5 Top AI Trends

#artificialintelligence

Here are 5 significant artificial intelligence trends to look forward to that will affect myriad industries on an international scale led by giant tech companies that are now investing huge sums in artificial intelligence research. Last year, implementations of AI rose significantly in so many platforms, tools and applications around the world, impacting healthcare, education and other industries as more and more people are opting for e-solutions based on AI and machine learning. Then there's the automotive industry with self-driving cars, the agricultural sector opting for intelligent robots to tackle the sowing as well as insecticide spraying on crops; the list goes on. As tech industry giants, including Google, Facebook and Amazon, invest billions now in AI and machine learning research, let's explore how 2019 is unfolding on this front. Major chip manufacturers including Intel, Nvidia, AMD and ARM aim to produce AI-powered chips to speed up the operations of applications that run on AI.


Artificial Intelligence in Transportation Market Expected to Witness a Sustainable Growth over 2027 - The Market Research News

#artificialintelligence

Artificial intelligence in transportation helps the transportation companies to ensure public safety for their service. Artificial Intelligence in transportation makes use of various concepts like deep learning, computer vision, and context awareness to know the way the drivers handle their resources. The global artificial intelligence in the transportation market is experiencing high demand due to the increasing popularity of the autonomous vehicle. Various organizations are using AI in transportation solutions for data collection and decision making. The growing use of autonomous vehicles, and need to control the operational costs are the major factors that are expected to support the growth of artificial intelligence in transportation market whereas failure in performance is the major factor that is expected to slow down the growth of this market.


Why is the white hot Chinese tech sector cooling down?

#artificialintelligence

China's once scorching tech sector is cooling off. "Winter is coming," laughs Lin Liu, a 29-year-old Shanghai tech worker. Electric vehicles, industrial robots, and microchip production all slowed recently. Big firms like Alibaba, Tencent, and search engine Baidu have slashed jobs. Overall, one in five Chinese tech companies plans to cut recruitment, says jobs site Liepin.com.


[REPORT PREVIEW] The Age of AI

#artificialintelligence

But the idea of AI -- of machines that can sense, classify, learn, reason, predict, and interact -- has been around for decades. Today, the combination of massive and available datasets, inexpensive parallel computing, and advances in algorithms has made it possible for machines to function in ways that were previously unthinkable.1 While the more obvious examples such as robotics, driverless cars, and intelligent agents such as Siri and Alexa tend to dominate the news, artificial intelligence has much wider implications. Gartner predicts that "by 2020, algorithms will positively alter the behavior of billions of global workers."2 Markets & Markets expects the AI market to reach $5.05B by 2020.3 This report lays out the current state of AI for business, describes primary and emerging use cases, and states the risks, opportunities, and organizational considerations that businesses are facing. It concludes with recommendations for companies thinking about applying AI to their own organizations and a look at some of the business, legal, and technical trends that are likely to shape the future.

State's driverless, robot shuttle debuts at Farmington's Station Park

#artificialintelligence

The wave of Utah's transportation future has debuted in Farmington. The Utah Department of Transportation, in partnership with the Utah Transit Authority, has launched their new "Autonomous Shuttle Pilot Project" -- a program that features a robotic vehicle that will travel to different communities throughout the state over the next year. The vehicle began serving Station Park, Farmington's large retail hub, on June 13. Anne Williams, a consultant for UDOT, said the shuttle will operate from noon to 6 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays through July 6. After Station Park, the shuttle will move to different communities throughout Utah for the next year.


Stanley Robotics Join Parking Talks to Discuss Autonomous Vehicles

#artificialintelligence

Autonomous vehicles are continuing to cause a stir within the parking industry, and barely a day goes by without another hypothesis of the impact they will have on traditional parking. But how realistic are these visions of an autonomous future? Stanley Robotics is already providing autonomous valet parking at several airports in Europe, and during Parking Talks, Stéphane Evanno shared his insight into what the future might hold. "So I don't think they play a big role today. They are visible and people can hear a lot about self-driving cars and find a lot of information about more robots coming. But they are not here today, they are not running real businesses today, at least not in the airport industry. But they are here enough to make people think differently and plan differently. "For instance, as you know, airports are very regularly conducting master planning exercises.

Chinese AI & Conversational Commerce Market Overview: Alibaba Enters Connected Car Market

#artificialintelligence

Alibaba has enabled the AliGenie virtual assistant in Audi, BMW, Honda, Renault, and Volvo vehicles. This article in The Motley Fool identifies a range of services that AliGenie enables as the conversational commerce portal to Alibaba's Taobao and Tmall marketplaces as well as to Alipay: It also acts as a hub for a wide range of smart home devices. Last year, Alibaba introduced Tmall Genie Auto, a version for connected cars. BMW and Volvo initially agreed to install Alibaba's speakers in their cars, and the company recently added Volkswagen's Audi, Renault, and Honda to its customer list. However, China's smartphone shipments fell 14% last year, according to Canalys, due to the saturation of the market.
