Underwater Object Segmentation Using MonkAI


This project focuses on segmenting different objects such as animals, plants, plastic, and ROV(Remotely Operated Vehicle) using a low code wrapper Monk [2]toolkit via Unet[1]. It is essential to understand the sea garbage collection. For employing an automatic river or sea trash cleaner system should have a proper understanding of different objects present in the water. This project helps to develop such a system on small scale. Through this blog, I will share some insights about MonkAI, and how it can be used to simplify the process of object segmentation and build other computer vision applications.

Could the Abrams live until 2030 and beyond?

Tesla's 'Full Self-Driving' Is 99.9% There, Just 1,000 Times Further To Go


This week, Tesla TSLA released a very limited beta of what Elon Musk has referred to as "feature complete full self-driving" to a chosen subset of their early access customers. It also announced a $2,000 increase in the price of the "FSD in the future" package it sells today to car owners, giving them access to this software when it's ready. The package is impressing many of these owners. A few have posted videos to Youtube showing the system in operation on city streets. In spite of the name, "full" self driving is neither self-driving nor full as most people in the industry would refer to it.

Self-Driving Cars Are the Next Battle In the EV Wars


The next phase of EV competition won't be about battery range, styling, or zero-to-60 acceleration. It's going to be about which cars are smarter. Figuring out winners and losers will have big implications for investor portfolios. Xpeng opened its event by showcasing smartcabin software technology. Drivers can adjust things such as the direction of air-conditioning vents by talking to the virtual assistant.

Go Beyond Artificial Intelligence: Why Your Business Needs Augmented Intelligence


The nasal test for Covid-19 requires a nurse to insert a 6-inch long swab deep into your nasal passages. Now, imagine that your nurse is a robot. A few months ago, a nasal swab robot was developed by Brain Navi, a Taiwanese startup. The company's intent was to minimize the spread of infection by reducing staff-patient contact. So, here we have a robot autonomously navigating the probe down into your throat, and carefully avoiding channels that lead up to the eyes.

[P] Sidewalk-following "SDC" with AOgmaNeo clips


This is using a biological-type AI system I developed at Ogma called AOgmaNeo (Arduino-compatible OgmaNeo). It is the latest implementation of SPH (Sparse Predictive Hierarchies) I have done. This isn't the final video, so I posted it on my personal channel. Hopefully a more produced one will be made soon! While it can also run on Arduino (some demos for that soon hopefully), this video is using a Pi 4, which does both training and inference in real-time (60fps) as the robot drives.

Can AI and Robotics Disrupt the Defence Industry?


The defence industry technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are changing the industry and enable intelligent warfare in the decades to come. These emerging technologies will have a significant impact on defence contractors. Integrating AI into the design of traditional battle networks will immensely improve the performance of current platforms and forces soon. Prime contractors will maintain an advantage during this phase. However, as robotics and AI's capabilities arrive at an inflection point, the U.S Department of Defence will switch to smaller AI-and robotics-based systems.

Artificial intelligence anticipates how instruments are used during surgery


In the operating theater of the future, computer-based assistance systems will make work processes simpler and safer and thereby play a much greater role than today. "However, such support features are only possible if computers are able to anticipate important events in the operating room and provide the right information at the right time," explains Prof. Stefanie Speidel. She is head of the Department of Translational Surgical Oncology at the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC) in Germany. Together with the Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-loop (CeTI) at TU Dresden, she has developed a method that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to enable computers to anticipate the usage of surgical instruments before they are used. This kind of system does not just provide an important basis for the use of autonomous robotic systems that could take over simple minor tasks in the operating theater, such as blood aspiration.

Army of avatar robots readies to invade Japanese job market


Japanese startups are getting ready to deploy a small army of remote-controlled robots in the workplace. Called avatar robots, the machines are still experimental and their initial objectives limited. But if everything goes as planned, they could soon be clerking at convenience stores, patrolling buildings as security guards, or even assisting astronauts in outer space. The technology has the potential to replace humans, helping solve labor shortages and providing relief to essential workers combating natural disasters. Convenience stores in Tokyo have already put prototypes of the robots to work stocking shelves with beverages, instant noodles and other goods.
