How to Improve Computer Vision in AI Drones Using Image Annotation Services?


The Autonomous flying drone uses the computer vision technology to hover in the air avoiding the objects to keep moving on the right path. Apart from security surveillance and Ariel view monitoring, AI drone is now used by online retail giant Amazon to deliver the products at customer's doorstep revolutionizing the transportation and delivery system by logistics and supply chain companies. Cogito and AWS SageMaker Ground Truth have partnered to accelerate your training data pipeline. We are organising a webinar to help you "Build High-Quality Training Data for Computer Vision and NLP Applications".

Twins, Pirates game delayed by drone flying over Target Field

FOX News

How can teams protect players and staff? A drone flew over Target Field prior to the start of a Minnesota Twins and Pittsburgh Pirates game on Tuesday, which forced a delay. According to The Athletic, players were trying to throw baseballs at the drone, but they were unable to hit it. Eventually, it flew out of the stadium, and around one of the parking lots. The umpires made the players get off the field because the drone presents a safety issue.

Big Data Analytics and AI for Social Good


Big data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) have transformed many aspects of our lives. It is no surprise that AI has been generating major media interest all around the world. What is usually less noted is the vital role that artificial intelligence can play in the social sector. AI is already impacting society -- from the way we support our families to the way workers do their jobs, AI is everywhere! Here is everything you need to know about how AI has been impacting our lives when it comes to critical social domains. Agriculture involves a variety of factors that like temperature, soil conditions, weather, and water usage.

The role played by Artificial Intelligence in social sector -


Artificial intelligence is already impacting our lives. And the use of AI for social functioning is on an all-time high. Be it getting riding directions through our smartphone or getting daily reminders by using our health system to extend our workouts; all these are manifestations of how artificial talent is altering the way we function. What is often much less understood is the vast function synthetic brain can play in the social sector. The Artificial Intelligence for social good can probably assist in solving some of the country's most pressing problems. As a count number of facts, it can contribute in some way or every other to tackling and addressing all of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, supporting large sections of the populace in both growing and developed countries. AI is already helping in several real-life situations, from assisting blind humans in navigating and diagnosing cancer to identify sexual harassment victims and helping with catastrophe relief. Let us take a look briefly at integral social domains where AI can be carried out effectively.

Council Post: 14 'Smart City' Tech Features That Will Soon Change Urban Centers


As the Internet of Things continues to permeate more areas of modern life, we've begun to see the rise of the "smart city." These urban areas leverage IoT technology like sensors and beacons to collect data and better manage a city's resources, services and operations. This ultimately makes a city safer and can improve the quality of life for residents. Because this smart city technology is virtually invisible to those who aren't operating it, many outside of the tech industry may not realize the full impact IoT can have on urban life. Below, 14 experts from Forbes Technology Council explain some of the current and upcoming tech innovations that are changing the way cities function.

Drones, sensors and artificial intelligence: St. Louis researchers are pioneering Smart Farm technology


The FieldDock project, led by the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, looks to help scientists and farmers alike to breed and grow crops more efficiently and with less human labor. In mid-July, it received its first major dose of government funding, $1.4 million, from the National Institute for Food and Agriculture and the National Science Foundation.

Can We Make Artificial Intelligence More Ethical?


What are the most pressing issues when it comes to ethics in AI and robotics? How will they affect the way we live (and work)? Sooner or later these issues will concern you, whether you work in the field or not. Here we will go through the main ideas contained in the paper Robot ethics: Mapping the issues for a mechanized world, while I add some of my own input. You will not have many answers, but will probably start asking the right questions.

Top Computer Vision Trends for the Modern Enterprise


The increased sophistication of artificial neural networks (ANNs) coupled with the availability of AI-powered chips have driven am unparalleled enterprise interest in computer vision (CV). This exciting new technology will find myriad applications in several industries, and according to GlobalData forecasts, it would reach a market size of $28bn by 2030. The increasing adoption of AI-powered computer vision solutions, consumer drones; and the rising Industry 4.0 adoption will drive this phenomenal change. Deep learning has bought a new change in the role of machine vision used for smart manufacturing and industrial automation. The integration of deep learning propels machine vision systems to adapt itself to manufacturing variations.

Flying drones with your thoughts: How mind-reading technology will change the face of warfare


For years, researchers have been exploring the potential for brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) – systems that connect up the human brain to external technology – to restore movement to people with paralysed limbs, using electrode arrays implanted directly on the brain's surface. In the future, however, US government-backed research could enable the use of BCIs without any surgery at all – and they may first see use as a way of giving soldiers an advantage on the battlefield. DARPA, the US military's R&D unit, which launched its Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program in 2018, is seeking to create non-invasive or minimally invasive brain-computer interfaces that could allow troops to communicate with systems from aerial vehicles or cyber-defense systems more quickly than they could with voice or keyboards; in short, soldiers could potentially fly drones or drive tanks with their thoughts alone. "DARPA is preparing for a future in which a combination of unmanned systems, artificial intelligence, and cyber operations may cause conflicts to play out on timelines that are too short for humans to effectively manage with current technology alone," said Al Emondi, the N3 program manager last year, when funding for six projects was announced: "By creating a more accessible brain-machine interface that doesn't require surgery to use, DARPA could deliver tools that allow mission commanders to remain meaningfully involved in dynamic operations that unfold at rapid speed." The research agency has awarded funding to six groups under the N3 program, each investigating a different method of enabling humans and machines to communicate at thought-speed but without the need for surgery.

Will AI Save Us From Ourselves?


It is the year 2050. The world population is roughly two billion people, just 25% of what it was thirty years ago. Back in 2018, the United Nations had predicted that we were approaching the point of no return on climate change. Unfortunately, by the time humanity took serious, meaningful action to the threat, it was too late. The Earth's temperature spiked destroying agriculture, triggering massive worldwide flooding, creating incredible natural disasters, and forcing people to migrate north… or underground.
