Royal Navy plotting fleet of 'killer' robot ships using artificial intelligence

#artificialintelligence

Navy chiefs are planning a fleet of "killer" robot ships which can think for themselves, we can reveal. They will have stealth technology, advanced radar, lasers and rail-guns capable of firing shells at 4,500mph. The vessels will use artificial intelligence – computerised brains – to work out tactics far more quickly than humans. Scientists say they will operate on their own or from a control room on shore – or act as mother ships to a fleet of smaller craft designed to overwhelm conventional ships. The Royal Navy says humans would set the limits of a battle and let the ships do the rest.


Driver Assistance Technologies And Levels Of Autonomy Explained: Viable For India?

#artificialintelligence

Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) is a continuously-on system which detects proximity with obstacles ahead. If the system detects an imminent crash, it warns the driver and primes the braking system. If the driver fails to respond, the car applies the brakes with as much force as necessary to prevent collision. Some AEB systems can also detect cyclists and pedestrians which may be hidden behind a blind spot until its too late. However, this isn't an assistance system -- you can't use an AEB-equipped car to take your foot off the brake in traffic.


Skydio - Impossible Video, Now Possible. Master Data Science

#artificialintelligence

Skydio is an autonomous drone technology company that designs and develops GPS enabled software to navigate drones. Since 2014, Skydio has established its company which specializes in artificial intelligence, robotics and computer vision. Not until 2018 they launched R1 which was considered as a breakthrough in autonomous drones for customers and as a platform for commercial development. Nowadays, they are building autonomous systems, using artificial intelligence to duck under canopies and dive around branches in forests with caution all by itself. Furthermore, not only it is able to avoid obstacles, some other benefits are they provide remarkable pictures no other drones can.


Web Personalisation with Drupal and Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

In this modern age, self-driving cars, voice-based assistants, social media feeds, and more are the tools fuelled by the technological marvel of the 21st century called machine learning. If you wish to learn about the importance of web personalization and how machine learning impacts the Drupal development, then this article is for you. So let's get started to understand what machine learning does and why its demand is proliferating. Machine learning is the field of Artificial Intelligence that focuses on analyzing data and enables making intelligent decisions based on the analysis. It is composed of multiple technologies such as deep learning, neural network, and natural language processing.

The U.S. Navy's New Robo-Boat Has No People, But It Does Have a Very Big Gun

#artificialintelligence

One of the most important but generally overlooked missions of the U.S. Navy is port security. While incidents in peacetime are generally rare, the 2000 terrorist attack on the destroyer USS Cole remains a real danger. Now the Navy is experimenting with using one of its newest unmanned boats as a way to protect warships sitting pierside from attack. In October 2000, the guided-missile destroyer USS Cole was refueling at the port of Aden in Yemen when it came under attack by Al Qaeda terrorists. A small boat loaded with explosives sidled up to the 10,000 ton destroyer and exploded, killing 17 U.S. Navy sailors and injuring 39.

New Iranian Missiles Pose Threat to U.S. Aircraft in Yemen, Pentagon Says

NYT > Middle East

According to an American military official, the 358 missile in flight is about nine feet long and can run on kerosene or diesel fuel contained in flexible containers that do not require a separate fuel pump. A dozen infrared lenses arranged in a ring around the missile are believed to be able to defeat heat-seeking countermeasures that coalition helicopters typically use. Another United States military official said that the 358 missiles from Iran had been fired against American drones flying in Yemeni airspace, but they had not yet succeeded in hitting any. Three of the 358 missiles were captured in November by the Forrest Sherman, a Navy destroyer, and five more were recovered this month in an operation by the Normandy, a Navy cruiser. Those shipments also included more than 170 antitank guided missiles made in Iran, as well as 13,000 blasting caps, which are critical to making modern roadside bombs.
