Inpixon Announces Adding Video Camera Data Feed into Indoor Positioning Analytics

#artificialintelligence

Sensor fusion is the use of sensory data from multiple sources, combined into one comprehensive result for more accurate, complete, and dependable, business intelligence and security applications. "IoT devices, security cameras and other data capture sensors are practically everywhere," said Nadir Ali, CEO of Inpixon. "The challenge is to filter the information captured by those devices, so it can be processed and analyzed in a meaningful way. Inpixon has extensive experience in radio frequency data fusion, which we believe we can leverage due to the similarities between radio waves and the light waves captured by CCTV cameras. "Location is the lynchpin," continued Mr. Ali. "To know what's going on in your building -- for security purposes, for sales or customer service purposes, or for applications like location-based marketing or augmented reality -- you must know the location of persons and electronic devices in your space.

New book recounts origins, mechanisms of artificial intelligence Media Relations and Communications

#artificialintelligence

This article was written by a human being who click-clacked on a keyboard until she finished a draft and sent it to an editor. But more and more, computers are taking over. In fact, the Associated Press has used "automation technology" to cover college sports since 2015. The idea isn't new--humans have obsessed over artificial intelligence (AI) since at least the 18th century, when the "Mechanical Turk" hoax led many to believe that a machine could play chess against a person and win. About 250 years later, a machine can play chess against a person and win--every time.

Machine learning cybersecurity startup Darktrace raises $50M on $1.65B valuation - SiliconANGLE

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning cybersecurity startup Darktrace Ltd. said today it has raised $50 million in new late-stage funding on a valuation of $1.65 billion to further international expansion and development. The Series E round was led by Vitruvian Partners and included existing investors KKR and 1011 Ventures. Founded in 2013, Darktrace pitches itself as the leader in "Enterprise Immune System Technology" with a cybersecurity product that tackles advanced cyberthreats using a machine learning platform developed at the United Kingdom's University of Cambridge. Differentiating itself from others in the market, Darktrace claims its platform is based on the "biological principles of the human immune system." It also says the platform can learn "self," which is said to constitute "the normal pattern of life for the organization, its users and devices – and detecting subtle deviations from this normal behavior, which suggest a compromise, breach or cyber-attack."

M12-backed TwentyBN raises $10 million to help AI interpret human behavior

#artificialintelligence

Robots are a staple of industry; the International Federation of Robotics predicts that 1.7 million of them will find a home in factory floors worldwide by 2020. In order to work safely and effectively alongside human employees, they have to be painstakingly taught rules accounting for every potential scenario they might encounter. Twenty Billion Neurons (TwentyBN), a three-year-old a startup with offices in Berlin and Canada, believes there's a better way. It today announced a $10 million funding round led by M12, Microsoft's venture fund, with participation from Coparion, Creative Edge, and MFV Partners. CEO and chief scientist Roland Memisevic said it'll use the new capital to scale its business.


Iveda Introduces Patented Next-Gen AI Search Technology for Video Surveillance - Iveda - Enabling Cloud Video Surveillance

#artificialintelligence

This new offering is available to service providers such as security integrators, telecoms and alarm and monitoring companies for reselling to their customers. IvedaAI includes a powerful self-contained server with artificial intelligence (AI) software, capable of searching a combination of objects from dozens to thousands of cameras in less than one second. Video analytics have been around for many years, but adoption has been slow because of inaccuracies and high cost. IvedaAI employs 30 patents in AI, big data analytics and cloud computing. It applies a deep learning algorithm (trained, not programmed), automates processes and uses natural language.


AnyVision AI startup locks in $28M for its body and facial recognition tech
