How AI and machine learning are reshaping the way transit systems move traffic patterns – REJournals

#artificialintelligence

Of the many ways artificial intelligence and machine learning are poised to improve modern life, the promise of impacting mass transit is significant. The world is much different compared with the early days of the pandemic, and people around the world are again leveraging mobility and transit systems for work, leisure and more. Across the U.S., traditional mass transit systems including buses, subways and personal vehicles have returned to struggling through gridlock, rider levels and congestion. However, advanced AI and machine learning solutions built on cloud-based platforms are being deployed to reduce these frustrations. Transportation is one of the most important areas in which modern AI provides a significant advantage over conventional algorithms used in traditional transit system technology.


Amazon flexes retail muscle with physical clothing store – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Signaling its ambitions to make a dent in the apparel market, Amazon today opened its first physical clothing store, Amazon Style, in the Greater Los Angeles Area. Offering a twist on the traditional experience, visitors to the Glendale, California shop at The Americana At Brand use an app to scan codes on displayed items from Steve Madden, Levi's, Lacoste and other brands to send them directly to a fitting room or pickup counter. As TechCrunch previously reported, Amazon Style features hundreds of brands chosen by "fashion creators" and "feedback provided by millions of customers shopping on Amazon.com." Scanning the QR code next to an item pops up a selector for sizes and colors, as well as details such as customer ratings and adds the item to a list for later perusing. Amazon Style doesn't use the cashierless "Just Walk Out" tech found in Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods locations, instead opting for Amazon's controversial Amazon One palm recognition service.


Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Patent Application filings continue their explosive growth trend at the U.S. Patent Office (USPTO). At the end of 2020, the USPTO published a report finding an exponential increase in the number of patent application filings from 2002 to 2018. In addition, current data shows that AI-related application filings pertaining to graphics and imaging are taking the lead over AI modeling and simulation applications. In the last quarter of 2020, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) reported that patent filings for Artificial Intelligence (AI) related inventions more than doubled from 2002 to 2018.

Is Artificial Intelligence Made in Humanity's Image? Lessons for an AI Military Education - War on the Rocks

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence is not like us. For all of AI's diverse applications, human intelligence is not at risk of losing its most distinctive characteristics to its artificial creations. Yet, when AI applications are brought to bear on matters of national security, they are often subjected to an anthropomorphizing tendency that inappropriately associates human intellectual abilities with AI-enabled machines. A rigorous AI military education should recognize that this anthropomorphizing is irrational and problematic, reflecting a poor understanding of both human and artificial intelligence. The most effective way to mitigate this anthropomorphic bias is through engagement with the study of human cognition -- cognitive science.


The case for placing AI at the heart of digitally robust financial regulation

#artificialintelligence

"Data is the new oil." Originally coined in 2006 by the British mathematician Clive Humby, this phrase is arguably more apt today than it was then, as smartphones rival automobiles for relevance and the technology giants know more about us than we would like to admit. Just as it does for the financial services industry, the hyper-digitization of the economy presents both opportunity and potential peril for financial regulators. On the upside, reams of information are newly within their reach, filled with signals about financial system risks that regulators spend their days trying to understand. The explosion of data sheds light on global money movement, economic trends, customer onboarding decisions, quality of loan underwriting, noncompliance with regulations, financial institutions' efforts to reach the underserved, and much more. Importantly, it also contains the answers to regulators' questions about the risks of new technology itself. Digitization of finance generates novel kinds of hazards and accelerates their development. Problems can flare up between scheduled regulatory examinations and can accumulate imperceptibly beneath the surface of information reflected in traditional reports. Thanks to digitization, regulators today have a chance to gather and analyze much more data and to see much of it in something close to real time. The potential for peril arises from the concern that the regulators' current technology framework lacks the capacity to synthesize the data. The irony is that this flood of information is too much for them to handle.

Artificial intelligence tool identifies lung cancer risk

#artificialintelligence

As artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies continue to be developed, they may become powerful tools in many fields, including that of medicine. AI, complementing human experience and judgement, has already shown promise as a prognostic tool. Recent research using an AI program to help identify, from the results of chest scans, the risk of lung cancer is an example of the technique in action. Lung cancer is the second most common form of cancer worldwide, according to the World Cancer Research Fund. In Australia, it is the leading cause of cancer deaths and Cancer Australia estimates lung cancer accounted for 17.7% of all deaths from cancer in 2021.


Why AI-enabled decision-making is the next step in the supply chain digitalisation journey

#artificialintelligence

As a result, companies have gone through a decade's worth of digital transformation in just a matter of months, with the pandemic forcing them to refresh archaic processes with AI, machine learning, and data science technologies. Such technological advancements will continue to evolve and further establish themselves as a critical component to managing complex logistical landscapes – from improving efficiency and mitigating the effects of a global labour shortage, to identifying more robust and dependable ways to move commodities. In a world where uncertainty is the only certainty, AI-enabled order and inventory visibility across shipments will also be vital to'keep the wheels in motion.' Most importantly, to provide real-time updates on changes to arrival times and to identify potential disruptions before and as they occur. Take the recent congestion issues at the Port of Los Angeles, for example.
