#artificialintelligence

As Artificial Intelligence offered its best at the beginning of the pandemic, starting from predicting the outbreak up to monitoring the number of cases, it continues to facilitate all our life aspects for us and our children to be able to work, study, and play safely. Virtual assistants and chatbots have been deployed to support healthcare organisations. The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention and Microsoft have developed a coronavirus self-checker service to help users self-assess COVID-19 and suggest a course of action. AI has been used for checking temperature using; tracking cases and their contacts with facial recognition and smartphones; and tracking the GPS location and itinerary of infected people through mobile phones. You no longer need to physically perform your tasks as AI gives you the ability to control your home or company remotely.


AI-bank of the future: Can banks meet the AI challenge?

#artificialintelligence

In 2016, AlphaGo, a machine, defeated 18-time world champion Lee Sedol at the game of Go, a complex board game requiring intuition, imagination, and strategic thinking--abilities long considered distinctly human. Since then, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies have advanced even further, 1 1. AI can be defined as the ability of a machine to perform cognitive functions associated with human minds (e.g., perceiving, reasoning, learning, and problem solving). It includes various capabilities, such as machine learning, facial recognition, computer vision, smart robotics, virtual agents, and autonomous vehicles. See "Global AI Survey: AI proves its worth, but few scale impact," November 2019, McKinsey.com.


Radiology Initiatives Illustrate Uses for Open Data and Open AI research

#artificialintelligence

Andy OramFans of data in health care often speculate about what clinicians and researchers could achieve by reducing friction in data sharing. What if we had easy access to group repositories, expert annotations and labels, robust and consistent metadata, and standards without inconsistencies? Since 2017, the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) has been displaying a model for such data sharing. That year marked RSNA's first AI challenge. RSNA has worked since then to make the AI challenge an increasingly international collaboration.


How Citizens Experience COVID19 And Why We Need Global Solidarity

#artificialintelligence

I am worried if killing the economies is worth it if we so laxly approach the support for the most affected populations? The economical lockdown around the world has resulted in an increase in violence, a lack of food supply, overloaded healthcare systems, and global panic response that will trigger mental health consequences long after the pandemic is over. Experts agree that government policies need to balance overcoming both the health and economic crisis. In the short run, economic policies should mitigate the impact of lockdowns and ensure that the current crisis does not trigger financial, debt or currency crises. It should facilitate a quick recovery once the economy is taken out of the deep freeze.


University Students Are Learning To Collaborate on AI Projects

#artificialintelligence

This year, artificial intelligence is the buzzword. On university campuses, students who just graduated high school are checking out the latest computer science course offerings to see if they can take classes in machine learning. The truth about the age of Artificial Intelligence has caught many university administrator's attention. In the age of AI, to be successful, everyone, no matter what jobs, skill sets, or majors will at some point encounter AI in their work and their life. Penn State saw the benefits of working on AI projects early, specifically when it comes to teamwork and collaboration.

Open Cities AI Challenge: Segmenting Buildings for Disaster Resilience

#artificialintelligence

As urban populations grow, more people are exposed to the benefits and hazards of city life. One challenge for cities is managing the risk of disasters in a constantly changing built environment. Buildings, roads, and critical infrastructure need to be mapped frequently, accurately, and in enough detail to represent assets important to every community. Knowing where and how assets are vulnerable to damage or disruption by natural hazards is key to disaster risk management (DRM). The Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is a global partnership that provides knowledge, funding, and technical assistance towards achieving the vision of a world where resilient societies manage and adapt to ever-changing disaster and climate risk, and where the human and economic impact of disasters is reduced.


Join the OpenCities AI Challenge and Detect Building Footprints from Aerial Imagery

#artificialintelligence

We partnered with Driven Data and the World Bank to develop the Open Cities AI Challenge. This competition asks contestants to build semantic segmentation models that identify buildings in aerial imagery from several African cities. In other words, the goal is to automatically extract building footprints from each image. Contestants will be judged on the quality of their predictions and will be competing for a share of a combined $15,000 cash prize. Disaster relief efforts rely on accurate and up-to-date infrastructure maps.



2020 Nittany AI Challenge to showcase artificial intelligence's power for good Penn State University

#artificialintelligence

Idea submissions are now being accepted for the 2020 Nittany AI Challenge. Student teams with a wide variety of skill sets are invited to submit their ideas for using artificial intelligence to improve the world by providing solutions for problems within the areas of education, health, sustainability, climate change and humanitarian challenges. Teams selected to participate in the three-phase process will be assisted in developing a minimal viable product (MVP) and have opportunities to receive prizes from a pool of $50,000. The deadline for idea submissions is Jan. Brad Zdenek, innovation strategist for the Nittany AI Alliance, said students do not have to be coders to participate, as each team has a need for various skill sets.
