Artificial Intelligence aiding fight against coronavirus

#artificialintelligence

DUBAI: Four months into the battle against the latest strain of the coronavirus, it is clear that humanity must deploy all medical and technological tools at its disposal. Roughly half the global population has been placed on lockdown and billions of dollars are being poured into vaccine research, yet the total number of confirmed cases worldwide has hit the two million mark. With no sign of an imminent breakthrough, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to speed up the search for an antidote to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19 is a no-brainer. In fact, scientific institutions and governments have already been harnessing AI to generate possible solutions to the global public-health emergency. Shameer Thaha, CSO at Accubits, a UAE-based AI and blockchain focused solutions and development company, says AI is playing a key role since day one of the fight against humanity's common foe.

Samson Williams on LinkedIn: #AI #AINerds #Skynet

#artificialintelligence

I'll miss it as I'll be in Dubai at the AI Everything Conference that week. Otherwise I'd be groveling and begging Professor Jim to let me hang out with the cool kids. The moral of this rant is that, as George Pullen was saying the other day, everyone needs to be aware and engaged in the artificial intelligence conversation. Don't let the #AINerds skip making #Skynet and do something far more deciduous. Deny your children of a secure, private, data sovereign future.


3D Printing in Concrete - Constructech

#artificialintelligence

Robotics have a mixed history in construction. Some work, especially in prefabricated building offsite, while others have not been successful, particularly when used onsite. However, that may be changing as more equipment companies are exploring the use of robotic technology and applying it to construction. One of the technologies that has shown promise is in the use of robotic arms and gantry equipment for 3D printing of concrete walls. From one of the first, if not the first, completed buildings constructed in this method, an office building in Dubai, to the research work being done by Chinese and U.S. companies as well as others in the European Union, building onsite using what is referred to as additive manufacturing techniques is moving rapidly.


Drone taxi company EHang stock opens year lower than its IPO price

#artificialintelligence

Will 2020 be the year of drone taxis? I'm going to peg it on'unlikely.' Drone taxi company EHang, which made its debut on the stock market in December 2019 with a public offering price of $12.50 per share, opened on its first trading day of 2020 in the $10 realm. But $10 might not be too shabby. While EHang stock hit as high as $13.70 per share, it has also dipped as low as $7.84 in the short timespan that it's been on the public market.
