Robots And The Autonomous Supply Chain

#artificialintelligence

Autonomous technology continues to make an impact on the supply chain. The autonomous supply chain, applies to moving goods without human intervention (to some degree at least) or aiding in achieving inventory accuracy. One of the more interesting examples is the Belgian brewery De Halve Maan, which in an effort to reduce congestion on the city streets, built a beer pipeline under the streets. The pipeline is capable of carrying 1,500 gallons of beer an hour at 12 mph to a bottling facility two miles away. Autonomous technology is seen in warehouses and stores, on highways and in mines, and in last mile deliveries.


Drones and self-driving robots used to fight coronavirus in China

#artificialintelligence

China is deploying robots and drones to remotely disinfect hospitals, deliver food and enforce quarantine restrictions as part of the effort to fight coronavirus. Chinese state media has reported that drones and robots are being used by the government to cut the risk of person-to-person transmission of the disease. There are 780 million people that are on some form of residential lockdown in China. Wuhan, the city where the viral outbreak began, has been sealed off from the outside world for weeks. The global death toll from coronavirus topped 2,100 people this week, with over 74,000 infected.


How Artificial Intelligence Is Helping Fight The COVID-19 Pandemic

#artificialintelligence

From its epicenter in China, the novel coronavirus has spread to infect 414,179 people and cause no less than 18,440 deaths in at least 160 countries across a three-month span from January 2020 till date. These figures are according to the World Health Organization (WHO) Situation report as of March 25th. Accompanying the tragic loss of life that the virus has caused is the impact to the global economy, which has reeled from the effects of the pandemic. Due to the lockdown measures imposed by several governments, economic activity has slowed around the world, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has stated that the global economy could be hit by its worst growth rate since 2009. The OECD have alerted that the growth rate could be as slow as 2.4%, potentially dragging many countries into recession.


Artificial Intelligence Vs. COVID-19: How Is AI Helping To Fight The Pandemic? -

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) often raises concerns about privacy and deception apropos of facial recognition and forged entities. However, the massive outbreak of the novel coronavirus is now driving most of the technology companies and experts to look for AI's abet. Since the first report of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Wuhan, China – the virus has now spread to at least 100 other countries. Nevertheless, the undisclosed information holds the key to the certainty that the artificial intelligence warning system, run by Toronto startup "BlueDot" flagged a news report from China about enigmatic pneumonia distressing the residents of Wuhan, back in December 2019. As China leans on its strong technology sector, specifically artificial intelligence and data science to track and combat this pandemic, tech leaders like Alibaba, and Huawei chose to accelerate their company's healthcare initiatives.

The Autonomous Supply Chain Logistics Viewpoints

Autonomous technology continues to make an impact on the supply chain. The autonomous supply chain, as I am writing about it here, applies to moving goods without human intervention (to some degree at least). One of the more interesting examples I have seen is from the Belgian brewery De Halve Maan, which in an effort to reduce congestion on the city streets, built a beer pipeline under the streets. The pipeline is capable of carrying 1,500 gallons of beer an hour at 12 mph to a bottling facility two miles away. As we've written about here quite often, autonomous technology is mainly seen in warehouses, on highways, and in last mile deliveries.


5 Retail Innovations That'll Blow Your Mind in 2020

#artificialintelligence

The same survey reports that those that use these technologies are noticing improved customer experience performance and higher customer satisfaction. But what do these technologies look like in real life? And what retail innovations can we expect to see today as a result? We interviewed 5 retail innovation leaders at NRF 2020's Innovation Lab, and they showed us how they're using emerging tech to change customer experience in 2020 and beyond. The subject of inventory management may not evoke fun and excitement – at least not in the traditional sense.

We are facing one of the worst pandemics the world has suffered in recent decades. Evoking the famous words of Winston Churchill, weeks of strain, sweat, and tears await us. However, are preparing to stop such an illness, not only because we have the best doctors or brilliant scientists on our side. But because, for the first time, technology is going to become a fundamental ally. There is something called Artificial Intelligence that has already been shown to work is one of our best weapons.


Microsoft Research Uses Transfer Learning to Train Real-World Autonomous Drones

#artificialintelligence

Perception-Action loops are at the core of most our daily life activities. Subconsciously, our brains use sensory inputs to trigger specific motor actions in real time and this becomes a continuous activity that in all sorts of activities from playing sports to watching TV. In the context of artificial intelligence(AI), perception-action loops are the cornerstone of autonomous systems such as self-driving vehicles. While disciplines such as imitation learning or reinforcement learning have certainly made progress in this area, the current generation of autonomous systems are still nowhere near human skill in making those decisions directly from visual data. Recently, AI researchers from Microsoft published a paper proposing a transfer learning method to learn perception-action policies from in a simulated environment and apply the knowledge to fly an autonomous drone.


'Pandemic drone' could detect people with infectious symptoms to limit the spread of coronavirus

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Experts are set to unleash a'pandemic drone' to help limit the spread of coronavirus. The drone is fitted with sensors and computer vision, allowing it to monitor and detect people with infectious respiratory conditions. The system could also identify people sneezing and coughing in crowds, offices, airports, cruise ships, aged care homes and other places where groups of people may work or congregate. Its creators hope to deploy the drone in six months and in various hotspots where'the most amount of detection is currently required.' Experts are set to unleash a'pandemic drone' to help limit the spread of coronavirus.
