Researchers improve robot-assisted surgery with AI

#artificialintelligence

Robot-assisted surgery promises nothing short of a paradigm shift in medicine. In subfields from urology and gynecology to cardiothoracic and pediatric surgery, it's enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures without having to resort to laparotomy (surgical incisions into the abdomen). Better still, surgical robots contain cameras that capture every knife and needle movement and suture stitch, contributing to a video library that could be used to train gesture recognition systems for skills assessments, step-by-step instruction, and automation of pre- and post-operative tasks. The trouble is, state-of-the-art methods for action recognition require samples like videos to be manually labeled, which tends to be both time-consuming and error-prone. By way of background, neural networks consist of neurons that are arranged in layers and transmit signals to other neurons.


Raspberry Pi Robotics Projects, Second Edition - Programmer Books

#artificialintelligence

This book starts with the essentials of turning on the basic hardware. It provides the capability to interpret your commands and have your robot initiate actions. In this second edition, you will learn more specifics on how to use the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins to communicate with and control a wide range of additional hardware. Teaching you to use the Raspberry Pi from scratch, this book will discuss a wide range of capabilities that can be achieved with it. These capabilities include voice recognition, human-like speech simulation, computer vision, motor control, GPS location, and wireless control.


Machine Learning Coursera

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself.


RMIT partners with NAB and Palo Alto Networks for new cybersecurity course

ZDNet

The smartest companies now approach cybersecurity with a risk management strategy. Learn how to make policies to protect your most important digital assets. The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) has announced a new online course on cybersecurity in a bid to address Australia's cybersecurity skills shortage. As part of the course, RMIT Online has partnered with the National Australia Bank (NAB) and Palo Alto Networks, with both organisations to provide mentors for the course. The course, called Cyber Security Risk and Strategy, will cover topics such as the fundamentals of cybersecurity and how to apply cybersecurity risk mitigation strategies to an organisation.


5 cheap online courses that could help you land a job in AI

Mashable

These days, pundits galore are proselytizing about the Future of Work. Depending on who you ask, the robots may or may not be taking over, leaving us mere humans pondering how work fits into our lives and whether we're going to be eventually rendered obsolete. Just look at the stark contrast in tone between these two headlines: the Wall Street Journal's White-Collar Robots Are Coming For Jobs versus Wired's Chill: Robots Won't Take All Our Jobs. Who should we *really* believe?! The truth is there isn't one easy answer.


Humans Still Wanted Despite Advances In Automation

#artificialintelligence

Mark Cahill, managing director for the ManpowerGroup, UK, commented that companies were deploying a myriad of approaches to upskill their existing workforce and build talent further, with many employers turning to long-term training courses. Online learning management systems are a popular channel for organizations to use, providing mass content which is especially useful for onboarding, compliance and cybersecurity training. Companies need to promote a culture of learning, provide career guidance, and offer short, focused upskilling opportunities. People need to know how to prepare for high growth roles of the future and that their employer supports their learning. As well as providing internal in-person and online training, companies can tap into external resources by partnering with organizations such as schools, universities and industry bodies to build communities of talent." The report also found that demand for IT skills is growing significantly: 16% of employers expect to increase headcount in IT, five times more than those expecting a decrease. The vast majority of employers in the U.S plan to increase or maintain headcount as a result of automation. Upskilling is on the rise, with 76% of companies planning to upskill their workforce by 2020, up from 28% in 2011. In the UK, 95% of employers are planning to increase or maintain headcount as a result of automation, according to the report. The research found that companies that are digitalizing are growing and this growth is producing more and new kinds of jobs. Cahill argued that the narrative around automation and AI "stealing our jobs" couldn't be further from the truth. As robots enter the workforce, they are transforming jobs but equally creating more employment opportunities as well. Every industry needs to accept this revolution is here to stay. Employers need to work out how to manage the shift and get humans to collaborate with machines."


GDS Academy launches new course: Introduction to artificial intelligence in government

Learn Robotic Process Automation with RPA tutorials for beginners

#artificialintelligence

The UiPath Basic Concept Series, the first RPA tutorial for beginners, introduces you to the three main products that make up our RPA platform: UiPath Studio, UiPath Robot, and UiPath Orchestrator. UiPath Studio is an advanced tool that allows users to design automation processes in a visual way through diagrams. UiPath Robot then executes those processes either unattended (without human supervision) or attended (with a human's action triggering the process). This initial tutorial covers the multiple types of workflows and activities available in Studio (sequences, flowcharts, and transactional business processes) to tailor your process to your needs. It also teaches you the basics of recorder functionality, which is often the easiest way to create workflows.
