Are You Prepared for Autonomous Capabilities?

#artificialintelligence

Such capabilities have matured most in the automotive and transportation industries--in fact, 8 million semiautomated or highly automated vehicles could potentially be on the road within 10 years, creating up to US$60 billion in annual revenue. Autonomous systems are greatly impacting industries that respond to a system independently changing its response to perform its intended function, regardless of unanticipated external stimuli or events. A broad spectrum of individual industries is ripe for change due to the expansion. For instance, autonomous IT systems could result in up to 50% savings on total cost of ownership versus their traditional counterparts. Financial technology companies are using AI and predictive modeling to build fraud prevention systems.


The Difference Between Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence

#artificialintelligence

In the past few years, we've seen a massive change in the information and communication, manufacturing, financial and other industries. Technologies like machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) have taken over the world. Many businesses are working day and night to adopt these advanced technologies because the capabilities of machine learning and artificial intelligence continue to expand and hold the potential for creating growth for businesses. The terms AI and ML are used interchangeably and--because of this--millions of people have a lot of misconceptions regarding these terms. These are highly searched terms on the internet, and are often confused to be the same.


Self-driving cars are NOT safe 'while in the wild', says the co-founder of Google's DeepMind

Daily Mail

The co-founder of Google's DeepMind has slammed self-driving cars for not being safe enough, saying current early tests on public roads are irresponsible. Demis Hassabis has urged developers to be cautious with the new technology, saying it is difficult to prove systems are safe before putting them on public roads. The issue of AI in self-driving cars has flared up this year following the death of a women hit but a self-driving Uber in March. The accident was the first time a pedestrian was killed on a public road by an autonomous car, which had previously been praised as the safer alternative to a traditional car. Speaking at the Royal Society in London, Dr Hassabis said current driverless car programmes could be putting people's lives in danger.


27 Incredible Examples Of Artificial Intelligence (AI) And Machine Learning In Practice

#artificialintelligence

There are so many amazing ways artificial intelligence and machine learning are used behind the scenes to impact our everyday lives and inform business decisions and optimize operations for some of the world's leading companies. Here are 27 amazing practical examples of AI and machine learning. Using natural language processing, machine learning and advanced analytics, Hello Barbie listens and responds to a child. A microphone on Barbie's necklace records what is said and transmits it to the servers at ToyTalk. There, the recording is analyzed to determine the appropriate response from 8,000 lines of dialogue.


How machine learning streamlines location data with the Kalman filter - IoT Agenda

#artificialintelligence

We have spoken about machine learning and the internet of things as tools to optimize location analytics in logistics and supply chain management. It's an accepted fact that technology, especially cloud-based, can benefit companies by optimizing routes and predicting the accurate estimated time of arrivals (ETAs). The direct business value of this optimization lies in the streamlining of various fixed and variable costs associated with logistics. The Internet of Things (IoT) world may be exciting, but there are serious technical challenges that need to be addressed, especially by developers. In this handbook, learn how to meet the security, analytics, and testing requirements for IoT applications.


How the IoT is keeping traffic moving and the streetlights shining

ZDNet

The next time your car bottoms out on a nasty pothole, grit your teeth and try to spare a thought for the people trying to end that problem and smooth out your journey. Yotta helps local authorities and utility companies understand their infrastructure - like roads and streetlights - better by surveying and analysing the environment. ZDNet talked to Manish Jethwa, Yotta's chief product and technology officer, to find out more. ZDNet: How would you describe Yotta and the business you are in? Jethwa: We're a technology business that has been around for some 25 years in the highways arena.


Waymo uses machine learning to help self-driving cars see through snow

#artificialintelligence

Now you see it, now you don't! Five minutes into a harrowing cross-state winter drive, I received a warning on the dashboard. All my front-facing sensors and cameras were obscured with ice, rendering the vehicle's numerous active safety systems disabled. Winter can make it extremely hard for sensors to do their jobs, but Waymo has a trick that my car didn't -- machine learning! At this week's Google I/O conference, Waymo discussed how it uses sister company Google's developments in machine learning to help its self-driving vehicles navigate snowy climates.


Preventing Application Fraud with Machine Learning and AI

#artificialintelligence

In 1997, the IBM supercomputer Deep Blue beat chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov. This defeat skyrocketed artificial intelligence (AI) into the headlines. Twenty years on, AI has transformed our daily lives: from the medical field to voice controlled devices that will order your favorite pizza to self-driving autonomous vehicles. But how can it best be used to fight application fraud? It was not much before Deep Blue, in 1992, that FICO pioneered the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to fight credit card fraud.


Vehicle Detection and Tracking using Machine Learning and HOG

#artificialintelligence

I am into my first term of Udacity's Self Driving Car Nanodegree and I want to share my experience regarding the final project of Term 1 i.e. The complete code can be found here. The basic objective of this project is to apply the concepts of HOG and Machine Learning to detect a Vehicle from a dashboard video. Sure, the Deep Learning implementations like YOLO and SSD that utilize convolutional neural network stand out for this purpose but when you are a beginner in this field, its better to start with the classical approach. The most important thing for any machine learning problem is the labelled data set and here we need to have two sets of data: Vehicle and Non Vehicle Images.


Artificial Intelligence: Science fiction to science fact - Connected Magazine

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is quickly growing in importance in the'smart building' sector. Paul Skelton looks at the road ahead for a complex technology. When Mark Chung received an unexpectedly high $500 monthly electricity bill, he turned to his utility for help and answers. However, despite'smart' meters being installed in his home, they were no help. So Mark – an electrical engineer trained at Stanford University – took matters into his own hands.
