 100 networks. That's a significant achievement, because 5G operates across a confusing patchwork of frequencies, meaning Apple had to pack additional chips, radio frequency filters, and multiple antennas into the iPhone 12. The road to 5G has been less impressive than advertised so far, paved with meh speeds and patchy coverage, largely because the technology is so fragmented. "There is one standard, but it can be interpreted in different ways." Apple did its best to sell people on the potential of 5G when unveiling its new phones, showing how it could make a smartphone behave like a game console by offloading computation.


Startups Spurring Innovation in Connected Car Technology

Humans are not perfect drivers; we are vulnerable to many physical and emotional factors influencing our driving behavior. A study suggests that many road accidents occur due to a lack of response time for drivers. In order to make informed judgments, drivers need a smart assistance system that can predict a possible event beforehand and prevent a fatal crash or serious injuries. V2X is an intelligent transport system comprising of Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) communications. Biometric seat technology; autonomously managed municipality; and highway system are also part of advanced IoT technologies.


Learning Compact Visual Descriptors for Low Bit Rate Mobile Landmark Search

AI Magazine

Coming with the ever growing computational power of mobile devices, mobile visual search have undergone an evolution in techniques and applications. A significant trend is low bit rate visual search, where compact visual descriptors are extracted directly over a mobile and delivered as queries rather than raw images to reduce the query transmission latency. In this article, we introduce our work on low bit rate mobile landmark search, in which a compact yet discriminative landmark image descriptor is extracted by using location context such as GPS, crowd-sourced hotspot WLAN, and cell tower locations. The compactness originates from the bag-of-words image representation, with an offline learning from geotagged photos from online photo sharing websites including Flickr and Panoramio. The learning process involves segmenting the landmark photo collection by discrete geographical regions using Gaussian mixture model, and then boosting a ranking sensitive vocabulary within each region, with an "entropy" based descriptor compactness feedback to refine both phases iteratively.


The Growing Importance of Conversational AI

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) conversational platforms are changing the manner in which organizations engage their clients and empower their employees. Modern day's intelligent assistants are now loaded with skills. They can check the climate, traffic and sports scores. They can play music, interpret words and send text messages. They can even do the math, make jokes and read stories.

Is Artificial Intelligence(AI) making us lazy or efficient? I think it's making us efficient. Due to COVID-19, people are more often found interacting with their peers via social media and text messages. For instance, my push notifications are up by 37%, and positively enough I have reconnected with my school friends, old friends per se. However, this arose a problem of constantly sticking to my phone and suffering from Nomophobia and Phantom vibration syndrome.


Top 10 Digital Transformation Trends For 2021

#artificialintelligence

No one could have predicted where 2020 would take us: The last six months alone have produced more digital transformation than the last decade, with every transformation effort already underway finding itself accelerated, and at scale. While many of my digital transformation predictions from a year ago benefited from this shift, others were displaced by more urgent needs, like 24/7 secure and reliable connectivity. What does this mean for 2021? Will core technologies like AI and data analytics still dominate headlines, or will we see newer, previously emerging technologies take the lead? Only time will tell, but here are my top ten digital transformation predictions for 2021.
