Does Artificial Intelligence Keep Its Promises?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence sounds freaking amazing: humanoid robots, artificial conscious, self learning systems and understanding the human brain. I won't lie; these were the things that motivated me to look into Artificial Intelligence. And till a certain extent they still do. I started out doing Physics and Life Sciences. One thing that caught my attention was the advancements in the field of so called "Artificial Neural Networks".


LafargeHolcim launches Industry 4.0 for cement production – Australian Bulk Handling Review

#artificialintelligence

LafargeHolcim will implement automation and robotics, artificial intelligence, predictive maintenance and digital twin technologies for its production process. The company is upgrading its production fleet for the future through its'Plants of Tomorrow" program. The program will be rolled out over four years as LafargeHolcim upgrades its technologies in the building materials industry. The company predicts a "Plants of Tomorrow" certified operation will show 15 to 20 percent of operational efficiency gains compared to a conventional cement plant. Among the technologies implemented are predictive operations that can detect abnormal conditions and process anomalies in real-time. This aims to reduce maintenance costs by more than 10 percent and significantly lower energy costs. Digital twins of plants will also be created to optimise training opportunities. Automation and robotics is another important element of the strategy. Unmanned surveillance is being performed for high exposure jobs in the entire plant. Partnering with Swiss start-up Flyability, the company is using drones that allow the frequency of inspections to increase while simultaneously reducing cost and increasing safety for employees by inspecting confined spaces. In addition, the new PACT (Performance and Collaboration) digital tool allows operational decision making from experience-based to data-centric, by combining data from various sources and enabling machine learning applications. LafargeHolcim is currently working on more than 30 pilot projects covering all regions where the company is active. The first integrated cement plant will be at LafargeHolcim's premises in Siggenthal, Switzerland, this plant will test all modules of the'Plants of Tomorrow' program. LafargeHolcim Global Head Cement Manufacturing, Solomon Baumgartner Aviles, said transforming the way we produce cement is one of the focus areas of our digitalisation strategy and the'Plants of Tomorrow' initiative will turn Industry 4.0 into reality at our plants. "These innovative solutions make cement production safer, more efficient and environmentally fit.


Intel Lab Transforms Your Phone into a Robot for $50

#artificialintelligence

Have you ever dreamed of owning a personal robot? Boston Dynamic's doglike Spot would be a great choice were it not for the hefty US$74,500 price tag. But don't worry -- a couple of Intel Labs researchers have proposed a novel method for building a robot called "OpenBot" on just a US$50 budget. Complete design and implementation information has been open-sourced, all you need to supply is the brain and sensory system -- your smartphone. Inspired by projects such as Google Cardboard that plug standard smartphones into cheap physical enclosures, the researchers developed and validated a design for a mobile robot that leverages a smartphone for sensory and computational abilities, communication channels and access to a software ecosystem. The robot is capable of mobile navigation with real-time onboard sensing and computation, and can perform tasks such as person-following and real-time autonomous navigation in unstructured environments.


Vision Processing Units (VPUs)

#artificialintelligence

On my first day working for MILLA, an autonomous shuttle company, I discovered a shuttle that can drive up to 30 km/h; quite an improvement if you compare it to our competitors at the time driving at 5–8 km/h. At the time, the shuttle was new and there was no GPU yet on it. In case you don't know what a GPU is, here's a quick picture that explains it well: A GPU (Graphic Processing Unit) parallels the processes so operations are done faster. In a self-driving car, this can be super useful for computer vision or point cloud processing. It was first released in video games because of the need to display multiple things at the same time.


Top 8 Artificial Intelligence Apps For Your Shopify Store

#artificialintelligence

For many of us, artificial intelligence seems like a distant future where robots will take over our jobs. In reality, AI is already everywhere and many Shopify apps have turned to AI and specifically machine learning to help you work with your data in several different ways. There are currently less than 100 Shopify apps that employ the use of AI for different types of tasks you might need help with from product recommendations to SEO, video creation, and email marketing. We've had an in-depth look at all AI-driven Shopify apps to select 8 of the best ones, each for a different need. Disclaimer: Remember that not all of these artificial intelligence apps will be compatible with your store's settings and theme.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a part of our daily lives -- from language translation to medical diagnostics and driverless cars to facial recognition -- it's making more of an impact on industry and society every day. But what exactly is AI? Simply put, AI is a technology that replicates human intelligence through computers, systems or machines. This is a fairly broad description, however, and different people have different ways of interpreting it. Whatever its description, the concept of AI isn't new and has been around since at least 1950. That was when Alan Turing, an influential computer scientist and mathematician, speculated about AI as'thinking machines'. Turing went on to develop the'Turing test', which identifies artificial intelligence based on a machine's ability to do reasoning puzzles with human-like capabilities.


Amazon's new Ring camera is actually a flying drone -- for inside your home

#artificialintelligence

Ring's Always Home Cam is an indoor security camera drone. Ring on Thursday introduced a new product to its growing roster of smart home devices -- the Ring Always Home Cam. Unlike the Amazon company's other security cameras, the Always Home Cam is a flying camera drone that docks when it isn't in use. The Ring Always Home Cam will be available in 2021 for $250. Along with this hardware announcement, Ring says you'll be able to turn on end-to-end encryption in the Ring app's Control Center "later this year" in an effort to improve the security of its devices.
